MEET LOUIS!


Want to meet Louis in person, get some autographs and have your picture taken with him? Now's your chance! Louis is here at Dragon*Con in Atlanta on Labor Day weekend! Go to the Dragon*Con main page to plan your trip! We hope to see many of you there!



Here are more details for Dragon*Con newbies:

Please be sure to read the convention policies.

Tickets are $130. You will receive a badge which you have to wear at all times. You can bring your own lanyard or purchase one there. In a pinch a shoelace will do; the badge also has a clip. Plan on a couple of hours to pick up your badge (see map here) - with around 60,000 people at the con the waiting time in line can be quite long! You can also purchase badges for only one specific day, or for 2 or 3 days. Check the Dragon*Con store for what you need. You will receive a big program book when you pick up your badge, but things change literally by the minute, so a phone with the Dragon*Con app is very useful! You can follow them on Facebook or Twitter or other social media as well. The Daily Dragon will be your lifeline! And here is the first complete con schedule!

***
UPDATE By Daily Dragon staff
August 22, 2014 @ 9:31 AM
The Walk of Fame will be located in the Marquis Ballroom on the Marquis Level at the Marriott. One part of the printed Pocket Program lists an incorrect location. Apologies for any confusion!

***

Jump on hotel rooms while you can! At this point all the official hotels and most of the overflow hotels are booked, but sometimes they release a few more rooms due to cancellations. Try Expedia or similar online reservation sites. I've set up a thread at the Forum where you can look for roommates. If you haven't signed up for the Forum - it's quick and easy and nobody will send you spam!

The public transportation system MARTA gets you around Atlanta very well, and the con also runs shuttle buses around downtown. But if you have to lodge further out, just get a rental car, drive in and park somewhere. I usually leave my car in the Georgia Pacific parking structure on Courtland Ave/ Ellis Street/ J.W. Dobbs Avenue, which is $12 per day (the $5 weekend rate does not apply during the con). If you share a room with others you can split the parking fee or take turns. There are cheaper places to park but they usually fill up before the con. At the GP you can also park overnight as long as you fill out this form and check in with security, which is in the adjacent building.
 
If you're flying, remember that Delta has a special Dragon*Con rate. You can take MARTA from the airport to downtown or book a rental car - Dragon*Con has worked out special rates with several companies! Lots more transportation info can be found here.
 
Bring good walking shoes; unlike most big cons this one is not in one large convention center; you'll be trekking between several hotels all day. A good portion of your time will be spent waiting in line, so bring a six-pack of patience with you! Bring a map or a phone with a map-app. In Atlanta every other street seems to be called Peachtree-something-or-other; it can get confusing. Most downtown streets are one-way streets - walking is truly your best option. Bring a water bottle and some snacks; restaurants are usually crowded and lines can be long. Also recommended are sunscreen (if your line is outdoors) and an umbrella or rain poncho (when it rains it pours in Atlanta!). The con has excellent disability accommodations.

Louis will be attending various panels - they are usually Question-and-Answer type events where you can ask questions of one or more guests that are on the stage. He will also be signing autographs at a table on the Walk Of Fame in the large Marriott Marquis Ballroom with many other celebrities. Ferreira Fest will be at his table so come say hi! We will be running a fundraiser for our two charities, so here's an easy way to contribute. You can purchase official photos for Louis to sign or you can bring your own materials. There will be a fee for autographs. You may also want to have your picture taken with him by a professional photographer (be sure to read the photographer FAQ), or right there at his table (also for a fee). A portion of all those fees will go towards our charities! Bring cash if possible, it will really speed things up.


UPDATE 8-22-2014 10pm

Here is a map of Louis' location in the Walk of Fame:


(taken from the official 2014 Pocket Program )

The Walk of Fame is open during the following dates and times:
Friday: 1:00 pm–7:00 pm  DONE!
Saturday/Sunday: 10:00 am–7:00 pm  DONE
Monday: 10:00 am–5:00 pm (no Louis)

This is a good place to start. Whenever possible, Louis will be at his table. We will have a sign there, indicating when we'll be back from a panel or photo op or a meal.


According to the official Con Pocket Program schedule, Louis will appear on the following panel:

Friday August 29, 4 PM – Supergate II – Destiny Calls!
Our cadre of Stargate: Universe guests offerthoughts on serving on the Destiny and being a
part of the Stargate family. D. Blue, L. Ferreira, O. Grauer; Fri 4:00 pm; Augusta Ballroom [Westin] DONE!


UPDATE 8-28-2014

Louis has photo ops scheduled on the following dates and times:

Friday August 29       12:35pm  DONE!

Saturday August 30           1pm  DONE!

Sunday August 31       12:15pm  DONE!

All photo ops are in the Marriott on the street level floor directly across from the Hilton. If you stand with your back to the Hilton, the photo ops will be to your left through the glass doors.

***


Louis is really looking forward to meeting all of you!
 
Don't hesitate to ask if you need more info!
