Title: Lightsaber Flash Mob in Salt Lake
Post by: MasterSketch on May 20, 2009, 09:25:59 AM
Date:   Friday, June 19, 2009
Time:   9:30pm - 11:00pm
Location:   Liberty Park near Downtown Salt Lake
Street:   1300 South 700 East
City/Town:   Salt Lake City, UT
Email:   SketchFilms@aol.com

If you own a light up lightsaber or know someone that can lend you one, come to Liberty park in Salt Lake on June 19th and set your timers and cell phones for 9:30 P.M.!
On the dot, everyone will turn their lightsabers on and initiate a massive mock battle!!!
This event is being hosted on facebook; so if you have a facebook account, go to http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=61683669549&ref=ts and add yourself to the confirmation list. If you don't have facebook, read on!...

Bring all of your buddies or bring a date! It's the perfect event for a Friday night! Anyone and everyone that can bring a lightsaber is invited; so even if you can't come, pass this on to everyone you know!!!!
When you get to the park, don't tell anyone what's about to happen; don't even talk about it to each other- just show up walk around casually and when 9:30 hits, make it as random as possible!!!
The general group of us will be initiating the event near the hillside of the pond on the South East corner of the park (1300 S. 700 E.)

(NOTE: Do NOT Attack Innocent Bystanders and do NOT swing your blade like you're going to kill someone. You can fake a battle without swinging your blade as hard as you can and still have fun. If you can't abide by these rules you are responsible for any of your own actions.)


Don't know what a flashmob is? Check these videos out at http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=&search_query=flash+mobs&aq=f


If you don't own a lightsaber yet, the best sparring models you can bring are from http://www.ultrasabers.com/ who offer a wide variety of incredibly durable and fine-quality lightsabers running as cheap as 35.00!!! They even offer a double edged lightsaber for 79.00 which is one third the price you can find anywhere else. Check it out!

If you're short on money, just run to your local Walmart and grab yourself one of the fold-out lightsabers or just ask around!

If you can't afford a lightsaber, ask around to see if anyone has spares! You won't want to miss out on this spontaneous event!!!

Aww I live nowhere near the area :'(

Be sure to film it! I would like to plan something like that in my University...as it is, my brother is planning a zombie walk so if that actually happens, then i have no doubt the administrators would allow us to do that ;D

Thanks! Yeah, I wish anyone that wanted to come could make it. If you have any friends near the area that would be interested, for sure let them know!
I've heard rumor of up to several different groups that plan to come to the spot and film it; we'll for sure put it up on youtube as soon as it's edited together.
