Welcome to the newly formed Mos Espa Base...proudly serving Indiana!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the members of Midwest Base for their support during this transition. I am a new member, but without the guidance and support from MWB members throughout the years, this new endeavour wouldn't have been possible.

I wanted to give some background about our name choice. Indiana has a long tradition of racing. The Indianapolis 500. The Brickyard 400 (no longer known as the Allstate 400 Confused ), the Formula 1 Grand Prix, The Purdue University Grand Prix. The Indiana University Little 500. The list goes on.

Another small burg has a similar tradition of hosting races. Mos Espa spaceport, on the desolate planet of Tatooine, was home to the famous Boonta Eve Classic pod race. We wanted to pay homage to Indiana's outstanding tradition of racing excellence.

In the near future, we will be establishing our forums so that Mos Espa members and come together and get to know each other better. We will continue to foster the outstanding relationship we have with our local sister organization, Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st Legion. We will also continue to promote excellency in costuming, support local charitable organizations and community outreach groups, and propagate the wonder that is Star Wars.

So stop by, say "HI", and make yourself at home with some Hoosier hospitality! Until then..

Fight On To Victory!

It is good to serve Mike as the XO of this newly formed base. We are aware that change is sometimes difficult, but also exciting. While continuing to serve the mission and goals of the Rebellion, I see this as an opportunity to provide better, more focused administration to the members who live and primarily troop in Indiana.

I want to thank the leadership of the MidWest Base for their support in this process. I know that it means a big change for them, as well, as they make decisions on the collective fate of the MWB as well as the fate of the individual states within the base.

Finally, I hope that Indiana can be a good example of RL Base and 501st Garrison cooperation. Bringing Star Wars into the real world through costuming and helping our communities is what it's all about.

I like the history background of the Logo. Very appropriate.

I agree with everything that Quag said in his post.

I look forward to trooping with everyone as a Rebel now. Who ever knew I would ever do a costume that would show my face. Smile

My family heritage surrounds Indianapolis and the Midwest, so wanted to wish you folks the best as a new base!
I knew something was going on when my former leader Matt had a new sig on his messages. We all will miss his leadership, but you folks have a great resource having him in your group. Don't let him slip past any new assignments... he can handle them. Wink
Love the choice of racing as your theme!
