IL- Geneva/60134 - Kane County Cougars - Fri 5/2/14

Post by Sakic Jade »

Once again, the members of the Midwest Garrison were invited out to the Kane County Cougars Star Wars night. Usually on May 4th, this year it was bumped to May 2nd. We've had amazing weather in the past, so it was only fitting that this year be cold and rainy. But that didn't stop us from having fun and putting smiles on the faces of many fans.

We were on hand when the gates opened, and greeted the fans as they came in. We then led a parade of costumed kids around the field, and stopped along the first base line to pose for pictures. Vader was escorted to the mound to through the first pitch. We then spent the next few innings in the stands, posing for lots of pictures with the fans.

It was a lot of fun as a Tusken and I can't wait to finish it up with the outer robe, though I could go as a Bantha Rider. :wink: I just hope that the August game has really nice weather as there didn't seem to be a whole lot of people at the stadium this time. Too bad about the rain, though we did have a lot of fun with the fans while we were out there and the kids all seemed to have a great time with us too! Thanks for organizing this one Patrick!
