Despite my misgivings, everything worked out very well for our show. Lisa arrived about an hour or so before the show, and was fortunately able to find a parking space (a wonder on a Friday evening at this hotel -- even more amazing is that it's close to our room). We were able to get our stuff moved to the Olympic room and get the show set up. There was a bit of confusion with panelists, and some last-minute fill-ins, but everything really went very well. I think everyone had a good time, and we gave away lots of prizes. Lisa even videotaped it all. At some point I hope to cut the material together and post some of it, but not tonight.
After the show ended, Lisa and I went and got a bite to eat, brought it back to the room, and moved the video off the video sticks onto the hard drives so she'll have room to use it on Saturday. Now we must get some sleep. We're both very tired.
Great thanks to everyone who came together to make the show a success!
