One of the new additions to our participation this year was our Death Star. Yes, you heard that right a DEATH STAR! Thanks to The Jolly Rodgers Detachment Leader Targ and his crew of dedicated construction staff we had a 10 foot diameter death star on the trailer this year.

The Bartlett Lions club, who puts on the parade, had us as the first participants after the politicians, fire, police ect. Crowds were yelling ¡§Look at the Death Star¡¨, VADER!,
C-3PO.. CHEWIE ! ! Not to mention YEA MARSHMALLOWS! Yes, this year Campfire Marshmallows donated over 3000 bags of marshmallows that they ran JUST FOR US, for us to pass out. And we ran out!

After the parade we held our yearly cookout on the ground of the fair. We are the only group allowed to set up tents there ļ Good food was brought from everyone and cooked by our chef Robert.

We ll had a great time and are looking forward to year 8 next year with even a larger group, and more impressive showing!

Thanks you EVERYONE for making this a great event!

Yes and No? They are in my Photobucket acount, but not in a separate viewable file...

If you want them, "Quote" my post, and the IMAGE URL should pop up for each. Copy that and post it wherever you like.

If that does not work, simply PM me and I will forward to you whatever photos you want.
