Calgary Comicon!

Are you guys going to the calgary comicon this year? I sure am! lets do it together!

It runs from the 27-29th April, we will be 'coning all day, and boardgaming all night, stopping only for beer, blues and BBQ at our unofficial Calgary hangout, Big T's (or brunch at the casino, or bedtime, I need my sleep).

If you're driving and have room for others, send me a message and I'll set you up with folks to carpool with. If you want to split the cost of a hotel room, let me know and I'll try to set you up with a roomie. Other questions or concerns? send me a message and I'll get back to you!

you have to buy your own ticket ( weekend passes are best), and as soon as I've done some research, will tell you where I've booked a hotel room so if you want to book one nearby you can.

    This was my 2nd Sci Fi con ever (unless you count Animethon) and it was awesome. The lines and crowds were a lot more than I expected - I expect that is a common comment.

    Laura: I'd like to join the bbq-eating, and possibly the brunch-eating. I'll ask the people I'm riding with for details. If they can't fill me in, I'll text you at some point.

    Because of the nature of the con (everyone will be checking out different panels, lining up for photos, gaming, etc) having everyone meetup at the same time would be tough during the day. My phone number is[masked], if anyone wants to find me, send me a text or call!
    Some of us will be meeting up at Big T's for bbq on Friday night, and at the casino for brunch on saturday, so if you'd like to join us for those, let me know.

    I plan to be there for only the Saturday so I may run into some of you.

  • Tamara

    Thanks peoples, I have secured a ride!

    April 24, 2012

  • Brian

    I have room for 2 more.

    April 23, 2012

  • Francis S.

    I might go down the Sat, or Friday coming back Sat evening if anybody wants a seat. Email me.

    April 21, 2012

  • Tamara

    If anyone still has room, I would be ever so grateful for a ride!

    I need A place to stay.

    Anyone else interested in staying at the HI hostel? It's got good pretty good reviews, it includes breakfast, it's fifteen minutes walk from the con, and it's super cheap.

    If there were six of us who wanted to stay there, I think we might be able to book an entire dorm room, though I'd have to phone and ask to be sure.

    I'm staying at the Marriott.

    Sorry can't take a bus as far as Calgary.

    March 2, 2012

  • Beth S.

    I'm going to be going with some friends of mine, and staying with them too to cut down on costs, so this complicates matters for me. But hopefully I can see you guys around there at one of the events.

    Meeting up on Saturday sounds like a plan! I was thinking, and this is only tentative and can be changed, that we could have dinner Friday and Saturday at Big T's, followed by boardgames, and lunch/brunch Saturday and Sunday at the casino buffet (since it's the nearest place to eat, and reasonably priced). Obviously not everyone will be able to meet up for all these events, but having some sort of schedule would at least give folks the option to meet. Does that make sense? what do folks think?

  • Julie

    I already bought a day pass and am planning to go on the 28'th. Maybe I could meet up with you there on the Saturday?

    February 29, 2012

  • Ross J.

    I have two seats left in my vehicle for anyone wanting to catch a ride to Calgary with me. Rough plan thus far is to head down Friday, leaving e-town somewhere around noon.

    February 28, 2012

  • Beth S.

    P.S. Are we doing some planning for the Expo soon? I bought a 3-day pass, assuming that we were all going together for all 3 days.

    February 3, 2012

  • Beth S.

    HO BOY. If anyone still hasn't got their ticket yet, get them NOW before they sell out. The entire cast of Next Gen is going, that's why!

    There will be a separate ticketed event to see them all live, too. That doesn't go on sale until Feb. 18, 10:00 AM.

    I've made a reservation in the Comfort Inn and Suites (Right by Big T's) and it has a living room, so we can all play board games there.

  • Laura

    the weekend pass is $40, with a $3.39 fee. Here's where you'd get them: http://www.calgaryexpo.com/calgary-expo/

    Anyone know how much it'll cost to get in?

    January 8, 2012

  • Brian

    I can ask at work about using a bus.

    January 8, 2012

  • Ross J.

    Consider it reserved.

    January 8, 2012

  • Ross J.

    Indeed I am. My vehicle can take three passengers comfortably or six uncomfortably. I believe Karl is also offering.

    January 8, 2012

  • Ross J.

    I will be there, and my taxi is available for all.

    boardgame location will depend on the haps at the time. If we're mostly in one hotel, as Beth suggests (I'l look at prices, see if we can get a deal) it will be there. If we're all over then we can meetup at a coffee shop or pub and play there. We should have a better plan closer to the date.

    January 5, 2012

  • UncleKarl

    @Laura, Where are the board games being held?

    January 5, 2012

  • Beth S.

    And Karl, I would need a ride too, if I'm able to come.

    Also, perhaps we should book rooms together, esp. if we're going in a group? It would be cheaper, no?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
