Hi everyone, just putting the finishing touches on my costume so I can hopefully join you all soon. I'm based in small town in Northern NSW. Narrabri is about half way between Sydney and Brisbane, and about six hours drive inland from the coast on the Newell Highway.

It's pretty tough out here at the moment with the drought, so our town is putting on a festival over the October long weekend. There'll be a range of events, and I'll be coordinating the Star Wars section of the festival. We've got the Sons of ObiWan coming to do Theatre Combat classes, and we're having a Cosplay Competition too, the winners will be presented with the Medal of Yavin. And of course I've submitted a formal request for a visit from Tython Base, the 501'st andthe Mandalorian Mercs. Would be great to meet some of you if you are able to attend, but of course I realize it's a long way for most of you, so if you can't make it, I understand.

I run a newly created Star Wars Facebook page in our area called Knights of the New Republic. Among other things on the page is a link to my YouTube channel where I do Jedi themed meditations. I'm a Certified Meditation teacher. And we've already done a small fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation, as my youngest daughter was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy.

As mentioned, my costume is almost complete. I'm just waiting on the pouches for my belt, along with the a clip to hold my saber on the belt. My cloak is being made, and should be ready soon. I have all the other elements, except for the all important lightsabers. Luke at Saberdyne Industries/Sons of ObiWan has the hilts already, but is waiting on a new shipment of blades.

Anyway, I've rambled on enough. Hope to officially join your ranks soon.

Some photos of my costume in progress, the pouches are only temporary items. I was so happy with how the tunic came out, I'm having a light brown one made now too. (apologies for the poor photos)

Hi Rod,

Great to see your post here. Your costume is looking pretty good. Hope your pouches arrive soon Smile.

Have posted up your event info in our Mission Planning section. Hoping some of our members are free/interested in making the trip out to your city.

If you have any accommodation suggestions for people please let us know too.

Cheers, Sair

Thanks so much. Would love to meet some of you in person at our event, but if not, hopefully in the not too distant future.

I can more than likely arrange accommodation at very affordable rates once I have an idea of how many might be attending.

Well I've just submitted my all black costume for approval. My dodgy shoulder is playing up at the moment, so I'm holding it in a funny position which affects how the tabard sits on that side, I hope it's alright.

Fingers crossed it passes without too much trouble.

Well looks like I'm approved, would be honoured to join your ranks in Tython Base.
