Hello everyone!
« on: June 06, 2016, 11:42:30 PM »
Hello all,

My name is Josh. I live near Salem in Turner and just got my Chewbacca suit approved earlier today. I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone and helping to put smiles on kids faces. I'm a lifelong SW fan and this is the first costume I've ever made. Please take a minute and find me on Facebook (profile is Josh Beckett with a pic of me in the Chewie suit next to my beautiful wife and daughter who both helped a tremendous amount with this build).

Just a bit more about me so everyone can begin to get to know me:

I grew up in Southern California (Mission Viejo) and moved up to Oregon in 1995 to attend UofO where I earned my degree and had the privilege of playing football as well. Currently I work in Keizer At Claggett Creek middle school in Special Education. I also coach football at Cascade High School and previously at West Salem High School. Anyway, I'm really excited to help out and can't wait to see everyone at the various events. Please drop me a line so I can get to know you.

Go Ducks and May The Force be with you!

Thank you all for the welcome. Please don't hesitate to tell me if I'm stepping on anyone's toes in regards to event signups and putting in my time. I've heard some stories from different members in other parts of the world that have drama. Especially as it relates to stepping on our other Chewbacca toes. I haven't met Dave yet but Rick has been a huge help to me and I want to make sure I'm not the new guy causing issues. I'm a huge Star Wars nerd who loves showing off the costume I worked so hard on but I can also spot and enjoy everyone else's hard work.

Thank you all again

Josh

Thank you Tony, we needed this. I was just saying to my wife the other night (after I got back from the MAW troop for Bryce) that, for the first time in my life I feel like I'm making real friends. Idk, I mean I had friends...the guys I've coached with, played with in sports, neighbors, etc.....this is just different and.....better (more fulfilling). We went out to eat after that troop and I just felt like I was with good people, people that understand the world doesn't get better unless you make it that way. I don't just like people really fast (at least historically speaking), but I find myself thinking "man! I want to be around those people more!" You and Rick got us acquainted at Cherry City....life has been better since then. Thank you my friend.

When I first met the members 10 yrs ago I was also really impressed. Being a FreeMason I thought "these folks are Masons and don't even know it". Since then Iv'e made many close friends, and many are like a second family. It's so nice finding like minded folks with the same compassion and passion for making a difference and the love of Pop Culture.  :D 8)
