Details: Our host invited us to attend a Star Wars themed fancy dress party for his 50th birthday. They decked the hall with Star Wars decorations, created a range of Star Wars themed food and even had a space ship corridor backdrop for photos. About 100 of his family and friends arrived dressed as their favourite Star Wars characters. There were whispers about the strange folk in red and black shirts carrying large cases around the back of the hall. All a bit of a mystery, but no one seemed to know who they were so the party progressed and they were largely forgotten.

An hour into the party the lights dropped. The DJ played the Imperial March and through the darkness appeared a spectre in black, lit only by his red saber. It was Darth Vader! And he was followed by 11 more characters. The surprise was complete, the guests were completely stunned. Quickly the phones came out and the selfies followed. We all had photos with the backdrop and mingled with the guests. The Jawa stole things, the sabers lit up the photos and somehow despite the heat, the Gamorrean danced!

An hour later we were done. The guests had every combination of photos they could ask for, and memories they will hold for a long time.

The conversations turned to who we were. The guests were surprised to learn we are all volunteers, and then we spoke about Eliza's Smart Pup. One of the guests was so impressed he donated $200 cash to add to the total.

But the troop wasn't an easy one. It had been a very hot day, broken only by a storm which left the air very humid and still. There was no air conditioning and the change room was small with little ventilation, and we had to stay in there to hold the surprise. But no one complained, no one pulled out, they just kept the fluids up and got the job done.

Thanks to all the troopers for your efforts in very trying conditions. Special mention to MyKill and Blue, who backed up from a troop in Toowoomba earlier in the day.


Charity Funds Raised: $700 for Eliza's Smart Pup.

Injuries / Malfunctions: Nil

Public Incidents: Nil

Mission Status: Complete Success

We nearly killed our Vader and Gamorean but we raised an impressive amount for Eliza' Smart Pup! Well done to all the other troopers for not dying!
