I’m Becky, and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I have never been to Gatecon before, though I’ve often looked into it and cursed my poor budgeting skills :(, but I will be there next year!! I have also never been to Canada, so I am looking forward to that adventure.
My normal convention-buddy can’t come along to Gatecon, so I don’t know anyone that will be there next year. I do have some social anxiety issues, so I’m pretty keen to meet some people on the forum before turning up to a convention full of strangers. I do love to talk (and sometimes you cant get me to shut up), but not so much in big group conversations, so I’ll often just sit back and listen.

G'day Beckney, I'm from Perth. Hang your arm out, I will pick you up as I fly over! 😆 Really, though there will be dinners, outings and others things set up by people. Keep an eye open for them. I am going to be organising one of them, and you will be welcome. ☺

Hey Becky ! Welcome ! Welcome!
Well for starters, you won't be alone coming from Australia, I know a couple of friends who are flying from Oz to come to Vancouver ! One of them is from Melbourne, although I can't say for sure that's where she'll be flying from or when. I can't try and find out for you, if that will ease your worries? Who knows, you might be on the same flight and not even know it then (although I do believe she's planning on staying a bit before/after the con... again, i can try and find out =D ) :)
If you have any question or just wanna chat outside of this forum, drop me a message here and we can arrange something. Facebook, twitter, skype, whatever will help make you feel comfortable. Last year was my first gatecon event and honestly it worked like a charm, everyone was just so amazingly nice. I have no doubt you will have a blast.

If you are looking for someone to crash with, in order to save on room cost etc., do have a look at the Room Sharing thread, see if you are looking for a roomie or what. In any case, happy to see you be a part of the adventure and I look forward to meeting you / chatting with you !  ;D ;D

Watch out for this one Beckney, she can talk the hind leg off a donkey! 😆😆😆😆

Hi everyone, Sharon here from UK, near Liverpool.

Gate con: first was Gatecon Uk in Cheltenham back in 2006 (although no my fiirst con, that was in 2002).
Second Gatecon was 2008 Sheraton Wall centre, then 2010 and 2016. I'm generally found printing photos  at the con.

Through star gate I feel in love with Vancouver, BC and Canada.

See you all at Gatecon 2018.

Coffee anyone?

Count me in! You can have the coffee! Tea for me. There is a nice Irish pub down the road as well for meals etc. 😉

Ah yes will be great to head down there en masse again and watch the staff faces drop when they realise "they're back in town"

Invasion 2018 seems quite appropriate somehow.

Revenge? Twisted pleasure to see someone else (beside you) run around like mad to do 5 things at any given time and try and keep up ? Your views on poetic justice? They did no wrong :P :P :P (but true, that pub IS fun. I felt a bit cramped last time, but I had an amazing night )
Will definitely go again, personally.

So Hello ALL! 8)

Names Nikki, I'm 27 and have loved Stargate for as long as I knew it was around.... I live in Florida in the USA and it is hot, hot, hot....

This will be my first convention ever and my first Stargate event I go to, *Gasp* I know that rock I lived under finally got picked up and moved lol... I love to draw, write, and enjoy traveling....

Ummm lets see I am a HUGE Amanda Tapping fan and cannot wait to see her :) I like Mortal Kombat and The Sims games, I do awesome Halloween costumes/makeup on myself every year, and I am super excited to visit Canada for the first time!

Also I got the Golden Ticket ;P, Also my Girlfriend and her son will be with me to see Vancouver but will be passing on the convention itself so looking to meet new friends and have a good time as well!

Message me with any cool tips, pointers, or info you think I might like... Look out for this rookie y'all!

Sorry. On phone and it doesn't seem to agree on me editing previous post.
You say you're from Florida. Dunno how safe but with that hurricane about you take care okay? And come say hi when it's passed. Don't know you but it'll be nagging the back of my mind I think, so I'd love to know you're okay. Stay safe! Xoxo

Hi Nikki,

Welcome to the group. I am coming from Australia and later on I will be organising a dinner for all that want to come and say hi. This is not an official Gatecon dinner, just some of us getting together to meet each other. You will be welcome to join. 😄
