Hi, folks!

I write as the CO of the 501st Legion's Singapore Garrison. I had issued an invite to all 501st and Rebel Legion units within Asia to the Chingay Parade 2015. This post lists useful information Smile If you have further queries, please PM me. If you're a RL trooper from outside Asia but you'd like to troop with us as well, you're most welcome!

Basics

Dates: 27 (Fri) and 28 (Sat) February 2015.
Venue: Formula 1 Pit Stop building
Secure Luggage and Changing Room: Yes, within the F1 Pit Stop building.

Unfortunately, although Disney thought of supporting us this year, they decided the timing was more suitable for Cinderella. So, this trip has to be entirely self-financed. However, I've listed some of the better budget hotel options below.

FAQs (WIP)

Q: Will we be walking on water again?
A: No.

Q: Will we be walking under fire again?
A: No, but ... we might end up near a bunch of fire-eaters. Still under negotiation.

Q: Can we store our stuff at the venue and change up there?
A: Yes, and you can keep them there overnight for the next day. In fact, we plan to stash our costumes there the day before.

The 2012 Parade

The previous parade report has been truncated on the Mission Reports forum, so I've attached a PDF to this post (scroll to bottom).

Locale

Here's a location of the general area:

The F1 Pit Building is the one on the left, near the sea, with a black and white chequered flag.
