Signup by 10 May!
UPDATE! See next post!

This event is being copied from the Garrison Tyranus forums, but was also sent to the rebel legion through Terapin base because of the Pentagon's address being DC vice Arlington.
------------------------------
Event Name: Pentagon Director Farewell
Venue: Pentagon

Venue address:
1000 Defense Way
Washington, District of Columbia
20301

Event Start: may 15 - 10am
Event End: may 15 - 1 pm
Event Website:
Expected number of attendees: 40
Requested number of characters: 30
Secure changing/staging area: Yes

Comments: The Director of a currently undisclosed team within the Pentagon is handing over the reigns to his successor. The team has prided itself, and built itself around being the Rebels working within the system. We are planning a large send off, and it would only be fitting to have a cavalcade of Imperials, Rebels, and other Star Wars Characters present.

There will be some security processing/admittance logistics that we will need to start working promptly on. And more than likely blasters and the sort will not be allowed (TBD, but most likely).

We will provide a secure facility for changing, as we have two super secure internal offices.

The Garrisons presence would be most appreciated!

The initial request was pretty criptic, so i offered to meet with the POCs and help plan it, since i also work in the pentagon and could see this going south quickly.
I am cross posting this.
The requesters have asked for ~30 max costumers with a wide variety.
They specifically asked if at all possible a minimum of:
1 Leia (to present a "battle of yavin" medal)
1 R2D2 (his favorite character, but any astromech would be great)
1 TK (i'm planning to go as a TK)
1 Chewie
The rest a mix of any star wars characters.
We will have a large office space a couple of floors above the event room to store our bins and get dressed. We will then be escorted downstairs (there is an elevator) to the event room. The event itself will take place in and around a large conference room. They have asked us to line the room during the ceremony and then remain after the ceremony for pictures with the guests.
Formup: Arrive as early as 8am, but i need to know when you're coming so i can have someone there to escort you.
Event Ceremony Start: 1045
Reception : 11-1230
SECURITY: Because Pentagon security is like airport security on steroids, we are coordinating to have bins dropped off the day prior to the event and stored in a secure room over night. If unable to bring them in the day prior to, please plan to be there VERY early on the day of. Pentagon Force Protection will email you a request for information, that you will fill out online. There should not be an issue getting anyone inside as long as you are a US citizen.
WEAPONS: Still working this out with security
PARKING: If you would like to request a temporary parking pass for the day, please annotate that on the signup sheet. This is not gauranteed, and frankly pentagon visitor parking is horrible and there are much better spots at the Pentagon City Mall.
Signups will end on 10 May:

I am going to ask my boss for the day off for this. I used to work in the Pentagon a few days a week when DISA was still in Falls Church. I'd like one last trip around the hallways!

I can probably do this. I'll check with work to make sure. I can bring my senatorial Leia, but if someone else would rather have that honor (or has the ceremonial costume), I'd happily give that up and come as something else.

My husband, an active duty naval officer, is currently trying to decide if he wants to cross streams of work and play and join this too.

Update:

The event has been fully approved with Pentagon Security.

**Setup**:
Load in will be on 14 May. (the day before). Pentagon security has approved us bringing our bins into the pentagon in vehicles. Security will meet us in the parking lot for a intentory check, then escort each vehicle through security, We will then unload the vehicles in the pentagon, and drive back out. The gear will then be taken up to Endor (the office we are using overnight and for changing). Yes, its name is actually Endor, wait until you see this room.
i added a new column to the spreadsheet for "day you can drop off bin". If you can get the bin to me (either meet me somewhere or bring to my house) prior to tuesday, i can probably haul them in my van. otherwise, just let me know what time tuesday/wednesday i need to plan to meet you.

Weapons: All weapons will be checked ahead of time to ensure they are safe, but weapons are allowed.

Day of: The goal is to be through security by 9am and into Endor. Please get there by 0830 if at all possible.
Schedule:
1015 - Star Wars Characters Escorted from Endor to the ceremony room
1030-1045: Dignitaries escorted to the ceremony room
1045-1130: Formal ceremony begins with formal remarks, an award, and remarks.
1130-1200: Informal reception immediately afterwards in the same conference room.
1200: Escorted back to Endor

Still working on how we will get all of the equipment out of building. Getting out is much easier than getting in, though. There may be a chance for some pictures afterwards with other organizations (including my office).
