Since then calls and emails have flooded in for a second appearance and this was the date we could accommodate. Ghost base was represented by myself as Plo Koon and Gary as Luke. We would love to have more rebels this time as well so come on out.

We have received a return invite from one of our members , Mean Gene Peacock , whom happens to be employed as the Director of the Brandywine Zoo in Delaware.
He will be posting additional details in this thread as they become available .

Wanted to get this back on the radar. Last time here Gary as Luke and me as Plo had a great time. along with us was about 20 Carida so we need more of the good guys to help out. We had over 1800 people in the zoo for this last year and had a blast. Plus you get fed very well ( I know I am the zoo director!) Bring the family they get comped in also. We are also host a special members breakfast that morning and are hoping to have about 4-6 characters there for this from 9-945. Food provided and if family comes they are in for free and get access to zoo before it opens to the public. So let me know if you can make. We also have crash space at our house for anybody. Message with any questions.

NEWs and UPDATE!
I was contacted by the media firm promoting Star Wars Rebels for Disney today. They will now be coming out and this event will be a rebels promotion event for Disney Channel. At the moment handouts and posters of rebels but they may be having the backdrop and other stuff there. There is room so if you want to come arrive by 11am at the zoo. They have already sent paperwork for permission to use stiff in promoting Rebels in the future. Asked about approvals submissions etc, they said as last minute just have folks show up./

Great troop even on a chilly day. There was an accident on I95 and the zoo exit closed so made difficult time for some but in the ned still a good turn out. The morning members only breakfast event kicked things off . 35 people attended had a great breakfast, time with some of the troopers and the zoo to themselves before opening to the public. The public event started at noon and we finished up right at 3pm. Here are totals I have (which may be edited by weeks end.
Breakfast 35 attendees
Regular event 975
Total attendance was 1010. Pretty darn good

The zoo made Approx. $5000 for the day and another $500 was donated to the zoo society at the donation buckets at each station.
The Delaware Zoological Society was very thankful and made a donation of toys to thee Garrison and a bag full of toys were collected from zoo visitors and donated as well. Tray took these for the Garrison supply and he can provide what was collected later.

The Disney Media folks were late arriving to the event due to the aforementioned traffic issues but they were there about an hour, gave out posters and blue ray dvds of Rebels to kids. They also took quite a few photos for use on Disney media items for the near future.



Legion Members in attendance
Gene as Plo Koon
Gary as Luke
Joshua as Tusken
Ryan as Endor Trooper
Bonnie as Leia

Sadie debuted her Bultar Swan Padawn also.

Also another 12 members of Garrison Carida in attendance to round out the numbers. Great event.

Great event. I am so glad the turn out was as good as you mentioned. All the folks that attended looked to have an awesome time. Very impressed with some of the attendees knowledge of star wars. All the kids that day were terrific and has some great costumes.

Good to see and hang out with everyone again.
Great troop! Thanks Gene.

Gary
