Last year I posted an invitation for all surrounding Bases to join in the fun of this all day event at the Joliet Public Library in Joliet IL.


This year, we are expanding the event to include two venues - both the Joliet Library and the Joliet Historic Museum.


Please let me know if you are interested and I have posted below some photos of our event last year to give you an idea. I have also posted a few photos of the space that the Rebels will likely occupy.










Some of last year's display:














There are lots of games for the kids like the Trash Compactor Dive:




Cut the arm off the Wampa:




Cadet Training:








and many more games and things like a "tattoo parlor".




There were LOTS of costumes:







and

Artists like Dave Dorman shown in this photo of our "after party" at the full sized Cantina Bar:











So...if any of you are interested in joining in....
please let me know...


Thanks in advance!

Trying to make sure this event stays on your radar.

We had our second planning meeting yesterday with the Joliet Library, the Joliet Historical Musuem, City of Joliet Chamber of Commerce and the Joliet Police Department.

Planning is going very well and by next month's meeting we should know a lot more.

We will have an entire street blocked off.

We will have SW artist Dave Dorman back along with other artists (I have also asked Mikey Babinski to appear-he was one of the artists for our RL Sketch Card series and lives in Illinois).

Several of the R2 Builders have expressed a desire to come.

Last year over 3,000 people attended...this year estimates are for over 4,000.

The Rebel Base will be the Joliet Historical Museum and we are talking about near the end of the event we will have Rebels return to the Rebel Base (the Museum) and Imperials to the Imperial Base (the Library) for group photos at each "Base"...
then Rebels and Imperials will leave their "Bases" for the grand finale "face off" on Clinton Street and then have one large group photo.

As always, the Rebellion is outnumbered, but we do plan on having a strong presence and a great display at the Historical Musuem along with lightsaber demos by two of NSB life long swordsman.

I hope you consider this event when planning your summer.
