Fiesta Bowl Parade Meeting Report
Sunday 12/5/10 Applebees
Representing the RL, Andy Romero

As stated above, practice day is Sunday, December 19, 2010, at Steel Indian School Park from 9am. To 12pm. Also, if you are wearing a helmeted costume please try to bring it along so that Wayne can better organize the lineup.

Float move will happen on Saturday, December 18, 2010. Please pray for us, we will be transporting it from Scottsdale to downtown Phoenix in the wee hours of the morning. Lol

If any member of the RL is wrangling, please PM Wayne, he would like to use your cell phones as walky talkies on the day as communication. Also, you will need to either have purchased a Fiesta Bowl shirt, or a Black RL shirt. They will be used to distiquish you as a wrangler. Remember, comfortable shoes, it’s a long walk and you will be carrying water for more than just yourself. Wrangling in the parade is an important job, it can be stressful on the troops in costume, and you will need to be prepared.

Lastly, as this float is made to represent two different scenes from ANH, and ESB, it cannot be used as a catchall for anyone needing to drop out of the parade because of physical problems such as overheating and the like. Please look to your nearest wrangler for support. Wayne will address this at the practice.

Thank you for your time,

Andy Romero

Un-forseen circumstances have changed the float presentation a bit as it relates to the "ESB" section, the carbonite Han Solo is no longer avaialble so I and others are making modifications to the float but not the characters on the float.

STAGING OF VEHICLES:
All specialty unit vehicles participating in the Parade and auxiliary vehicles should enter the staging area by driving east on Bethany Home Road from 7th Avenue. A member of the staging team will meet your parade vehicle at 3rd Avenue and direct you to your staging area. Specialty unit vehicles attempting to enter the staging from any other location will be turned away and directed to enter the staging area from 7th Avenue and Bethany Home. Please communicate this new entry plan to all of your vehicle drivers, and plan your arrivals accordingly.

Specialty unit vehicles are expected to arrive at their designated time. The arrival schedule is designed to make it easier to place your vehicle in the lineup without endangering the many Parade participants and spectators at the event. Please refer to the Specialty Unit Vehicle Arrival Times Schedule and be on time.

Desert Edge High School Marching Band Busses: Busses will enter the staging area from 7th Avenue onto Bethany Home Road. The Buses will proceed east and stop short of 5th Avenue where the band members, chaperones and equipment will be off-loaded. The buses will exit the staging area once off-load is completed and proceed following the stipulated route here to the de-staging area.

Turn right on 5th Avenue and proceed south to Palo Verde. Turn right on Palo Verde and proceed west to 7th Avenue. Turn right on 7th Avenue and proceed north to Maryland Avenue. Turn right on Maryland Avenue and proceed east to 12th Street. Turn right on 12th Street and proceed south to Turney Avenue. You will meet up with the de-staging chairman there and follow his instructions to proceed west on Turney Avenue to 7th Street. Turn left on 7th Street and proceed to the parking area designated by the de-staging chairman.

STAGING OF WALKERS AND RIDERS:
All specialty unit walkers and riders must arrive in the Specialty Unit Staging area by 9:45 Am., arriving earlier is recommended. Personal vehicles are not allowed to access the staging area. All specialty unit walkers and riders should park personal vehicles at the end of the Parade route in the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center parking lot located at 7th Street and Indian School Road. Enter the VA Medical Center parking lot from 3rd Street and Indian School Road, as 7th Street will be closed for the Parade.

STAGING OF WALKERS AND RIDERS CONTINUED:
Place the provided parking pass in the front window of your vehicle to assist de-staging volunteers in directing you to the appropriate parking location. Please follow de-staging signage and the volunteers’ directions. A shuttle will be available to take you to the staging area. Groups with children participating should designate an adult leader to accompany the group on the shuttle and to the staging area. Large groups can arrange to arrive in the staging area in their own buses but must contact the staging Chairman (Bill Rath, 480-759-3416) to discuss specific requirements.

Desert Edge High School Marching Band Members and participating chaperones are excluded from this section as they will be arriving directly at the staging area by their reserved school buses. (See detailed information in the Staging of Vehicles Section above).

SHUTTLE:
Pick Up: The shuttle will pick up specialty unit walkers and riders in the parking lot of the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center (refer to the de-staging map 7) to take you to the staging area. Shuttles will run continually from 6:00 am to 10:30 am. The shuttles will take up to 30 minutes to get to the staging area so please plan accordingly.

Drop Off: The shuttle will drop off at 3rd Street and Bethany Home Road (refer to #12 on staging map 3). You will need to proceed west across Central Avenue to the area around 3rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road and locate your group.

When you arrive at the staging area, you will be welcomed by staging volunteers who are there to facilitate the orderly placement of all groups within the Parade. Space is limited and can vary from year to year, so please be courteous and keep your group within the space allotted you.

Also, extend your courtesy to the many neighbors and property owners along Bethany Home Road by staying off the lawns, disposing of garbage in the containers set up for this purpose, and keep sidewalks and driveways unobstructed.


VEHICLE MOVEMENT:
All auxiliary vehicles associated with specialty units MUST be out of the staging area by 9:45 am and should leave the staging area headed west on Bethany Home Road to 7th Avenue. Any vehicles that need to be at the de-staging to meet their group after the parade should park in the VA Medical Center parking lot. All other parking requirements must be coordinated through the staging or de-staging chairperson.

DE-STAGING:
The de-staging area begins at the Grand Canal. Specialty units should continue heading south on 7th Street until directed to turn west (right) into the VA Medical Center Parking lot. Please proceed quickly through the de-staging area (refer to the de-staging map 7). Water and restrooms will be available at this location.

Note: There will not be a shuttle or any transportation provided back to the staging area after 10:30 am, so please park in the VA Medical Center parking lot.

EVENT DAY GROUP PHOTO:
Star Wars Club Members, Wrangler’s, Volunteers and Desert Edge High School Marching Band Members, please exit the de-staging area quickly and proceed west to the Amphitheater Area located in Steel Indian School Park next to the lake and the large American Flag. Our Event Group Photo will be taken there.

PARADE ROUTE INCIDENTS:
Due safety and event restrictions it is not possible to stop the float under any conditions other than a life and death or medical emergency unless directed by a Fiesta Bowl Official. It is not possible to add riders to the float or the vehicle during the parade as restraint devices must be provided for all riders.

Costume Failures: Costume characters that experience a costume failure, not significant enough to warrant a repair or leaving the parade route should continue on with the group. (Wranglers and non-costumed volunteers should be looking for dislodged or broken parts while walking to recover and return to the individual at the end of the parade).

Costume characters that experience a costume failure and can make repairs without falling to far behind are to proceed to the nearest wrangler where you will both go to the side of the parade route to complete the repairs and then catch up with the unit.

Costume characters that experience a costume failure and can not complete repairs are to proceed to the nearest wrangler where you will both exit the parade route and go directly to one of the marked 1st AID stations along the route. Utilizing a cell phone contact the specific event coordinator from the individuals group and inform them of your situation as well as your location. Wait there for a vehicle from our group to pick you up after the parade.

Non-Emergency: Costume characters, wranglers or volunteers that are feeling ill or feel they can not complete the parade route but do not need medical attention are to proceed to the nearest wrangler where you will both exit the parade route and go directly to one of the marked First Aid stations along the route. Utilizing a cell phone the wrangler is to contact the specific event coordinator from the individuals group and inform them of their situation as well as your location. Wait there for a vehicle from our group to pick you up after the parade.

Emergency Conscious: Costume characters, wranglers or volunteers that feel they are in immediate need of emergency medical attention are to proceed to the nearest wrangler where you both will proceed to the side of the parade route and request emergency medical attention by way of your cell phone or the nearest parade official which ever is fastest. Once the situation is stable and the emergency medical personnel are treating the individual the wrangler will contact the specific event coordinator from the individuals group and inform them of their condition and all pertinent information so that we may dispatch personnel or family members. The wrangler is to remain with the individual at all times as their comforter and custodian of personal and costume property, (NOT AS A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL OR LEGAL GUARDIAN).

Emergency Un-conscious: Costume characters, wranglers or volunteers whom may become incapacitated are to be immediately removed from the parade route if safe to do so and taken to the side of the road by who ever is immediately available to assist. One event coordinator and one wrangler will exit the parade route with the individual and remain on site for medical and parade staff personnel. The wrangler and the event coordinator are to remain with the individual at all times as their comforter and custodian of personal and costume property, (NOT AS A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL OR LEGAL GUARDIAN). The wrangler or event coordinator may render basic first aid as needed and with in their comfort levels but must surrender treatment once certified city and private medical professionals arrive and begin administering treatment.

This information was received a few moments ago.... The patch run can not move forward without more sales..... We must receive 42 more minimum or there will be no patches....

Quote:
Wayne, I need you to contact me ASAP. The patch run has offically failed at the time of the deadline. I have very few orders from the RL, one from the R2 builders and none from ISO or Mando Mercs. Please copy and paste my thread over to them as soon as you can!

In addition the t-shirts are also experiencing low sales and may be subject to a higher rate if we do not meet the dollar cut off quota.. If you want to buy these items and have not done so you need to make payment arrangments ASAP. The DSG Merchandise Office is not in a possition to fund for unpaid merchandise. Please make you payments and place your orders ASAP.

Locals: If you are interested (these make the perfect holiday gift!), now is the time to order/pay!

If attendees from out of state wish to order the Fiesta Bowl Parade patch or t-shirt, please PM me and I can tell you how to order/pay. Remember, these can ONLY be ordered by parade participants.

Thanks!

Because of the large numbers of people and the footprint of space we will be taking up I request that all volunteers be at the staging area no later than 8:30. This will allow us time to get into our respective possitions at least once as well as to ensure no other entries encroch on our space needed to form up. Once we get everyone in place your free to mingle with the crowd etc.

Please take note that the buses depart approximately every 15 min. It is a 30 min round trip for the busses so make good use of your time commuting and dressing out.
