It didn’t start off on a high note, however. Several of us arrived at the venue a little bit before 11:00am in order to set up the event. Three of us (and it happened to be we three members of the Board of Directors of Feral Fixers; Kurt, Regina and myself) went up to the building entrance to open up the door so we could begin bringing stuff in. Regina had the key to the door; she put it in the lock, turned it and….. the key broke off in the lock! She didn’t turn it hard, she didn’t try to jimmy it (I was watching), it just broke!
Geez, what do we do now?
Regina dialed the venue's emergency number while Kurt worked on getting the door open without a key. I’m happy to say that he succeeded (obviously lessons learned from a mis-spent youth :)) and we were off and running. That was the worst thing which happened to us all day – everything else (well, except for that coffee-pot thingy…) was a success…
I’ll blog more about this event later, but for now, welcome to the Blog!
