The 501st Legion's Empire City Garrison and the Rebel Legion's Echo Base have been asked to attend the ICON 31 Convention at Stony Brook University, Long Island, NY being held Friday March 30th, Saturday March 31st, and Sunday April 1st 2012 from 10:00AM - 6:00PM each day. We have been working out the details for our appearance and hope to have more specifics in the next few weeks. We usually hone in on the Saturday as the "Main" day, and do a Panel discussion that day. This is the largest convention on the island, and this year the media guests include Jeremy Bulloch (Star Wars : Bobba Fett), Paul Blake (Star Wars : Greedo), Sarah Douglas (Superman II / Conan the Destroyer), Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who #7), and Frazer Hines (Doctor Who : Jamie McCrimmon), with many other literary and comic guests. This is a fan convention run by fans, and we have been offered up to 10 free admission passes to share between the 501st and Rebel Legion. There are no Guest / Squire passes available at this time, if you troop you get a pass, anyone else will have to pay.

Update: We have a FINAL count and have 5 Passes for the RL, anyone else interested to attend you would be welcomed to come, but unfortunately you will need to purchase a pass. Unfortunately the passes are Non-Transferable, but once you have it you may be able to pass it on. To pick up your Pass go to the SAC building, bypass the line, and ask for where to pick up the comp badges.You must bring valid Photo ID to pick up the pass, they will be in your name specifically and you will need to sign it. After you get your pass head over to the dealer room in the Sports complex building, we should be allowed in there after 9am. We do not have changing accommodations except behind the table and the bathroom unfortunately. At 4pm on Saturday we have our Panel scheduled in the SAC room 309, please participate if you can. At 5pm we have been asked to escort Paul Blake (greedo) to his panel "Who Shot First" in SAC room 303. Also be aware that Jeremy Bulloch has his talk at the SAC auditorium at 1pm on Saturday, we may want to drop by.

Notes: There is a strict "NO GUN" policy at this con, due to security regulations at the school. No prop weapons of any kind that resemble a gun can be brought on campus. I know this is very unfortunate, but please understand we must abide by this. We have attended this convention for the past 10 years, and for me it was my first troop with the 501st Legion (after attending the con on my own for the past 20 years). I actually became aware of the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion through a friend in 2001, and met the guys in the ECG at ICONS that same year. It took me 7 years, when my twin were 8 years old, until I had enough time to seriously consider joining. It is a real fan convention run by fans, for the fans, and it is a special and familiar event for me. The past few years we had a tough time getting folks to come, last year was a bit better, and we had 7 attend. Please consider going if you are definitely available and can make it out to Stony Brook, lets rock this con.

We should be able to go on the Saturday no problem. Sunday we will either be able to do a full day or half a day. Sometimes Daniel's Aunt has Easter Dinner on Palm Sunday which is that Sunday.

Great news folks, we may be able to get a table in the dealer room like we did last year. This will mean a lot more exposure and attendees at the table. It also means that everyone will need a pass, so if you dd not get one of the 10 they gave us, you will have to purchase one.

In your envelope you will find your badge and lanyard, a map of the campus, a welcome letter, and your itinerary with instructions on doing panel programs for the Fandom track at I-CON.

Sounds great!

I know it's a 'no gun' policy however what is this year's con position on lightsabers? If they are against carrying around the con, can we still put up a display rack behind with blades, or let people hold them for photo ops?
