WHAT: WonderCon 2011
WHERE: Moscone Center San Francisco

Web Site: http://www.comic-con.org/wc/

Hotel Reservations through WC Housing: http://www.comic-con.org/wc/wc_hotel.shtml
Advanced Registration for the 3 day weekend $40.00: http://www.comic-con.org/wc/wc_reg.shtml

This is the biggest convention our base participates in each year in Northern California! If you are a new member of the Rebel Legion, it is a great event to come out to in order to meet people, participate in our annual group photo and dinner, and just have a lot of fun! It is one of the few times our base members from all over California (and members from visiting bases) get to meet up and hang out together Smile

Background:
WonderCon is run by Comic-Con International. This is the same group that runs San Diego Comic-Con International and this is the only other pop-culture convention they run! WonderCon shares a similar feel to Comic-Con San Diego as far as some of the programming (a few movie panels with surprise guests to promote upcoming spring/summer movies. Popular TV talent from Hollywood, and a Costume Masquerade on Saturday Night). However, the convention is much smaller than Comic-Con San Diego so for those who long for the days when Comic-Con was smaller, more relaxed and intimate (no camping out overnight to get into Hall H every day, no stress about finding a hotel, you can actually move around the exhibit hall...) this convention captures a lot of that spirit!

Now just because it is smaller than San Diego Comic-Con doesn't mean it's a tiny local convention. The attendance rate at this convention is about equal to Dragon*Con. (2010 saw over 39,000 people at WonderCon. Dragon Con was roughly 40,000.)

Third Annual 501st Rebel Legion Dinner - April 1st:
For the past two years the Rebel Legion and 501st have joined forces for an annual dinner party on Friday night. This year we hope to make this the biggest dinner party we've ever hosted!

We are just starting to get plans underway for this party at Jillians. Tickets for the dinner are actually on sale now. Please visit our Dinner Sign Up thread for information on how to get your dinner ticket (No walk-ins the night of the dinner. All tickets paid for in advance.)

We have some very special things we are planning this year that we will be discussing in our Endor Base Events section only!

In previous years we have had a charity raffle at the dinner, and many of our Rebel Legion and 501st members have generously sponsored special guests from Lucasfilm and "Star Wars" related media to join us at the dinner.

Please visit the dinner planning thread here:
http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29255


Please visit the dinner sign-up thread here (first come, first serve until the dinner is sold out!): http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29624


Rebel Legion Table:
The Rebel Legion will have a fan table. Location and volunteer sign up thread TBA.




Rebel Legion Group Photo Shoot:
Please join us for our annual group photo on Saturday morning at 11:30am. Location TBA. (We may need to have the photo outdoors at the Zeum carousel this year as there is a strong likelihood the stairs will not be available to us indoors). Check the photo shoot thread for the latest details on meet-up time and location.

Photo Shoot Sign Up Thread & Detailed Info:

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30234

If anyone has been thinking about visiting San Francisco or checking out WonderCon, this could be a great year to do it! We hope to see many of you there!

We have our preliminary table assignment (it is always subject to change so I will wait a bit before posting the map.) Right now we are in the same spot as usual, actually one spot over on the corner where SFFF used to be. So it is the most prime location for a Fan Table and if they have the photo banner up like last year we will be next to that for any photo ops our members want to hang out for (I think that could be partly why they put us there too).

I'm sorry, but we just don't have the leverage to be given a paid table like the 501st gets. They have a long relationship with the con and do line duty for them every year, so they are given what is normally a paid exhibitor booth table and are very very lucky to get that sort of booth. The only reason the droid group (Totally Wired - not affiliated with R2 Builders Club) was next to them last year is because they paid for their table from what I was told - like any other exhibitor.

So we will happily take our free fan table, on the corner, first fan table people will see as they walk to the back! Next to the photo backdrop area Smile Table F6, next to the Slave Leia table Wink [that's if our position holds and no changes are made - it's a preliminary table number for us]

I wanted to make a clarification about the droid booth you all saw next to the 501st booth at WonderCon in 2010. This was not the R2 Builders club (or droid builders club). It is a company called Totally Wired - and I guess just happen to have some droids among other things!

* http://totallywireddroids.design.officelive.com/aboutus.aspx
* http://www.scopious.net/index.html

I had known from prior conversations with that these were not the droid builders or R2 Builders, so had referred to them as "Droid Group" when actually, I guess they are more of a "Droid Parts Vendor." There could have been some confusion, and I apologize if anyone read my term "Droid Group" as meaning R2/Droid Builders Club. I did not intend that.

Kathy,
Where does the Rebels meet first (Loc) before taking the group photo?
I keep missing the photoshoot and I want to make sure I'm in it this year.

Thank
Mark.

Hi Mark,

We meet at our convention table at 11:00am Saturday morning and walk over to the photo location around 11:15 so that we can start at 11:30.

I will post our booth location once I have word from wondercon that our booth number is set. It's going to be back on the draped wall with the rest of the regular fan tables, just past autograph tables. If you remember where Mark and Carrie were positioned 2 years ago, that general area.

We may have to have the photo out at the carousel if we can't secure an indoor location.

I got this message from Kellie:

Hey Guys,
I just wanted to let you know that I am sending Martinni the Traveling Jawa to Wondercon with one of the folks from our local garrison. He's kinda like Flat Stanly and we're trying to get his pic with as many spiffy people and places as possible. So if a 7ft red headed Viking looking guy with a Jawa doll is coming towards you, it's ok, he just wants your pic.

I won't make it this year to Wondercon. Cooper is in a school play same weekend. Zach, although registered, is now going to Utah same weekend. Jordon is registered and should be there for the 501st.

Not sure about WonderCon this year- with work announcing it's closing down, laying everyone off in May, that sucks...

Then, my darn arches partially "fell", making my feet a bit longer...like too long to fit in 90% of my footwear!! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

So, looks like I gotta get new Endor boots. Been working on my "Endorious Basturd" for quite awhile now, twin bandoliers, forearm knife, more ammo pouches, captured "Imperial Weapontry" - a MG-34, and have a ESB Han style pistol w/ Blastech parts...need to make the holster. Needless to say, kinda bummed. Neutral

Depending on footwear, I may get a wild hair and show up Sat. Don't know what costume, but trying to make it to least say Hi!! Smile

Sorry to hear you are having a rough time with work and your feet. Well, it would be a fun surprise if you can make it on Saturday! Make sure you stop by the photo or the booth to say hi, even if you are not in RL gear Smile
