3 John Lewis Christmas Party – 13th December 2007

Location
John Lewis, Glasgow 06:00 – 18:00

Mission Report

If I recall anything about this event, it’s a conversation afterwards with resident Tree Botherer and former XO, Ian McMillan about seeing the R2 unit at the NEC and him telling me how much it would cost to build one and how long it would take and that the chances of simply buying one were slim to none. But I digress…

While my own armour was all but complete but not yet cleared, I came along to this low-key event as a spotter again, no doubt buoyed by my lack of having any trooper beaten up on my watch at the NEC.

The request from the organisers was for us to appear at a Christmas Party for local special needs children, that was to greet them as they arrived and between dinner courses and if there was time be on display in the toy department. In the end though the roles were practically reversed as the room for the party was too small to allow sufficient distance between the trestle tables for the folk in costume to safely navigate, reducing their presence to a cameo just inside the doorway.

Unfortunately, because of where the priorities had laid, this meant no advertising of our presence (on a Friday afternoon, natch) and as a result reduced our potential audience to the adults who had business to be in that department in the shop to begin with.

Still, when the staff lift doors open and inside is Darth Vader, a StormTrooper and a Biker Scout, I doubt anyone can consider it a bad day at work!
