The Original RS

Structure of the Original Rebel Squadrons

Based on the original charter of the Rebel Squadrons (ca. February 1995)

"As for the structure of the group it was loosely based upon a group that I encountered and joined while I was on Compuserve briefly. Their group wasn't so heavily game based and had less of a heirarchy. I still find it so cool that this group I started in 1994 is still in existence today and so huge beyond the ideas and thoughts I had. We started originally just to have a way to compete with each other in X-Wing, now its just plain unbelieveable."
-General RogueLeader, RS founder

The original Rebel Squadrons (ca. 1994-1995) was a loose confederation of squadrons which had their own functions within the club. The RS was a Compuserve-based gaming club due to the fact that the primary ISP (Internet Service Provider) of the time was America Online and its divisions.
