Hey Everyone,


Alot of you already know me, both personally, and on various forums/yahoo groups, but for those who do not, I figured I'd introduce myself.  (For those who do know me, you can probably skim through most of this.. lol)


My name is Dion Rupa.  Alot of folks know me as one of the guys who started the 501st's Northeast Remnant, a garrison which operates in the NY/NJ area.  I am also the XO of the NER and have been since it's birth, which was two years ago.  Before the NER came into existance I was also the PR Officer for another garrison as well.  The NER Prides itself on having crossover members of all local fangroups in SW Fandom Smile


Alot of folks were shocked to learn that I joined the Rebel Legion.   I've been a longtime member of the 501st now for about five years now.   I love the 501st with a passion.  It's given me alot of great, wonderful friends, and has even made me so lucky to meet the love of my life, my wife, Tanya (also a member of the RL). 


During that time, I've had wonderful opportunities to work with various fanforce chapters (MEPA, NJO, Philly), as well as members of Echo Base.   With any event I put together, I've always tried to include everyone.  It's always a wonderful thing when you have folks from every club at an event. 


Both Ed and Katie are close friends of mine.  When Ed got bumped up to LCO, Katie was looking for an XO.  To be honest, I jumped at the chance to help out, because it's something I enjoy doing very much.    I really look foward to helping Katie with Echo Base and forming more friendships with everyone.   Smile


If anyone has any questions for me, please feel free to ask Smile

I would like to be the first to congratulate Dion on being appointed XO. Anytime I send emails to the local 501st command to inquire about and/or coordinate events; the first response is always from Dion (even when he a wedding in it's final planning stages). Dion, as a 501st XO is always interested in working with Rebel Legion and having him as Echo Base XO will only strengthen the relationship between the two groups.


Again congratulations Dion.


Regards,


Mary Alice Ladd

DION!!!  Or is that Mr Tanya Rupa now.   I can personally say Dion totally rocks.  It will be so awesome that he's in Echo Base and I can totally tell this base will really begin to take off.  I don't know how many times the NER had an invitation to an event and Dion was always seeing if they wanted rebels to appear.  He's been working hard for us even before he was he so you know he's going to kick some major league butt now that he's official.

Dion,


Congratulations on your appointment.


You still suck!



You are fast becoming the supreme XO (NER, Echo, SG-2).  If you get two more XO slots you'll qualify for a free set of steak knives.  lol


Congrats bro!!!

LOL Too Funny Joe Smile


Actually, I am no longer XO of SG-2.  I had to relinquish that position, so that I could head up my own Team Smile  "The Order of the Ori" Smile  So that makes me a CO, in that case Smile


I'm just happy that I have time again to devote to fandom.  For the past year, I felt, and justifably so, that my attention was focused on the wedding.
