Saturday started stormy but that didn’t last long. By the time I rolled into Area 51 at about 10:45 the skies had cleared and the temperatures were on the rise. Which meant that the best place to be was inside. Cake was on the schedule and as if on cue the crowd showed up. Erin, Mike and Wayne with the help of family members and customers had sales specials posted, cake and ice tea (man, I’m still coming off the sugar rush), tables with for the customers with items that they wanted to trade or sell and plenty of games in session.
Brian Denham was manning the pen and I got to listen in on some great conversations about the comic industry. It was great to meet Charles from Fellowship of Fools and look forward to listening to his podcasts. After cake, Erin started calling out raffle ticket numbers and gave away some sweet prizes.
Everyone had smiles, even the folks that didn’t win anything. Of course, on the chance of sounding cheesy but not caring, there aren’t any losers because Area 51 is set to be around for a long long time. Sorry, Erin, you’re gonna have this headache for a while, if we have anything to do with it.
Here’s the link to the album.
