All troopers united in front of the Viennese Giant wheel



The purpose of this event was to present Star Wars to the Austrian public and to raise funds for the Make-a-wish Foundation Austria.
The visitors had the possibility to get a picture together with troopers in front of the Austria´s Garrison photopoint. In total 570 € where raised during this event.

National newspapers announced the event, and therefore between 10000 and 15000 people where visiting the Prater area (free entry) on that day (according media information).
2 national TV stations where present with camera teams and made their reports about this event, showing them on the following days.

Austria´s Alpine Outpost is very proud to have been part of this major event and wishes to thank again all international troopers for their attendance.
A first contact was made with Hungarians who plan to found a new RL outpost!

It is rumored that the preparations for a Prater event in 2013 already started….
