The Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) held its 5th annual Winter Social on February 9th, 2008 in Laurel, MD.
St. Mary of the Mills reception hall was the location for this annual gathering of DCSWCC members, families, and guests. In addition to the requisite potluck feast fit for a Hutt, activities included a trivia contest, children's games, collectibles raffle, and the traditional White Wampa gift exchange.
The highlight of the afternoon, however, was a very special visit from VIP guest John Morton, who played Luke's snowspeeder tailgunner Dack Ralter in The Empire Strikes Back. Not only did Mr. Morton take on the whole raffle by himself, he also regaled the group and answered questions about his days on the sets of classic films including Star Wars Episode V, Flash Gordon,and Superman II.
DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active collecting clubs in America, with over 75 members. The club meets monthly and holds special events such as socials and "Roadshow" appraisal events throughout the year. In the coming years you can expect DCSWCC to continue its rich history of high-quality exclusive merchandise and charity fundraisers.
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
