We had the most RL face characters, I have ever seen!

2 Princess Leias
Padme
Anakin
Obi-Wan
Han Solo
Luke
Mara Jade

We were EPIC!! I got TONS of pics at this event. More so than I have ever gotten in Leia. All the little girls loved it!

Also, the RL images sold more than the 501st!! I got more requests for Yoda, Leia and R2 than any other!!

GO REBELS!!

My first year doing this event, and I look forward to many more. Wanted to spend a little more time in my x-wing now my helmet's almost done, but still managed to get geared up and get some shots in for the rebellion Mr. Green even took some reading promo shots for the library Cool

Was awesome to meet some more members of our weird extended family, and put some faces to people Ive chatted or "talked" to on the boards.

Looking forward to the next one!

Mission Report filed:





It took only two short years and this event outgrew the historic and large innards of the Joliet Public Library - so we took it to the streets. After the City of Joliet found out that Star Wars Day #2 brought over 1,500 people through the doors of the Joliet Main Library last year, they decided that this event had merit.

The City blocked off a street and gave us an entire building across the street from the Library to use for staging and tote storage. They also cooked and served breakfast and lunch for all participants.

Nar Shaddaa Base, The Midwest Garrison, the Midwest Order of The Jedi Assembly and the Midwest R2 Builders were on hand to be the "set decoration", run some of the events, put together a monster display of costumes...
answer questions....

what we are...
and how we do it...

We didn't disappoint...








We ran Imperial Cadet Training on the front lawn...




Operated a Jail and Bail to benefit the Friends of the Library...




Hung out with friends of the Rebellion..





















We also had Klingon's doing the celebration song from the final scenes of ROTJ...

The Library Staff had been busy the last months making a Wampa...






A Trash compactor Dive




Along with many more games and trivia...at last we checked....well over 600 people did the trivia challenge...

The Library staff also repaired and re-set our Cantina bar...
a lot of elbows hit that bar during the day...




But...after the doors closed to the public...
there was a special sparkling grape juice toast to Dave Dorman (who was in attendance all day) for his 25 years as a Star Wars Artist..






Jim Norman - IAM8114 (Emperor of Nar Shaddaa Base) awarded Roger Burns - Youth Services Director/Joliet Public Library with his very own Medal of Yavin for the extraordinary work done by him and his staff...




This was an big event...
a lot of big work...
but also brought big smiles to the people of the area...


Many, many, many more photos:

This was my 3rd yr & it was great fun. Thanks to the library staff who were very helpful. I know when I was told we would be changing across the street, I couldn't quite figure out where but it turned out to be very nice. Also this was my 1st troop since my knee surgery & I found I was very surprised at how I felt during the event. It felt very good. Smile
I'm in process of looking through my photos so I can post a link to them.
