Australia Day Brisbane Lord Mayor Achievement Award for Community Service

The Redback Garrison has just been awarded an Australia Day award from the Brisbane City Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, Achievement Award for Community Service and generally being awesome.

In attendance were Adam Lochowicz (Apok), our current Garrison Commanding Officer, Rick Oliver (cobra), our Garrison Executive Officer, Kevin Chamberlain (Kev Vader), our former Garrison Commanding Officer and current Regional Moff of Oceania and Colleen Spoljarevic (Tygress), our Garrison Charity Officer.

Without you guys and gals that don your armour on for charity events, hospital visits, fetes, birthday parties, weddings, conventions and our other big events, we would not raise the money we do nor have the impact on the community that we do.  Even at the Award Ceremony when we were announced, not only did the emcee and the mayor already know who we are and what we do, but so did a lot of the other award recipients.  We must be doing something right.

This is a proud moment in our garrison history. Congratulations to each and every trooper that has contributed to the greatness that is the Redback Garrison. Keep being awesome troopers.

Your extremely proud GCO

What made you want to join the 501st? When I first found out about the 501st and Redbacks at SupaNova Brisbane 2009, I was amazed at the quality of the costumes and how involved the group was in raising money/awareness for various charities. Helping the community whilst having fun sounded like a win win for me! So I just knew I had to be a part of this group.

What costumes do you have?

  • ANH Stormtrooper (Stunt)
  • Republic Commando: Fixer

What is your most memorable troop? The midnight screening of Star Wars Ep7 The Force Awakens @ Chermside Cinemas in 2015.

What is your favourite Star Wars character? R2-D2 and Boba Fett.
