Saturday May 14th, 2011, 9:00 PM.

Hard Rock Café, Buenos Aires Autonomous District, Argentina.

Diego Arevalo (the.rebel.agent), José Hermosa (Joe Solo), Christian Tovar (Arie Tov), Rebeca Ales (queen.amidala), Fernando de Dios (Tsai-Fer Koz), Yanina Castro (Yaina Khas-thró) , Cristian Silva (Rogue Leader 16), Franco Celentano (Chosen.one), Kevin Cohen (Keven Skywaker), Victor Teran (Ensamble), Gerardo Perez Palacios (Tyvokka), Barbara Viera (Princess Arcadia), David Venegas (Daraf Bravestar), Elizabeth Ortiz (Allahsafir).

On May 14th, the Cruz del Sur Outpost’s First Year Celebration took place. It was also its recognition as the Rebel Legion’s true representative group in Argentina.

After a month of previous planning, the members of the local Rebel Legion group presented the “homage cake”, prepared the souvenirs and different surprises for the dinner’s attendants.

The Outpost Ladies were present too, dressed for the occasion.

After the words of gratitude from the CO to the members of the Outpost for a fruitful year of work, and the welcoming of the accompanying people, the dinner and the party began.

During the evening, there was a raffle of posters, action figures, comics and many other objects (donated by the Outpost members) for the more than 30 people present to celebrate the anniversary.

There was also a moment to pay homage to the creator of the Star Wars saga, because of the coincidence of the date chosen for the party with George Lucas’ birthday.

Between appetizers and drinks, a video was projected, showcasing the main activities and events the Outpost members (along with members of the 501st, Mandalorian Mercs and Star Fans, a local Star Wars fan group) were part of.

In order to honour the Rebel members, the CO, together with queen.amidala (wearing a dress similar to the one worn by Princess Leia at the Yavin Ceremony), handed commemorative medals, just like the ones given to the Rebel heroes at the end of Episode IV.

(First Anniversary - In Acknowledgement for the Services offered to the Republic – May 14th, 2011)

On queen.amidala and Yaina Khas-Thró’s own initiative, special awards were given to the people who were the ones that established the foundations of Star Wars fandom and the Rebel Legion in Argentina: José Hermosa (first local member to join the Rebel Legion), Diego Arévalo (current CO) and Christian Tovar (current XO).

After the dinner and the toast, the present members of the Cruz del Sur Outpost blew the candle of the anniversary cake…

…as well as the cake from members of our “sister organizations”: the 501st and Mandalorian Mercs.

After the ceremony and close to 2:00 AM, the CO thanked the attendants again: friends from Star Fans, Mandalorian Mercs and the 501st; people who, together with the Cruz del Sur Outpost’s Legionaires made the party of the First Year of the Rebel Legion’s presence in Argentina a true celebration of friendship through their passion for Star Wars.

May the Force be with you… always.

Yanina Castro (Yaina Khas-thró)
Translation Jose Hermosa (Joe Solo)
