    Details:

    1. Event Recaps
    a.HALO World Championship 2018
    What went well:
    i. We maintained a consistent presence throughout the show. We were courteous and composed for all photo shoots and requested appearances. We had fun!

    What did we learn:
    i. New and old cosplay attendees should be reminded that other people's personal property is off limits. This includes other cosplayer's props and armor. Whether you are friends or not you must ask the owner's permission each time you wish to handle something that is not your own.

    ii. If giveaways are involved leadership will task one person to divvy them out. If common places are provided leadership will task one or more members to clean up at the end.

    2. Changes in WA Battalion
    Our WA Battalion Commanding Officer Aliya Mathews Huntress217 has unfortunately decided to step down from her position so that she may pursue more cosplay adventures and continue to participate in 405th events. On behalf of the Regiment we thank you for your service. At this time the RCO will handle event planning and the RXO will relay information to the regiment. Information will still be posted to both Facebook groups, but members will be encouraged to post to the Pacific page as to include all regiment members.

    3. Changes in Regiment
    After careful consideration the RCO and RXO have appointed Jacob Gabel aka HitboxWorkshop as our new Regiment Membership Officer! Jacob joined up locally with 405th members after a PAX convention in 2015 and was able to finish a Spartan in time for the launch of Halo 5. Since then he has been active and helpful to cosplay members locally and online through many social media outlets. On behalf of the Regiment we thank you for accepting the position and challenges to come.

    4. Official Pacific Photos
    We would like to consolidate where members can find only the best photos Pacific Regiment has to offer. A plan is in the works and more details will follow.

    1. Refocus Facebook Presence
    With member numbers not increasing the way they use to we'd like to encourage Washington battalion members to post in the Pacific Regiment page instead of WA for a while.

    We've made some changes too. We've added a question for new members. We've added categories for posts so you can filter by staff announcements, event photos, etc.

    2. Potential new event (Auburn, WA)
    Keep your eyes open for a new one time only event. The details have not been narrowed down, but we will make an announcement soon! So far all we know is the city, that it's this summer and the event will be Halo themed.

    PerniciousDuke RXO 405th Regiment Officer

    Meeting:
    Monday June 4th 2018
    (6:00-6:30)

    Attendance:
    Phil Shinner RCO EVAkura
    Chris Pense RXO PerniciousDuke
    Jacob Gabel RMO HitboxWorkshop

    Topics:
    1. PAX West
    2. Dave & Busters
    3. Upcoming Events
    a. PAX West
    b. Rose City Con
    c. Jet City Comic Show

    Details:

    1. PAX West
    Tickets sold out fast! Just as expected. However the twitter feed many people follow did not alert them. If you are without tickets then be aware many people will be selling theirs closer to the event once they are not able to go. Be careful buying second hand! I personally know stub hub has a zero percent return policy. We would recommend sticking to the Halo and Cosplay communities first. Many will take to Facebook to let others know of their available tickets.

    Pacific Regiment will also be submitting for a panel. The panel will be focused on getting new members started. What exactly does it take for a first-timer to make a high quality costume? If you know the answer and are willing to share it on a stage then shoot me a PM! We have two available seats on our panel. You will need evidence of your ability and character, such as costume photos and to view your Facebook profile.

    2. Dave & Busters
    Many may have seen the ads rolling out on Facebook for the new Fireteam Raven arcade game launching exclusively at Dave and Busters. We have been in contact with locations in both WA and CA for approved spartan appearances. Visit our Facebook page often to get the latest. We will know more towards the end of June with the event being sometime in July (most likely).
