On a bright and shiny day in a small, quaint town of McMinnville, Oregon, a parade took place to commemorate an historic occasion: mass sightings of an unidentified flying object. May 15, 2010 marked the 11th annual UFO Parade for the city of McMinnville and the NWC, and friends, were there to kick off the occasion. We marched in this parade, wowing the crowds and even ran into some Borg (who may be interested in joining the Mercs).

A good time was had by all. We were blessed with a good turn out of people – both in the crowds and those who had attended the invasion. While it was just two fully kitted Mercs, the whole group represented the Mandalorian Mercs, rather well. We were well received by the crowd, of course having mini-Barf (Barf from Spaceballs) in his little Winnebago didn’t hurt our crowd appeal. Or his big brother, who marched as young podracer Anakin!

Pictured are Praetor Ordo, as a Rebel Fleet Trooper. Aysel was sporting her new kit (it was sic!). Tavrik Gannon, alor’ad of the NWC in his “Brown Boba” attire. Kenaz, in his Tusken Raider. In between Aysel and me is Kenaz’s sons, Podracer Anakin and Mini-Barf. These kids really stole the show! Ram’ser Vau was also in attendance performing much needed spotter duty!

and the kids were very well behaved, even the Mini Barf.  ;D  All in all it was a good time had by all, and my first time doing any of these events in any kind of helmet.  :D

I sure didn't... but those guys seemed interested in maybe becoming Mercs. I gave them my contact info, so we shall see.




A match made in..... Naboo?  ;D


Those kids did a great job. I was very impressed with little Barf as he was tossing the candy out.... and the blue on his mouth (from sucking down on a lolipop) was priceless! I wish we had a picture of that, hehe.

Aysel did very well, for this being her first trial run with the kit. A few more things to add on to the kit and I think she will be official, in no time!

Did anyone get a good photo of Aysel's armour? Her paint job is super detailed and must have taken forever. Plus the paint itself was crazy looking in the sunlight. Well done Aysel!

I think Ram did get a good pic of her helmet, while we were walking. It had that rainbow halo effect going on.... truly epic!

If this doesn't incite some vode to take out some of those Trekkies, I don't know what will!  :P

Aysel's pattern on that armor is amazing! But I have to say, Tavrik sandwiched between two Borg is CLASSIC! :-)
