Nar Shaddaa Base

How many members does the base have?  105 members What is the base’s history?  Originally we were a part of Midwest Base that included Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. When Midwest Base divided into smaller units, the members in Wisconsin and Illinois decided to stay together as one unit, and formed Nar Shaddaa Base. Does the logo have any special meanings to it?  Mostly it represents our names sake, the planet Nar Shaddaa. There are a few “surprises” built into it… but you’ll have to ask a member what they are. 😉 Does the base have a favorite charity or annual event?  We do a lot for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in each state and we also have many members who participate in American Cancer Society cancer walks. One of the favorite events in Wisconsin is Star Wars Day at Discovery World (a hands-on children’s museum) in Milwaukee. In Illinois, the members always look forward to the Bartlett 4th of July Parade.   What are some recent events?  Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – Chicago and Green Bay; Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo – Christmas Tree “Holiday Magic” fundraiser; C2E2 convention, Chicago; Joliet Public Library (Illinois) and Brookfield Public Library (Wisconsin) Star Wars Day.

Freedom Base

What area does your base cover? Virginia and West Virginia How many members does your base have? 75 Does your logo have any special meanings to it?  Freedom Base’s logo is red, white, and blue, and represents the colors of the United States flag and the struggle for freedom against tyranny. Ashley Byram designed the Freedom Base logo and at the time the Base felt this was especially appropriate as Washington DC, the capital of the United States, was within the Base’s area. Even though DC is now a part of Terrapin Base, we have decided to keep to the red, white and blue format because of its symbology to the Rebellion staying true to its cause of freeing systems from the rule of the Empire. Does your base have a favorite charity or annual event? Freedom Base has been active on the charity front throughout the years, participating in Toys-For-Tots, Relay For Life, Cystic Fibrosis, Autism awareness and Special Olympics events across Virginia. We also work closely with our 501st Garrison Tyranus brethren for hospital visits and Make A Wish events, and so much more. The members of Freedom Base are always ready and willing to help those in need and they show it whenever called to duty! It is a wonderful feeling to be there for the kids and parents that are experiencing life altering events to be able to bring a little light back into their day. What are some recent events you’ve had? Freedom Base has had a lot of activity over the years. Base members have attended many conventions across the state, region and U.S., including Dragon*Con, Star Wars Celebrations, Awesomecon, Virginia Comic Con, Madicon, Ring of Fire, Ravencon and many more. In December, Central Region plays host to the Dominion Energy Richmond Christmas Parade where Freedom Base, along with Garrison Tyranus, Firestorm Clan Mandalorian Mercs, and local R2 Builders has been marching since 2008 and have been invited back each year. This is a 2.5 mile march down Broad Street, in front of up to 250,000 fans lined up along the route. We even have our own fan group with signs for the groups every year. The Base has also participated in parades in Raleigh, NC; Tega Cay, SC; Annandale, VA; Virginia Beach, VA. In addition, Freedom Base has participated in events such as comic book shop openings, John Williams-themed symphony events, and our largest one day event, the Udvar-Hazy Smithsonian Air & Space Museum’s annual Air-and-Scare event, This Halloween themed event attracts upward of 40,000 visitors and plays host to more than 100 members of the Rebel Legion, 501st Legion, Mando Mercs,...
