To all members of the Arkansas Fan Force, whether you costume or not. Come February, I will be taking over the reins of Squad Leader for the Arkansas Squad of the 501st/Star Garrison. I won't dredge up anything that has occured in the past, and that is why I am posting this. There are a lot of challenges that I will be facing this year being Squad Leader, and I already have a few things on my plate. I wanted to address all members here that it is my intention to continue fostering good relations between the Fan Force and the 501st. We're all in this for our love of Star Wars and for the fun we have. As long as we try our best to present a united front, the nay sayers will hopefully go away. On that note, I do realize that it's impossible to please everyone all the time. It's unfortunate, but it's reality. I can only do my best with what I have. On closing, I look forward to working with the local Fan Force members at events when they come around. One of my goals, is to hopefully focus on more charitable events here in Arkansas such as Big Brother, Make-A-Wish, Ronald McDonal House, etc etc. Should there be a problem that someone has with a member or members of the Squad, please contact me so the situation can be addressed. I can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone. Here's to a great 2008!
