Members of the clubs posed for pictures, gave out high-fives, passed out trading cards, and answered questions.  Rex Dha’Werda spent 20 minutes on his knees answering questions from a 7 year old.  Those kids are sure full of lots of questions.

This event marked Fester’s (Jorj Quick’s) the snowtrooper’s 100th Blizzard Force troop.  So great to have everyone there for it.
