New Reserve pilot in Chicago

Post by HARP-4277 »

Greetings Everyone!

I've been debating about wanting to join the 501st for 3-4 years now, and I finally decided a few nights ago (while attending an event the Midwest Garrison showed up to at the Adler Planetarium) that I would take the plunge! After speaking with multiple Midwest members at the event, I decided that I wanted to start out with a Reserve Pilot, and then that way I could slowly work my way up to full-fledged TI, while still being able to attend events.

So far I have received the base Mechanic's jumpsuit and have started ripping the pockets off so I can then add in the correct pockets. I was planning on going to the armor party in Crystal lake on Feb. 10th and seeing if anyone there might be willing to make sure that my pocket sizes and chalk lines are correct before I start sewing.

And yeah, that is about it. All I ask is for patience, and thanks for making this site/forums! Also, I want to thank all of you guys who took the time to speak with a slightly annoying Captain Hammer at the Adler After Dark event! Thanks!

By the way! For any of you who are Lego fans, I'll make you a deal.

I work at the Lego store at Water tower Place. Should any of you be desperately wanting a certain Lego set but it is too pricey, coughExecutorcoughcoughDeathstarcoughBwingcoughcough, let me know and I can hook you up with a decent discount. I just need you to promise me that the set won't end up on ebay or anything, cause that would cost me my job. These discounts would only be for personal use :mrgreen:
