Troop Report 
Date: Saturday 1 April 2017

Venue: Private residence - Bellara

Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Mission: Attend a Star Wars themed memorial service for a Star Wars fan who died of cancer. 
 
Trooper Attendance:

Nilrem TK
Dark Dora ISB
Teiwaz TB

Details: 
Karl passed away last week, but he had specific plans for his memorial service. There would be no funeral, the mood upbeat and the theme was Star Wars.

We greeted the guests as they arrived. The guests were mostly clad in Star Wars shirts, but being greeted at the front gate by troopers was a surprise to most. When it came time for the service we laid our buckets and hats on the table up the front and stood at the back. People shared some special memories of Karl and there were a few tears. But at the end of the service it was buckets on and lots of photos and smiles. 

The day unfolded just as Karl had wished. The family were very grateful and donated generously in lieu of flowers. 

A big callout to Nilrem, he drove out a long way to do a backyard troop at Bribie. Thanks mate it is very much appreciated.  

Charity Funds Raised: $496 for Cancer Council - Donated via the Razorbacks Relay for Life Team.

Injuries / Malfunctions: Nil

Public Incidents: Nil

Mission Status: Complete Success

Photos: No shareable photos for this one.

It was great to be part of something so special. A day long remembered. Buckets off.
Have we ever hit anything with these things?
