Hey Fellow BRB...

Just thought I pass this along. If you wanted to make the past Hockey Game for the Fire Antz.. then you don't want to miss this one.

I'll let Bill from the Carolina Garrison fill you in. ----------------------------

Got a call from the team today, and they really want us to rake in some donations for MAW so here's the deal. March 16th will be a dedicated Star Wars night for the hockey team. We will be featured in all of the advertisements they will push out in the paper, radio, Facebook, website, and local TV. They will be donating an authentic jersey signed by everyone on the team, that we will use for a silent auction at our table. If we can get a lot of characters, they will give us TWO jerseys for auction. We will have a donation bucket out as usual, and they will plug that as well in their announcements. They will also rope off an area where people can have their picture taken with us. I'd also like to have someone at the picture station to have a bucket and solicit donations to MAW.

THEY CONSIDER THIS A TEST EVENT TO SEE HOW POPULAR IT WILL BE. If it turns out great, they will have it again next season, and will even make customized Star Wars jerseys for the team to wear that game. This is a potentially big donation opportunity for us, and for the next few years if we can make a good impression. Of course a good impression means having a strong turnout of characters.

With that being said, as with all my events, this event is open to all Rebels and Mercs. I ask that everyone put the word out, do your best to attend this event, and encourage others to attend as well. These events are always fun, and this is a donation gold mine waiting to be tapped.

I am open to suggestions on activities we can put on at the game. They want us to perform on ice during intermissions, and I've done stuff in the past like a lighthearted Jedi duel and chasing down the team mascot, etc. I think it would also be a good opportunity to issue "Imperial Citations", and arrest "violators" who can pay a "fine" to MAW. Please see the citation picture below, and you'll see what I mean. If the pic is too hard to read, send me a PM with your email and I can send you a hi-res image. Basically, troopers will patrol the arena and issue citations for the infractions listed on the citation. Examples of violations are:

-Telling a stormtrooper he's too short to be a stormtrooper
-Any mention of Star Trek
-Unauthorized use of a photographic device
-Questioning the whereabouts of Vader
-Attempting the Jedi mind trick
-Pretending not to see a trooper while casually passing by
(and many more)

I will hand out booklets of these citations to a few troopers, but they will need to be able to see the violation they are checking off. There is no need to write anything down, just check a block, issue a citation, then escort them to the "detention area" where they will post their "fine" and have their picture taken. Wranglers can go out with their trooper and handle the part of issuing the citation while the trooper does the arrest. If you are interested in doing this, please let me know, and try to bring your own wrangler if possible.



So here's what I think we need:

1. Strong turnout of characters. I plan on doing Maul so if there is a Vader that can make it, that would be awesome!

2. I need wranglers and experienced/motivated people to work the table, manage the silent auction (make sure no one steals the jersey), and encourage people to donate to MAW by explaining who we are.

3. Roaming photographers so we have a historical record of the event.

4. Dedicated photographer for the picture taking station (for those who are issued citations and arrested. All others can take pics with their own cameras). Plus one more person with a donation bucket to solicit donations to MAW.

As usual, everyone, including all support personnel and any friends or family that just want to watch the game, are admitted for free. Just let me know how many tickets you need, and I'll square you away. For those with Rebel and Merc connections, please post this event and encourage participation.

WHO: 501st, Rebels, Mercs. C'mon down!

WHAT: Fayetteville FireAntz Hockey Game

WHERE:

Cumberland County Crown Coliseum
1960 Coliseum Drive
Fayetteville, NC

WHEN: Saturday, March 16, 2013. Please be there no later than 5:30 for a pre-troop briefing. I need everyone to understand what we'll be doing. Be suited up by 6:30pm when the doors open. Puck drop is at 7:30pm and we usually leave around the 3rd period between 9 and 10.

HOW: Turn off your targeting computer. Use the force.

WHY: To do what we do best!

ROSTER:

Bill Lane: SL-4821 (Darth Maul)

We have 12 currently signed up on the CG side/501st... and a few tentative. Kwills, Holodoc and I are confirmed for BRB/Rebel Legion. A couple are doing their Jedi on the CG side. Looks to be a good troop. Anyone that is wanting to go, please let me know. This will be one of the biggest events we have done in our area.

Again, if this one is a success, it will only get bigger... and raise more money for Make a Wish.

Thanks all

Worked on the choreography today with Chris and Cory. Chris has been a big help. Think we may actually come up with something that Rebel Legion can be proud of. Did about 2 to 3 hours of training today.


Cool

1 Week and Counting.. 20 BRB and CG total troops signed up for this event. Should be a great event. Practicing today with some music today for the little Lightsaber fight. Wink I hope you can make this event... because we are pouring everything we have, just about, in to this event. This should be a huge successful night for Make a Wish foundation also. Fun night to troop and it greatly benefits the Make a Wish foundation. Can't beat that.

Tomorrow night is the BIG night. Wish us all well.. and hope to have video and photos to report back to you of the event.

Cory, Jane and I need all of your well wishes in hopes that our live action skit of the Mustafar lightsaber duel goes well. I'll be Obi Wan.. Cory is Anakin.. and of course Jane will be rockin her newly approved Mustafar Padme.

Worked really hard on putting this together.. lets hope it all comes together nicely when we go to do it live in the middle of the ice.

Hopefully we will make Chris proud with his instruction and help in putting this saber battle together as well to help all of you glow with the Force... something that the 501st CG and Rebel Legion BRB can be proud of.

Looking forward to it. May the Force be with Us All.

All I can say... is WOW>.. the Star Wars night at the hockey game turned out great. All the preparation that Bill had done to talk to the team etc.. really worked out.

The lightsaber duel turned out great. Made some minor flubs.. but wasn't noticeable.. we made it through. Smile

We had 22 - 24... including those in costume and those that were there as wranglers and camera people.

Again, what a great night. Hope to get the pictures up soon. Susan will get those up for you. She came in her Jedi.

Also had the pleasure of trooping with all the CG guys and gals whom I've really have gotten close to over the last couple of years. It was great to see Kim.. our BRB XO. She came as her Aayla Secura. First time I've seen that one in person.

As always great to see Ryan in his Chewbacca and Chris with his Mando.

Had a great time performing the duel scene with Anakin (Cory) and Miss Padme (Jane). Always great to see you two as well. Thanks in large part to Chris in his guidance.

We wasn't short of Tusken Raiders and Jawas. Kyle and Gene filled the rosters as well as Kyles boys as the Jawas.

I can't tell you enough how everything fell in place nicely.

We had a visit from R2-KT as well. The Jersey went to a boy that was in Make a Wish program.. and survived his terminal illness... so it couldn't go to a better person than right there.

Wish we could have made more for MAW.. but hey its a start. Can only get bigger from this point. Raised 200-300 for Make a Wish.

Pictures and Vids coming soon!!! Thanks all that came. It was great to see everyone there! One of the largest troops I've been in to date.

Hi all,

I had a blast also and though I was chokebait this was one of my favorite troops to do by far!! Kudos to Chad and Cory for their fantastic duel which I had a small part in and for Gene, Kyle, Kim, and Susan for everything. I can't wait to see the pictures and the video.

-Jane
