It's probably too early to start this thread, but I'm going to anyway. I'm really eager to find who is planning on attending!

Is GC2005 confirmed yet?

ShadowMaat
September 15th, 2004, 05:29 PM
No confirmation yet that I'm aware of, but I'll be there if/when it happens.

Curse you for starting this thread, David. I thought you'd gotten a scoop on it actually happening! :P

David
September 15th, 2004, 05:31 PM
Well that sure gave me an idea! I'm going to call my buddy Allan, who should be out of bed by now, and ask him what their plans are. Though if nothing's concrete, he'll give me a head's up but probably won't let me tell everyone :(

I get that a lot.
It sucks.

David

Well I can tell you that I'll throw a tantrum and enter denial for a few months, but I'll eventually get over it. Gatecon and GateWorld were just kicking off our partnership, but that aside, they deliver a kick-butt con!

Aww, poor baby. I feel sooo sorry for you. No, really. I do. :P

Remind me to smack you next time we meet. ;)

I am gonna get to Victoria in '05 if it kills me. Five visits to Vancouver and I still haven't managed to get there. *sigh*

And Steveston. Definitely gotta see Steveston...

Well, I'm already saving my pennies to go. I'm just glad I don't have to save a ton of pennies.

(I already have $21.65CN from the last trip across the border for spending money :D .)

I just remebered....their is that little spin off show called SGA. Think it can take the reins and run the convention on its own.

I love Victoria. That's where we went on the last trip. Actually, that's where we went on our only trips to Canada. Just plan on doing lot of walking.

Oh, that's what you meant! lol, yeah the convention would go on. Most of the cast and crew live in that area anyway. Mostly.

Yes yes, SAVE SAVE SAVE. I started in January of 04 for GC 2004 and it really helped. This time I left my GC bank account open to keep transferring stuff into it. If you start now and put in, say, 50 bucks a month, you'll be off to a great start.

From Allan Gowen:

"Regardless of what happens, we WILL do a gatecon 2005. BUT we are still
waiting to hear back from MGM concerning some licensing aspects."

ShadowMaat
September 15th, 2004, 06:03 PM
Yay! Good to hear. They should talk to David Hewlett. I bet he would LOVE to do Gatecon. :D I already have questions for him...

I'd say "You're the best, David!" but I wouldn't want it to go to your head. :P

David
September 15th, 2004, 06:05 PM
Additional details...

"It will still
have guests from Stargate, but we will be billing it as a general Sci-Fi
convention and inviting guests from other Sci-Fi series. And even the
guests we have from Stargate have been in other series, so we will push that
fact rather than the Stargate side."

Skydiver

don't suppose he's willing to give you a hint as to dates????

for some of us, the earlier we ask for vacation, the better our chances of getting it

ShadowMaat
September 15th, 2004, 06:14 PM
Hmm... general scifi? Then add Andrew Miller and Vincenzo Natali to the list. :D Assuming they aren't busy with Necropolis.

General scifi would have me at a loss, though. At least in regards to current TV. Not much on genre-wise that I watch.

Bear Burge and Dragon Dronet. Two most excellent prop masters.

Hmmm...

Are there dates set for Gatecon 2005? Cause I'm actually planning a holiday for next year and I'll be popping through Canada for about 2 -3 weeks in either July or August next year, on my way to Greece for 2 months!

I have a funny feeling that Gatecon 2005 isn't being held anywhere near those months!

David
September 15th, 2004, 06:45 PM
Gatecon 2005 will be held in the latter weeks of July. I'm trying to get the exact dates from Allan. When he tells me, I'll be telling everyone else.

personally, i'm hoping for earlier than later. my co-worker goes on vacation every year the last week of july. it might be a hard sell for both of us to be gone at the same time

Hi David,

The dates will be 22-25 July I think. I'm pretty sure those are the date...
Maybe the week before or week after if I am wrong.

The hotel and everything is booked... We just need to wait for MGM.

Thanks

Yaaaaa!!! My husband and I were wondering about Gatecon 05!!! As we were leaving the Chicago con, my husband said he wants to go to Victoria if they have another con!!! And I am the one who is addicted to Stargate!!! LOL So we have our huge glass water jug that we've been throwing our change in!! I tried to put a pic of the stargate on it, but my 1 yr old keeps ripping it off!!!

Can't wait!! Thanks for the info David!!!

I just got a heart attack when I saw the prices for a plane ticket from Germany to Vancouver... 1100 Dollars! Eeeek! I'd love to go to GateCon and see a bit of Canada too, but it's so expensive... :( Better start saving now.

GateCon or a Tolkien Festival in Switzerland, but I WILL get a vacation next year!

The only thing I think that could stop me is the hubby. He's not a SG fan, so to leave him for a long weekend with the kids could be interesting......

as a shipper and jonas fan i felt the same way. If it wasn't for my close friends it would not have been as much fun.....if i had a penny for every dirty look from a few of the ardent anti-ship/daniel fans i'd have enough to buy my tickets for next year......(and no, i'm not addressing this generally, it was a specific few who reserved their glares and dirty looks just for me and my friends...eh, if that's how they got thier jollies <G>...after saturday it got to be quite predictible and humorous. I should have started taking pictures ;) )

but you know what, i just hung out with my friends and said screw the rest

in the end, it made things easier for next year. I know who to not even try to touch base with

CoffeeGirl

Really? That bad? Can't imagine.

*pause*

REALLY? :S

Come on, this is supposed to be FUN. We may disagree on the forum, but that doesn't mean we can't be in same room and talk with each other! Or does it?

I'm best friends with an anti-shipper and slasher. What's the big deal? We have loads of fun together, discuss it light-heartedly and if it gets bad, we throw popcorn at each other. Where's the problem?

David
September 16th, 2004, 11:53 AM
One of my dearest Gatecon buddies is a Daniel fanatic and extreme slasher. Pretty much the dark side of the moon when compared with me. But we're still Gatecon buddies all the same. How very sad and rediculous to continue to fortify those walls while Stargate fans are united at a convention. IMHO, that' exactly what it's NOT about.

ShadowMaat
September 16th, 2004, 12:38 PM
It wasn't the whole con. I blended in pretty easily at the con itself. But the dinner... *shrug* Like I said, there was one person who made me uncomfortable so that probably colored my view of everyone else. I was kinda set away from them anyway.

Maybe next time I'll bring popcorn to throw. ;)

Random- no age limit for the con itself, but you might want to see what the rules are for under-age border crossings.

i don't have an issue with it, which is why i found their snubbing to be rather infantile and humorous. After a while my friends and i were keeping score....'so did x glare at you too??????'

there was a couple of years ago when i was chatting with a person. and we were having a decent little chat....then she read my lanyard, saw what picture was on it and all of a sudden her eyes grew wide and she started to back off....sort of 'oh my god, it's a jonas/ship fan....my god, i must get away before she hurts me'

it was sort of funny. never knew that i was that intimidating and scary. :)


There are some people that i avoid simply because if you say good morning to them, i'll get online the next week and learn that my 'good morning' has been interpreted as a vicious attack or that i called them some rude and horrible names. So i just don't talk to them at all. Which i'm sure i get taken to task for as well, but hey, what can you do???

.

there was one person that snubbed me quite rudely, so i'll just make a note to just not have anything to do with her or her group in the future....which was all she needed to do in the first place. If she had an issue with me, she just needed to say something.

David
September 16th, 2004, 04:34 PM
I had a similar problem. Only mine wasn't with one of my fellow con-goers. It was one of the guests. I had watched this person for years on television and thought she was most beautiful, and when I met her she was awful - mean and overly self-indulgent.

If she's invited again, I'm staying clear.

But overall, it's a wonderful experience:D!

Thats just....wrong.
You would hope that someone in kind of position would realise that the fans are what keep her in a job.
But beyond that it would be incredibly disappointing. Particularly if you've been a fan for years.
Did it turn you off the character that she played?

David
September 16th, 2004, 06:53 PM
In a heartbeat. She's been in my Windows startup for two years. Not the desktop wallpaper, mind you, but the startup image where you punch in your code. Alas, the software that put her there EXPIRED (i.e. her face was stuck there for good), so I still had her up there until recently when I reformatted.

If you're on my good side, and it's unusual that you wouldn't be, I think I put up with a great degree of harassment from just about everybody.

Though there are a few who are indeed spooked by me. I can't imagine why.

I'm a walking candy apple!

If anyone has any suggestions for restaurants to suit a large number of folks, I'm all ears. Cronos was borderline. We were basically shoved into a storage closet, and I frequently found myself manipulating the accommodations just so we could all see and visit with one another.

Something tells me we'll have to go.. bigger.

September 17th, 2004, 06:22 AM
That's interesting that they're going to make it more of a general scifi convention. I assume they have to go that direction because of MGM's deal with Creation? Of course there are a number of scifi actors who have ties to Stargate now.

Adam Baldwin (Firefly and SG-1).
Claudia Black (Farscape and SG-1) I'd love to see her!
Robert Picardo (Voyager and SG-1)
John DeLancie (TNG and SG-1)
Jolene Blalock (Enterprise and SG-1)
Lexa Doig (Andromeda and well she sort of has ties to SG-1)
Steve Bacic of course (Andromeda and SG-1)
Gordon Michael Woolvett (Andromeda) - he'd be excellent, funny guy

David
September 17th, 2004, 06:25 AM
Gatecon is FAR more likely to invite folks in their area than to ship them over. Lexa is probably a given with Michael. I'm sure if they really do open the policy you can expect the return of Steve Macic. But I imagine DeLancie and Blalock are out of reach if they're wanting the main SG-1 three back again. I hope I'm wrong, though! It'd be thoroughly enjoyable to have them all.

Skydiver
September 17th, 2004, 06:34 AM

they can come and talk about their guest starring role on Atlantis

I liked Boston Pizza, but I don't know how they'd handle a large party. I've only ever seen the front part and that would leave us in lots of booths, which probably isn't ideal. I think they have tables in the back, though...

BTW, in case I haven't mentioned it in the past five minutes: David Hewlett. :D He's done loads of scifi stuff, not just Stargate. ;)

Hasn't MGM granted Creation the exclusive con rights to Atlantis as well? I see the "Official" title slapped on Atlantis on their website. Seems like there might be the same conflict with them.

I'm all for inviting the Atlantis folks - David Hewlett and Joe Flannigan would be top of my list.

Not that I'm going to get to go - just thinking of you guys. :)

David
September 17th, 2004, 06:46 AM
It would be a tremendous shame if Gatecon wasn't allowed access to the Atlantis cast. I would have a few bones to pick into. In fact, I'm going to check with Allan about that one and get back to you guys.

Skydiver

yes, it would be.

I prefer gatecon because i like to support the charity of Make a Wish.

David

I just got an email from the Gatecon C4.

As of right now the possibility of having Stargate Atlantis cast and crew at Gatecon 2005 is still entirely up in the air. Frankly I was hoping the response would be "What are you talking about, David? Of COURSE they'll be coming." But if this steers in the wrong direction, Gatecon won't be allowed to have them. MGM could give exclusivity to Creation.

Pray.

ask allen if letters in support of gatecon would be beneficial please.

or has he also asked Make a Wish to write mgm, asking for thier support for a charity.

You would think that it'd be massively great press to have MGM sponsoring a convention that assists a great charity like Make a Wish. good press like that is hard to come by

The main reason i support gatecon is because of Make a Wish. I'm not going to help the rich get richer, but i will do it for the kids

Skydiver
September 19th, 2004, 04:58 PM
probably if you give them notice. a dozen of us just walked in, and we had to wait a bit for them to put tables together, but they accomodated us with no notice.

i feel that if you let them know you're coming, they will accomodate you.

i even have a menu from 2 years ago if you want contact info closer to the actual time

they have pizzas, sandwiches, stromboli, nachos, salada, soups, pastas and a few entrees

probably enough to satisify any appetite....ooh, and i think they serve alcohol too :)

Why yes, I am planning on going to Gatecon, thank you for asking. I am looking forward to meeting all the mods and shadowy characters that might show up from Gateworld. Of course you would have to know who I am to "accidently" spill tobasco on my food, wouldn't you.

I don't know the summer schedule for school yet but somehow I will mangage it. I'm going to get an early start on getting a roomate or roomates this time so I won't be stuck boarding with complete strangers. I could conceivably afford a room to myself but the more spending money I have the better. ;) Umm...kilts....sorry I have a one-track mind. :D

If Gatecon does happen, I'm thinking of trying to spend a little more time there next trip out so I can actually DO things that have nothing to do with the con itself. I STILL haven't been to the Suspension Bridge, I STILL haven't been to Victoria or Steveston and I'd like to hit some of the restaurants that aren't within walking distance of the hotel. :P Company on any of these excursions and bullying to get me to do them will, of course, be much appreciated. Within reason. :P

David- have you called the hotel about renting space, yet? I just have a feeling it'd be prohibitively expensive, but maybe you can sweet talk them into a better deal. ;) Otherwise, I'm still all for Boston Pizza. I know they have good food and I promise I'll at least try to stay away from all those cool-sounding drinks of theirs and be on my best behavior. http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/otn/love/biggrinlove.gif

Also, if you guys are serious about the secondary meet-up at David's, should we maybe start a separate thread for it so folks don't get confused and the rubber duck-addled mods don't come down on us for being wildly off topic? :D

And to just let you know, if you are interested, Seattle is less than a 3hr drive and loads of interesting sites. I'd be happy to give you some tips and even show you around (if I can get the extra time off). :D

Seattle is also on my list of places to visit some day. In fact, it's on my list of places to move to. ;) But I figure if I can't even get to Victoria, there's no way I'm getting to Seattle. *sigh* Or maybe what I need to do is fly to Seattle and then find people willing to carpool to Vancouver. Get to see a bit of both, that way, and a lot less stress with airport security. Dunno what the border guards are like, though. ;) Hopefully cute, but that's probably asking a bit much. *sigh*

I'd be happy to carpool. I plan to drive anyway. The border's not too bad. We went to Victoria over Labor Day weekend. We left the house Saturday morning and drove to the BC ferry terminal. It too less than an hour to get through. Now coming home on Monday took even less time. I think 20 minutes and we crossed about 3 pm.

*sigh* Another boat?? But that's just to Victoria, right? I suppose it might be fun to see what other peoples' ferrys are like, anyway, but sheesh: boat, bus, plane, car, boat? I really need to move to a real place...

Oh and yes, the ferry was to Vancouver Island. The ferry trip was 1.5 hr and another 30 min. or so to drive to the Inner Harbour of Victoria.
