Woke up to the sound of several attendees waiting in line by the reg table. So many people came to register on-site Friday morning, that we ran out of badges and paper to print them. A lot of people had to wait for multiple hours just to get a badge. I felt so horrible for them. Pre-reg = good idea, yes?
Not only were there several attendees already there, but one of the DJs I had asked to come down was waiting for me down at con-ops. >< Sorry for taking so long, Kyle!
The Meet-The-Guests event started a bit late, and Wendee Lee showed up in time for it. I got some really good mango sorbet, thanks to the hotel <3
Meanwhile, members of the Black Crystals started to show up at reg, most of the line was still waiting, and Hector was losing his head. But the con suite, workshops, and panels were underway and running smoothly.
After everyone had ice cream, the voice actors all went inside for their panel (15 minutes late, might I add), and Markiss, Vince, and I started prepping the Pavilion for the dance. So I had DJ Aura come to set up his laptop, 6:30 rolls around and by a miracle force, Amaya, Hatman, and Hatman's cameraman show up from LA area. Set up goes well, dance gets underway, and HECTOR comes through the doors and surprisingly dances. I had no words for it... x.x
We thought that the hotel didn't tell their other guests about the convention, because they were apparently getting complaints up the wazoo by this time. The hotel liaison from the Doubletree Club Brenda kept having to come over to the tent and telling us to turn it down. Finally, she put her foot down and we had to end it an hour early. Said by to the DJs, they left, and off to the Rum Party I go.
Hung out with a very friendly Tadao, Koko, Tom, Adriel, and JD along with some others who I can't remember at the moment. I went back to the con suite and decided not to sleep there due to the crowd of maids, found out that there was a staff/guest lounge (yay!) with food and water (holy hell, I'm there.), and crashed there for the night...
