Art Walk 04-06-2016

Blast for the Past, yep another great troop at the Jacksonville Art Walk. This is one of my favorite troops to do. it is also the hardest one to work into the schedule. But the pay off is a lot of people excited to see us and we really get to make memories with all who stop and get a picture with us.

Great Chili Cook-Off

Pecan Park Flea Market

Had a good troop at the Great Chili Cook-Off. we walked the market and put smiles on faces of all the kids and adults lol. after they announced the winner of the cook off, we dressed down and went and had a chili taste test. it was very good. little warm out there but worth the troop.

Support the Troops

Star Wars themed event for Veterans Weekend


It is going to support Combat2College which is a local veterans fundraiser that helps veterans, service members, and their families to resources in order to facilitate their success in post secondary education.


BlackFinn’s hosted this event for our military troops. we walked the room and took photo ops and shook hands as they celebrated the evening. After we completed out mission with the Military troops we stormed the rest of the location and mingled with the patrons that were also celebrating Star Wars Themed evening. The was plenty of Music and fun to be had. the patrons enjoyed the evening just as much as Squad 7 did. the was a fun troop.

Trunk or Treat 2015

Trunk or Treat Festival 

Another Halloween Troop in the book, this event was a fun one. we got to do a little role playing as caravans of hayride trucks brought trailer loads of people by our stage setup. Kids and adults would hope in the back of the trailers for a hayride that took them around a wooded area with 5 different themed settings. Each stop put on a little show for the folks and they enjoyed each stop as much as the next.

The riders were treated to a fun little show. we saw 34 hayrides go by for the 5 hour troop. It was nice and cool and the people really seemed to enjoy the event.

16-ACC2015BannerTroop Dates July 18-19 2015

Today warps up a two day troop at the Ancient City Con. It also was the first time back in my armor since late October 2014. It felt wonderful walking around the convention floor all suited up. There really is nothing like it. Even with my limited vision, watching the peoples faces both grown adults and young kids just put a smile on your face which no one will ever see.

There was a good turn out and the fan came all dressed up in their favorite cos-play costumes. The range of cos-play spanned so many things it would be hard to list. so I wont try but just to say there were a lot of costumes that people put a lot of work into.

I look forward to next years convention, I like the new location (Prime Osborne Convention Center) it has enough space for everybody and give us room to breath lol.. So keep an eye open for next years dates and see you there.

Enjoy the photos of a very small portion of what went on there.
