Mission report from August 10th in Richmond, Virginia
I got to the event about 6:30pm in full Jedi (in 95 degree heat no less) and met up with other members of Freedom Base and 501st Garrison Tyrannus
We were escorted in and welcomed with open arms.
A little before 7 when the VIP doors were to open we were greeted by Seth Green, Matt Senreich and Clare Grant (one of the duo who won the Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge for SABER, and oh, did I mention she is Seth's GF). We got some of the pictures out of the way in the beginning
We had 2 Jedi, a ROTJ Fett, a Sandtrooper, a TK, 3 EP 2 CLones, one Tie Pilot, an Airborne Clone a Vader and oh yeah...our very own ROBOT CHICKEN VADER...
The line for the VIP went around one side and the General Admission line went back about 1/2 mile down the road...no lie
The only bad part was that there was little to no air in the venue except for one vent blasting cold air which all the SW folks were huddling around so as to not pass out.
Right before the band, Gym Class Heroes went on, myself and Eddie Woodmancy from 501st GT were brought up on stage and we presented Matt and Seth with an 11" RL patch each, a couple of Garrison Tyrannus patches, a RAID coin, a GT coin, one of the Glow in the Dark RL shirts and a few trading cards.
The crowd LOVED US and really got into it.
we also gave them some tattoos and such.
after the presentation, Seth came up to me and said how much of a swag hound he and Matt are and are trying to get a challenge coin from each of the bases....which I am working on.
Both were great and the band sounded good too.
Overall it was a phenomenal troop.

We really missed all those who couldn't make it out to the event, it was so much fun! Also, it was just slightly cooler than the surface of the sun! Smile

what a time we had; not just talking about the heat either! FB and GT were well represented and made this a very succesful event! Seth and Matt were great host; welcoming each one of us personally and thanking us for our participation. All I can say is we braved the elements and ROCKED THE HOUSE!!
