This troop was for the release of The Last Jedi merchandise on Force Friday II. They were very happy with our turn out and would like to see us back at the next big Star Wars event. We walked around outside and entertained the shoppers before they were let in the building, and then we were able to stand guard inside and had opportunities to have pictures taken with individuals as they shopped. We were outside for about an hour and inside for about an hour. We were able to suit down and were done around 1 AM.

This was my first EVCO and my third troop so if I overlooked anybody let me know. Thanks everybody for a fun troop!
