Mission: The Chocolate Expo and Fund Raiser at The Cradle of Aviation Museum, Garden City, Long Island, NY
Date: 3/5/2017
Time: 9:30am to 3:00pm

Mission Objective: Our mission was to be available for photo-ops and Blast-A-Trooper throughout the day as people explored the museum and the expo itself. Those members who were in costumes capable of it, they marched around the museum's back to make a "grand entrance" and perform a short skit with the members of the 501st Empire City Garrison. Our Princess Leia in attendance was the star attraction for many people.

Report: Mike (GokaiRed), Christine (Pondlife81), Adria (Adriadc), Peter (Krieger), Kevin (Nivek Boc), Jen (Jen0fArc), Bobby (Darthbane), Sharon (Morgana), Daniel (Magnius), and Patrick (Delpa Gival) were in attendance as well as Patrick's wife, Candace (Nyx), and Danny (RebelDan) as handlers and photographers

We were provided a decent sized changing area and were provided ample pizza and sodas to drink, rest, and relax as necessary, and sufficient table space for both groups. For those who were willing and able to brave the cold, we marched from the back of the museum to the front while being photographed from the air by drone or on the ground as we made a grand entrance led by Echo Base. As we mingled, the skit began of the Rebel vs 501st facing off.

Due to the set-up time needed by the venue, we were waiting for over an hour fully suited up, and basically spent another hour of our time on site in the main lobby area this making Blast-A-Trooper unfeasible with the time remaining.

slowly but surely our members were able to get to the table area to pose for pictures as well as enjoy the Expo.

Shout out to Jen0fArc on her first troop as a member of Rebel Legion! Also, I want to give a shoutout to darthbane, Magnius, Delpa Gival, Adriadc, and Krieger for braving the winter cold to march outside!

Finally, a shout out to Mike (GokaiRed) and Patrick (Delpa Gival) for doing double duty as a member of the Rebel Legion and then changing to troop as part of the 501st to relieve some of the exhausted stormtroopers.
