Hey Rebels! Hope Roten here from the 501st asking for some Rebels to help invade the Wilkes County Library Con! We have a full schedule of events and a pretty nice guest list. C'mon guys and gals! Let's rock thing! The library had no specific character requests so any and all are welcome! This may be a small event but it promises to be a big deal for the locals here. This event is also collaborating with the Library’s Summer Reading Program so we are expecting lots of kids there! So calling all Jedi, Rebels, and all you other light siders, This Imperial needs your help! Here are the details,


What: Wilkes Library-Con

-A miniature family-friendly convention that doubles as the ‘grand finale’ for the Library’s Summer Reading Program. The event is an all day celebration of authors, artists, actors, and activities the whole family can enjoy! Complete with special guests, fun events, interactive panels, and more! Best of all, con admission is FREE!


When: July 25th from 10-4


Where: Wilkes County Public Library

215 Tenth Street
North Wilkesboro NC 28659


Who: Any and all 501st, Rebels, and Mercs who would like to attend.


Why: Because we are the best at what we do!


How: By the power of the Force!


Specifics (regarding trooping this event): You can arrive anytime between 9-10 as con setup begins at 9AM (I’ll be there helping to set things up then) and con start time is at 10. I think it’s most practical that we troop between 10:30-12:30 but the library staff said that we are welcome to troop as long as we like. The 501st/Mercs/Rebels will be given a table to display props and information and all 501st/Mercs/Rebels are invited to participate in the “Meet the 501st, Rebels, and Mercs” panel to talk about making props and armor. We will be given a secure changing area (for those who trooped my book release party it will be the same area as last time) and the library staff will provide water and snacks for us. Since the Con is taking up the whole library we can troop the whole facility! Although I have arranged for us to troop between 10:00-12:30, everyone is welcome to stay for the rest of the con festivities or if everyone is feeling up to it we can get back in gear for the second half. If you are interested in attending please let me know what costume you are bringing and if you plan on bringing friends or family to enjoy the con as I can let the library staff know.


Guest List: So far we have 501st/Rebels/Mercs, Star Trek Independent Fleet/Klingon Assault Group, Derek and Nikki Davis from Bitter Tea Studios, horror author Scott Nicholson, fantasy author Elaine Corvidae, local film makers Chris Church and Michael Heckel, and professional podcaster Rich Sigfrit.


Event Schedule:

10:00-10:30: Harry Potter Discussion Panel
Join local Ravenclaw Larkin Reynolds for a discussion about the Harry Potter books and movies.

10:30-11:00: Podcast 101
Join professional podcaster Rich Sigfrit for a 10 minute mini Adventure

11:00-11:30: Cos-play Runway
Come dressed as your favorite Storybook, Comic Book, or Graphic Novel character and participate in our Cos-play Runway.

11:30:12:00: Meet the 501st, Rebels, and Mandos
Members of the 501st/Mando Mercs/Rebel Legion will be talking about how to make Star Wars Costumes and props

WHOO HOO! 16 days left!

Just another bump and just so you know, I was on the local radio station this morning plugging the con and I also got to plug the 501st! I even was able to weasel in the Rebel Legion during my “Imperial Plug”.

We would really love to have some Rebel support on this. All light-side characters are welcome. This event is free and we are expecting a lot of kids. Although I’ve got us down for trooping from 10-30-12:30 everyone is more than welcome to stay for the rest of the con festivities. Snacks and water will be provided and we will have a changing area.

Just another bump guys and galls of the rebellion!

10 days to go!

Also wanted to let you know that we are planning a post-con dinner for the staff and con guests that you are also invited too. Just let me know ahead of time so I can get a head count. Right now we are looking at either Applebee’s or Kubi Japanese Steakhouse .

no worries! I understand. Smile

Well I do have some bad news...Derek and Nikki Davis will not be able to attend as Nikki had to have foot surgery. I was really looking forward to having them there to talk about their comic strips and artwork. Crying or Very sad

Does anyone want to come help out with this? I would love to have you good-guys and gals there too!
