The Saber Guild – Endor Temple

Saber Guild – Endor Temple is the Long Island, New York chapter of Saber Guild. Saber Guild is a not-for-profit, LucasFilm-recognized Star Wars costuming group that specializes in choreographed lightsaber shows. We perform at charity and community events, as well as comic book and sci-fi conventions, all to raise money for charity and share our love of Star Wars with fans around the world. 

Saber Guild started in 2006 with half a dozen people in California, members of established costuming organizations and unofficial lightsaber choreography groups coming together to have fun, serve the community and represent the Star Wars brand in a way that had never been done before. Now, many years later, Saber Guild has over 1000 members with temples located in North and South America, Europe and Asia. Not only are we Lucasfilm’s preferred lightsaber performance group, but we are the largest recognized lightsaber club in the world. 

Endor Temple serves in Nassau and Suffolk counties. We perform scripted, choreographed shows, as well as our interactive Padawan Training Institute, where we teach aspiring young Jedi the ways of the force and the use of a lightsaber. Any and all proceeds for our appearances go to our chosen charity, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. We have also assisted other organizations over the years to help with their fundraising efforts including The Make a Wish Foundation and Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County. None of our members are compensated in any way for their appearances. All of their costumes as well as all of our props and display pieces are either fabricated by our members or purchased by them.

Echo Base – Rebel Legion

What area does your base cover? New York (U.S.A.)

How many members does your base have?  Over 100 Members

What is your base’s history?  Echo is one of the founding bases of the Rebel Legion. Established in 2000, Echo Base once served the membership of the Rebel Legion from Maine down to Maryland. Participating in events in the great cities of the Northeast. Over time, as the Rebel Legion grew, surrounding states started forming their own bases; New England area became Alderaan Base, Maryland became Terapin Base, Pennsylvania and Delaware became Ghost Base, and New Jersey became Devaron base. Since 2000, Echo Base has had a number of notable members as Base Commanding Officers; like Ed O’Connell (Founder), Kate Nixon, Mary Alice Ladd, Tim Levan, Patrick Delito, David Ramsay, Mike Deguzman, Joe Booth, and Dan Decker. Each one moved Echo forward, improved, and stronger. In the past two decades Echo has trooped many events, its members have served on many committees in the Legion and always are ready to help wherever or whoever needs assistance.

Does your logo have any special meanings to it?  The base of the logo is white for the planet Hoth. The words, “North Ridge Patrol” is a homage to the Battle of Hoth in Empire Strikes Back, and of course the Rebel Snowspeeder, the iconic vehicle of the film is also an honor to the film deeply respected. In general our logo and name promotes the film – Empire Strikes Back!

Does your base have a favorite charity or annual event?   Seeing that Echo is a large territorial base, the membership have numerous charities  and annual events that we support, such as Buffalo Bison Star Wars Night; A Galaxy Far Away at the Museum of Play in Rochester, NY; The New York Yankees Star Wars Night, and more.
