The New England Garrison was pleased to once again be a large part of the show at Granite State Comicon in Manchester, NH on May 15th, 2011. Granite State Comicon is a smaller sized convention in terms of what we normally attend but it’s been growing steadily for the past few years and it’s always a lot of fun. Chris from Double Midnight Comics is a great host and always does good by the 501st.
This year, the Garrison rolled out our extremely popular and interactive “Shoot the Trooper” display. This NERF shooting range allows fans to line up and take shots at their favorite Star Wars characters all in the name of charity. Thanks to the fans we were able to raise over $300 for the day all going towards our “Team Panda Bear” Relay for Life team.
Thanks to all who came out and supported our cause. We’re looking forward to next year!
