I will be a panelist for the "Return of the Clubs" panel, which will discuss fan organizations. I'm proud to say that the Rebel Legion is the headlining organization for this panel. Smile If anyone would like to help me out, or even just be at the panel to offer moral support, I'd sure appreciate it.

And of course, don't forget to stop by the Mos Icee Cantina (room 231), hosted by the Minnesota Force, with support from the Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion.
