My dear Rebels, Imperials, Droid Builders and Mandos, here it is again: Model Expo Hobby Fair. If you haven´t heard about it before it´s Scandinavia's largest scale models and trade show of hands skills.
Model Expo has been held since 1981.
More than 200 industry exhibitors will present their products and operations.
Part of the event is the industry's companies, associations, museums, clubs, and individual enthusiasts who bring samples of a total of more than 1500 scale models and other delightful and entertaining hobby work.
So there we go...
What does this got to do with us?
Well.. Pretty much actually.
We´ve had a stand in this fair for many years in the row. So trust me, this is a big thing.
There will be at least 3-4 other fairs at the same time and you can access to all of those with the same ticket.
We are talking about around 45 000 - 60 000 guests or so, which most of them are kids. And trust me, they all love Star Wars!
And everything, we can collect money wise, goes straight to UNICEF. There will be collectors on the stand, dressed up
with UNICEF vests, with a money bank and collecting donations.

We are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Return of the Jedi and that will be the theme for our stand, but all SW costumes are welcome.

What we will offer to you guys for doing this with us is:
-We will provide as many of you as possible a free accommodation with your families in our homes
-We will provide you all the transportation at this end the journey, from the harbor/airport and back, from accommodation to the trooping place and back
-We will provide food at the convention (and to those who are accommodated to local troopers) to you and your family so you don´t have to worry about that.

At Saturday evening we are going to have traditional afterparty at our place.
One thing about the afterparty: It is alcohol free. Because of many reasons.

Recommended arriving date is 26.4. and leaving in 29.4. That´s because event starts Saturday at 9 am and ends in Sunday 6 pm. If you have to arrive at Saturday morning or leave at Sunday evening that can be arranged, but still Friday/Monday are recommended.

Let´s show everybody that what does it mean, when you have four country flags in logos and what can be achieved when all becomes one.
Rebels, Garrison, Droid Builders and Mandos side by side, Nordic people side by side!
We can do this TOGETHER!
If there´s anything you need to know or anything that comes up into your mind, just ask us!

Sign up is in Nordic Garrion forum: http://www.nordicgarrison.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=6776

If you can´t see that topic and you wanted to attend let me know.

Sign up expires 5. April midnight Finnish time.

How are you Swedish members travelling to Helsinki?

It was indeed nice to meet you Rebels today on Model Expo. Sadly I was not able to troop with you as much I wanted. Still my opportunity to shake your hands and see your fantastic costumes was great joy.
Once again NB / NG was more than well represented on Expo. People were really astonished by props and they were huge!!

Both the AT-ST and the speeder bike were incredible, all built by our Finnish members.





All my pics from the Expo can be found here

Here's a pic of most of the Endor people taken from the Nordic Garrison FB account.
