#90 Springfield High school music director "Galactic Send-off"
The music director of one of our local high schools is taking on the challenge of middle schoolers and reduced hours to spend more time with his family. He has been at Springfield High school for quite a long time, and is a huge Star Wars fan.The father of one of his students is a Mandalorian Mercenary, and set up a "galactic send-off" with the mercs coming to collect the boiunty and turn him over to the Empire, with Vader, 2 TKs and a Gunner. Then a Jedi, Xwing pilot Chewie and Han Solo come save the day, and present him with a custom painted Wedge Antilles painted helmet, an autograph from John Williams, a "lightsaber" conducting wand and a disney lanyard covered in Disney SW pins. He was totally blown away, and he had to hug Chewie.

#91 Star Wars night at the Medford Rogues
The Medford Rogues are a collegiate wooden bat league in the northwest. This is the second year the 501st and Rebel Legion have made an appearance but my first chance to participate due to my on-call schedule. WARM event but lots of fun. Chewbacca and some Jedi were there too but getting onto the field for the wook and the sun was too much so they stayed on the promenade during the pre-game activities when this picture was taken.

Pomeroy wedding Brownsville, Oregon 7-21-17
Still awaiting a pic but escorted the bride's kids and stood by the groom while they were married, and he's a Make A Wish survivor who got to see the Seahawks a few years back. They are sending a donation to MAW for the appearance, but I do wish we had a TK as well.
I wish them the best going forward.
Bummed about much of the photo links being borked, I think I can fix most of them as I have time.
Yay, got some pics finally.

Camp Attitude, a camp for families with disabled kids and trained staffers to allow the families to have some decompression time and not have to watch their kids the whole time. Completely fenced in for the kid's safety cause some of them like to RUN!
We had Ceremonial Luke, Rey, Chewbacca and an Imperial Gunner, along with 2 cadets, my son an Imperial Officer and "Luke's" son as a Jawa. Still awaiting someone to post a picture but I'll add it later.

Eugene Emeralds Star Wars night August 19, 2017. The 3rd time I've been to this event and I had an Imperial Academy cadet along with me this year!
This keeps getting bigger and bigger each year, the game was sold out and we have a newly-approved Phasma's 1st troop as well!

#96 Make A Wish send-off October 14th, 2017 at Portland International Airport. Get up at 4AM, 2 hour drive to PDX, go through security, and troop, then the same 2 hour drive home, totally worth it.
Got to co-pilot, I was asking it it will do .5 past light speed.... and I wasn't pointing down, silly photo rotations!

#97 Star Wars wedding for one of our Rebel Legion friends on 10/18/17 Qui-Gon and his lovely Jawa tied the knot and we provided entertainment at the reception. Cakes were lovely, and the groom made the bride's dress himself. Awesome skills, I'd like to have 30% of that myself.
