Ok, so I am trying to organize a Dragoncon meetup for Saturday 9/1/07.
Please let me know if you plan to attend Dragoncon and would like to join other DDO'ers for a lunch, party or whatever.:D

Peace:)

My wife and I are talking about showing up on Saturday afternoon/evening, but nothing certain yet. Might make it by noonish, or a little later.

This is me, with my son in his Jango Fett costume (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnbr/234315199/), sans helmet, at Dragon*Con last year.

I am missing Gen Con due to Army Reserve Obligations. (grrrr)
However, I am planning on being at Dragon Con on Saturday!
Cannot speak for Clankenbeard (hubby IRL), but I will try to talk him coming as many of our guildies in Stormbringers hail from Georgia and Alabama!
Either way, Lessah is coming to Dragon Con... and h___'s coming with me!
:D :D :D

I looked on the Dragon Con Site, loads of Star-Trek Actors are going. ((true story, while my husband and I were still dating, we took a trip to Vegas. I made him eat at Quark's TWICE! hahaha! he still married me!))
This should be quite fun!

This is our 4th year of going. Here is one of my Costumes (http://www.stormbringerfilms.com/redshirtsontour.htm)from last year. I am the one in the gold shirt.:p
We are going all 4 days as well. Got a buddy with a room that gave me some crash space.:D

That was hilarious!!!

I am not brave enough to go in costume!
However, I have verbal confirmation that Clankenbeard will acompany his lovely wife Lessah to the Con!

Well the hubby and I aren't going to con - it's 10 days from my due date (whee!) but we both live in the area so would love to meet up with everyone. Maybe meet up for lunch on Saturday.

There are are quite few resturants within walking distance.
Maybe we should consider making reservations at one for X amount of people.
I have a few local friends that don't frequent the forums that I sure will come with tag along mates.
That would seem to put us at about 10-12 folks.:cool:

OMG! Lessah! You thought that was funny, you should see the picture that i don't put online of me as a ferengi last year.

Looks like most people won't be coming in until Saturday afternoon - maybe we should try and hook up on Sunday for lunch.

Thoughts? Opinions?

LOL Lessah! Now there will be a story to tell the grandkids - well you see, your mother decided to be born in the middle of dragoncon but luckily this girl who likes to play halflings on DDO.. Dungeons and Dragons Online dear, the video game your grandfather and I play, well she was able to deliver your mother and made her indeed the youngest gamer at the con....

I'm planning on attending myself - I've been an infrequent Dragon*Con-er - but I was definately committed to going this year - expect to be there for the whole weekend although I've never been much for costumes.

I really wouldn't mind meeting up at all - might be nice to stumble into some Ghallanders' however.

Maybe we could also arrange a meet up on saturday or saturday night at one of the bars in one of the hotels.

is dragoncon only here in atlanta or is that a nationwide thing?

Myself and my old gaming buddies will all be there. Only 2 of them play DDO, but maybe we can convert some of the rest :)

Just let me know when and where to meet.

It's been in Atlanta for as long as I can remember, not sure if it's ever been anywhere else..

Tous - I think maybe one night at one of the bars would be a good idea. For those of you who have gone often, do the hotel bars get crazy busy? I am up for Saturday or Sunday night. For those of you actually going to the Con, what would work best for you?

I have been there a few times, but to tell the truth, I don't know my way around by memory.
Parasol bar is in the Hyatt straight back from the peachtree st. entrance (parade comes down peachtree). It is pretty much standing room only. Not sure about the others. Have a feeling they are the same.

I guess we might want to locate it more central. Or maybe off the beaten path to make it easy to locate one another.

Edit: Oh, there is a life size Jabba the Hut in one of the hotels.

Sure thing, new is as welcome as old.
Which hotel are you staying in?
If you want to post your room number we can use that as a meeting place for the onsite meetup.
