22/12/2013 - Santa Studio, Belmont
Date: Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Venue: Santa Studio, Belmont

Time: 1900 hours - 2100 hours

This was the final weekend before Christmas for the Santa Studio at Belmont.
Troopers were required to provide crowd control for Darth Santa, and to protect the Red-cloaked sith master from any potential Rebel threats.
(Also to have a holly, jolly Christmas).

Trooper Attendance:

Buzzard TK3989
redpaint TR6263
Donut TK50180

Jeadus Teal - Jedi
stormraven - Jedi
Valledor - Jedi

Support Crew / Guest Trooper Attendance:




Gene E-di

When Donut TK50180 arrived at the location, he discovered that the Jedi scum were already on-site, obviously plotting how best to take out Lord Santa.
It very quickly became clear however, that the Dark Lord had obviously used the force to control the weakminded Jedi, as they provided TK50180 with a friendly greeting, welcoming him to the studio.

Inside the homestead of Lord Santa, Donut located troopers Buzzard and redpaint who were in the process of armouring up.
Dount joined them, and before long, all three troopers joined the Jedi outside and the night began.

A never ending stream of patrons visited the studio during the night, obviously coming to pay homage to Darth Santa, and to beg the Sith master to use the Force to provide them with all manner of material possessions.

BigMac arrived on-site and Trooper Donut soon made a pact - if Bigmac would operate Donut's photographic evidence device, Donut would hand out Bigmacs trooper cards to the many children who came along to the studio during the night.
Much to Donut's dismay, this caused a continual stream of children to shout "Thank you Bigmac" towards him.
Serving the Empire had its consequences it would seem.

The crowds never lessened, and just before the guard duty ended for the night, it was decided that the troopers and Jedi would undertake a patrol of the neighbourhood street, to do a final assessment and to ensure Lord Santa's safety.

Charity Funds Raised: N/A - The Studio was raising funds for Bravehearts.

Injuries / Malfunctions: During the final patrol, Donut managed to walk into a stroller and momentarily became stuck.

Public Incidents: None to report.

Mission Status:
Mission was a success. Lord Santa was protected and shall use the Dark Side to fly around the world on Christmas Eve.
Was a very lighthearted troop and a fun way to round out the year.

Thank you to all who attended!
This was an excellent night, with many Lightsabre and candy cane fights held throughout the night, and while some people were a bit surprised at our presence we managed to convince them that Christmas is not just a local Earth custom.

Also of note was the appearance of the rare Corellian Elf Jedi and the never before seen unicorn trooper. The things you see at Christmas Peace
Duty * Honor * Empire

What do you call a stormtrooper who can hit a target?
TIE Pilot Cheeky
I have to admit it was a good troop. Plenty of people enjoying themselves and what better than a Star Wars theme.

Was a good night troop and a lot of fun, even though we never got around to having a photo with santa.

Can't wait to see the photos from the night. Wink
