OK folks, for those of you that saw the discussion on the MWG boards, we're continuing our part here.

If you haven't: http://midwestgarrison.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=14287&p=225957#p225957

So here's the deal. I am willing to contact the White Sox and Mary Franklin to try and get us an invite. I am not willing to do that if we do not have the members willing to participate in the event.

I've currently had two members contact me about the issue that this is a 501st member only event, one person also stated they won't go regardless of the outcome. The other, Crix, can you even take a day off to go?

I know it sucks that we didn't get our own invite but this is technically an LFL event and if they don't ask us, there's not a lot I can do other than ask to be involved, but I refuse to do that if Rebels aren't going to be willing or able to go because that makes us look unprofessional as a base.

So I know JJ wants in. Brian is willing to come as Solo, but since he's not a member yet, that's kinda iffy if this is an LFL event. So I'm setting up a sign up. If I can get five members to commit to come as Rebels, I will contact them to ask for an invite. If not, then se la vie, you'll still be able to attend as a Rebel if you wish as long as you're a 501st member which really covers most of us anyways.

Lol, I wanted to get Mary's approval just so I can say "shove it" to certain people that think rebel costumes are sub-par.

sorry for the drama folks. not my intention, but if you sneeze over there they freak out..
anyway, I just wanted to know why she stated 501st only
she has that right, but I wanted to know why she choose this event. rebels have been there before.

IMO, aimee has that old school 501st mentality, where the rebels are not equals.

she saids 501st only, but said we can wear rebel if we want and our non duel members can also come... HUH? then why say 501st only? to me its a shot at us and just trying show power over us.. again my opinion.

I wanted to know why we are good enough to help the 501st fill out the spots if they cant, but not good enough for first shot...
I mean its not like we are going to take every spot. we would be lucky if 2 show up.

anyway... I asked why, thats all and moved on

as for me going, that really wasnt my point. I was trying to stick up for the rest of the Rebels that dont have duel membership.

There aren’t that many of us that are RL only. It used to just be Bob Kohn and I, but I think there are a few more now, but not many.

I can’t go, as that weekend will be the weekend I’m at my parents. If it was another weekend I would….

Brian’s post today helps clear a few things up, and seams to be what should have been said from the beginning.

If it would help make the best maximum presentation, why don’t we ask for an invite? Then anyone wearing a rebel costume would need to attend under our invite, and anyone wearing an imperial costume would need to attend under the 501st invite. We’ve done that before for high-profile events. It helps get those that want to attend, a greater opportunity too.

That's the thing. The request has always been from LFL to the 501st, not LFL to the 501st and the RL. While I do agree that the distinction that Aimee makes that 501st members can go in RL costumes but RL only members can't go is silly and I made that point just like you did Dee, there's only a handful of us that aren't dual members. But its still a marquee event and we were not directly invited.

Honestly, while I think like many occasions Aimee could have explained herself better to save us some drama, this is what it is. The RL wasn't invited. Aimee could very well have stated this is Imperials only, I'm sure other Garrisons are doing just that for their StandUp2Cancer events. Its silly, but you also have to remember if she opens the event to any RL member, then she has to open it up to the Mercs as well.

The single most important thing to remember folks is that we're not going to always like the way events are alloted to us by the MWG. Usually its a fine deal, but things could be incredibly worse. Use this as an example, we've come a long long way as a club but we have a lot more to do.

The MWG doesn't HAVE to invite us to any event, never forget that. Its one thing to question things like that, but its another to turn it into a fight. Please remember that, and remember it is my job to talk to them when we've got questions about things like that. I can talk to them, putting them on their guard in full view of the garrison is damaging to our reputation and makes us look bad and ungrateful to the rank and file trooper.

Now what's done is done, lets move on. Who wants to do the Sox game? sign up.

I want to go very baddly, but as with all my troops now a days, I won't know till last min. Plus I am sure I will be on a new bid by then.. so who knows what days off I'll have. Odds are it won't be satudays.

So I am not going to take a spot when I most like won't make it Sad

As a few of my central IL MWG members are going, I was planning on carpooling with them up to this event. As one of the few RL only members (working on 501st atm), I was kind of disappointed to see that it was 501st only. I am going to sign up to go and hope that we get a few more rebels to possibly get our own invite. Oh and one more thing...REBELS!!!

Frankly...
I am "meh" on the whole thing...
if they want us...
great...
if they don't want us...
so be it...
I don't want to go anywhere if I am not wanted...
period...
but..
at the end of the day...
if they come up short for the gig...I don't want to hear..
"ok...we're desperate.....RL is invited"

Laughing


I went to the Sox game the first year...but I didn't go to the game last year cuz my costumes don't add much to the event and I am not that big of a baseball fan...so...
it got kinda boring for me...
my attention span isn't the greatest...

Very Happy
