The Atlanta Gallifreyans meeting for this Saturday is cancelled

The Atlanta Gallifreyans meeting for this upcoming Saturday, the 15th, has been cancelled, due to weather and scheduling conflicts.

Prydon Academy info, links to D*C (and cons in general) tips, & TimeGate news

Just a quick reminder for everyone who is attending Dragoncon, that if you want to march in the Saturday morning parade group of the Prydon Academy (a costuming group for Doctor Who, Torchwood, and The Sarah Jane Adventures, please join the forum over here:

The forum is free to all; you do need a login and password, and these are sent out as soon as you sign up. :)

Then find the Dragoncon forum, and post in the various threads.

Parade ribbons will be given out at the pre-parade meet-up. Don't forget that you must wear your Dragoncon badge to march in the parade.

After the parade ends, the group has a photo-shoot (location posted over at the forum). Photographers welcome, and even if you can't or don't want to march in the parade, you're welcome to show up in costume to be part of the photo-shoot. :)

There's also the Brittrack costume panel that a lot of PA members attend. The official D*C schedule isn't up at the time of my writing this post, but I have been told that it will be sometimes Saturday afternoon.

Also, many PA members go out to eat as a group on Saturday evening. :)

Much more info at the PA forum!

I've also posted some basic con tips and some specific to Dragoncon over on the dragoncon community.

The first set is here:

The second set is here:

These con tips include some costuming and sewing kit tips. :)

See everyone at the con! :)

And one more news item: Sophie Aldred is coming to TimeGate 2011! More info here:
There's a special ticket price of only $25 for a full membership, good only through the end of Dragoncon (i.e., Sept. 6th).

OT: Bad news for Baymont Hotel and Dragoncon

For those of you attending this year's Dragoncon, I've just read on the Dragoncon Yahoogroups list that the Baymont hotel has been sold and that the new owners are not honoring any reservations already made for Dragoncon this year. Good luck on finding a new hotel! Do check the hotel listings at the D*C site itself, of course.
