No, no one we knew, no special situation, nothing out of the ordinary for the most part.
Just observing that, there were more of the "Im just learning types" not kooks, not bad guys, not even always in the way (often though)
Sitting right at peak position, it would take a wave or two for the rest of us to figure out that they had no business being there..
Not only sitting but paddling around everyone to do it (They are just learning, and aping* what everyone else does)
I now its going to be chaos there, always, among friends and enemies, pretty much among everyone.
But add in a handful of total beginners and it actually becomes even more dangerous for everyone involved...
