Volunteering at Gatecon / Re: Sunday Schedule

Thanks for posting the schedules. I wasn't sure how to get hold of Sharon Drake directly so I sent an email about Sunday autograph sessions to the general volunteer email address that was provided.

This is a reply to Highlander II post of 21 July:
I attended Gatecon for the first time last year and had a blast! After attending the Creation Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas last week, I can honestly say that Gatecon was much more organized, better run, and definitely a better overall fan experience!  I definitely preferred it over the big Creation event. Although I enjoyed the Star Trek Convention, it was run more like a business and seemed so much more impersonal and unorganized.

Of course there will always be small hiccups and glitches whenever planning/organizing an event of this magnitude. You will also always have guests cancel at the very last minute due to one reason or another - this even happened at the Star Trek Convention. They were celebrating TNG's 30th anniversary and Jonathan Frakes cancelled the day after the convention started due to unforseen circumstance.
Finally, there will always be people complaining (some more chronic than others) about one thing or another - I learned a long time ago that people are always happiest when they have something to complain about.

I want to thank all of the hard working organizers for putting this together again this year. You are really appreciated!! I plan on volunteering again this year and encourage everyone else to volunteer - its the best way to do your part (in my humble opinion).

Finally, if you know who I am (which you probably don't) and you hear me complaining, feel free to kick me (very gently please). Thanks again for making this happen!

Paul McGillion is at the Star Trek Convention and when I asked him whether he was coming to Gatcon next year, he said he knew it was occurring but he was not invited. He sounded like he would be very interested in attending!  I believe he also said that he lives in Vavcouver so he would be right there.

This opportunity is so exciting! In the event I am fortunate enough to be one of the top 20, I have a couple questions:
1. Will we be able to get a second copy of the print from this photo shoot and how much would that cost? I definitely want a print to have RDA autograph as a personal item but I would also like to have an additional print without the autograph, or at least the JPG that I can print myself. Is that possible (either the extra print or JPG)?
2. Since the transportation to the photo shoot is happening immediately after the harbor cruise, are we going to have opportunity to change clothes before the shoot if we don't want to wear our 60s clothes?

The Homecoming 8th-12th September 2016 / Re: Travel stuff
« on: June 13, 2016, 12:09:50 AM »
Wasn't sure where to post this. In the US news outlets today, it was reported that Canada had begun the process of no longer accepting Visa credit cards. It will continue to take Mastercard credit cards. I do think it goes for the debit cards also since there's a fee to use the Visa name. I can't attend Gatecon so I don't have to worry about this at this time. Many banks here in the US use the Visa brand on debit cards and credit cards. :(

The only article I read in The Wall Street Journal was that Walmart Canada will stop accepting Visa - I haven't seen anything in the news beside that.

Gategoers at The Homecoming / Re: Meet-A-Gater

Hi there, Im from the UK and travelling alone but sharing a room. 

Any other Brits going as would love to get in touch and meet you at the Con too?

I am nervous as never travellled alone before let alone to Canada.

Pleeaaaaseee get in touch, even if you are from other countries.  |I'd rather not be a loner  :(

My name is Janet and i am 54 from Essex and probably be one of the older ones going.  I have a ticket for the banquet but only only the reserve list for the Cruise and Tour.  Would love to do other things too but initially photo/autographs of the celebs.



Hi Janet. This is Jeannette again. I got your message and will send you a reply probably tonight but don't worry. There seems to be a small group of us 50 somethings that are attending and traveling alone. Maybe we can all share a table at the banquet so we don't feel so alone. l will write more later. Do you know yet when you plan on arriving?

Hi there my name is Janet and i live in UK.  This will be my first long convention and first overseas and am very nervous.  I am coming alone but luckily have been invited to share a room from a lovely lady from Oklahoma.  I don't want to be a loner and hope to meet some Facebook friends and meet new ones too.  I am old, i am 54 anyone around my age going, although I don't care what age you are really.  I have booked ticket for Banquet too.
Contact or email me please, look forward to meeting new people.  I will be arriving on 7th but dont know what time yet.
Any advice would be good too please.

Hi Janet. I am Jeannette, 57 years old, and also coming alone. This is also my first convention. I am a bit nervous because I am not used to traveling by myself. My traveling companion has always been my son, who is an adult now :-[. I am really looking forward to this event and know we will have a great time! I am going on the cruse, tour, and attending the banquet. Although I am only coming from Michigan, I don't know if I will make it back to Vancouver so figured I'd do all three. Look forward to meeting you.

Hi. I'm Jeannette and I'm flying in from Michigan. I am really looking forward to attending my first Gatecon and seeing Vancouver. It has been 25 years since I have visited Vancouver. I have to admit I am a bit apprehensive since I am coming by myself, don’t know anyone, and am probably a bit older than many attendees (although I could be wrong). In any event, I am really excited about attending and meeting people! Please humor my insecurities, but what has been the age range of Gatecon attendees?  ;)
