Troopers met at the nearby Servo for distribution of passes, then we all rolled in to the Show in force. Both Imperials AND rebels all parked together, and with an Audience of a few Farm animals (yes, go crazy people!!!) we proceeded to start one of the WETTEST car park changes I have ever done… car mats were used as dry spots to stand on, and I actually put on as much gear as I could while Still in the drivers seat…
Once everyone was ready, we then proceeded to enter the Show.
It was Quiet…. REAL QUIET… lol
The wet weather made for a slow Start to the event, but as the day ground on, and costumes became heavier as more rain soaked into them, the public slowly began to trickle in. we found a few fun ways to entertain ourselves when the rain got too heavy, A highlite was spending time in the Portable Library bus/truck. I can now add Scanning crew to my Job skills…
As the Day wore on, the weather didn’t oblige and get any better. at around 1pm, all troopers agreed that we weren’t seeing anyone new, and most people were hiding in the limited shelter. with an hour still to go, we called it quits, and began the arduous task of getting changed out of wet costumes, and into semi dry civvies…
Injuries – Nil to report.
Armour Repairs: – I think Something may have Happened to the Directors Costume… Timoth, can provide more details??.
