    According to a story posted recently on TheForce.net the 501st Legion is recognized in the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records as world's largest Star Wars costuming group. Here is what the book says on page 174:

    "This year (2007) is the 10th anniversary of the Star Wars 501st Legion (USA), the world's largest Star Wars costuming group. What was a stormtrooper fan club in 1997 now is 3,300 strong. According to the handbook, members "celebrate the Star Wars movies by wearing costumes and most importantly contribute to the community through charity and volunteer work."

    Congratulations to Albin Johnson and all the members of the Fighting 501st. You make us proud. Check out the TF.n story here...
