Based on the feedback the 501st received when a Jedi accompanied them at the monthly visit in June the hospital has expanded the cap of costumers, and asked that RL be included in the invite. I am going to keep the cap at 8 for this initial dual legion visit with 4 spots for the 501st, and 4 spots for the RL. If either group can't fill their spots the other group will be given those slots if there are members willing to participate.

Inova Children's Hospital Troop
3300 Gallows Rd, Falls Church, VA 22042
Muster time 2pm
Troop Time 3pm
Costumed- Up to 8 (between both legions)
Handler: 1
Changing area: secured
Parking: Green Visitor lot across from the children's wing. Parking will be comped by the hospital

Directions: When entering the hospital from the Green Visitor lot take the elevators on the right and head up to the 9th floor. The children's wing is a secured area. Press the silver call button to the right of the door to be admitted.

This is a recurring troop with the Fairfax Inova Children's hospital which will take up to 3hrs. You will be visiting with children in the children's wing of the hospital. The hospital will have designated escorts but our handlers are permitted to assist with any costuming.

Requirements for Troop: You MUST fill out forms For the hospital which cover HIPAA and Flu shots.You MUST have a Current Flu shot. These are by request of the Hospital staff and administration. These Forms can be found in the NoVa Region Tyranus Garrison Facebook Files. I can not negotiate these forms or the Flu shot. (if you don't have access to the group I can email you the files)

The form that you need to bring with you (I always have extra copies in my bin) is now on the Freedom Base facebook group. Look for my recent post until the admins are able to place the file in the files section of the group.

Roster:
Costumed
1 - Matt L - TK (501st)
2 - Bria L - Something (501st)
3 - Julia E - Tusken Female (501st)
4 - Neil - Kylo (501st)
5 - Christopher Brooks - Jedi (RL)
6 - Carly K - X-Wing Pilot (RL)
7 - Phil - Jedi (RL)
8 - Aaron - TK (501st)

I can't sign up because I'll actually be a patient at Inova Fairfax starting on 19 July (my surgery is that morning...). Not sure how long my surgery will take, but if you want to stop by afterwards I'll be at the hospital for several days afterwards (about 7 days)...

Deb, we will definitely stop by afterward.

I hope I can make this. Will have to check work scheduling/coverage first before I can commit, but fingers crossed!

Absolutely, 100% down for this. I’ll be in my Jedi.

Also offer to bring my BB8 hero droid, if this is something the hospital would be interested in.

Matt,

Thank you for making this happen for Freedom & Terrapin Bases!!!! I think this will be a great troop moving forward for us on a recurring basis as it has been for Garrison Tyranus.


For anyone interested in this event I'd like to provide some pointers and context so you know what to expect:

- This troop generally lasts 1hr so it is quick
- You are mobile the entire troop, we literally walk room to room and greet children and families on up to 3 floors typically.
- If you think you will get dehydrated please bring your own bottle of water or expect to drink from a water fountain. We try our best not to burden the Nursing staff if at all possible.
- This is not the troop to wear complex costumes as you do have to sometimes squeeze into rooms with multiple medical devices attached to patients
- Please try to refrain from taking pictures with Patients for your personal use. If you do post a picture on social media from the troop please make sure it only includes us (Troopers).
- We always have a volunteer from the hospital escort us and they do a great job of helping but you always need to be cautious of Green Signs at the doors. This means we cannot enter the room to interact with the patient for one reason or another but we can wave from the door! Please be keep an eye out for these because sometimes the volunteer misses it.
- It is advisable to wash your hands thoroughly before and after the troop especially if you are not wearing gloves. Make sure you clean your gloves after the troop as well!
- DO NOT ATTEND this troop if you are sick, think you may be sick, or have recently been sick. It is not fair to the children that are working hard to recover and go home!

Matt did I miss anything? I would love to join as a Rebel for this troop but will be out of town so I'll have to try again in August!

Probably best to text my Mom and see where we are at (surgery is at 8 a.m. but it's a complex procedure and may take a few hours). Mom's name is Jane Gill and her phone # is 941-404-0288.

Best guess is that I'll be in the hospital about 7 days and then home for 6 weeks recovering.

- No Blasters (I'm waiting on confirmation from the POC about light sabers Norman may have snuck under the radar with his)
- Lately we've been going to the ground floor for group photos by the Children's Hospital sign (great for PR) after the troop, which also ends up being a photo session for anyone that happens upon us. This isn't required though.

I'd really love to attend. I've mark down as tentative until I can get my shots/records lined up!

ALSO, the link requires you to join the FB group to see the hospital forms. Is there a way to post/sticky them here for future troops? Thanks!

I'm scheduled to be in the Inova Fairfax women's hospital surgery center starting on the 19th -- my Mom's name and number is in the message above -- text her before stopping in as I'm not sure how long surgery will take or if I'll be up for any visitors...

I cannot thank you all enough for stopping by the hospital following the troop -- it meant the world to both my Mom and I that you were there (and I'm sorry surgery took way longer than we thought and then I was having issues in recovery managing pain - so Mom didn't even get to see me until after 6 p.m.).

The Build-A-Bear and the flowers were wonderfully thoughtful! Normally I would send a hand-written thank you note, but since I'm not 100% sure who all to thank I wanted to drop a note here and let you know what it meant to me to have you all there!

Love,

Deb
