  1. I think they had more shoulder room, in general. I know that the area appeared fairly empty, but reflecting on it, I recall bumping into all my instructors at various points and they always seemed to be in motion.
  2. My feedback is generally positive. We didn't have any major disconnects, and adapted to a few surprises as we went. No sweat. This was our 3rd Reapercon - all at the Embassy. It was good to be 'home' after the past 18 months of shenanigans. I didn't realize how much I needed to check out from the world around me until about Friday. Just a general reminder to myself, more than anything, that I should throttle back more and more often. So I guess that's feedback to myself. I give Hilton/Embassy high marks. The property is now a few years old and holding up well. Our interactions

    Home safe

    We set out a little after 6 this morning and plowed 14.5 hrs straight home, counting stops for driver swaps, gas, dinner, and a really nice picnic lunch at a freshly redone rest area somewhere in Missouri. Denton feels far away already, but we are home safely.
  4. We enjoy a good road trip and look forward to the drive to Denton. It's 16h for us without stops from the eastern midwest. We'll break it up into 2 days - first leg after work Tuesday, driving through the day Wednesday to be onsite in time for the meet and greet. We've had a couple of different formats going home - one year we did it in one shot (never again!) and in 2019 we departed after the Auction and made it as far as Tulsa before finding a hotel. This year I'm using the trip as the milestone wherein I need to have a new vehicle. Will be our shot to break it in 'right.'
  5. As a participant, part of the appeal to me is to get the score and feedback from the Reaper judges while ALSO highlighting the great work of one of the sponsors. I'd be sad if this were changed.

    I've seen kitchen staff at the Denton ES in a bit of cosplay (within the limits of their corporate uniform guidance) and then attend the 'con once they got off work.
  7. I signed on as Stormchaser, but I do have one question.... Why is the rum gone?
  8. We are talking about different things, but this would describe the journey that a few of my projects are on. :) I haven't been at the bench for any significant time since Christmas Day. I could say it was because I got sick (twice!) or that I was waiting on parts/bases (I was!) but the real reason is that as most of us do, I went through a hobby funk.* Not sure I'm entirely cured, but my office is closed today in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. I was just frying a couple of eggs planning my morning. Most of what I'd work on today isn't for RC2020, but my one big project c
  9. Worked a little bit on my main RC2020 entry. I'm still at the gap filling phase, but progress is progress!
  10. This conversation is making me hungry for Whataburger!!
  11. I am seeing rooms available at the AAA rate of $215. Is still a huge price difference, but if people are considering going rogue (i.e. outside the block), you could buy a AAA membership and still be money ahead to buy a lot of paint and minis at the 'con!!!!
  12. From memory, the hotel swag was 1 mini and maybe 1 bottle of paint? Maybe just 1 mini. The swag that comes with the badge purchase is where most things are.
  13. ReaperAHawk said this in another thread: Posted 13 hours ago Hi Y'all! We are sorry that all our blocks of rooms at the Embassy Suites sold out in one hour. This has never happened before....we usually have a couple of months before they all sell out. We were just as surprised today, but happy so many of you are so excited for ReaperCon 2020!! With that said, the popularity of our show has increased every year immensely. That just means we are going to have a fantastic show and I hope everyone can make it. If we are able to get a new room block contract going wi
  14. I worked from home today but did the calendar math wrong (thought the block opened tomorrow). I resisted temptation/distraction all day and didn't boot the personal laptop and things were sold by the time I got online and then I cussed. I was able to book a room for the same dates with the AAA rate and spent some Hilton Points to offset the cost. Rooms CAN be found (or at least could as of 4:30 eastern), but at a much less favorable rate. (Burning points to be onsite is worth it to me, other's situations may dictate otherwise).
  15. Happy Holidays everyone. Be safe out there - eat, drink, and be merry paint minis. This fall has very much been on fast forward for me. It feels like we just got in the car and drove home from Denton and RC2019. Shortly after that, work sent me on several trips rapid fire and we had a couple of other personal commitments through late Sep, all of October, and into November. Stepped straight from that into year-end at work. Taking a few days around Christmas to regroup, and hopefully get some bench time.
