    If you still haven't seen ROTS enough times yet or you have never seen a Star Wars movie at a drive-in, here's your chance! Troops from Indiana's own Bloodfin Garrison will be invading the Tibbs Drive-in on Saturday, 28 May 2005!
    I'm not sure that any other 501st Garrison has ever "Trooped" a drive-in before so this may be yet another first for the Bloodfin Garrison.

    The Tibbs DI is one of the oldest still operating in Indiana and with the state going on "Daylight Savings Time" there is a very good chance that this could be the theaters last year so here is a chance for us to be a small part of Indiana history. There are very few Drive-ins still open in the United States, let alone Indiana, and every year there tend to be fewer left operating so this really may be a last chance to experience a bit of the past before it's gone for good. Plus with this being the last Star Wars movie, I really doubt that an event like this will ever happen again.

    If you have never been to a Drive-in to see a movie, go on a date or whatever, it's really a pretty cool time plus it's a great way to see a movie with the whole family.

    My thanks for the 501st members who showed up. My wife and I invited some friends along who had never heard of the 501st Bloodfin. They were just as overjoyed as their childrern to see and meet you guys. I have only met 1 member who was anything less than a class act. Thanks for making my 4th view of RotS even more enjoyable!

    Tr-1032 I do not want to assume, but were you the Royal guardsman that was present?

    I have pictures for you guys and gals, but need an email address to forward them too. The 501st site is not replete w/ data.
