The Cleveland contingent of Midwest Base is proud to be participating in the Bowl For Kids' Sake fundraising event benefiting Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland. This marks the fourth year in a row we have been involved with this outstanding charity event. 

This year, PrincessLeia92 has taken over command of Rebel Strike Team. Joining her are a number of Midwest Base members and (under 1Cool friends from The Jedi Knights of Cleveland, who all want to help support the kids of northeast Ohio. We're scheduled to bowl on Saturday, May 6th. For a link to our event website, visit:

Saturday, March 18th we are hosting a fundraiser at Lazer Xtreme (a local laser tag place) where we, along with members of Ohio Garrison are going to suit up in costume NOON-10pm and play laser tag with the customers. Lazer Xtreme donates a part of the proceeds to our bowling team. We've got a good bunch of troopers (any of you guys from Midwest garrison are welcome to come in for the day) but we could use a couple Rebel characters (no jedi with blasters..."how uncivilized" ): Han, Luke, Leia, Rebel Fleet Troopers, Rebel pilots...you get the idea!

Well, I am ONLY a Jedi!  And I don't think my daughter's Greedo costume will fit me. LOL.  Can we still come and help out?

Actually, i was hoping most of the members of Rebel Strike Team would be there (costume or not) to help out with the event. The money we raise is getting split between the bowlers...so only seems fair. 


Only reason I mentioned no jedi with blasters was that we had someone last year wear one...and even the guests were commenting on how "odd" it looked. Jedi can work the front entrance and assist with the event no problem.

Okeeday!    Very fair, just wanted to double check.  I have it marked on the calendar-in ink.

The owners of Lazer Xtreme really want to play up the SW aspect of the day. i already traded emails with DarthMisty and she's gonna not only bring the Leia...but more then likely host the pre-mission briefings "in character"

Just repeating what Krash posted . . . I'm in for lazer tag fun.  I'll wear the Death Star dress, if anyone wants to play any "save the pricess" games.  Can't wait!

Based on posts here and on the JKOC boards, we've got a good number of people to help with this event. And while we are still gonna go with the "no jedi/blasters" rule, there has been a recent development where we can use a pair of Jedi to play a more active role in some of the games. PM me for details.

Without making this sound like an Oscar acceptance speech, I'll summerize and say THANK YOU to everyone who made this day happen. From PrincessLeia92 and the rest of Rebel Strike Team...to Coyote and all the guys from Ohio Garrison and Rebel Legion who volunteered to spend a VERY LONG day serving as target practice for kids...to Jim and the folks at Lazer Xtreme, for allowing us to take over their facilities and do some real good for BBBS-Greater Cleveland.

And for the record, this event raised $2,450.00 for our "Bowl For Kids' Sake" team! Which (to date) is the most we have ever raised for any JKOC charity event.

What makes these events amazing is the collaberative way we come together. Imperial or Rebel, costumer or not...this was a "calling all hands" type of event, and ya'll answered the call to action beautifully. Whether you suited up and played round after round of laser tag, or donated stuff for the door prize table, or worked on the support crew...this was a purely team effort. If the best I could do to express my gratitude was ask Jim to let us play a couple rounds of lasertag (just us) then I hope everyone had fun!

((music))

There's the orchestra telling me my time is up...thanks guys, this event rocked, because you guys ROCK!

Can I get an Oscar for My DDR in armor performance?  Or at least my out of armor performance?   Or how about for the pilot costumes?

Pictures from the Bowl For Kids' Sake event (laser tag was our major fundraiser for the team)


With some last minute donations left to be turned in, the 2006 edition of Rebel Strike Team has raised $2,731 for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland. This is the most money ever raised by us here at The Jedi Knights of Cleveland for a local charity.
