    As Gator said, "Skating Stormtrooper"!

    We'll have Darth Vader do a ceremonial puck drop.

    A clonetrooper will play the national anthem on guitar.

    We'll have a photo booth for charity and the troops mingle with the fans for photo ops.

    We interact with the team Mascots.

    Usually the team promotion person has tons of great ideas.

    How would one go about arranging a SW hockey night for their local team?

    Weren't you petrified that you'd slip? I'd be mighty afraid of this because my costume would be in big trouble should that happen. I know most of your armor is metal and won't shatter ... maybe that made a difference.

    After a period of hockey the ice is pretty torn up, so you can walk on it without worring too much about slipping.

    Here I am from Saturday.



    Skating in armor is very cool. I loved it.

    In two weeks I'm doing it again, but it will be as Boba. 8)
