Operation: Heist!

I personally have been wanting to pull a heist forever as I am sure most of you have as well. In the very least Oceans 11 (or its sequels) must have made you curious.

Mission date
Saturday, June, 4th

We are going to pull a heist on the Zilker Zephyr. There will be a few people planted on the train (preferable dressed in period clothing if available) with canvas "money" bags. The rest of us will wait for the train and then proceed to rob it and kidnap a few of those on board. Then ride off into the sunset.

Approximate times
Time will be a closely guarded secret so people are not prepared. It will be early afternoonish, to give an idea.

Essential details
Items for participation (bandit):
Black or dark cowboyish hat
Black bandanna
Small water gun (six shooter look alike and holsters encouraged as long as APD or anyone else can't mistake it for a real gun - We don't want to get in trouble!)
Stick horse (This one is the most important, as it was the catalyst for the idea, there are a few shops in town to buy one or they are fairly easy to make with a broomstick and long sock)

Items for participation (train plants):
Period clothing of some nature
Parasol perhaps? Just have fun with it

Canvas bags will be provided.

Unfortunately this flash mob can really only support about 20-25 people max, so it is on a first come first serve basis. Unlike other flash mobs though I would ask that if you sign up, please commit.

Thanks guys, this is going to be awesome!
