  4. Tie Pilot checking in

    Hi Jesse, There are often events in Knoxville and Chattanooga areas that would probably be relatively close for you. If you don't mind driving to Cookeville, Nashville, Clarksville, or maybe even towards Jackson or Memphis, you'd have more events. ROB-CON was in Kingston last weekend, Fanboy Expo was in late June in Knoxville, and Connooga will come around again as well. But there are lots of events, that should be on the calendar, that get added as they come in... so check it often. Sometimes we get a few at a time, sometimes we get a lot! Things coming up: GoFest in Chattanooga (Sept) Knoxville Team Hope Walk (Oct) Dogwood Rock Your School (Sept) Cookeville FNB of TN Family Appreciation day (Sept) (and Nashville/Clarksville area) Opryland Hotel Make-a-Wish reveal (August) Clarksville Day of Play (Sept) Strike out HD in Columbia (Sept) ...and four more events so far in/near Nashville for September.
  5. Welcome (back), Scott.

They raised funds and project has continued now for three years. I have wrote and received a grant/funding from the TNECD in 2017. With these funds I have finished the space with seating and the seating, led lighting, audio and projector and control unit. We have been having free shows for kids, teachers, civic groups while we are going through training on the equipment. Our Grand Opening is on July 11. This is the best date that the TNECD had to come for a visit and a viewing. We will have several people from around the state and our community at the event. We would love to have you all to help us welcome everyone. I just know you are the perfect group to help us welcome in the new Planetarium. I have wanted to get your group here for ever. The Planetarium is going to be a huge impact for our rural community. It wi! ll create interest in the STEAM activities. It will be a true inspiration! Referred by: My husband and sons meet your group at the Tupelo Mississippi Comic Con in 2017. Note: Very short notice, and also on a weekday... Posting it here, but warning them that this is not likely to get a lot of troopers, if any.
  7. Why hello!

    Welcome (back), Jennifer. You can come out and troop with us, or perhaps be a handler until your costume is ready and approved, so check the events and the calendar for new events regularly. BTW: The Knoxville area just had a con this last weekend (Saturday and Sunday ...yesterday). Knoxville and Chattanooga have steady events, so I'm sure you could come out and join us/them at almost all of them. And, if you feel like a drive, Cookeville, Nashville, and Clarksville have regular events you could join us at as well... not to mention Jackson, Memphis, and KY. However, feel free to pick the ones that work best for you. From time to time, we even get requests for the Kingsport area as well if you'd prefer not to drive so far.

  9. Introduction post.

    We were just at the Governor's Square Mall for an event on Saturday... But, we have several events throughout the year in Clarksville, and you can certainly come out and see us there or at something else (perhaps in Nashville area if not in Clarksville). Welcome to the party. Also, from time to time, there are build parties that happen where troopers (and new recruits) get together to build and socialize. You can also ask those that have already built similar costumes for pointers and helpful hints as well.
  10. Hello!

    Indeed. Even though you aren't quite ready to troop the event, there is no better way to get to know the other (local) troopers. They may be able to help you build, find, or assemble parts of your costume... in the form of what you could do... or in some cases what they have tried that didn't work so well. After all, we have all built or assembled something. If you want to come out to one of the events that we will be at, please RSVP on the calendar or the posted event and let us know. Troopers in attendance will know to expect you, look for you, and should be friendly and welcoming. As a helper/handler, you can still be very a important part of trooping. You can help troopers: suit up ...such as attach the hard-to-reach parts of the armor guide those with limited mobility/vision through doorways, up or down steps, through crowds take pictures for kids/guests that want to be in the image and generally watch out so that the more obnoxious kids/teens/adults don't hit us, get paint, markers, glue, or gum on the costumes, or other misconduct.

  12. Hello!

    HI Morgan, and welcome to the group. Knoxville does not have it's own squad yet, but there is active conversation about it. While the squad may not be finalized yet, there are several active troopers in the Knoxville area. Chattanooga has a few as well that often participate in Knoxville area events. Right now, all the Knoxville events are with the rest of the MidSouth Garrison events (like Clarksville and Cookeville). The were at the Knoxville Zoo last week and will be at both the FanBoy Expo event in Knoxville and the Rob-Con in Kingston this June and July respectively. Knoxville area does get regular events, so if you can see the calendar, don't forget to check often. You can also troop anywhere in the Garrison area you want, regardless of squads, so don't feel you have to wait for Knoxville events to troop (once you have your costume/armor done) or just come out and meet the group (as a handler or helper). Sometimes, they have built parties in the area and could provide some guidance if you want it. Many have built armored troopers and guards before (even if not specifically Phasma). Visiting other garrisons is also pretty easy.

    Event Name: Relay for Life Venue: Kenwood Education Venue address: 651 Dunlop Ln Clarksville, Tennessee 37040 USA Event Start: May 19th - 10:00 am 12pm (Noon) Event End: May 19th - 10:00 pm 3PM or 4PM Event Website: Expected number of attendees: 2-3 30-50 Requested number of characters: 2-3 Requested character types: Secure changing/staging area: No Comments: Relay for Life Starwars event for cancer awareness. Tennova is hosting this as far as I know is an outside event. Updated Info: "It is an all day event, though it's supposed to officially start at 12 noon, ... but... your guys to be there 12 to maybe 3 or 4 that would be great as well." So like most relay races or 5K's we participate in, they'd like us suited up for the start of the race, and for a few hours. The event is actually all day for Tennova, but the event requester knows that we don't need to be present for the full relay. Any trooper(s) that feel like staying longer are welcomed to do so, but they will be happy with a few hours at the beginning of the relay, especially on such short notice.

  17. I am official.

    Welcome to the Garrison.
  18. Howdy from Nashville!

    April and May are busy months, so there should be a lot of trooping potential. Welcome. Might I suggest the GroundCrew costume as the natural supplement to your Jyn Erso? Even though she was still rebel scum... when in full costume, you could get approved as 501st --if you want to. And, you can still be Jyn Erso.
  19. Spring Cleaning / Next Steps

    A wise move, Robbie, as some updates cause a cascade issues when software, databases, or server settings get changes. I'll let you know if I think of something to add.
  20. Greetings from Middle TN!

    Congrats on the RL approval and welcome to your local 501st garrison. Most events posted here at the MSG are opened to RL members as well, so once you can view events, don't hesitate to sign up for any that you'd like to troop. The more, the merrier.
  21. Hello from North Mississippi!

    Warrant Officers don't have rank bars. But that is a great place to get started...as I did. Upgrade the boots and add the rank bar to turn the warrant officer into a staff officer. Or swap the hat out for a navy trooper helmet. I have always enjoyed how versatile the officer corp components are. I think Robbie or someone higher up the command staff would have to give you access to the forum sections. Welcome to TN.
  22. Greetings from ATL!

    Welcome. The Memphis area does some fine trooping locally and are a great bunch of troopers. On occasion, there are also events near Jackson as well. If you feel like driving further East, please feel free to join us at any Nashville and/or Clarksville events. Lexington and Louisville have plenty of events as well, so if you'd like to go a little up North, I'm sure you would be welcomed to do so. Like stormtroopers, you can never have too many Jawas.
  23. Let Me In...LOL!

    ...actually, can you see the Events section(s) at all? I was able to see them when I was a "recruit", but that was on a different version of the forum.
  24. Let Me In...LOL!

    Can you see the "Events: Kentucky Squad" section on the forum? If so, the events are all posted here. (I'm not sure you can see it until you are approved, or if the calendar access is different from the forum access.)
  25. Let Me In...LOL!

    Welcome to the group. BTW: we have at least two near Nashville... but it never hurts to have more... and to have another closer to Louisville area at that. Derby City squad gets quite a few event requests, so you shouldn't have trouble finding places to troop. In most cases, you could come out to the event as a handler/helper until you get your Juno approved. Blue Sun (Lexington area) also gets events you could join. And, if you feel like a trip to Nashville or Middle TN, Music City Squad has plenty of events. Clarksville has a few coming up as well.
