With all of his recent injuries is RDA physically able to handle all of the photos and autographs ?

I know during MTM, my photo session was shot sitting down. I posted on FB that I'd be willing to bring an envelope for my autograph to be sent to me later. I can't imagine how his arm will be able to hold up the entire weekend to sign everything!

A message from Paul.

My apologies for the confusion in the auction listing for the cabin photo shoot but the auction software has to be reprogrammed to allow people to come into the bidding at their selected lower price. As it is set up right now, it is seeing the high bid as the entry point. In order to do this correctly, we have to close this auction and reboot it with the correct parameters, then everyone can get it on it. My sincere apologies for this but frankly I didn't foresee that glitch when I did the programming!

Thank for your patience and understanding!

As a former programmer, I totally understand.

Thanks Paul.
I should have read this page prior to logging on, then wondering why I can't get to the right page. 😆

Jack's Cabin Auction Update!

The first attempt didn't go too well thanks to a nice little software issue so we are trying it again! The Cabin auctions will take place in the Gatecon Member's Area (where you purchased banquet tickets, merchandise and photo-ops), not in the Auctions site (where the banquet top table and Bruce auctions were).
Allan is currently setting it all up but will need around 24 hours to get it sorted. Please bear with us and we will let you know when its all ready to go live.

Exclusive photo shoot with Richard Dean Anderson - Take Two!

The auction for our Jack's Cabin Shoot begins at 8pm BST Tuesday 16th August and ends 8pm BST Sunday 21st August 2016

This very special auction will be taking place at the Gatecon Member's Area (where you bought your original tickets and add-ons) and NOT at the Gatecon or Legends Auction Pages.

If you are having issues logging into the Gatecon Member's Area, please check that you are using your Member's Area username and password, and NOT your Forum ones.  If you still have issues, click on the "Forgot Your Password" link. If this email does not arrive (possibly because someone else purchased your ticket and used their own email address for your ticket or it is entered incorrectly), contact Allan at passwords@gatecon.com stating your full name, your seat number, and the correct email address to use for your account.
 
Please Note: Allan will be unavailable between 3pm and 12am BST, and will respond to your request once the sun rises in Australia.



We have made very special arrangements to gain access to the grounds at Jack's Cabin. As an update to our previous announcement and following a site visit to the cabin, we have decided that the photo shoot will take place in front of the cabin and not on the dock due to the limitations in the dock size and the accompanying safety issues.Your photograph with Richard Dean Anderson will take place on the porch at the front of the cabin. A print from the shoot will then be made available for you to collect in time for the Sunday autograph session, should you wish to have it signed as a personal item.

Winners will be notified of the full details of who and where to meet upon receipt of payment. Your seat is not secured until payment has been received and we reserve the right to auction again any unpaid seats. As we are now getting close to the event, payment for the auction must be received within 48 hours of the auction end via Paypal. Winners will be sent a payment request.

Please note entry to the grounds of the cabin is for the winners only. Security will be in place on the day as this is private property and only those on our list of winners will be granted access. Don't forget this is an outdoor shoot so please bring suitable clothing should we have adverse weather that day. Individuals are wholly responsible for their own safety during the visit to the cabin and in the vicinity of the lake and by taking part in the auction you agree that neither Gatecon nor Legends are liable for any personal injury sustained during the excursion.

This takes the form of a single auction with the top twenty bidders winning spots on the excursion. In the unlikely event that there is a tie for the 20th spot the winner will be determined by the date stamp of their winning bid. A percentage of the winning bids will be added to the Sea Shepherd donation after the costs for the Jack's Cabin excursion have been met.

- The photo shoot will take place on Thursday 8th September immediately after the harbour cruise
- The photo shoot will take place at Jack's Cabin and should last approximately one hour
- Transport will be provided for the winners with pickups at the Sheraton and the harbour
- There will be a maximum of 20 seats available for the shoot
- You must already own a convention ticket to take part

This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have your photo taken with Richard at Jack's Cabin.
Good luck!

While I'd love to win this, the odds are pretty low, and I'm sure the auction tickets are going to go super high.
At SGCHI 2015, the auction for being a character in the final book from the apocalypse series, by Fandemonium, went for over $1000.  I'm sure this will go much higher.
You can't blame me this time. I wanted to be a character in a book even before that auction. I won't be bidding on this because we won't arrive in Vancouver in time.

It's not 'in the thousands', only the first three bids are. The twenty highest bids win the photo so if you're number 1 or number 20, you still win.

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?
Thanks!

Hi Jeanette:

1. I'm sure something can be arranged

2. We have a half hour between the cruise getting back and meeting the bus to the cabin so you will have time to get changed on board

The boat ride is the harbor cruise that is being offered on Thursday for an extra fee. The RDA extra photo shoot at the cabin is an auction. Top 20 bids win. I believe there will be one additional spot for that photo shoot that will be raffled off at a later date. To access the RDA photo shoot auction, you log into the Member’s Area of the website (this is where you purchased your admission ticket for Gatecon).

Hope this helps.

Hi Ruth - the harbour cruise is already sold out I'm afraid and to take part in the RDA cabin photo shoot auction you need to place a bid in the Member's Area. As your ticket was bought for you by someone else you may not have received any login info so I will email those to you now.
