On July 18th, 2015, Steve Blum was inducted as an Honorary Member of the 501st Legion by Bast Alpha Garrison. Steve provides the voice for Zeb Orrelios in the incredible new series Star Wars: Rebels on Disney XD. In addition to the customary plaque and name badge, Bast Alpha Garrison also gave him a patch and challenge coin. Several members coin checked him the next day and lost! Welcome to the 501st, Steve!
Join Bast Alpha Garrison this year at Mechacon! We will be hosting our second Droid Hunt from our table in Artist’s Alley! The Droid Hunt is FREE to participate in and you may even win a prize!
On May 3rd members of the Bast Alpha Garrison descended upon the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas to celebrate May the 4th. Many pictures were taken, money was raised for charity, and many smiles were put on the faces of children. Our Tie Pilot squad Velkyr Flight performed their second Flyby. Twenty five members attended the event, making this one of our best attended events of the year. Many thanks to all our wranglers who keep us safe and hydrated. Special thanks to Ken “Sharky” Braden for his Stellar photography skills. Our biggest thanks go to the Audubon Aquarium for having us for this very special event. We look forward to doing this again next year!
