    Folks who want to come out and join the 501st Legion at Westshore, University and Gulfview Malls in July need to sign up on the 501st boards for this event. You also need to be sure that you can attend this event. Also let them know what costume you are wearing. For those who are not members of the Rebel Legion lets get your costumed pics and applications sent in ASAP.
    We are trying to get all groups to work together, as it should be, especially for charity events.
    Thanks,
    Marie

    Yes. It would be great to have more ppl there. The more the better I always say. And costumes must be complete, too. With Kaite taken a turn for the worse, this event needs to be a sucess as more ppl will be aware of this and more money can be raised to help find a cure for Cancer.

    So, basically... we have to be a member of one of those two groups and have a "complete" costume to attend? What exactly does "complete" costume mean?

    Is it open to those who are in fanforce and not in one of the other two groups? Or is it exclusive to them?

    Forgive me if I'm asking a billion questions, I'm new to the fanforce and would like to get everything correct.

    Right now yes. The Rebel Legion is the sister group to the 501st stormtroopers. This is what Bert and Leanne were talking about at the meeting at Mike's. We should all be in this together. However; I do not see any reason why fans cannot get dressed up and just come out.I know it took Kevin and myself months to get our costumes together and then we applied without any problems. However; for official costumed events there are definate guidleines.

    I believe as soon as we can get it done. I figure a week before and as long as you are in the application phase you should be able to be there. What a great costume!!! If you want to get together let me know and we can get you registered on their board. Then submit the costume when we get a pic. I have digital camera and all.

    The event is being promoted by the organizer as a "Meet the 501st Legion" event, but the more costumed fans, the better. I'm sure kids would love to meet a Jedi or two as well.

    =D= Now this is a cause an appearance that is very worthy of our attention and participation. It will indeed be a high profile event with 501st being the focal group. Scott has issued us an invite and an opportunity to make a difference in the lives children fighting cancer so I think we should help out in any manner we can with the 501st approval that is. We can play nice with Stormtroopers.

    They will be at Westshore Mall that day from 11am to 1pm then at the University Mall from 3pm to 5pm on July 16th. Lets try and do this friends.

    The time on the poster is incorrect according to Scott. The poster will be fixed before being printed. The time for this event at the University Mall is 2pm-4pm.

    I am a member of all 3 groups now, I just signed up with the 501st florida group and I've been part of the rebel legion and fan force for some time now.

    If its ok I'd like to wear my sniper costume if the 501st has no problem with it????? I have a few pix of it and can send them to the right person if I need to, please let me know who that is so I can do that.

    Or I can wear my new jedi outfit, but would like to wear the sniper outfit I came up with. And I did wear to C3 and had alot of people want my picture with them.

    That's okay with me, I signed up as a RL member and I beleive that some of you got accepted recently, once you did the online application and submitted your costume pics. The 501st works about the same way...just different costumes.

    Please make sure that you contact the Rebel Legion or 501st to have your name put on the list. Or contact Allissa on this board or me and I will give her your name. To my knowlwedge this is a costumed event per the promoter. Please check the other boards and ask to make sure.

    Thanks for all the enthusiasm, guys! I'm sure the event will be a big success.

    I do need to clarify something just so there are no hard feelings later. The promoter is expecting the short list of 501st members as the "official" list, since he has a few items to give us, including lunch. He is not expecting a much larger "official" turnout, so I don't want to surprise or burden him with more people than he budgeted for. So while everyone is welcome to attend, the promoter will not have material for everyone. Also, the space they are setting aside for changing is for those on the 501st list, so please make other changing arrangements. I hope everyone understands. Thank you.
