If you have never been to Dragon Con, it's difficult to define.
This year, 77,000 attendees flooded downtown Atlanta, with tracks and events spanning 5 hotels and the America's Mart. We hosted our LTE Bridge event in "Full Convention" layout, including a pipe+drape backdrop, updated splash lighting, and many, many touchscreens. We opened Friday morning signups at 9AM sharp. By Friday afternoon, all 50+ mission slots were full through to Monday afternoon! We didn't charge extra this year: it was complimentary with the price of any convention entry badge. However, there were some crews we could have charged admission to watch, like these guys: This couple asked if we could bring the bridge to their wedding: so our next outing could be a celebration of geeky matrimony! Then it happened: the pinnacle of "is this REALLY HAPPENING," as I'm giving the crash course orientation "speech" to a new crew... Anyone recognize the captain/sovereign there? That's .

Will post operational AAR later. *re-drops mic* __________________ ---- Visit us at http://www.ltebridge.com
