My 1st Troop with 501st.

Post by Red Sector A » Mon Sep 27, 2021 9:10 am

Hello, I only joined the 501st last year so I haven’t been able to troop. I’m going to the MCCC in October so I want to know what I need to do for my 1st troop. I have an approved costume and want to wear it at the event. But I don’t know what I need to do in order to join the party. 😏

I’d like to bring my gear and get dressed there if at all possible, but I need some guidance please.

Thank you!

JC

Go to the sign up thread on this forum and reply that you're going to go:
http://greatlakesgarrison.com/forum/vie ... 54&t=17779
You will need to buy your own ticket for the con, either on-line or at the door. And everybody gets dressed in our changing area that's behind our table area.
Welcome to the Dark Side. We have coooookies!

Keep an eye on the link that Deaftrooper posted. Eric will update the details as they come in.

Thank you both. Already signed up in the thread, bought my passes as soon as they became available, just eager to get to the actual trooping. Anxious and yet nervous at the same time. 😏

I’ll keep my eyes open for further instructions. Thanks!
