Save the date- the Richmond Christmas Parade is scheduled for 12/5/15 this year, at 10 AM!

The website for the parade is at http://richmondparade.com/

Well here we go again!!!!....Christmas in August....Dont we wish the weather was a little cooler. Very Happy
Hopefully this will put a spring in your step.
Just like last year, and 31 parades before that, DOMINION is doing it again.

They already have the application up online to be filled out by returning members and once again we are going to try and group up with Garrison Tyrannus so that we can split the entry fee since it has gone up this year from $150 to $200 . I will be looking once again for help with this entry fee from those who are participating and if you arent and you are feeling generous by all means thank you.

The typical information is below.

The date this year is SATURDAY DECEMBER 5TH, 2015 AT 10:00AM
The Parade will depart from the Science Museum on West Broad Street at 10am and continues East until ending on Seventh Street around noon. Last year's holiday event attracted more than 250,000 spectators from all over Virginia, with thousands more watching a live television broadcast. It is the largest single day event of the year in Virginia. This year's Parade will have huge high-flying balloons, elaborate floats, star spangled marching bands and as always, SANTA CLAUS!
The route is about 2 miles in length down the main thoroughfare in Richmond
This past year, both the Rebel Legion and the 501st marched in the parade.

We are considering this a Medium profile event, meaning, this is an official Rebel Legion event that does not involve Lucasfilm Ltd. and is for RL promotion or charity. A formal costume is the requirement unless otherwise requested/permitted.
All decisions regarding costume types for events are up to the Base Commander, Event Coordinator, the Rebel Legion Event Officer, and Legion Council.

Just like last year we will try to have an RL Dinner the night before and a lunch after the march. And just like last year, we will need to be there around 8 AM in order to be counted for the event.
Last year's weather was absolutely BEAUTIFUL



The cost of marching is $200 for a non profit organization WHICH HAS GONE UP since last year. We had an incredible turnout with about 30-32 showing up and outnumbering the 501st.
We are going to do it the same as last year with regards to the money involved. I am going to take donations until right before the deadline for the application to go in so that we have a FIRM COMMITMENT from attending persons. I know that the base will have to cover some of the cost up front to put the application in, but I am hoping that we as members of the base will be able to cover the cost without relying on any one individual.

Just to give a little background:
This parade is sort of like Richmond's version of the Rose Bowl Parade in California. The Parade is broadcast LIVE on the local PBS network of Richmond, and will be rebroadcast on Christmas Day and will be ON DEMAND from COMCAST.
TV: The Parade is broadcast LIVE on WTVR-CBS 6 the day of the parade from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

A few years ago a small group of RL and 501st did an interview with CBS 6 and it went over great and we had a fabulous time doing it.

Here is the link to the parade info and pics from the past ones:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/76014257@N08

I am hoping we can get everyone from last year as well as more from neighboring bases. As always the more the merrier.
I will be extending this invite to Terrapin Base and anyone in Freedom Base can invite others to join in as long as it is anApproved Rebel Legion Costume

If you are interested in joining in the Reindeer Games just like last year, post your interest and we will go from there.
It would be great to see some of the folks that werent able to attend last year, be able to come this year.

I would love to see a good sized group this year, especially with the addition of some of our newest and returning members.

Please lets please try to keep this to one Face Character per movie/costume
Example....
you can have multiple Leias as long as they are in different costumes and such...no 2 EP 4 Leias in the White Gown, but we can have
ANH Leia in Death Star white gown
ANH Leia in Ceremonial outfit
ROTJ Leia Bousch
ROTJ Endor Leia
ROTJ Ewok Encampment outfit

You get the drift...
same with Anakin, Obi-Wan, Han, Luke, Padme, etc., etc.

Thanks


Thanks in advance and lets make this one bigger and better than last year. Very Happy

All I know is that Bill's bet still stands that if we can get 66 members of both groups he will buy drinks for everyone....so LETS HAVE AN ORDER 66 THIS YEAR!!!


STAY POSTED FOR MORE INFORMATION

Here is the location of where we are meeting on the morning of the 7th. They have updated it for this year with the new Redskins facility and such.:

http://richmondparade.com/webfm_send/121

If you look at where it says DIVISION 4 along Leigh Street in the back, that is where we are mustering.
If you have a parking pass, which if you are coming to the dinner tonight, you can pick up from me, you can park in the OVERFLOW PARKING or DMV V LOTS
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE AT THE MUSTER POINT NO LATER THAT8:15
WE STEP OFF AT 10....

If you are going to the shuttle lot, here is that info and MAKE SURE TO GIVE YOURSELF AT LEAST 30 MINUTES TO GET TO THE MUSTER POINT FROM THE SHUTTLE

Quote:
"You MUST arrive at the set-up area at DMV and the Science Museum NO LATER than 8:15am "

"You must be in the Line Up area and checked in with your Division Captain by 9:00am
Roll Call will be at 9:30am. Any Units not in line will not be allowed to participate."


Here is parking info.


There is a shuttle lot which is listed below that will take you to the muster point at the Science Museum. This lot is about 3 blocks down on 7th Street past the Coliseum where the parade ends.
Here is the info about the lot:
There is no physical address for the parking lot.
It is typically a GRTC lot and lot for VCU called Lot I
VCU LOT I
and it is where the shuttle will pick up.

It is literally right across 95S on 7th Street. You can get to it by taking the 3rd street exit off of 95 South and turning LEFT on Jackson, and then another LEFT on 7th Street. Go across 95 South and the lot is on your left.


It is also
Stop ID: 3032
GRTC Transit System http://www.ridegrtc.com

7th + Parking Lot (I Lot)
Richmond, VA 23219


or you can plug this into the Hyperdrive Navigator:
992 N 7th St
Richmond, VA 23219

------------------------------
As far as the dinner the night before I am still open to suggestions but O'Charleys midtown is still fine with me as it is our old standby:
6291 W. Broad Street
Richmond, VA 23230-2204
(804) 673-8233

If you are coming in from out of town or are in town and want to join us feel free to mosey in and grab a brew with us. We will probably be there around 7:30ish.

I'll put that I'm going, but with things that have been going on healthwise, this may be the first year I might have to hop in the truck accompanying us about halfway through.

This event is always a difficult one for me to make a commitment due to where it falls in my work schedule block and also weather, but for now I'm planning to bring Boushh. The husband will be Colt.

PP donation sent, ID# 02101174DE7717934.

I can come as Jocasta Nu if you don't have one yet. I will not be able to walk the entire route (physical handicap). Will there be a way for some to ride on open trailer or something?

It will be very cool to have you here.
We have a couple of others who might need transport during the parade.
IF our other Chewie is able to come then he will most likely ride in the truck and we will have others back there too.

However much you can walk is completely up to you.

you can make a donation to my email: jsweb3@comcast.net
we are only paying a third of the entry fortunately since the 501st and the Mercs are joining us.
Whatever you want to put in is fine.
The dinner is usually at O'Charleys at the corner of Horsepen and Broad street on Friday night.
6291 W Broad St, Richmond, VA 23230
I can have a parking pass for you to park at the muster point if you come to the dinner. there are also Handicap areas right near where we muster too so you should be able to park there.

We usually meet for dinner around 730 and are there for a couple of hours.

As far as the hotel. the one I recommend is the
Comfort Inn Conference Center Midtown
3200 W Broad St
Richmond, VA 23230
and is abotu $69 per night

I am hoping to be able to do this, as long as weather cooperates and I can bum a ride down with Doug, hoping there is a vehicle Chewie could ride in
