Despite the cramped changing area (well, we had 14 characters and 3 squires), this was an extremely successful event.  They gave us plenty of food and drinks, too.  We had a great turnout (both troopers and kids), and had a lot of name characters.  That allowed us to do a pretty good entrance.

Darth Vader, Count Dooku, and the Emperor were escorted in by the Biker Scout, Snowtrooper, TIE Reserve, and Night Sister.  After a brief intro by Dooku, the Commander and Gunner came in the back door with Luke Skywalker as a prisoner, and re-enacted the surrender scene from "Return of the Jedi."  The Rebels then came in to rescue him.  After a brief standoff, we went into the normal library routine.

The MC duties were split among Commander Stahlman, Count Dooku, and Luke Skywalker.  That allowed for some interplay, including Luke using a Jedi mind trick to get the topic to Jedi for the lightning round of trivia.

Tim organized the photo line, and EVERY kid got a picture (sometimes more), along with some adults.  The kids did pretty goid with the trivia andbehaved very well.  A lot had questions for us (and one had a lot of questions).  It got a little awkward with questions about how Dooku and the Emperor died, and what happened to the Stormtroopers who were on the Death Star.  

2 kids dressed as Chewie, with the Wookie howl mask.  There were also a Rey and a Kylo Ren.

After pictures with the kids, we roamed around the library and got a few more pictures with kids.  We posed for a lot of pictures with different books.

After we were done with that, we went across the street to a cafe that several of us went to for drinks (coffee and tea, not adult beverages) beforehand.  The workers there wanted pictures with us.  We might have a new recruit or 2.

It was great to meet Teri and Bill, who were in town for the Steeler game.
