11/04/2016 UPDATE: We're approved and will be marching in the parade!.

Event Name: 63rd Annual Piedmont Natural Gas Nashville Christmas Parade
Venue Address: 12th and Broadway, Nashville, TN
Event Start: December 3rd (Saturday), 2016 at 9:00 AM
Event End: December 3rd (Saturday), 2016 at 11:30 AM
Event Website: nashvillechristmasparade.com
Expected Number of Attendees: 100,000+

This is an event that many of us old timers have wanted to do since the earliest days of the Southern Outpost. Now it is finally happening!

We will a marching group with no parade float or vehicle (this time). This means that there won't be a backup vehicle for someone to retreat to if they have a problem. However, most everyone seems to be able to handle parades just fine.

My Phone Number is 615-403-8633

PARADE SCHEDULE

6:30 am - 7:15 am: Park and meetup at Parking Lot A at Nissan Stadium.
7:15 am - 8:00 am: Shuttle to Staging ground. Those needing to change at the staging ground should be ready to ride on the first trip out.
8:00 am: report time for our unit!
8:00 am - 8:15 am: Last shuttle ride to staging ground. EVERYONE MUST BE AT STAGING BY 8:15AM!

9:00 am - 11:30 am: Parade
11:30 am: Pack-up and ship out

STAGING GROUND
The shuttle will drop everyone off between 16th and 12th avenue. Those who need to change at the staging ground will change after being dropped off, then throw their bin onto the bus the next time it comes back. Adam will receive your bin at the parking lot and store it in my truck.

The parade staging ground runs between 12th Avenue and 8th Avenue on Broadway. We will on the south side of the street with the other marching groups.


PARKING & DISPERSAL AREA
Parking will be at Nissan Stadium in Lots A as depicted in the picture below. InShuttle will be transporting us to the staging ground. The parade will end or "disperse" here as well.

If you will be suiting up at the staging ground, it is imperative that you be as early as possible so someone can run your bin back to the staging ground.

After I leave for the staging ground, Adam will remain behind to distribute parking passes and collect bins returning from the staging ground.


PARADE ROUTE
http://nashvillechristmasparade.com/spectators/parade-route
The route is roughly one mile, officially starting at 8th and goes down Broadway, up 2nd and then ends at the east end of the Woodland Street Bridge, right in front of the stadium.

CHANGING & SHUTTLE INFO
InShuttle says that they would prefer that people sit for safety reasons, but that we can stand if we want. However, the woman I spoke with also said the bus driver can require people be seated if he/she wants. So I would assume the worst and plan on sitting down on the ride over. If this means you have to change at the staging ground, then here are your instructions:
  1. Arrive early and ride over on the first shuttle trip, which will be at about 7:15am.
  2. Put as much of your costume on beforehand as you can.
  3. The shuttle will drop you off and then head back to the stadium to pick up more troops.
  4. Be changed and in costume by the time they get back.
  5. Throw your bin into shuttle so Adam can receive it at the stadium.
The earlier the better. The last shuttle ride will be arriving around 8:15 at the latest. After the final shuttle ride leaves the stadium, there won't be anyone left to receive your bin. So your bin needs to be on its way back to the stadium when the shuttle is heading there to pick everyone up for the final ride.

GROUP PHOTO & AFTER PARTY
There is no formal photo planned. If time and space permit, we might do one at the staging ground, but most likely we will wait until the end of the parade to do it, probably by our cars, as most everywhere else is designated as float dispersal or balloon deflation areas.

I have not made any plans for lunch after the parade. Many of us will be heading to Clarkesville for Toys for Tots and/or the parade. But if there is interest, there are some nice restaurants downtown that we can get to via the Shelby street pedestrian bridge.

Awesome! Thanks Matt! I am a go for sure. I will plan on Wedge SS pilot unless I can get Poe pilot done and approved before then, which is not likely. Still need to do the whole flack vest, chest box, holster, and finish the leg flare holder. Then weather it so the slight variations in orange/red of fabrics doesn't look so obvious.

I've updated the first post with the current roster and most up to date information. We even have some interest from Alabama!

Just heard back from the shuttle service. Total cost is $400. I would greatly appreciate any help with that. The service is InShuttle. They will be ferrying us back and forth between the stadium and the start until just before the start of the parade.

The shuttle is a 25 person shuttle bus. I need to know if you can change at the parking lot and ride over or if you need to take your bin over to the rallying point and change there. If that is the case we'll need a handler to accompany your bin back to the stadium and store them in someone's vehicle.

As I've mentioned elsewhere tomorrow I am flying to NYC then to Bermuda on Friday for a sailing trip to St. Thomas, USVI so I will be unreachable next week. I will get back into Nashville on Sunday the 20th. Ed Gay has volunteered to answer any questions that the parade committee may have during that time.

Thanks guys. This is going to be awesome!

I would like to sign up Goldengirl616 (Patricia Winn) for this as an X-Wing Pilot.

Her boots just got mailed and will be re-submitting her costume for approval.

Very Happy

Thank you
