114_2302Nothing brings the freaks and the geeks together like a beautiful evening spent at the Art Walk in October at downtown Jacksonville . This one was no exception and it started out great as 501st members meet up and a new home location.

We are now stationed at the Mid Town Deli on Laura street. I really like this location and the thanks goes to Michael Boyce, Sandtrooper TD-9813 for securing this location for us.

This location provides us with a place to setup a table for things like our props and propaganda materials, a place to change with nice clean bathrooms, food and drinks right at hands reach. So the location is not only great for us to suit up and spread the word about the 501st. but it is only a block away from the action.

We had Vader at this troop and when he shows up, well he steals the show. From the moment we turned the corner the crowd mob him and his handlers. The first hour it seemed was stuck on the corner right where we started. We at some point managed to move forward to the next block, still not reaching the center of Art Walk action. But really its good that we never did as the crowded would not allow us or Vader to move. After about another 45 min we gathered up Vader and escorted him back to the staging area.

This was another great evening out at the Art Walk. Here are some pictures of the event. enjoy and post a comment or two.. thanks for the support.

Art Walk, Down Town Jacksonville

Art Walk Jacksonville, Fl

It was an over cast rainy Wednesday afternoon, and I was head downtown to troop my first Art Walk in armor. If you have never been to the Art Walk you should, mark one of the first Wednesdays of any month in your calendar and head on down.

The Art walk will offer you 3 hours of the many faces of Jacksonville both in the Artiest and the fans that walk the closed off streets of downtown. There are many Artiest showing off their talents, Musicians preforming for the masses and all sorts of entertaining things to hear, see and eat.

On this night the 501st meet up at our new location, from what I understand it will be a new base of operations and in time we will setup a table and maybe even host a Blast-A-Trooper event. This will allow us to recruit new people into the fantastic community that is the 501st.

Our night began with everybody meeting up in our new home. It was still a bit rainy when we entered the building. After dressing out, we all headed out side and lingered with the cupcake ladies taking pictures as people passed by. Soon we began our march and the sky seems to clear right up. With the rain being held at bay, we trooped on to the park and the surrounding areas.Art Walk Jacksonville, Fl 1

The night was void of the normal crowd but it was a fun troop and we/I got to end the night with another troop under my belt and hung out with some great guys/gals.

So chalk up another successful troop for TK 50167…. Trooper out!!!
