Hello everyone!

Planning on attending and may be bringing a first-timer. She goes to all the local fandom cons around where she lives so not sure if she's ever been to a strictly Stargate convention before. Will be fun to experience it all anew from her eyes. Can't wait for the festivities to begin!

Was planning on doing some side trips after the convention up to Capilano Bridge and maybe whale watching once again. Anyone interested in going together?

It'll be good to finally put a face to all those convention-based phone calls you and I had "Grant. Grant. Mom's talking"

LOL, yep and you think I'm loud just wait to till you meet him.  He's louder then me.  I'm always telling him to quiet down.

How is this possible? Hey Siri, where can I buy ear plugs?

LOL,He's bigger then me.  By a lot.

I'll be there and I may actually have a newbie coming as well.  24, Big, Loud, and totally excited.  Hasn't decided yet if he (have you guessed yet?) wants to volunteer or not. :D

You have a new toyboy?

I was told this was a family website and that I would need to behave if I was coming on the forums... Idk if I would be able to do worse then this ^ lol. Hi y'all I am the son.

A definitely will be great to finally meet him!!

LOL, You may regret it. :D

*sigh* Yup parents always your best spokes person, worrisome thought that. lol

Sorry...extremely new here....  How does the seating work?  I understand there's only one ticket price, so am I going to be up all night in line to get a good seat or how does it work?  Thanks.

No, you won't be up all night waiting in lines.  There will be plenty of close seating.  Most people line up maybe an hour before the doors open.

Hi Brenda!

I'm Lisa- new but lord willing tomorrow getting  a ticket!  :o

I was actually thinking the same thing! It will be my first time to Vancouver, so I would love to see what I can, ESPECIALLY Whale watching as that's what I'm studying in school! :)

If you've got the time, check out Stanley Park (I should probably take my own advice as it has been decades since I have been out that way) and you should be able to find the Olympic torch (not lit) at Coal Harbour. I've never seen it for myself as I rarely get downtown and I certainly didn't dare brave the mob of the Olympic crowd.

Oh that sounds awesome!!! Thank you!!! We are getting there a day or so early and leaving a few days later, so hopefully it will account for some time to check some of this out! Awesome! 😊

This will be our 3rd trip to Vancouver.  We always try to get in a bit of fishing, so we will be arriving on Monday and doing a charter on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Expect to be back in time for the informal meet and greet prior to the festivities.

No, you won't be up all night waiting in lines.  There will be plenty of close seating.  Most people line up maybe an hour before the doors open.

And now that they've gone w/ assigned seating, you don't even have to do that.  Just line up and find your seat. =)
