As some of you may know, Squad 7 of the Florida Garrison - 501st will be participating in the annual Wolfson Children's Hospital "Red Wagon Parade" this coming September. The squad raised the $1,000 entry fee (with all proceeds going to Wolfson Children's Hospital) and has finished their "red wagon" landspeeder for the parade. By participating in that parade, we are automatically entered into the Winn Dixie Hometown Gator Bowl Parade, which will be televised in nine states in the southeast.
I'd like to get an interest list going for anyone who would like to participate in the parade.

The parade will be held in downtown Jacksonville, New Years Eve Day at 3 p.m.

I'd really like to see the Rebel Legion join in and pull this off in full first weekend - Star Wars Weekends style. (sorry though, no free Disney passes or action figures will be handed out. LOL!!!) I feel like this will be a great opportunity for the Rebel Legion as a whole, seeing as how it's such a high profile event. I mean it's no Rose Bowl parade with George Lucas, but hell, like I said, it is televised in nine states so it would be a great opportunity to get our name out there.
This event invitation is extend to all Rebel Legion members - no matter what base.

Here's a little bit of info on the parade..... http://www.istc.org/sisp/index.htm?fx=e ... t_id=97278

Any way, post here if you think you may be interested.

More info to come as it is made available about hotels, parking, the parade route and New Years Eve party.


On the 501st side of things, there are troopers making this event from all over the state as well as a few that are going to come in from other states as well.

So far we (The Rebel Legion) have 3 RFT, 1 A-wing pilot, 2 Jedi (maybe) and a Anakin. We would love for more Rebels of all kinds to make it to this event. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE try to make it to this event. This event is just as big as Star Wars Weekends due to it's broadcast in 9 states.

Richard, you know I'll be there. Probably in my X-wing gear as we've got 3 RFTs already.

Come on and sign up everyone! This is going to be fun! Mr. Green

We (mid-ga group) have talked about this as well. We were wanting to come down with Squad 7 to participate with them in another parade. I'll talk with Hal, Beau, and the rest of the guys about that. Daph?

One of the Squad 7 guys has got a special rate at the Hilton Garden Inn at the Airport for 501st members. I'll probably be staying there. Let me know who else is interested and I'll get the room rates for you.
