    Hello my name is Bill, SL 76245, I have two approved costumes in the Carolina Garrison, Count Dooku from ep.2 and an Imperial Officer (ANH Commander). I'm working on an Imperial Gunner. Also working on a Jedi for the RL. I visit Tennessee from time to time and would love to come troop with y'all.

    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.

    I'm a little late to this conversation because I've been out of town, but I agree. I would love to start meeting some of you guys. I hated that I couldn't make out to the ICCC this weekend since it was only like 15 minutes from me. In all seriousness though, now that I've been approved I would love to start meeting some of you guys and get to know you as well. Do you guys ever get together once in while to hang out or just meet and touch base? As a rookie in the 501st I would love to get together and pick your brains and glean from your experiences.
