Hello everyone, this is Rawr reporting from The Gathering 2012…..
Yea…erm…reporting…that doesn’t really sound right. It’s not like I’m a news network or anything…well either way, now that I have some minutes to spare, I thought I’d do a quick roundup of what’s happening so far.
First off, great atmosphere all round. I took the image above just as they switched off the arena lights, leaving only the glow of screens to light the way. If you look towards the roof, you should notice the large whale. This year’s Gathering has a theme which is based heavily on the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and our large friend up there is a ‘subtle’ reference to it.
I’ve been working shifts with KANDU at the Chillout stand, and so far it’s been pretty cool. For the most part I’ve been talking with gamers, giving our coffee and freebies to them and just goofing about. Not a bad way to spend a few hours 😀
Occasionally, this local construction worker would come by and visit.
He reeked of Kentucky Bourbon and kept going on about this mine he had somewhere. I tried to take a few snaps but that just seemed to piss him off.
While he ran off to find his Pick-Axe and Kreeper buddy, I enrolled the help of a local Jedi to sort him out.
That seemed to quiet him down 😀 (Disclaimer: Those events may not have happened…pictures are real though….)
Alright. Got another shift starting soon, so I’m going to finish this RAWRgathering installment here. Things are going pretty fast, so at this rate the next RAWRgathering will probably be a summing up of the remaining two days.
Also! In the last few hours, I have the honor of judging a Comic Competition here at KANDU. We already got one entry in that was funny as hell. A good sign 😀 I’ll report on that next time.
