Mission Report:

Friday
Set up went quickly and easily and we were located right next to the café.
We set up with the 3 group tables in the middle and then props around us.


Saturday
Saturday was crazy fun, people everywhere.




Lots of costumes and very happy people about enjoying what OzCC had to offer.



During the day we had a table visit from Tim Rose. (Where was I for this….)




The raffle went well. One of the 2 Pricklemouse Bears was drawn at 4pm.
Later in the afternoon the crowd died down we closed up.




That evening we went off to have a big group dinner at an unexpected local hotel in the middle of nowhere with was awesome. Cheers Linc and Rin for organising.




Sunday




Was a little quieter, not much, but we had even more fun.

All the officers went out and about to muck around together.




Chewie was a hit again and really help to raise money for Black Dog.




The second bear was raffled off and won by a Merc.

The commanding officers of all clubs presenting the second bear:




Mission Status:
What a fantastic weekend.




The combined groups managed to raise $2,552.25 for the Black Dog Institute (http://www.blackdoginstitute.org.au/). Special shout out to Chris (Old Trooper) and Andrew (Steakhouse) for all their spruiking to help raise this money.

All 3 groups work brilliantly together and was just a great fun weekend.

Nice summation Josh. It was an awesome Con for my first ever troop. I had a great time and I can't wait for the next one.

Have just finished organising all the best of photos that Darren took so will upload them to the respective RL/501st FB groups for people to see.

Luv Sair
Smile
