I had a few drinks while K did his rehearsal with Allen and Rachael St. James. Hospitality was rather lightly attended, mostly by people submitting protocol books. Didn't look too good for attendance, but since coronation was in the Odd Fellows Hall, at least it wouldn't be too crowded.
So much for that idea.
Even though hospitality was pretty quiet, everybody showed up for Coronation itself. The room was packed solid and kept getting busier.
Coronation started an hour late, because the folks with the protocol box showed up an hour late.
In spite of the crowd and the delay, the show actually went very well. Long, but well. The MCs breezed through protocol (sometimes a bit too quick for the people getting ready to walk). There were a lot of command performances, but they were, to a one, excellent.
Ava and Allen beat "no" and were crowned Empress 37 and Emperor 37.
Still, I could have done with getting home before midnight.
