    Why, thank you, kind mod!

    Okay, I'll be brave and make an appearance here. I come from the land of Samanda, aka "Sam's a Great Character" thread and plan to be at the Renaissance for AT's special weekend.

    Let's see who may be going ... hello out there? Any other Sam fans in the vicinity?

    Questions:

    Will this be your first con?
    Why did you choose GABIT?
    Are you coming from a distance or near the con site?
    Are you coming with a group of like-minded fans?
    And what about Naomi?!
    (Those who know me are familiar with the last question. If you really can tell me how Naomi's doing these days, then I'll definitely want to meet you at GABIT!)

    Cheers! CG

    Well it's not definite yet, but I'm really working to get over there for this.

    Will this be your first con? Second
    Why did you choose GABIT? Umm, all day, all weekend, all Amanda.
    Are you coming from a distance or near the con site? Texas
    Are you coming with a group of like-minded fans? Proud member of SAGC
    And what about Naomi?! You lost me on this one.

    Will this be your first con?; Nope. i've been going to them since 2002. 5 wolf cons in the UK and 2 Gatecons.

    Why did you choose GABIT?: They've got AT!!!

    Are you coming from a distance or near the con site? : 125 miles approx to travel. only 1 1/2 approx via virgin train though.

    Are you coming with a group of like-minded fans?: I'll be meeting up with some good friends. A few i wanted to meet have had to drop out . But 2 others not on the original list are considering it. I'm hoping more dont drop out.

    Hi Mal! Glad you are going. I was wondering if I should do the 'sensible' thing and ask for a refund (skint and I'm not having much look selling my Gatecon ticket in spite of that sounding like it's going to be an amazing event and I really wish I had the air fare...) But if I know other nice folks are going I guess I might hold on to it...

    Gabit's so near....and Oh Boy,it should be great !

    Hubs is attending too,and I already know MAL and Bev,plus some others who may be attending.
    I'm looking forward to meeting as many "Samandans" as possible,including your own good self !

    This was posted on the GABITS forum. I hope they dont mind me passing this on to people who dont use that forum.

    QUOTE:
    For those of you who registered seperately and now want to sit with friends... yes we will still be sorting this out by avergeing you numbers... however we need to get everyone ina row and we can't do that until everyone has confirmed or cancelled.sooooo

    What we will do is this... please get together off list and decide who wants to sit together.

    I will set up an e-mail list where you can e-mail the list of each person and thier registration number/ reference.

    This will take a couple of weeks as I am off on holiday so have a chat amoungst yourseles and we'll revisit it in late august

    We're booked for Friday night-Mon am.Payment on arrival.

    Thanks for posting the info about seating,MAL . *sends hugs*
    (I've yet to join their forum,but I'll make sure I do that next.)

    Good luck organising the time off.

    I think I'll use the Monday as recuperation/sleep time....I suspect a lot of us will need to do that !

    This is me, answering me as you all have already answered the questions I first posed! I hope I don't suffer entropic cascade failure or whatever it was in AU!!

    What a great group of AT fans we have onboard for London! Looking forward to meeting many of you.

    Dutifully answers GABIT questions:

    Okay, this will be my first (and probably only) con. (Money, time, and location are prime factors.)
    GABIT ... because I think AT is Canada's hidden treasure. She is a terrific actress who has had very little exposure outside the Stargate series and she has made Sam Carter into a great character!
    I'm coming from the east coast of the United States!
    I will be sharing time and stories with my fellow Samandans and other members of the Royal Court (see SaGC, Sam's a Great Character thread here at GW)!
    Now, about Naomi ... it's actually a running gag-line from a couple forums ... years ago, there was an American television show which kept using the line "and what about Naomi?" ... the elusive non-character! However, if the real Naomi is reading this, please post and identify yourself!

    SL Mal, thanks for telling us about the seating arrangements. Everyone, please continue to post anything that can be helpful to our fellow con goers!

    Peace, CG/Jester from the realm of Samanda where hic comitas regit! Come visit us and you'll see for yourselves!

    Hey CG, 1speed has already posted for us both, but I thought I would put in my 2 pennith worth!

    Yes
    I didn't dare tell you I wasn't going (seriously I think AT is the best thing since the big bang [and no I'm not talking about my personal life])
    Depends how bad the trains are as to how far it feels!
    Err 1speed like minded???!!! It will be a pleasure to meet all fellow AT fans and Samandans in particular!

    Re: GABIT attendees thread

    I was so excited at the fact that I was going to GABIT that I didn't answer the questions, so..

    Will this be your first con? Yes.
    Why did you choose GABIT? Sam is my favourite character in the show, and I think Amanda is an incredible actress. She also comes across as being a wonderful person in RL.
    Are you coming from a distance or near the con site? I'm flying down from Edinburgh.
    Are you coming with a group of like-minded fans? No, but I already know Baggie, and I feel as if I know many of you from the "SaGC" thread.

    I was on the phone to my Mum earlier, and she was telling me she had been visiting her friend today. Mum told her I was going to GABIT, and her friend said she was so jealous, as she loves Stargate. I've known this woman all my life, and yet I never knew that she watched SG! I can just imagine these two women in their late 70's, sitting discussing SG. Mum is used to me going on and on about it, but I'm sure she never expected her friend to do the same!

    Hey,Bev,can I borrow those fine ladies to convince my Mum-In-Law that Stargate's not just, I quote : "A crowd of strange folk in skirts (!) jumping around shooting each other with lava sticks ? "

    *Forlorn Sigh*

    At least she does know who Amanda is .

    Also,as dear M-I-L is my chief Gatelet-sitter for the duration of Gabit...I'll forgive her anything.
