As usual, because of where this event falls in the calendar this will be a very last minute decision for me. Still awaiting my final work schedule for this particular time block... and it won't be out for a few weeks.


No problem....I have added another category to the list up top....for those in your unique situation. I hope you can make it again this year. Very Happy

I'm planning on making it down for this. I'll also see if I can get some more Terrapin members to come down for this. Hopefully I'll be in my Hoth gear, if not it'll be my RFT/"Corvette Pilot"(got called that at Air n Scare).

UPDATE:

Gina Canady of Garrison Tyranus has acquired R2KT for the parade and will be letting us use her truck for her transport. If we can get C3PO here then he can be in the same truck as KT. We would just need to construct a support for 3PO.

I am still working on getting 2-3 more droids. It would be great if we could get (member from Echo Base) Chewie again for the other truck too.
Wishful thinking....

Again...lets see those numbers increase. I would love to see us hit 20 for this 30th Anniversary of the Parade as well as it being the 30th of ROTJ

Dave Turnbull does Han, not Chewie.

As for the droids, do they really need a truck? Don't they have wheels and could roll down the road? Great news about R2KT!

If Dan is able to hold on, how about having a square floor (could be metal or wood) with three or four poles (same length) that connect to either a square or circle at about mid-section/stomach height that would be big enough for him to turn around. Dan could stand inside the square or circle and hold on when the vehicle moves.

Or...

If Dan is able to sit in his 3PO costume...someone could reconstruct the chair from the Endor Ewok village scenes from RotJ. The chair could then be secured to the truck and then Dan secured to the chair. That would allow him to wave to the people as he goes by. Then we get Ryan and Dave tied to poles and a thing of fire wood underneath them. Smile

Do we have any Ewoks?

Well we don't have any Ewoks around here unfortunately.
As for the Droids, they would need to be in a truck. With the road conditions and the length of time down the route their servos would fry. They just aren't made for "road trips" They are better in the back of the truck on a platform or such so that they can be seen
As for Dan and his 3PO, I don't know if he can sit or not. but I like the idea if possible.
Just remember, Dan cannot see anything in the C3PO suit so standing in between 4 poles might prove difficult and trying to turn to grab onto another pole might be impossible.
I think we will need to come up with a harness system instead

Yes what Joel said the battery packs would not last the length of the parade. Which is why they must be transported


I am thinking a harness made out of seatbelt material would be sturdiest

I do believe her truck has both 3 tie downs on the side of the bed, as well as a roof rack, so you should be able to attach your harness at those points

Well it looks like we wont be having a C3PO this year. He is already committed to Steel City Con that same weekend.
We DO HAVE R2KT though and I am still trying to get a couple more droids for the parade.

WE ARE NOW A MONTH OUT FROM THE PARADE AND WE HAVE 11 PERSONS MARCHING.
I would love to get 20 on the roster.
Rick & Dawn Kerman, Barry Maher, Garth, Andrea would put us up to 16

And I am still planning on having the PRE PARADE DINNER FRIDAY NIGHT.
If we would like to try somewhere different this year, by all means let me know.

I hate to do this, but I have to back out. Sad I'll try to make it next year.

What happened? Everything looked like it was falling into place.

Has anyone heard from Rick and Dawn?

We could use a few more Rebels here. The 501st have almost 20 now...:-[
