This email announcement arrived this afternoon (US time). It includes price info and release dates for the regular gate passes -- and even those are limited to 650!

On the bright side, the exchange rate of the British pound vs. the US dollar has improved slightly since last month.

Here's the email:

We're only a matter of hours away from the VIP ticket release for Gatecon: The Family Reunion in Vancouver this year.

Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions at the moment.

Q. When tickets go on sale, where do I go to purchase them?
A. Head directly to the Gatecon home page at www.gatecon.com. (if you get there slightly earlier than the release time, simply refresh your browser window every few seconds)

What do I need to have prepared for when they go on sale?
A. Make sure you have your credit card details ready, and also the names and email addresses for each person you are buying a ticket for. If you don't have their email address or they live in the same household, simply enter your email address next to their name.

Q. Is there a limit to how many tickets I can buy?
A. You can only purchase a maximum of 10 tickets at a time.

Q. When will the Gate Pass tickets go on sale?
A. Gate Pass tickets will go on sale on Saturday 12th January

Q. How much will Gate Passes cost?
A. The cost of a Gate Pass is 135

Q. How many Gate Pass tickets will be available?
A. 650

Q. Are Gate Pass holders able to take part in the RDA personal autograph sessions?
A. The short answer is yes.
These autograph sessions are being run by Legends Memorabilia, and will be limited to a strict number of available spots. The actual number will be determined by Legends and will be announced once the details of these sessions are finalised.

Q. Will RDA sign personal items?
A. In general, this answer will be NO. Richard is very particular about the types of items he will autograph, but may sign personal items at his discretion. You will need to check with the Legends desk at the convention to see if your personal item may be something that Richard will sign.


Q. What is included in the different ticket types?

One hour and 10 minutes.....................tick, tick, tick...............

That sound you hear is the wind and rain howling outside and me praying fervently that the power stays on for at least the next 90 minutes, uninterupted.

Please...........is it too much to ask?


The next sound will be me squee-ing with Loth! happy_dance.gif

No dammit! Screen refreshment too slow. sad.gif To say that I'm #%#%%$% would be an understatement.

OK. New plan...........stalk site next week and go for the Gate pass tickets. They still include most of the con and the add on features.

Either that or stalk ebay and hope someone wants to sell the tickets they just got.

While I was swearing at my computer during the sloooooooow refreshing, I did a quick mental calculation:

230 tickets available
10 tickets max per person
if everyone bought the max number, that's 23 people who scored tickets. Lucky dogs.

Maybe we should consider a buying club where we all pay one person to purchase tickets for all of us who want to go.

Would have to get real world names and $$ up front so no one is stuck footing the bill and waiting for payment from anyone else.

So anyway, who's up for another week of anxiety over ticket roullette?

Grrl working hard to maintain positive attitude in face of major disappoinment.

But I'm not giving up, something will work out

Beth and Loth here, plotting another round of early-morning stalkage next weekend.

It was always a crap shoot, after all -- with RDA fans around the world hanging fire in cyberspace ready to hit the site! I have to say, it was impressive in a cranky-making kind of way, seeing a "sold out" notice pop up within, what, 60 seconds?

And I have every expectation of having a terrific time even with regular Gate passes! Heck, I'll actually be meeting some of you lunatics! biggrin.gif

Major fun is to be had with the Gate Passes. Keep your chin up there, Grrrrl! We're going to take Vancouver by storm... VIP or not!

Oh heck yeah! Set backs and disappoinments are a part of life..........and mine's not ending just because I didn't score a ticket. tongue.gif

Hell I'm even thinking if I can't get a Gate pass to still go to vancouver just to meet you guys.

I can always lurk on the street corners and maybe 'accidently' bump into RDA. tongue.gif

Hey Banlu, if you have extra tickets you want to unload, I know three who'd be willing to help you out. biggrin.gif

Actually, if you want him to sign something, Gatepass people can buy one as well.

We ::blows on fingernails and scuffs them on collar:: do get a pre-signed photo, so other than for a second chance at talking to him for a sec, I might not bother with an autograph - give you peons a chance harhar.gif

I'm going with a friend, so only bought two - sorry.

Yeah, I was trying to score two as well, one for my husband who also wants to go. Oh well, there's next week, and there is a limited number of photos available for purchase so who knows, maybe I'll end up with one of those.

Enjoy your victory! biggrin.gif

First to banlu-thank you for only buying what you needed. That is decency. The same applies to the autograph session, if you decide you do not need another signature.

Second to everyone who (like my dear friend Becky) who did not score tickets as they sold out in under a minute-my condolences.

I had decided I was not going to be able to go financially already, so I used the fact that I would not likely be able to get a VIP pass as a balm to make me feel better about not trying. I hope someone worthy got the one I let go. However, the regular passes might be more doable, and while I still think I can't justify the travel, etc, I'm going to look into it. I'd love to meet some of you 'lunatics'. And whoever said that it would still be a blast is right-way to look on the bright side.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL NEXT WEEKEND!!!

I was lucky to buy two - for me and my friend.

Do you really think somebody snatched 10 tickets without needing them? You had to put in the names, after all! And they can't just resell them, that's for sure.

And yeah, please all try again next week! I still want to meet you! And you have a fairly bigger chance then, with 650 tickets for sale. This is more than the 600 of Avalon!

And yeah, Banlu is right, everybody can buy an autograph ticket. But it might be limited, so not all 1,000 will get one, but the chance is there. It also is only one autograph per person.

Plus some gate pass holders also are allowed to buy the pre-signed picture the VIP tickets get for free, there seems to be a larger number. We don't know how much yet, though.

We also are not sure yet if Rick will sign other things than the pictures you buy there, though. I would be glad to bring this picture of me for signing.

Y'all still have a chance to buy a VIP ticket!

Look what I just got in an email from Gatecon!

QUOTE
GATE PASS RELEASE

The release of the Gate Pass tickets for Gatecon 2008: The Family Reunion will be on Saturday 12th January at 1pm (1300 hours) GMT. To view what time this corresponds to in your local time zone, please visit http://www.gatecon.com/vancouver/countdown.asp

The price of a Gate Pass ticket will be 135. To view information on what a Gate Pass includes, please visit http://www.gatecon.com/vancouver/faq.asp

Please Note: The sale of Gate Passes will be through a direct link on the Gatecon home page (www.gatecon.com) and NOT through the Gatecon Store.


VIP LOTTERY

There are still a few VIP tickets available. These have come about because of some non-payers, some who accidentally bought a ticket as a surprise present for a friend (even though their friend had already bought one) and also from a couple of people who did silly things like hit the refresh button during their purchase.

We have decided to hold a lottery for the remaining few VIP tickets left. To get into the lottery, visit the link below and add yourself in

http://www.gatecon.com/lottery.asp

PLEASE NOTE: The prize in this lottery is the opportunity to buy a VIP ticket. The prize is NOT a free VIP ticket.

The draw(s) will be totally random. Each entry will be put into a list and assigned a unique number. We will have an impartial judge who will draw out a random list of numbers (based on the number of entries we have) and the entry corresponding to that number will be offered a VIP ticket. The person(s) we chose as judges will not have any access to the list nor know who is on the lottery list.

Please read the terms and conditions on the lottery page very carefully. But most importantly: 1.We are only allowing one entry per person. 2. You must be prepared to pay for your VIP ticket within 24 hours of recieving an email from Gatecon, otherwise it will go back into the lottery pool.

We will also be allowing you to enter the name of a second person to recieve a VIP ticket with you in your travelling party. Please Note: You may only enter a second person if you will be the person paying for their ticket. If you are not paying for their ticket then the other person must enter the lottery themselves.

The draws for the remaining VIP tickets will be completed by the end of the week, the first one taking place on Thursday, so winners will know by the time that the Gate Passes go on sale.

Good Luck

ETA - jumble65's post wasn't there when I started LOL

Just a quick follow-up regarding the lottery for the remaining VIP tickets...

...we are delighted to announce that the two independent drawmasters for the lottery will be Richard Dean Anderson and Paul Brown from Legends Memorabilia. The two gents will randomly pick numbers that correspond to the lines on a spreadsheet of entries we receive between now and 8pm GMT on Thursday. As mentioned in the original announcement, thay have no knowledge of who has entered the draw and will not have access to the list of names at any time.

Just to clear up a couple of questions we have been asked:

1. You may only enter the draw once, either as an individual or as a couple. No duplication of the same name is permitted.

2. By entering the draw you agree to send payment for your ticket/s within 24 hours of request for payment.

Good Luck and don't forget entry closes at 8pm GMT Thursday!!

To existing VIP holders - you should now have all received your ticket confirmation from me. Please let me know if it has not arrived.

Richard


Lottery winners should thank Rick personally for drawing their numbers LOL

Hi Antje

Well the winning names have now been drawn and everyone has been sent an email of congrats - and asking for payment! So if you didn't get a winner's notice thank you for taking part. Should there be any non-payments we will draw again from the list of entries.

Richard Dean Anderson and Paul Brown also asked that I pass on a message as well:

"Good luck to one and all....sorry we couldn't pick a winning number for each and every one of you. To those whose numbers don't come up, don't forget the Gate Pass tickets, you won't be sorry! Thank you all for your tremendous support - Richard & Paul"

So like they say GatePass tickets launch this Saturday - check the website for all the details.
Many Thanks,
Richard



So, did anybody win?

Somebody did..............but it wasn't me. Looks like I'll be staking my turf in the early AM on Saturday.

BTW Astra, thanks for the advice on how you scored your tickets. I've got a plan and will be running 2 PCs on the DSL. If I can't get a ticket with this set-up, then I must have really annoyed someone in the Karmic universe.

Here some things written by sugarshaker at Gateworld:

QUOTE


  • It doesn't pay to get up hours early.  You can get on about 10-15 min. before the sale and keep refreshing, and your chances will be the same.



  • I got a white screen saying "if this does not direct you within 25 seconds, click here".  Don't wait.  I kept refreshing anyway and got in.


  • If you're going to use PayPal, check your spending limit with them first.  I thought the limit was the limit on my linked credit card, but PayPal imposes a limit of their own.  I got a message saying that the transaction exceeded my spending limit even though I had plenty of available balance on my credit card.  That caused all kinds of problems, which the GateCon people graciously worked out, but I wouldn't want to have to do it over.



  • Once you get into the screen where you select the number of tickets (with the drop down menu), choose the number you want and click to acknowledge that you accept the agreement.  Do that part fast.  After that, your tickets are reserved and you can take your time entering your names and payment method.


That was my experience last week at any rate.  I don't know what may or may not have changed since then.  Oh, and also go in from the GateCon home page (www.gatecon.com).  Don't click on "tickets" and get into the site.  The link you need to get in will be on that first page.

Only a couple of weeks away

A hug from Mac seemed to cure almost anything ~sigh~

I'm happy for you, Loth! Now you have a chance to be near to him without a photo session. Squee!

So, where is 'Beth's squee? Let's hear it! *fingers crossed*

And just so that you know what I am determined to let sign, since this empty space over Jack's head really did bug me for a few years, now:

I squee most fervently for Lothi happy_dance.gif , but not for myself; I didn't win. I shall bask in the secondhand squee from her instead.

You won't need a to use a flash... I'll be glowing so brightly I may burst into flames.

Bring a wheelbarrow... I may need to be carried out. happy.gif
