Overview of the planned activities
« on: August 26, 2015, 06:42:35 AM »
The Homecoming has activities stretching across 5 days so please bear that in mind when organising your trip. The activities on the first and fifth days are optional ones, so if you can only make the main part of the weekend you will still have plenty to see and do.

The event itinerary will be released once our full guest line-up has been finalised and their individual appearance times are known, but these are the extra activities planned for your enjoyment so far. Check out the dedicated thread for each :

  • Convention Cocktail Competition
  • Art Competition
  • Absolutely Everybody Convention Video
  • Writing Competition
  • Stargate Costume Competition
  • Vangroovy Costume Competition
  • Vangroovy Harbour Cruise
  • The Homecoming Vangroovy Welcome Party
  • The Vangroovy Banquet
  • The Sea Shepherd Charity Auction
  • The Vancouver Filming Location Tour


PC - any activity marked PC means that it takes place Pre-Convention
OE - any activity marked OE is an Optional Extra and involves the purchase of a ticket add-on
FE - any activity marked FE means Free Entry and is included in your main convention ticket

Here is the current itinerary.
Please note this is for reference only and is subject to change without notice.

Please be aware at certain points during the event you may need to choose between a panel and a photo op. The panels are repeated morning and afternoon to give everyone the chance to see and do both activities.

Anyone not listed as taking part in on-stage panels is due to be doing their photo ops that day unless otherwise indicated.

Some guests are unable to join us on the Friday. They will be doing their photo ops on Saturday and stage panel on Sunday morning.

The Sunday morning RDA auto session is in addition to the afternoon session, so if you do not get an auto in the morning, or don't wish to miss the panels, don't panic!

Still trying to think of other bits we can slot in too. Really wanting it to be action packed and non-stop.

But a fair mix of free to do and those that will require an additional purchase like the tours etc.

The event itinerary will be released once our full guest line-up has been finalised and their individual appearance times are known, but these are the extra activities planned for your enjoyment so far. Check out the dedicated thread for each :

  • Convention Magazine Cover Competition
  • Glyph Hunt
  • Convention Cocktail Competition
  • Art Competition
  • Absolutely Everybody Convention Video
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Fanfic Competition
  • Stargate Costume Competition
  • Vangroovy Costume Competition
  • Vangroovy Harbour Cruise
  • The Homecoming Vangroovy Welcome Party
  • The Vangroovy Banquet
  • The Sea Shepherd Charity Auction
  • The Vangroovy Cabaret
  • The Vancouver Filming Location Tour


PC - any activity marked PC means that it takes place Pre-Convention
OE - any activity marked OE is an Optional Extra and involves the purchase of a ticket add-on

This is the con I've been waiting for!!!  Hold on, I need to breathe for a second.....

Ok, good.  I've only been a Stargate fan for 6 years, and I say new because I missed all the good stuff as the show was airing.  This gives me a chance to be a part of it for real!  I'm looking forward to it and all those things look like a fantastic time!
