Well, If anyone is interested, the Dallas convention in early November has been cancelled. Due to small number of tickets sold.  The cast of TOS was scheduled to appear.

I am so bummed out.   I was planning on attending.  It would have been great to meet all the TOS cast (minus Kelly of course, and Doohan).

Well - Der, I was under that impression also.  

But I was told in a letter from the place (creation entertainment) - that they sold less than 100 tickets.  I am sure many would have purchased their tickets at the door.  But I guess they have their ways of gauging the turnout... and with a small number of tickets being sold....  they couldn't pay for all the celebs that were supposed to appear.  

Also, they may have been doing a "trial" with that con in Dallas.  Because I don't think that I have seen a con scheduled in Dallas before. (Recently, anyway...) --   You see, from what I understand -- certain areas do better with Star trek cons than others... I know they have alot of them in the New York City area and in the west, Vegas and California.....    nothing ever comes to the south, where I live!!! :(

Yes Charlie, Dallas is about 450 miles from me.  Orlando is about 650 miles.   I have considered flying to Orlando for the one the weekend of November 20 - but my son's birthday is that weekend.  So I cannot.  However, I am strongly considering flying to the NY city con Thanksgiving weekend.  


I JUST WANNA MEET HIM!!!!!!!!! :laugh:

Linda...seriously, I am flat out hoping you meet Nimoy more than me meeting Jesus. Well almost, but you with Nimoy is a VERY close second. I know it means that much...

I'd give up meeting Mr. Bakula if you could meet Nimoy.

I mean, I don't really have a good reason to meet him...just a bad case of a crush, but you have been a faithful fan for many, MANY years, and I really want you to meet him. :)

God bless,
Vulcan

You'll get there. Keep that goal in mind, like a compass point on the horizon. Don't give up.

Thanks Der!!

Linda,
I waited in line for 5 hours (with a 4yr old in tow) to get tickets to see Mr. Nemoy! I went through the autograph line and only got to see him a few minutes but...wow...he was so nice. I was just proud of myself that I didn't turn into "fanboy". That's what my friend Dan calls it when you see your favorite star and become
"star" struck, and then turn into a blithing idiot!
Good luck! I know you'll get there!

While you're at it, please settle the question on the length of his cyliner....I still haven't forgotten that.

LOOK!!!! I would love more than anything to ask to check the size of his cylinder!!! :laugh: Or invite him up to my room!!!! But I really doubt any of that would actually happen!!!

But I gotta admit --- I still have my dreams of something like that actually happening!!!! :laugh:
