I'm going to work half a day so I should there by 12:30 or so. Whenever anyone else can get there is fine.

I'll be a stormtrooper for this one. My Vader inner cape is being worked on and my lenses always fog up really bad at this cold event.

I'm going to look for some cold gear Under Armour and get some handwarmers to stick under the armor.

I'll be there for a while, not sure what time I can leave work or for how long at the moment. Already ran into a problem with the building here this morning. We will see how this day and the next go.

Good to hear Rick! We usually park in the Champaign Library parking lot behind WCIA. If you get there before me, look for Caesar. He's the ex marine who runs the Champaign County Toys for Tots.

Tonight I bought new thermal underwear and a bunch of hand warmers. I also found foot warmers that go in the soles of your shoes. Big R had them.

Chip, will there be a place inside WCIA to suit up or will this be a parking lot change?

We usually dress in the WCIA meeting room. Caesar told me to look for Linda. He won't be there until later.
