    From JC forums, and I live in Nashville area. MSG now... RL in distant future, but not plans immediately. Cell Phone contact is 615-969-9115. Please leave a message (or text me with your MSG or real name) so I know you are not a telemarketer. I got lots of telemarketer calls, so they are ignored in the order they are received. :) But if you leave a voice message or text, I'll call or text you back as soon as possible, such as meeting for a MSG event.

  2. Greetings from tampa bay squad

    "Surely you can do better" Just kidding. Welcome, Chuck.
  3. New in Knoxville

    Once events are safer to do on a regular basis, I'm positive that you will find local Knoxville area troopers to touch base with... At most events, you could come out and meet them and act as a handler/helper until your shoretrooper is ready, and get to know some troopers in the process. You might even consider Chattanooga area events as welll. I know a lot of troopers may not check the forum as much right now, but once they do, I'm certain they will be able to offer some insight and advice as needed. But as as Braden said, feel free to ask questions here.
  4. You can always do a Phasma later if you want to... and have both. Sometimes, having the option for either could be good. Rogue One had some great Imperial add-ons to the costume list.

  7. Hello there

    No problem, that may have been something hat never made it to the calendar. Enjoy,
  8. Hello there

    I'm certain you would be welcomed at any of our events. Obviously, at the moment, events are sort of sparse due to COVID-19 concerns, Once we can troop actively again, we would certainly welcome neighboring garrisons to troop with us if they can be in the area. I have trooped an event in Huntsville with the Alabama Garrison, so I have been on both sides of this part. I don't see that particular event in the Mos Nooga squad section of our events calendar, but depending on when the event would happen, sign-ups would be opened. I am one of the GEC's for Midsouth Garrison, and form time to time, we have had event requests for locations close to the Alabama/TN line, If you are available for any of them, we'd be happy to have you join us. You might also want to glance at the Twin Suns Squad event section as well (Memphis area). Once we are able to do events again, we have a great group of troopers there and a decent number of events (normally).
  9. Hello everyone, we made it

    Now that you have arrived, I think you just need to transfer from Arizona DSG to MidSouth Garrison and you'll be set. If you haven't already done so, you might want to let Arizona DSG know you've moved here, and I think between the Arizona and MidSouth garrisons, "your training will be complete!" Welcome and "We would be honored if you would join us." We have events in Middle TN posted in the even sections for the Music City Squad (Greater Nashville area) and general MidSouth Garrison (surrounding areas) sub-threads.... once you get access. But we also have a lot of events in the Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga areas as well, so if you can make it to those parts of TN, don't forget to look at those event sections as well.

  11. Hello from a Rebel Friend!

    Welcome. Thanks for coming out to the AMC theater in Franklin a few weeks back.

    Okay, so this is an event we were requested for to help cheer up a hospice patient. Location: Governor's Square Mall just off I-24 (Exit 4) Date: Feb 22nd, 2020 from about 4PM to 8PM. Sorry for the short notice, but time is of the essence. Part 1: Hospice Patient meet and greet (plus family that are all Star Wars fans) arranged by a healthcare provider that knows him well. This will last about an hour or so. We should be suited up and ready to go by 4PM... or close to it. We will take our time and mingle with them. They are likely to leave about 5PM --or if he gets anxious and needs less excitement. We will probably use a vacant store within the mall to change, and since the first part will be a more private event, we will invite them into the store area... and keep the changing area as far away from the doorway as possible. When they leave, it will become our changing room. Since his health is failing, it is better to do this hospice visit sooner rather than later. Perhaps we can cheer him/them up. Part 2: Once he and his family leave, the plan is to stay and troop the mall for a few hours after that. Similar to when we support the Dreams and Wishes of TN fund raiser at the GSM location ...often on Father's Day weekend... we will troop in a designated area (likely in the center of the mall somewhere) to help the mall staff raise donations for the American Cancer Society. We can then troop as long as we are able to do so... and leave around 8PM or so. No restrictions on RL, Mando, or Droid builders, so all are welcomed, including handlers. Roster: Post if you can make it, and what costume(s) you will likely use

  15. Hello and Stuff from La Vergne!

    Welcome! You can also join us at most events as a general helper/handler while you are waiting to find or build your own costume(s). You'd meet some of the troops, maybe get some pointers, and see how others made their armor fit. I noticed that the way people have organized the straps is quite different on the inside of the suit based on preferences, even though it should look the same form the outside looking at it. Handlers/helpers can help take pictures, monitor costumed characters for children out of sight or things like gum and paint (depending on the event), as well as extra hands for when a trooper can't quite reach something in costume. If you like officers and crewman costumes, you could potentially start with one of those... while you build your TK armor suit. Having two or more costumes means you'd have options at events. The softer Imperial officer/crewman costumes might be more comfortable, especially for longer troops where you might want a lighter costume for the later half. Some components are even shared by other costumes, so things like flight suits, the belt, boots, and a hat might help you towards other costumes such as TIE pilots, gunners, and other troopers. Just don't count on any of the officer pieces working towards a stormtrooper. The white armor costumes are definitely more recognizable though, and we simply can never have too many stormtroopers. Good luck and check the event calendars frequently if you want to start meting the garrison. Music City Squad (Nashville area) and the general MidSouth Garrison sections have the events local to Middle TN. We add them as the requests come in, so it can change often.
