The latest press release from the DCSWCC fills us in on their CV activities...DCSWCC Has Big Plans for Celebration 5
The Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) is pleased to announce exciting activities and exclusives for Star Wars Celebration 5. All activities are free with your paid admission to Celebration 5 - just stop by the DCSWCC booth #1421 in the main Exhibit Hall.
Trench Run Mini Golf will challenge participants to send a golf ball "proton torpedo" into the thermal exhaust port, dodging TIE fighters along the way. Sinking a hole-in-one will earn you a prize such as one of five unique pieces of the officially licensed Celebration 5 Collector's Club Patch (four other clubs will be distributing other pieces elsewhere at Celebration).
DCSWCC's unique Wampa Cave Photo Prop puts the participant's face in place of Luke's - hanging upside down after being captured by the wampa! To create the effect, you can try taking the picture with your camera upside-down, or (much more easily) just flip the photo after you get home.
Free give-aways for the weekend include: four different pin-back badges featuring artwork used in our four charity cloisonne lapel pins (one designper day). A set of four large stickers in the style of General Mills' 1978 breakfast cereal promotion, but with imagery from The Empire Strikes Back in honor of its 30th anniversary (one design per day). Stop by our booth to see what other surprises we have in store!
In addition, DCSWCC will be selling their 2008 and 2010 bi-annual charity lapel pins. These pins are high-quality cloisonne pins, officially licensedby Lucasfilm. The 2008 pin features animated Boba Fett, while the 2010 pin features Luke on his tauntaun. All proceeds benefit the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Program of Fairfax County VA, and the Believe in Tomorrow foundation in Baltimore MD.
DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active collecting clubs in America, with over 60 active members. The club meets monthly and holds special events throughout the year such as socials, picnics, and "Roadshow" appraisal events. For more information, visit the club website at http://www.dcswcc.org
