Were you at TitanCon 2012? Was it any good?

Seriously I didn't get to see any of it, was it alright?

It was brilliant!

Nice people everywhere, great locations, fantastic weather (for N. Ireland) and a lot of fun.

Re: 2012 members check in

It was my first convention, and honestly I went to it a little disappointed with the final guest list.  I shouldn't have been though I had a fantastic day, really enjoyed myself even although I went by myself as my friends aren't geeky enough apparently ;) I only entered for 2 events the round table chats with Miltos and Ian  and got picked for both I have to say both very nice and friendly guys a pleasure to meet them, I was very surprised that my tickets got picked for both sadly this luck did not hold out until the raffle as I got nothing in it lol

I also really enjoyed the autograph/photo opportunities, the extras chat (even if I did have a bit of beard envy), and several of the chats with the actors in the main hall during the day.

Re: 2012 members check in

Badvoc,  I know we had issues with guests last year due to some minor award ceremany many of the actors and even George and Parris where forced to attend.   which is I guess the main reason this years Con is on a different date.        George won't attend, he's got far to much stuff on his plate, but if Parris has no other engaugments she might consider comming.

But to be honest the Guest Actors only make up a little of a great con experiance, because a Great con experiance is made up by all the hard work and effeorts of the committee members, volunteers and last but not least all the people that attend not just those people on the Pannels.  It really is a comunity coming together.  its also true the more you put in the more you will get out.

Oh good weather makes a big differance as well, especially on any outings/coach tours.

This time MG, can you make sure its dry on the Monday as well,  hiding from the rain waiting for the Pub to open after being kicked out of the hotels was not fun.

No, it most certainly is not. lol  I was rather wet before I finally retreated to Cafe Nero/Starbucks/Whatever coffee shop it was across the road. And then had to get even more of a soaking when the nearest cash machine was out of order. Booo.

But, I'll take a soaking on the Monday anyday if it means a rain-free Tour. :D

Re: 2012 members check in

It's not a proper trip to Belfast if you don't get soaked on at least one of the days ;)

I agree, if we'd had the Monday's weather when we were at the Giant's Causeway it could have been very unpleasant.

I don't remember it raining much for Moot 1.

As I said I was worried about it just before I went when I seen the final list, but I had such a great day and was more than happy with the guests I did meet.  I've now started an obsessive GoT autographed photo collection, and just like pokemon I've got to get them all ;)

After losing my con cherry last year I would have to agree it's not all about the guests.

Re: 2012 members check in

Definately a fantastic trip!  It was my second Con, and I don't think anything else will ever out-do the Fun Bus on the coach tour!

Re: 2012 members check in

The 2nd one wasn't as strong as the 1st (that was really good) from a guests and panels perspective, but I still enjoyed myself.

Re: 2012 members check in

Hey 

I thoroughly enjoyed every second of TitanCon 2012 (even the getting lost bit!), It has also really added to my enjoyment of the show- watching Brienne and Jamie fight on the bridge made me shout at the TV - Kings Landing Tourney grounds are just over there- run!!
Meeting some of the actors since then has also been more interesting as when I talk about the tour they always have stories about that particular location. I hope to do it all again in September 2013!
