S2: Dragon*Con 2013

Dragon*Con is one of the most popular multi-media, sci-fi, fantasy, comics, art and film conventions in the US. It's been running for 25 years in Atlanta, Georgia. D*C is spread across
5 hotels and runs for 4 days
(and nights!)

While Comic Con and Dragon*Con are both massive gatherings, Dragon*Con seems to be less commercial and more fan-focused.

If we pre-register for D*C after this year's Con finishes (Sep 3) we can get 4 day rego prices at 50% off! That's $60 for 4 days of awesomeness. Win! I've also read that the 5 hotels sell out fast, so we would need to start planning soon if not now :D

2 of us are officially going! We've booked tickets and accom. msg Marissa for details.

Let's go as a small group and take on Dragon*Con!

Who's in? :D

    I just got the reminder that I haven't RSVP'd for this one and that I still have time..... if I say Yes can I just pretend that I was there? :) Have fun Nigel and Marissa! Beyond jealous of you both and can't wait to live vicariously through your Facebook posts and photos. See you when you get back.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
