Event : Back in 2010, the local Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) hosted a Star Wars Day at the Camp Foster Library which the 501st and RL/JO participated in. The event was a big success and the following year, the event morphed into a small local Comic-con. Since then it’s grown in popularity and attendance each year. The 2016 Okinawa Comic-con was the biggest yet!
We setup a 501st booth at this year’s Okinawa Comic-con. We had a photo area which featured a fully operational R2-D2 (built by Evan Lloyd) and an informational area about the 501st. We participated in the Comic-con’s opening ceremonies by welcoming attendees as the doors opened and standing with the III MEF Band as they opened with the Star Wars theme. Throughout the day we had a steady line of Comic-con attendees for photos at our booth and we spoke to at least a dozen people who were interested in joining the 501st. I gave anyone who was interested my contact information, showed them the 501st website, and hope to guide at least of couple of them through the process of joining the 501st. We also had a donation jar setup for a local family in need of assistance, Lynsey and Fabian Gosin, whose daughter suffered a medical emergency during childbirth. We raised $469.29 to donate to them.
