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!

ETA: Nightshifer from MWG actually already posted this on our local forums, but I'll add the pictures Smile

yeah...I keep forgetting that all of your posting is done on the Bloodfin forums...
we at NSB post mostly everything here at the RL boards cuz we don't have our own website...

but..

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...

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.

in conclusion....

this is the Mission Report I filed:



Not your average Library event!
On June 1, 2013 NSB was on hand along with members of Dantooine Base and Mos Espa Base for the 4th Annual Joliet Library Star Wars Day.

In addition to the RL Bases, we had representatives from the Midwest Garrison, Wisconsin Garrison and Black Ice Squad, Northern Darkness Garrison, Bloodfin Garrison, Great Lakes Garrison and 70th Explorers Garrison.

We also had representatives of the Mandolorian Mercs, The Jedi Assembly and the R2 Builders.

In all around 80 costumed people were on hand at the two venues for this event. The Empire occupied the Joliet Public Library and the Joliet Historical Society was home to the Rebel Base.

We also had artists Dave Dorman, Mikey Babinski, Janine Jender, Steve Palanica and Jim Tampa.

And if that wasn't enough for you...
we also had Orli Shoshan.


I think photos are worth a thousand words....so...
rather than blah blah blah anymore...
here are some photos:


























































The Rebel Legion Display:







































I urge you to go here to see more photos...

but sorry for the chaotic manner in which they are orgnized. As one of the 2 organizers of the costumed characters for this event...I was quite busy all day...in addition to the usual, I also was signed up as a target for SWA, our table, and a few other things...so I didn't get many photos taken for myself...so I asked if I could steal from everyone else...
and...
btw...
we even had a Bluesmobile (shield your eyes...I am wearing my hot weather and informal Jedi costume)..



Thanks Rich for supporting my sagging body by the end of the day...it was a looooooooong two days for me..




A short video of our Star Wars Academy (my sincere thanks to RFT Steve Szyndrowski for taking the SWA over and putting it through its paces)

A video (though...as you will see it was put together by the local Chamber of Commerce so a lot of it is a big commercial....lol...) that covers only a small portion of this event.

I'm hoping to make this next year. With WSMI in town it was impossible for me to get away.
