Just returned from the Phoenix Comic Con. What a great time. Well organized convention and I highly recommend it. I was working of course and had Gigi Edgley and David Franklin with me and they did quite well. This convention is nicely spread out, well organized and this year was twice as busy as last year! This well kept secret is getting out! It is still affordable, however and a great destination should you choose to go. I will be posting photos once I get them downloaded, but man, I am tired! Such a good weekend and good friends who came to the convention. So good to see those people!!
I absolutely have to give major kudos to the staff of the convention for taking great care of us the whole weekend. We were well fed and watered and in 100 degree heat that was very necessary. I also give kudos to them for the efficient evacuation of the convention center on Sunday when the fire alarm went off and it was an actual emergency. They had thousands of people to get out of that convention center and they got every one out and there was no mad scramble, it was completely orderly. I give the fans huge credit for that as well, I guess geeks just don’t panic like the general public. 😉 😉 I also have to thank the people who helped me evacuate. I have a torn meniscus, so walking stairs is tough at best AND I am severely anemic, so after two sets of stairs, I was completely white and only wanted to sit down. The pace was just too fast for me and the anemia…….sigh……once I could stop and take a couple deep breaths I was good again, but there wasn’t time for that until they got me outside. Once outside, we were taken to a pre-arranged place and role was taken. This was for guests and all. KUDOS organizers for training your people well!! They did good in my book!
