Way the event is connected to Star Wars: It's a Sci Fi Convention!

Will there be a place for troopers to change? Private Rooms or The Hotel Restrooms

Will there be a secure place for troopers to store their storage tubs while trooping the event? Can be arranged with private room holders or stowed in vehicles.

Will family/friends be allowed to attend the event? Yes

Are cameras allowed and can we take pictures at the event? Yes

Are weapons allowed on the costumes? Yes

Is there a special place to park at the event? Does parking cost? The hotel has ample parking available in its parking lot. The Green Mill restaurant adjacent to the hotel also has additional parking as well.

If appropriate, can we have a table with flyers and information about the Rebel Legion/Dantooine Base? Yes

Are 501st/Jedi Assembly/FanForce costumed members requested too? 501st will have their own table. Other groups can email guests@encounterscon.com to arrange for their own tables

How many costumed members are requested? The More the Merrier!

Will lodging be provided by the local troopers for garrison members travelling a great distance? The con is at Holiday Inn. You can book your room at the special con rate by going here: http://www.holidayinn.com/hotels/us/en/wichita/ictks/hoteldetail?groupCode=SFI . If crash space is needed contact a local trooper.

Additional information or comments: This is the First year for this con & they have Tom Cane coming down.

had to wear my 70th shirt in the pics on Sunday as my 2 generic SW shirts were dirty from the other 2 days. Very Happy Tusken Raid

Steven Blowers, I have seen it a couple of time from pictures on facebook, I think its not up to CRL standards yet to submit. I can't be sure but I think I heard he is using like a costume base vest right now, but I know it looks like its close to be being done.
