DragonCon?  
So I had a few people at Gateworld telling me the other day that I should go to this year's DragonCon in Atlanta. I think it takes place during the last weekend in August. Michael and Lexa are supposed to be there, as well as Chris Judge. Someone told me that Dragon Con is not like Creation and I'd have better chance of getting closer to Michael...

*sigh* What I would give to attend this con. I was so disappointed that he cancelled out on the NJ con and I honestly have no idea if he'll be attending it this year too. Also supposed to appear at DragonCon are the TAPS guys (from Ghost Hunters). I've always wanted to meet them too so it'd be really cool. I'd probably be able to swing it monetarily (is that a word? lol), but the problem is that I hate traveling alone, especially over such far distances - let alone going to a con by myself. My friend Lori who I went with to the NJ con wants to go back there this year, but again I don't know for sure if MS will even be attending.

The only thing I MAY be able to do.... I found one of my old junior high school friends on myspace last year. She'd mentioned back then that she usually goes to DragonCon and if I went I'd "be in Stargate heaven." I COULD try emailing her and seeing if she's going, but if I remember she said she was getting married this summer, so it's a longshot.

*sigh* How I wish I could do this. I really don't like the way Creation does things and I'm betting DragonCon would be a lot better! Plus there are so many guests I'd like to meet there... so close and yet so far. If only this thing took place in NY!!

I've also been toying with the idea of going to Dragon*con.

I think it would be awesome to go! But the person that I would take with me doesn't want to go, and I don't want to go myself... hhhmmmm...

Dragon*Con... There are going to be a few people from Battlestar Galactica are going to be there...

I've also heard that this is a better con than the one Creation does... Last year, at the BSG con, I heard some really shitty things about the Creation cons.. and Aaron Douglas, Chief on BSG, said that the best cons to go to are ones in the UK.... But seeing as I doubt I'll be going to the UK anytime soon, I think Dragon*Con would be the next best thing...

I've said my peace...

Yeah that's my problem too.... unless my jr. high friend is going but I'm not so sure she is. Guess it won't hurt to ask her (though haven't spoken to her in ages)...

Yeah, Creation can be pretty shitty. I heard something about them not allowing people who do fan-run cons to have them in or near cities where Creation has them. Guess they're worried that the fan-run cons will grab their celebs from them or something. *rolls eyes* There's a fan-run con called I-CON not far from where I live, but they don't have anyone good attending this year... mostly I think cause it's the same weekend as the Creation con in Vancouver. :p

I'm all up for going if I can find someone to go with....

That is true.. Creation has a thing about Fan-run cons... I believe that is why Gatecon is no longer... They are a monopoly when is comes to cons in the States and Canada...

But.. Creation was really nice last year at the BSG con and bought a bunch of fans a shot each of whiskey, really expensive whiskey. Through Aaron of course... ;) They don't know that of course...

Same here... hoping my jr. high friend will go, but I haven't talked to her in so long... it may conflict with her wedding to. Guess I'll see though...

That's cool that they were nice at the BSG con though :)

I was thinking about going to Dragon Con, but the thing is, I've already seen most of the guests already. If they add Torri, I would definitely go.

Are you going to I-CON at StonyBrook this month?

I would love them to add Torri. I guess one reason I really want to go is that I've never seen any Stargate people at cons other than Creation (well except for Carmen at I-CON last year). I'm going to try asking Laura (my friend from jr. high) but I doubt she's going anyway.

I'm not planning on going to I-CON this year. Jamie Bamber is the only person I've really heard of who's going to be there, lol. It stinks that they have to have it the same weekend as the Creation con in Vancouver!
