I'm Mags  ;D  Short, blond, busy, and loud.  Been with Gatecon from the first con.  Also known as Mini-Fryn. (Can I still claim that title now that Stef is staff?)  I've done just about every volunteer job there is but I wouldn't trade any of the experiences for anything.  So excited for 2016 and seeing the family again. ;D

Hi! I'm Stacy! I'm super excited! I've been to lots of cons but never to a Gateon. I have heard only good things about Gatecon so I can't wait! I live in Colorado, I have a family but will be coming by myself (cons are my special mommy only time!) Can't wait to meet new friends!

Welcome Stacy and I hope this will be the first of many.  Look for me, I'll be wearing a bright pink staff shirt. lol

I'm Highlander II (or H2) and I've been to most of the Gatecons - I think I've missed 4 of the 10 and 2 of those b/c I didn't know about them!

I'm planning to get to this one... somehow. 

I'm usually sporting red hair of some variety and, if I get to go, I'll be in some flavor of volunteer shirt.  Maybe staff, maybe one step down, who knows yet! 

Oh - and I can attest to Mags being loud! XD

Hi I'm Yahanna!! I sorta went to Gatecon in Vancouver way back when but now I'm coming to attend for real this time and fully experience it start to finish, inside and out, top to bottom! I'm from Seattle and am totally addicted to Vancouver. I'm super excited that Gatecon is coming back to Vancouver cause I've been crossing my fingtoes that it would!

You think the pink and the red will clash too badly?   If it does, I'll just get RDA to draw something on it in black marker to hide some of the pink.  Think he'd go for it? XD

Ok so I can't tell you how excited I am to see that Gatecon is returning.  I attended 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004.  Looking forward to possibly seeing some old friends from those early years.   ;D

Post by: Tanya on September 15, 2015, 12:27:38 PM
Hi, I'm Tanya.

I was able to go to four Gatecons (2003, 2004, 2008, 2010). I purchased a ticket to the first one while under the influence of medication (don't ask), and once I was thinking clearly again and confirmed I'd really done that (which took a few days), and realized the ticket was non-refundable, I reviewed my finances and decided I could afford it so, okay, let's do this. I'd never been to a real con before, and I kept thinking I was crazy to be going all the way to Canada to attend a convention (even if I did love Stargate!), but I nervously bought a plane ticket and nervously connected with other GateGoers to split hotel costs, and nervously made plans to see Vancouver (because if I was going that far, I wanted to see more than the hotel). And then I had pretty much the best time I'd ever had in my life!

For the 2008 Gatecon, I ended up getting a new job and moving across the country about 2 weeks before the con. When I got the job offer, I accepted it only on the condition I could take a week off pretty much immediately after starting the job. Honestly, had they said no, I planned to turn down the job. But they agreed to it (though a bit reluctantly...) and my 2008 Gatecon plans went forward   ;D

So, yeah... totally excited for Gatecon 2016!!

Hi everyone! I'm Merri and this will be my very fist Gatecon! I am so excited! Just booked the hotel for me and my best friend and fellow Stargate superfan. We've gone to lots of cons, we go to SDCC every year and have been to the last 4 or 5 Creation Stargate cons, but have always regretted never being able to attend a Gatecon. So glad they are back and look forward for many more to come!!

Hi,

My name is Tessa. In the fandom I'm known as Tessa (Mac). I'm a Dutchie (that is: from the Netherlands (aka Holland). No, we don't speak German (well I do, a little) and no, it is not the capital of Denmark). My first Gatecon was in 2001. I'm glad I made it, even if I had to fly 3 days later than planned. Amazing con. My last one was in 2008, where I got to walk around with the official shouldercam. Hopefully I'll be able to join the techcrew again next year! It will be great seeing all of you (again)!

Hi folks, I'm Natalie.  I've never been to a Stargate con of any kind.  This one just happens to fall just around my birthday and when one of my best friends in the world is visiting me from England, so we've decided to fold the con into our vacation.  We'll be coming up from around San Francisco.

You won't miss us, we're the pair of folks on crutches or cane (she's crutches, I'm cane) clinging to each other because we won't likely know anyone else.  I'm also doing this con, in spite of my agoraphobia and am slightly terrified (read that as absolutely petrified).  It looks like this will be bigger than any of them I've ever done, and for most of those I knew enough folks to blunt the edges a bit.

So...sorry from the get go if I get quiet and unresponsive (start of a panic attack) or overly talkative and blithering (really anxious and trying to stave off panic)....and that's probably more than you wanted to know about me anyway.

Hi Natalie,
That's really inspiring to hear of your determination to come in spite of the agoraphobia, but don't worry, after a year here at Gategoers you will have a great many friends waiting to welcome you in Vancouver.

Are you driving up from San Fran or flying? I've done the drive southwards and what a fantastic scenic route it is. Loved every mile of it.

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!

Hi!  I don't use my real name online, because it's unique, to say the least.  Yahanna knows me though! I've never been to a Gatecon, because we were living in Europe during every single one.  My hubs is military, and we are currently stationed just south of Seattle.  I will be there come hell or high water.  My husband, 13yo son, and I are all huge SG fans (the 4yo is a fan in the making), but I'm the only one who will attend Gatecon.  I'm taking a 'momcation,' along with a bunch of my friends from Ireland, and England.  I've been to several cons (2 with RDA as a guest), including SGCHI twice, but I cannot wait for this one.

Post by: PamK1950 on September 16, 2015, 07:13:59 PM
Hi, I'm Pam

This will be my first Gatecon.  I really didn't get into Stargatefandom until 2010 when I attended RDA's Meet the Man in Vancouver.  That is also when I fell in love with Vancouver and the people I met, even though the majority of them were Canucks fans. (I'm from Chicago - need I say anymore?)

I've been a volunteer at the last four Chicago Stargate cons.  Through that, I've learned Stargate fans are not really the crazy people I had once perceived them to be.  They are wonderful, passionate fans of one of the best, if not the best, SciFy show ever.  And I'm proud to say I'm one of them.

Hi all!!!

My name as you can guess is Marta, I'm italian (so I'l come all the way from Italy for this event!), I tried to attend Gatecon in 2010, had the ticket and all, but a bit of 'appendix' problem caused me to stay put and grounded on italian soil, needless to say I was kinda pissed/depressed...

I'm soooooooo looking forward to attend next year because it's gonna be huge, and it's gonna be a blast!
I hope to have the chance to meet you there!!!  ;)

We're probably going to fly, since my roommate for the con is coming from England and we're putting the con in the middle of her 2 week visit, we want to maximize our time in each location. 

I do my best not to let my agoraphobia keep me away from things I love. I've only attended small cons, mostly in England, but I do a lot of live music gigs as a photographer.  I've learned some techniques that help me function, but most of those aren't really do-able with a con (they involve getting to a venue early, before the crowds, usually standing at the front where I can't *see* the crowd, and stuff like that.  With assigned seating....it's always terrifying and a battle to control what is in my field of vision).

I've attended most Gatecons, have volunteered at all to them as one of Robbins Jaffa and hope to do this again. It's always great fun to do.

I am currently rewatching SG as one of my passions is making costumes. And I'm looking for an interessting costume to make for next year. Will be hard, if not imposible as I've done my most favorite costumes already.

Anyway, SSOOOOOOO looking forward to this. It's been to long since I went to (any) convention and I miss it!

Unfortunately I tend to fall into the wrong - or maybe right depending on how you look at it - person. Went to a Buffy/Angel convention one time and lost track of the number of times I nearly tripped into Christian Kane!
And I once ran Misha Collins over with my wheelchair at a Supernatural convention

Unfortunately I tend to fall into the wrong - or maybe right depending on how you look at it - person. Went to a Buffy/Angel convention one time and lost track of the number of times I nearly tripped into Christian Kane!
And I once ran Misha Collins over with my wheelchair at a Supernatural convention

See, told ya it works :P

Hi everyone, I'm Gemma from England...Essex specifically so I'm sure people will spot me as my accent (I'm told) is pretty strong. I've done a lot of conventions in the UK in the last 11 years, and volunteered / worked the majority of them doing everything from queues, q&a and guest liaison until due to personal reasons i fell out of the con circuit for a little while. But I missed cons so much that I started going again 2 years ago to see old friends.

I've been to two Gatecons (2005 & 2006) and made so many friends and so many wonderful memories...those cons are still the best times I ever had! And me and my now lifelong friends still talk about those times! I also completely fell in love with Vancouver and have visited twice since, as well as apply for a VISA....I will happily be landing in Vancouver in May 2016 to start my new life in Canada. I am just hoping I am somewhat settled (and not completely poor) by September.

Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

Gem xo

Hi I'm Jamie and I'm from Lancaster, Pennsylvania! This will be my first Gatecon and only my second Stargate convention. I usually stick with Star Wars Celebration but this past spring I stumbled across conventions for Stargate, so here I am. I will be going solo but hopefully I will get to meet up with a few people I met in Chicago this past August, and I'm sure I will make some new friends.

I can't wait til next year! I have never been to Vancouver and am hoping and can add a day or two to see some of the sights. My job just gave me the okay to take the time off now I just need to save, save, save.

*waves* Hi, I'm Cassie - the cripple that Natalie mentioned a page back or so. Flying in from England because I'm completly and utterly insane but we kind of live for Shenanigans. Life is short and I never want to wake up one day and go 'Oh, I wish I'd done...'

Like Natalie said, you won't miss us - I'm the short English one that will look incredibly lost and doesn't know what her right leg is doing, has a habit of falling into people and tripping over the floor... Yup, thats me! :D

Hi All,
Atlantia here. I'm from Perth Western Australia. I have been to a few conventions now. As a matter of fact I leave for Sydney on Thursday. Oz Comic con. RDA, David Hewlett, Rachael Luttrell and a slew of others from Harry Potter, Lost Girl, Charmed & Game of Thrones to name a few. I am looking forward to going back to Vancouver and meeting old and new friends.

I have set up a meet and greet dinner page under the homecomming banner for those interested.

I'm Jade Rachel, I'm from London in England and I enjoy pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.. no, hold on, that's not quite right. Let's try that again. I've only started going to conventions in the last year or so, with my teenage daughter who I'm proud is growing up a geek - we've been to the likes of LFCC but never to a Stargate event. The possibility has me excited and utterly terrified at the same time.

I think volunteering is great. You don't have to volunteer your whole weekend away. Don't tell them I said so, but they have a pretty cool set up. Do a little or do alot, just don't miss out on the things you are interested in.
BTW Welcome....Wwwhhhooooohahahaha 😊

It's true - you can volunteer in an area that just has 4-hour shifts (way shorter than it sounds), or somewhere where you're working the whole con. 

Being a 'room roamer' would put you in the main auditorium making sure people don't use flash after the 5-min window or video tape things.  Being a minion for Robbin means corralling people for photos and autographs.  There really are endless possibilities. =)

You think the pink and the red will clash too badly?   If it does, I'll just get RDA to draw something on it in black marker to hide some of the pink.  Think he'd go for it? XD


It'll depend on which shade of red you chose this year. :D  As for RDA, maybe.

If I end up in pink, I'm putting you in charge of convincing him to un-pink my shirt so I don't clash! XD

Long overdue, it seems.

I'm from the Vancouver area and this will be my first Gatecon. I was completely unaware of Stargate-related conventions until 2010, when I went to my first convention, a Creation Star Trek con in Vancouver headlined by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. While waiting in one of the autograph lines, one of the girls in line with me mentioned the Stargate con and in April the following year just after the cancellation of SGU, I attended my first Creation Stargate con. It was also after that Star Trek con that I learned about the Meet The Man convention the following month but, as I had exhausted my funds, I was unable to get a ticket.

I've only ever been to one con outside of Vancouver, that being last year's Creation Stargate con in Chicago. I generally dislike air travel, so I really do prefer cons which are close to home. The only trade-off with the convenience of being able to commute is I tend to have to sacrifice evening events in order to get home before the buses stop running for the night.

I'm looking forward to the return of Gatecon and finally being able to see THE Richard Dean Anderson. It's the best of both worlds.

This will be my first time at Gatecon as well. I did go to some Trek cons in the 1990s (when I was in college), but it's been many, many years since I've been to anything like this.

Coming up from Texas - this will be my first time in Canada. Should be cool.

I just found the website about the con this morning - so, I was happy to still be able to get a ticket.

I watched all three Stargate series when they were on tv - but I've recently been buying the new packs of Sg1 episodes on DVD and rewatching them. Up to season 8 right now. Man, I miss that show. I loved catching it every week when it was on.

Hi, I am originally from England, and when I lived there I DREAMT of going to a Stargate Con in Vancouver and hoped one day I could go.  Then I moved to Ontario , and although I was closer, I still couldn't afford the flight and accommodation etc, then I found there was a convention in Chicago, which is not that far from where I live, so I have been to the Chicago conventions for the last few years.

I am thrilled that I am now in a position to be able to afford a trip to Vancouver and go to this Convention.

Hello - I'm Debbie from Ohio.   This will be my first Gatecon, and it will be the farthest I've traveled yet for a convention!  The best thing about cons is being surrounded by people who share the same interest and get the jokes, so I'm eager to spend a weekend with all of you!

That is pretty cool. I've always had to skip them in the past for the same reasons, since I am way down here in Texas. But, I'm giving up my annual Philadelphia hockey trip I make in order to go to this instead :)

So, I know how ya feel.

Bless.. Hiya Sharon (and Gemma)..
I'm flying from the UK with my mum (also a Sharon)..
I'm sure you'll do grand, flying isn't so bad once take off happens...
Atlantia has/is arranging a pre-convention meet and greet before the whole shindig happens so feel free to pop your name on the list and come along and meet some of us crazy people's.
Don't be afraid to message any of us, pretty sure we are all friendly here :)!
And of course ask questions if you aren't sure on anything...
Don't be shy! :)

Hi Barbara!!! Welcome aboard!!!

I'm in Season 3 - and am really enjoying it.  A great show (I'm sure I'll get no argument about that.)

No argument there XD, but if you're a shipper brace yourself for season four and the following four... *goes back in her dark corner* XD

Uh-Oh.  What's a 'shipper'?????  Will I need to join you in the 'dark corner'????

(I actually read that first as 'stripper' - had me confused for a second.)

We might need a shipper welcome party for you my dear! Lol
And hahahahaha!
Stripper... Well...

Dark corners can be fun too....

I'm Lauren and I'm from the UK. This will be my first Gatecon and I'm so looking forward to it, it so happens that I'll be living in Vancouver next year, so when I heard about this convention it was a no brainer. I know quite a few people who are attending from previous conventions, mainly the AT ones, including Claire and Nonnie.

Beginning to think I've got a whole row to myself, no one else seems to be on row K.

Hi everyone, I`m Susanne from Germany and this will be my first con ever. I come by myself (found no one around who is so SG-1 crazy like me - my record on watching the complete seasons is 1 1/2 weeks) but here in the community I feel like coming home. I can`t wait to meet you all next September in Vancouver!! Never been there before and I`m absolutely excited, thrilled and oooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh I just burst  ;D. But first and foremost I have to sJaffa Creee up the money for this absolutely funky trip (even if I have to make a bank robbery). I want to be part of every tour and have as much fun as possible.

My seat is M38, anyone else in M? Took a while to make this decision but if I hadn`t I`d regret this for the rest of my life. Right?

Hi everyone, I`m Susanne from Germany and this will be my first con ever. I come by myself (found no one around who is so SG-1 crazy like me - my record on watching the complete seasons is 1 1/2 weeks) but here in the community I feel like coming home. I can`t wait to meet you all next September in Vancouver!! Never been there before and I`m absolutely excited, thrilled and oooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh I just burst  ;D. But first and foremost I have to sJaffa Creee up the money for this absolutely funky trip (even if I have to make a bank robbery). I want to be part of every tour and have as much fun as possible.

My seat is M38, anyone else in M? Took a while to make this decision but if I hadn`t I`d regret this for the rest of my life. Right?

So bye for now

Hiya Susanne!
Welcome to the madness! I'm Honor, from Scotland!
Look forward to seeing you there!
And lol...
Jaffa Cree! It works I swear!

Hi, I am originally from England, and when I lived there I DREAMT of going to a Stargate Con in Vancouver and hoped one day I could go.  Then I moved to Ontario , and although I was closer, I still couldn't afford the flight and accommodation etc, then I found there was a convention in Chicago, which is not that far from where I live, so I have been to the Chicago conventions for the last few years.

I am thrilled that I am now in a position to be able to afford a trip to Vancouver and go to this Convention.

That's great that you can come this time! When did you move from England to Ontario? How did you find the whole move? I'm constantly stressed.com at the moment.

Just realised I forgot to introduce myself.

I'm Lauren and I'm from the UK. This will be my first Gatecon and I'm so looking forward to it, it so happens that I'll be living in Vancouver next year, so when I heard about this convention it was a no brainer. I know quite a few people who are attending from previous conventions, mainly the AT ones, including Claire and Nonnie.

Beginning to think I've got a whole row to myself, no one else seems to be on row K.

Hi Lauren! You'll love Gatecon I'm sure, it's so much fun. When are you moving over to Van? I've booked my one way flight for May xo

Ok! Ok! Sit down in front! Throws Jaffas from row E!  😇

Do we get to throw Jaffa? Really? We're a cool bunch of fellas in row E *is proud*

On second thought... Can we throw the muscled ones and keep the cakes? (jaffa cakes of course)

So many types of Jaffa's, so little time! 😲

Hi! I'm trekz, David, from Chicago, Illinois, US. I'm very excited to be going to my first Gatecon, with my significant other, Shelley. I've been to a few Stargate cons in Chicago, including the last couple. As you can guess by my moniker, I have attended quite a few conventions dealing with another sci-fi series starting with the word Star, lol. Looking forward to meeting lots of the friendly people who've already posted. We were in Vancouver in September, and are excited to go back. Shelley is looking forward to going to Victoria, which I've visited a couple times on my own, plus seeing a bit more of Vancouver than downtown, Chinatown and Stanley Park, all of which we enjoyed!

We'll be in seats K26 and K 27.

I love just getting on the Skytrain and randomly getting off places :) Richmond is quite different from the main part of Vancouver and less touristy which is what I like, the less touristy stuff.

Victoria is fun, it's been a while since I've gone. I love their museums, especially The Wax museum.

Haven't done the Skytrain, sounds like fun! I really like Victoria. My favorite museum there is the BC one (great exhibits) and the Totem poles nearby. I remember an uproar years ago, when they started charging for entrance to the BC one, which seemed a reasonable price to me. But then, I'm used to Chicago prices, sadly...

The spouse unit and I have been to Vancouver a couple times, and both times opted to visit Victoria.  We did a Whale Watching excursion, and made sure we had time to wander through the Butchart Gardens.

I'm over the moon that a Stargate con has come back to Vancouver again, and am really looking forward to meeting old friends as well as making new ones. I've attended two Gatecons in Vancouver in 2008 and 2010 and had so much fun. Gatecon has a great fun atmosphere and it's wonderful that Gatecon is back!

My seat is M38, anyone else in M? Took a while to make this decision but if I hadn`t I`d regret this for the rest of my life. Right?

Hi everyone!!
I am Maria and come from Germany. I've been to a couple of other Stargate cons but never to a Gatecon. I became a Stargate fan after SG1 got cancelled. But since then I am hooked. Although I watch plenty of other shows Stargate is my number one go to show to have a good time. It will always have a special place in my heart.
I've met RDA already twice in Germany at a con and he is such a funny and gracious man! Love him!
When I heard about the Homecoming I got soooooooo excited and decided on the spot that I must have a ticket at all costs! And I got lucky and I sit in place J38. I am also happy to meet again some friends, who I usually get a chance to meet at cons and I am looking forward to get to know plenty of new Stargate crazy like minded fans! Can't wait to see you all and have a great time with the actors during this time! So I hope September 2016 is approaching fast and to making new friends!!
See you there!

I am also happy to meet again some friends, who I usually get a chance to meet at cons and I am looking forward to get to know plenty of new Stargate crazy like minded fans! Can't wait to see you all and have a great time with the actors during this time! So I hope September 2016 is approaching fast and to making new friends!!
See you there!

Greetings!  My name is Laurie and I'm from Montana. I've been to several cons, but this will be my first Gatecon!!!   Haven't quite nailed down my travel yet, but do know that I will not be doing Greyhound bus all the way as I did the last time I went to Vancouver  :-\  Counting the days!

Hello Laurie,  I am from Australia. I haven't nailed down my travel plans yet either. I am still waiting for my new passport. Its only been 14 days ago that I  sent it in to be renewed. I wish it would get here quickly but i am told it can take up to 6 weeks. 😕

Hi Maria nice to meet you here. I`m Susanne and come from Germany too. I live nereby Frankfurt/M. Where do you live?
Funny I sit 3 rows behind you M38  :D
Are you looking for a roommate? I have one bed left (5.-18.09.). I`ve already booked my flight with Condor from Frankfurt directly to Vancouver so maybe you want to go on the same - would be fun wouldn`t it?

Hi Susanne,
I live right on the North East Coast of Germany. I don't know if you have heard of Greifswald, this is the close by town, which is maybe known for its university.
I haven't quite fixed my travel plans yet due to my constantly shifting working schedule.
Thanks for the offered hotel room but I have to decline. At least this I've got covered. ;) I will check in with a few American and Canadian women whom I've met before at other Stargate conventions. That's what I was talking about when I said meeting friends from other cons. The world can be so small regarding how a fandom can keep us all together and we all meet up wherever whenever in the world. LOVE IT!
Regarding the plane -as I said before I am not sure yet what my working plan is going to be and it makes it quite difficult for me to buy any plan tickets now, but will see in the new year. Unfortunately I probably won't be joining you on a plane from Frankfurt. When I fly to Vancouver then from Berlin probably via Heathrow or Paris. Sorry.
But don't worry there is still plenty of time to meet and chat and I think it will be great meeting you there. I try to extend my vacation time longer than the expected convention time to do some sightseeing in and around Vancouver. At the moment I hope I can spend some time in Vancouver from the 5-15.9. It's not that long, but better than nothing.
What are your plans for the time before and after the con? Any specific interests? Do you like to do as many convention stuff as possible, or just the panels/autographs/picture sessions?
So many things to talk about and to get excited about.. Let's keep in touch! Will be fun meeting you and all the other great guys!

Hi Maria,
yes I`ve heard of Greifswald but never been there. How far is it from Berlin?
Of course I`d like to do as many convention stuff as possible - harbour cruise, vangroovy party, location bus tour etc. Also I`d like to discover Vancouver and surrounding when there is enough time because I like to volunteer and offered Richard a helping hand for post- and precon activities. But we`ll see.
I`m excited about the whole thing - meeting all the more (like me  ;D) or less crazy about Stargate guys, the actors and beeing on vacation on my own for the first time in my life. Can`t wait for it!!

hi all--I have been to stargate conventions thru Creation for three years and at MTM in 2010--I am 63,have short gray hair with colors of black and turquoise stripes in front.  i am a BBW and dress for comfort over fashion,  I will be attending alone and staying at the convention hotel. But due to some personal and medical issues, I am not in the  market for any room sharing etc.  But I am vey open to dining out nearby (places above fast food) and having numerous drinks.  MY walking is poor these days so I go slow with lots of breaks.  I love to laugh, love cats,and music of all gneres with an emphasis on broadway musicals.
 
I currently live in western Massachussetts and am working on my
 transportation options  for September 2016.

Drop me a line and lets chat prior to event.

A bit late, but: Happy New Year to all of you!

I'm Irena from Germany and I am a huge Stargate fan since I watched it first with my son in 2009. Since 2011 - when RDA first time came to Germany - I go to conventions with Stargate actors in our country. This one will be my first "oversea convention" and also the first strictly Stargate convention (apart from the AT in London [only with Amanda Tapping]). I'm impatiently looking forward to it and to see you all.

I read about the Homecoming shortly after we had returned from our very first travel to Canada last September ... and was sad because I thought it would not be possible to go back to Vancouver the very next year (it's a long and not cheap trip from Germany). But my husband agreed to go again although he will not attend the convention. We'll cruise to Alaska and then stay for a week in Van, so that I can attend the convention. Soooo happy ... and grateful to my husband!

The days before the convention we now can do what we couldn't make last year, especially a trip to Vancouver Island and maybe whale watching. Does anyone know where is the best place to start/book this trip (near the Sheraton)?

Hi Maria nice to meet you here. I`m Susanne and come from Germany too. I live nereby Frankfurt/M. Where do you live?
Funny I sit 3 rows behind you M38  :D
Are you looking for a roommate? I have one bed left (5.-18.09.). I`ve already booked my flight with Condor from Frankfurt directly to Vancouver so maybe you want to go on the same - would be fun wouldn`t it?

Hi Maria from Greifswald and Susanne from Frankfurt/M. (thanks for that "M" to make it clear ;) )! Ich bin ein Berliner (think our English speeking friends know the translation).

Hi SamC,

Welcome to the forum. I'm from Germany too, but have been living in Canada for a few years now.

If you want to do whale watching from Vancouver, Google whale watching Vancouver and it should give you a few options. I think most of those tours are day trips, because it takes a a while just to get out there. You'll probably have to go downtown though to catch a ship.

You can travel to Vancouver Island by plane or ferry/bus. I did the ferry/bus on a September weekend once and unfortunately the bus trip wasn't the best. bus was packed!!! It is cheaper than flying though, unless you get a good rate with Westjet or Air Canada. (or you could take a sea plane)

I did the Alaska cruise a few years ago (also in September) and i really enjoyed it. I'm planning on doing it again this year, but have nothing booked yet.

Listen to me going on and on. That was the travel agent in me talking :)

Would love to meet you and everybody else of course. I will be in seat O19.

Just one more thing, if you haven't done the Alaska cruise in September: it might be warm-ish in Vancouver but bring your winter jackets, gloves and hats. It gets very cold on the ship!!!

Thank you for the advises, Heike. :)

We hope for good weather, but of course will bring winter jackets and so on for travel to Alaska. :) Concerning the whale watching tour we are thinking of the seaplane (maybe only for one way), because we did the short harbour flight last year and is was amazing (and it's worth the money).

See you in September in row O. :D

Hi everybody!

I'm Bra'zat (that's the pseudo I use in all forums about Stargate I'm subscribe on).
I live in France near Paris.
I discover Stargate very very late, in 2006, because I come from a family that never watch TV.
But since this time, there is not 1 day where I don't think about Stargate.

I have a "foot" in almost biggest projects in France in relation with Stargate.

Props Memorabilia (on FB): that I create in 2010. It's a group who gather original items from Stargate (artworks, props, costume, set dec), in Europe. We make exhibitions during events.

Stargate Troopers (see videos of 67conan67 on YoutTube): one of the 2 main costume group in France. Our costume are screen-accurate & we make fan-films for fun & live our hobby.

Stargate Network (on FB): one of the best (to not say THE best) fan made video game on Stargate. I have the pleasure to work with the team by giving a lot of informations & photos about real props, set dec, costumes that they reproduce for the game. I also hace contact with french voices that will makes records for the game.

The Children of McGyver (translated from french LesEnfantsDeMacGyver) (on FB): is a Franco-Swiss association that reproduce a scale 1:1 functional Gate from original segment pieces of the authentic SGC gate. I helped them to get informations, HD pictures, contacts, & now help to build it.

I met over 20 Stargate actors since 2010 during events in France (but I'm sure that our friends from USA saw more ^^  :) ).

I plan to come at the Gatecon but I need first find a host. Fact is that the plane tickets + event tickets + photoshoot sessions + meals + car rental + gas, will cost me a lot (I think quite over $1000).
So, I'm looking for someone who can home me for several days.

If somebody can help, or know someone else who can help, I would really apreciate that.

Hi everyone! I'm Jen, I'm 33 and I'm from Seattle. I didn't get into Stargate until about 6 years ago, but I've been obsessed with SG-1 ever since. I cosplay as O'Neill at every con I go to. This is my first Gatecon, but definitely not my first con! Just my first Stargate-centered one. I am so excited! I'll be driving up and staying at a hotel in Langley. Nice to meet everyone!!

Photos of my cosplay (are not great quality) can be found on tumblr at stargatecosplay

Hello I am William and I am 14 years old.
I am coming over from England for GATECON 2016 with my Dad. I am looking forward to it very much.
I really enjoy watching Stargate SG1 and Atlantis.
I have been to a Chevron event in London and have met Richard Dean Anderson and David Hewlett in London at comic cons.
I am hoping to meet them again as they were very nice to me and talked to me for a while.
I will also be wearing my Jack O` Neill Stargate uniform some of the time.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
William & Dad.

Every time I  talk about my trip to people I Just want to do a happy dance around the room. We are going to have fuuunnnnn!!! 😆

Hi, I'm Sarah, but since I don't like my first name that much most people knowing me tend to call me Az (from Azeleen, original moniker on the internet), or Sov', Sovereign (to follow current one lol)

28 years old ( :o ), belgian emigrant living in the UK, I'll be coming to Gatecon & Vancouver in general from Leeds. First time in Vancouver, to be honest, so I'm a little nervous, but I have someone picking me up and another friend with whom to spend the two weeks I'll be there (including the con), so really not so bad xD

I really really suck at introducing myself and usually prefer to answer specific questions, so ask away if you feel like it xD

Until then !  :P



edit: Sovereign is not because I am a pretentious person, no. I was just cross that day, and being a gamer I was in the middle of playing Mass Effect. And I liked the sound of the bad guy's name LOL. It stuck since xD

Hi All,
Atlantia here. I'm from Perth Western Australia. I have been to a few conventions now. As a matter of fact I leave for Sydney on Thursday. Oz Comic con. RDA, David Hewlett, Rachael Luttrell and a slew of others from Harry Potter, Lost Girl, Charmed & Game of Thrones to name a few. I am looking forward to going back to Vancouver and meeting old and new friends.
I have set up a meet and greet dinner page under the homecomming banner for those interested.
Hi Atlantia
I am also from perth , hope to see you at the convention. What other conventions have you been to?

Hi Kourts, my 1st convention was back in 2007 in Vancouver. I made friends with several people and have staayed in contact ever since. I went to Gatecon in 2008 & 2010. Then Oz Comic Con really took off. I went to Melbourne, Perth every year of course and Sydney. I am spewing because Joe Flannigan is coming to Perth this year with Rachael and I  don't think I will have the funds to go. Hawaii con was so good in 2014 that i am going there after Vancouver this year.
What about 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?  ;)

Hello and welcome.  As far as the age range goes (without naming names) 😆 there are people who are very close to 80 and the youngest that I know of is 10, but I don't think he is going this year. Do you fit in there somewhere? 😆😆

Hi Jeannette - Don't worry, I'm in the same boat. I'll be 56 next year and I'm worried that the youngsters won't be able to keep up.

My sister is coming with me (our first 'sister' vacation) but we won't know anyone else. Don't worry, we'll have a great time!

I'm Amy and I'm coming up from south of Seattle (Olympia area).  I'm 48 and this will be my first Stargate con (though I watched it lovingly from day one).  Looking forward to meeting other people who love Stargate!

I'm debating whether I should drive up to Vancouver or take the train.  I like having my freedom (especially to run pick up vegan food), but I've heard the train ride is really enjoyable.  Any suggestions from locals or experienced gaters? 
Title: Re: Meet-A-Gater
Post by: Fryn on February 21, 2016, 02:43:13 AM
Hi Amy... Vancouver has a pretty good public transport system and both bus and sky train stations are only a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. You probably wouldn't need a car, unless you were thinking of going sight-seeing outside the city. Maybe do a Google search for vegan shops and then check the bus and sky train routes to see how easy it would be to get there? Thee might even be a shop like that in Richmond itself... Look forward to meeting you in September!
Title: Re: Meet-A-Gater
Post by: Krisz on February 21, 2016, 06:43:31 PM
Hi Amy, welcome. Given that there is the Sky train near the convention hotel I would take the train and use transit. The traffic in Vancouver and Richmond is bad for most of the day! I live about 19 miles East of the hotel and I'm trying to avoid having to drive to the con every day by hoping to get a room in a hotel close by for a couple of nights! You would need a car if you want to do more sightseeing outside of Vancouver as the transit system is not as good further out in the Lower Mainland. You will be able to get to the touristy places and the most popular Stargate locations using transit.

Not sure what the protocol is for introductions, I've finally recovered my password, omg sooo much to catch up on!

I'm Heidi and I'll be flying from Texas. This will be my FIRST convention and my first trip to Canada. I'm a bit nervous since I won't know a soul and having to learn the rules of con-going and what to expect. I don't really do well with large crowds and hectic pace. But this is a bucket-list type thing and I really want to make the most of it. I grew up watching Stargate with my dad (he's a huuuge RDA fan) and this event is like reliving the happy part of my childhood. I really want to meet as many people as I can and experience everything that I can!
ok well enough rambling...Hello everybody!  ;D

Hi Heidi, you've made the first step and met some people!  :) I went to my first Stargate convention on my own too! I had no idea what to expect but everyone on the forum I was on at the time were so welcoming and answered all my questions. I felt I got to know people before I got there and then I met many of them in person too, a few of them are coming to this convention so we're all meeting up again! That's how easily Stargate fans make friends and you will get to meet loads of people through sharing the one thing we're all there for, a love of Stargate!

Janet, old is a relative term.  Seems to me, you're right in the middle of the pack.  My husband and I have been to 2 Gatecons, both in Vancouver.  We arrive a couple days early, and get in a bit of fishing and touristy things.  It's a pretty long flight from UK, so I suggest you try to see some of the beauty of Vancouver in addition to all the offerings of the convention.  Don't worry about not knowing anyone.  Everyone attending is friendly, and also interested in getting acquainted.   The organizers are top notch, and, when they have time to come up for air, are some of the warmest and friendliest folks you could ever hope to meet.  Looking forward to a wonderful time with wonderful new friends.

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 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.

Hi Janet,

Atlantia here. I am originally from Surrey and have a cousin who lives in Essex. I am ever so slightly older than you, but there are alot of us in this age group. I can remember my first con and traveled by myself. I thought that I would have no one to talk to. It turned out really great, thanks to a forum such as this. There will be lots of people organising meals together, chats and a whole pletherer of things. Just stay tuned, you won't be left out. I look forward to meeting you. ☺

I love everything about Stargate and Richard and all his other work and would love to meet up with other people from the UK and other countries.  I am on Facebook too. 

I am sharing a room at the Sheraton with a lovely lady from Oklahoma whom I have made friends with on Facebook and fan groups.

Anyone out there from UK too please, I live in Essex

Hi again!

I posted earlier but since I'm now planning on bringing my dog, it was suggested that I post her name and a picture of her here too. She's a basset hound and her name is 'Hela' (Norse goddess of the underworld) because she was much darker when she was born. Her face was totally black! She's 10 weeks old now and has lightened up considerably! She'll be 9 months old by convention time and lots bigger.

(Now let's see if I can attach a picture...)

(Ok, maybe this time...)

Well, no luck.  "The upload folder is full" (whatever that means). The pictures are only about 50kb so that shouldn't be the problem. I guess I'll try again later.

To attach the picture, you'll probably have to load it to somewhere like photobucket or flickr, then link to it with the [img] tags.  I don't think we have photo-hosting turned on here.

Go here:

http://picpaste.novarata.net/

- In the middle of the screen should be a button that says: "Choose File." Click on that and select the file you want to upload.

- Then press the "Upload" button. Your image will upload and a new page will load... "Upload Successful" will be on the new page.

- Look for the third text box that says "Direct link." Click in that box, and the entire line will be highlighted. Right click your mouse and click "copy" on the menu.

- Come to your post you want to put on this site. Click the third button on the 2nd row (it says "Insert Image" if you hover over it).

- Paste your link in between the IMG tags that appear.

You are done!!!


*** Try not to upload a photo larger than 800x600 pixels - or it will be too large to see on most screens.

The first picture is of Hela sprawled out on the couch. (Tough life, huh?) The second is a close-up of her face (isn't she adorable)!

I WOULD LIKE TO MEET AS MANY FROM THE UK AS POSSIBLE WHO ARE GOING AND OBVIOUSLY FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD AND ALSO MY FLIGHT BACK TO UK IS NOT UNTIL ABOUT 5.30 PM ON THE 13TH.  I WOULD LIKE TO DO SOMETHING THAT DAY AND NOT JUST SIT AND WAIT FOR MY FLIGHT,  OBVIOUSLY NOT TOO FAR AS DON'T WANT TO MISS MY FLIGHT BACK.

WOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED IN ACCOMPANYING ME AS DON'T REALLY WANT TO BE A LONER, LOL. 

THIS IS MY FIRST GATECON AND VERY EXCITED.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT MY ROOM MATE'S PLANS ARE YET FOR THE 13TH BUT HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL CONTACT ME, PLEASE.

Hi Jel - It's a little early yet to make plans but don't worry - I'm sure a bunch of people will be in the same boat. My sister and I will be leaving on the 13th also but don't know the time yet. But don't worry - people will be around and going places/doing things. Most just don't have their plans firmed up yet. I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

Thanks for everyone's help. (I told you I wasn't computer savvy!) Let's see if it works now.

The first picture is of Hela sprawled out on the couch. (Tough life, huh?) The second is a close-up of her face (isn't she adorable)!

I'll add more pictures as she gets older. I hope all the dog-lovers at the convention come and say 'Hi' - she loves people.

She is adorable!!!  I can't wait to meet her and you. :D

I think Hela is going to steal the limelight in a whole lot of photos, and photo-bomb others.

Hello everyone

I am from the UK and travelling on my own and a little nervous and a little shy and never travelled abroad on my own before.

I love everything about Stargate and Richard and all his other work and would love to meet up with other people from the UK and other countries.  I am on Facebook too. 

I am sharing a room at the Sheraton with a lovely lady from Oklahoma whom I have made friends with on Facebook and fan groups.

Anyone out there from UK too please, I live in Essex

Thanks

Janet

Hey Janet and everyone out there I'm from the UK as well, Wales actually and I am travelling on my own. Gonna be heading for gatwick on the 6th and flying  out on the 7th then flying home on the 13th. I am interested to meet and chat to others. I'm quite a shy person so would be great to talk to others. I'm on Facebook if anyone else would like to add me, love to get to know everyone.

Hi, I'm Sandie. I will be coming from south of Seattle. I love to fly so, although it takes longer to drive to the airport than fly to Vancouver, I will be flying in. Because of RDA I attended my first con, Emerald City Comicon 2014. Even though Stargate is special to my heart I am into all kinds of scifi-fantasy. This will be my first Gatecon and visiting Vancouver is on my bucket list. I know I will have an immense amount of fun ;D

RDA at ECCC 2014 was just the best. I literally screamed and cried when I found out he was attending because I never thought I'd get to meet him. But I did, in my O'Neill cosplay, which he loved. He was so nice and thoughtful and I am so happy to get to meet him again! I'm in Shoreline and driving up since I have an enhanced ID but not a passport, even though I'd totally fly if I did as I love flying too :)

Couple of weeks ago...

Hi, Everybody!   I am flying in from Billings, MT.  I have never been to a Gatecon event before and am sooo excited!  I did go to Vancouver for MTM back in 2010 --- then Calgary Comic Con (2013), Emerald City Comic Con (2014), and Starfest (Denver-2015).  Obviously, I LOVE going to these events, but it's always been about Stargate and RDA for me, so can't wait !

Hi everyone. I'm Ron and I'll be flying in from Orlando. I've been to a ton of cons, but this will be my first Gatecon and I'm super excited as SG-1 and Atlantis are my favorite shows of all time. This will also be my first trip to Vancouver, but because of work it will be relatively short. I look forward to seeing some of the city and meeting all of you as well as our Stargate heroes. See you in 6 weeks!

  Only 6 weeks to go. I am on my school holiday now and only have 3 days at school in September before going coming to see you all.
I have been doing chores and cutting my granddads grass to earn some extra money to buy some autographs and pictures. I hope to pay for the pictures before coming to Gatecon. It looks like American and Canadian money will be needed for the autographs.
Going now to cut more grass. Excited about the trip.
William.

Hello all,
My travel buddy can no longer go to Gatecon, so I am coming alone. Are there other solo travelers out there (esp. women) who would like to hook up for meals, and just general companionship during the convention? I am a retired band director, also heavy Stargate Fan, who has attended lots of cons, but this is my first Gatecon. I have tickets to all the events, and I might want to fit in some sightseeing also. I arrive on Wednesday midday, leaving Tuesday afternoon. Hoping to meet some new friends...

Yep solo traveller here. Making my way to gatwick tomorrow and flying out Wednesday morning. Looking forward to it, my first Gatecon, but been to many other cons. So be nice to meet everyone.  8)

Hello all!

My name is Didier (pronounce 'Dee-Dee-Hey'  ;) ), I'm from Montreal, Quebec, 32, single (what?   :P ;D), part-time geek, full-time Stargate fan, and this will be my first GateCon (but not my first convention)! Needless to say I'm looking forward to this event, but also to meet fellow Gaters and to see the beautiful British-Columbia for the very first time!

Also, thank you in advance for being patient with me; I might ask you to repeat stuff you said since I'm French-Canadian (my English will probably be a bit 'rusty' here and there...but I should be able to catch up quickly :P) 

I'll be there from the 7th (evening) through the 13th and I'll be attending all the events of the Con.

Can't wait to the event!

See y'all there very soon!

D.

I'm taking it nice and easy today, saving all my energy for when it all starts! I'll be making the trek to Richmond tomorrow by bus from Cloverdale. It's a marathon given the relatively short distance as transit outside of Vancouver itself is not as good once you're outside the skytrain network. I've decided not to drive as it's too tiring to drive home after a long day of con fun so I'll be be staying at a hotel close by. It will be a nice 'staycation' for me.  :D

Good evening all.. made it to the Hilton next to Sheraton. Sadly miss all of Thursday's activities and still have to pickup/checkin tomorrow before Opening lol. Think I'm the last one to make it in?

See ya all folks tomorrow, at least the flight from LA was uneventful with some slight rollercoaster turbulence.
