Will still photography be allowed during the cruise? I would like to take some landscape photos for my quilting projects.

By all means take your cameras. We won't be allowing any posed shots with the actors though, for obvious reasons.

Thanks. I had already thought the actors were off limits. :)

I've registered to the mailing list for the three events, but I haven't got any mail back... Did I do something wrong?

From what I understood, it was a generated list of people interested in going. When tickets are available to buy, we will know if there are any seats left for all the events. All I received was a request to confirm the email address but nothing confirming holding a ticket.

Yes it appears so from what the cruise company told me...assistance from crew to get on board and a lift up to the washroom.

Yes, I was referring to a confirmation mail, which I got, 2 out of 3, maybe it just took some time to auto-reply- Hopefully by morning I'll have the last one u.u If not I'll bother Richard XD

Please read the following in full

Very many thanks for registering your interest in the banquet, the filming location tour and the harbour cruise.
You may have signed up for one, two or all three of the exciting optional extras, but this is just to give you advance notice of what happens next. This information only applies to the folks who joined the reservations lists for the add-ons.


We will be staggering the sales for each add-on, starting with the harbour cruise on 15th January, followed two weeks later by the filming tour, and two weeks after that the banquet.

This, we hope, will help to spread the cost for you, and will also give us a chance to keep on top of things too.

The procedure will be the same as when you purchased your convention tickets. You will receive an automated email from the store telling you there is a new item ready to be purchased. You will just need to log-in to your member's area to complete the purchase through Paypal (this is the account you set up when you purchased your convention ticket and NOT your forum user name and password. If someone else bought your convention ticket just follow the simple instructions to access your Gatecon store account***). Please remember you can still use your credit/debit card via Paypal even if you do not have a Paypal account.

You will also be required to select your meal options for each activity at the same time as completing your purchase.

Please note, as the harbour cruise takes place on the first day, we will email out your tickets in advance. The ones for the banquet and the location tour will be included in your welcome pack.

IMPORTANT: payment for each add-on must be received within TWO weeks of each launch date. If you are nearing the deadline we will send you a reminder but after that the slot may be offered to the waiting list. We are sure you appreciate the need to get payments in on time.

So in summary:

- Harbour cruise tickets will be available in the Member's Area on 15th January. Payment must be received by 31st January.
- City Filming Location Tour tickets will be in the Member's Area on 01st February and must be paid for by 14th February
- The Banquet tickets will be in the Member's Area on 15th February and these must be paid for by 29th February

You will be sent an email on each occasion to let you know when they are ready to be purchased - so you won't need to keep logging in to check. Sales are only currently being offered to the people who joined the reservations list. Please make sure with your travel partners that you are not making duplicate bookings for the tours or banquet as this also falls under the no refunds policy.

Once tickets to the harbour cruise, city tour and banquet have been purchased they are non-refundable, but in the event you are no longer able to take part it is allowable to sell on your ticket provided the purchaser already holds a valid ticket to The Homecoming. You would need to provide us with their name and email address should you sell on your ticket. We also advise that you check with us first to make sure they do have a valid convention ticket as we cannot be held responsible for any failed transactions between parties.

By purchasing one of the add-ons you agree to our terms and conditions.

If there are any non-payments or seats become available after the 29th February these will then be offered to the rest of the ticket holders.


For anyone not on the reservations list there are still plenty of banquet tickets available so please feel free to sign up now, or you can wait until they go on general sale in March.

***If someone else bought your convention ticket a user account will still have been set up automatically for you. All you need to do is to go to the gatecon.com/members area, select "forgot password" and enter the email address the buyer used for your ticket.

Trying not to get too excited. Got 5 months of a teaching temporary part time job (to earn the cash for this) and then another 3 months! It's too early to get excited, especially with Chevron to come in April :)
