Local Coverage
« on: October 04, 2004, 09:28:36 AM »
To All Troopers,

If you happen attend a local event, whether it be a flea market, toy show, or even a convention, the Staff at Sandtroopers.com would be very excited if you would be so kind to take pictures and do a write-up of the event.  We would then build a separate page with the pictures and your write-up, so in an essence you would be a local reporter for us.

As most of you know, Spice and I live only about an hour away from each other, and we have attend the local Kane County Toy Show on a couple of occasions.  While we were there we took pictures and did a write-up of the event.  So, if any of you could do something like this for us we would greatly appreciate it.

Some examples of others work include the following...

Speaking of Chris, we'll have to do this again sometime, everything except ride through the south side when we leave Chicago!  ;) It was Good Times, but more like the TV show.  ;)
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

No problem. I'll get pics as much as I can. Some LOTR and some SW mainly plus a little bit of everything else.

Look for Snipe and RJP who should be clad in ST.com T-Shirts, they should be covering the show for us as well!

Here's a link to some various comic book conventions in various areas.  Usually, these things also have plenty of toys to go around, so I am posting the link so that yo all may check it out and see what is in your area.  If there is one near you, please try and make a point to check it out and be sure to take plenty of pictures.  I am going to a small show in South Bend, IN on Saturday.  If there is anyone around that area at all, please come on out and find me!  I'll be wearing my official Sandtroopers.com T-Shirt, so look for me and we'll cruise the show together!  Let's get our troops out there and take these things over!
