What a perfect weather day for a troop!

I arrived at the zoo at 10am to meet with their event coordinator to survey our changing room space and discuss the logistics for our afternoon special event(more on that below)

The zoo provided us not only with our own space, but our own private building! They gave us a party room which could have easily fit 150-200 people, complete with two private bathrooms, Water dispenser with cups and tables and chairs so we could spread out our gear.

The rest of the Troopers started to arrive around 11am, and after some meet and greets, we started to gear up and head out into the zoo grounds
Chewie, Rey, and Han started to draw crowds outside the Eagles nests as the rest of the Troops started to pan out around the zoo grounds to meet greet and take pictures.

The zoo had a great turnout of kids dressed for the costume contest. Little Reys, Elsa?s and Anna?s from Frozen, numerous Mandalorian?s galore and even a family dressed to the hilt as Star Wars: Dad as Yoda, Mom as a Stormtrooper and two Younglings dressed as dueling X-wing and Tie Pilots complete with self-made planes made out of boxes!

At 2:30p our group assembled at the zoos costume contest stage to pose for pictures for their youngling contest. There we got to meet a youngling dressed in a home-made full body crocheted Baby Yoda/The Child/The Asset!

At 3p we headed back to the front of the zoo to hold a Special event
Today 10/17 was supposed to be Jeff Denbow and his Bride-to be Nancy?s wedding day. Due to COVID they had to push it back to Oct 2021. The zoo was gracious to offer us their stadium area to hold a special Star Wars wedding ceremony for the couple.

Surrounded by his groomsmen of TK's all in white, Our Tie Pilot and his bride exchanged I-Do's in front of the Supreme Leader as those in the crowd blew bubbles and cheered on the couple brought together as one. Members of the SW family read special cards with statements of love from our favorite movie franchise. "Do, or do not. There is no try", "You look absolutely beautiful, you truly belong here with us among the clouds", and the always popular "I Love you" , "I know".

We exited the theater to some SW music and went back to change. A special thanks to our Christina, JB, and Carida's Sally H for all the prep and congrats to the couple on their union with the galaxies greatest!

We packed up our stuff and were off for some after-troop eats. It was great to have time to chat with Peter, Brenna and Debbie. I look forward to more troops with you to come!

Dave Kreyling - Chewie
Brenna Ryan - Rey
Sean Fassett - Han Solo
Ann Fencl - Wicket
Peter Tulay - Rebel Fleet Trooper
Deborah Neemeyer - Jedi

This was a shared event with Garrison Carida and the Mandolorian Mercs
