Event Name: Max & Jake’s Big Race
Event Date: 02/26/2012
Point of Contact: Ben T.

Event Rundown: This was the 5th annual event. Our changing tent was in a great location located right in the middle of everything. The troops positioned themselves around the Start/Finish line to greet the runners and walkers. After the race was over, the troopers mingled with the crowd for photo ops, listened to live music and were even involved in a juggling act. The event coordinators couldn’t have been more happy with our presence at their event and was told that they would love for us to come back again and again.

Event Name: Franklin Elementary School Assembly for Jeffrey Hughes
Event Date: 02/24/2012
Point of Contact: Scott A./Shawn C.

Event Rundown: Jeffrey Hughes , Jr. is a cancer fighter preparing to leave for hospital in New York to engage in the next stage of his fight; we were privileged to give him a first-class send-off in front of friends and family and the entire student body of Franklin Elementary the day before his departure.

Reaching the site before the school day began, we took special care to avoid discovery from the arriving students. We were sequestered in Room 13, which caused a bit of laughter when the room’s occupying teacher checked in to drop her stuff off for the day and found a few nearly-naked costumers. Everyone was quite purposeful of task (though finding it difficult to remain hidden from the students peering in windows) and we were ready to go in no time, I framed/matted a version of Dean Amstutz’ great SCG “Honorary Member” Certificate, the Eisenmanns brought a nicely-framed EP I 3D “Translight” theater poster (and extras for the rest of us!) and Manuel created an excellent (and perfectly-sized!) “Honorary Trooper” embroidered hoodie as gifts for Jeffrey. After meeting parents Jeff and Annie and sponsoring teachers Kurt and JC, we got our cue to join the outdoor assembly. Marching out to the playground to the usual Imperial theme, we parted the students and their parents to arrive in the center of the entire assembled school.

Personally, this is as close as it gets for me to a perfect event. In and out with little difficulty, an appreciative contact and crowd, all in the service of a deserving boy with a lot to fight for. I’m fortunate to have done many things in costume and the service of LFL and FOX- none of them, as amazing and as dear as I might hold them, can ever compare to something like this. It reinforces why we do this, and why it is that I am always so humbled to serve alongside you all both here in the 501st and in the Rebel Legion. Congratulations on a job well done!

Event Name: Cartoon Network “Hall of Game” Awards
Event Date: 02/18/2012
Point of Contact: Online:Lesley F./Scott A. Onsite:Nick S.

Event Rundown: Cartoon Networks answer to the kids choice awards but for athletes. They wanted us for some background segments and to be “security” on the red carpet. They had us patting down the athletes for contraband and doing the usual photo op with the guests. We had a blast.
