For the record I am a prosecutor (think law and order). I have been doing this for over ten years. I worked in Brooklyn, Nassau and Broome counties. Hope I didn't scare anyone.

LOL!

Here I pictured your Tuskin handcuffed at the the defendants table. With Luke and Obi-won on the other side!

Made me giggle like a school girl!

I was indicted for Assault, Manacing and Criminal Possession of a Weapon for the incident at the Jundland Wastes.

My attorney is representing me on condition that he can sue Obi-Wan for the intentional infliction of emotional distress.

And that is how lawyers killed Star Wars. Very Happy

Too funny!

As a side note and I hope this doesn't tick anyone off, I'll be at this event with the Mandalorian Mercs. (yes we were invited) Hope to meet some you face to face and say hi! If you want to find me look for the green and yellow Mando or ask for Nick.

Later!

Nick

Yeah, it's funny you say that. That's exactly how I thought, it's for the kids and fans, not the clubs, but you'd be surprised by how many guys don't talk to me anymore because I tell them I'm an active member of the Mercs.

I don't get it, but hey, I have fun with the guys/gals that still talk to me. I'm in it to have fun, entertain some folks, and meet great people, if you can't do that then I say, "don't need to talk to you."

Later!

Nick

Use the Loading Dock Door after Parking in the Lot.
the back drive is off Avenue of the Republic, to Lansdowne. There is a raking lot beside Kelly Pool. There are service/delivery signs in back...you will see quite a few staff cars. Security knows you would be coming.

Excellent, a friend of mine who lives very nearby is interested in squiring for us...is it okay for someone who is not a member to squire? He's a professional P.A. in the film industry so he's quick to learn and has an interest in this kind of thing. Besides providing general assistance and taking pictures is there anything he should know/wear/bring?
