Cast of Star Wars Resistance will be joining us including: 

Christopher Sean (Kazuda), 

Suzie Mcgrath (Tam) 

Scott Lawrence (Jarek)

They will be in attendance in the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Star Wars area. Proceeds from the sale of their autographs and photo ops will go directly to the Children’s Hospital.

This is the area all of us will be in this year, 400 sq.ft. of Star Wars goodness, fantastic opportunity to have extra displays, games, and activities. 

 

 

Passes will be provided to approved Legion members only and trooping in a Legion approved costume or working the booth for at least 3 hours will be required to receive a pass. Not trying to be a jerk but, we had too many passes given out to people who either did not troop or were not even members. This was noticed by the organizers of the event. We cannot abuse the privilege we are given, or we will stop getting passes altogether for events like this. I do not want to have to do a signup sheet for this event if not necessary (they are rarely followed anyway), so please just do your part and don’t leave some of your fellow Legion brothers and sisters doing all the work. If you do not plan to suit up or work the booth, then please just buy a ticket. Please post below if you plan to attend, and whether you will be suiting up, or working the table, and what days.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

 

Saturday night we will also organize a group dinner at a nearby restaurant. 

 

Also if able please stick around after the con closes on Sunday to help Don load the tank, it’s a real pain to do it with just 3 people
