Hail and Well Met!

Rebel Legion, the 501st Legion, R2 Builders, The Dark Empire, and the Mandalorian Mercs were invited to attend and set-up tables at Con-X in KCMO, this being the first year of the Con. While attendance was probably not what they were hoping (200+ persons), for being a brand new Con, I think it went well.

Con X, Kansas City's Newest Con!
Ramada Inn
September 14th - 16th, 2012

Attending: Rich H, Bill and Karissa H, Chris R, Greg B, Bart and Sarah G, Andy S, Nick L, Brandon and Susan E, Trenton T, John M, Daryl W, Dave S, Brandon P, Bruce C, Tommy and Kelly S, Scott S, Michael S, Lisa S, Dave and Laura W...quite the turn out!

All four groups were well represented, and most of those attending are multiple legion members...so we did our stance dance from kit to kit.

The guests in attendance were fantastic! Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) and Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov) from Star Trek drew quite the crowd, and both were willing to chat and mingle with those attending and the costume groups. We even threw a birthday bash for Walter Koenig complete with cake...which he donated to the people attending the event.

One of our many group shots...



Security at the gates...



Even Cobra came out! (Cobra's Finest - they're also RL/501st/MM/TDE members)





Willrow stopped by for a bit...



...then a Mando stole the data core!








We also had the privilege of presented an action figure to Tom Kane, the voice of Yoda! The action figure presented was of Asajj Ventress, which was what his daughter dressed as for CVI. His daughter was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, so we as an entire region wanted to show our support and respect.

(hint: you see a picture of his daughter on the action figures cardboard background...Smile )









All in all it was a great Con, and they're planning to return next year! The people running the show stayed in communication with us, and asked for constant feedback, so I believe it'll get better and better.
