staging information from Tom:

staging is on North Berteau Rd-Position #2


http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=2000&bih=995&q=North+Berteau+Avenue,+Bartlett,+IL&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x880f074500fe92d1:0xdf808b2bd10b96a3,N+Berteau+Ave,+Bartlett,+IL+60103&gl=us&sa=X&ei=3LzrT_XoMoiorQH1353WBQ&ved=0CAUQ8gEwAA


Ok..
here are some photos as visual aids for those who have not done this parade...


Staging...
For most of us rebels...we come already dressed because our costumes have soft parts that we can drive in. If any of you have parts that you won't have on from the get go...then go to staging....drop off said parts at our staging area on Berteau....and head back to the cook-out area and end of the parade area...
DO NOT LEAVE TOTES OR ANYTHING ELSE AT THE STAGING AREA...just what you are going to be wearing...cuz when we leave to start the parade...it will get left behind.





the cookout area...which is also the area to park your car to be shuttled to the start of the parade.....there are usually a couple lots to park...in the lot just to the north of the park and there is a lot put on the grass at the corner NW corner of Stearns and S. Bartlett road. You can drop off your coolers, eats and what not by the canopies that will (hopefully) be up when you arrive....after dropping off your "what not"....then park your car in one of the lots ...walk back to the canopy area and there will be members shuttling and will take you back to our staging area to wait for the parade to begin.











PLEASE NOTE THAT THEY START TO SHUT THE STREETS DOWN TO TRAFFIC AT AROUND 11:15 AM....so you must be at the cookout area and ready to be shuttled to the start of the parade before that time....note that since a lot of people wait to the last minute...you might not fit in the last shuttle out of Dodge....so try to be there early...I know it is a pain to sit around in the heat and twiddle your thumbs...but...parades are all about the hurry up and wait....lol...


This is the parade route....the start marks our staging area...and end marks the end of the parade and the cook out/carnival area...
We go west along North Ave from Berteau to Oak.....south on Oak which changes to main...which changes again to South Bartlett...the parade ends at the corner of South Bartlett and Stearns Road.







NAR SHADDAA BASE GROUP PHOTO AND MEETING:

Augie would like to have a Base meeting before the parade...I suggest to have it at 11:30 AM at staging...I will make a last shuttle run just before 11:15 AM....

Also...
we would probably like to do our group photo at this time too....right after we complete the meeting?



FOR THE PARADE ITSELF:


Darryl's trailer will be decorated with red, white and blue bunting...and probably a rebel flag/and/or some of Crix's RL posters.



We could also use some kids to [b]carry our banner in front of Darryl[/b]

Does anyone have friends that they can maybe get to come and do either banner carrying...
Crix will be bringing a somewhat smaller banner (5') with on pvc pipe if we can get someone to assist in carrying it...
we don't have a lot of troops...so we would like to see if we can get other non-costumed kids or friends to carry....




MARCHING ORDER:



2 kids carrying Crix's smaller 5' banner

Darryl in RFT bucket driving vehicle with S5 and trailer

Janine in Classic Leia


Rebel Fleet Troopers -
Augie
Phyllis


Endor Troopers -
Crix

btw...

At this point I can't commit to anything that's not more than a few weeks out. Hopefully once February comes and goes I'll know more about what my free time will look like.

I'm planning on being there. Don't know what I'm wearing yet...

I do know I'm NOT wearing the snowspeeder jacket. I did it once so I could say I did it, and never again...

Are we still planning on the Jedi/Clones for this event or were we going more with the RFT's, ERS?

I'm for the Original Trilogy Trooper/Command/Pilots and have Crix in Crix Madine accompanied by Endor Troopers , Phyllis in Rebel Fleet Commander accompanied by Rebel Fleet Troopers and Pilots in X-Wing.

I don't think we have enough clone troopers honestly to make it look good.
