    Fanboy Expo is reaching out once again to ask the 501st to help make Christmas memories for some great kids. We are honored to be helping East Tennessee Children's Hospital organize a Christmas Parade for the patients who are unable to have visitors or venture out of their rooms this holiday season. We will have a strong cosplay turn out as well as police, fire, army and of course Santa Claus! The parade will be on Sat. December 5th at 1pm in Knoxville TN. Line up will begin at noon. We of course will be wearing masks and socially distancing. Can we count on the 501st to participate? Nothing says Happy Holidays like Star Wars!

    This was brought to us just a few hours ago. “The Marketing department of Centennial Children's asked us to participate in their annual NICU reunion. They want as many characters as possible. They will have safety protocols, but no real contact. All characters are welcome and they will have masks available for those without helmets. It is in the parking lot at Centennial Children's Hospital at 2220 Patterson St, Nashville, TN 37203. They would like people there at 1:30 to get their temps taken and other safety protocol. There will be a changing area and storage for items.”
  14. Reason #1 for moving is my family... reasons #2-100 are winter related!

  16. Hello, from a new transfer

    Welcome to the MSG! My brother lives in Michigan and I'm sure that you will be a lot happier in TN during the winter months. Lol.
  17. Hello, from a new transfer

    Welcome! Michigan is part of my travel territory(when travel was permitted anyway...) and I would usually stay over in the Troy area but always made my way over to the bars/restaurants in Royal Oak. Welcome to the MSG, we're glad to have ya!
  18. Greetings From Georgia!!

    Welcome to the MSG forum! You have a superb selection of costumes and you are welcome to troop with us at any time. See you then. [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Hello! Fellow Legion friend here. I'm based with Georgia Garrison and Bespin Base, hoping to troop with neighboring garrisons again once we actually get back to trooping. Currently I have a dual approved Jawa, Inferno Squad Gideon Hask, just submitted an Ep3 Commander Cody. Also have in the works Jakku Poe Dameron, Inferno Del Meeko, and an Old Republic Havoc Trooper. Also, if thats not enough, I'm an aspiring droid builder. Have an IG-1, Pit Droid, and TROS D-0 currently in the works.
  20. Hello, from a new transfer

    Hey hey! Welcome to the MSG (People capitalize it both ways haha) I'll get your access fixed up so you can see the rest of the boards.
  21. Hello, new brothers and sisters of the Midsouth (is it spelled that way, or is it MidSouth?) My name is Ron Zill, and I will soon be relocating from the Great Lakes Garrison in Michigan. (I've already undergone the procedure to change my affiliation, so I am officially listed in the Midsouth as per my 501st profile). For the first 48+ years of my life, I've lived in Royal Oak, MI (Detroit area), but I will soon be moving to Knoxville (I begin my new job in early November). My ID is TK-82611, specifically as an ANH Stunt trooper. I've been in the 501st for less than two years, but trooped over 70 events during that time. I've been a teacher for nearly 20 years, but I am moving on to a new career at the Y-12 complex in Oak Ridge, working in Building Services. I've visited TN many times, as my best friend has lived here for a long time, my sister and her family for a shorter time, as well as my mother moving here after the passing of my father about 10 years ago. It's time for me to leave MI, and make Tennessee my new home. I can't say I will miss the winters! I have no family of my own, but I am one of those people whose dog is like my child. Once the pandemic is over, I look forward to trooping regularly again, and getting to know you in person. Thanks, and May the Force Be With You.

  24. General Kenobi... you are a bold one. My name is Jared Purcell I have no ties with any costuming group I live in the Chattanooga area I've done some research in the years leading to my 18th to get ready to join lol. I found the forums through the main 501st site. I'm requesting access because I'd like to get to know members in my community and seek wisdom. I hope I did this correctly.
