***** Festive additions to your kit are highly encouraged *****


This is going to be an expanded version of our regular monthly visit to the hospital. They have graciously extended the cap on the number of costumers, lengthened the time we are there, and will be reserving large rooms for us on all three floors so that the children can come to us and spend time with us. There is also the potential to visit other sections of the hospital such as the Pediatric Emergency Department, and any other wards that would like us to be there. Child Life is spreading the word so we'll know closer to the date.

The plan will be to have a minimum of 3 face characters that will be reading stories from "5 Minute Star Wars Stories", one on each floor. If we have more than three, shifts can be taken, if only three we will rotate them between the floors so that the children get to see each character. We also hope that we can get a Vader, Emperor, or Kylo that is comfortable playing the part of "Darth Santa" and allowing kids to sit on their lap to tell them what they want for the holidays. Since the kids aren't allowed to move between floors "Darth Santa" will spend time on each floor. The remainder of the participants will be split up between the three floors and will walk around the halls, playing with the kids, visiting those that can't leave their room, and generally spreading cheer. There will also be an art therapy session that any and all participants can attend to help the kids as well as create artwork themselves.

We won't know until the week of roughly how many patients will be there, so this could be a very busy troop, or it could be very slow. I'll be given an update the week of with potential census numbers and we can evaluate if we have too many or need more. With it being a 5 hour window people can come and go as needed during that timeframe. The only ones that might be scheduled would be Face Characters who are reading stories, and "Darth Santa"(s).

At this time, I only have Generic Jedi approved in RL - is that acceptable for this troop?

Thanks,

Thank you.

I would like to sign up as Prahl, a “generic” Jedi - I. Have never been to an Inova Troop, but, have been wanting to participate for a while!

Thanks,
Joy

I would like to be added to the wait list for this event as a tentative attendee.

If I can go, I will appear in my OT X-Wing Pilot.

I'll be updating the first post with the relevant data as well, but in case no-one is reviewing it I'm putting it here too.

Link for the Groupings: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pxWoUF0kx0h-Ir9uSWGbRLGKhlsQpHGmNi5OijlURkQ/edit?usp=sharing

Since the patients can’t move between floors we’re going to rotate the three groups as well as the readers throughout the floors. This way they get to see all the characters that are there to wish them Happy Holidays. The obvious hope here is that we won’t have a lot of kids there over the holidays and we’ll be there a lot less time than planned. For now, I plan on 1 hour per group per floor, with a couple of extra activities like visiting the lobby for group photos and visiting any families that are checking into the hospital. We may also get to visit the Pediatric Emergency Department, as well as do an art activity with the resident art director.


The plan will be to meet on the 9th floor in the kids lounge, and split up from there. The hospital has given us a changing room on each floor, as well as reserved a large meeting area for us as well. If upon my arrival that makes more sense to use as a changing room I'll make that call.

We kick this off at noon, so arrive at whatever time you need to be ready by then.

For those that have never been this is my standard logistical post:

Muster time = Whatever time you need to be there, in order to be dressed and ready to go at noon.

Parking - Park in the Green garage, take a parking pass, I'll have a validated parking pass for you in the changing room.

Where to go once Parked - There is a sky bridge over to the hospital, or you can walk over at street level. Either way once inside the main hospital (from the green garage) go to the elevator bank on the far right side of the hospital and go up to floor 9. Once there if the nurses don't open the door just ring the buzzer next to the door and they should let you right in. Just beyond those doors take a right turn and go back to the play lounge

Extras: If you need to use the bathroom before kitting up, those are outside the ward, when you come off the elevators, they are the opposite direction of the doors into the ward, back behind the bank of elevators.

If you have any issues or questions feel free to call/text me (703) 220-4945.
