We’re excited to round off our guest list for this year’s event with Annette Badland! Annette played Margaret Blaine (aka Margaret Slitheen) in the 9th Doctor stories “Aliens of London,” “World War Three,” and “Boom Town.” She’s also know for her appearances in such diverse shows as All Creatures Great and Small, Wizards vs. Aliens, Eastenders, and Cutting It.
Also joining us will be Lars Pearson, Mad Norwegian Press publisher, and L.M. Myles, editor of Chicks Unravel Time and the just-announced Companion Piece. We’re delighted they both can join us again.
We have sent a test message via Eventbrite to ensure we can reach you! We want to assure you will get the pre-sale autograph/photo codes! If you don’t see it in your in-box, check your spam/junk box. Let us know asap if you didn’t get it!
Yep, that time of year again. We’re looking for people to populate these panels. No experience necessary– just an enthusiasm for the topic. Deadline for applying is coming up quickly: Sunday, November 2 at 11:59 p.m.
Food, glorious food! Hot sausage and mustard….
(Sorry. We forgot that we’re not an Oliver! Convention for a moment.)
Sunday morning brunch… your chance to have a delightful buffet-style meal while getting to chat amiably with your fellow attendees and many of the convention guests. A separate-admission event (that requires convention membership to attend), the brunch runs from 10 a.m. – noon Sunday in the Lilac Room. Tickets are still available, but are going fast—just $55. Don’t miss out!
Year of first appearance: 2000
We understand that not all our convention members are able to see or hear well, or move about (including standing) with ease. We offer help in the form of special seating areas in Main Programming and the ability to jump most of the queue for autographs and photographs. Stop by our Accessibility Services booth (just past Main Programming, before you turn the corner for Registration) to sign up for these help-meets (and to get the Super Secret Designation Thing to assure you can receive this help w/o inadvertent hassles from well-meaning staff). Hours will be the same as for Registration, and will be posted nearer the convention.
Year of first appearance: 2000 (probably—records are sketchy)
