So the one night event was turned into a mini 'Cruxcon2013(part1)' that started and ended at my place but had many little mini adventures thoughout.
So we started out on the Friday when Budger, Pye & Drayggon all arrived at mine where they'd be crashing over and after a rather brief session of laughing at the terrifying old suits from Disneyland in the 1950's we decided that we would head off to the Cinema and see the new 'Evil Dead' and as a fan of the originals I can say I really enjoyed it, they made a nice lot of reference's to the originals without just rehashing them, the film stand up well on it's own and I would recommened going to see it if you liked the originals if just to see what a nice job they did with this new version.
After this we decided to go get a slab of pork for dinner, it was a large chunk of pork, a very very large piece of pork, a lump so big it lasted the four of us for two whole days, it was a chunk that will be infamously known as the "3am Pork" for quite some time.
Saturday, Event day, the day Dray arranged for a quick motor fur session, the day myself and Budger made the quick run in the car to the Parcel Force to pay the customs on and collect my new Crux head, after the customs guys pulled some numbers randomly out of their collective buttocks we paid and returned with the head and had time for a quick trial run while Dray and Pye headed on down to the yha, and Dray went off for his motorfur session.
Myself and Budger followed down about half hour later and after taking a couple brief distraction stops, one for the lady-boys of Bangkok and another for the Italian car/motor bike show at St. Niks market, we finally made it to the yha and dropped off the suiting stuff and caught back up to Dray and Pye.
Next event was the 'Herding of the furs' where you had to guide the pack to the local pub with out losing any along the way which was achieved with minimal loses, I believe they all got there eventually, least we didn't find any cute accidents on the way there or back so no-one was run over afaik.
At the Gryphon everyone settled down had a drink or two and got some food, of which all the fancy meat burgers were sold out within 10 minutes of everyone getting there (Beefy Bison mMmmmmm) and many variations of connect four and identify the beer mat were played, the pink/purple duck one was my fave there.
Eventually everyone made their way back to the yha for more chatter and drinks before the registration opened and everyone made their way in (opened early to allow the folks staying and the early arrivals like our group to get in so as not to block up the front area near the bar as there were a lot of other people staying at the yha) - oh and the folks who were there will get this "Rolf Harris does not approve!"
Anyhow an hour later the first of the DJ's took to the decks and after the first gathering and opening and a fantastic night was had by all for the rest of the night.
The one interruption was from an ex-employee of the yha which was expertly dealt with by the Staff and Security of both the event and the yha so as to cause little disruption to the rest of the attendees (I won't go into any details).
So yeah Frantic Eufuria 7 was a roaring success the DJ's were fantastic just as they were at FE6 and the suit went down well with the other attendees I got to speak with in between the bouts of random flailing that was me trying to dance still sore today but it was totally worth it.
After the event we walked back home crashed out in front of the TV and eventually all went to bed, full of joy, drink and pork.
Sunday after a spell we eventually all woke up and had at least 3 breakfasts each and had fun mst3k'ing the TV before showing Pye and Dray 'The ABC's of Death' and eventually having to get everything packed up and say the goodbyes until next time.
So here I am typing this up for the journal, still a little stiff and sore in the arms but having has a fantastic weekend. Next stop Confuzzled 2013!
