TK-29118 Sharkbait's Troop Log (80 Troops)

Recommended Posts

25. Weekend Blender (Fall), Fresno - 9/10

 

37606487735_6885aa2671_o.jpg

 

We were a huge hit at the nail salon.  I'm the one who hesitated and thought, "Can I sit in those chairs in this armor?" and missed my shot at an open chair.  Trend, as I said.

26. Make Matthew Smile, Stockton - 9/24

 

26718502069_ff0fd0eab3_o.jpg

 

No pictures that I could find of this one, either.  It was a last-minute thing put together by Soldiers of the Cross Motorcycle Club for a terminally ill Stockton boy, Matthew.  He was a bit shell shocked at all the attention, but when the club presented him with an electric wheelchair, he didn't have much interest in us anymore, haha.

Again with the trend, I'm the one in the very back, that you can just see my bucket... it was a real tight squeeze in there and it was a hot day.  Wonderful time to feel claustrophobic for the first time.  Epic photo right?

The answer to life, the universe, and everything.  

 

When we posed for this the thought hanging in all our heads was, "Let's count the ways this could go wrong..."  Did I mention it had rained the night before, so the grass was really wet?

44. Make-a-Wish for Nalynn, Fresno - 4/8

 

38493226901_c53f0224d9_o.jpg

 

OT TK on the left.  

 

Naylnn was a nine year old little girl who left the hospital to spend her final days at home.  Her wish was to meet her favorite character, Captain Phasma.  A tall order (no pun intended) for sure.  Many favors, phone calls, and one epic swag bag later, our Squad Leader got her a Phasma, on a few days' notice, no less.  You could tell it took significant effort for her to even smile, but she beamed at each and every one of us when we invaded her bedroom, TFA aptly playing in on the TV in the background.

I couldn't track down a shot of me in armor, so have a picture of the droid you're looking for built by one of our local R2D2 Builders.
