Marking my fifth year in a row, I will be attending DragonCon this year.  

Website is HERE.  They always have some great guests show up and I really enjoyed listening one year to Harlan Ellison rip people to shreds, Anne McCaffrey, the Firefly gals and guys.  If you were there when Nathan Fillion was given the finger by the entire room, you would never forget it.  Did I forget to mention the Mahito Bar at the Hyatt Regency where you can watch a Klingon stand by a Star Wars Officer by a SuperHero all having drinks and actually be somewhat sober until you stand up.  People watching is the best sport and keeping yourself from being caught having a Droid Card by the 501st Storm Trooper.  Who also can forget Buddy Jesus who shows up almost every year.  I hope Nathan Fillion can make it this year and I see Jamie Bamber will be there.  Lexa Doig and Michael Shanks are going to be there and Claudia Christian.  

Always a fun time but you need to get your rooms now.  They have expanded from two hotels to three hotels now and I know the Marriott is already sold out.  I have to admit it is a lot of fun even if my Mahito hangover wasn't.  Hope to see some of you there.

We booked a room in January at the Marriott and I still feel like we just squeezed in!  This is only my second year, but I plan to be much better organized this time around- I missed so much last year.

James Marsters has been added. I will be there.  :)
And since this will be my 3rd year,I think I'll do costuming this time....unless it's as bleedin' hot as it was in '03.  :blink:

you forgot Ron Glass and Mark Sheppard from Firefly!  Mark is also part of the BSG group including Jamie and Katee.  Not to mention a bunch of my favorite authors.

I'll be there again, in the company of many Sorbo fans who don't post here.  I'll be taking full advantage of all the panels and costume-watching while a lot of them hang out in the autograph area for most of the con... to each their own!  Looking forward to many of the guests (and was before he finally committed - some potential filming scheduling conflicts delayed that).   D*C is always a blast!    I'm trying the Hyatt this year as I had too many problems with Marriott internet last year (might have been the construction) plus it'll be easier to drag camera stuff to and from the room!  Anything I should know about the Hyatt??  Funny how every "joe's motel" has free high speed internet but the expensive hotels charge for it....

It's always bleedin' hot!!!  From the crush of bodies inside and the weather inside!  Might bring some Drom stuff again but forget the full costuming - jacket, maybe!  I was a lot more comfortable in shorts and sandals last year.

Nother note to say that GMW's short film 'Fracture', starring among others Laura Bertram and Brandy Ledford will be screened at the Dragoncon film festival - its a late entry so won't be in the booklet but do try and look out for any notices about it!
