Endor Base, we need your help!

The All Wings Report In podcast wants to start spotlighting our various bases to highlight the work and events each base takes part in. If you could, let us know here what are a couple of your "signature events". The events that really bring out the largest number of members, from your base and abroad. Ones that are known locally and nationally. Ones where your base really steps up and makes a positive presence for the Rebel Legion. You know what I mean?

We want stats! What's your current active membership?

What face characters are in your roster? Do you have one of each of the Big Three? Do you have five Anakins who submit to a ritual kuma te fight to see who appears and which events?

What costume has the largest number represented? Do you have enough pilots to recreate the Battle of Yavin, or enough Rebel Commandos to take over a fortified bunker and hold it indefinitely?

What date were your base and detachment groups formed? Be as exact as possible, but even giving us month and year can help us congratulate your anniversary.

We want to talk about you, and your segment of this wonderful Legion we belong to. So let us know here and Erich and I can start compiling data!

Finally, we need your voices to help us make All Wings Report In truly "podcast of the Legion". At the beginning of every show, we take three "Standing-By Bumpers" from our list and included them in our opening. We're starting to run low, and know we have a lot of Bases, Squads, Squadrons, Temples, Delegations, Command Posts, and Clans out there that we'd love to get into our rotation!

It's real easy to submit a bumper; just call the show at 781-609-SAGA and say "<your base or local detachment group name>, Standing By!" So, Endor Base Standing By! Corsair Squadron, Standing By! Delegation of Theed, Standing by! Skywalker Temple, Standing By! Someone, call ‘em in!

(Oh, and please, be a member of the Base/Detachment when you call it in. It’s only fair.)

Be sure to leave your name as well, and send us an email to podcast@rebellegion.com and let us know you did. We'll be entering your name into a monthly drawing for an All Wings Report In patch starting in June.

That's it! We thank you for your assistance in this project, and in helping us showcase the great work your base is doing for our Legion.

Signature Events:
WonderCon with our joint 501st/Rebel Legion dinner used to be our largest convention event which drew people in from several States. We are hoping that the convention will come back to Northern California. Word has it we may be getting WonderCon back in the fall rather than the spring, as the spring date for WonderCon has shifted to Southern California.

Some of our other notable annual events are the Marin County Fair 4th of July weekend, where we share an exhibition area with the 501st Golden Gate Garrison for a unified "Star Wars" presence and character photo ops throughout all days of the fair. (Photos from 2011 can be found here: http://endorbase.org/photos-2011.html)

One of our annual televised events is the Oakland Holiday Parade with the 501st Golden Gate Garrison. We have also enjoyed participating in the Giants and Oakland Athletics "Star Wars" days in 2011 and 2012. We hope they'll have us back in 2013!

Our base has also been honored to have been invited to Lucasfilm's San Francisco Letterman Digital Arts center campus to lend a hand with a few Clone Wars Screenings. The most notable was the Boys and Girls club charity screening in 2010 which was attended by George Lucas, as well as the cast and crew of Clone Wars. (photo links on this page: http://endorbase.org/photos-2010.html)

The next big event we are gearing up for is Star Wars Where Science Meets Imagination at the San Jose Tech museum. This is the final stop for the exhibit and it will be here for 4 months starting October 19, 2013 - Sunday, February 23, 2014 https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=591458020866797&set=pb.123560980989839.-2207520000.1365564328&type=3&theater

64

What face characters are in your roster? Do you have one of each of the Big Three? Do you have five Anakins who submit to a ritual kuma te fight to see who appears and which events?
We have a variety of characters from Original Trilogy, Prequels, Clone Wars, Expanded Universe novels, comics, video games, etc. Here is a run down: Han Solo, Princess Leia, Padme Amidala, Luke Skywalker, Anakin, Satele Shan, Ben Kenobi, Obi Wan Kenobi, Aayla Secura, Admiral Ackbar, Maris Brood, Oola, Duchess Satine, Bultar Swan, Quinlan Vos, Shado Vao, Astraal Vao, Visas Marr, Mara Jade, and Rebel Pilot Dorovio Bold! Yes, we have quite a variety! Luckily our Anakins, Leias, etc never have to fight to attend an event - we are all friends so an event is never worth fighting over when there is usually room for everyone to attend. Our members usually have a variety of costumes to choose from so they they share in the honor of playing Anakin at different events, and wear their Generic Jedi or other character costumes when there can only be one Anakin.

What costume has the largest number represented? Do you have enough pilots to recreate the Battle of Yavin, or enough Rebel Commandos to take over a fortified bunker and hold it indefinitely?

I think our base members focus on variety and costumes that personally appeal to them, over looking for an army of one costume. That said, Jedi costumes make up the largest category in our base. One reason for this, we were often asked specifically for "Jedi" for many Clone Wars related events. So over the years, many of our members added Jedi costumes to their wardrobe. Even our latest event at the Tech Museum for Star Wars where Science Meets imagination requested a large group of Jedi, so many of our members switched from of their Pilot, Royalty, and trooper costumes to their Jedi costumes to meet the needs of the press event.

What date were your base and detachment groups formed? Be as exact as possible, but even giving us month and year can help us congratulate your anniversary.

Endor Base

Creation - Closest post I see to us being approved as a base is October 2002. May have been earlier but it seems things were running off an EZboard and all that info is gone from what I see.

Corsair Squadron - May 2008
Delegation of Theed - January 3, 2008
Skywalker Temple - unclear. The posts before 2008 do not exist in that forum, yet a post in delegation of Theed in Dec 2007 I noted we have Jedi temple. So rough guess is later part of 2007?
