As I live in Vancouver, I was curious; how many people are coming in from out of town to attend the convention in April?

(Don't know what I'm talking about? Go here for more info on "The Official STARGATE SG-1 & ATLANTIS CONVENTION in VANCOUVER".)

There are several Vancouver area Science Fiction groups as well as a Stargate Meetup group here, and I was thinking of trying to organize a meetup/mixer type of thing *IF* people might be interested.

While I generally avoid Creation Entertainment events like a plague after having worked a number of them in the early 1990s (because they are a huge, money sucking, corporate machine, driven by greed and profit, bent on squeezing every last penny possible from the fannish masses from every possible genre, and have no true understanding of fandom or fen) if a Creation Con means there will be a gathering of like minded fen in my hometown, then by God, I plan to take advantage of it.

While I plan to paint the town red with my very dear friend n7cdrsheppard when she gets here (and oh, we got into mischief last time she was in town, I'm soooo looking forward to seeing her), I would not be adverse to seeing some other Stargate fen.

So. Lemme know!

I just read a comment in BCSFAzine No. 430, by Lloyd Penny:

"If this is coming from Creation Conventions, please inform the Provincial Taxation offices. Creation no longer does business in Ontario because they were caught not paying taxes on the salaries they were paying their actor guests. Call the taxation offices anyway, and Creation will probably beat a hasty retreat back to California."...

Gee, Creation doing skeevy business practices? I would never have guessed! NOT! :-p

Nothing really new there... However, not paying the proper taxes is definitely a stupid twist for them.

Shaddyr, I don't have a passport yet so, I don't know if I could make it or not, besides the outrageous amount on airfare I would have to spend... damn American Air for saying that we can't be a hub anymore and giving us crappy rates! :(

Get your tail up here, if you can. It wouldn't be the same without you.

Hey, I heard you are staying in the Flan's old room. Are you going to bring your Sheppard action figure and pose him all over the place? What seat are you in at the con?

That's excellent! We'll be doing something for sure, we just haven't decided exactly what yet.

I'll make sure I keep you in the loop!

hi! my name's jen and I live here in Vancouver, too! (Burnaby, to be specific).

I'd love to meet up with you and any other LJers!

In fact, since you're from BC, I suppose you can just give me a shout if you want to plan something more concrete.

My mobile is 604.817.0536, so we can plan something, then post about it at stargate as well as at the sg1_debrief and bring some folks together!
