Supporting R2 Builders and Rebel Legion Hoth Base

Troopers arrived for the briefing session and facilities allocation at 11.30 on the fourth Sunday of November.
The weather had seen a turn for the better, so crowds were already starting to build, with early sightings of what appeared to be droid building was a good indication that our intel was indeed accurate (for a change!)

A local guide, secured our route to the extremely spacious and well decked out changing facilities, which we were sharing with imperial robotics engineers. Our undercover officers – who were cleverly disguised as droid builders with their own realistic, but clearly fake (from what the locals were telling us) rebel droids – collected us and divided the group in order to cover more ground in our recruitment and research directives.

Numerous younglings (we’ll call them future recruits) were very keen to show us their robotic designs and discuss with us in detail the ways of the Empire. Their parents and teachers are clearly bringing them up on the right side of the force and they spent a long day developing their knowledge further as they competed in the Lego robotics competition under our watchful eyes.

As part of the Disney sponsorship of this Force For Change event, a number of future recruits were provided detailed scale models of one of our Star Destroyers. As they learn the inner workings of these machines, they will soon be working on full size versions enabling us to spread our good work even further as we stretch into the outer rims of the Empire.

Many group and individual photographs later, the team retired with the satisfaction that the future of the empire was going to be in excellent hands.

Plus Rebel insurgents from Hoth Base

It was a dreary Thursday evening in November in the small dwelling of Melbourne town when our advance party of troopers touched down.
There had been whispers from local spies that three days of festivities were afoot in the area. So our team had been dispatched by the Garrison to recon the area and ensure all Empire citizens were taking full advantage of the opportunity.
Over the three days, the teams need to be divided into multiple groups to ensure our coverage was controlling all areas of the location.

Team 1 on each day had the critical role of ensuring the safe passage of the local groups leader from their bunker to the performance stage. On each occasion this was undertaken with precision and commitment from the troopers. They never lost their man once, even under extremely challenging conditions of poor lighting conditions and what appeared to be tear gas! Those Rebels clearly had other plans, but the team came through every single time.

Meanwhile, crowd control in other areas of the facility was expertly coordinated by numerous brave troopers who formed the remaining team(s). They continued to put their bodies on the line to ensure both young and old citizens were looked after and able to safely transfer to their evenings entertainment with the required holographic evidence of their attendance. Rebels were discovered at various points over the weekend, and they were duly dealt with in accordance with the laws of the land. Fortunately there was also no insurgence from the local scantily clad men and women of clan sexpo, and all troopers returned safely to their hideaway and were able to exfiltrate the area with no mishaps.

Our presence was requested at the Moorabin Imperial Airbase to assess retrofitted craft for atmospheric flight on the planet deemed ‘Earth’ outside the current Galactic Outskirts.
The weather of said planet was haphazardous at best, with the Director being quite displeased with the meteorological reports. Despite this our auxillary force entered multiple aircraft and ran geometric and systematic tests to ensure they were equipped and ready to enter service.

It seemed that despite this being a classified operation, word got out to Rebels who also where in attendance, with one being found hiding in a jet engine, no doubt waiting to commandeer said vehicle when our backs were turned.

The local populace, although slightly deterred by the foreboding clouds and wind, came out to take pictures and be involved in the event.

I am sure we will be back in the future to keep ties with this military installation positive.

Walk for Epilepsy – 20 October 2019

Event: Walk for Epilepsy
Location: Princes Park, Carlton

Date / Time – 20 October 2019 / 0800 to 1200

Weather: Clear skies

TI13879 – Grayus (Joel)
ID6514 – Aussie Juno (Deb)
TI6410 – Sheriff (Jason)
BH50524 – Dishrack (Jon)

Troopers met to obtain an informal briefing before kitting up and patrolling the slight but ever increasing number of citizens ahead of the Walk.

At some stage, troopers may have stepped through a vortex as they encountered super beings from another universe/genre, however citizens appeared not to notice nor care. Accordingly, many worthwhile interactions occured, including a flock of ladies styled in the fashion of the flamingo.

Troopers formed up at the start line for the Walk and, after sending off the crowd with some cheer, prepared medals for presentation upon their return. Every walker and their dog left sporting a medallion in recognition of the monies they raised for the charity.

Casualties – None
Injuries – None
Happy People – Hundreds
Mission Status – Complete

One of the little girls wasn’t very keen with the helmeted troopers, so we kept our distance. The Lady bug from MCG became queen of the kids and made a number of friends well we kept an eye on things, and chatted to the parents. A number of photos were taken to tease older siblings.

Turned up with my wife in tow as a wrangler to ensure I didnt trip over the many many dogs in costume. I posed for many photos and handed out buckets of candy for kids and treats for dogs. Around 11.00 we marched down Bay Street, humans and dogs in tow collecting candy from shops and marching with pride. At the end of the parade I assisted as a traffic TK stopping cars as I directed the parade back across to the starting grounds.

After lots of happy dogs, pats, greedy children (and greedy adults), parades, handouts and awards for best dog costume we finished up around 12.00 and headed home with the mission being completed.


Casualties: None
Injuries: None
Happy People: Humans and Dogs alike!
Unhappy People: A few scared babies!
Mission status: Completed
