Event Name: Star Wars Night with the Joliet Slammers
Venue: Silver Cross Field
Venue address: One Mayor Art Schultz Dr.
Joliet, Illinois
60432
USA
Event Start: June 4 - 6:00pm
Event End: June 4 - 8:30pm
Event Website:
Expected number of attendees: 2,500
Requested number of characters: TBD
Requested character types:
Secure changing/staging area: Yes
Comments: The Joliet Slammers are a professional baseball team 40 miles south of Chicago. Among our theme nights this year is a Star Wars Night, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. We would love to have some characters out to interact with our fans!
Referred by: Members of the Midwest Garrison have been to Silver Cross Field.

I just talked to our contact, and she is very excited we can be a part of their Star Wars night. The event is listed as a celebration of the 30th annv. of ROTJ.
I have been told we will have a secure room, with its own restroom, to change in. Water will be provided. Gates open at 6pm, so they would like us suited up and on the concourse by then, so thinking of a 5 pm show up time.
I asked about tickets for family members. The contact would like to get a ballpark headcount to see what they can come up with, a pair of tickets for each member, or more. I will update as soon as i get more information. Basically similar to other events, they would like us availble for photos and interacting with the fans as the gates open,and for about the first 3 or 4 innings. were welcome to stay as long as youd like in costume, but thats what i told the contact is the norm.

More info to follow

Hope we can get some people together to help the fans celebrate Star Wars!

Imps, and Mercs welcome

I am a go for this...
will likely have Artoo with me...

I will not have enough room in my vehicle to take Artoo home after the Library event so I am going to ask the Museum (where he currently is residing) to hold on to him till Tuesday and I can pick up Artoo on my way to the game...

If you can get a recommendation of where I can unload him at the ballpark
...that would be awesome...
as long as Artoo will be in the Jeep anyway..might as well put him to work..

I'd love to go to this but I get off work at 4pm and it takes me 45min to an hour to get home. Then I'd have to get my stuff and head down and their would just be know way I'd be able to make it.

Need to get the ball park a head count by tonight, so please let me know if possible.

They are really looking forward to having us, and have even allowed Dan Seimek from Bugs Pals to set up a donation station to help raise some money for the hope childrens hospitals book drive/troop in august.

Every trooper will get a free ticket for themselves and 1 guest. they have also passed on a discount code to use for saving on additional tickets if needed.

See you at the ball park.

Could you find out where a "droid wrangler" might be able to park?
or where any of us should park...
last time we were there when it was the Jackhammers...they did have a special place that they had us park..
but new owners...
new rules I am sure...

I just don't want to push Artoo for a real far distance or make several trips to bring him in in pieces...

Phyllis, i do know they have some spaces directly across from the main ticket office where we will be entering. My contact mis understood me i think, and was giving ideas where we could R2, not where you could go to put him together. Im planning on being there as early as i can be. if its around when you arrive, I will try to help you. I know they have 2 different elevators to get to the concourse from down there.

For parking she basically sent me this link, which basically says...park where you can. the city does stop charging for parking at 5 pm, so it will be free.

my cell # is 630-461-1623, call me if you have problems or issues.

No problem...I will wing it...
I plan on picking up Artoo just before the Museum closes (which is 5:00 PM) and then heading straight over there...

There are usually policeman stationed around near the entrance...
I can ask one of them if I can temporarily park in one of those spots near the door in order to put Artoo together and wheel him in...our changing area will probably be the room on the right as you enter...it's a nice room btw...
and then I can move the truck..
I think there should be no mistake what I am hauling..

and I will get there at around 5:00 PM
and the game is not till 7:00 PM...
so
there should not be a lot of congestion around the entrance at that time


Very Happy
