EF-15 - Day 0

What a day...

It started off pretty normal, shopping for groceries (i.e. sweets) and a backup battery for my camcorder. On sheer luck the (probably only big) electronics store in Suhl had exactly what I was looking for.

Later I headed to the Ringberg hotel and found the entrance blocked by a semi-truck unloading equipment... at 1:50pm... registration opening was announced at 2pm. Oh well... wait a bit.

During the wait, I let out "Al Shepherd" with his portable pawpet-news camera. He ran the lobby up and down several times over the course of the day. It as fun for me and many other con goers, as nobody believed at first that that camera prop actually WAS taping them... :)
Image quality is less than poor however - color yes but noise like a bad reception. Not sure what I can make of it, I'll try something anyhow.

Recorded a little interview with Ezra... not sure how it'll turn out... Maybe we'll have to tape it again at a later time (sorry KP :( )

I took pictures until the battery of my camera ran dry and videotaped as long as I had enough energy myself... and somebody to watch over my bags (Thanks to Henrieke, Karpour and Yamavu!)

One picture I'll share here: tabbiefox and lokosicek fooling around... and tabbie looking "WTF?"...

EF-15 - Day 1

Opening ceremony today... Apparently Cheetah learned something from last year. Then he was having his little opening speech right between several hungry furs and the BBQ... This time the BBQ started two hours before the opening ceremony :)

I tool lots of pictures and shot quite some video material. Not sure however how it'll turn out. Better be on the lookout for BBFs version anyway: he has better equipment and more people with cameras running around for him ;P Oh, I forgot in the last post: I finally got to meet him and exchange a few words - which is more I could ask of him, because he's a busybusybusy fox right now ;P He also said "You're crazy! I like that!" - which I take as a compliment ;P - and: There might be a nosebeep from Al Shepherd in the con video... who knows?

Anyhow, back to the first day at the con: Towed Ezra to re-do the interview in an unused SIG-room - totally awesome material. Looking forward to edit/send to FPS for the next show.

Briefly met Duncan (the green roo) who had my F.I.B. badge from Cooner - thanks big guy!
Also briefly met - or more likely "was spotted and greeted by" Huskers who was standing in line for the BBQ in front of me... and it WAS quite a line!
