Just an FYI, I made two reservations for the YVR to Victoria Inner Harbor flight, and learned that the discount code doesn't work for online reservations.  You have to call Harbour Air, and they'll make the reservation and put in the code for you.  They won't charge your credit card when you make your reservation; they'll charge it at check-in and apply the discount then.  I would assume that it works the same way for the tours.

This discount saved us 60 CAD each, so many thanks to the Gatecon organizers for setting this up.   :)

Does anyone know what time the banquet starts? 

Please remove my name from the list.  I won't arrive in Vancouver until after 9:00 that evening.   :(

Please add trupi and nell to the list.   :)

Please add me as well.

I can't answer this one I'm afraid as I haven't seen the store page yet! Allan and Richard have been working through the night to implement  the the new seating allocation, making it impossible to go back to the colour block idea. We will do our best to make sure groups sit together as long as they are bought at roughly the same time but cannot make any promises. There's only so much we can do, guys!

I hate to appear stupid, but I'd like to clarify:  From the Gatecon  home page, do we click on "Tickets" or "Store" to get started?   :-[

Once you make it into the site and select your number of tickets, will they be reserved until you finish entering the names and email addresses, or will you have to race to enter all of the information and click submit before you get the tickets?

Try calling the hotel directly at 800-663-0299 and tell them you want to make a reservation for the Gatecon convention next September.  I think the Gatecon block is sold out right now, but Richard said they were going to try to negotiate some more rooms.   :)

I'm Julie and this will be my second Gatecon.  :D  I went in 2008 and it was fabulous!  RDA, Amanda, Colin, Corin, and about 10 other Stargate regulars were there.  I think that was RDA's first con, and, while he was kind of shy, he came out and ran the auction and the crowd went wild.  I'm really excited to see Gatecon come back after all these years and am looking forward to all the con activities and meeting new fans.

I'm a librarian from Philadelphia.  See you next year!

I just tried to make my reservation for Sept. 8 - 13, and, although they had a selection for Gatecon in their computer, they were unable to reserve a room.  The computer said "gate block not found" whatever that means.  I went ahead and reserved a room at the regular hotel rate ($279) and they said to call back after the con organizers have straightened it out, and they'll switch it to the Gatecon rate.

The problem has been rectified.  I just got an email confirmation with the Gatecon rate of $199/night.  Thanks for your help, Richard.   :D
