Gen Con 2007
Last Day - Make It Count
This was me on Saturday Morning...
I only had two scheduled players show up for Saturday's session, Eric and Dan. Eric had played before, but Dan was new. We had a third ask to sit in, after his scheduled event never materialized. Like the previous two times, this event went well. I was once again lucky.
After the session was done, it was off with both Eric and Dan to the Catalyst session about Classic BattleTech. Got a good read on what I need to do over the course of the next year. I left that session more determined than ever.
By now though, it was 4pm, and I had only two hours before the Exhibitor's Hall closed. I still needed to shop for my kids. I got that taken care of, then this happened.
What are ya gonna do?
I still had a bit of freetime left, so I watched a bit of this. It was kinda cool.
The hall was closing down not long after this, so I swung by the Catalyst booth to say my goodbye's to both Loren and Randall at the Catalyst booth. Both encouraged me to get something in. I promised I would. Randall then shocked me by pulling an obscure memory from a Gen Con seven years ago. I was both shocked and amused.
Leaving the Hall, I headed back to the hotel, and got all my stuff together. Gen Con goes through Sunday, but I was leaving at 3am Sunday morning, so this was my last day. I grabbed some dinner and headed down for the podcaster Meet & Greet. A chance for podcasters to get together and meet their fans and each other.
It was a good time. I got to meet a lot of fellow FtB forum posters. It was nice to put faces to names. Here's a shot of John, me and Adam.
The Meet & Greet wound down. I still needed to cover one more event.
I left the party early because I wanted to spend a bit more time with the folks that helped make it possible for me to be here this year.
I got back not long after the fan episode of Fear the Boot. From there, it was just hanging out until I had to head back to the bus depot.
I won't bore you with the trip back, except to say that it was long and a struggle for me to find any kind of sleep. The only excitement came when I almost missed my connecting bus in Chicago. Not good excitement, mind you.
I came home to awaiting arms of a happy wife and children. I was thrilled to see them as well.
As I have said, this Gen Con was easily in the Top 3 I've ever been to. I look forward to goign back next year (we hope).
