New Recruit in Bluegrass living on the border!

Recommended Posts

Hello all!!!

 

I just got approved for my Doctor Aphra yesterday around noon, but they have not posted my announcement photo yet. I am in the Bluegrass Garrison, Blue Sun Squad however I live in the south eastern most corner of KY bordering TN and Virginia.  It takes me 2 hours to get to Lexington going north but 1.5 hours south to Knoxville. Some of my Garrison I met at frankfortcon on saturday suggested I sign up on your boards because you all may have troops going on closer to me that I can come help with. Looking at the schedule I see Ice Bears coming up. I LOVE HOCKEY! But I have no idea Knoxville had a team. So due to scheduling it looks like my very first troop may be Ice Bears if it's ok with you guys! I have checked in and it looks my Boss man Vader from bluegrass and his wife are coming too.

 

Outside the costume, I'm a child therapist working at a private foster care agency. I specialize in doing play therapy with abused and neglected kiddos in states custody. I'm working on my PH.D in counseling so I can start teaching others how to be good therapists. My little family likes star wars, but not the way I love it, it keeps me sane with the line of work I do. 

 

It's a pleasure to be here and I can't wait to meet you guys at the Ice Bears game!

I'm sure that Knox Eisley Squad would love to have you troop with them.  They only have a few events scheduled at the moment, but they definitely get a lot.  They have a few other conventions such as Marble City and Fanboy Expo.  Just check back on the squad's event section... and peek in on the convention section since some events are posted there as well.

 

If Chattanooga isn't too far for you, Mos Nooga Squad also has a regular flow of events coming in.  The calendar should show the events for each squad as well as the full MidSouth Garrison, so check back whenever you have some time.  And if you need a little extra hockey, check the Music City Squad for Nashville Predators events.  The 501st events don't happen every day, but we get them from time to time.

 

Congrats on approval, and welcome.  :)

Bluegrass has plenty of events to be sure but there are a lot in Louisville which is 3 hours away for me. Nashville I'm pretty sure is like 5 hours. Lol but I would love love love to see the predators play the red wings, my two favorite teams. I will definitely be at Fanboy Expo the entire weekend with my cosplay crew, so I'll be available to troop it also. As for everything else I'm figuring it out as I go. Thank you very much for the warm welcome.
