    Census now live
  17. Heads up it's Census time. If you're a 501st member and you have never registered on the Legion boards you will need to do that to fill out the census. It is required by each member (you can do it!) Census can be completed at: https://www.501st.com/memberDB/census.php Please note that Dragon Con does not count as an official troop unless you volunteered to work the table or marched in the parade as part of the 501st. If you're seeing this post and not the one in the 501st Only section, that means I haven't heard from you to get your access sorted - shoot me a PM if you're an official member and you're missing access to the rest of the MSG boards.

This year we've decided to partner with Children's Hospital to raise money. We have numerous cosplayers in attendance, specialty vehicles and food. Referred by: A Cosplay member who is attending this event. My name is John R. Hickman, and I am one of the managers of the UGO located at 4225 Chapman Highway. I am contacting you to see if you'd be interested in attending an event I'm hosting on Saturday September 28, 2019 from 9am-1pm. This event will be held at our location on Chapman Highway in Knoxville Tennessee 37290. This event is held annually to give back to our great community, but this year is even more important because I have partnered with the Children's Hospital to help raise money for the kids. I have numerous things going on during this event. I have several local cosplayers dressed up to the kids favorite characters, I have local mascots including Chilly the Icebear, Homer the Hound, Shoney Bear, Andy the Armadillo, Sharky, Mayfield Cow and hoping for other mascots to join in. We have East Tennessee Tribute Rides on board with the General Lee, Roscoes Cop Car, Ecto 1, Mystery Machine and they'll be unveiling a new ride exclusively at this event. I have a few food vendors and local businesses setting up as well, along with some local Churches. I have 2 wonderful K9's coming with their amazing handler. We will be selling items, collecting donations and doing silent auctions to help raise money for them. My vendors will also be donating a portion of their proceeds to the cause. I am waiting to see if a few other organizations get back with me to jump on board as well. As you can see with all planned that's why it's called EPIC!!! Adding Darth Vader and some Storm Troopers to this event would be the cherry on top Feel free to email me back or give me a call on my cell 865-242-3509.

    UPDATE: looks like the census is in October.
  23. Columbia person here!

    Before the MSC was created, or if you are outside a squad area when you were first approved, the general MSG marker/indicator was used. We were given the option to "join" the squad when MSG was created... some did, some did not. I'm pretty sure, but not 100% certain, that as new members are added, they are automatically linked to the squad if they are within the area. Good news is that it doesn't matter if you are in the MCS or the MSG as a whole... You can still troop anywhere in the garrison. Just know that the events are placed in the squad (MCS) or the garrison as a whole (MSG) based on the location of the events themselves. However, you should still be able to see all the event sections for each squad and the MSG as a whole ... and sign up for as many as you want to troop. Let Robbie or Marcus know if you cannot see the other areas. My limited knowledge on this is as follows: The garrison as a whole gets counted just before the Census in February for the elections, but part of that is to see if one has met the trooping requirement. I think the Co, XO, PR, or maybe the GML's verify who trooped on the local garrison level. I am not clear on the Detachment levels (Jolly Rogers) how they confirm the trooping requirement (if any) for any one detachment, but it is possible that the same process takes care of both... since one's costume is linked to a detachment by default... or so I would think. Another may want to clarify or confirm this, but that is my guess. As a trooper, I have never confirmed any trooping other than posting and showing up at the events. If they think you haven't trooped, there is a list of potentially inactive or retired members that is posted... and if you are on it, you might need to provide the details of when you trooped and with what costume(s)... I think.

    Event Name: Tennessee Thespian Conference Venue: Middle Tennessee State University Venue address: 1301 East Main Street Murfreesboro, Tennessee 37132 USA Event Start: Saturday, Jan 18 - 8:30 am Event End: Saturday, Jan.18 - 7:10 pm Event Website: tnthescon.com Expected number of attendees: 300+ Requested number of characters: 10 Requested character types: Secure changing/staging area: Yes Comments: The Tennessee Thespian Conference is an annual event at MTSU. Thousands of students, presenters and clinicians from all over the nation come together, for workshops and classes, to learn about all aspects of professional theatre--both in front of and behind the curtain. Your Legion would lead a workshop that would share information about the 501st Midsouth Garrison and also provide our young thespians, clinicians and guests and all who enjoy "science fantasy" with an interactive learning experience that promotes volunteerism and a fascination with high quality costuming. Students would have a chance to talk with costumed members and learn/see some of the things that they do at public events for kids and older audiences. It will also be an opportunity for anyone interested in becoming a Legion member to get more information. Workshop times: Saturday morning (8:30 am - 9:15 am ~ 11:00 am -12:00 pm ~ 12:10 pm - 1:00 pm) Saturday afternoon 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm ~ 4:00 pm -4:45 pm ~ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm ~ 6:10 pm - 7:10 pm) Referred by: Invited 501st Legion Carolina Garrison to Town of Summerton, SC STAR WARS Event.

  26. Columbia person here!

    I have some questions. Why do some have an MSG Member banner under their name (where mine says Music City Squad)? Where do we record troops or is it just Jolly Rogers Squadron that counts troops as missions?

    @LordKosh - Thanks for the detailed reply! I'll figure out next steps. I appreciate it. I love my Shock Trooper costume. As you probably know, I believe the only way to have one is to create it. It's my first creation, and I know it needs tweaking to be more accurate. Jim
