« on: March 01, 2016, 03:20:06 PM »
You would have guessed by now I'm a big fan of SGU so would be immensely happy to see more guests from that show.  :)

As you asked so nicely :)

Jennifer Spence, aka Dr Lisa Park from SGU joins the Homecoming guest-list



Great news, be lovely to meet her again. Thank you Richard :)

I'm with PamK1950 on hoping David Blue is asked too! He's one of us, a big fan of Stargate! :)

Sad news about the cancellations by Teryl and Jay Acovone. I am however happy to see a face from SGU, Peter Kelamis. He is such a funny guy, being a stand up comedian he will be entertaining thats for sure!  :)

Not sure what the protocol is for introductions, I've finally recovered my password, omg sooo much to catch up on!

I'm Heidi and I'll be flying from Texas. This will be my FIRST convention and my first trip to Canada. I'm a bit nervous since I won't know a soul and having to learn the rules of con-going and what to expect. I don't really do well with large crowds and hectic pace. But this is a bucket-list type thing and I really want to make the most of it. I grew up watching Stargate with my dad (he's a huuuge RDA fan) and this event is like reliving the happy part of my childhood. I really want to meet as many people as I can and experience everything that I can!
ok well enough rambling...Hello everybody!  ;D

Hi Heidi, you've made the first step and met some people!  :) I went to my first Stargate convention on my own too! I had no idea what to expect but everyone on the forum I was on at the time were so welcoming and answered all my questions. I felt I got to know people before I got there and then I met many of them in person too, a few of them are coming to this convention so we're all meeting up again! That's how easily Stargate fans make friends and you will get to meet loads of people through sharing the one thing we're all there for, a love of Stargate!

Hi Amy, welcome. Given that there is the Sky train near the convention hotel I would take the train and use transit. The traffic in Vancouver and Richmond is bad for most of the day! I live about 19 miles East of the hotel and I'm trying to avoid having to drive to the con every day by hoping to get a room in a hotel close by for a couple of nights! You would need a car if you want to do more sightseeing outside of Vancouver as the transit system is not as good further out in the Lower Mainland. You will be able to get to the touristy places and the most popular Stargate locations using transit.

I would be very surprised if Jack's cabin was not on the tour. It is after all the most popular location, it's the most requested one whenever I've filled my car for Stargate location tours during past conventions. :)

Hi everyone! I'm Jen, I'm 33 and I'm from Seattle. I didn't get into Stargate until about 6 years ago, but I've been obsessed with SG-1 ever since. I cosplay as O'Neill at every con I go to. This is my first Gatecon, but definitely not my first con! Just my first Stargate-centered one. I am so excited! I'll be driving up and staying at a hotel in Langley. Nice to meet everyone!!

Photos of my cosplay (are not great quality) can be found on tumblr at stargatecosplay

Hi Jen, welcome! Looks like we'll be not too far from eachother, I live in Cloverdale. Nice to meet you too, it's always great to see new people discovering the awesomeness that is Stargate! :)

What a great idea, if you're going to have a holiday why not make the most of it! A trip on the Rocky Mountaineer is on my bucket list! I just never seem to have the money to do it, even with the discounted trips they offer to BC residents! I can never have enough of the mountains, forests and lakes of BC, it's so beautiful, you'll be blown away by the sheer magnificence of some of those views on the trip through the Rockies. We've driven on some of the stretches near the railway and I've always wanted to see the view from that train. It goes into areas the road doesn't and gives a different perspective.

Wow, quite a few changes guest wise since I last visited this site! Whilst I was really happy at the prospect of seeing almost all of SG-1 on stage at once there are still all the other wonderful guests who helped make this show the special thing that it is in our hearts. For me, as for everyone here it is all about being together and sharing this love for the show and I'm grateful that so many of the actors still wish to do so with us. Richard and everyone organising Gatecon really do put on a great show with a wonderful friendly atmosphere from my past experience, and this one will be no different I'm sure!  :)

I would love to see some guests from SGU as well. An announcement of Louis Ferreira would make my day!  :)

Great news! I like Earls, they always do a good job with large groups. I've been to a couple of con gatherings at Earl's in Downtown Vancouver in the past and they've been great fun, the food and service very good.

Atlantia, I replied to your message. It said it timed out but then said it was sent so just checking to see if you got my reply.

What a great guest list, I'm so looking forward to seeing many of them again, and there's some I haven't seen yet so even better! It's going to be a wonderful trip down SG-1 memory lane with the great selection of guests from that series. I'm going to have to do a re-watch again to see them all in action before the event! 

I hope there will be some nice surprises guest wise too for this SGU fan.  :D

Hi and welcome to our newest arrivals on the thread, looking forward to meeting you all!  It's been too quiet here in Vancouver for too long without the hordes of Stargate fans coming to have a great time! I've missed the excitement of looking forward to a Stargate con and connecting with friends old and new on forums and meeting in person to talk Stargate and more Stargate!  :)

Pier 37 sounds really nice and I too like the idea of a private room. The $33 minimum per head you said Atlantia might not have the gratuity included which restaurants add on for groups depending on the number of people usually. There will be 5%GST on top of that for food and 10% tax on alcohol as well.

On looking at the location of the restaurant from the hotel it would probably mean having to get a cab to get there and back; estimated cost each way for cab fare is $14.00, up to $23 if the traffic is bad, but if it's split 4 ways it's not so bad. I have no idea about the availability of public transit to get there from the hotel since I'm not that familiar with Richmond, only driven through bits of it to get to Steveston or the airport from where I live.

Thanks for the info Krisz. I am unable to find anything big enough any closer to the hotel. I am still looking, but if you have any thoughts they would be appreciated.

I'll continue to look around for a possible place, we like to wander around at weekends and go out for meals so maybe we'll go and check out some places in Richmond nearer to the hotel or close to a skytrain station over the next few months. It's a shame the con is just too far from where I live. I can already think of two places that would accommodate a large group, one of which is on the street just round the corner from my place used as a filming location in SG-1 and SGU!
