Mission report written by Ed Karl of the Golden Gate Garrison:

Members of the Golden Gate Garrison and the Rebel Legion began arriving at the Niles District of Fremont on beautiful Friday afternoon of November 23, 2012. The weather was great and the temperature was not too cold.

The parade participants started to don into our costumes at approx. 5:30 pm.

Our Jedi's (Chris Richards and Mitch Johnson) got dressed fairly early and was already rehearsing their lightsaber duel sequences, which they plan to perform when the parade hits various stopping points along the parade route.

Since we were assigned Unit Number 50 (out of 60 parade units), we had some time to chat before our photo shoot.

At approx. 6:30 pm, we assembled for our group photos:

After our group photos, we departed our changing area and headed to our assigned staging area. We entertained photographs with other parade participants.

Apparently, Chris and Mitch had quite a following, complete with fans with matching t-shirts and lightsabers!

At approx. 7:30 pm, our parade unit began to fold into the parade.

And then, we were off to the races...

And when the parade came to a stop, Chris and Mitch would please the spectators with their lightsaber duel performance.

After avoiding various "land mines" along the parade route, our parade unit reached the end of the parade and was bombarded by photo requests. Oh yeah, we were a huge hit!!

We then walked back to the changing area where we dressed down and headed out to the after-even debriefing meeting, at Round Table Pizza.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this parade, we were able to make a good showing. The spectators were quite thrilled to see us each year.
