Bartlett Parade Mission Report – July 3rd 2010

Watch videos here ...

This was the 8th consecutive year we have done this parade and as in years past has grown and gotten more fun.
Doumak Inc once again donated over 2500 bags of marshmallows for us to pass out, Thanks to Jim DeJan we once again had the Death Star and trailer with a ned banner on back “TOO BIG TO FAIL” LOL

This year seemed to go a bit smoother as everyone got back to start in time.. BAIRLY, and while Hot, it seemed a bit more tolerable than past years. And just to clarify, The parade is about 2 miles long 

We have SOOO many costumes! Troopers Bikers, Tuskens, Ties, Rebels FANTASTIC turn out. If the could is right, I believe we have OVER 50 costumers there, Not sure what count was for total attending counting family friends and so on. We had 501st members from WI, Iowa, IL and IN attend! FANTASTIC!

We did run out of marshmallows about ¾ way through, but was better than last year when we ran out about ½ way.

The only Bad thing to happen was Jason 's wife Tara had a case of heat stroke and was taken to hospital. She was OK after cooling off and resting.

After the parade we gathered for a “photo” by our tents.. But this was a set up. As this year we had a very special event happen as one of our own, River, Proposed to his Girl Friend Ali.  Congrats !
A HUGE THANK YOU to EVERYONE who helped make this one of the biggest and best MWG events.

Special Thanks to Phyllis for all her help and driving, Targ for the Death Star and Trailer, Greg for Sound System, Robert for cooking, Jason for Grill, tent and other items, Doumak for the treats, Cathy for photos, and all the other running around and help she did, OMG so many people to thank for so many things. If I have missed you its not because I ment to leave you out.. Its just there was so much going on I couldn’t keep up with it all.

I’m sure I will be going back and updating this report for months adding to it.

Thanks to Ali for helping get a sign in sheet going. So hear is who signed it. If you aren’t on this list, Just post and we will add you

Some of the people on the list don't have numbers. Does this mean the list is everyone? Or just members?? I was there, and I should get a medal since the parade was 2 miles, but I'm pretty sure I ran 5. LOL!!

It was a fantastic time, and a HUGE turnout! I've spent hours trying to tag the TKs on my facebook.
