Hello,

This is one of my local libraries, and I would like to attend.

This would be my first Troop, though, so I'm not quite sure that I'd be ready to troop alone for this event. Anyone else possibly looking to attend?

Cheers!
Jessie

There we go. Signed up for it, instead of just being tenative.

Not /entirely/ sure what I'll be doing, other than being there? I am a super newbie.

Super looking forward to this being my first event, especially since it is right in my neighborhood.

Looks like I'll be the only one there from the RL this time.

Jesse you might be the only RL to attend that event. Which is absolutely OK. I see 5 OLG members and 2 squires from the Evil Empire will be there. You won’t be totally alone!!! After the event, could you please come back to this page and provide a short write up about the event for us??

Awesome - I thought I saw a post from the OLG on FB about this event - good to know there will be others. Not quite sure what the Evil Empire is, but I suppose I'll find out on Saturday.

I'll come back with a report/write up, and hopefully some photos.

Event Write Up - Star Wars At Your Library - December 9, 2017 - Cold Jedi in Snow!

This was my first troop, and I was determined to make it to the library one way or another. So when they started calling for snow on Saturday, December 9th, I wasn't going to let a little weather get in the way of this. There was about an inch or so of snow on the ground, and more falling as I headed there.

I arrived at the White Marsh library about 1:30, and spoke to the Librarian at the information desk, who guided me back to the changing area to get ready and dressed. Once I got that sorted out, they lead me over to the meeting room where several members of the OLG were still in the process of getting ready. We were given a run down as to what the event was going to be - posing for pictures, greeting people, and encouraging them to take part in the various crafts. As we headed out to greet the kids and parents that had made it to the Library, a group of 3 other Rebel/Good Guy costumers arrived - a Rey, another Jedi, and a Scoundrel. I unfortunately didn't get their names (I neglected to get anyone's names in the thick of it all) - they had been contacted by someone to come out, in case there weren't enough people or people weren't able to make it due to the weather. The more the merrier - they evened out the groups nicely, and made it so I wasn't the lone "good guy" there.

There were a handful of crafts and activities to do - Yoda yarn ornaments/sun catchers, Yoda ear headbands, pool-noodle and duct tape lightsabers, make your own flare buttons (with adorable little stickers). They also had a few games set up - like a Star Wars themed corn-hole set, a Star Wars scavenger hunt around the library. They also had adorable little keychains running on the 3D printer that the kids (and parents, and at the end of the event, those of us in costumes) could take.

The turnout was not quite as large as expected due to the snow, but those who made it had a great time. We posed for pictures, chatted with the kids and each other. The librarians had a blast taking pictures with all of us, and interacting with the kids that were there for the event. It was a great first event, and a great deal of fun was had by all, taking photos around the library, in the snow, and with each other. One kid was absolutely enamored with the Stormtroopers who were there, and kept bouncing balloons off his new friend.

Unfortunately, I didn't get nearly as many photos as I would liked to have. I had my husband with me and he got some photos for me - but until I find a way to carry my phone with my Jedi attire, photos might be a bit rough to get.

But what we did take, I've posted here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ID3Cf8BhvkEL3jEw2

Thanks. It was absolutely amazing, and I just wish I had more time this month to do more (work is keeping me from planning much at the moment) Smile And, added bonus, since I had my husband with me, he struck up a conversation with one of the OLG members and he is now working towards getting his own Clone Trooper kit. I'll get him into this eventually.

Let him know I have a neglected Phase II Animated Clone Kit I would be willing to part with at a great deal!
