Mission Report:
We arrived on site at 0700 for Convoy's bump in before open at 0830, bringing our own change room, the Jawa tent and a table. With hundreds of people arriving after the eponymous convoy of motorbikes and trucks down Mount Ousley, we had an action-packed day with plenty of kids and adults lining up to get photos with our characters. Despite being a smaller contingent and our first year we put on a really good showing for the crowds. We talked a lot about The Mandalorian and The Rise of Skywalker with the guests - it was great to see the public get so excited for the new content of Star Wars coming out! We handed out plenty of business cards for both Legions and generated plenty of interest and goodwill with a few of the local businesses.

The weather could not make up its mind all day and were met with a different set of conditions every half hour or so. The Jawa tent took two massive wind hits but with a little ingenuity it stayed up, which was very good especially after the rain started to hit and we needed somewhere to hide.

Mission Status:
Convoy was an absolute success. I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who travelled from every part of NSW to make this a success, from Sydney itself to Newcastle and the Blue Mountains. Convoy is a cause close to my heart and I am so grateful for all the assistance and effort you all put in. Hopefully we'll be back next year bigger and better!

Well done all! Local events are our bread and butter. Thanks for making the effort from all over New South Wales.

Cosplay takes you from the ordinary to the extrodinary.
