  1. I framed the autograph and photo shoot from my first ever convention where i met BEN BROWDER. but since then i have used special pockets and folders from franks autographs(no longer with us)/timecare
  2. I put all my posters in poster tubes.
  3. I hope to go to LFCC next year. hoping i can save up enough for a gold ticket again as only managed to join 1 queue to get 1 autograph this weekend just gone. GRRRR. so if i can save up enough for gold + hotel then i will be able to join the queue's to get the auto's i want.
  4. If showmasters couldn't do a solely NCIS con it would be cool if they could do maby a CRIME CON and get guests from - NICS, NCIS Los Angeles, Hawiee 5O, CSI NewYork, CSI Miami. These are all AWSOME crime dramas and I'm sure they could get a LOAD of fans who watch these. Or atleast it would be awsome if they could get some main stars from these at comic con.
  5. I agree maby the bigger guests should be mixed up with the smaller guests rather than all the bigger guests being all in 1 area. if they were mixed up there wouldnt be so much crowding.
  6. Bonapp As another suggestion i think the organizers should put some metallic barriers to canalize the people, it'd be more convenient for your staff to control who can access to the queue and who can't. I agree with this and have been saying it for a couple of years now. It would make it far easier for EVERYONE of there was a barrier to queues.

  8. there were plenty of stalls there was just more space to walk around and they had the whole building so they were more spread apart.
  9. I was only at LFCC on Saturday- but I was aching a LOT all over Saturday night and had to take pain killers once I got home.Then on Sunday my right shoulder and neck were still hurting. Thankfully today I'v started to recover.
  10. well here's my pro's and cons of Saturday POSITIVE 1. I could feel the air conditioning a bit unlike last year whitch was just an oven 2. The isles were bigger. It wasn't a crush trying to get through the dealers 3. Getting into the venue was good. I got there around 9 and I just walked round the building and it didn't take too long to get in. There were well organised staff directing everyone. 4. The whole building was used so plenty of space to move around and sit down. 5. The photo areas were closer together. ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT 1. Queuing for the photo shoots was bad. you couldn't hear the staff near the back, they didnt listen at first when I asked about my batch number and they weren't telling everyone to move forward. Also many people were pushing in front even if they had a higher batch number because the staff had no control. 2. I waited over 45 minutes at the sales desk whilst the staff chatted away to each other rather than serving. Need more staff who know what is for sale. 3. Directions to the sales desk. It took me an hour and asking several staff members who all gave different directions to get there. BAD 1. I am a seasoned con goer who has been coming to showmaster events for many years. I only came for 3 guests and I only managed to get 1 autograph and 1 photo shoot all day. I stood near one of the guests of hours but wasn't allowed in the queue even though I didn't want to chat with the guest or care about personalisation. Then near the end of the day they let a load of gold pass people (who said they would be back tomorrow- i.e. Sunday) join the back of the queue and not let the few day people join even though they couldn't be back the next day to meet the guest they wanted. Yes I know we pay for gold to join the queue but this was 1/2 hour before closing. surely if you're only there for a day and its almost the end of they day you could open the queue to the few day passes who have been standing around for hours waiting? 2. I went to meet a few authors from YALK. I was really excited to get to meet a couple of the authors and had pre spoken to them on facebook before hand only to get there to find the authors were only there on 1 day. I had seen nothing on the forum about who'd be there what day and had brought my books to be signed and was really let down to find the authors NOT there. 3. I heard right at the end of the day that Dononic Monaghands queue for the last part of the Sat before his talk had been an open queue but even those near by waiting didn't know as the staff didn't announce it meaning the few who really wanted to meet him who might have before the end of the day never got to see him. overall a disappointing day. I will come back next year but hopefully with a gold ticket which cross fingers I can join the back of any queue (other than I know diamond pass) so I can actually get the few autographs I want.
  11. it took 3 attempts with Domonic monaghan to get a non glare photo. I didn't mind. more time with my arm round him. LOL
  12. I'm not a crew but i might be able to help newbies with a few questions. I will most likely be in a blue t-shirt that says OBEY on it and have the eye of sauron on it.
  13. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154134645074282&set=t.1833434985&type=3&theater I don't know if this'll work but try this.
  14. Alexis doing his chico the mind reading monkey sure was a laugh. My favorite guests just happen to be those I least expected at many cons. My favorite experience: the private guest encounters and the staying up till the early hours of the morning with guests I have attended 7 chevron's- 7.5 standard, 7.7 standard, 7.8 silver, 8.0 silver, 8.1 silver, 8.2 gold, 8.3 gold the things I will never forget- getting a kiss from peter Williams & A hug from Alexis, Kavan Smith and Andee Frizell, Robin Dunne pulling his trousers down and everyone cheering, the group dances on the dance floor at the parties. The things i will miss the most- Meeting up with all me friends each year and The group dances on the dance floor
  15. and the countdown goes from days to hours. only 10 hours to go.
  16. Tomorrow tomorrow I love you tomorrow your only a day away. woo can't wait to get in there and meet up with all my good friends. See you all tomorrow everyone.
  17. Yep got mine yesterday.Silver no1 or S001 to be more precise to the letter. I can't wait! Depending on if there are any left and depending how much money i have i might upgrade to gold at the event when i sign in.
  18. The included photo's in your registration pack with all be different. some may have multiple charterers on it (only 1 being a person being at the con) or some may be a picture of single character. Usually all the pictures are from the show and you aren't likely to get just a head shot of the actor. If you don't like any of the pictures you get in your pack you don't have to use them. you can buy a photo in the dealers room and get that signed instead. Hope this helps.
  19. Hi i was wondering when our letters would be sent out as its only around 2 weeks till the event now. I got my ticket at the event last year so have nothing i can print out and i cannot as of right now find any receipt i may have been given. Many regards.
  20. will you also be able to go from silver to gold?
  21. Even if they do stop selling tickets several days before the event due to posting of the letters you can still turn up at chevron and get a ticket on the day of the event. I know of people who have done that before.
  22. My friend only found out about it after i went last year and is unable to attend this year. she is gutted too she will be unable to attend a chevron now.
  23. Hi i know everyone wants this to be the best chevron ever if its going to be the last so even though i know not all these things may be able to happen but i though it might be good to put some suggestions on what people might like to see at the last chevron this year. If anyone else also had any ideas pleas add. I'm not the one organizing but if enough people comment then we might be lucky enough to get something really cool we all want. 1. A screening room showing episodes from stargate. We had this in the past and it was awesome to just slip into the room and watch a few episodes of stargate whilst there was a really long queue or if you just wanted a break, or showing the movies. 2. The spinning stargate at one of the parties. It's always attracted a crowd whenever we have had it in the past and its so fun to take a go on. 3. A stall selling BIG FINISH stargate audio books. 4. More merchandise stalls in the dealers room. What do you think? If anyone else has any other good ideas post a comment and maby showmasters might take into account if were lucky?
