Tournament of Roses Parade
Star Wars Spectacular
December 27th 2006 - January 1st 2007
In appreciation for the charitable efforts of the 501st Legion worldwide, Writer/Director George Lucas summoned 200 Stormtroopers plus additional personnel to Southern California. We assembled at the Sheraton Universal and owned the place for a week. Additionally, 170+ members of the Grambling State Marching Band accompanied us on the practice field and kept cadence for us while marching in the Tournament of Roses Parade, 2007. What a party!
There are sooooo many people to thank for such a great event...
- Thanks to Uncle George for his kind recognition of the 501st's efforts worldwide
- Thanks to ALL Lucasfilm staff who worked with us night and day to make this event seamless
- Thanks to the support staff who worked with LFL and us to make the event seamless... their efforts are appreciated
- Thanks to the many members of the 501st who have given me memories to last a lifetime - you guys and gals ROCK!
- Thanks to the Sheraton Universal folks who put up with us for the week. The bartenders ROCKed.
Bob Euebanks - I owe him an apology. He pissed a few of us off the morning of the Parade. He was cool and said his comment was a light-hearted razz. Thanks, Bob. Sorry it took me a few years to say you don't suck. He's a gentleman indeed.
