In a twist of cosmic irony, there are actual photos of the troopers at this event looking at my clearance posting on the forums, but because it wasn’t an Induction Event, I’m once again acting as a spotter.
Still, given the amount of kids running around, asking for autographs from the folk in costume I had a lucky escape. It’s hard enough to SEE short people in those helmets, never mind take the lid off a pen and sign your name for them in a crowd of dozens.
The accommodations at the venue we were given were beyond first class and we were superbly looked after. A large number of people had trekked up to Dundee from down south for the event and it was great to meet and renew some acquaintances while there and the social afterwards was incredible.
