  9. Hello from Sweetwater, TN

    Hello! I'm Kyle Birdwell from Sweetwater TN, and I've been passionate about costuming for some time now, and I've finally decided it's time to finish my TD kit. I've always known about the 501st but a few years ago I was made aware of the MidSouth Garrison from the 501st booth at the Knoxville Fanboy Comic-Con. I'm hoping to get to know the garrison members in my area and start finishing my armor

Completed my DT with Greg down here, went on my first troop with Greg at Kingsport Conapalooza last month. Looking to hopefully submit soon, just fixing a few things beforehand. Hope to meet everyone soon.

    Tullahoma 20th Annual Soap Box Derby Venue: Lincoln Street, Tullahoma Venue address: 501 N. Collins St Tullahoma, Tennessee 37388 USA Event Start: 5/4/2019 - 7am Event End: 5/4/2019 - 3pm Event Website: Expected number of attendees: 60 Requested number of characters: ? Requested character types: Secure changing/staging area: Yes Comments: Each year on the first Saturday in May the City of Tullahoma puts on an annual Soap Box Derby. This year happens to fall on May 4th (Star Wars Day!) and it's our 20th year of the program. I'm going to push it as a Star Wars themed event because of the date, and would like to see if there's a handful of characters that might come for the event, do pictures with the kids and such. What would be ideal is a few in the morning when the event starts and then a few in the afternoon when it ends to do photos with the winners. First race goes down the hill about 7am and the last race is usually between 2 and 3pm based on number of attendees. Thanks for your consideration and look forward to speaking with you. Referred by: Tennessean newspaper article from 2015 MSG GEC Notes: This event is opened to RL, Mandos, and Droid Builders alike... so please post if you can attend this event and will be able to be in Tullahoma, TN on May 4th. Please note that the most people will be there at the start of the race at 7AM, so we are asked to troop for a little while before the 7AM race starts. So, figure that we should start trooping (be in costume) around 6AM if we can be there. The people tend to leave as the races go on, and the kids are eliminated, so while the end of the race may be ideal for us in terms of travel and time suiting up, this will have the fewer number of people... the finalists (kids) and their families most likely. The event is outside, but they do have a lightning shelter if he weather gets bad. It doesn't look like they expect us to stay for the entire day, but I'm sure they wouldn't care if we did. However, since they asked for the beginning and the end, we'll keep two rosters going... one for early morning and one for mid afternoon. You can sign up for AM, or the PM, or both (if you want to troop, go home or do something else, and come back), or stay the entire derby race if you'd like. Just let me know when you post which one(s) you want. If you have more than one costume, you could wear one in the AM and one in the PM. The exact end time depends on the number of racers, so it could be as early as 1PM and as late as 3PM. Those still present at the race will probably take (winners) photos with us since they will likely all be finalists. 6AM (+) Roster: (Figure on being ready to troop a little before 6AM, and likely hanging around for an hour or so.) 2PM (+/-) Roster: (Figure being ready around 1PM and trooping the event until it is over which would be about 3PM.)
  25. 1st Armor

    Well, at least they eventually get it... One school of thought I have seen taken is to build the clean TK and use it for a while. As it gets dirty or scuffed, it gets closer to a Sandtrooper. I'm not an armor expert by any means, but as long as there are not too many differences between the standard TK armor and the armor for a sandy, this also buys you time to acquire or build the other components for a full sandy: back pack, pauldron, ammo pouches, heavy blaster rifle maybe, etc. While you are saving up for those, or getting the pieces ready, you can troop in the clean TK. One thing about trooping events is that you can never have too many TK's (or Sandtroopers for that matter). So either one will fit in well in any event.
  26. 1st Armor

    Update. My BBB Day is in route I found out today. I ended up going with WTF. A friend in our Garrison explained that most troopers are more experienced with WTF armor. Yeah I saw a guy ordered from Anvos and received year and a half later. Ouch Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    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!) 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.
