I work with the University Inn and Conference Center at Utah State University, and every year a colleague of mine and I are responsible for producing and running our department's annual Halloween Party. It's quite a production and we have a different theme each year. This year we've decided on Star Wars. To add to the spectacle, we are looking for a Darth Vader and at least two Imperial Storm Troopers who would be able to come and meet with our staff and their kids, and perhaps put on a short show.
The party will be held on Monday October 31st, 2016 from 12:30pm till 2:00pm at the Eccles Conference Center on the USU Campus. We have three rooms reserved at the University Inn for three Garrison guests who are able to come and help us out in the capacities I just mentioned. The rooms will be reserved for a Darth Vader and the first two Storm Troopers to commit to this party. THE ROOMS ARE FREE AND YOU WILL BE FED!
I know this is quite a ways out, but history has proven to us that the time between now and Halloween goes by quickly with all the events we hold during the year in our department, and I like to make plans before I become too busy and involved with my responsibilities.
Please let me know if any of you can make it, or if you have any questions.
You are more than welcome to bring your spouse and kids with you. I only have three rooms reserved at our inn right now, and one is being held specifically for whomever will come as Darth Vader. The first two Storm Troopers (Bike Troopers, Snow Troopers, AT-AT Pilots, etc.) to commit will each get one of the two rooms. I know it's still a ways out, and some might not be able to anticipate what their personal schedules/lives will be, so I won't expect a full commitment until at least mid-August.
Thanks to everyone who have shown interest so far!
My co-worker and I who are in charge of the annual Halloween party in our department just revealed the theme to our fellow staff members this past Tuesday. As we all know, our excitement for the next installment of the Star Wars Saga is increased through the anticipated movie trailers we see on television and at the movies. The reveal we did the other day came in the form of a trailer. The background story of this trailer is when my co-worker and I went to my storage unit to figure out what our next theme will be. We go through a chest and show items from past Halloween parties. Then I find something, and my co-worker and I concur on the new theme, and the montage begins. Here is the trailer for your entertainment: https://youtu.be/tGFI1fFP_AU
I have spoken with Alpine Garrison C.O., SciFiChick, and she has given me the “go ahead” to continue to ask for costumed/uniformed Garrison members to attend a Halloween party for the staff of the University Inn and Conference Center at Utah State University in Logan on Halloween Day. Your presence will help set the atmosphere and add those special elements of realism and enthusiasm for our beloved Star Wars!
I am looking for anyone who is able to come on Halloween Day (Monday Oct. 31st) from 12:00pm till 2:00pm dressed in full regalia. I am especially looking for someone who can attend as Darth Vader. Stormtroopers are also a priority. I would like to have enough for a security detail for Darth Vader’s entrance to the party, but the more the merrier!! Stormtroopers of various configurations and generations (Episodes 1-8) are welcome! Imperial Officers are also encouraged to attend!
Since part of our department is a hotel, I was able to reserve accommodations, free of charge, for THREE Alpine Garrison members (and their families if they wish to bring them) at the University Inn as a convenience for those who would rather travel to Logan on Sunday and have a comfortable place to change into costume/uniform the next day. These accommodations have been reserved for the first person to commit to dressing as Darth Vader and the first two Storm Troopers to commit. These rooms are good for the afternoon of Sunday Oct. 30th till mid-afternoon Monday Oct. 31st. We have rooms available as changing rooms at the conference center for those traveling up on Monday.
Here are the basic details: DATE: MONDAY OCTOBER 31st TIME: 12:00PM - 2:00PM LOCATION: ECCLES CONFERENCE CENTER - UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
The party will have a short and simple script to introduce Darth Vader (who will be accompanied by a Stormtrooper Security Detail) as the overseer of the party. I will be coordinating that script via e-mail and other communications over the next two months. I would like to do a quick rehearsal about an hour before the party. Again, it’ll be quite simple.
We will have places for photo opportunities with Vader and his troopers. There will be children of all ages, plus the staff, who would love to have their pictures taken with you!
Food and other refreshments will be provided by our staff.
We will also be holding a charity drive for two charities: Veterans with PTSD and the Cache Humane Society.
That’s it! I think this going to be a BLAST! With your help, it’ll be even better!!
If you have any questions, or would like to commit to coming, just reply to this post or send me an e-mail at email@example.com and we'll talk!
