Well its that time of year again....Christmas in June....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 23 parades before that, Ukrops is doing it again. This time it is the BIG 25!!
I have spoken with Rick and have been put in charge of getting organized again for us to march this year.
The date this year is SATURDAY DECEMBER 6TH 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 -1pm. 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 Event Coordinator, the Rebel Legion Event Officer, and Legion Council.

The cost of marching is $150 for a non profit organization just like last year. We had an incredible turnout with about 30-32 showing up and outnumbering the 501st.
We are going to do it a little different this year with regards to the money involved. I am not going to take money until right before the deadline for the application to go in so that we have a FIRM COMMITMENT from attending persons. I know that I will have to cover some of the cost up front to put the application in, but I feel that if you want to march, since we dont have a general fund, you will have to contribute to the entry fee.
Rick was generous last year in taking care of the cost of the Freedom Base Banner, which looks great and will be up again this year.
We will take care of the monies when it gets closer.

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.
Last year Danny and I did an interview with NBC 12 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.richmondchristmasparade.org/parade.xhtml

I am including the list from last year of the interested persons and hopefully we can get everyone from the list 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.

Oh and BTW....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 Jawa Encampment outfit

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

Thanks

Just out of curiousity....did one of our illustrious officers delete some posts from this thread or was it someone outside the base?
There was some banter about Rick, Neil and Bill's sleeping arrangements when they come down for the parade, and they were there on Fri and now they arent.
Could someone please let me know how they go into the Sarlac Pit. Confused
Thanks

I removed them....they were starting to stray too much from the business at hand...wanted to set the example to staying on target.
