  1. I was considering using part of my Robert Beltran cancellation voucher on a photoshoot with John Billingsley, who is a fair bit cheaper. Does anyone know what happens to the remainder of the voucher, please? It doesn't say anything about how it works on the voucher email, although it does mention a "balance", which suggests that if I use part of it, a "balance" will be left...
  2. I have an update from the shop re my LFCC Spring 2020 Clark Gregg DP: "Yes it will roll over. we will issue an updated ticket closer to the time." So, fingers crossed, that will happen and we'll get updated tickets in time. (Failing that, I'll just take my old ticket and this email and wave them at someone at the event.)
  3. Yes, I was quite comfortable with this, until I saw that only my Gold Pass and Amanda Tapping photoshoots had been carried forward to LFCC Summer 2021, but not my Clark DP. I've emailed the shop to see what the situation is. It's possible that they couldn't carry the order forward as it had Spring-specific items on it as well and it's just a case of bringing the old ticket.
  4. Can't believe I've only just spotted this. Just to add my thanks for all the hard work you've put in over the years. Your modly rulings shall be most missed. *sniff*
  5. Agreed. Much as I'd love to see some of the guests, I can't see it working with social distancing in place. It'll be a shame if I can't go, as I've missed only one "main" LFCC since 2004. Will wait and see how things progress over the next few months, but suspect a voucher in my future (at least I can spend it on LFCC in 2021, so thanks to SM for that idea)...
  6. I've had that image too. I did go to LFCC Spring, but it was a stressful experience wondering whether I'd put myself at risk, and that was before this wretched virus really took off. Wondering how to cope with full-on social distancing at LFCC (especially with reduced space) is not a comforting thought. (Can you imagine how the entry and photoshoot/auto queues would look?) I understand SM not wanting to cancel prematurely, but I'd rather it be cancelled than go ahead and me having to miss it for safety's sake. This thing is not going away any time soon. Oh, well. We'll just have to wait and see. So depressing, though.
  7. She was adorable. I was queuing nearby and she was standing in front of her desk so she could hug everyone hello and goodbye (some I'm pretty sure got hugs in between the encounter as well). So happy and enthusiastic, bless her. I hope she got to sit down at some point and wasn't too tired after that weekend.
  8. Yes, that's what normally happens. I would never expect to be escorted right to the front, but the crew has hitherto taken me as close to the booth entrance as possible, behind any Golds/DPs already there. I didn't recognize the crew member, so agree with your guess. I was more upset by the entrance issue as I checked with a red shirt to be sure and she sent me to the back. Grr. Will get over it in a day or two, I'm sure, but I'm still in the angry processing stage. At least the rest of the crew were delightful as usual.
  9. I didn't get anything. Was given my wristband and waved in. I presumed it was because it was a smaller con (I've never done LFCC Spring before), but guess not if other people got stuff. Definitely wasn't worth the GP at this event. One of the main reasons I have it is to get in early in case I need to get VQTs or DPs before a photoshoot. Today I arrived at 9am and was made to join the back of the access queue because there was a "special desk" for Golds, so didn't get in until 9:30am. Didn't feel too "special" watching all those standard entry people going in before me. Absolutely livid about that. And normally in photoshoot queues I'm allowed to slot in behind the last Gold holder if Batch 1 or higher has been called but not for my final shoot - was made to go to the back of the queue instead. Technically going to the back of the queue is true to the description posted above, so I guess I can't complain, but I've never had to do that before (and the crewmember concerned acted like I'd committed a mortal sin by turning up just after he'd called Batch 1). Talk about starting and finishing the day on a downer! Usually I end these events on such a high, but not this time. So glad I'm not going back tomorrow. Hoping it's a blip and things are better at LFCC in the summer.
  10. According to the email I received from SM: Tickets already purchased will be valid for the Summer event. However, if you cannot make the Summer event then please email shop@showmastersevents.com to request a refund. (Very happy with this!)
  11. Awww, I'm sorry for those people who are going to miss him, but this is actually SO much easier for me. No more having to get up at 4:30am in the cold and dark in order to be there in time to scramble for his DP prior to a 9:30am shoot! I can sort my DPs out on the Friday morning/afternoon of LFCC instead. Looking forward to seeing Clark then.
  12. Augh! Ah, well, never mind. One day I hope to meet her!
  13. Well done on getting Roxann Dawson - I'd definitely have wanted to meet her.
  14. Hi QS, any update on when the dates and locations will be added to the sections, please? It's very useful being able to see them all in one view rather than clicking on each site to remind oneself of when the events are taking place...
  15. Good stuff! Last time she was here was before I saw her in Sanctuary and Supernatural, so it's great to have another opportunity to meet her.
  16. I loved TBBT as well, although I'm well aware of its many faults. Your comment about The Expanse reminds me of the incredibly long queue for Armin Shimerman's Quark photoshoot at DSTE a while back. Got chatting with other attendees (as you do), and at least two recommended I watch that show (and some con friends of mine backed them up at subsequent events). It starts slowly in S1, but keep at it if you can - it starts off as one thing and ends up being something completely different. I absolutely loved it - one of the best shows I've watched recently (so glad it's survived cancellation and is coming back in December!). The only other show I've really liked recently is Instinct. I completely agree with the criticism that Alan Cumming doesn't have the physical presence to convince as the character they originally wanted him to portray, but fortunately they stepped away from that aspect and let him shine in the ways he does best. And it was shot in New York, one of my favourite places (I've actually walked past the building they used as police HQ, although I remembered it from the remake of The Tomorrow People). And then of course they cancelled it. *sulks* I do still love Grey's Anatomy, mind. It's mindless fluff for most of the time, and then it just sucker-punches you in the gut. I think I've cried more over that show than any other (including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Joss Whedon knew how to bring The Pain). Grey's is coming back, right? I'm too scared to check right now. Oooh, and I like The Blacklist. That's still going. There. And The Rookie was enjoyable. Hoping that comes back too (haven't heard anything to the contrary). Conclusion: I really am not watching a lot of TV these days. And I used to watch a LOT. I don't know whether you have a point there, or it's just my advancing age. p.s. do NOT watch Neighbours. Natedammit is being a bad bear again.
  17. Is there any particular reason why the dates and locations of each event are not showing under the main title any more? I waited for a bit in case it was a glitch, but they don't seem to be coming back, and I haven't spotted any posts on the subject.
  18. Oooo! I really don't want to go to this event, but you're making it VERY difficult for me. (Hoping she doesn't cancel this time.)
