Support Crew / Guest Trooper Attendance:

Guest Trooper - Adam “Starkiller21” Koh from the Singapore Garrison – great to have you troop with us!

Support Crew:
                Bad Karma



An early arrival meant that the minor SNAFU regarding our change-area was sorted, and actually turned out to be a positive. With the change-area located directly adjacent to the sound/video controllers, we were able to hear and watch the entire concert from there.
Troopers spent an hour posing for pictures with guests as they entered the BCEC, and again mingled with guests at the intermission.

Charity Funds Raised:


Injuries / Malfunctions:

Zerebin had a free trip in an ambulance, but made it back to the BCEC in time for the evening performance.

Big Mac bust a boot, and had to do some running repairs. Note to troopers – put together an emergency repair kit for whatever costume you are trooping!

Public Incidents:

Dark Dora had an uplifting experience on one of the floor vents in the BCEC foyer – video to come of that!

Mission Status:


The next concert is on December 1st.  The QSO point of contact, Renee, was extremely happy with our attendance and is already looking forward to having us at the next event.
Twas great fun! Thankyou for organising this.

Hi Kevin,

Just wanted to say a big thank you again for your work in gathering such a wonderful group for our performances on Saturday. We had great feedback from our both the venue staff and audience members, and our staff really enjoyed working with you.

As we discussed, I’ll send you a collection of our collateral for your group to use – posters and postcards etc, and I’ll send through photos for your records too.

Brant – we’d love to invite the 501 legion to Empire Strikes Back on December 1. Are you happy for me the liaise directly and keep you in the loop?

With thanks,


(I asked her on the Saturday night if we could have the leftover promo/merch items for the concert and she will be mailing some out to me to distribute to the attendees)
It was a great experience and the response from the public was fantastic. We had a great day thanks Kev. Looking forward to the next one in December.
