So Hello ALL! 8)

Names Nikki, I'm 27 and have loved Stargate for as long as I knew it was around.... I live in Florida in the USA and it is hot, hot, hot....

This will be my first convention ever and my first Stargate event I go to, *Gasp* I know that rock I lived under finally got picked up and moved lol... I love to draw, write, and enjoy traveling....

Ummm lets see I am a HUGE Amanda Tapping fan and cannot wait to see her :) I like Mortal Kombat and The Sims games, I do awesome Halloween costumes/makeup on myself every year, and I am super excited to visit Canada for the first time!

Also I got the Golden Ticket ;P, Also my Girlfriend and her son will be with me to see Vancouver but will be passing on the convention itself so looking to meet new friends and have a good time as well!

Message me with any cool tips, pointers, or info you think I might like... Look out for this rookie y'all!

Hi Nikki,

Welcome to the group. I am coming from Australia and later on I will be organising a dinner for all that want to come and say hi. This is not an official Gatecon dinner, just some of us getting together to meet each other. You will be welcome to join. 😄

where were you thinking of going? and when :P I'm probably heading to Van at Easter, I can look into places if needs be.
also you, organising dinner? can i say "uh oh" yet, honey? :P no? daaaamn :P i miss your face, you crazy ozzie !

 Hey, you can tuck your "uh oh" away!  😛  We just went to Harrolds last time. It's in the Hotel itself. Probably Tuesday or Wednesday night. There were a few people that had mobility issues and this place was very good. They put us down the back and sectioned the area off from the main restaurant.

We ended up with 35-40 people attending last time. It is fairly quiet, but people ordered what they could afford and paid on the way out. I was pleased with how everyone had that common thread and the conversations just started rolling. 😃

I am also thinking of going to Pier 73. I have been told it is a little more pricey but it is down by the river. Lunch would be good there. 😄

Atlantia I've set you up with a dedicated thread for the pre-con dinner/lunch here on the Gategoers board rather than it being in amongst other threads.

Locked at the moment but just give me a shout when you are ready to start planning.

Thanks Richard. 😎 Throwing another bottle of wine in the luggage! I wonder how many they will let me bring? 🍷

Sorry. On phone and it doesn't seem to agree on me editing previous post.
You say you're from Florida. Dunno how safe but with that hurricane about you take care okay? And come say hi when it's passed. Don't know you but it'll be nagging the back of my mind I think, so I'd love to know you're okay. Stay safe! Xoxo


I am around the middle of the middle of Florida...but, I am actually a Federal Prison Officer and will be working during it. I will post Monday or Tuesday :)

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.  :)

Hello!
My name is Denise, I'm 22 years old and live in Austria. I just discovered the world of Stargate not long ago. Actually started to watch it after I have seen Sanctuary and fell in love with Amanda Tapping  ;D So since I was too late for AT10 in the UK to meet Amanda - I found out about Gatecon and I thought "Yeah, why not?" So here I am, bought the gold ticket and travel alone to Canada since none of my friends have the time or the money. Actually I'm freaking scared to travel alone, but I want to do this so badly for myself, meet my idol and of course to meet other fans like me! I will stay 11 days, plan a trip to Vancouver Island before the Con and after the Con I'll be in Vancouver Downtown  - that's the plan yet. So if anyone is there alone too - let me know haha I could need a companion there :D It will be my first con ever and I'm excited to meet you all!
Big hugs
Denise <3
PS: If somone has Twitter - you can also contact me there under the name: Moonlight1012  ;)

Hi Denise,
Welcome to the group. A lot of us travel alone then meet up when we get to Vancouver. You are going to love it! I have dinner on the go for Wednesday night. You are most welcome to join us. There is a thread about it somewhere on this forum. Also as we get closer to the date there will be lots of events to go somewhere or do something. Keep your eyes peeled.
More to come. 😃

Hi Atlantia!
Thank you for the welcome! :) I read about your dinner after I wrote this post here. It sounds good to me, but I'm not sure I would make it this day since I plan to stay in Vancouver Island for 3 days and return back to Richmond on Wednesday - at least that's how I plan it :) But I read Richard will maybe arrange something about a tour at the filmset on Thursday. If so - I hope to join there then. And yes, will keep my eyes open! ;)

No worries. You will know where to find us when you get ther! 😄 Buchart Gardens and the Butterfly house are on Vancouver Island. Although I spent half a day at Buchart and still could have seen more. Get your walking shoes 👞 on. 🤗
