in conclusion:
this was 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...
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.


Thanks to all our costumed folks!

We had such a great time and you guys did a wonderful job! I know things got a bit crazy, but it went over extremely well. I really look forward to next year's event and we'll hopefully get you some more rebels up there. Very Happy
