With permission from both Garrison CO's, I spoke with Bucky from Big Easy Comics about doing a joint troop between Dagobah Base and Bast Alpha Garrison on Free Comic Book Day at Big Easy Comics.

I will be meeting with Bucky Tuesday afternoon @ BEC to get more information and planning this event!

this is great, D'on. We should be able to have several events for free comic book day in different locations. Most comic book stores are small and can't accommodate a lot of people standing around in costume, so just a few at each store is perfect.

We need to get you some promotional material before then so you'll have something to hand out about the Rebel Legion.

I am meeting with the Comic Book shop manager tomorrow. He informed me he is doing flyers up for the event. I sent both Dagobah Base and BAG logo's to him so he can put it on the flyer.

I would like the PDF for RL cards to be made. I will go to Office Depot and get some printed up so I can hand them out.

I met with the Owner of Big Easy Comics, Steve and Manager Bucky this afternoon. They are really excited that we are coming to do FCBD. There will be a changing area for us, a place to store our gear, plus there will be food and refreshments. We will be able to maneuver around the store as there is plenty of space to move and the parking lot is really big. Many of the stores there are closed on Saturday so parking will be no issue and there is plenty of shade to get out of the sun. They will be doing up flyers next month and I will be getting some to pass along. Also per request Steve would like some pics of us in our costumes and he will use them on the event page that BEC will put up in a month.

Also the time for this will be from 10AM till Midnight. So if anyone who does other FCBD events in other areas and they end early it would be awesome if you all can make it to Mandeville.

I think I've been in that store. It's a pretty large store for a comic book store.

Any other Rebels like to join us in Mandeville for FCBD? It is a very big shop with plenty of room inside and out.

I like to personally thank Ed Cook, Scott Smith and Johnathan Robinson for coming out to Big Easy Comics today. Steve and Bucky were really happy and said that a lot of people were really happy to see us standing outside and brought them in. They had a bigger turnout than last year. I will be posting a new event that I would love for many of us to be a part of.
