Mission Report:
Heading straight from the Kidsflix troop in Ballina, in SW convoy troopers arrived at the Westpac Chopper headquarters in Lismore to find the Open Day in full swing with jumping castle, SES demonstrations, the fire truck, and Westpac choppers all on display. Games for the kids and rescue demonstrations, sausage sizzle…even a DJ!

We kitted up in the main office amongst the balloons and merchandise and headed out to wow the crowds. We had an immediate impact, the local Chopper mascot gave up and admitted defeat and went home (after a few photos with us)! Troopers had photos, danced with the kids (thanks to the DJ who kindly played the disco Star wars theme song for us) The portable coffee kart team loved us and took a lot of selfies for their boss. Yes they were serving Imperial Dark Roast.

Troopers watched the chopper rescue demonstration (no doubt noting tips on what to do next time the Empire is on the run), helped out with the footy goal kicking game (no surprises they couldn’t’ get any goals, whereas the Jedi scored a 100% record!) and generally added to the fun fair style event, patiently posing for photos with young and old, staying until the very end, when after a coffee the Qlders headed home and the locals departed satisfied with 2 troops for the day well done.

Mission Status: Success. We were all well received and appreciated for being there. A great community event and some good local press. Again good to balance out the Star Wars characters with a Rebel amongst the Imperials, but they aren’t’ that bad really, and are a great addition to the local Northern NSW community.
