    Very nice. That is a nice collection of patches you have there... a well-trafficed jacket. Certainly let us know next time you plan to be in town and maybe we will have more troopers that can meet up with you. Glad you had a fun visit and got to exchange some swag in the process. Win-Win. Happy New Year!

  11. Visiting from Alaska December 17-28

    Very Grateful for the hospitality, friendships made, and swag collected during my visit to the MidSouth territory. I'm back home in Alaska now and thinking about the terrific members I met this past 10 days and want to extend my appreciation and an open invitation to any members of the MidSouth to contact me if you ever travel to the Far North territory of the Alaskan Garrison. long live the empire! I will try and visit new members hopefully in the remaining 2 squads I wasn’t able to connect with during my stay this year. I will return to try and pry those patches from your fingers, which I’m missing, for my travel jacket.

    This is a Joint-Ops event where KY is the lead garrison and we are the supporting garrison. Last time, we had eight (8) or more troopers form TN join the two (2) troopers from KY. The event requestor (who knows Enrique - Lord Vader) contacted us through him... but the event will really belong to Bluegrass Garrison in KY based on actual location/site. We will be supporting our northern neighbors. Date: May 14, 2022 Warrior-Con Site: Warrior Zone on base, Fort Campbell, KY Address: 3910 Indiana Ave, Ft. Campbell, KY 42223 --Most likely. Time: 1PM to 7PM for the entire thing, but they may break it in two parts. Details: The event requestor has asked us to join them again. The plan at the moment is for 1PM-3PM to the family version and the 4PM-7PM to be the "adult version" --her words, not mine. My guess is that the family con and the adult con may contain different costuming options... where the costumes might be more mature based on the later one. Little kids are bound to be at the first part, so they might try to steer of the more adult costumes (such as Slave Leia) to only the second half of the Warrior-Con. Last time, there was a mini-vendor section, a costume contest for the troops/family, and a few other little things. This certainly was not confined to Star Wars, but we were the main featured attraction. I know they are opened to RL, Mando, and Droid Builders... and will likely add other costumers (super heroes, Ghostbusters, etc.) to the mix. We also did a "grand entrance" for them with a mini-procession. BASE NOTES: Obviously, since this will be on the military base itself, anyone that does not already have a gate pass will need to plan to be there early to get the visitor pass at the main gate. We used Gate 4 last time. No weapons allowed, and you must bring ID, vehicle registration & insurance proof, and of course, have a legitimate reason to be there. The event requestor should notify the visitor station why and when we will be coming out for their event, so we will likely just have to tell them something like, "We are here for the Warrior Zone's Warrior-Con", and who our contact is. I planned to be there 2 hours earlier from the event time, and it worked out last time we went. Please use this spreadsheet provided by Bluegrass Garrison to sign up and ensure to use the correct tab. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zq8tJ1FPEAaMaVhTqys9DXv8OVQPuhHvR895JRAxHBQ/edit You can also feel free to post below to let us know here as well, but please make sure you add yourself to the Bluegrass Garrison signup document above. Ex: Please make sure you indicate the Club as Midsouth Garrison, Corellian Base, Mando Mercs TN clan, or something like that so they know which troopers are TN visitors vs KY troopers.

    Date: January 8, 2022 ---a week and a half away! Event Location: Pennyrile State Forest Park Lodge 20781 Pennyrile lodge rd, Dawson Springs, Ky 42408 Details: The Pennyrile State Forest Park Lodge is functioning as a shelter or temporary housing for about 100 residents affected by the recent tornados, including children. Request is for as many costumed characters as we can provide... and others such as Ghostbusters, superheros, etc. are all welcomed. This will be a fun event for the children impacted by the storms. Secure changing room will be provided, and since this is a hotel-like lodge, there should be plenty of parking (including parking for those with disabilities). NOTES/UPDATES: Obviously, if other costume groups are welcomed, so are RL, Mando, and Droid Builders. If you have contacts with any of them, please invite them to join us and if possible, please give me a head count here by Friday, Jan 7th at 5PM. We will be working with our friends from Bluegrass Garrison in KY as well, so it would be nice to know about how many will show up. Roster -- Please post if you can attend, and list costume option(s) if you know : Enrique D. --Lord Vader (plus handlers?) Michael R. --IC most likely, maybe RG or IG Jay P. --TK (plus 1 handler, maybe)

    Event Name: Kentucky tornado victims fund raiser Venue: Govenor's Square Mall Venue address: 2801 Wilma Rudolph Blvd, Clarksville, TN 37040 USA Event Start: 12-18-21 - 12:00 PM (Noon) Event End: 12-18-21 - 4:00 PM I know this is short notice, but if anyone is available to troop in Clarksville at the mall, we will be raising funds for the tornado victims in Kentucky. Lord Vader has helped arrange this one with our MSG CO, and he is asking his loyal troops to come out and support the cause if you can. My guess is that we will have a changing room and access to one area of the Mall for us to gather in while trooping. It could be the center area, towards the food court, or in a store that is not being used. I will most more when I have more details. However, this is definitely a charity event and last minute... so please pardon the lack of details. I'm certain we will have fun trooping, and all are welcomed to troop with us. I hear Darth Vader has even talked with the TN Ghostbusters in case we encounter and Jedi spirits (past, present, or future). Please post here or just come on out and join us if you can. I will save the formality of a roster, but the more the merrier. Lord Vader should be there, and three others for sure... and I am pretty sure I can make it out, too.
