Born in Fridley, raised in Minneapolis from 1-5 yrs. Got tired of hearing the word(s) "Uff-da" so I moved to California. Not wanting a 5 year old to be on his own in CA, my family followed suit.
Wow, I did the same, but the exact opposite lol. I was born and raised in San Diego, and then we moved to Minnetonka when I was 5.

I am in Fargo, ND now, but I still consider myself a Minnesotan. Do we have cool patches?

sry for the copy and paste. the event is hope for kids

We have once again been invited to the HopeKids Festival which is sponsored by the U of MN Athletic Dept at Bierman Field on campus.

It is once again on the second Sunday of September, which is September 9th and is held from 12pm-3pm. They have also invited the Star Wars costumers to attend.

We have a secure dressing room in the athletic offices adjacent to the field, and the kids always appreciate our appearance. We will do the usual meet-and-greet as the families arrive as well as walk around the area to interact with the kids.

Please post here is you plan to attend this worthy event!

Hi guys I am from England originally but now live in Kenyon, which is a small town near Rochester. I posted in the "Introduction" thread then found this post and thought I would copy it over here too. Glad to see there are some of us in Minnesota :)



Hi I thought I should introduce myself as I am new to GB cos play, but I am a huge Sci-Fi and Star Wars fan and have always loved Ghostbuster from the first time I saw it in the theater as a kid. I just picked up a pack that was build by slimer7, I hear he makes excellent gear. I should have the pack this week and am very excited to get it. The rest of the uniform will have to wait till after Christmas as the packs aren't cheap.
I thought while I was here I would share with you some of my projects, props and costumes. I am currently a member of the Rebel Legion a charity costume group and am currently working on a costume to join the 501st.

My wand was missing the Orange hat light at the barrel, and I have been looking for something that would work and stumbled on this orange rubber cap thing here at work. I drilled out some excess rubber so the LED would shine through and this is what I ended up with. I think it turned out pretty good.

Yet another Minnesotan checking in. Hey, how's it going?

I've lived in southern MN my entire life, until my wife and I moved up to the suburbs a couple months ago. I went to college in Mankato (where I still work). I posted in the introduction forum too, but here's a little of the same info again: I have a pack, goggles, and a suit, but only ever used them for Halloween and haven't been to any events.

Hey Krenzy, I'm doing good! I'm in Mankato nearly every weekday for work! Are you in a group? I think you mentioned it in an earlier post in this thread but I didn't look at the date on the posts at all. My "group" consists of my brother and I, and to a much, much lesser extent my wife.
