    It was great yesterday

    - seeing all those familiar faces, the expected and the unexpected ones
    - getting to know some new people (please be patient when I might not remember your (forum)name, I'm bad with names). Just hadn't the chance to talk to everybody.
    - Frank Cassini sat at our table for a brief time - he is a nice guy.

    The plan for today: breakfast, getting some fresh air and then starting the con fun.

    Had a great day yesterday. Wonderful to meet up with old friends and new!

    Really enjoyed the location tour, I finally got to see Bordertown (A Hundred Days/Beast of Burden), that was a nice unexpected surprise. Lynn Smith tried to choose locations that you can't get into without prior arrangement so got to see some places you wouldn't see otherwise!! It was just a little weird going back to the area of Vancouver I live in, only to go back to the Hilton afterwards, have a great time at the get together dinner and going back to Maple Ridge again, lol!

    Well, back into the car now and off to Burnaby for more Stargate fun!!! I'm going to try and take notes and do the panel reports for this last Stargate con.

    Official Final GateWorld Dinner Sign-Up
    Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 8pm
    Earl's -- 4361 Kingsway (just around the block from the hotel)



    It's officially time to start planning for what will (sadly) be the final official GateWorld dinner in Vancouver. Our home for the past several years (Sammy J Peppers) closed their doors, so I was tasked with finding a new and last home for us that was nearby and could accomodate all of us. It wasn't an easy job.

    Prices for menu items are mostly comparable to previous years. Attending the dinner does not mean you HAVE to eat. The potential size of this year's group -- between forum members, special guests (some are con guests, some are NOT), and Stargate crew -- means that eating may need to be staggered no matter how we do it. Rest assured though, between the spacious lounge area we'll have, the cast and crew drop-ins I'm setting up, potential prize giveaways and the later closing time (11pm)...we're all going to make this final dinner one not to forget.

    To sign up, simply reply to this post, add your forum name in the appropriate area, and remove the quote tags. It's as simple as that. Please also indicate if you plan on bringing guests (+1, +2, etc.). Extra guests are fine, but only forum members can win any potential prizes we giveaway.

    Finally, Earl's has stated that giving them a menu list of our choices is unnecessary. However, as an aid to both them and us, we're doing it anyway. After reviewing the menu off their site, please PM mamasue9 with your items. She'll be keeping tabs over the next 10 weeks.

    Can't wait to see all of you in Stargate's hometown one final time!

    It is good to see you all arriving in dribs and drabs, getting there safely, all-be-it with a little drama here and there. Have a great time and don't forget to stop for just one moment and say "WOW! I am really here!"

    Glad to hear that you are going to write the reports once again. You do a really great job with that. But make sure you are enjoying yourself as well. You are there to have fun so don't feel it will be expected. I will soak up the con feel from anything that is posted.

    Unfortunately, it is too late. The restaraunt capped our reservation size days ago. It's a smaller place than what we have used in past years, and the area we have set aside for the dinner won't allow for anymore. We are already at the limit, and that's without the special guests that are coming. I'm so sorry!

    This has been quite the convention so far. Stephanie, of Creation, and Gary Berman's nephew Matt, are running things. They are doing a great job.
    Frank Cassini (Col. Grieves - The Sentinel) dropped into the pre-con party at Red Robbin and visited with everyone. Joe Mallozzi had to send his apologies as something came up that was impossible to get out of. He was quite disappointed that he couldn't visit. I received a very nice email from him today apologizing yet again for not being able to attend.

    I have photos to post as soon as I can. Seems like time here is flying by and the con will be over before we know it, so savour the moment if you can. Time to hit the sack since it is now 2:30 AM Pacific time and everyone in my room is asleep but me.

    Just quick: it was a great day yesterday filled with much fun. Did only one photo and auto, so it wasn't that stressful. The Cabaret was hilarious. Laughed myself to tears when Andee Frizzell and Chuck Campbell told their stories. Does funny stuff happen to them all the time or are they just good at storyteling?

    Today will be the longest and busiest day for me.

    Yeah, I enjoyed the Cabaret a lot too. Robert Picardo was awesome. I had no idea he was so multi-talented, with the singing and the poetry and all the rest of it. Looking forward to the next two days (Unlike Russell Crowe who looks forward to the next three days).

    Also, I know you're probably just joking but I think we all have funny moments like that - most of us are just not entertainers for a living so we brush them off instead of making a note of them to entertain others later. That, and they're probably more comfortable in front of 400 people than the average person. Anyway, Saturday is gonna be big for me as well. Gonna try and get Chris Judge's auto/photo, Picardo's auto/photo, and the David H, Joe F and Paul M single cast photo.

    Like silvercomet. The first day of the con went good for me. I too only had the one photo op and auto yesterday (with Brent Stait).

    Up today I have 4 of each (Mike Dupod, Steve Bacic, Jewel Staite and LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS). So busy day along with all the panels and such.

    Tomorrow sees Joe Flanigan and Aleks Paunovic joining my HUNKY SEXY male cuddles.

    Hi Folks,
    Looks like you're all having a great time there at the Con. Wish I was with you...I'm with you in spirit anyways!
    Sadly, can't take time off at the end of term. Trying not to give my students lousy marks just 'cos I'm in a pissy mood for being here and noT in Vangroovey!

    Enjoy the rest of the con... Luv 'n' hugs to all my Gate buddies

    I've got TONS of cool photos from the con, including guests in funny moments, attendees, and the costume contest. Is there going to be a dedicated thread for all of that stuff, or is there some sort of online album that everyone is going to contribute to?

    Usually people attending the con just post their photos and experiences in this thread, sometimes with a link to photobucket, image shack or another picture hosting site. People also use their Livejournal account and link to that if they don't want to keep it private or to friends only.

    Hey Sech,
    I am in the same boat as you, stuck here in Aus having to work. Maybe some of you will come to Perth next year and have dinner with Robin Dunne, Colin Ferguson or Teryl Rothery. Now that would be cool

    You're right. When I think of Chuck's story with the automatic self checkout (or whatever its called) - this might happen to all of us. I just don't have the skills to tell this in a funny way...

    Really, you did? I have huge problems getting good pictures. I almost stopped trying. Getting one good picture out of 20 is frustrating.


    So, yesterday: I was again in tears during some of the panels. They were hilarious. Just, especially the multi-panel was too limited in time. It was over way too fast.

    Kate Hewlett is a real sweetheart. Looking forward to her panel. Was surprised how laid-back Lou Diamond Philipps was. It was so great meeting him.

    Sadly, due to a scheduling conflict and because they weren't on time I missed Chuck's autograph. A friend got it for me, but it's just not the same. I wanted to talk with him. At least I got a nice hug during the photo op.

    It was nice meeting some more people from here during the Dessert party. *waves*

    The bad thing yesterday? It was really cold in the ballroom. When I got back to my hotel in the middle of the night I really felt like getting a cold. Luckily, right now I'm feeling better.

    It seems that today is my photo op and autograph day. Too bad we won't get back some of the photo ops today...
