Good

The weather was on our side this year being pleasant at 40 -45 degrees with partly sunny. The march was easy, it took no time to get to our start and we began soon after we made it to our position. The crowd was light, but this is due for the popular part of the parade isn’t until later with the string bands and Fancy brigades. The float looked great with the Emperor’s chair and the Emperor sitting in it. The crowd loved the Jawas and Chewie.

Interesting

The skit went well, though it would not have hurt to do a little practice. All around effort was great. The ride back to the park lot was fun with most members riding on the flat bed; waving to surprised and awe struck on lookers

It was a great time (although a little strange being fired at by Stormtroopers. Surprised )

Wanted to be a RFT ever since I saw A New Hope in elementary school: Glad my first time out was at the Mummers. Should have my costume pics ready to submit for approval shortly, and hope to troop with you all soon! Very Happy )
