"I have a question. Do Wookiees give good hugs?" Marshall Shaffer asked before he and Xander Russell, 11-year-olds from Troop 335 out of West Lafayette, went in for a hug from the furry Star Wars beast.
Star Wars Indiana Cosplayers on Saturday descended upon the Campalorian, Scout BSA's Peshewa District's Mandalorian-themed spring camporee. The event was based on the popular Disney+ series that takes place in the Star Wars universe.
Characters from the movies and show, ranging from Princess Leia to Storm troopers, joined in the fun with around 220 scouts. The camporee was held at the Howard County Fairgrounds and organized by Troops 628 and 528 from Greentown.
Just like the Mandalorians, scouts faced trials and tribulations of their own, which centered around searching and rescuing “Baby Yoda,” including catapult, tug-of-war, geocaching, and tomahawk and knife throwing.
