Twilight Comic's Free Comic Book Day

Postby Marvinrobot » Sun May 03, 2009 8:48 pm

On Saturday morning, Clone Trooper Denal, RC-Boss and a stormtrooper invaded Twilights comics as part of FCB. Our appearance not only supported FCB but also Reading is Fundamental (RIF). The store owner very generously set up a Raffle and Silent Auction and was donating the proceeds to RIF. We also had a collection jar. I will post the final tally tomorrow night. There were probably 300 folks come through during our 4 hour troop. We posed for tons of pictures and made roughly 8 recruitment pitches to some seriously interested folks. WE were also unexpectedly joined by a Mando Merc. He was a really nice guy and was just happy to troop. The RC was portrayed by Rick (RC-2537) from the 70th Explorers. The TK was portrayed by Rick's Friend Josh (non-501st borrowed my TK). The Mando was portrayed by Arron. Here are some pics from the event:

The Event Raised $230 dollars

Hey, is there any plans to do this event there again next year? I'm looking for a set date to have my Joker done. :wink: (Or at least the Police Car Escape version. :lol: )
