Hello there,Skip here.I just got back from trooping in atlanta with the 501st and wanted to post here.We had a great time down there and had around 30 troopers.We had bob "vader painter" and lots of troopers,biker scouts ,tie pilots and imperial officers.I hope we can organize some great events here soon.ill let everyone know when the parade site has pics of it. Ive just recently joined up with you guys although ive been trooping alone.I look forward to meeting everyone soon as i plan on coming to the next meeting. Is there anyone here that is a "vader"?im thinking of making a vader costume but if someone is already vader then i may not. I would also like to know if there is anyone up on the north side?it appears that most of you are around coolsprings and im in Gallatin / hendersonville.Is there anyone planning on going to the sci-fi convention in memphis this weekend? I will be in memphis but i dont know if i will be there if no-one else is. c-ya later everyone. Skip C. "armored royal guard"
