Sarah and I cannot come this year (it's a little too close to her due date). However, if we'll have enough folks to field a table, I highly encourage it! I have the big RL banner I can send down.

That would be awesome Bart. Someone let me know if we are having a table and I can meet you or Sarah somewhere to pick up the banner and it can come down with us.

I know if nothing else we're planning to do a meet and greet with ral going over 501st requirements and me going over specifically RL.

I don't know if we're going to have a table or not. since we're such a tight nit group here we decided on what we're doing without any thought to the division between the groups. an armor repair workshop, costuming demonstrations shell and fabric, etc.

Personally I'd be in the mind set to check with Brandon (501 squad head) and curt and see if there's an issue with sharing the table with propaganda of both. if someone feels the need to shell out the extra cash for our own table I won't stop you, but down here we're all family and I'd be ready to play it as such at the con.

(if I seem off on gramar it's been happening to me all day - my mental gramar and spell check are off. don't think I missed anything but bear with me.)

I'm also all for saving money and doing it jointly, provided it's an even split Smile I still hope we'd be able to fly the banner Wink

If you guys want a table (and we can field enough props to make it look decent), me and Kelly can sign us up for a RL table when I do our SFH one. We'll have 6 people from my house alone there and if I can get the tables together, we should not have any trouble manning them. Kelly can set up a good time to meet you and/or Sarah for the banner.

I'm sending in the info and payment next week for the other table, so let me know as soon as you can about doing one for RL and I'll get it at the same time.

It looks like Susan and I are going to be there. We were on the fence a bit until one of out friends showed some interest in going after trooping with us this past weekend. I am hoping to have my Tusken offical with the RL and 501st by then.

If you wanted to get a table I would help out where I could (props, manning, etc) so you are more than welcome to register for one. All i know is I don't have the money to do so. If you need anything else to get the ball rolling feel free to give me a call 4175274188 (if I don't answer I'll call back at the earliest convenience)

How much do the tables cost? If two or more groups are going to share one I'm sure we can take up a collection from among those groups to get the number (in my experience con tables run 40-70, especially if we're providing other value to the con with our members being there in large numbers and looking cool and doing other fun stuff).

That's not bad... if we're talking of splitting this w/ RL/501st/and FF and for just one table, that's just 8 people pitching in $5... I'd pitch in $5 on RL's behalf...
