The Force is strong in St Catharines!

The weatherman was predicting a lousy day on Saturday, so I searched the net for some ideas to occupy my time.
Surfing around, I found the Force United Niagara web site. They are a group of members who do charity events dressed in Star Wars uniforms.
Now, I've seen a few of these events, via the 501st Legion, Canadian Garrison, but these guys seem to really go all out. At previous events, they had great turnouts of members.
So I saw that they would be at a St Catharines Toys R Us, so I decided to head down to check them out.

It was a great decision, as their were a couple of jedi's,


bounty hunters

a rebel pilot

bike trooper

an empirial gunner

And Lord Vader himself!

They were very cooperative, and seemed to enjoy posing with everyone.

We even had them come out of the store and pose the entire group!

I hope to catch some of their other events, as again, they have a great turnout, and everyone seems to enjoy seeing them!
