I got another one for ya in Alameda (its where I live). It’s a 4th of July parade.

The parade is 3.3 miles long, supposedly one of the longest routes in the country.

map


WHAT: City of Alameda 4th of July Parade
WHEN: 4th of July
LINE UP TIME: 8:00AM
ROUTE LENGTH: 3.3 miles - FYI if you are not used to walking much, this is advertised as one of the longest parade routes in the country. Though, the Rose Parade route was much longer at 5.5 miles.
WEB SITE: http://www.myalamedaparade.com/application.htm
DEADLINE TO FILL OUT OUR APPLICATION: June 17th. However, it is first come first serve. "The 1st 150 applicants to meet the standards will be accepted for the parade. " So if we leave it to the very last minute, the parade may already be full.


This is just a thread to gauge interest and I'll post more info as I get it.
Cross posted to Golden Gate Garrison.

The website has been updated for the 2010 parade and can be found here
Line-up (starting at 8 AM) takes place along Lincoln Avenue between Grand Ave and Park Street.

----------------------
Edited by Kay Dee for clarity. This is an event idea at this point and not a formal event request. We do not have specifics on number of participants required, deadline for application for the parade etc. I'm waiting to hear back from Joshua and once we have more details and have an idea of how many people can do the parade we'll figure out if this is a go Smile

Hi Josh,

Can you send me the details about this parade? How do we sign up officially, what the rules are - etc? Deadline date to apply? I'm happy to have members suggest event ideas but I need to know about them as CO and need to make sure all the details have been reviewed Smile

I'm super tentative on this event. Meaning, usually I'm at my parents for 4th of July so I don't think I'll be in town for this. But if something really odd happens I'm interested in participating if we can get a sufficient group together.

I'm tentative too, depending on my schedule. So, if I can make it, I better start going to the gym so I can last 3.3 miles of this hike...LOL

I just wanted to clarify - this is an event idea at this point. Not a formally approved event request. I'm waiting to hear back from Joshua on details as far as the parade registration form and requirements. Deadlines, minimum number of participants needed - etc.

I just know in speaking with some of you this weekend you were under the impression that the parade was a definite go, and it's not to that stage yet. But we do need to know who is seriously interested so we can gauge if we have enough marchers to make it a go and get the parade registration filled out.

Thanks Smile

Again, sorry for the late reply, I've been gone for training with little internet access. I have updated my first post with a map of the 2010 route and the link to the 2010 webpage for the parade, which has an online application and I will work with Kathy on getting it taken care of for the group.

June 18, 2009 at 5 PM is the deadline for all entries.

OK - we have a little time. I will check the link you sent me for the parade rules and application after WonderCon. Too swamped to even look at it all now. Smile

OK - I had a chance to finally look over the application for the parade.

Before we fill it out we need to figure some things out as a group.

1) We need to know who will be doing this parade 100% for sure! We don't want to fill out the application and have a bunch of drop outs that will prevent us from fulfilling our obligation once we've applied. The form asks for specific number of participants, and the length of our group - etc. So we have to figure out who is in or out ahead of time. We can't register if everyone is only tentative.

2) Are we inviting the 501st to participate in this with us?
This will effect the way that the registration form is filled out, and what the entry description is that we fill out to be read by the announcer as we walk by. If we are inviting the 501st then I can get in touch with the GGG. But I can't organize the parade because I'm usually out of town on the 4th of July.
3) What do we feel should be the minimum number of firm committed participants signed up to actually fill out the registration form? I'm thinking at least 6 people from the RL. That gives two to hold the banner, 4 to walk behind. If the 501st joins us, I'd say at least 8 total between the two groups since you'll need 2 more people to hold the 501st banner.
4) Do we have anyone who has a vehicle (like a truck) to lend to the parade? Music? We need to know this in advance of filling out the registration form.

If any Endor Base members want to chip in with ideas for the parade, items you can provide for our entry (like vehicles) now is the time to chime in.

We'd need to get this figured out by June 18th.

Wow, that is a looonngg hike in Jedi boots. I would probably not do this one.

Remember everyone...this is the same time as the Marin County Fair too. Last year I know a lot of us were quite busy with that.

Maybe we should try to pick a parade that the 501st is already a part of first, get an entry together and see if we can walk with them. I am sure with the recent better cooperation, this may work. Plus...get our (ahem) feet wet on local parades as the RL.

Sorry to be so anti here...Just my 2 credits...

Relevant point Scott, I'm waiting to hear from Mike Morris if RL is being invited back to the Marin County fair again this year. I don't know if it is going to depend on if they have room for the x-wing or not. I'm not sure if our being there is contingent on having an x-wing, or if we'd just be able to roam as rebels. I just haven't heard a word from Mike so until I do, I don't know if we have a role there this year. I guess I should get in touch with him huh?
