IL-JOLIET SAT OCT. 02 FALL FESTIVAL-JACKHAMMERS STADIUM

Postby SHEEPDOG54 » Thu Sep 23, 2010 10:37 pm

On Saturday October 02, 2010 from 12:00 PM- 6:00 PM The Coalition of Non-for Profits in the City of Joliet will be hosting a Family Fall Festival at the Jackhammers Stadium(Silver Cross Field). It will be a Costumed Event for All! A Non-Canon event. I want to open this up for the Rebel Legion as well. So all Star Wars Costumes welcome!
We will have changing facilities and a location to store all of our personal items. I was approached by my Retired Captain who is spearheading this event. There will be lots of kids at this event and they will be passing out candy, hay rides etc.. We will have food and drink for all participating free of cost. I was also informed that we will have a kind of after set with food and drink to thank those that participate.
We are expected to do what we do best, Troop! We can show up when we want and leave when we want. We can also set up a table with our banner and so forth. We will not pay an admission and parking will be free for us!

That's odd. I don't think I've ever heard of something just dissapearing off the boards before. :o

I posted this in the Planning and its not there anymore. I also posted it here and couldn't find it. But if I looked it up it existed on the board but wasn't showing up in this section.

Weird...it says the other thread is here, and I just posted in it, but it's like...not here. It's a break somewhere in the display of the thread.

Is this still on, Jav?

Yes my Commander it is still on. I will be at the stadium at 11:30 AM. My cell is 815-791-3055. Any one coming give me a call tonight or tomorrow for directions. I will be waiting at our parking on Jefferson St right next to the stadium. We have special parking right next to the JPD squads. We will change in the guest locker rooms and have our bins secured in another room under lock and key. Hope to see you soon.

I will be there sometime between 1130 and noon. I have to wait for my nephew to go down for a nap (which is why I can't do the donation station in Mokena :( ) before I can sneak off to this event. I won't be staying to long this time because I would have to go back and pick up the little guy once he's done napping. He usually naps for 2-3 hours so I might be there til 3.

Hope to see you all there! :)

My cell is 815-791-3055 if anyone gets lost. When you get to the stadium on the Jefferson street side right after the over head railroad tracks, you will see squads, we are suppose to park there. Tell them your with the 501st and with Sergeant Esqueda or Butch( my dept. Nickname). I will be there waiting for you guys anyway. You will see my blue FJ Cruiser with the Midwest Garrison logos on the sides. See you then!!

Thanks to all of you for making this event. It was fun to troop with all of you! Valissa your Jedi and Hand tooled Saber were fantastic!
It was great to meet Tom, Jason and Patrick..........a very good group of people and an asset to the Garrison. And last but not least a big thank you to our Garrison CO Aimee our resident Biker Scout.
You heard it from the retired Captain how much of a hit we were with the crowd. He couldn't thank us enough except for the afterset party he told all of us about.
I will see all of you at the Midwest Garrison meeting next week!
