Wizard World Con in Portland


THE Captain James Tiberius Kirk will be at Wizard World 2014.  Now we are all scifi geeks anyway, so I would be remiss not to mention there will be stars from Star Wars, and other scifi shows there as well. 

Here is a link to the website.

    Feedback from Wizard World was that we are a GREAT group and they want us to come back next year!

    Jenna said that a couple parents went out of their way to let WW know how happy they were for getting their little ones in the Captain's chair for pictures. According to Angela, the floor monitors said we were one of the best fan groups on the floor. High praise indeed. Since my back wouldn't let me walk the floor much, I loved taking pictures of the cosplay as they came by the table. Shout out to new people Jason and Nikki for helping out at the table. I hope you both join us at another event soon.

      Maybe you could see when you are at Seattle if you could get a table for our group at that con for next year.

      Joey, I love that idea! I'd be glad to volunteer at the table both days if I could get a ride up there and a space on the floor to put a sleeping bag on to sleep in.

    This was such a fun weekend. It was so nice to meet so many trek fans and get to talk to them a little bit, which is a lot harder to do when you are just walking the floor. Thanks Ilana, for arranging this!

    THREE CHEERS FOR ILANA; organizing our STFNW presence at Portland ComicCon, arranging cheaper Exhibitor passes for those who volunteered to staff the booth, and pulled together and printed some basic info on STFNW/Meetup for interested people. Not to mention that WAAAAAY COOL Captain's Chair. People, expecially kids, loved THAT!
    Three Cheers! HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY!! HIP HIP HOORAY!!

    Sorry everybody! I posted incorrect closing hours! The correct closing hours are: ** Friday - 8 p.m. **
    ** Saturday - 7 p.m. ** ** Sunday - 5 p.m. **

    Damn I thought this was going to be later in the day. I RSVP'd a long time ago but I have Footall Practice at 9am... I am not done until 12 and its all the way out in hillsboro. should I un-rsvp?

    • Theodore L.

      Okay I didn't know this was a long term event. haven't been to many cons to get the Scheduling code down yet.

      January 24, 2014

    • Lisa D.

      Hey Theodore - It can be confusing at first, yup, but the events and hours that this con is open is all spelled out pretty well in the link Ilana provided above. Although Friday is only a half day, it's open 'til 7 p.m. all 3 days.

      January 24, 2014

  • Lisa D.

    Hootenanny- Check out the link Ilana provided above. All the info. about the con is there. It's not strictly a Star Trek con. And this bunch, STFNW, will have a table staffed throughout the 2.5 days. Stop by and say "LLAP!". Always good to meet Trekkies! :-) Are you selling Trek items at the con - or here on this Meetup? Hope to see you this weekend!

    January 24, 2014

    • Lisa D.

      Christopher! My Favorite FlyBoy! I'm staffing our table twice: Saturday 2-4 and Sunday 4(or 5)

      January 24, 2014

    • Lisa D.

      (or 5 pm) til 7 pm closing. Is it you cat? Such a sweetie! ;-)

    We could get together at the Meetup table and go get some lunch together? Saturday would be better than Sunday for me. What time works? We don't want to pick Noon because it will be crazier than drunken Klingons at that time!

    January 24, 2014

  • Ilana L.

    This con runs 2.5 days. I have made separate sign ups for the different days.

    Let's get together for Lunch on Saturday.

    Good News! I have been given the weekend off work, so I am going to be able to attend the whole convention! I am quite excited now.

    Hey Nawder - Not a chance of getting anywhere near him. Not when Shatner could get $469.00 from you instead. Besides, he really is a Galaxy-Class JERK and, as Ilana reminded me, he only wants to talk about whatever silly-assed project he's doing right now, not Star Trek.
    I "met" him once in Vegas for a photo op ($85.00 alone for the privilege) and he's kinda slimy, had to go wash my hands after. You're not missing a thing.

    Colin Kaepernick looks like a Vulcan.

  • Nawder J.

    Ive never been to one of these. If someone gets a regular 1 day pass, can they still meet William Shatner at some point?

    January 12, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      Ballroom 203 has Summer GLau at 12 noon, Adam West and Burt Ward at 1pm and the Shatner at 2pm...that is one hellluva triple bill.

    • Nawder J.

      Thanks!

      January 12, 2014

  • Joey G.

    Ilana, do you still have any discount tickets left?

    January 6, 2014

    • Ilana L.

      I am working on it. Email me at [masked]

      January 6, 2014

  • Lisa D.

    Whoa - the William Shatner VIP Tix says "(with Leonard Nimoy)"!!!!
    Ilana, I have a bunch of questions - can you please phone me some time? I'll email you my phone #. Thank you AND
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL THE FINE TREKKIES!

    1 · December 24, 2013

    • Daniel D.

      FYI - Nimoy is not actually present for this, you can get Shatner to sign a photo that has a pre-signed Nimoy on it as well, since he does not do the cons anymore, this is the only way to get them both on the same photo.
