The First days before the con:
As some of you may know, i started my travel to EF already on the 26th of August. I went to Junmaps home. Later that evening we went to a good friend of him to watch some football. Next day was AWESOME! I always had the wish to try playing the drums once and this weekend i finally could. It was SOOO much fun and i seem to have some kind of talent 😀 (yay i’m good at something). On Monday we bought some „stuff“ we needed for the con. Some food etc. Go early to bed to be ready for the next day.
Day 1: Early arrival day The stupid alarm rang at 5:30 to tell us we should stand up and get ready to go. So we did. We grabed some food. Everything runned smoothly so we could start our Trip as planned 0700. There were no traffic jams so we were perfectly in time in Magdeburg… and had to search nearly 20 minutes for our parking lot. But in the moment we reached the Hotel we were in time and it was 0905 as we wen’t into the lobby. Aannnddd there was a HUGE load of work. The stagecrew was low on menpower so we joined and started to build up the stage together with Dhary and 8h later we could do the job we came for xD bringing up the the lights in the middle of the hall for the big banner picture. Between all that i somewhere met Flam alias Draconigen in the main hall waiting to check in. After all that and a small break to get something to eat we had the Security Meeting where we were instructed how the next days would run. After all that we dropped dead into the bed around 2300 and called it a day.
Wednesday: After getting Up and getting some breakfast there was even more work to do and more stuff to get done and running. Then there was the opening ceremonie we had to set up, plan and take our securitie positions. Cheetah rolled in on a wodden chariot pulled by 4 fursuiters while epic music from FoxAmoore was played. After the Ceremony there was (like always on the first day) nothing more to do so we could relax and go eat some Pizza at the near Pizzeria LaPiazza.
Thursday: 10 O’clock, our first security shift infront of the dealers den 1. We got up around 9:30 and went directly to our shift. Thankfully Codewolf brought me english breakfast (Earl Grey 2 pieces of sugar and milk) which was AWESOME to have (thank you VERY much) and good to get my engine running. After the shift there was only a short breake where we went outside to hunt us some breakfeast. Next shift infront of the art show. Next point on the timeline was Your First Furry Convention held by Uncle Kage and our HoS Gyroplast and Dhary. I had 3 little times where i could assist the show and it was an awesome feeling. Next point hm… between the shifts i was walking around annoying some people in the Daily Eurofurence office. Aaannnd Yep here was the last shift for this day. Entrance safety of 2 The Ranting Gryphon LIVE. Because of our duty and that some supersponsors didn’t want to use there reserved seats we had the pleasure to sit in the first row and watch the show 😀 we ended the day with a dinner in the Steakhouse and fell into bed afterwards.
Friday: As an actuel Event here was to mention was only the Fursuitparade that we guided. The people of Magdeburg where very friendly towards those fluffy peoples. The parade went very smooth and we had no major issiues. A nother point in the glorious history of the MI:3 Team. After that it was FOOD TIME again 😀 i said to myself that i wanted to eat this awesome Maritim Burger again and Junmap bought hisself a Pizza. I realy think that for 9€ you get the best Burger you can. You are full and don’t feel like eating anymore, not like you eat one of those McDonald burgers. And the taste is… AWESOME if you haven’t tried it yet, do so. In the evening in direct rivalry there was the Rock and Rome Concert and the 2 Thank you donators panel. I donated so i went to the show. It was cool to see Kage and 2 off their usual programm, ask questions and hear some storys that i never heared before. We had to leave the room around 22 o’clock but we weren’t done, so we took our group directly into the main hall and went on. Sadly there is no picture availeble from top down. Must be a funny picture this pile of people in the middle of the hall. This event went deep into the night until we all were tired and went into our beds.
Saturday: Soo the last day of the convention was coming . First choice for me was the DJ Panel to get some more knowledge and learn some new tricks but directly afterwards with no space between i had my last shift on the motorfurs meeting on the car park infront of the Hotel. Then there was some free time and the beginning of the Pawpetshow which had some problems on start. Directly afterwards the chairs were put away and the Big Blue Dance started and damn…. it was an awesome party 😀 I went into the pianobar and everyone was just partying about the awesome Con. Sooo… thats all i have to say now xD I had an awesome party with all the others on this day and went to bed… late.
Sunday; The last day in the Maritim. Half of the people were leaving the rest would stay the „late departure“ day. This day nothing big happend because the Con officially is „ended“. In the evening the Dead Dog Party started and DAMN that was i night xD i was drunk es hell and the party went on and on. It was the awesomest day of the con to see all the Staff dancing/drinking and having fun 🙂 I hope it will be like this on next Euro Furence.
So… i finally made it again xD 3/4 of a Year without giving ANY information about me… i hope you like this a bit and i will publish some more Entrys in the next few weeks.
