If the delegates and alternates aren't all there, you could well be seated as a delegate (but don't count on it). I assume the CA delegation can fill vacancies on the spot.
It sounds like there is a lack of enthusiasm and they need to fill some slots. That's good news. I know the California LP has trouble filling its delegate slots--remember these are weighted by population, so it's a big delegation, and people don't all know each other (it's a big state geographically, too). See if you can get a group together (maybe you weren't the only RP supporter on the list).
This is a marathon, not a sprint, and the friends you make (I remember you, from the 2012 convention!) will help in the future, at the very least.
