This weekend I went to a children's book show with my daughter at
UConn. Matthew Reinhardt was there, and he's a huge Star Wars and
Transformers fan. He just finished this book:

Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy
http://www.starwars.com/eu/lit/ref/news20070509.html




It's a first edition. So I got a copy signed but not
personalized and picture of him signing it. He wrote "May the force
be with you" and sketched a quick Darth Vader.



I was thinking that this could be donated by the base to a raffle or
auction at some future Alderan event, maybe even this weekend. What
are your thoughts?

My son loves that pop-up book - it is incredible.
It would make an awesome raffle prize.

I couldn't stay very long and I had my 4yo with me--her first show. So I donated the book to the Fan Force's Cam Neely Fund drive since they already had several raffles going and the tickets and buckets to support another raffle prize.

I put an Alderaan Base card (thanks Justin) with the book to promote the organization, but the real purpose is that the book finds a home and helps raise money for a worthy cause. And since the book was such a recent release, I thought it would be a bigger draw at this show instead of saving it for a later show.

But, I'm going to keep my eyes open for something just as cool for NY ComicCon and DragonCon as well. And I really hope I can do more "hanging out" with you guys at the next event.

Ray Park, Jeremy Bulloch, and Joe Corroney were guests at this year's "SUPERMEGAFEST" convention which is held yearly in Framigham, Massachusetts .Over the weekend of Nov 17-18th,2007, members of Alderaan Base were at the convention, spreading word of our rebel costume group and placing smiles on fans young and old alike. Over the course of the weekend, members, worked together with the New England Garrision of the 501st, in efforts to raise money for the Jimmy Fund.
We had a fun time, working with member of the 501st to help raise awareness, and funds for THE JIMMY FUND. Total raised for the group by contributions for photos with the NEG's Jabba the Hutt, and members in costume was a staggering $1700.00+ Shocked Very Happy





Alderaan Base inducted Joe Corroney as a Honorary member of the Rebel Legion, for his artistic contributions to the "STAR WARS" legacy.
All three guests were also inducted as Honorary members of Alderaan Base. Jeremy was inducted as a "HONORARY PILOT" for his work as a Alderaan pilot in SW:ROTS.





Special Thanks go out to New England Garrision of the 501st for yet another successful convention outing with our many friends.
