RTOZ 2011For anyone interested, here's a little run down of what my weekend was like.
To start off, you should know I was also working on my own project Red Undead which is no walk in the park.
FRIDAY - Met up with Caiti on Friday afternoon so she could speak to the Siren Visual guys (I set up my booth). - Dropped off Caiti and Beau to the park so they could set up. - Drove Justin to pick up BBQ stuff and drinks. - Enjoyed a refreshing beer (thanks Beau) - Drove back to the shops with Ainsley for more food (there was quite a big turn out). - Helped keep things clean around the bbq and the park (cut finger on broken bottle). - At Crown Casino, made sure Hunter from the US got a huge Long Island for his B'day. - Guided Burnie to potential Black Jack tables in Crown. HOURS SLEEP = 3 FOOD EATEN = 1 sausage
SATURDAY - Booth all day. - The bonus was when I sent my team to get a photo with Burnie, he was awesome enough to sign a magnet for me too.
- Quickly packed down to make it back to hotel. - Rain was a bitch (cabbed it into King Pin) so was a little late (and exhausted). - Listened in on the end of Caiti's briefing. - Set up banners. - Had a few drinks and met a few people. - Sat on registration table with Treb to replace Rhianna (waited for 3 no shows). - Bartenders were super friendly (too friendly!). - Scenes missing - but undoubtedly awesome fun. HOURS SLEEP = ??? FOOD EATEN = 1 McChicken (lunch), 1 cocktail weiner, 1 wedge
Here's a dew photos of the friendly bar staff:
Energy restored. FUN times to the maximum!!
So was there a moral to this story? Yes, there is. A few in fact: - RooTeeth/RTOZ staff are bloody hard workers. - Shots are not the best idea when you're exhausted. - RooTeeth/RTOZ staff know how to party!
