    Thank you all!
  13. Greetings!

    Welcome, Drew. Knoxville has a nice squad, and many of them have been trooping for several years. Always good to new recruits though, so as long as there are no special restrictions on the events, please check the forums and calendar for events in and around Knoxville area. You can meet some of the local troopers, and perhaps get some good advice and feedback from them. Other areas that tend to have steady events are Chattanooga, Nashville (along with Clarksville), and Memphis. Jackson and Cookeville sometimes have events, too. If you know you are going to be in any of those areas, please look at the calendars for them and come out and meet more of us. I'm fond of the officer classes, and how versatile the uniforms are... You can focus on one, and vary some things, and wind up with quite a few technically different, but valid costumes.
  14. Greetings!

    Hello there! My name is Drew Stewart, and I live in Knoxville. I've always loved Star Wars and been interested in the 501st for a while, but after running into a garrison on vacation in North Carolina the other day, I've decided I needed to take the plunge and join up! I'm interested in making an ID (to start!) and I'm looking forward to commanding some troops!

  21. New Guy here

    Hello everyone! My name is David Gibbs and I am so excited to be a member of the 501st and this Garrison. It is fitting that my first writing is on May the 4th! I look forward to meeting and volunteering with all of you and hopefully help make a few more kids and adult kids smile together. This project of building my costume was a few year process that progressed with a lot of help from my best pal Robby Bucarey who is in the garrison himself. Thank you to all who I've met for being so kind and to both Robby's I know Amburgey and Bucarey for getting me started. Thanks, God bless and May the 4th be with you!

  27. Hello from a Transfer!

    Hi Charity- welcome!! I'm from VA originally (Roanoke) - hoping we get to troop together soon, I'd love to see your Zam Wesell!
  28. Hello from a Transfer!

    Thank you so much! I will definitely check out the event calendar!
  29. Hello from a Transfer!

    Welcome, Charity. I am sure the Knox Eisley Squad will be happy for you to join them. I don't think we have anyone with a Zam Wesell in or near the MSG yet, and of course there is always room for TIE pilots and reserves. Things are slowly starting to pick back up... as conventions and community events are slowly testing the waters in hopes that they can run the events safely. If you are available to troop them, Nashville and Clarksville have events coming up that may be good to troop... and you don't mind the drive. Every so often, we even have events close to Kingsport. Please check the calendar and/or the events section... as we post them as soon as we get the event request.
