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

And I can attest to Highlander II's red hair.  Man, you better hope you're not wearing the pink.   lol    As for loud, at least I admit it. :D

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

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!!

Slacker!

I have never denied that I am a slacker!  However, if you find a TARDIS, hook me up and I'll go back and go to those cons I missed!

Hi all! I'm Anne. Never been to a Gatecon, but have always wanted to. I did go to MTM, though. Super excited!

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)!
