Membership Update

October 25, 2013 in Memberships by JennAK

We have good news and bad news about obtaining memberships at the door for this year’s Chicago TARDIS.

First, the good news: the current pricing ($85/weekend, $40 Fri or Sun, $50 Sat) has been extended through November 15th. You now have an extra two weeks in which to purchase your memberships before the at-door pricing kicks in.

Now, the bad news– and it’s in two parts.

Part one: online ticket sales will cease at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 15th. After that time, you will have to purchase your membership at the door, no exceptions.

Part two: We are sold out of Saturday-only memberships. No Saturday-only memberships will be available at the door. If you want to attend on just Saturday, and have yet to buy a membership,  you have to buy a 3-day membership. In addition, we anticipate selling out our 3-day memberships on Friday morning of the convention, if not before, so if you want to make sure you actually get in for the full weekend, buy your membership in advance. 

We still have a quantity of 3-day memberships, but we expect the three-day tickets to start moving faster once Saturday-only is sold out. Don’t be left out! Get your membership now!

Preliminary Guest Schedule Up!

October 1, 2013 in Guests, Programming by JennAK

Wondering who would be on the Main Programming stage on which day? How about photographs and autographs? When are the actors posing and signing? Wonder no longer! The preliminary schedule has now materialized on our website.

(Still subject to revision, of course– plus, this schedule doesn’t include all the fabulous panel discussions and special events happening throughout the weekend.)

Always Seeing Patterns….

July 9, 2013 in Guests by JennAK

This year, Chicago TARDIS presents not just one Doctor… not just two Doctors… but THREE Doctors! Paul McGann will be joining Colin Baker and Peter Davison (along with all our other guests) on Thanksgiving weekend. Chicago hasn’t had three Doctors at the same convention since 1985, so this year’s Chicago TARDIS will be something magical indeed.
