To all of our Rebels and potential Rebels who might be working on a costume......our biggest event of the year is coming up.

If you are working on a costume, I urge you to finish your costume and submit it for approval so that you can participate fully in this event. Full members only will be able to march in the parade and have access to our changing areas.

Now, you may be thinking that this is just another Library event....and you could not be more wrong.....

Last year, we had approximately 120 people in costume and 11,000 people from many States came to this event. Streets are blocked off and the event is held in 3 facilities along with the streets.

Here is a copy and paste of last years "Mission Report" this looks like something you would like to participate in...
after the Mission more about this years massive Rebel Legion/Nar Shaddaa Base display build...a full size Endor Bunker.

This year NSB featured our Pilots for the display

Some group photos

The Outlaws

I see Pilots...

This year our charity project was selling official "Nar Shaddaa Base Holdout Blasters" - these were actually just blasters found at Dollar Tree that looked suspiciously like a concept blaster that Tim Jarmusz had made...
the blasters were offered as a "prop challenge" for $3.00 - a whopping $620.00 was collected from this project. The money is headed to one of our own...details to follow once the check is sent out.

I stole a lot of good photos off Facebook for this event...

here are but a few...

Tim Jarmusz trying to recruit more Pilots...

Never put these two in the same room....trouble will likely follow...

Always good to see members of Renegade Squad out and about..

The Jedi...

Aggressive negotiations in the Solo household

the Skywalkers...

NSB had both of their Wookiees out tag teaming.. will never know what you might see at the after party...

More photos...both my own...and stolen from only the finest albums on Facebook are here:[/quote]

That being said...
here is what we are building this year:

and we are well on our way:

The Bunker Build has been one massive project that is still on-going but we will be finished in time to have the set piece up at the end of April. It will remain on display until after the Star Wars Day event.

Rebel Legion members from all Bases are encouraged to join us....just please let us know that you will be coming so that we can make sure to have room for everyone.

Details will follow as they are available...

This is what I do know:

Date: 6-3-17
Time: Changing rooms open at 8:00 AM
Rebel Group photos starting around 9:30
Line up for parade: 10:30 AM

The Rebel Base is:
Joliet Area Historical Museum (that is where the Bunker will be):

The Empire
will be at:
Joliet Public Library:

This year the Rialto Theater in Joliet is on board also. It will be home to the Mandalorian Mercs and other things.

Every. Blasted. Year. I've had something going on that weekend. This year I was like "Okay, finally joined the RL, I'm GOING TO JOLIET DARNIT IT LOOKS AMAZING."

Aaaaaand it's the weekend I'll be in Detroit for the 50th anniversary of my uncle's ordination. He only gets one of those.

I WILL see you all there next year! :-)
