Collectormania 15 - 6th & 7th June, 2009

First of all, i have to apologise for the quality of the pictures and then the so-few that i took at CM15. 
It will become self evident why,when you see the cubbyholes where the autographs were taken and how an actual entrance/exit gate was pressed into service as the main photographic area.  There were SO MANY people that after a while, i simply gave up and stopped.  If i had waited until there was a break in the traffic or when the crowds had thinned to try and take some shots of the guests, i'd be waiting still...
There are at least pictures of Messrs Nimoy, Fillion, Browder, Brooks & Gorman - pity about the aging groupie hanging on their collective arm!  What a loverley bunch of coconuts!  Well worth the effort... :D

Next year, Stuart promised me, it will be SO much better as the hall will be finished and a lot of the second tier of building will be done and may even be finished too?  The proposed hotel will be built literally around the stadium and will be the Hilton Double Trees? if i got the name right.  i just sorta fell into conversation with him and he was a really sweet man.  i told him i was a regular and came to every one now - since James started coming, what was it CM7?  He was concerned in case people were not going to come out to the Stadioum and when i said i would keep coming, actually said, 'Thank you very much' to my surprise.

It does need to be done as at the moment, it's open to the elements; the wind rushes through and when it rained, it got pretty damn cold if you stopped moving, even for me.  You could see the guests well bundled up in their coats, with bedspreads tucked around their knees and one or two heaters pressed into service where possible.  i was photographed in my jacket on both days, bit too cool to take it off!
It had been fairly quiet the day before but Saturday was like a river in flood and it wasn't a lot less on Sunday either.  They had a damn fine turnout.

i'm in the process of doing a proper report and will post it in the next day or so, just wanted to touch base and say my pitiful photos are up!
Have a great week, y'all!
