Hello all, My name James and I'm new to this forum. I met a couple of guys form the Garrison who had a booth set up at the Fanboy Expo in Knoxville TN. I talked with 1 guy for awhile and he told me about the group. I wish I could remember his name. Sry. I have always wanted to put together a Storm Troopers outfit and do appearances( esp. with children). I never really knew how or where to go about this. I always thought is way out of my price range. I am a Public servant here in Knoxville TN, so I already work with the public but sometimes they don't want me around when Im working.(( Wink, Wink, Nudge Nudge!!)) I still remember the day I saw Star Wars come out, I was totally convinced I wanted to be a Trooper!! LOL.... Any and all help I can give to or receive from the Garrison would be awesome!! Thanks for letting me talk for a bit..
