Proud and jealous that I didn’t make it there.....I have been devoting a lot of time at home lately.....it’s like the shoe makers kids not having shoes. I do so much handy work outside my own home that by the time I do get home.....I’m too tired. And the fact that I’m now fully involved in another suit. So there is that. But great review and Fireteam Brooklyn (2/3s ready) will do it’s best to make it out next time.Decent write up.
I think you are beating yourself up a bit and really looking for negatives in the cons section. Scheduling of people in a volunteer group is going to get wierd for sure and throw stuff off. Noones fault we ultimately lack man power which is what recruiting is for. Always Be Closing ... I mean Recruiting. The messes in a repair station also happen when you have multiple people switching about fixing things and then trying to run a photo booth which took up almost all of our members. It didn't stay messy for too long as many of us were picking up after eachother. The one portion that was getting too messy was the gear staging /"lounge" area which everyone could see. The dinner is a learning experience and it turned out fine. For a smaller con it was a huge success we all made it look great and we made it fun for attendees. And lastly for photoshoots that can be tough. Pictures at a con are good to have however I feel for the way our group is we try and have a solid location or locations for a photoshoot planned ahead of time at a specific place and time and if at all possible on a separate day other than a convention if the stars can come into alignment. Don't make a convention more difficult than it needs to be. And once again good job and thank you for the write up. Dirtdives is also going to be proud.
