This year's Kansas City Planet Comicon held March 26-27, 2011 featured over 70 costumed troopers from three garrisons in the Legion! Members of the 70th Explorers, Central Garrison and Midwest Garrison provided a unified effort to bring a good time to all of the fans attending the convention. The Star Wars guests at this year's convention included Honorary 501st Legion members: Jeremy Bulloch, Daniel Logan, Tom Kane, Cat Staggs, and Cynthia Martin. Local Star Wars artist, Darryl Woods, was inducted as an Friend of the Legion by the 70th Explorers Garrison in a special presentation on Saturday and Darryl received a plaque, name badge, patch and 70th Explorers Garrison shirt. The debut of the first ever Planet Comicon Droid Hunt was a phenomenal success! The 501st Legion was well received by convention goers and the flash of many digital cameras could be seen illuminating the convention center on both days. A big thank you goes out to all of the 501st Legion members from the 70th Explorers, Central Garrison and Midwest Garrison who attended this successful annual event. See you again next year!

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
