7000BC is a Northern New Mexico-based organization providing opportunities for comics writers and artists to develop their personal styles and storytelling “voices,” while promoting an understanding of the cultural significance of comic art through seminars and workshops.

DEWBACK RIDGE GARRISON
As part of the 501st Legion volunteer costuming and fundraising organization, this group serves, protects and defends New Mexico for the Empire. We make positive differences throughout the state through a strong Imperial presence and being active in our communities.
Our dedication to children’s needs is reflected in visits to the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital several times a year, our annual participation in the Children’s miracle network radio-a-thon fundraiser, St. Baldrick’s fundraiser for children with cancer, Kids with Cancer Day at the Rio Grande Zoo, and multiple holiday toy drives to benefit Toys for Tots. In addition, we’ve participated in many “walks” to benefit Multiple Sclerosis, Breast Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, and Prostate Cancer, plus the annual UNM Relay for Life. Of course, we also have invested time in getting to know people in the community including Free Comic Book Day, Star Wars in Concert, Weird Al Concert, and our signature event, supporting the Darth Vader Balloon at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
We are always looking for new recruits! Have you ever wanted to be an Imperial Stormtrooper? Maybe a Tusken Raider or Bounty Hunter? Or maybe a new-fangled Clone Trooper! The only requirements for membership are 1) Be at least 18 years old, 2) Own a movie quality Star Wars Imperial Costume and 3) Wear it at a Legion sanctioned event at least one a year.

DW, ABQ Wiki: http://boim.com/wiki/index.php?title=Dr._Who%2C_ABQ
The ISS Tomahawk is a Starfleet International meeting chapter that has a monthly crew meeting on the last Sunday of every month. Our meetings are usually held at a local restaurant, recreational facility, or maybe even an outdoor function. We discuss a little crew business, then typically enjoy some kind of fun activity.
Our events are open to anybody interested in joining us, including members of other chapters, friends and family of members, visitors from other worlds, whoever. It’s all about having fun and making new friends
Many of us also enjoy going to a Sci-Fi convention whenever we can. A couple of the most common conventions that we attend are the Denver Starfest and the Albuquerque Bubonicon.
We also get involved in community service to help make the world a better place.

Welcome to The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association. We are here to celebrate the work of David Weber and the universe he has created in his Honor Harrington books. Our hierarchy structure is set up based on what is in the books. We have gone to great lengths to make sure we are as true to the books as possible, using the books, and input from David Weber and Ad Astra as our guide. We want you to have a positive fandom experience, so please explore our website and if you like what you see, feel free to join us. All we ask is that you remember one thing; no matter what you do, Do It With Honor!
