Trooping Kidflix – April 2014


Mar 28 2014

A new year has begun.

March is coming to an end and autumn is upon us here in Tasmania.

Our squad has had a re-election of our current Squad leader Isabella (Izzy), we look forward to trooping in our community and helping raise awareness for many worth while causes.

Our page will be updated shortly to include some great photos of our squad in action and give a little bit of a background to who we are and what makes us put on these costumes.

And now a brief few words from the SL . .

Whew! It’s been a couple of months since I last rambled on here. We have been out and about most recently in the Devonport region helping to raise funds for charity. June looks to be a busy month for us. So far we have 4 events happening, with a 5th very likely to be added to the list soon.

In addition to public appearances, behind-the-scenes projects have been taking place as well. Some of these will appear on the website in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!

HeartKids Car & Bike Show 2013

We are gearing up to take part once more in the excitement of the HeartKids Car & Bike show. HeartKids support families of children who suffer from heart disease and contribute to research that focuses upon reducing heart disease in children. A couple of us went out to the site to pose for photos that were used in the Examiner newspaper to promote the event. We will be up to our usual mischief on the day, so feel free to stop at our tent and say hi.heartkidspromo

Watch out for those trees, TB-33042

How slack am I? TSCCP distracted me to the point where I forgot to put up a message about our newest approved member. Welcome to the family!

TSCCP 2012

I am typing this at our table inside the Silverdome, where the Tasmanian Special Children’s Christmas Party is underway. Santa has just recently arrived (in style – as a passenger in our landspeeder with a stormtrooper escort!!) and the kids are all lining up for their presents.

The troopers drew a massive crowd and many children (and adults) have been lining up to have their picture taken in our new prop – a cut out of the 501st Legion logo. We have been joined by troopers from Victoria and New South Wales, including our charismatic garrison commander, Amro.

It is truly amazing to see so much generosity extended toward these children – and more than a little tear inducing to see them so happy and enjoying themselves. These kids have all had it real tough, so it is heartwarming to see so many people within our community contribute time, money or products to give these children one extra special day.

It’s that time of year again . . .

. . . . so you all know what that means, right? TASMANIAN SPECIAL CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PARTY!!!

We have finally hit the business end of the year (troop-wise). Over the next few weeks, our troopers will be making appearances at parades in both the South and North ends of the state. We will also be present in larger than ever numbers at the Tasmanian Special Children’s Christmas Party (TSCCP). The squad membership has continued to grow during the year. Within the next couple of days, we will have two or three new members approved, bringing our total membership to 25!

If you have found your way to our website wanting to “book” us for your Christmas event, I would ask that you please give us as much notice about an event as is humanly possible. While we try to accommodate short notice or last-minute requests, we sometimes have to refuse event requests because of trooper availability. While we all look for any excuse to put on our armour and help people out, the reality is that we are all volunteers and (shockingly) we do have other everyday life commitments. We are “booked” a year in advance for events such as the Special Children’s Christmas Party and Heart Kids.

SL Ramblings

Now that Celebration VI is over we are starting to see newly approved troopers with 5 digit TK numbers appearing. The 501st Legion continues to grow at a phenomenal rate and has reached a point where all the 4 digit ID numbers have all been assigned. As I write this, Thylacine Squad already has two newly approved troopers with brand spanking shiny new 5 digit ID numbers, with a few more recruits about to start the approval process.

It’s hard to believe that one year ago, our squad had only recently finished its approval process and only had about 10 members. Talk about an exponential growth spurt! With more troopers, our capacity to attend troops also increases exponentially. We are always looking for reasons to pull on the costumes, so feel free to contact us. Doing so well in advance of the event is always best as some planning is usually required and availability of troopers to attend can sometimes be an issue – especially now that we are entering the busier end of the year (troop-wise).

If you are interested in inviting us to participate in your event but aren’t sure if we are available, we do have an event calendar on this website that our upcoming troops are listed on – with the exception of the wedding we recently attended, which was top secret and consequently not listed as it would’ve ruined the surprise. The best way to inquire about us attending your event is to contact the squad leader (I’m the one writing this, by the way) via email:

We have a busy few weeks ahead. If you keep a lookout, I guarantee that you will see us out and about, doing what we do best.
