We will have the swords in two piles: First Name A – K, First Name L – Z. If you used an organization when signing up for PayPal, it will be under that name. Please show up AT LEAST half an hour before the battle begins. If you do not claim your sword by 9:15, it may be given away. NO REFUNDS will be offered for no-shows.
We need your help! Please show up at the SE part of the park (Teen Plaza) at 7:30 if you would like to assist. You will be looking for a white cargo van. Text 516-312-0693 if you cannot locate it.
Many thanks to Stack Exchange for donating Jedi robes for this event.
Swords are sold out!
Follow these simple rules to make sure everybody is safe:
+ Swing lightly, as there will be many people swinging at once
+ Don’t hit people in the face. This should be pretty obvious.
+ Goggles are stylish and a good way to protect your eyes!
+ When in doubt, tap out.
If you would like to help distribute swords to people who reserved them send us an e-mail at love (at) newmindspace.com :)
