Excerpt from 501st Legion Charter
"For areas that lie outside 501st Legion control and do not have enough members to form a Garrison, an Outpost may be formed.
An Outpost requires only one member and is headed by an Outpost Leader (OL), who is elected every February by the members of
the Outpost. Applicants must complete an Outpost Application Form in which they list their new Outpost name, roster of members
from the main 501st roster, territorial boundaries, and Outpost logo. Application for an Outpost must be submitted to the
Legion Council and voted on by at least one-third of the Legion Council members in a simple-majority vote. If approved by
the Legion Council vote, the Outpost immediately becomes official. Once an Outpost contains twenty-five members it may apply
to be a recognized Garrison as outlined above and may waive the one-year trial period at the discretion of the Legion Council.
Member affiliation with this unit is mandatory based upon geographical boundaries and the member's primary residence.
Legion Command requires complete information on the proposal of a new Outpost in the club.
This is to ensure the new Outposts have all the resources in place prior to going active as an independent Outpost.
Kindly fill out all the information as completely as possible. Please understand submissions must undergo review and a possible
probation period set by Legion Command.
In addition to satisfying new unit membership prerequisites, a website and new unit logo that meets Legion requirements must also be submitted.
New unit websites must contain:
