Just got back from the concert. It was PHENOMENAL.

I got to see a few of you there. I'm not sure who is who yet but before the concert I saw Boushh, a Rebel Pilot, A Tie Pilot and Leia standing together. The crowd was too big then for me to introduce myself but you guys looked great!

After the show my girlfriend and I bumped into Karyn in her Jedi Costume. There weren't a ton of people around so I took a second to say hello. She gave us a couple quick costume tips and I was able to hold her fantastic lightsaber! (I have saber envy)

Overall a great night! Thanks Karyn and the rest! Very Happy

Great concert and a fantastic troop! (even though I was on the 'other' side Laughing )

The show was great. Atlanta traffic and accidents hit he hard getting there, but we got there just after 6. R2 got in the door and was instantly mobbed. I was told I had to move because of fire codes, blocking the doors... but when I went to move him I was told I could not move him. The security guard was really giving us a hard time. In the end it all worked out.

The concert was cool beyond cool! Surprised I was in awe the whole time.Mr. Green

Khanbob42, I wish we were able to introduce ourselves. It was so crazy with all of the people wanting to take pictures. But I'm glad you had a good time. I'm sure we'll have other opportunities to meet each other.

Dan, I wish I would've known where you and R2 were. That would've been a great photo opp for people. And like you said some of the security was kind of hard to deal with. Me and Susan/Yodafiend were stopped by a woman when we were trying to get back to the dressing area. I was in my Leia costume, and was heading back to put my stuff up, and she would NOT let us back to the main dressing area. Even when we told her who we were, she didn't believe us. Rolling Eyes She was insistent rant that we were NOT going to go back there. I was thinking to myself....."OK, OK, she's doing her job, but COME ON!!!" It's called communication people. shoot me

But over-all I had a wonderful time!!! pompom

I was mainly up in the front, first at the front middle door and then Dan Baker let me use his spot and he led a parade of people to another spot. So I ended up between the Chewie display and the merchandise store.

I never really saw anyone, except for Dan Baker, before the show. It was kind of strange not seeing anyone.

Liz (Tie Pilot) and I were headed in that direction but never made it that far as we were hemmed up by people wanting pics.

Thanks to everyone who came out. You could really tell that the public appreciated seeing us there and the kids were thrilled! Very Happy

Beth

I remember seeing you getting mobbed for pictures afterwards while I was getting R2 to the front door... it was crazy.

Hey, I'm glad you two spoke to me! Remember if you have any questions, we're happy to help. We'd like to see you approved and trooping! Smile

(BTW, this Jedi thing about "no attachments" doesn't work.... lightsabers are like potato chips... you can't have just one... they get kind of addictive. Laughing)

I agree with everyone... it was a wonderful experience...the smiles on the kids' faces... and the parents' and grandparents'... one very handsome silver-haired gentleman was just beaming as he took pictures of multiple grandchildren. Brenda was great at getting the Padawans to do the "back to back" pose with the sabers. And one little clone was just meekly holding his blaster at his side until we encouraged him to pose...

Also it was great to see some of those costumes up close. I mean what kind of nerd obsesses over the seam in Plo's hood... Wink

Like everyone, Randy and I had a blast. It was wonderful seeing everyone and the concert was Fanastic!. After we get home, I'll try to post some pics. I saw some on the Ga garrison side and I'd like a set of them, too. If you haven't seen them, give them a look. Let's do this again in March when the Atlanta Symphony plays SW.

Here's a note I received today:

Hi Beth and Steve,

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you and all your troops!! We wish we would've had more time to chat with you all at the end of the show, but things were moving rather quickly on the load-out end of things. We are all grateful for helping us complete such a wonderful experience for all those Star Wars fans out there! I hope everyone had a great time and enjoyed the concert. Kids big and small just glow when they see you out there. Please relay our gratitude to all your troops.

Thanks again,

Wendy


Great job everyone! Mr. Green

Beth

This was one of the best experiences ever. Having Anthony Daniels there was such a great surprise. I'm just thankful I was able to come even though I couldn't dress out. Nothing would have kept me in that hospital!!!!! When I saw my doctor on friday, first thing he asked me was "how was the show?"..lol. Thanks, Beth, for coordinating this great event!!!! And it was great seeing old and new faces.
