Now that we are moving super duper fast and all.
Would anyone be interested in visiting some ill kids in the hospital?
I was thinking the first part of April. This is a perfect time to do something that doesn't cost you anything but means the world to some sick kids.
Please post if interested and I will set a time and date.
Thanks

Funny story...
I called my contact at UCI and she said she was thinking of me and us Star Wars Fans. She was one of the guest at the CSC ball. She said she had a blast and was BLOWN away with the costumes and the star war fans. She was looking for me at the party but had not luck and wondered if I was even there.
Long story short she plain out stated "You Guys Rocked!"
She would love to have us on April the 6th "Friday" starting at 3:30. So reporting time will be 2:30 at the Parking lot of UCI.
The UCI center across from the Block of Orange off the 22 freeway on City Drive and Chapmen.

I have a really important side note!
These are sick kids, some live there some are just staying for a short time. You may see things like kids with no hair or bandage wrapped around their heads with tubes running in different directs. Never the less, they are kids and that is why we do this.
If you go you must be happy, kind, strong and most all please do not ask how they are feeling. Some kids may be too tired to event say hello but please keep in mind that they are happy to see you.


With that being said please post what costume you are planning to wear.
And yes, Mike as TK would be very cool, I have space for 6 to 5 members and this is a Rebel Legion event but 501st members will be welcome so lets work together and make this a great success.
Thanks all.

A few tips concerning any kind of hospital visit:

-don't say "Get well soon" or "See you later", some of the kids are terminal and they are trying to forget that for a moment
-don't ask them what is wrong, again they are trying to forget the reality of their situation
-a big DON'T - don't volunteer if you have had any illness in the 7 days prior to the visit; this could be disasterous if you brought even a simple cold into the hospital

Sorry to sound so grim, but I usually get these instructions before visiting Children's Hospital here in San Diego. For me, the hospital visits are the hardest yet most rewarding event. Sad

Who is in 100% for this date and what costume will you be wearing.
Thanks

This sounds like something that is sooo worth participating in. I might get off early that day. Where is it? I work in downtown L A & if it's not too far maybe I can attend.

Is a plain ol' generic Jedi costume OK? (Mine should be finally finished by then, but hasn't been passed, yet.)

That will be great, it is located in Orange across "the Block of Orange" and down the street from the Anaheim Statuim.
At the UCI center but our first meeting point will be at Rubio's at the block at 1:00pm or a late Lunch and then we will drive over.
It would be wonderful if you can make it.
Anyone else?
Thanks a ton
Rob

Sounds like this event is in the outer rim on the other side of THIS galaxy. So, I will not make the committment, but will join you if possible, if you've got the address, if traffic isn't too horrendus etc.
