Hello

Recommended Posts

Greetings All,

My name is Adam Hehnen, and I have been an avid Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember. I first saw the 501st at the Bellevue Mall in Nashville, TN. I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I want to join as soon as the funds become available for me to get my own armor. Most recently I have ran into the 501st while working at a Toys R Us in Knoxville, TN. Unfortunately I do not remember any of the names of the people I talked to put they are all really cool guys. I am requesting permission for the message boards for two reasons. The first reason is i would like to follow the 501st and attend as many events as I can including "Armor Building Parties" and the many charitable events that you do. The second reason is in hopes to find fellow Star Wars fans in Knoxville who collect and play the miniatures game.

Welcome, Adam. I was there at the TRU, but that was a while ago and I don't remember who I talked to... LOL

Welcome Adam! Glad you found us. Keep an eye on the "Upcoming Events" threads so you can see where our Garrison will be. The Knoxville area has had some really good events recently, so hopefully it won't be long before you can hang out with members of the garrison.

I remember when the guys were at the Bellevue Mall. That's what got me hooked as well. Can someone post a link to some photos to that troop? I would love to see more pics of that troop. Also do any of you guys remember trooping at the Renaissance Center in Dickson? Are there any pics of this event?
