I unfortunately didn't get his callsign, but a big thanks to the tall, bearded, kilt-wearing IRT who helped me on Thursday afternoon. I had no idea where to pick up my AA badge, and after being tossed between a few other IRT members, he went above and beyond by kindly walking me right to where I needed to go, and even made sure I had help keeping the doors open as I walked in and out during setup. Thank you!
Also, to all of the kind IRT folks(and AA staff in general)--thank you for making sure I knew who to go to if I had any issues or questions. They made set up/tear down and my overall experience in the AA a complete and total pleasure.
Last year as a normal con-goer I only had one (minor) negative experience with IRT staff in the AA when I had just gotten out of the line and went into the AA/Dealers area, only to be rudely told to get out because they were closed. This year though, the IRT ushering people out were much more polite and friendly to con-goers, which I really appreciated both as a con-goer and an artist trying to make last-minute sales.
Also a big thanks to Amazon(I am 99% sure that's her callsign) for being so helpful. I remember admiring her crowd/line-control skills last year during registration, as well as on Thursday this year, and I just wanted to give her a shoutout.
All in all, I think IRT did a great job this year with handling all of the issues that pooped up. I thank you all for your time, patience, and overall helpfullness/kindness. I hope I run into you all next year!
