    Has there been any talk of doing one this year? I think last years was a great turnout.

    Jay,
    I was just thinking about this the other day. Last years party was great, even though I only came out for an hour or so. This year, if there is a party, I plan on staying for most of the day, and bring a few things with me.

    I'm in the Fenton area, and there are a bunch more of us in the state too. Always up for a local shindig.

    I'm in. The MI Prop Parties are always a great time. Lots of props and good people. :)

    I think we need to nail down a date and a location... then we might get more people to sign up.

    Has anyone contacted Outlander (Jeff S.)? He hosted the party last year, and I think it was a great location. :thumbsup

    My parents are in Flushing... so it would be a good excuse to drive up there and also get to go to a prop party. My dad would get a kick out of some props... especially if some Rocketeer stuff is about. ;)

    I agree. That was a nice amount of space. Not too big, not too small. :)

    Jeff was a great host last year. There was also some great raffles too. This prop party doubles every year. The space last year was perfect, could fit in a lot more people also.

    I've had a blast at the three Michigan Prop partys I had the good fortune to visit. I even managed to bring along a buddy with me to last year's, and setting did indeed seem to have ample space.

    If you are looking to steer clear of the Transworld Show, don't plan it for the second weekend in March.

    I'd love to help out with anything if I can. :D

    I forwarded this thread to Jeff yesterday. He's been working a lot lately, so give him a bit to respond. I'm sure he'll let us know if the space is available again, and if he even wants to be part of it's organization. Just remember folks, that place wasn't free, Jeff picked up a good percentage of it out of his own pocket, so I hope that we can all agree to pitch in a few bucks if this goes to the same venue.

    yep - last years space was great. instead of using those round tables and add the square ones and set up some rows it will be great.

    I spoke to Outlander yesterday. He is in the process of seeing when the hall is available. He was looking into the late April timeframe.

    As far as how much this is going to be, I personally was thinking if everyone pitched in $5.00 at the door, that would probably be sufficient, for the hall rental. It wont cover all of it, but it would help the hosts out of pocket expenses.

    And I'm sure we could do another pizza donation thing like last year too. That went over well I thought. As well as the bring a soda/snack table went over as well.

    Throw the idea's aout there folks, this is a group effort. All of the * that you are going to hear afterwards, is because you didn't speak up now. And remember, you can't please everyone.

    Late April would be awesome. Perhaps Saturday the 22nd or 29th? Would be funny if it was the 22nd... that's my girlfriend's birthday. But she wants to come to this as well as my dad.

    Should be a good time.

    I should be able to make it again as well. I will bring Michael if the R-2s are coming again, he would love to see those.

    I brought Harry Potter items last year, Think I am going to do the Disney stuff this year with the statues. Life size Stitch, the nautilus, Incredible statue and some DC stuff as well along with some Smallville stuff, Indy gear and latest MR stuff. Definately the MR FX gear if Mike comes, we can do saber battles during the breaks. I can bring the portable DVD player again to hook up to the one TV again, let me know if there are any titles you would want me to bring.
    I will pop a few nick nack items up for sale also, cover my cost and help Mr. Simon also.

    Alright folks, I just got off the phone with Outlander, the Hall that we had last year is available again. He is reserving it for April 29th, 2006. I don't have any more details than that, so let the discussion commence.

    Everyone,

    Jeff has posted the details in this thread:

    http://www.rpf.invisionzone.com/index.php?...6&t=104273&st=0

    Let's use that thread for updates so that Jeff, our host, can make changes if he needs to. I'm going to lock this thread since we don't need two running threads about the party.

    Hope to see everyone there..
