    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: I'm certain this event will be 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 on May 4th. 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... on for early morning and one for mid afternoon. You can sign up for one or the other, 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. If you have more than one costume, you could wear one in the AM and one in the PM. 7AM (+) Roster: (Figure on being ready to troop a little before 7PM, 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.)
  5. 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.
  6. 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

  8. CENSUS TIME

    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.

  10. Hello from Mt. Juliet

    You don't see one called Music City Squad (Greater Nashville Area)? The other ones in the general Middle TN and surrounding areas not within a specific squad jurisdictions are just in the one that says Midsouth Garrison Events. These should both be within the same "Events" section of the forum, but I don't know if the permissions are set differently for those sub-sections. Robbie, are recruits able to see the MCS and general MSG event sections in either the forum or the event calendar? I don't know if the settings are different for these.

    I have access to the Mos Nooga and the Twin Suns but not seeing anything in the Nashville Area. Is that a forum just given to 501st members?

My fiancé’s name is Robbie Foster and We are both OBSESSED with Star Wars lol. He is my Han Solo and I his Princess Leia. A while back he was diagnosed with narcolepsy and has seizures from time to time and a rare blood disorder that can cause strokes. He’s had a very difficult life and has endured through so much from past abusive relationships to physical illnesses as well and I want to make as many of his dreams come true as possible. He’s the finest man in the world to me and it would mean everything to him if the 501st could swing by for a short gig at his job to say he is incredible or I could even make him a medal like the princess gave Luke and Han in episode 4 for the 501st to give to him. Maybe the legion say it’s a special delivery from the Princess. He’s a manager at Cheddars in Johnson City Tennessee. If you could make this dream possible by any chance, even if it was just 2 or 3 people in the legion, it would ! mean the world to him. Thank you for your time. May the force be with you. Always. Referred by: I heard about the 501st from my fiancé. He wants to be in the legion one day.

  18. Tailgate for Cause

    Venue: Nissan Stadium – Parking Lot Venue address: 1 Titans Way, Nashville, TN 37213 Event Website: http://www.tailgateforcause.com Expected number of attendees: 50+ Requested number of characters: 10+ Requested character types: Any Secure changing/staging area: Yes Comments: My employer, V. Alexander & Co., Inc., coordinates fundraisers for charitable organizations and institutions during their Titans tailgate parties. They know of my involvement with the 501st and asked me if we could organize a fundraiser that would benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Childrens Hospital at Vanderbilt just like the three previous years. At the tailgate location, there will be a tent, Titans-themed school bus (changing area), BBQ, drinks, big-screen TV, etc., so it always draws a good crowd. The donated money originates from different sources (company's senior management, food and drinks at the tailgate, etc.). Weather...in case it rains or snows, we should still show up in our MSG and 501st garb.
