IL-Joliet/60432 - Slammers SW night - Fri 6/6/14

Post by woulf »

Once again we were asked to participate in the Joliet Slammers Star Wars night. They scheduled their event to coincide with the Joliet Librarys SWD V, so this happening Friday night would "TIE" in with the whole Star Wars weekend. This was kind of a last miute grab and run with it event, as we didnt actually start coordinating the week before. A lot of people were tied up with the displays and planning of the library event, so it was difficult to find bodies. Thankfully some of brothers and sisters from out of state showed up to make it a very nice group. a HUGE thanks to the members of 70th explorers, Dantooine Base, Bloodfin, and Mos Espa base for showing up and making it a great event.

We basically did a free for all as we didnt really have any instruction on what they would like us to do. Vader didnt make it for the first pitch which was the only planning i received. so we suited up hit the main gates for photos, and then cruised the concourse for photos and interaction with the fans. after about the 5th inning most suited down and went to their way, while Chewie and i went to the suites for more pics.

There was no donation for our presence.

Hours trooped: 4 hours x 11 equals 44 hours
