After much thought, I wanted you all to know that I won't be running for CO next term. As much as I would love to run for office again, I don't think it would be wise for me to do so. I have a lump in my throat while typing this message to you all, and it is very difficult for me to say, but I think it's for the best. Crying or Very sad It's just been a very difficult year for me and my family with one bad thing happening after another, and it has just been a struggle to keep up with my duties as Bespin CO. I think it would be best to have someone who can keep up with the tasks that are necessary to keep a successful base up and running. I would though, like to finish out my term as CO, as I really enjoy the responsibility and hard work that goes into it.

I am extremely proud of how our little base has turned out to be. We wouldn't have gotten here if it weren't for everyone doing such a fantastic job. The number of members that have joined in the last year or so have just jumped leaps and bounds. You all do such a wonderful job keeping up with your costumes, creating new costumes and most importantly getting out there trooping and having fun. And that's one thing I haven't been able to do in quite a while is to be out there with you guys and trooping. I miss it so much! Hopefully before the year is done I will be able to put in a few more troops. DragonCon is coming up, and I'll be there for that, and then there is the annual Toys For Tots and Atlanta Christmas Parade that I plan on trooping.

So keep in mind someone who you'd like to nominate next term for CO. I am confidant that one of our members out there will make a great CO for Bespin Base.

It has been my absolute pleasure working with and for you guys here in Bespin Base. And I am proud to say that I did the best job that I could do while CO for Bespin Base. You guys are the best!!!

I'm sorry to read this, Daphne. Taking on a command position is a lot of responsibility, but we need to remember that our real lives come first. You've been an excellent CO and I'm happy to have been under your leadership for this past year. The Base has grown under your leadership and I hope it will continue to do so into the next year.

Thanks again for your service, and I can't wait to troop with you soon Very Happy

On behalf of the Corellian Base we salute you my sister. As your friend and someone who has trooped with you several times I think you handled being a commanding officer with dignity and respect. You, did an awesome job my friend and Bespin is a great base because of your leadership.

Daph, I was proud to have you as my XO and prouder still of the job you did as CO. Leading a base isn't easy, there are many things that go on "behind the scenes" that most members don't know about.

I'll save you a seat by the pool at the COs Retirement Home. Cool

Beth

Daphne,

I'm so sorry it's been such a tough year. I hope things get better... LOTS better.... and I hope to see you out trooping more... I miss you!

Thanks for your service... not just this year, but the past years as XO. I know it's a lot of hard work, and most of it is "behind the scenes". Thanks for your service to us in Bespin and to RL as a whole. Smile

Look forward to seeing you next weekend at D*C.

Blessings,
Karyn
