xx March 2014 Order of Ori'ramikad Recipient
Apr 11, 2014, 02:18 PM by Mandalore the Uniter
It is with great pleasure that I announce the March 2014 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad".

Joe Knowlton/Solus Raam of Buurenaar Verda Clan (Florida, USA).

Joe stepped into some big shoes in 2013, when Ohl'd Vart,  Alor'ad of BVC was tapped to be the MMCC "Alor".  Joe has done an outstanding job pulling the Clan together, and making it one of the most successful Clans in MMCC.  Below is an nomination excerpt that illustrates one of the many major success Joe has accomplished in his time as BVC Alor'ad;

Joe has proven to be a wonderful Florida leader, working hard to build bridges between the 501st and Rebel Legion and the Mercs on a local level. He has received numerous compliments from the FL CO's of both organizations, recognizing him for his hard work and dedication to reaching out beyond our organization's past problems to model and encourage good behavior from our members when trooping with others. I was so sad to learn that we couldn't really troop very often with the 501st here in Florida; thanks to Joe's work, and his encouragement of other members who are working to improve relations too, this has been swiftly changing. Now we have far more events and much better relations with these groups and they are approaching us to partner statewide.

Please join the MMCC Command Council and myself in congratulating Joe on his achievements.

OYA!

xx Mercs 'Lexington Comic and Toy Convention 2014' Invasion Debriefing
Apr 09, 2014, 01:59 PM by Kensnaps

Invasion location: Lexington, KY (USA)
Date: March 14-16, 2014
Clans Involved: Blue Moon Clan, Rancor Clan, Talon Clan
Mission Objective: To promote the Mandalorian Mercs and induct John Morton as an Honorary Member of the Mandalorian Mercs.

Invasion Report:
The Blue Moon Clan dropped into Lexington, Kentucky for the third annual Lexington Comic & Toy Convention, along with members from Rancor and Talon Clans. While the first night was a quiet evening of setting up and getting situated, Saturday kicked off with a day full of excitement and feels with gifts of honor being passed between members of the Clans.

What made this invasion stand out for Blue Moon though was the honor of inducting John Morton into the Mandalorian Mercs as an Honorary member! John Morton is best known for his role as Dak, Luke's tail gunner in the Battle of Hoth. But he's also known for wearing the Boba Fett suit during the scenes on Bespin. Between that and being able to hang out with Daniel Logan who also attended the convention, this marks a historical moment in Blue Moon Clan history!

Demar used this opportunity to recruit and encourage people to check out the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club website. He also noted that many congoers were unaware that New York State has a Mercs clan and they wanted more information.

exclamation The New Mandalorian Costume Club
Apr 01, 2014, 02:09 PM by Thaxos


Hey folks, by now you're probably wondering what's going on with the site...

After the General Assembly, we'd come to the conclusion that the Mercs organization was not sticking to the traditional family-friendly values we want to portray as a charity costuming group.

As such, the Council has decided that from here on out we'll be the New Mandalorians, pacifists and caring members of a better friendlier costuming club.

With this comes some changes, the Council is now the Ruling Council. Formed by a number of ministers, such as the Minister of Finance and the Minister of the Interior.
The council is presided over by a Prime Minister and a Deputy Minister, and operated out of the Sundari Royal Palace, in North Carolina.

Along with the new changes, we the New Mandalorians have become the first Mandalorian group to gain the acceptance of the Disney Republic, culminating in Mandalore being granted representation in the George Lucas Senate.



We understand that this is a significant change to the group, but we hope you all accept it with open arms and peaceful hearts.
The Minister of the Interior, Ulrik Kanteer, will have the new CRLs posted by the end of the day, and the weapons collection is to be completed by April 10th, 2014.



I would like to apologize for the forum tilt however, that's an unintended technical glitch. Still working on resolving that post-haste.

Invasion Location: "Arrow of Light Ceremony" - Vega Baja, Puerto Rico
Date: 01 March 2014
Clan Involved: Jai'galaar Clan
Mission Objective: To recruit and raise awareness about the MMCC and assist the local 501st Garrison

Invasion Report: As members of Jai'gaalar Clan continued to spread the word and attempt to recruit new members, the clan was approached by a Sith Lord working for the local 501st Garrison. He informed the clan that additional security was needed to escort a group of "scouts". Naturally it was assumed that the scouts were typical blue milk drinking Biker Scouts (and everyone knows those tree dodgers need all the help they can get). The money was right and the clan had a Merc in the area who was able to do the job. 

The scouts were much younger than expected. It must have been an Imperial Youth training facility judging by their age. The scouts were very excited to see the Imperial and Merc security detail. As expected, there were no incidents to report. All in all, easy credits.
