IL - Winnetka - DK Star Wars in Your Stocking - SAT 11/12/11

Post by beans »

An imperial presence was requested at "The Book Stall" bookstore in Winnetka, IL for DK Star Wars in Your Stocking http://us.dk.com/static/cs/us/11/features/swiys2011/
2 Stormtroopers and a shadow scout suited up and made an entrance at 2:00 to a packed house! The store had taped off a corner for a meet and greet with the 501st members, and elsewhere in the bookstore kids could work on DK activity books or claim their prize from the prize station. The library also had multiple star wars book displays through the store. There was a steady stream of patrons until about 10 minutes til the event ended, so we were kept busy! The troopers took pictures, gave out high fives, signed autographs, and were quizzed at trivia by some younglings who had clearly been studying at the jedi library ;)

Big thank you to Eric and Brian for making it out, you guys are awesome!!

Trooping duration: 2 hours

Troopers:
- Eric Pfeifer (TX 3667) - Shadow Scout
- Brian Troyan (TK 8968) - Stormtrooper
- Adriane Bean (TK 4541) - Stormtropper

From the event contact:
We really loved having you three at the store. Thanks again for a terrific afternoon.

Fittingly, they had us in front of the "fashion and beauty" section. :)
Buckets off photo forthcoming!
