I really felt the love, and I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart; it's been a rough couple of weeks, and I really needed that! I wasn't expecting a LINE to form at the offer of David-hugs!!

I also got to Hoist David while hugging making me the victor! (also I walked The Plank)

The biggest yet. "Official" head count was 35 individuals including RPPR "staff" and people they brought. Ten of those people had never been to an RPPR meet up before.

Never thought of us as "staff" before, but if I had a job that allowed me to be Cap'n Purplescarf and get paid for it...

Aw man, I wish I had been there to get a David hug.
Chados- the, uh... hands of fate.

11 new people, actually.  I was carrying a chair during the count for the meet-up newbies.

I really enjoyed the meet-up - I think I mostly talked to Tadanori, FuzzyDan, and Thesauradon while Thad showed people the yellow sign.  Hearing a David story in person was also great. 

The RPPR seminars I went to were all top-notch - Scary Parrots, Education and Games, the GDW Live one, and Beyond Lawful Good and Evil.  I'm looking forward to when the other couple show up online.  My wife, who has never listened to the podcasts, stopped by several of them and enjoyed them as well, especially Education and BLG&E.

As I mentioned on the GroupMe, here are the pictures I took of the banner heading to the Delta Green panel on Thursday night.

Yeah, it was my first time, and I had a real blast.

Took an hour to get them uploaded but I finally have all the photos I took of the Glancy game up online.

Here's the link :http://imgur.com/a/rW3QD

Sadly my phone died so I couldn't take pictures throughout the whole game, managed to only get half the game. Still, enjoy the pictures! See you all next year!

So the pictures make it look like the game was in one of the event rooms which makes me think it took place during the day and not in the middle of the night till so very late. If that is the case this is a clear violation of the traditions of the RPPR Glancy game and I for one will not stand for this! Next you will be telling me no one died and/or went insane!

Note to self: Arrive early next year and shadow RPPR crew until Glancy game in attempt to join in.

Also the photo of Caleb and David standing, looking at one another feels like the nerdiest wrestling staredown.

I wasn't aware how tall Glancy was until I met him at the Pagan Publishing booth.  I'm 6'4 and not used to looking up at people.  I'm betting he is 6'5 - 6'6.
