The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Uniondale Long Island NY would like to include the 501st Legion's Empire City Garrison at their Long Island Retro Gaming Expo on Saturday, August 11th and Sunday August 12th, 2018 from 10am - 3:00pm (9:30am arrival / 12:30 Arrival - 2 Shifts). The organizers would like us until 2pm or 3pm, but they said we are welcome to stay longer to enjoy the con which runs until 10pm Saturday, and 5pm Sunday. The CAM is Long Island's Air and Space museum, and features an actual unused Moon Lander, A10 Tank killer, and other incredible artifacts from our aviation history. They also have a Dome IMAX, motion rides, and some really impressive exhibits. They were very impressed by our appearances over the past 7 years, and they would like a Star Wars presence at their Retro Gaming Expo. This would be a great event for us, and it would really help the museum, which has been struggling in recent years. This event will help increase awareness of the museum, and we may run a "Blast-A-Trooper" or "Photo Op" event throughout the day, to help raise money for the charity of our choice.

The CAM also maintains the historic Nunley Carousel right next store, and we may be asked to ride it again this year. Guests are welcome, and food and drink will be provided during the event. Please chime in with any interest ASAP. We will be creating a guest list as we did in the past, so please provide your full name, costume, and the full name of any of your guests. The changing area is one large classrooms room with desks and chairs that could easily accommodate all of us. This should be a significant crowd. We all had a great time at previous appearances there and we plan to "Rock the Cradle" again this year.

Organizer Comments:
"The Long Island Retro Gaming Expo returns for its 3rd consecutive year for lovers of retro games and classic gaming. Get ready to play all your retro favorites, browse retro gaming vendors, participate in panel discussions, bring your best cosplay, and enter tournaments and win prizes! Panels and presenters from the retro gaming community. Come see many of your favorite YouTube and podcast gaming personalities as well as some special surprise guests. You came last year and we'd love to have you back!"

Note: If you have Rebel Legion, ECG or other Trading Cards of yourself, Please bring a large supply for this and other troops for the table. We need Quantity and Variety, and we are running low on both. We need volunteers for the Photo Op and Blast A Trooper. If you attend for either shift we ask you do at least 1 hour at the table in or out of costume. If you have guests who can help out, it would be greatly appreciated.

Right now, I have plans to go out to Montauk that weekend, but there's a possibility I might be able to troop as my Jedi for a few hours. I'll know a lot better once we get closer. Thanks!

I'll actually be there as a vendor, so I won't be able to troop.

It turns out I'll be there both days this weekend, but I'll be primarily helping out Saber Guild. Thanks!
