Who's Going to Chicago TARDIS? (Informal Check-In)

For many of us, Thanksgiving weekend is more than just a meal-oriented holiday; it's a time when we gather together to celebrate with other Doctor Who fans at Chicago TARDIS!

This isn't an "official" meetup - just sending out a notice seeing who is attending. Your organizer will be a bit busy working a charity auction (it's the first time CT is running such an event - please check out details at http://www.chicagotardis.com/?page_id=261). But this year is providing to have quite an eclectic guest list.

So eclectic, in fact, that if you're thinking about registering, you might want to do so now rather than later - tickets will sell out really fast. For registration information, please head to http://www.chicagotardis.com/?page_id=24

(No promises, but if enough people are coming - and if schedules and timing permits - there might be an informal get together during the convention. But please RSVP if you're planning to attend; at the very least, several of us can find other meetup members to explore the convention with!)

Thanks, and hope to see you there!

      We should have a meetup spot...perhaps the back of the main room, north side (same side as the TARDIS) right after opening ceremonies. I'll be wearing a 1st Doctor shirt...and Miskatonic hoodie

      1 · November 28, 2013

    • Keith W.

      Hey guys...I'm sorry because of the switch in programming, I'm being pullef out of the opening ceremonies early for my birthday dinner...please say hi to me if you see me around tonight or tomorrow/Sunday. Tomorrow i'll be dressed as Peter Davison from "The Fiveish Doctors".

      November 29, 2013

    I can take a bus there on Friday but would probably need a ride home on Friday night. Is anyone going back to Chicago Friday night?

    November 29, 2013

  • JB A.

    I will be there all three days, of course. I'm participating in two panels on Saturday: the Podcast panel at 2pm and the "Moffat's Girls" panel at 4pm (both in Programming 2), so come by, say hi, and join in the discussion. I will also be recording bits for the podcast, so stop me if you like to become part of the podcast. I'll most likely be wearing my grey cap and Tom Baker scarf this weekend.

    1 · November 28, 2013

  • Wesley B.

    Packing. Will be there this evening and through Monday. Hit me up of you see me. I should be wearing my Indiana Jones hat over my long hair, and one or two cameras strapped on me. If you are in the ballroom, I will be in seat 9 up front.

    Couldn't buy tickets ahead of time for convention. My husband and I are only able to come on Sunday this time, got to buy tix at door I guess. Looking forward to it.

  • Wesley B.

    Okay, found someone to take my 3-day Reserved passes. Now they need to sell their regular 3-day passes at face value, $170. If we need to sweeten the pot, this will include a room reservation at the Westin. The room reservation is currently for Thursday night through Monday morning.

    November 19, 2013

    Thought I'd be busy, but now am considering joining some friends if I can get any kind of ticket.

    November 18, 2013

    • Keith W.

      Saturday only is sold out...but there are still Friday, Sunday, and three-day passes available at the door.

      November 18, 2013

    • Helene

      See Wesley's post above. He may have two reserved three day tickets.

      November 19, 2013

  • Wesley B.

    My son and I are going (we have tickets), however, my friends cannot. I may have two (2) 3-day reserved tickets with Sunday brunch available. Waiting on confirmation that they have my son registered before I sell them.

    I also need a convention buddy. Lol

  • Gordon D.

    Just a heads-up; since I'll be working the convention at the Auction table, I'm not sure I'll have the flexibility to organize a formal event. However, you're more than welcome to use this as a "hey, let's hang out at ***" during the conference" forum.

    I will be there Saturday with 3 other Whovians. Let me know where everyone is meeting up.

    I'll be working the Auction table outside of the dealer's room - please come up and say "hi" (and please - be nice to the volunteers at Chicago TARDIS. Buy them cookies :))!
