    Great news, Jeff.

    Thanks for taking this on again this year. If you need anything at all, please let me know. :)

    Lonnie

    PS - I'll stick this at the top of the forum for a week to get some exposure, and then again a couple of weeks before the party.

    Thanks for the offers of assistance, guys.

    April was the most requested month in the surveys we took last year, our choices were the first or the twenty ninth. I decided the later date would give us a crack at better weather and give people more time for preparations.

    Best Regards,

    I'd love to help out with setting up or anything you need.

    Are you going to be doing a prize drawing again? I have a box of toys and such to donate if you are.

    I just got off the phone with Jeff (Outlander), he put the down payment on the hall, so it looks like the party is a definite go.

    Hey, Jediteddy. Thanks again for helping out last year. A lot of people just packed up at the end of the night and ran out the door. You and one other lady were the only ones who stuck around to help clean up. It was classy and very much appreciated.

    JT: Yes, I'd love to do a raffle again, it seemed to be very popular. I thought that it was great that all those kids got an action figure as a souvenir.

    Vader's Evil Twin, I'm sorry you couldn't make it last year. I look forward to seeing you this year if it works out for you. The Mich crowd is a great bunch of people and I think everybody had a great time. I'm hoping Tom Sullivan and his brother will bless us with their presence again. One of the Dullam and Causey geniuses is local. Hopefully one of them will drop even if it is just to visit for a short bit. I know some of the kids will be praying that the R2 Builder's will show.

    I can help with set up/tear down or be the Vannah White of the auction. :p Seriously though, any help you need let me know. Much thanks goes to you guys for arranging everything.

    I know Mr. Fett contacted Tom Sullivan who came to the first prop party. You might want to drop him a line and see if he can get ahold of Tom for ya again.

    And when the time comes, I'd like one of the round tables to display my ever growing collection.

    Anybody who would like to reserve a table, please send an eMail to outlander@comcast.net with the following information:

    Board Name
    Real Name
    Table Requirements

    As stated earlier, the majority of the tables are round ones. There are a few rectangular tables, but since I don't know how many exist and out of consideration for arrival times and possible cancellations, it is not possible to make a reservation list for the rectangles.

    Rectangular tables will be issued in the order they are requested by people arriving at the party until the tables are gone. If you have some display that will absolutely NOT work with any other arrangment except a rectangular table, eMail me with details and I'll see what I can work out for you.

    Comments, discussion and debate about this subject is welcome, but it's the only way I see it working in a manner that is fair.

    Best Regards,

    JAS

    Appliedmetal, let me field this one for you. Anyone, and everyone is invited, gawkers, venders, and just folks who want to show off their stuff. You are not required to bring a thing, or you can bring a truck load. It matters not. This is just a big get together with like minded folks, to get away for the afternoon, shoot the breeze, and see some neat stuff. So come along .

    Your female predator costume, in the flesh, as opposed to being on the table all day, was great.

    Ya know, although I'm not much of a poster around these parts, I'm a regular over at Proptopia, and one of the members recommended I check this whole shindig out (in Lansing currently).

    Anyone that can shoot some info my way (ie, what it's all about, details, etc.) would be uber-appreciated. ;)

    I'm happy to bring a decent selection of props, if folks are down....

    Actually, the Michigan party had as much or more than the east coast party did, which says alot for the gathering there. A little more horror genre props as well sci-fi. My son is hoping the R2 builders will be showing up again. Well worth going to if you can.

    Well, we're five hours from Chicago, four from Toronto, and an hour from the Ohio border. So we draw from a lot of different areas. I have hope that an old buddy will drop by from Kansas, so that'll snag the distance record I think. Of course Lem came from an awfully long way last year....

    Fantatic... :D There is no project ongoing at the RPF right now that I would rather see show up at the party than that one. Bring a sign-up sheet, I cannot believe that a ton of people will not be begging to jump on board.

    In other news, I eMailed Tom Sullivan last night and invited him and his brother. For those of you who do not know, Tom is the FX cat who did the first two Evil Dead flicks with Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. Hopefully he and his brother are free to join us again. Seeing Tom every year is a great experience.

    Also, one of the most popular things from last years party seems to be the raffle that we did. If anybody has something that they'd like to donate to the drawing, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I've just been in contact with Mr. Thomas Sullivan and he regretfully informs me that he will be unable to attend this year's party. He sends his best to everyone.

    I'm looking forward to seeing all kinds of cool stuff this year.

    The last couple of years, we've had some great turn out and displays, but we've also had a number of regular members show up just to look. And thats fine for a year or two... but now, it's time to ante up. :D I'm hoping that a few regulars to the party who've traditionaly shown up to just to gander (and you know who you are.) will bring some stuff this year. :)

    It'll also be cool to see some new members like Clay, gjustis, etc there. :thumbsup

    Hey there--Appliedmetal here aka Clay Williams
    Just wondering what the cost is for a small table for the party.
    Please get ahold of me so I can decide if I want to get one or not. We should have the Constantine Knucks done by then and I might be bringing them as well as son\me other items.

    Let me know..
    Thanks

    Clay, in the above post you were asking how much it is to get a table. It's free.. You can get as many tables as you want, you just show up and put your stuff on any table you want. The more props you have the more tables you can have. I don't have very many props, so last year I only had one round table. But if you have alot of props load up the car and show up early and grab all the tables you want. Hope to see you there. :thumbsup

    As Hicks mentioned, there should be plenty of tables, we had a lot left last year. The only set back is that the majority of them are round "wedding" style tables, there are only a few rectangular tables available and they get snapped up very
    quickly, early in the day, on a first come first served basis.

    If you absolutely need a rectangular or square table, you are more than welcome to bring one or more of your own.

    There is no charge for using the tables, showing your stuff and seeing other people's props is what the MiPP is all about. Unlike this year, we will be selling tickets at the door for a minimal - probably $5.00 - charge to help defray some of the costs. Admission for children is free. Tickets will also include entry to the MiPP raffle, which was very popular last year. Hopefully we will have a lot of people donate items again this year.

    For those of you who were not there last year, or need a reminder, or are traveling from far away via Mapquest, the hall address info is as follows:

    UAW LOCAL 1264
    7450 Fifteen Mile Road
    Sterling Heights, MI 48312
