IL-Crystal Lake/60014 - Boys Birthday Party - TUES 7/10/12

Postby jweger77 » Sun Jul 15, 2012 7:57 pm

On an early Tuesday evening we braved the heat once again to help make the dream of a great young man named Nick come true! We suited up at my house and made (what seemed like on the map) the short walk over armored up. Of course, we had fun watching all of the looks from the neighbors, it's not until October that they usually see Vader around in the neighborhood!

We arrived at 6pm to give Nick a birthday surprise he won't soon forget! Nick was turning 20 on Tuesday and has always wanted to fight Vader. He never is picked to do so at Disney. According to his mom, this is something that he just couldn't let go and was always talking about it, almost obsessing at times. It's been tough to get him picked for this given his age, Nick just turned 20 on Tuesday. So, the phone call was made and we arrived, surprising Nick at the door. He immediately ran upstairs to retrieve his light sabers and the duel was on!

While the duel was interesting at times, as we were fighting not one, or two, but at times 3-4 18-20 year olds....I guess that's why the Rubies Vader helmet was invented. Things remained relatively peaceful, except for me getting occasionally whacked! Cheryl and Neil did a great job of helping keep things under control. After the battle, we took a lot of pics and marched back to my house.

Thanks to Cheryl and Neil for making it over for this one during the week.
