Troop 6 - November 26, 2022
This was an absolutely awesome troop. We were lucky enough to have Garrick Hagen (Biggs), Angus MacInnes (Gold Leader) and Roger Christian (Set Decorator and Production designer) From A New Hope. They were all very friendly and happy to share stories of their experience working on the original episode. Roger is the person that made Luke’s lightsaber, the E-11 blaster that we all love as well as the other blasters and even R2 D2.
We raised money for the local Children’s hospital and 4 of us had the honour of escorting the trio into their evening panel discussion to the Star Wars Theme song. That was truly the highlight of the day.

Photo ops with Garrick and Angus:
Also picked up a jacket from one of the other garrison members that he was no longer using that had an FISD patch on the shoulder and the large 11” 501st one on the back.
