Invasion Location: "Newport Cultural Center - Star Wars Day" - Newport, ME
Date: July 23, 2011
Clan: Wampa Clan
Mission Objective: To encourage reading through the Star Wars franchise.

Invasion Report:
by Biohazard

Wampa Clan was proud to return to the Newport Cultural Center again this year to encourage local fans to enjoy reading. They were met by dozens of eager young Star Wars fans, who were ready to take pictures and answer trivia questions with the armored warriors. Joining Wampa again this year was none other than R2-D2, accompanied by his master Paul Bussiere.

Together, Wampa and R2 entertained the young fans with trivia and a costume contest. Several excellent costumes were presented. A few jedi, a Luke Skywalker, and an impressive home-made Mandalorian costume were among the winners who were given free books donated by the Newport Cultural Center (http://www.newportculturalcenter.com/). One lucky fan walked away with a free life-size standee of Darth Vader, too! Wampa looks forward to returning next year again, and helping young fans find the joy of reading and books through their favorite cast of smugglers, jedi, and aliens.

So long as no one points at that those books are upside down, we should be okay.

They weren't upside down. :P

In fact, Chro I were reading the page about "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" in the book '1001 great movies'.
