Sorry, guys. I miss doing this event, but I'm planning to do a hospital troop that day instead.

So just an update on things that transpired on Saturday. Our troops from Freedom Base and Garrison Tyranus showed up for the troop ready to help out Toys for Tots and were met with a VERY RUDE AWAKENING.

The manager, Bill, who has been there for the longest time, had up and quit and in his absence a new manager was in his place that apparently does not want to have anything to do with Star Wars, the Rebel Legion, or the 501st.

I was not there but according to Tim, Jon and John, we were treated very poorly, rude and unprofessional.
They didn't have us on the schedule, there was no bin out for the Toys for Tots, NOTHING. We were turned away and told that we were not wanted there.

At this point we are done with Toys R Us. We will not be doing events for them any further.
I am peeved to no end at the treatment our troops from both groups got from this manager.

My plan is to go over there and have a nice talking to regarding the situation and how it unfolded. I am sorry but, our groups are professional, and we represent charitable organizations that do a lot of good, and to be treated like the red headed stepchild is poor.
I am not sure what happened with Bill, who has been helping us previously, but it is upsetting that this is how we were treated.
