Hello from Northeast Ohio

#1 Post by Sarge » 22 Apr 2017, 19:26

Howdy folks,

I thought I'd pop in and say hello from Northeast Ohio. My name is Ron and it has always been a dream of mine to visit Norway, the land of my Ancestors. I'd like to someday plan a visit to attend a 501st event or two with the Nordic Legion. Any suggestions on which events to go to?

Hi, Ron! You're more than welcome to join us on a troop here in Norway!

Where and when are you planning on visiting? :-)

Hello good sir!
If you want to visit us in Sweden we've got the Scandinavian Sci-fi, game and film Convention 4 times a year in 4 different cities. Helsingborg in october, Stockholm in november, Malmö in march and Gothenburg in april. They are pretty fun with about 30-50 attending members :)

I'm not planning on anything for at least a year, I need to get a passport and save enough funds. It'll also give me enough time to figure out my itinerary. I do want to visit Trondheim, that's where I was told my Ancestors came from.

Well, they came from the right place then! Plenty of troopers in Trondheim! I'd recommend coming here to the National Day parade on May 17th, where we have troopers walk in the big parade around the city. A lot of people wear a traditional costume called "bunad" on that day, so that might be interesting to see. Other than that we attend the local con, Torucon in August, which is also a lot of fun :-) Those two are the biggest troops in Trondheim, and the weather is usually at its best then (around 20 C, or 70 F). We don't have any other local troops planned that far ahead in time. Outside Trondheim, it might be fun to troop at Finse (shooting location of Hoth in ESB), which we plan to do again in February. This year, there were a lot of troopers there from Norway, and some from Sweden and Germany as well. There are other cons and large troops elsewhere in the country as well, but I'll let the troopers local to those tell you about it :-)

Not sure if this is allowed (Admins delete if needed), but if anyone is interested in a trade, I have an Ohio Garrison patch if a member wants to trade for a Nordic Garrison patch.
