Well there was another great turnout on Saturday, plenty of cosplayers from the Masquerade show and the night activities were amazing at the Cyberkareoke and the 5 Doctors, mystery theater style where 3 guys make comedic remarks during the course of the movie. That was played to a pack room of at least 300.
The Cyberkareoke went on beyond the 2am hour (that was about the time this Time Lord decided to retire). There were many people there just having fun dancing and singing to their favorite Britian bands. Then they did the Time Warp as well as Bohemian Rhapsody for group participation. Everyone was having fun in this event geared towards any family hence, the many kids that were there as well.
Today should be just as an exciting day as all 3 doctors will be here signing as well as the companions from the last 2 days not to mention Freeman Agyeman who is here on a Sunday pleasing her fan base.
All in all this was a great convention ran by the many volunteers and Gene Smith. I know the staff tried to accommodate everyone with the auto and photo graphs but not everyone could get in to participate as the crowd was overwhelming. Perhaps next year the VIP's may be able to extend their photo and autograph signing times by at least 1.5 hours, it appeared that the 2 hour window to accomplish such things each day may not have been enough to satisfy all of the convention goers, I even bare witnessed to some fans yelling and getting upset when the staff had to change the procedure a bit to accommodate the masses. Other than that, this convention was a hit and will plan on borrowing my TARDIS for next years event... cant wait to see who will be there. Until then... G E R O N I M O !!!!
