I drank to much. My memory is fuzzy and I apologize to the two "unknowns" in the photo, you aren't really unknown - its just that I can't remember your names. I blame the noise and the alcohol. The photo was taken by my wife and it was still early in the evening, more people came and went as the night went along. Turamarth Elrandir also showed up at some point with his family, and Veskrashen and his wife Sheeana al-Seyefa among many others.
Having finally made it to Fanfest and now my very first local Eve meet, I can tell you honestly that I have the bug now. Meeting actual humans that also enjoy Eve, or used to in some cases, is pretty gosh darn awesome. Kudos to Sugar for putting this on and for being an incredibly amazing human being. I hope to be able to make more of these in the future. Not just in Washington, but in other places as well.
I encourage everyone reading this to check out Eve Meet and see where the next meet-up near you might be. And if there isn't one, you should really think about hosting. It doesn't have to be a big deal like Eve Vegas or Eve Down Under to be fun, heck Saturday night was just a bunch of people showing up at a restaurant for the evening.
I had a lot of fun and had some great conversations, not all of which were about Eve.
And the next day I even got to see some real spaceships at the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum in Washington.
