Details:
This year was the 23rd Anniversary of this great annual event. 

Rubber arrived early to bump in the backdrop, he was followed soon after by the other attending troopers.
Once inside, we gathered in the change room for a brief rundown of the event, and troopers kitted up ready to work their magic.
The doors opened to a crowd of approx. 3000 excited kids and family members, so our troopers were kept busy for the duration of the event – putting smiles on the faces of the young and young at heart. 
We got to meet two amazing SmartPup working dogs, whose families were only too happy to share how much these dogs have changed their lives for the better. It was wonderful to see. 
Darth Vader had a bit of an identity crisis after being called Batman along with his sidekick Batgirl (Mara Jade)
All Troopers and wranglers did an amazing job keeping the smiles coming to the patrons faces from start to finish.

At 2:30pm the party was over - the remaining patrons left, we dismantled our backdrops and flags, tidied the change room and departed knowing we had brightened the day for so many. 

Charity Funds Raised: N/A

Injuries / Malfunctions:

No injuries.

Nilrem kitted up only to discover he had left his trooper gloves at home, so he was designated to support/wrangler.

Public Incidents: None

Mission Status:
Judging by the smiles and the fun had, the mission was a  Success!

Thanks Sam for organising this, and to all the troopers for another fantastic troop. 

This is really such a rewarding troop, and a perfect example of the good we get to do.

Watching the excitement and happiness on kids faces  means so much.
