The Atlanta St. Patrick's Day parade will be upon us before ya know it. And I'd like to know if any of you are interested in participating this year. The GA 501st took last year off. But I would like to be able to do it again in March. I know the winter holidays are still on everyone's minds right now, but the earlier we get an interest going, the better. The application needs to go out no later than Feb. 15th. And if we apply after Feb. 1st, there is a late app. fee. The fee to participate is $25. I'll get more details on the app. fee after I get some info from the GA garrison's CO.

Anywhoo......if you want more detailed info you can visit the Atl. St. Pat's parade website here: http://www.stpatsparadeatlanta.com/


For those of you who are new and haven't been in the parade before, this parade is usually a big to-do. We get people from other bases and garrisons participating in the parade with us. Last time we had members from Corellian Base and the garrisons from Tenn. and Ala., and I think FL.

Also it's usually cold as h-e double hockey sticks out there. So wearing a costume that you can wear layers under is a PLUS! Going on the parade route through the tall buildings in Atl. creates a wind tunnel that just freezes you to the bone if your not properly "insulated". That's what's good about being a Rebel.....most of our costumes soft, and are able to wear layers under them unlike our plastic brethern of the garrison. Laughing But all-in-all it's a good time, and a neat experience. Cool

I should be a RL member shortly, so I should be able to attend. Unless something comes up before then.

Yay! Awesome!!! Mr. Green

Well the Ga501st has applied for the parade, so we're in. When I get more info, and closer to the date, I'll post a registration thread. Wink

Why do you gotta live so far north Sus? Rolling Eyes I'll ask around to see who all is coming from around your area.
