**I am sharing this invite with the Corellian Base. We have a banner for a table that features MSG and CB graphics already. I'd like us to run a photo op booth and have donations go toward Dreams & Wishes.
We are being offered a total of 50 passes for costumed folks, and 12 for handlers/photographers. I'm going to split each with the RL group. so that's 25 spots and 6 handlers, respectively, for each group.
NOTE: Handler passes are for HANDLERS. Not your kids, not your girlfriend's brother, not for anyone who is gonna come to the con for free and ditch us. These folks are giving us a lot, let's not take advantage of that. If you have friends/kids who want to come, I suggest picking them up a ticket on Groupon. It's like 25 bucks a day there, and kids 10 and under get in free anyway.
