Last year I posted an invitation for all surrounding Bases to join in the fun of this all day event at the Joliet Public Library in Joliet IL.


This year, we are expanding the event to include two venues - both the Joliet Library and the Joliet Historic Museum.


Please let me know if you are interested and I have posted below some photos of our event last year to give you an idea. I have also posted a few photos of the space that the Rebels will likely occupy.










Some of last year's display:














There are lots of games for the kids like the Trash Compactor Dive:




Cut the arm off the Wampa:




Cadet Training:








and many more games and things like a "tattoo parlor".




There were LOTS of costumes:







and

Artists like Dave Dorman shown in this photo of our "after party" at the full sized Cantina Bar:











So...if any of you are interested in joining in....
please let me know...


Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the invite, sounds like a fun little train outing for the weekend, except I'm already promised to head the other direction to Denver Comicon that weekend.

I'm hoping to make at least a couple troops up in Chicago this coming year. This looks like a good one! I don't have anything planned as of right now for then so I'll be looking to keep this date open. Very Happy

always in motion....the future is...

and...
yes...mark this one down as one to attend if you are able to...
it is one of our largest events and the Rebellion will be setting up a display of all sorts of costume pieces and props at the Museum...
so if you have some really neat items...
let us know...and bring them with you for display for the day.

Awesome...

You will find all of the different threads for planning this event in this part of the MWG forum:

http://www.midwestgarrison.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=135


This is a very family friendly event....
there will be games for the kids...
admission to the event is free....
you will pick up your lanyard at the Library...and that lanyard will entitle you to view the Historic Museum free also...
so..
there should be something for everyone...

I'll try and ask off, it's the weekend after my brother's wedding so I'll see what happens Smile
Looking at those pictures, those are some seriously impressive costumes on display. I'm kinda feeling bummed now that my initial plans to move back to Chicago after graduation didn't work out!

Trying to make sure this event stays on your radar.

We had our second planning meeting yesterday with the Joliet Library, the Joliet Historical Musuem, City of Joliet Chamber of Commerce and the Joliet Police Department.

Planning is going very well and by next month's meeting we should know a lot more.

We will have an entire street blocked off.

We will have SW artist Dave Dorman back along with other artists (I have also asked Mikey Babinski to appear-he was one of the artists for our RL Sketch Card series and lives in Illinois).

Several of the R2 Builders have expressed a desire to come.

Last year over 3,000 people attended...this year estimates are for over 4,000.

The Rebel Base will be the Joliet Historical Museum and we are talking about near the end of the event we will have Rebels return to the Rebel Base (the Museum) and Imperials to the Imperial Base (the Library) for group photos at each "Base"...
then Rebels and Imperials will leave their "Bases" for the grand finale "face off" on Clinton Street and then have one large group photo.

As always, the Rebellion is outnumbered, but we do plan on having a strong presence and a great display at the Historical Musuem along with lightsaber demos by two of NSB life long swordsman.

I hope you consider this event when planning your summer.

Rich..
saw you registered at the Midwest Garrison boards...

AWESOME!

It will be great to meet you and any of the other members from Dantooine Base...

If you have some neato Rebel props to display
make sure to bring them along!


btw...
we will be having another meeting with the Library, Museum, Joliet Chamber of Commerce and the Police Dept on Feb 26th...
one thing we are trying to do is get a "convention" rate at a nearby hotel so that all participants coming in from a distance can stay together...

We will be meeting monthly from here on in so I will post updates as they are available.

If you guys have some temporary tattoos from you base...please bring them along as the Library does conduct a "tatoo parlor".

I do know that several of you are coming up for this event...
and....
to encourage others..

please see this Mission Report on a television segment we were on hand for yesterday..

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47688



The space that the television segment was filmed at is going to be "our space" - the home of the Rebellion for this event.


Wink



Make sure to watch the other video on this event as it features some of the games and activities that are a part of the Joliet Library/Historical Museuem Star Wars Day.
