I had the distinct honor of appearing as Darth Vader with the Central California Garrison of the 501st in Stockton, California last night (3/19/2011). It was the 501sts first ever appearance in Stockton...and what a night it was.

The occasion was for the Stockton Thunder Hockey Team's Star Wars night. It was a sell-out crowd. Here's some photos from the event as well as a link to the story on their website.

Here's the Hockey Puck I dropped at the start of the game

And here's just a whole bunch of photos from Sean Blair (The Thunder Photographer) who was gracious enough to send me a copy of all the pics! THANKS SEAN!!!!!

Turns out, Craig Valette is a HUGE Star Wars fan and loved having us at the game. He told us a funny story that he and his wife played the Imperial March at their wedding when they came down the isle! What a fan!

It was a fun night.
