Name of Event: The Library Strikes Back Bash
Event Begins: Sat, Jan 19, 2013 02:00 pm
Event Ends: Sat, Jan 19, 2013 04:00 pm
Location of Event:
Washington Public Library
415 Lafayette St
Washington, MO

Way the event is connected to Star Wars: Star Wars day at the library. They will be doing activities related to Star Wars and our photo opportunities.

Will there be a place for troopers to change? Yes, large locked area

Will there be a secure place for troopers to store their storage tubs while trooping the event? Yes

Will family/friends be allowed to attend the event? Yes, open to the public

Are cameras allowed and can we take pictures at the event? Yes

Are weapons allowed on the costumes? Yes

Is there a special place to park at the event? Does parking cost? Free Parking

If appropriate, can we have a table with flyers and information about the 501st/70th Explorers? No

Are 501st, Mando Mercs, Dark Empire costumed members requested too? Yes, any groups are welcome.

How many costumed members are requested? As many as we can get.

Will lodging be provided by the local troopers for garrison members travelling a great distance? Contact me if your interested in coming from out of town.

Additional information or comments: (I apologize if this is a duplicate request. I posted a request appearance this morning on the Gateway Squad main page. This time I am posting on the 70th Explorers page.) Our event next month is called "The Library Strikes Back Bash." We are the Washington Public Library, and the wide appeal of Stars Wars is the reason we are planning this program. Our community recently invested in a library renovation/expansion. Since we moved into our new facility earlier this year, it has been our goal to provide interesting, high quality events to all segments of the population. We believe that fans of the Star Wars books and movies will be motivated to come the library for this event, particularly if we are able to advertise that the 70th Explorers will be making an appearance. People young and old love Star Wars, especially young males (a group we particularly love to see utilizing the library.) We know that every time patrons have a positive experience at the library, they are more likely to return and become regular users of our services. If your group is able to provide several members to for this event, you will be doing a great deal to support literacy in our community. Our event is planned as a two-hour open house with various stations in operation. Participants will be able to travel from activity to activity, engaging in games, making crafts, and eating refreshments. If your group members are able to attend the event, it would not be necessary for them to stay for the entire open house. A thirty-minute photo opportunity would be a huge draw in Washington. I would make certain that the local newspaper, The Missourian, publicized your appearance before the program as well as the appearance itself. Of course, we would also highly advertise your appearance in the library itself and throughout Washington. Thank you for considering this appearance and happy holidays! Ruth McInnis, Children's Librarian
