    The good:

    -Making soome incredible friends and solidifying friendships with "the crew".

    -The pictures and media madness

    -Time with the 501st, even if I did spend mist of my time in binders. ;)

    Not having the $$$ or the time to spend more in line, on stuff, and with you all




    It was absolutely fantastic. I will make arrangements to be there for more of it next time.

    And next time, it's just as important to have people staffed up to record TV as it is to have them on staff at the event (on big media nights)

    I don't know the answer to either of those questions. If I had to guess, I'd say "Wherever they wanted" to MJAZ's question, and "Probably the symbol they used for their lineup, the II behind Amadala's symbol" to Void's question.
