There are several troops on May The Fourth as well as it being Free Comic Book Day.

I would like to request all hands on deck for this event. If you cant be in costume, a Star Wars T-shirt will work fine. Last year we had 2,500 people through the door, this year we are expecting well over 3,000. We were caught off guard but it was a smash hit event.

Here is a link to the Facebook page, I will post a link to WOTR when they update their website.
https://www.facebook.com/events/480476315321674/

Hugh (Banzai) has a troop in Castle Rock on the same day. This would be a great alternative for anyone that cant make it all the way up to Denver. http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41530

We will have scheduled photo ops with specific characters and themes. We will need volunteers to man stations like greeting at the Xwing, Star Wars mini golf and some other fun craft things for the kids. We are also looking to have a green screen feature as well.

This is a Joint Op. Free admission is for people volunteering only and you must sign up ahead of time to be on the list. No name on the list, no free entry.

Lets start a sign up list here.

1) Jeff (Darthhair)
2) Bill (Obay Wann)
3) Tony (Jello)
4) Shana (Plushie)

I have noticed troops/events are being classified as ‘Announcements’ now. Just a friendly reminder, some events are in the ‘Sticky’ section. Thumbs up

Correction regarding the Library event in Castle Rock, this is NOT my event. The event came to us through the Rebel Legion. The event organizer submitted an appearance request through the RL home page back in September 2012. NOT being my event, our Regional Captain for this event area may want to inform the event organizer if this event (Library) is a go. Wink Last I heard regarding this event, the 501st and Mandalorian Mercs has been invited too. This is all I know about this event. Smile

No sweat Hugh, I figured you were the POC on that one. If its a no go, let me know.

I am trying something new as far as announcements, sticky's and troops go. Announcements will stay up for a week then get turned into a sticky if its a troop or needs to be kept at the top for vital info, troops will be sticky til they are completed.

Jeff, thank you for giving me the final say on the Castle Rock Library event for May 4th Surprised but since I am neither the POC for this event nor the Regional Captain that handles the event area, I must decline. I believe the RC and/or you should make that decision and inform the event organization.

(posted here and in the event thread to prevent any miscommunication) Thumbs up

Droids will be there! Don't know if I'll have time to help out at the RL table, but you know I'll try.

Not so much tables, as group displays... With all the activities we'll have going on, this is more of a community service than a recruiting opportunity. We're going to set up banners/displays, but everyone will be working the activities and photo-ops.

This is a chance to DEMONSTRATE what the Legions are about, instead of just talking about it. Smile

Shana, can you post this at the MG forums? I can't.

We need your help at May the Fourth

The Rocky Mountain Fan Force is inviting members from the 501st and Rebel Legion to May the Fouth at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. Last year was big, this year will be huge!!!

One of the new things for this year is “Featured Photo Op” sessions. We will have a professional photographer taking pictures in front of a green screen, and adding in themed backdrops in post production. We will then post those pictures up for people to get them.

Each Featured Photo-Op session is 50 minutes long, with a 10 minute transition between sessions. The prep room is within feet of the photography area, and secured for the event.

This is the list of groups we'd like to put together for the sessions:

Heroes of the Rebellion (Princess Leia, Luke, Chewie, Han, Lando, etc.)
Clone Wars
Rebel Pilots
Droids
Lords of the Empire (Vader, Emperor, Guards, etc.)
Bounty Hunters Guild

If anyone wants to do a costume change to fit into 2 groups, we can rearrange the order of the photo-ops to accommodate them.

In addition to this, there will be other photo backdrops, the X-Wing and all of the normal trooping opportunities.

If you can, please sign up and let us know what costumes you can wear, and what times you are available.

Request posted in the command section. I honestly could have sworn something was posted officially on this as everyone is aware of the event! Whups!

Star Wars at the Hanger was a complete success. Thanks to everyone that came out and trooped.

As usual I didnt have my camera but there are quite a few pictures posted on Facebook. Anyone want to post links to the day?

Easiest to link my gallery this way.
http://www.mg501.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=692

I also cross decked my FB gallery to the MB FB page.

Thank you to everyone who helped make Aidan's day all the more special! He is our Make a Wish child and we presented him with goodies and a first ever honorary X-Wing crew member certificate!

Dally bestowed a medal of the Rebellion upon him and Leichtsaber pinned a pair of pilot's wings to his shirt!

The awesome folks at DCC provided the family weekend passes too!
