An annual joint event with the 501st. It was also Russell Hunter's first RL event.

I met Brian Munger early just outside the center and we unloaded his various display items such as new banners, as well as his recently completed Imperial R2 unit and set up the table area for the public. We were stationed immediately next to Rancho Obi Wan's small museum display with books and other items that were for sale.
Russel arrived after a while and changed into his Jedi costume and then took over for his table shift. I wandered around for a bit before changing into a snowspeeder pilot costume and joined the Tusken Raiders and the stormtroopers outside for lots of photo ops.
We broke for a free lunch thanks to a generous donor, and I took over the table for my shift.
Several members of the 501st also manned the table, notably Brian and Dan.

RL members:

David Buckley
Russell Hunter

501st:

Brian Munger
Ken Sciacca - Tusken raider
Chris Mortensen - Tusken raider
Marcus Wessels - sandtrooper
Dan Norgan - sandtrooper

And a special appearance by Jon Peters, photographer.
