Subject: LFL Approved Event: New Jersey Jackals // July 22, 2017

Hello friends in New Jersey!

The New Jersey Jackals baseball team is offering an open invite to costumed fan groups to attend their event on July 22, 2017. This is approved by Lucasfilm. For event details and participation please contact the team directly. Contact information for the event is listed below. Please feel free to share this broadly with your clubs!

Contact: Sarah Wild / swild@jackals.com

Directly below is what we send to the teams regarding Open Invites for Fan Group participation at sports games:

All SW themed events with Major and Minor league teams are now considered OPEN INVITES. This means we do not have to cast and teams do not have to pay performers. Teams must welcome all fan groups on a first come basis and cannot ask for specific characters or specific amounts. They can set a maximum limit based on accommodations. Open Invites are just that: an invitation to fan groups to show up at an event in costume. Teams cannot direct fan group members to do any activities or be anywhere specific at a specific time. They may provide the groups with a list of activities to self-organize and participate in, but it is at fan group members’ own discretion. We strongly prefer that characters do not throw out first pitches, participate in puck drops, sing the National Anthem or things of that nature – if they want, fan group members may escort a child or fan to the mound, etc., but must not be directed to do so. Characters should not hold, wear, sit in or stand on any branded item or logo, especially with a team emblem. The fan groups are welcome to be photographed with others wearing the team logo/brands or in front of signage featuring the team logo/brand, however. We strongly suggest that teams provide a handler for costumed fans during activities to ensure the safety and security of said costumed fans and to protect them from overzealous game attendees. Costumed fan groups must be referred to as members from their respective fan groups and not as official SW/Disney/Lucasfilm characters.

Please do not RSVP with LFL. The corresponding team contact is listed above if you and your members are interested. Spots fill up fast - not all fan groups will get to participate in events where there is a set limit, which are based on a teams’ bandwidth for accommodation.

Fan Groups invited to attend:

501st: Northeast Remnant Garrison
Rebel Legion: Echo Base
Mandos: Raquor'daan Clan
R2 Builders
The Outer Rim Collective Costume Club (O.R.C.C.C.)
The Dark Empire: Umbara Temple
Saber Guild: Corellia Temple

May the Force be with you!

Hey there, is there any more information on this? What's the call time, how long the troop is, where to park, if there are changing areas, etc? Jeremy and I could be available but need a bit more info before we're able to commit. I tried joining the NER forums to see if there's any info there, but my registration hasn't been accepted in there yet even though I'm 501st as well.

Let me know if you are still waiting for access I'll sort it out for you. We had a slew of weird access requests the last few weeks so the web team has been slow to sort through and make sure ones are legit lol.

Here's a quick copy/paste of what we have so far:

LOGISTICS:

OUR ROLE:

To help generate excitement for the event and mingle with the attendees. Like last time we'll most likely be asked to have some fun with the activities.

EVENT SET-UP:

The event is outside, we will not have a table display and no presentation is needed. Remember, this is "buckets on and in character" whenever you are out in the public, but because of the summer heat make sure to hydrate and if you need to break duck into one of the back areas.

CHANGING AREA:

A secure area will be provided.

REFRESHMENTS:

Water will be provided. They have food available for purchase, however not all teams give us vouchers or snacks so if you need food plan accordingly (bring money or food yourself).

DATE:

Saturday,
July 22, 2017

TIME:

Arrival: 5:00pm
Troop time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

* time is important, the game starts on schedule so we NEED to be ready and prepared on time. I'm double checking times with them but believe this is correct.

LOCATION:

Yogi Berra Stadium
27 Clove Road
Little Falls, NJ 07424

Yogi Berra Stadium is on the campus of Montclair State University, which is located in Upper
Montclair, New Jersey, one mile south of the junction of Route 3 & 46. Take the Valley Road
exit off Route 46.
◦ From New Jersey Turnpike: Exit 16W to Route 3 West to Route 46.
◦ From Garden State Parkway South: Exit 154 to Route 46 West
◦ From Garden State Parkway North: Exit 153B to Route 3 West to Route 46
• Parking is located directly across from the stadium entrance and is free. There will be parking
attendants directing you

POINT OF CONTACT:

Sarah Wild

CHARACTERS REQUESTED:

Open to 501st members. Other fan groups are invited and will attend but they are coordinating on their own. Cannon and formal costumes preferred.

MEMBERS ATTENDING:

1) Steve - IC
2) Donny - ID
3) April - spotter
4) Ed - ID
5)
6)
7)
Cool
9)
10)


AND UPDATE FROM SARA:

The gates will be open at 5:00 and the game starts at 6:05, we have a delayed start so we can get the fireworks in without disrupting our Little Falls neighbors too late. I will confirm with concessions that water will be available to all of your members- we will either provide a water station with water dispensers and/or bottled will be available. We look forward to seeing you at the game!

Thanks,
-Sara


We are also pretty light on turnout but hopefully between all the groups we can pull it off. I don't know for sure if they are doing on field and during game activities with us like other teams but I'll try to find out. Laverne and I are usually on the same email chain to keep on track lol Smile

Thanks! I signed up a second time and this time it looks like it took but if I have any trouble I'll be sure to reach out. Turns out we're going to stay closer to home this weekend but hope to see you at a future troop!
