Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2015

We displayed our two droids, R2-D2 and R5-DD (Stacy's personal droid from the popular Pink Five fan films) in the R2 Builders room at Star Wars Celebration at the Anaheim Convention Center April 16-19, 2015. There were about 100 droids on display, as well as a life-sized sand crawler photo backdrop and jawa workshop, all made by club members. A variety of droids from the films were on display to the delight of 150,000 attendees. Droid races were held. It was great fun seeing so many friends and droid builders from around the world.
