REPORT:Most of us met in the car park around 3:00 and headed to the change room. As more of us rocked up, we were told there was no need to hurry as they was a big line and it would be coming through slowly, so we took the opportunity to relax and catch up with each other as we got ready at a comfortable pace. At around 4:00, we took some group photos and headed out to the main lawn area. The lawn itself was surprisingly packed with barely any room to walk between the families who were set up for picnics. We stood in front of the shop they had - which was selling lightsaber-like items that may have been considered Imperial contraband. As people noticed us, it became more busy with younglings and their families coming up for photos, but it was a steady and comfortable crowd.

Closer to 5:00, a group of us split off to patrol the zoo. We walked around the main lawn, into the African Savannah, through the Orangutans and back to the main lawn. It was a great walk, where we had a few good photos ourselves, and many families were pleased to have photos with us along the route. Our Sandtroopers surprised a fair few people. It was the first time a few of our group had been to the zoo, and they enjoyed the walk even though they only got to look at animals briefly. Our walk must have taken close to an hour.

The other group got up to some good fun, walking through the crowd, riding on the carousel and holding the fort for us at the shop while we patrolled the rest of the zoo.

As we reached the main lawn again, we saw Lord Vader had arrived and joined him for some photos before all heading back to the change room for a short break.

When we headed back out, the main entertainment had begun and the attention on us slowed down. We took a walk on the path around the main lawn and had a few more photos with people, but it was much quieter, so we called it a day.

Surprisingly, it was one of the few times we attended an event at the zoo, and it didn't rain. It was a good event, with a good crowd and good weather - a great note to end as our last troop of the year!
