Hi Folks,

The Social is tentatively scheduled for Friday night at 6 PM. We're hoping to get one of the terrace rooms overlooking the water, but we'll see.

Hopefully we'll have more info shortly, but it's been this long now and I at least wanted to put it out there. We had fantastic turnout at the C4 Social, so don't be shy.

What do we do? It's just a big room where everyone can meet up and talk. I suspect for many people it will be their first time meeting so many folks from the forums. We'll have name tags to help people recognize each other, but also don't be afraid to drag someone around and introduce them. Or walk up and introduce yourself.

Cheers!

It's too late now but some of you guys should have started using real names a while ago. I had no idea what your real name even was until I just checked your proile. Be prepared to make lots of introductions as skywalker_1982. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Lee, I think the convention circuit veterans will tell you that the average amount of sleep per night is 4-5 hours. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I know your name. You bought stuff from me before. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Yeah man, I'm in Jersey. I was in Bayonne until a week ago. I'm in Clifton now. Not too far at all.

Chris is being generous. I think it's more like 2-5. If I get a 6 hour night I consider it lucky. Hell, I've got a 6 hour flight in and after the time change I wind up landing at 7:00AM. If I get 2-3 hours sleep I'll be lucky.

Hey Henrik, I think it will be in the Collector's Panel room in the convention center.
I didn't know you were coming http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Hope to see you there, I'll try to remember to bring your AFD http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Looking at the schedule the social hour starts at 6-6:45pm so are any of you generally planning to attend the opening ceremony to see the "emperor" at 6:30pm??

Jeremy
07-10-2007, 09:13 AM
Good point, I wonder why an overlap was planned. DOn't they want the SWCA peeps heckling Ian?

You've lost it, admit it....

I'm taking Per with me, and we are staying at my inlaws in Wimbledon, but I would like to meet everybody again. That, of course, does not include any of you Swedes, as I see you much too often...

I think Gus thought it was the best time, plus he was told the Ceremonies started at 7 PM.

However, this will be my 5th Celebration event and I haven't been to opening ceremonies once. You aren't missing anything, just a formal declaration that there's a convention and maybe some silly antics and a bunch of people in costume.

I will be there, Chris. I'll be the one dressed as either Darth Vader or Ep III Obi-Wan. ( that's if I've not gone back to the hotel to change into something more comfy!)

There was steve sansweet in a ewok costume during CIV but apart from that, the piece of cake with cool plastic rings and the bomb alert there was nothing too cracking.

I'm looking forward to this! I had to leave early for the ones at C4 and C3 so this is nice that it's at the end of the day.

I'd be interested if something like this was on too. I unforgivably missed the Friday night get-together as I had no idea where the collectors rooms were, or that they even existed in the first place!
