The Rebel Legion's Echo Base attended this years ICON 31 convention in Stony Brook Long Island NY, on Friday March 30th thru Sunday April 1st 2012. This the largest convention on Long Island, it is a fan convention run by fans, for fans and it has a great atmosphere. There was a large turnout for the event, and we had a table in the dealer room. Unfortunately we did not have a changing area, but we made due with the restroom and the space behind the table. We were there in force on Saturday and we escorted Star Wars guests Jeremy Bulloch (Bobba Fett) and Paul Blake (Greedo) to their panels. We also held an hour long panel with the 501st Legion about the groups, to a packed room with some enthusiastic potential members. We took photos with hundreds of guests, and trooped around the con throughout the weekend.

The Rebel Legion's Echo Base members Patrick Delieto (Tusken), Dan King (Admiral Ackbar), Rachel K. (X-Wing), Tom Peterson (Jedi), Daniel Reiser (Jedi), and Sharon Bell-Reiser (Jedi) attended. Dan and Rachel did double duty, and also donned their 501st Legion costumes on Saturday for a few hours.

The 501st Legion's Empire City Garrison was there in force as well with David Braun (TD-6513 / TD), Patrick Delieto (ID-3755), Chris Feehan (TK-6744), Candace Gelfman-Platania (IC-2891), Dan King (TK-6795), Rachel K. (TD-5531), Ron Lares (SL-5928), Lou Platania (BH-6908), Ian Regan (TD-7732), and Mark Rentflejs (TB-8259). Scott Byrne (NER / IC-9946 / Imperial Crew), visiting from the North-East Remnant Garrison, helped out in costume on Saturday as well.

Special thanks to Eddie Lam who helped us out throughout the day Saturday, guiding us around and taking photos. We would also like to thank James Hannon (NER/RL), who came by Saturday and took some video of our panel (Coming Soon). We all had a great time, and hope to do it again next year at the possible new location at Hofstra University.

Looks like a great time and showing. I'm sorry we couldn't make it, but at least the con crud can't be blamed on us this year.
