Kick The Sky's avatar There were a lot of people I didnt get to meet that I wanted to meet and I think having the screen names on the badges would have helped facilitate that. Redman, I didnt know that was you moving the tables, if I would have known that was you I would have came up and introduced myself. I also wanted to meet GregLeg and ArrowGuy but never saw them. It was a bit intimidating to walk up and just introduce myself to someone I guess because a lot of people were in their little cliques and I didnt feel right just barging in and saying, hi, I am KickTheSky, blah blah blah, ect... ad nausium...

But as I stated before, I still had a wonderful time and I hope to maybe meet more folks at SRM in two weeks.

I designed and made the name badges, so you'll have to yell at me, Chitown! :) We decided to put cities and states instead of screen names this year (there wasn't room for all three). We will probably use screen names at BeastBuzz in June though. Something to look forward to!

I liked my name badge because i put it in a protector. The thing that sucks is I forgot it at my hotel. I wanted to keep it as a souvenier. :( By the way GREAT pictures Steph!

Gee, could that be due to the fact your name is Greg LEGowski? ROFL.... ;)


Well, there IS that... ;)

That was my assigned username when I worked at Microsoft (11 years ago -- damn I'm old), and I liked it enough that I've stuck with it ever since.

Screen names for badges is the way to go in the future...especially for people like me. I don't have a first name.

Great pics. I sort of liked the anonimity, just because I'm sure I've ticked a few people off in my posts, and this way I sort of get a chance to make a "new" first impression, before they pass judgement due to my screen name.

By the way, Prodjbp, I'm glad I intorduced myself to you, because I've been thinking you were Prod-jbp instead of Pro-dj-bp (as it is pronounced), but that's probably because I do production for Clear Channel in Youngstown, and we call all the production rooms "prod" rooms.

Goccvp1,

I hear Clear Channel owns the world. Its a graet Co. to work for.

BP stands for Boston Productions Mobile D.J. Show. It's something me, my Wife & Son do on weekends. But its not your average set up, big lights, big sound, you know, Martin ,Jem, JBL, Denon, Numark. So when theres no gig its off to ride coasters.

I'm a X-Ray Service Tech by day.

Hope to see you at BeastBuzz

I had a great time everyone, And besides I got to see a psyco go nuts in Union Station Sunday Evening before my train left.

I had full intent to get back to the Hospital, where I left my car, and go right to work for 8 hrs., but at 1:30 AM I decided, it wasnt good to work on Defibrilators while asleep.

Any one of the "Big Blue Butt" gang still have a stiff neck from our "experience" ;)

Raven-Phile's avatar HA! The "Big Blue Butt" gang!

I think it's official.

I'm the one "holding up" Deja Vu - Steph made me do it, I swear.

It was a fun day. I think I'm going to attend Beast Buzz. Probably see you guys there, too.

Seriously, thanks for stepping forward and moving all those tables for me. I definitely appreciate it. And for those of you who watched - shame on you for making Redman do all the work!


Hey! I helped a little bit when it was time to move the tables back to their original position, but Redman seemed to be doing a fine job all by himself for most of it.

:-)

You we're very good natured about the whole thing Stephanie... it was quite amusing.

I've posted some of my own photos and a very long trip report, as well. Give it a read if you have the time. I had a great time at Coasterbuzz Con despite the fact I was functioning on only 1/2 hour of sleep.

Dave, oh man! The drive back to Michigan on Sunday proved difficult without being able to turn my neck. Still had trouble lifting it off the pilow this morning, too...ouch!

Ah well, it was an interesting experience :). People's shoes are pretty fascinating if you look at them for extended periods of time.

My shoulders and shins are a little sore still, but other than that, I'm showing no real ill effects from my Big Blue Butt experience.

I suspect the soreness is at least as much due to the 11 rides I had before the shutdown, anyway...

Thank You Coaster Buzz for that fun time. Six Flags is my home park and my dad and I never close the park, but we were haveing so much we did close it. We finshed the day with the Wizzard {Good Night Ride} and Triple Play.

I have to say, Six Flags did a good job moving out the trains. I noticed not to many people were not in the fastlane line except V2, which helps. This was a time of my life. Thanks again Jeff and Stephanie.

Thank you, Dustin Harter T-19 to BeastBuzz

P.S People going to CoasterMania, if your going to BeastBuzz also I want to hear every thing about TTD. I will be going in October to close out my coaster season.

I was the kid wearing the Just Bring It T-Shirt. THANKS

Alot of thanks to Mr Jeff and Misses Jeff for this great event. It was my first, and at my home park, so it couldn't have been a better day!
For those who were wondering I was the kleenex sporting blue wheelchair guy that Arrow Guy was lurching over :)
The ride-ops were great and let us ride every other train, since we couldn't weave throught the que. We had 7 rides in ERT (including the doomed 15 minute blue butt of death break-down), and we hit 13 by the end of the weekend.
I was humbled to ride with the famous car-uh, and I thank her and melissa for riding with us and taking away from the endless spew of arrow dynamics facts that are consistantly poppoing out of Brad like the glue-substance out of those horrific ice cream bars. ;)
Now... if I could only get the Demon theme music out of my head, it is of course a tradition to listen to it on the way to SFGAm if Arrow Guy is in the car.
Silly Dood... you're only food.....
for the demon.....

Now.. when's Chris Sawyer going to add large half loops to the flyer so I can make my RCT guests see spots too?
