May the 4th Festival Portmagee - Saturday May 2nd Monday May 4th

    

Event details

We're now going into our 3rd year with the May the 4th Festival in Portmagee.  There is a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes for this festival and I reckon its going to be the best one yet.  The festival will run from Saturday May 2nd at midday until around 5pm on Monday the 4th.  I have a cap for the festival at the moment.  It may increase but at the moment Im looking for 12 troopers.  Your accommodation and travel expenses will be covered as usual.  Accommodation will be for the Saturday and Sunday night, checking out on Monday.  At a later stage I'll be going through various different options with regard to travel to Kerry  but for the moment I want to focus on the sign ups.  Its on a first come first serve basis.  Once I hit 12 troopers I will then take reserve names.  Its really important that if you say you are going you will actually attend.  With regard to crew, we'll be crewing this ourselves.  You must have a costume to take a place.

The troop is open to 501st and RL.  At a later stage we may open this up to GA, depending how sign ups go and how we are doing for accommodation.  The most important thing for Portmagee is a really good variety of costumes so if there is an opportunity to bring a second costume down that would be great.

When signing up please advise what costume you are bringing

OK folks, we are going to try this again.  With so many people looking to go to Portmagee along with confusion about the RSVP button.  Some people used the RSVP button to sign up and some just signed up on the thread.  The thing about the RSVP button is that you cant sign up for two people. 

I've decided to go from scratch.  I will take all the names of all the people who would like to go to Portmagee and we are going to put them into a Random Name Selector.  I will operate the random name selector and I will video it while Im doing it so everyone can see that its a fair selection process.  With regard to couples who troop together, I will put the lead name in.  If you're selected then your partner goes with you automatically.  Because you will be sharing a double room together I will be able to save a little on the budget and hopefully I can increase the numbers a bit more.

I am fairly confident that we can move the number from 12 upwards.  You need to bear with me and let me get on with the job.  I'll work something out.

So, tomorrow night at 830 again, I'll join you all on the club chat page on FB.  I will start the selection process and I'll video each name picked so you can see its all fair and square.  For those that dont make the list, I will put you on the reserve list.

Thanks Dan.  I'll keep in touch with you over the week.  Once I get this selection thing out of the way I can move forward with trying to secure more places

Dave I may go to this or malin head at this point I dont mind ..

Predicament is 2 vaders at portmagee is pointless ? Or is it ?... so after reading malin head requires iconic characters but has the same problem with rsvp there too... I'm just like whatever 🤷🏾‍♂️ 

As a back up I'm currently working on the jawa for rebel legion this means so for future reference I have a generic costume that fits in anywhere like the storm trooper 

😂

Good luck sorting it out I feel your pressure ha ha

As man, I was sick and missed when this first dropped!  Can I still get on the reserve list?  Or can I still go if I pay my own way?
