So I went to TARcon tonight.
Tyger, Mr. Tyger and Treacle were also there, but were in a different area for most of the evening (I took the more expensive dinner option). People were friendly, though I didn't go out of my way to socialize.
Watching the show with a noisy group was a lot of fun.
Every single one of the racers and Phil showed up after their CBS party. This was surreal and exciting. Several previous racers were there, too, but since I started watching fairly recently, I don't know for sure who they were (I'll read TWOP threads for confirmation). I did see Drew, Zach, Steve, and Avi.
The current racers were unfailingly polite, nice, enthusiastic, quite attractive, and happy to pose for endless photos with gleeful attendees. Their family members (several brought parents or other relatives) were also enjoying all the attention.
I don't have a camera (or a cell phone - must get a combo of both soon), but my tablemate was nice enough to take pics of me with Phil, Lynn & Alex, and the brothers.
I feel like such a teenybopper.
Update: Here are the pictures. Thanks, Marion! http://www.kodakgallery.com/BrowsePhotos.jsp?&collid=368694453205
