<snip>, and Robin Dunne has also confirmed he has new work commitments. Robin has agreed to sign some head shots for us to sell at the event plus we will still have all the items to auction that we purchased through the donation to his Rattletrap project.


Ok, now this sort of bothers me. I understand work commitments, etc. but I can't help but feel that Mr. Dunne agreed to come merely to publicize his Rattletrap project. I know I never would have contributed to it (heck, I never would have even known about it) if it hadn't been for this convention.

When a guest is no longer able to attend we make a point of adding a new guest in their place. We will also be releasing an official statement about the guests shortly.

I always thought it would be fun to help organize something like this, but now, not so much.  I don't think my nerves could take it.  Thank you to all for the hard work and long hours you're putting in to make sure Gatecon is a success.  ROCK ON!!!

Thanks Pam,

I'll be one of the five people in a straightjacket at the convention :)

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!  :)

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.  :)

If we could get any of the DeLuise's that would be awesome :)

There's still plenty of folks we haven't heard from.  Vanessa Angel, Andee Frizzell and Musetta Vander were gracious enough to visit with us at previous CONs, maybe...And wouldn't it be a treat if we could coax Ming-Na Wen, and Robert Carlyle from Universe?  I'm sure you have a list of everyone who ever set foot on the set of any of the Stargates.  Each and everyone adds to the excitement and enjoyment.  Is there any limitation on how many guests we can invite?

wow reading through this thread and seeing all the additions and cancellations --it's a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. It is disappointing that the main reasons I wanted to attend all ended up cancelling but I've never been to Vancouver before and probably won't get this chance again so I'm definitely going to make the most of it. Thank you so much to the organizers and everyone involved in trying to make this con the best experience, I can't wait to me all of you in person!  :D

ps. What about Alaina Huffman from SGU?

Any chance of getting Ming-Na Wen to come and perhaps bring her current co-star Clark Gregg.  Yes I know Clark Gregg was never in Stargate, but I don't mind :O)

I posted this on the FB page, but thought I'd put it here too.  I saw David in  Chicago and he was fantastic. 

"David Blue ‏@DavidBlue 16h16 hours ago

I would love to come to more conventions. Sadly, I'm not getting invited. You guys want me there, ask the con organizers!"

So considered yourself asked♥ ♥ ♥

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! :)

I tweeted to David Blue concerning if he's been asked to Phoenix Comicon. I know there's a "fan base" factor. Waiting for his response.

How about asking Louis Gossett Jr. and David Palffy, they would be great to have.

Haven't heard from David Blue. :( He has restarted his OOTB podcasts. Just don't know why he doesn't get asked to conventions.
