This came in through Request An Appearance.

I spoke with Darrin today. I knew he had also requested the Carolina Garrison. I'll be PMing our folks in that area to see if they can make it. Darrin just opened his shop and is looking forward to working with us. He will provide water and snacks.

Even though the request says 11-5 I told him we might not be available for that long. The shop opens at 11am. So folks, please post a time that is good for everyone. I told him to expect folks for a few hours.

I know that Heather aka Grizza or is it Grazza? will be attending as an Ewok and her husband and a friend will be there on behalf of the 501st. I'm trying to decide which of my costumes is best for that day.

aye! I can actually go to this one since it is in the AM/mid day! Smile I will have to leave by about 3pm to get home and cleaned up for work though. The 6pm to 6am shift on the weekends is making me a tad crazy lately.

I will for sure be going as the ewok (I need to air out the wok... it is a tad musty from storage) along with the 501st hubby. Our friends/members, Kamuizot & Kyrra will likely be there as well in their approved Jedi gear, although I can't confirm just yet.

excited to get back in the sweat machine,
Heather

Not sure how I stumbled into this one....
Unfortunately I will not be down there. Spring has sprung and there is a lot going on with family stuff.
I will be staying closer to home on some of the events for a bit.
thanks for the invite

Hey everyone, this will be my first event as a new member of RL. I'm very excited. Should I carry an FX lightsaber or a hilt prop? Dance Chewie

You can do whichever is more comfortable for you. Maybe bring both. Look forward to seeing you there! Mr. Green

The jedi Kamui and Kyrra can't make it with me and the hubby (AKA: my joel - to lessen the confusion Razz ) School finals the following week is to blame. *shakes fist at education* So wish Kamui luck with that!

Might help if I don't paste the link to Mafia Wars on Facebook. Rolling Eyes

Here is a photo of everyone who attended:



Also the store made a $100 donation to Make-A-Wish. Very Happy
