xx January 2014 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad"
Jan 26, 2015, 11:37 PM by Cajun

It is with great pleasure that I announce the January 2015 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad".

Chris Sharp /Naasad Tal from Shoneare Vhekedla Clan (Arizona, USA).

From the nomination:
I would like to nominated my Clan's Russ'alor - Chris Sharpe (Naasad Tal) for the Order of Ori'ramikad. I got my Official Member status earlier this month and this was largely in part to the work that was done with Sharpe as my clan's Russ'alor. Prior to making the decision of joining the MMCC - I was working with the Shoneare Vhekedla Clan (SVC) as one of the four main Star Wars costume clubs here in Arizona. I am the Star Wars Coordinator for Phoenix Comicon so it gave me a lot of interaction with many of the clubs. After receiving an invitation to join from the clan's Alor'ad - Sharpe was the first one to extend a welcome as well as offer to help me get started. As time went on and I learned more about the club, I understood what a Russ'alor was and what their responsibility was to the clan's membership. While my clan has two amazing Russ'alors - it was Sharpe who I turned to as he is on my side of the valley. Once I began working on my plates and my buy'ce, it was Sharpe who I turned to for guidance.

xx Mercs 2015 Operational Fund and Supporter Tags
Jan 02, 2015, 08:34 PM by Thaxos


Hey all, 2015 has officially begun, and that means that we continue to ask for donations to help keep Mercs running on the web. 

As a bit of quick history, when the site began 8 years ago it was being hosted graciously by Mandalor out of his own pocket.  Over time, the site grew so popular that we had to upgrade our web hosting package just to keep the site running smooth and it became too much for one person to bear the cost of.


The money goes towards paying the server bill each month and any administrative costs like software for the forum, brochures for large events, business cards, and getting merchandise set up.  As always, your friendly staff is unpaid and on a volunteer basis, so please take heart that all the donations are going straight to the organization.


We have reset the SUPPORTER tags for this year, so any new donation this year will gain you that nifty tag back.  It will reset at the end of the year.
I have made an effort to catch those who donated within the last two weeks and transfer their Supporter tag over to the new year.
That being said, unlike the Auxiliary membership, the supporter tag has always run on the year.

Those who were missed can PM me and I will check the donation date, but the cutoff date is set and every donation helps.


With Celebration Anaheim this year, along with an ever growing memberbase, now surpassing 1000 Official Members, we'll need your help again this year to raise the funds to support our website and our club.


If you would like to help donate, please find the "Donations" button on the top menu, or visit the front page and look for the "Operation Costs" donation button. 


Thanks again!
