Arrived at Zing pop Culture Frankston for the morning /afternoon shoppers, car park change, the staff at Zing had also dressed up to raise money for the Starlight Foundation. We spent the day posing as statues and giving the shoppers a fright when we moved, but it was all in fun and plenty of smiles and laughs were had. The day was a good one, with many photos and approx. $250 raised from the day.

After quickly kitting up we made our way into the room where the other children & teenagers were being looked after by the wonderful nurses and volunteers. We engaged with them as best as we could and took some photos. We also put our art skills to the test again and I don’t think any of us passed art school.

Report:
First off, My apologies for such a late report, my initial one apparently didn’t want to post properly and has disappeared into the internet somewhere, probably due to Rebel Spies.

Troopers gathered in the car park to kit up and have the signs and flags distributed before we made the walk to the starting area of the Parade. After a bit of standing around during which time many photos were taken, we lined up in formation, with yours truly at the head of the line feeling extremely nervous as this was not only a big event but also my first as an official 501st Member :)

And then before we knew it we were off and marching through the street, cameras flashing from the sidelines, people waving and our trusty Jawa causing havoc and thoroughly entertaining the crowd with her antics. Despite it being a warm day our troops showed no signs of fatigue while demonstrating the might of the empire. after a quick drink at the end it was back to the car park to de-kit and find some much needed food!!!

Overall another wonderful day trooping with some amazing people and a fantastic way to start my trooping with the 501st.

Report:
Troopers arrived just before 10 am and got kitted up in the change room, there was one rebel pilot at this event.
We spent a bit of time interacting with the kids, there was a special little girl that was very intent on stripping everyone down to their under suits.
We took some group photos and gave out some high fives before sitting or standing to do some Star Wars art with the kids.
It was so good to see the kids after a fairly intense start (the kids can get overwhelmed quite easily) settle in and just want to look and interact with us, this was a very satisfying troop which I’m sure will stick with us for some time.

May the 4th Fed Square

Event: May the 4th
Location: Federation Square

Date / Time – May 4th All Day

Weather: Melbourne!
(Sunny, breezy, chilly, and occasionally wet)

Troopers:
Everyone… it would be quicker to list who wasn’t there!!

Plus visiting troopers from
Redback Garrison,
501st Copperhead Outpost,
501st Thylacine Outpost,
Southern Dewback Garrison

Report:

Kicking the day off for an 8am start, the team proceeded to the main stage area for a Live interview on Breakfast TV for Darth Maul (also the author of todays breifing report [emoji6] thanks Boss!) along with a few key support troopers.
A battle cry was put out to the local population to attend, and they did not let us down.

For the subsequent 9 hours, crowds descended on the square for photo after photo with a vast array of amazing Star Wars Characters.

The boss took over the main photo booth area with the support of a couple of his most trusted TKs for the morning. The remaining troopers searched out Rebels, Rebel sympathisers, and took careful note of the youngling training sessions being held throughout the day.

For part of the day, a war damaged X-wing was re-built and allowed some reprive for our troopers. And after a mass group photo and short retirement for a well earned rest in the local watering hole, further crowd control was undertaken to see out the daylight.

On completion of the troop, most troopers were rewarded with an extra extra long walk in preparation for the evenings NEON Run entertainment to end an epic day of trooping!

The bar has now well and truely been set for next year…ImageImageImageImageImage
