Mission Report:


Day1 - Saturday 7 March

We met up in the parking lot of Old Parliament House at 5.30am Saturday morning and got kitted up in the chilly pre-dawn of Canberra.

We lead by our awesome wranglers Francine, Kim and Piper in front of the pond. We formed up on the edge of the pond in a straight line and people flocked for photos.







After a short while Benoit and crew inflated the Yoda balloon which we were there to support.







At 8am we called it a morning.

We all headed back to for a post-troop bacon and egg sandwich breakfast hosted by Drew and Francine. Thank You very much for your hospitality and endless pot of coffee.
In the evening we all met up for dinner at the Southern Cross Club for a good meal and good companionship.

Day 1 Mission complete.

Mission Report:

Sunday 8 March

We got together again for another morning of trooping in the parking lot of Old Parliament

We made our way back to the same spot as Saturday and formed a straight line again. The public made the early morning worth it with many a photo had.







After standing in position for a while our wranglers changed it up and we were directed to pose in front of the Yoda balloon for an amazing backdrop for photos.








The crowd went wild and our wranglers were up to the task of holding them back from crushing us, but they were having a great time.
We then moved over to under the balloon, next to the basket where Benoit was preparing to go up. He was very appreciative of us coming along to support the balloon spectacular and gave us all a Yoda pin token





At 8.30am we marched off for one final shot in front of Parliament House.





Finally to McCafe for coffee, food and catch up.

Mission Status:

A complete success.
