Hi Krisz,
It will really depend on whether we have already reached capacity by then selling full weekend tickets.

Will we be able to purchase day passes at all? I'm not sure if I can attend on the Friday due to the con happening during a busy time at work and I'm not sure if I can get time off.

Our Guest List / Re: Guest Chat

Awesome guest list as always, I love meeting the lovely people who entertained me so much over the years. It really is like meeting old friends again each time. I love hearing about what latest projects they are doing and we still get some gems of memories when they remember an event during their time on Stargate they may not have recounted before.

Any SGU guests we get is a nice bonus for me (Louis Ferreira is someone I'd love to meet), strangely enough there are some of us weird folk that really liked SGU......shock....horror....  ;D  :P!!

I've been contemplating about flying to Seattle on Southwest (I should have enough points for a RT by then) and then take the train from Seattle to Vancouver.  Any suggestions?

I was contemplating the same scenario with airlines, but the train schedule overlaps flights. It's the same flying into Portland to catch the Amtrak Cascades into Vancouver. :(

Submitted a transfer via TransferWise for the next two payments on my Platinum ticket.  It was a piece of cake since the info was saved in my account with them.  Transfer is schedule to go through on Monday, the 18th.  Thanks for introducing me to this fantastic service ♥♥♥♥

Here I am Atlantia, just to reassure you I haven't gated to the planet with the black hole!

Great to see so many new people, welcome all and hopefully I get to meet some, if not all of you.  :)

As always I love going to get togethers before cons. At the moment I can't commit due to it being the busy time at work. A drive to Richmond and back home after a long day at work and up again early after a late night out during the work week is something this old bird is not good at any more!

If the situation changes over the next year, and there is still a space nearer the time I'm in!  :)
