    ^ Agree

    I just reread another post on the GC forum, and a convention ticket isn't needed for the film location tour. Wow!

    Brad Wright was announced as a guest, and I doubt any refunds will be issued. Made travel plans.

And there's Cal Mah, which is a first year event in November dedicated to Stargate (all of it, from SG-1 to SGO) but prices are way too steep to travel to either. Although we were considering going to Paris for the Heroes weekend but the money we would pay for the trip would literally cut our vacation budget in half. And our priorities are not aimed at conventions.

    Last time I visited Canada was for a Stargate convention in Burnaby, BC in 2012. Medical pot wasn't legalized then so it was safe for me. But now that Canada has medical pot and soon to have rec pot legalized by September 2018, no travel to Canada for me. I have a gold main ticket, banquet ticket, and film location bus tour ticket to get sell if I can. I've alerted the GC organizers.

    Color me confused but what does that have to do with not being able to attend Gatecon?

    You're probably already aware of this, but I found this bit in the Terms of Conditions of Gatecon:

    If the event is sold out whereby we have no tickets left for sale we will allow the transfer or resale of tickets to persons on the waiting list should such a list exist at that time. Private resale or transfer of tickets is not allowed and can render the ticket null and void. If you are unable to attend the event Contact Us directly by email. We will endeavour to put you in touch with someone on the waiting list should such a list exist at that time.

    That sounds like the rules from 2016. I've already contacted Fryn and Richard.

    I'd imagine those that have waited may now want to save their money for 2019 and the Special Anniversary Convention that Creation are putting on in Chicago in June 2019, "Gateway - A Salute to Stargate"...Joe Flanagan and Amanda Tapping already confirmed as guests..

    No page yet or tickets on sale but here's the link to the page it's mentioned on

    I plucked it from the general Terms and Conditions page -- which doesn't have a specific date attached to it.

    Seems like that's a rather stupid thing. From the rest of the page it seems that tickets can be "resold" to people on the waiting list, with a refund for the cancelling party. I mean, those tickets are freakishly expensive from my point of view, so a refund would at least be considered -- with perhaps a loss of transfer or whatever cost.

    I'm so looking forward to this! I wasn't into cons when the franchise was on TV, and missed my chance to tour the stages or see the stars back then. I've a friend going up with me, and I can't wait. Sure, it's expensive, but it's only a drive away from me and I'm too far away for DragonCon or the Creation one, so I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to go and see so many of those who made the Stargate franchise so great.

    Aw man, I wish I could be there, especially with all that teasing about an announcement. Unfortunately, living on the other side of the globe with a lack of ring or beaming transporters (and a passport, stupid me), I can't go...

    It's probably the most disappointing thing in my life up to this point.

    It's waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too expensive to go -- that's basically it for me.

    I mean, David Tennant who plays Doctor 10 and happens to be my favorite Doctor so an autograph would be sweet but when he's in Belgium in 24 days from now, I will happily not go for one cause there's no chance in hell I'm paying 100 euros for it. John Barrowman only asks 45 euro.

    Is that how much he charges for an autograph??? Wow, that's pretty pricey. I'll see him the week after gatecon, but at least now I have an idea.

    Yes, his asking price for an autograph runs between 100 and 120 euros.
    There's also a photo-op which goes at the same price, so everyone who's going 2-for-2 will have spend 200 euros on him, and considering they have had to add 2 extra photoshoots on Saturday (the only day he'll be there), I'd say he's walking out with a little over 120,000 in earnings (counting approx 200 photo-op tickets per session and the same amount for autographs, but autographs will probably be more) -- possible around 150,000 euros for one convention day.

    In comparison, there's also Jennifer Morrison (50 euros), John Barrowman (55 for photo and 45 for autograph), Tom Felton (75 for photo, and 70 for autograp), and 2 voice actors (from Mario Bros and Overwatch), and they go for 30 and 35.
