The Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas is rather blessed with a heavy concentration of conventions of interest to all kinds of fans throughout the year. One of my personal favorites returns for its second big year, All-Con! All-Con 2006 will be held in Dallas, TX at the Sterling Hotel (I-183 at Regal Row) the weekend of March 17-19, 2006 and will feature events from the moment the convention opens on Friday morning to the moment it closes on Sunday afternoon! That's right, 24 hour programming!
All-Con 2006 is a fan-organized multi-genre convention featuring a great guest line-up (film/television/comic guests including Jay (Captain Typho) Laga'aia and Nalini (Barris Ofee) Krishan), two 24-hour video rooms, the second annual Ms. Star Wars competition, model building competition, costume contest, live music, improve comedy, a game show (five times during the weekend), shadowcasts of Rocky Horror and Moulin Rouge, Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre (by the nationally known Keith & Margo's), fan clubs, panels, LARP, tabletop and computer gaming, a Dealer's Room and the All-Con Super Store (by A Piece of the Action Collectibles), and more events and attractions than I have time or space to mention. Visit their website for all the information:
Mrs. JediCole and I will be there all weekend as we are producing the aforementioned game show (twice on Friday and Saturday, once on Sunday) as well as representing the Dallas/Fort Worth area's fastest growing multi-interest fan club, Fandom at Random DFW!
I hope to see many Sir Steve's Guide members at All-Con! Most of the weekend I should be easy to spot as I have taken to wearing a white lab coat to conventions! Be sure to say hello if you are attending. Need more info? Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
