At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago earlier this year, Cathy Kendrick took it upon herself to organise the Star Wars with Friends word game with money raised benefiting Rancho Obi-Wan. It was a great way to engage with other like-minded Star Wars fans and to help the world’s largest and greatest Star Wars museum. The good news for those that played this year, and for those that missed out, is that the game will be back for Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim in 2020, and you can sign up now. Over to Cathy with all the details.
Sure, Celebration 2020 isn’t until August, but now is the time to sign up for Star Wars With Friends. Why?
Well, we are friends, right? And you like Rancho Obi-Wan, right? And it is SUPER cheap. Heck, it is just a couple dollars more than what I spend at Starbucks each day. It’s less than 1% of the cost of a new iPhone. It’s a burger and fries at McDonalds cheap, but way healthier.
I’d really like to get to 100 people signed up by the end of the month. If you will be attending Celebration, or think you might be, then sign up. Please.
If you end up unable to make it, then we’ll change you over to the Not Attending Raffle.
If you know you won’t be attending already, please consider donating in for the Not Attending raffle. It is a very, very low cost. Most of you won’t miss the $10. You’ll be helping ROW and showing support for this type of event in the fan world. It’s just a cool thing to do.
So, on this particular Sunday, please go over to www.ranchoobiwan.org/store and go to the Star Wars With Friends item and get in with either a starter pack or not attending raffle. If you also decide to add bonus bags to your order, well, that is super terrific and I adore you, but completely optional.
But Cathy, I know I will be going, but I have no time to play! I am stuck at a booth the whole show, or busy doing important stuff like volunteering! Yup. Okay. Just asking you to contribute $10. You’ll get to have the starter pack with cute button and letter tiles. You can play or not play. Give them away if you want. OR, you can actually play from your booth. We’ll tell players where the stuck people are. We will post in the FB group. Heck, if your fan group has enough players who tend to be stuck, I’ll do a tile pin giveaway from your booth, or host a meet up for tile swaps there. I’m just saying, no excuses! If everyone on this list signed up to play, or for the Not Attending Raffle, well that would just make my day. Please and thanks.
What are you waiting for? Head to Rancho Obi-Wan now to sign up!
