Hi! My name is Aurore Auger and I live in Knoxville, TN. I grew up in Middle TN and lived in the Tri-Cities for 10 years before moving to Knoxville, which I love. I have been a SW fan since as long as I can remember. I started to appreciate the Empire when I read Heir to the Empire at the age of 12, Grand Admiral Thrawn and Pellaeon quickly became some of my favorite characters. However, I have wanted to be a part of the 501st Legion since 2002/2003. I believe I read something about it in SW Insider at the time and that's how I heard about the 501st.
I was lucky enough to meet a 501st member prior to C3, who got me access to the 501st Bash in Indy and I loved it. However, life kinda got hectic and joining seemed to always be pushed back. I have gotten everything I need for my Staff Officer uniform, but I know it needs tweeking before being accepted. I'm currently focusing on Celebration Orlando and a wedding in May but plan to have all adjustments done in June so hopefully i will be a proud member of the Midsouth Garrison sometime this summer!
I actually got to meet a few of you at the Knoxville Zoo this past Saturday, which gave me the courage to post on here. And hopefully I'll be able to meet more of you at the 501st Bash in April!
