Location
soar at intuĀ Braehead, Glasgow 13:30 – 14:15

Mission Report
What a massive waste of time this event was!

I’m not sure why they’d organise to have us walk in a specific formation only to rearrange the deployment as soon as we start, then suggest we go back to the original plan minutes later.

Between the lighting in the venue not being conductive to having any form of reduced vision, the fact that the majority of people in the area were below chest height, either by dint of being young kids or adults sat down, the uneven loose surface littered with semi-obscured obstacles by way of buckets, spades and balls buried in the sand it was a generally unpleasant experience all in.

It seems a colossal waste of energy from everyone involved to ask us along to a promotional photo-shoot then give us no direction on where to stand to ensure that we’re actually in the field of view of the camera lens, but should have come as no surprise given the lack of organisational skills Showmasters display up here on an annual basis.

41 Star Wars Episode 1 TPM 3D Showing – 10th February 2012

Location
Odeon, Braehead 18:00 – 21:00

Mission Report
A surprisingly pleasant 2012 trooping debut for me, nice to see some of the ISS squad once more. The venue was a bit confined in terms of space though. The foyer of the cinema is large enough however it’s quite cluttered with film advertising stands and the entrance is beside the top of the “up” escalators in Xscape so standing about there means that folk trying to take photos tend to block patrons trying to come up them.

Additionally, the only advertising for Episode 1 was on the wall where you hand over your ticket prior to being directed to the relevant screen, so it wasn’t until they were in and committed to seeing a film that a lot of folk realised why we were all stood about outside!

Far, far, too many photos especially on Julie’s camera to post them all up but my favourite of this bunch has to be the unintentional Sandtrooper facepalm…
