Greetings from Shreveport

Postby Tyfera » Thu Nov 05, 2015 11:24 pm

Hello! My name is Matthew and I am from Shreveport, LA. I had the pleasure of speaking with some of the 501st and Rebel Legion members back during the Geek'd Con in August. I have to say, after conversing with them, I got really interested and decided to put together a Tie-Reserve Pilot costume, which I plan to upgrade to a full Tie Pilot in the future. So far, I have ordered my flight suit and gloves from wampa wear. Next on the to-do-list is to find my boots. Hopefully, they have Hobbit size somewhere :). I am looking forward to being apart of the 501st and can't wait to meet new people. I've seen a growing number of posts from people in the Shreveport Bossier area as well, which shows the numbers are definitely growing! Any help and feedback is always appreciated.

Matt,

Welcome to the Bast Alpha forums. Indeed our troop numbers in the Shreveport area is growing steadily. We have many talented members that are willing to offer guidance.

You mentioned you have been in contact with Blackwatch on the JRS in the PM you sent me. His board name he is Dewka, if you didn't already know. He is a super talented guy, you are under excellent care with his guidance in the JRS.

Welcome Matt. Not sure who you as we spoke to hundreds of people that weekend but its great to see more people from up north wanting to join. We are getting more and more events up north so follow the boards to find events up there. I try to make it out to the events up north and have my girlfriend wrangle for us. Feel free to help out at these as its a great way to get to know other members. I thought it was only Zadok and Shane up there but we have a couple more and my gf is looking into an asajj costume. So the members are growing up there.

Thank you all. It was Zadok that my wife and I spoke to. He was his Jedi character when I spoke to him. And yes, Blackwatch/Dewka is awesome with the help and feedback he has given me. He's been a major help and encourager.

Wampa was the hardest wait for me,... but once I was able to get my suit and Belt, it was off to the races!!! I have friends up in Shreveport as well and try to make it up there occasionally. Looking forward to meeting you!
