Great pics everyone thanks for posting and sharing. I have to live vicariously through you all for the time being. Everytime there is and event I am either working or engaged in some family obligations.

Well the Philadelphia event was nothing less then fun!!! I'll try to get photos up when I get some. We even had a Chewie flown in to help out and he is probably the same guy as in the photos that Mary Alice posted. Good guy and excellent costume, my garrison mates and I were blown away.



I did my part for both sides as being a Jawa but the rest of the folks were from my garrison, Carida.



It was a PR event and not a call center visit. 12 hours of trooping and my feet are killing me but it was sooooo worth it.





I hope everyone has a good time with these events as I did in Philly today. Smile

A huge thanks to RJ for coordinating all the NYC area Cinemax promos, and trooping almost evey one!

Wow, it looks like you had better "Jedi" for the training section at Philly.  Some of the one's they hired for NYC event were so-so, and they certainly were not doing anything like this.

Just in case you don't have the song burned into you head from hearing it a zillion times at the Cinemax Jedi Training promo: Nerf Herder Music Video . And you can enter the contest if you make your own video.

Not THAT video!

I was lucky that I was only at GCT for a few hours and not all day, that song was on every other minute I think.

Message from Mark Fordham 501st LCO :



Once again I'd like to thank everyone who participated in these Cinemax events. I know there were a few kinks in the works here and there, but you all made the best of it like the true troopers that you are. Your dedication was obviously appreciated, and this morning I received confirmation that a donation was indeed made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for...$10,000!!! I was astounded at the amount and hope that you are likewise pleased and that it makes up for any inconveniences endured along the way.


I had asked for charities of choice from each participating unit, including the Rebel Legion and Jedi Assembly, but Cinemax indicated it was their preference to make out just one check to one charity. The majority of the charity-of-choice responses I received were for Make-A-Wish, so that was the charity I gave them.

Again, thanks to all who helped bring this donation to fruition!


Mark Fordham 501st LCO
