Jody who is organising the joliet libray event has made a request for jedi. He has had an idea for a possible face off between jedi and sith and was wondering how many jedi would be interesting in participating. he has put up a thread on WI garrison to get feedback

http://midwestgarrison.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=179&t=16084

heres the idea if you are not a member. Nick and I are up for it, it could be alot of fun and a big crowd pleaser

Looking for feed back and thoughts for this idea.????? :blink:

Always adding to this event I was kicking around an idea with a few members last year and even Nick and John the light sabers sword fighters.
This would be a kind of roll playing and for fun for all involved including the public.

Think of the old super friends cartoon from when we were kids. At the end of the opening you see the super friends coming as a group from the left side of the screen and the legion of doom members from the right and clash in the middle of the screen. This would be along those lines.

On Clinton Street in front of the RT 66 Diner next to the library is the cross hairs location.
What we would do is pick a time during the event like 1 pm? and rally all the Jedi to be in front of t he museum and all the sith and bad guys be on Chicago street on the other side of the library. People start seeing the good guys gather here and the bad guys gather there, they will know something is going on. A disturbance in the force you might say..We set it up where each side comes walking down Clinton street from each end and meet about 40 fee apart in the middle of Clinton. They stop there and (Skit still to be worked out) say Vader threaten the Jedi group in some kind of movie line. Then the Jedi mouth off and throw it back at him and his Sith group. This can go back and fourth a couple times. Then Nick and John each the pro sword fighters that show up. Each one would step out of aside as kind of the battler for that side and light saber duel it out in the middle of the two groups. Each group cheering and egging on for their Jedi or Sith fighter.
All this while the public looks on. Maybe then the end could be one side together as a team does the FORCE PUSH against the other side . The other side all kinda takes a step back like there were hit by the force and it ends there. Both side turn and walk away and just disperse back into the crowds.

Nick and John are in for the Idea , pending how many others want to play along.
I would get the Joliet police Dept and the library staff to help with crowd control during this to keep the street clear before and during the roll playing battle event.

This would work, figure you have the Jedi from the rebel legion who seem to be showing up each year in bigger numbers. Then we get Vader, Maul , Dark Lord, other sith and being secured by a large number of security Stormtroopers . We could have the stormtroopers walking in a large group with the sith lords in the center for protection then split apart when they cross the Jedi . Thats when Lord Vader steps out with his team to face down the jedi.

This would be something that we just do and not made public to the public on a time schedule maybe? It could be a way for us in costume to further interact with the kids and public. Like by say having a jedi walk up and ask a kid or family. Did you hear if the dark lord and his band of cronies still think they can take on the jedi? Heard something about them tying into it on Clinton around one pm?? Kind of to get the word around in a fun way. Same with when you are doing a picture with a family. Lean over and tell the kids to watch out . there is a disturbance in the force today,,,do you feel it? This would be a lot of fun for us and for the kids to see go down.

Please let me know your thoughts if this is a good idea Smile , fun idea Very Happy , needs help idea Confused: or to much and not worth it idea Crying or Very sad

I will be willing to help put it together and work with both sides or if someone from each side would like to rally their side and meet in the middle so to say we can do that. We have six months to come up with some fun ideas.
The things said can be from the movies, comics or even books. Look at it like reenacting but from a future war in a galaxy far far away.

Thoughts??????

Maybe we can get some stormtroopers to volunteer to be decapitated. White buckets rolling down the street......really traumatize the children of Joliet.
