Well, Thunder 2014 has come and gone. I figure it’s time for a recap of the events that transpired. I didn’t get on the volunteer squad this year which is probably good due to some family complications. Everyone is fine now, but it made attending Thunder a challenge. However, I do thank my family for working with me and I managed to attend Friday evening, all day Saturday and a small part of Sunday.
Pride is over. This was the first time I was in attendance. Usually, I run into a schedule conflict and am unable to attend. In addition to this being my first year attending, I also marched in the parade with the leather contingent. It was a tad awkward simply due to the fact that I don’t formally belong to any of those groups. I mean, I know people in each but I don’t actually belong. I’m not a Denver Boy of Leather (yet), I’m certainly not a Denver Girl of Leather, I’m not a puppy nor a member of that group, and I don’t formally follow the Master/slave contest (though I attended it this year). All I know is that I am leather so the leather contingent is where I need to march. I had several swells of pride while I marched which was very exciting. There was a lot of support coming from the wings. It was very refreshing to see that people don’t hate us.
It is the Thunder season. It is time for the Thunder 2014 Countdown. You can look at the side bar for the actual countdown but I’m getting excited. They posted the schedule for the classes. There is ONE class I MIGHT attend, but I’m more looking forward to dungeon time. My partner wants us to pre plan our scenes. Admittedly, I’m not a big fan of this because it disarms me from doing a surprise scene that is silly as all get out.
Still, I’ll do it simply to play at Thunder. I won’t go into last year, but needless to say I was disappointed. Hopefully the same thing doesn’t happen this year. I plan on playing, and it will be epic.
Hope to see some of you there! It should be fun. Friday I’ll be at the registration table (and possibly Saturday) so I may be checking some of you in if you do attend. This year, we are also doing a TNG meetup for anyone in the organization. We’d love to see fellow TNGers attend and see how many of you there are! Sometimes, with the sheer number of people, you just can’t grasp how many of them are in a particular group. The dungeon does make the event seem lightly attended simply because there is so much room.
I hope to see all of you at the event. If you do happen to see me (except of course if I am playing) feel free to say hi and, if I don’t know you personally, let me know that you know me through my blog or social media presence. I’d love to meet my readers.
If you are interested in the event, be sure to pre-register to get cheaper tickets. Let’s start the Thunder 2014 Countdown!
