On Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1st, members of the 501st’s New England Garrison and Rebel Legion’s Alderaan Base banded together at once again at the 2011 Boston ComiCon at the Hynes Convention Center. Their booth display included handouts for convention-goers, a photo-frame of the Garrison’s past events, a shelf-display of many of the Garrison’s personal props and a specially constructed Nerf Blaster Range where attendees could make a donation to the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” for an opportunity to shoot a trooper.

Thanks to the hard work of the New England Garrison and Alderaan Base members working with the crowds as “Gunnery Sergeants” or as armored, living tagets willing to be pelted by hundreds of Nerf darts, they were able to raise over $1200.00 for the American Cancer Society in support of an upcoming Relay for Life team. A big thanks goes out to all the Legionnaires who were able to attend and make this weekend a memorable one.
