Neither rain, sleet nor dark of night...
or something like that...
yesterday members from both Outlaw Squadron and Renegade Squad joined the Midwest Garrison for the Naperville St. Pat's Parade. The weather left something to be desired, but in retrospect - it could have been a lot worse. The persistant drizzle, mist and rain did keep the crowds down for the parade....but never the less - the people who did line the parade route were excited to see us. Ted (MWG Organizer) said that the Parade committee was disappointed that we were not at this parade last year...but we showed up in force this year.

Schph Gochi (Phyllis Schulte) -though since I drove my Jeep in the parade - I did not put on the entire costume...
Whinter Fenlynn (Cheryl Whitaker) was undercover in her Biker Scout.
The Rebel Medical Frigate was decked out in the usual Alliance Flags and I made a "special" banner this year adding the Alliance symbol to a St. Patrick's day banner.
The lead vehicle was River's Imperial Cruiser (in black) - followed by my Rebel Frigate which was followed by the best ever vehicle...
Darryl's Road Squadron vehicle pulled his trailer with R2-S5 manning his bfg and spinning his dome to the absolute delight of the crowd.
Thank you Darryl for coming all the way down from Wisconsin...you were the obvious hit of the day.
Thanks to all our Rebels...you guys hung by the Frigate and really enforced our "Rebellion" as I hear the crowd often shout..."It's the good guys"!
