From communications I have received, it looks like Shannon McRandle will be coming to ROFCon.

We will also have some dealings with John Herzler (General/Chancelor Martok from Star Trek). They may be asking us to "remove" him from the end of his panel.
Additionally, he will be in his full Klingon makeup and uniform during the convention (at least during the Klingon Feast).

John Paladin will be giving a panel at the convention. He is a Hollywood make-up and special effects artist. His panel will be on the construction and application of a Klingon Makeup (complete with custom prosthetic forehead). The convention will be raffling off an opportunity for someone to be the subject of this makeup. They will get to keep the makeup used. Sorry folks, but I will be planning to attend this one.

Cher from the Carolina Garrison is also listed as a guest.

The panels the 501st is currently on the schedule for are:

Saturday 10 AM - Meet the Rebel Legion
Saturday 6:00 PM - non-Imperial Armor (This will be a joint op with the Mandalorians)
Sunday 12:30 PM - soft Star Wars costumes (this will be a joint op with the Rebel Legion)

We will need volunteers to staff these panels. We will also need volunteers to staff the table (and set up and break down).

This is the current schedule, and is undergoing MAJOR revisions. These times may be changed up to the day of the convention.


Currently there is a Steam Punk Star Wars panel. We are not requested to participate in this panel at this time. Posted for information only.

They are looking for people to do a Star Wars EU panel. Ms. McRandal may be participating in this one. Time has not been set.

Ok, I may be able to come now. I am hoping to be there. I just have to get some things taken care of before then.

I was going to attend but have decided not to attend now.....I have no desire with all this RL drama going on right now and the direction this club is going in whole to represent the RL in any way right now. Hopefully things will change down the road

Does anyone want to share a room? I have a 2 Queen bed room at the Holiday Inn Host hotel. It would help out greatly if I could spit the cost with someone.

Due to personal reasons, I may have to leave either Saturday or Sunday to attend a funeral. My part of the room will be paid for completely.

Sorry to hear this! Sad Of course, the funeral is the priority, though. Will miss you, Conley!

Domnu -

Rick has you down for the Soft Armor on Sunday, 12:30. I'm sure you'd be welcome at the Meet the RL on 9:30 or 10am Saturday too if you want. And time at the table Smile

Hugs!
