I know, I know Comic con will whip out most people but if you are up for the challenge then please post.



I would like to have a Sunrider table but I want to make sure it will man at least 80% of the time.

Donna, who has our banner?

More to come

This is WorldCon, the world science fiction convention. I believe there is another thread on this but it could be buried.



This convention is not a "media" convention like Comic-con. It is more of a science fiction literature convention where they give out the publishing awards (the Hugo and the Nebula) for the best science fiction and fantasy stories of the year.



Shawn Crosby (Obi-Shawn) is one of the organizers so your best bet would be to get in touch with him about table space. I will not be there as an attendee because I am working for Sue Dawe and, as her agent, "schmoozing" several companies to get her art commissions. However, if there are fan tables, the rest of you are welcome to run it.



Rob, I own the banner and I can bring it with me and take it home at the end of the convention.

Ok team,


I've trying to get our group in for free to this event but I need a solid number of attendees.


Please sound off if you can make this event in Anaheim.


Thanks


Rob

Well, if I can get in for free then put me down. I haven't heard whether I have a membership or not through Sue and this way I can kill two birds with one stone.



Thanks for taking this on, Rob.

Problem is, Worldcon is the same week classes start.  I'm going to try to go for one day, but I'll be darned if I know which day that'll end up being.

Had to bail on this one.  As much as we wanted to go (and already had rooms)...but with finishing up Mom and Dad's house...AND it being the first week back at work....


Just bad timing.. (I wish it would go back to Labor Day Weekends)...Anyways.. since my Admin has already given me pre-approved time off for CIV next year, I'm not rocking the boat. LOL


Everyone go and have a great time!!!!!!

I believe I will be all over Friday.  Even with the event being dead and all, if anyone wants to hang I'll prolly be in Jedi unless by some miracle my Mal gets finished by then.

This particular convention has several things against it:



1. It's too expensive for registration.

2. It's more literature-related.

3. It's not media oriented like Comic-Con.

4. It's expensive.



Thanks for trying, Rob.

No big deal, I know we would make a good impact plus pick up some new members.


Now!  We could try talking our way in if we were a group of Rebel Fleet troops


If we got our costums on before we got to the con and then allow me do the talking at the door we might be able to BS our way in.  But that would be bad and I would or have never not that

Naw, we're supposed to be the good guys and since the 501st won't be there either then we don't have an excuse to "storm" the place.
