Well this was a very small event - but there was a Rebel presence.

Andrew, Valissa and I all attended. There was no Rebel Legion or 501st table but we still walked around and did photo ops. We also had quite a discussion with Gerald Howe.

Andrew : AT-AT driver for the 501st
Me: Xwing Pilot
Valissa: Jedi

It was Valissa's first event and I am glad Andrew and I went to help her out. Though it was small we did well and Mr. Howe was happy we were there!

Yes because it was small we got to talk in length with Gerald Home (I misspelled that the first time) and Randy Martinez.

They were really friendly and Andrew gave him some rare cards. He signed some stuff for us for free and he remembered Andrew. Andrew was happy! It was a lot of fun. Especially when the three of us walked by the hotel pool in costume and there was a bunch of kids there. Although Andrew scared one little girl with his AT-AT driver. Good thing Vader wasn't there. LOL!

Small but fun all the same!

Yeah strange time for your first troop. But you will learn how to improvise in case of emergency. Without a table or booth we are really just there for ambiance...

I wish the three of us could of gotten a picture with Gerald Home. He probably would of done it. We just didn't think of it...

Hope to see you again soon Valissa...you make an awesome Jedi. You did great and it was fun taking Andrew prisoner...hehehe
