Kenn posting for our dear friend Ms. Patricia Bertrand aka ArcticGoddess1 of Auroris Entertainment who is hopefully resting after day one of GateCon and filing this report for Team WHR. Thank you Patricia for the nice report and for the professional courtesy in sharing images from the pre-GateCon party!

To kick off the four day weekend of GateCon, here in Vancouver, the sun came out to greet fans from all over the world, putting everyone in a convention mood.

This year’s GateCon will be the last, admits Allan Gowan, the man who has been responsible for the convention in Vancouver for the last 10 years. “Gatecon has had an incredible run, and the fans, actors, and studios have been amazingly supportive of us, but we have decided to go out on a high note after our tenth convention”, he said.

Richard Pasco, one of GateCon’s owners, added, “With corporate events dominating the convention landscape now more than ever, we have shown that a quality product can be achieved with the right mindset and that quality over quantity is the way forward. We are sad to see our conventions end, but we know the bonds that have been formed, and the friendships born out of GateCon will be our enduring legacy”.

I’m sure that Cliff Simon, Paul McGillion and Corin Nemec had spots in their eyes most of the evening, from all the camera flashes going off as they posed for pictures. J.R Bourne, Erick Avari, Dean Aylesworth and Peter Flemming had the shmoozing down to an exact science, virtually acting like a tag team as they moved from one group of fans to the next, chatting about whatever seemed to interest the group the most.

The evening came to an end at 11:00 when most of the actors headed for bed, or out for other nightly adventures. A group of actors headed for the Sutton Place Hotel, a few blocks away, followed by several fans for late night fun.

But that is where my evening ended, and ever loyal to those of you who could not attend this amazing event, I wanted to share my experiences with you. I’ll be commenting on some of the panels and other events as the convention contiClick to visit ArcticGoddess1 (Patricia Bertrand) on Twitter!nues. Desire to know more about GateCon?

  1. Your site has a very cool design. That being said the information here is both free and is of high quality.

  2. Love the pics and the report. Wish I could have been there. And it was the last one…. (sad face).
