Early start today. We were actually an hour earlier than we needed. Today there were several Question and Answer sessions that we wanted to attend. Of course not everyone in our group wanted to go to all the same sessions so several times we were in different ones at the same time.
Saturday is always has more attendance than any other. It was amazing seeing the number of people in line to buy tickets and waiting in long lines to get in the center. I love having our VIP passes because those lines are not for us to stand.
After speaking with several celebrities Lisa and I decided to stop at John Rhys-Davies table to get a picture and ask a few questions. He was very nice and answered all our questions. He was tickling both of us during the pictures.
Next I met with with Jon and Jonathan for the William Shatner's Q&A. He has probably done a thousand of these. He was great and spoke on a lot of subjects along with answering questions. It was great! He spoke on Star Trek, being a pilot, singing at the Grand Ole Opry, and the meaning of life (in a way). I did not think I would ever be able to meet him.
It was great and the Sanger was full including the balcony. Not surprising considering the level of star that he represents. I have not met all the surviving members of the original Star Trek series with the exception of George Takei. Mr. Shatner spoke on many subjects and answered questions. He is very funny.
Back to Pensacon from the Sanger. After talking to more celebrities Lisa and I went to our Photo Op with Mr Shatner.
Lisa and I had a time set for a photo op with him after his Q&A. First we sat and waited above the vendor floor till our scheduled time.
We met up with Julie and Matt to tour the celebrity tables. Karen Allen was wonderful.
One celebrity who surprised us was John Glover. He was very happy to talk and called us over anytime we passed by later in the weekend. As a joke on me he decided that since Lisa had such "fancy nails" that I needed to have some of my nails colored. Lisa comes with her nails painted with TV or Movie designs that always impress the celebrities. Mr. Glover used a red permanent marker to paint them and a few are still slightly pink. You never really know how the celebs will react. On an earlier Pensacon Lisa and I were roped into helping a celeb in playing a joke on another one.
The second Q&A was the Indiana Jones Raiders of the lost Ark Reunion. It was great! The only main actor that did not make the CON was Harrison Ford. Maybe we will see him some year in the future. They bantered back and for with each other and shared a lot of behind the scenes information. We had met all of them on the celebrity floor. Karen Allen and John Reyes-Davies were great to meet.
Julie and Matt were joined by a group of others dressed to show their love for the movie.
For fun I am adding some information from my Fitbit.
