We have been invited by the 501st Stormtrooper Legion Garrison Excelsior to participate with them, in another Make A Wish Reach for the Stars Gala Event.

Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, NY

Saturday, April 21st at 5:30pm (we'll need to arrive earlier)

This event is limited to approved costumes and one of each face character (i.e. one Leia, one Han, etc).

Make A Wish are interested in approx. 5-6 characters. They are also interested in most recognizable - examples given where Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Stormtroopers. That said we want to have a couple helmetless characters for the safety of the vision impaired ones.

Nicky AKA DocBev, will be taking names for volunteers for the next month or so and selecting the characters by mid-March.


If you are interested here are the application details sent from the Garrison Excelsior Command Staff.

APPLICATION DETAILS:

On March 19th, 2007 we will begin the selection process. Each applicant must provide the following information:
First & Last Name
email address (or preferred method of contact information)
Costume(s) applying with (in order of applicant's preference)
Attendance probability (definite being 100%, maybe 50%, etc)
Max duration in costume without removing helmet/breaking character

This information along with photos (or links to photos hosted elsewhere) for each costume being submitted must be sent to Nicky Blum, PR Officer for Garrison Excelsior at events@garrisonexcelsior.com by March 18th at 11pm. Nicky will fill the slots based on: 1) Event Host preference, 2) Costume and Group Diversity, 3) Guaranteed Attendance, 4) Attendee Alternate. An announcement will be made to the leadership and the review committee representative of each group so that they can communicate and confirm attendee details (either accepted, accepted-Alternate, or declined) with their applicants.

A representative from each group will be requested to form a review committee. That representative should register for Garrison Excelsior's forums to keep in the loop on event details. The review process itself will take place via email.

Our goals will be to exceed the Make A Wish expectations, present a range of exceptional costumes, make this event a reality for all groups possible, build a process that can be used for other events with components added or removed as the event requires.

We're starting the review process for this event today and would like to get a representative from Echo Base's command staff to be on the review committee. Is there a volunteer?
I'll send an email about this later today as well.

OK Jeff, we'll have you do it as you've seen many of these costumes in person as well.

You should be getting an email from Darren today hopefully with details on the private forum (within Garrison Excelsior's forums) you'll be using to review the applications.

Jeff? No messages. Chris is on vacation, so I haven't seen him.

I was waiting for the official announcement, but had not heard anything, needed some prep time, so I asked...

Not that it really matters at this point, but originally the official announcements were supposed to come from Jeff for the Echo Base members, Chris for the North Ridge members and Darren for the Excelsior members participating. But if the chosed participants haven't heard yet, they'll find out sometime tomorrow after I email everyone volunteering the event checklist.
