The following is reprinted from a press release from the Wild River Festival:



WILD RIVER MUSIC, COMEDY & FILM FESTIVAL'S

CELEBRITIES OF STAR WARS LECTURE AND AUTOGRAPH EVENT



For the first time ever in the Twin Cities, from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, September 9th, 2006 at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, Rise Media is proud to announce "The Celebrities of Star Wars" during the Wild River Music, Comedy & Film Festival featuring DAVID PROWSE (Darth Vader), JEREMY BULLOCH (Boba Fett), and KENNY BAKER (R2D2)! They will talk about their careers, and sign the ultra limited edition Sid Maurer prints of their respective characters.





The ultra limited edition three print series includes Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and R2D2. These prints are original artist's interpretations by renowned American Pop-artist, Sid Maurer; an artist who was instrumental in Andy Warhol's career. These prints will become instant one-of-a-kind collector's items, are strictly limited to a print run of only 1000, AND WILL NEVER BE AVAILABLE AGAIN!



Cost per print: $150 or all three for a special collector's price of $400. Visa, Mastercard, Cash or Check accepted.

Ticket's to the event: $15.



You will need to purchase a ticket to the event even if you have purchased all three prints. Collector's who have purchased all three prints will have priority placement in line to ensure that your prints are signed. Be sure to look for the Dave Prowse Interview in Rise Magazine, the official magazine of the Wild River Music, Comedy & Film Festival!

I just got off the phone with the event organizer, and they want as many of us there in costume as possible.



They are offering us a discount of some type on both thckets to the event, as wekk as the prints. I do not know what kind of a discount we're talking about yet. If you can attend, please post here with what costume you'll be bringing. They want to have a list of available costumes ASAP.

We're still working out the details. I didn't ask for a table, but if things get going along well I'll see if we can get one. If you have the materials for that and would be willing to handle that, that would be great.

I'll see what kind of table stuff I can get from Hofmann. Just in case you can work that out.



Won't be end-of-the-world of it doesn't happen, I just hate to see good recruitment time go to waste.

Ok, I talked to the organizer again. I've got good news all around.



First off, all of us in costume are getting in for free. Second, we're getting the prints for $75 each.



Here's what's going down: We all need to be there at 8:45am, preferably all at once, so they can take us to the green room together and not have to make several trips. The troopers will escort Mr. Prowse onto the stage, and stand behind him while he's on stage. They also want the troopers to help keep the line moving when it comes to autographs.

Just talked with the organizer again. Due to a paper supply issue, the prints won't be available at the show.

But, they WILL have photos for sale at the show. You can buy the photos at the same time you purchase autograph tickets.



They are catering the green room for us, so we'll have plenty of snacks and drinks. They're also supposed to be giving us volunteer t-shirts for helping out.

I just want to thank everyone who came out. While the audience turnout wasn't what they hoped for, we gave them more of a showing than they were expecting.



Things didn't go exactly as planned, but I know I had a great time, as I'm sure everyone else did.



The TK's are sending me copies of their pictures, so I'll add them to mine and share them as soon as I can.
