About this event:

“In Another Galaxy” Star Wars Weekend at the Strong, National Museum of Play.

Members of Garrison Excelsior of the 501st, Echo Base Rebel Legion, along with Guest members of the 501st Canadian Garrison & Fan Force Buffalo- The Northridge , and Special Guest , Star Wars Artist, Katie Cook, all came together to create a Magical, Out of This World, weekend for over 10,000 Guests for the Weekend, a weekend that was almost 3 years in the planning. Special Thanks to Nicky Blum, for the phenomenal job of coordinating this event.

The Museum, expected 5000 for the weekend. Attendance on Saturday was 6169! Sunday, was 4010! WOW!!!!! We more than DOUBLED the previous attendance records. Awesome Job Everyone!

After Saturday’s troop, we celebrated a very successful 1st day, with a mixer for the all costumers & an Induction Ceremony naming Katie Cook as a Honorary Garrison Excelsior member, awarding her a special plaque & a bag full of Legion & Garrison swag.

Sunday was just as crazy, Lines to get in were wrapped around the building. There was a constant flow of picture takers the whole time. Another successful day! Shout Out! & thank you to Michael Fisher, a local professional photographer, for taking our group pictures on Sunday. Michael’s son is the smaller Jawa in Sunday’s pic, who has become an unofficial Junior member of GE. Sunday’s After Troop Dinner was smaller as many out of towners had to head home. Our Canadian Troopers stayed, along with a small group of GE members, enjoyed a nice relaxing dinner at a local diner.

Since then, the Positive comments have been rolling in…… especially this one from Corrie, our Coordinator from the Strong National Museum of Play……...

“Nicky, thanks again for being such a FANTASTIC coordinator and for making our In Another Galaxy weekend possible. I can’t believe we broke an attendance record for Saturday and Sunday. That is absolutely amazing. Not only did we have over 10,000 people in two days, but the atmosphere of the weekend was magical. I have heard over and over again—from guests, volunteers, and staff alike—what a stellar weekend it was. And, as our CEO wrote, “…a huge intergalactic salute for “going the extra light year”!!!”

We, at the museum, give you and the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion a standing ovation!

And, we look forward working together again in the future”

That Says it all!
