Date: Sunday 9/08/2015

Venue: New Farm park
Time: 9:30am

Mission: To help build awareness of Apraxia and meet some children and their families.

This was a joint event with the 501st.

Trooper Attendance:


We were joined by some fantastic 501st troopers.

We were extremely proud to have two members of the Galactic Academy join us for the troop.

Report: We arrived at the park just after 9am. The weather was amazing and everyone was ready to meet the families who had attended.

Just after we got ready we found some QLD Police who desperately needed some selfies with us.

Diatium did a good job of keeping the traffic under control 'move along... move along'

Almost every jogger in the park had a picture with the troopers!

Loads of photos were taken as we arrived. All troopers were extremely popular with the kids and the event organisers!

We listend to a short speech about Apraxia and then assembled for the Walkathon around the park. We were asked by the organisers to
lead the way. Some of the children chose to walk with the Jedi and stormtroopers.

We definitely saw some new young recruits for the Rebel Alliance and the Empire in this troop!

After the Walkathon we returned to the main area and continued to talk to the families and get some pictures.
A delicious BBQ was waiting for everyone along with some refreshments.

Thank you to RebelRach who made some muffins and hedgehog slices to share for morning tea.

Costume Malfunctions: nothing to report.

Public Incidents: A few of the children may have been considering joining the Rebels or the Empire!

Thank you to the event organisers and for asking us to attend. It was a pleasure to help out and we all felt extremely welcome.

Why not settling on games that is fun and at the same time your earning. Well it'll make suspense because the game is well but dude just try it and it gave me hope while pandemic is real rn. Online Casino: What Games Should You Play?
