Now, you may be thinking that this is just another Library event....and you could not be more wrong.....

Last year, we had approximately 120 people in costume and 11,000 people from many States came to this event. Streets are blocked off and the event is held in two facilities along with the street.

Here is a copy and paste of last years "Mission Report"....so...if this looks like something you would like to participate in...
after the Mission Report...read more about this years massive Rebel Legion/Nar Shaddaa Base display build...a full size Endor Bunker.

This year NSB featured our Pilots for the display



Some group photos







The Outlaws



I see Pilots...




This year our charity project was selling official "Nar Shaddaa Base Holdout Blasters" - these were actually just blasters found at Dollar Tree that looked suspiciously like a concept blaster that Tim Jarmusz had made...
the blasters were offered as a "prop challenge" for $3.00 - a whopping $620.00 was collected from this project. The money is headed to one of our own...details to follow once the check is sent out.



I stole a lot of good photos off Facebook for this event...

here are but a few...

Tim Jarmusz trying to recruit more Pilots...




Never put these two in the same room....trouble will likely follow...





Always good to see members of Renegade Squad out and about..






The Jedi...






Aggressive negotiations in the Solo household



the Skywalkers...


NSB had both of their Wookiees out tag teaming..





and...you will never know what you might see at the after party...




More photos...both my own...and stolen from only the finest albums on Facebook are here:

It is a true "experience" for sure....

Keep it in mind...maybe another member from your area might want to go as well...and you could share expenses....
