    Hey guys,

    I had no idea there was a Fan Force unit up here! Those of us on the Dark side had out first trooping event Yesterday. IT was as Senshi-Con at UAA here in Anchorage, we could have really used the help getting the word out about our respective groops.

    Here is our website: www.AKOutpost.com

    Joe K. TC-1244, 501st.

    Those of us that made the event:

    Wow thats pretty awesome! I didnt know there was a 501st detatchment up here either. Ive been interested in trooping before, I just didnt know that we actually had people in the 501st up here. We definately need to get together for future events!

    I'm a quarter of the way across the planet...but like everyone else, I had no clue that there was a 501st detachment up there, though I'm not surprised. There's even one down here in north Louisiana.

    I avoided Senshi-Con like the plague. The girl who helped set it up is in my Japanese class, and she's uber-die-hard anime fanatic. So much that she insists on going by an anime character's name. Also, I'm not into anime or manga whatsoever.

    But that shouldn't stop other people from having fun. =P

    Our Outpost is rather new, we were only made offical right before Christmas. THere is even 501st in Saudi Arabia.

    We caught some flack at the Con, but dished it right back. The girl that organized it seemed cool but those people are really into Anime. I did not get alot fo what was going on sometimes, but what ever, I was happy to be back in armor.

    Don't worry we did push Fan Force as well, one of our mebers has small kids and they were dressed as padawans and we had some FX sabers to play with too.

    We definatly need to work together for Aurora Con.

    Only info I have is that it is July 14th. We are going to push to have at least two new members, both Clones and out Tusken is going to convert to a Snowtrooper. AT least with the Clone, when you ad jedi it we can go wither way with it.

    Hey guys I am in touch with SEVERAL people/Groups regarding troops, (I am the XO for the Alaskan Outpost of the 501st my name is Rebecca)

    I have a few leads for things like make a wish foundation, Lung association (for thier summer asthma camp), and even things like the boy scouts blue and gold banquets. I am getting ready to contact toys for tots, and extend an offer for help this winter with toy drives. and I am also working on getting our foot in the door with the salvation army bell ringing (I would LOVE to go to the fifth ave mall on the glass sky walk-I think it would just look cool with all of us in cotume standing up there!) We are getting aurora con worked outs as we speak. and I am under the understaning that there are severl events in the summer that we can look at combining forces and doing!

    Pretty much gotta make them yourself. The Costuming and Props board is helpful. I guess this gives me more inspiration to finish my Mandalorian costume haha! Ive actually wanted to buy some stormtrooper armor, but its too much for my poor self...

    The MS walk sounds pretty good as long as I dont end up having something going on that day.

    I am from Juneau and working to join the Ak Outpost with a costume that I am making (AT AT Driver). I am hoping o join before July so that I can walk in the parade here. Although I hear Anch. will be having their members in a parade as well. For those looking to make costumes, ebay has some stuff that could be useful. Type in Star Wars armor or Star Wars props and you get a few things. Richsarmor.com could also help those trying to make a costume. I am almost done. I need to find gloves fo my costume and boots as well.

    Hope to see more join. :)

    I'd like to participate in some of these events in Anchorage lol, I was totally unaware.

    Anyway, next time they occur then posting some sort of alert on the forums would help. I'm ready to defend my title as the biggest star wars nerd in alaska!
