    Want to go to the biggest Stargate convention in the United States? GateWorld has your tickets, and all you have to do is let us know why you believe they should be yours!

    Creation Entertainment is holding their annual Official Stargate Convention August 27 to August 29 at the Westin O'Hare in Chicago -- and through their generosity, GateWorld is pleased to be able to give away a pair of "Preferred Weekend" passes to the con. Details about the con were recently published.

    This prize package, with a retail value of $500, will give you and a guest reserved seating at the convention, tickets to a music concert featuring Atlantis actor Jason Momoa, a karaoke party hosted by Robert Picardo, complimentary in-person autographs by more than half of the Stargate celebrities attending, and much more!

    What do you have to do to win? Post in this forum contest thread (register if you haven't already) about why you believe you should win. The thread will be open until this Saturday evening, August 14 at 6:00 P.M. eastern time, and the winner will be contacted immediately after. If you enter, be sure to be watching your forum inbox for a message from us around that time. If the winner does not respond within 48 hours to accept and claim their prize, a new winner will be selected.

    As always, remember that if you know you won't be able to attend, please do not enter. Also, the contest winner receives tickets to the convention only. Travel and lodging accomodations are the responsibility of the winner and are not included as part of the prize package.

    Good luck, and see you at the convention! And as always, a very special thank you to Creation Entertainment for their continued generosity and support of GateWorld!

    I should get the tickets because in all the time I have been a SG fan I have never been able to go to a con. I have wanted to go for so long and if I get the tickets it would truly be a dream come true.

    I think I should win because I'm a huge stargate fan and never been to any stargate convention. I own every SGA/SGU/SG1 Episode and all the movies. I have all the patches collected and framed in my room. Would love the opportunity to go to this convention.

    Howdy

    I can remember staying up late Sunday nights just to watch an episode of SG1. I have watched every episode of each series ( even to single season cartoon). I have always wanted to meet the cast and go to one of the conventions for awhile now . Winning these tickets would make my year .

    Thanks and Gig'em

    I’m sure everyone’s got good reasons for wanting to go to the convention,
    And all the reasons for which I’d give anything to go, are too numerous to mention.

    I’ve written more than two hundred poems about the Stargate shows,
    How large that number will one day be, heaven only knows.

    I’d give anything to write for the Stargate Novels Team,
    And to actually meet Joe Flannigan would be such a dream.

    Jason Momoa and David Hewlett are my two other favorite Atlantis guys,
    As I wanted to be an archaeologist I’d love to meet who played Daniel Jackson-The Wise.

    I even write fan-fiction, because I can’t get enough of the show,
    I’d have a million stories if only time would permit me to you know.

    I’ve written reviews for near every Fandemonium Stargate Novel,
    To go to this convention I’d be dang near willing to grovel.

    I’ve never had the money to go to a Stargate Convention before,
    Though there are very few things that I’ve ever wanted more.

    I’m no better than anyone else, so why should I be the one to win?
    Well, I can’t really answer that, but I’d be more grateful than most anyone’s ever been!

    There is no good reason why I should win. It would simply be convenient.

    I live & breath everything Stargate. I've spent about $900+ alone on movies, every season available on dvd, t-shirts etc...I also have an appointment set in September to get a Stargate themed tattoo done on me. I watch Stargate literally everyday, I'm always browsing blogs, videos on youtube etc that have anything to do with Stargate. I'm sure there are other people way more deserving of winning this but I thought I'd give it a shot.

    Throughout the years, I have forced all my friends and some strangers to watch the show even if they didn't like it. Till this day they are surprised that I never attended any of the stargate conventions or met any of the actors. The shame.

    I should win because I am a huge fan of all three franchises yet, with three kids, a mortgage, and a full time job which includes working on many weekends, I have never had the time or money to go to a convention. However, my parents live in Chicago and my mother could watch the kids and my father would love to come with me so, as that con also happens to fall on one of my weekends off, if I won the tickets I could actually finally attend a Stargate convention.

    Watching Stargate has been a haven for my husband and I. It is the 45 minutes we take out of our day to be together and set all of our responsibilities aside. We have 2 children with special needs. Our 4 year old has Sensory Processing Disorder. This means that her nervous system has no filter and never will. She takes in everything from the world around her and cannot sort it out. She hears everything, smells everything, etc. She won't even be near her sister's sippycup because of the smell. Not only are her traditional 5 senses effected, but there are others that I never even knew about. Her vestibular sense and proprioceptive sense also don't function properly. Light touch to her skin in painful. She doesn't realize where her body is in space. These things are just the tip of the iceberg. She now sees a psychiatrist for anxiety and behavioral disorders stemming from the SPD. She reacts with the fight or flight response to many of the stimuli she can't sort out. Unfortunately she's a fighter. She would rather scream, hit, kick, etc. that be exposed to a frightening stimuli such as the smell of chocolate. She has been banned from drop off programs because the staff cannot handle her if she gets scared or angry. This is just one of our children that we use Stargate to take a break from.
    Our second daughter is 2 years old. We thought we were having a healthy baby. She was born with multiple heart defects that required her to have open chest surgery at 6 days old. Her body temperature was dropped by 50% by surrounding her in ice packs, her sternum was cracked open, and her heart was stopped while she was put on a bypass machine. For 1 week we couldn't hold her and for 2 weeks she couldn't eat. In her first year of life she battled bronchitis for 4 months. She has continued to need medical attention and may still require further surgeries as she gets older.
    We love our children, but our lives are filled with caring for them and helping them get through day to day living. What a treat it would be to get a way for a weekend an immerse ourselves in something we enjoy so much. We had actually wanted to go, but cannot afford the tickets with all of the medical expenses we have incurred. We also have never been away from the children since they were born. We really could use this time without them to refuel. THank you for considering us.

    Can't think of a good reason for me to win, but I really really really want to go and this is the first time I'll get the chance to go. And it's the perfect birthday gift for my best friend. I would definitely be doing it for her more than me. She's an amazing person and deserves so much more than what I can afford to give her. Between work and family she has almost no time to herself and is the type of person that would give you the shirt off her back to help a friend. I owe her a lot and this would go along way to repaying her for everything. That and the drive from Columbus, Ohio to Chicago isn't that bad. Thanks for the consideration. Jamie

    I should go to Chicago for the Creation event because I am a loyal fan who doesn't get out much... too much work.

    I am new to fandom and have never really wanted to attend a convention, but I've been reading and listening to the experience of others on GateWorld and it has peaked my curiosity. One thing I know I would love about going to a convention would be the opportunity to be surrounded by so many other fans who love Stargate as much as I do. I wouldn't get strange looks when I said things like "I want to live, I want to experience the universe, and I want to eat pie" for a change.

    And I have a very good friend who would just die to meet Michael Shanks. It would be so fun to see that (not my friend dying, just the meeting MS part).

    I should because I've never been to a Creation con or any SG con, and I've never taken my wife to Chicago.

    Well I guess I have to give my sad sack story too. I feel sorry for you guys having to pick.

    I'm a 22 year old college student and my dad and I are longtime fans of Stargate. We first started watching the series in SciFi weekdays reruns back in like 2002 or 2003. Then one day we were at best Buy and Stargate: Extended Edition was on sale so we figured we'd start from the beginning. From there the seasons followed, and my mother even got in to it. She learned how to work the DVD player so she could watch Stargate before heading to nursing night shifts. I'd come home from my senior year in high school to mom walking out the door saying she watched a whole disc! And she usually hates science fiction. I even got a Star wars nut really into the show. She loved it and so do her younger brothers, but she won't show them seasons 9 onward because she thinks her mother would get pissed about Vala. lol

    Anyway, back in February my dad and I thought about going to this convention as we live right near the Twin Cities. Wouldn't be a bad drive. A few weeks later though I took a bad fall on my college campus and broke my right ankle. That required a surgery that didn't even happen till a month later. So I didn't walk for 3 months and now I have plates in my leg. The bills are enormous. No way we can afford to go unless most of the trip is paid for.

    After spending 3 months cooped up in the house all but one or two days of the week (because I couldn't drive until I was no longer wearing a cast) I could really use a vacation. Even though I'm walking again (that's an activity loaded with new sensations now) I still feel trapped in my own home. I'd love to go on a trip with my dad. That's something we haven't been able to do since I was a kid

    I believe I should go because I have never had a chance, and I live in Chicago! Every year around August I get excited to go, and then something comes up. I have even bought tickets before and had to cancel!
    I have been a Stargate fan since the movie premiered back in 1994. I would love a chance to finally meet some of my favorite actors on the show.

    Thanks and keep up the great work,

    -John
