New Recruits - Your first outings - a guide
#1
G'day new recruits,

Welcome to the Empire!!! As the Garrison Event Co-ordinator (GEC), I thought I would just give you a little bit of advice in regards to you when starting out with the Redback Garrison.

There are no formal guidelines for brand new recruits and their first events - which we call 'troops'. I have fielded a few enquiries over the last few weeks, so I will give you a perspective as Events Co-ordinator.

I know you are as keen as mustard to attend your first event and that is great, but it is preferred that you first go to a few of the larger, public events that the Garrison troops at - fetes/festivals, appearances at shops, exhibitions etc - so you can see what occurs at a troop - this is probably where a lot of new recruits first see or hear about us.

Introduce yourself to the troopers there and have a chat when they get a chance - these events are better for that as at the smaller events, troopers generally won't have time. It is best just to take a step back and observe how troopers interact with the public and how 'wranglers' - those who help and look after troopers - interact and operate with the armoured-up troopers and the public as well.

Get along to a Armour party (or 'AP' - a social event where we all work and help each other out on our costumes) or some social-type event, if one is on, to get to know the members in a more relaxed social setting - and getting 'hands on' advice on how to build your armour, as it can be difficult to explain over a computer.

After you are familiar and comfortable with how trooping/wrangling operates and you are on your way with your first costume - then look to wrangle at public events. It is best to get the feel of the more public events first and know how they work, then you will be more comfortable in the smaller settings like hospitals, birthday parties and the like - as the general public will ask you questions - this way you have some sort of idea - and it is a different ball game with us and sick kids . . .

With the Garrison Membership Liaison (GML) - Phantom - who approves your costumes - we can answer your queries but try to take this as a general guide for your first few outings - sorry troops - with the Redbacks!!

Cheers
Doc
