Going to bump this. We have about 6 from Star Garrisson signed up, Mandos are also on board. Need some Rebels. I am probably going to do Plo Koon for part of this but any rebels that can make it come on down. If you need a hotel we can possibly arrange and cover with notice for Sat, night. Need more info call me 302 300 7658

Just an update and some logistics.

we have done a teaser on the museums facebook page, just a death star and the words coming may 20 for one day, more details to come.
We have had over 2400 hits on the post in less than 24 hours and it has been shared over 40 times just from our page, no idea on others who shared. In addition this one teaser post has people calling asking what is up and can they buy early tickets. So could be grea

Logistics update, we can still get 1-2 hotel rooms if need be for folks coming down. All family gets in the museum for free the day off.

We will troop 11-3 and do 3-330 group pics

We will have the death star hallway backdrop up, han in carbonite and the action figure box. Who knows what else if Arron and John have their way.

May be announcing couple of other surpises.

Evening event is a go. We will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of SW ANH

530-7 will be meet and greet with the troopers who can stay for this later event. It will be a premium of only 150. Local establishment providing food. Local toy store providing door prizes, probably a silent auction (So if you want to donate anything)

Capped off by a screening of ANH at 7pm (yes we have all of our license to show movies so good to go there)

We will have a limited edition T shirt for the event and the 150 who attend the evening event get a one of patch (yes patches so if you troop you get one) I will post up designs as we get them.

As I run the museum, we will be setting scenes up Friday evening, so you can come down and leave you gear at the museum overnight. We will have a large auditorium classroom that will be a secure non public changing space. And we will feed you lunch and provide beverages(non alcoholic )

Any questions call me 302 300 7658 or message here.Hope some of you folks can make it..
Thanks
