LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Making a weekend out of it, sounds really good.
Where's everyone staying?

Hi Anne....I'm going to try to get in at the Delta...it's right across from the convention centre and since I might be alone...that would work better for me...how about yourself? Let me know, ok!
Hope you had a nice Groundhog Day!

I'm planning to book my daughter and I into the Delta for the weekend. Being Halloween on the Saturday, there's a great place nearby called the Forks Market. Old Via rail station that's been converted into specialty shops and an outdoor promenade. There's usually entertainment every weekend, and being Halloween night on the Saturday, should be some great stuff going on ( for those who want a break from the con stuff ).

That sounds like fun.

Would be lovely to get the chance to met Dirk in Sydney if he does come. I'll be checking back nearer to the time.

*DragonCon convention in Atlanta, Georgia / September 4-7th, 2009*

OOOHHH how I wish I could make it to this Con !!! *SIGHS*
There would be at least 4 Celebs that I'd like to meet (Richard Hatch / Dwight Schultz / Erin Gray / and of course...Dirk !!! ......well, they were all still scheduled to appear the last time I checked the site...) !!! I doubt that there will be another chance to see them all at the same Con...well at least not "close by"... I do have the days off but don't have the $$ to spare to attend...okay now I'm...
Is there any lucky guys or girls here who are planning on attending ? If so, please take lots of pics and tell us all about it !

Hi everyone! How are we all doing? I don't think I can go now to the Winnipeg one. We don't have anyone to stay with the kids for that weekend....and I don't like to travel alone, especially when I have never been there before, so I'ts still up in the air for now....I would be sooooo disappointed if I couldn't go!
Keep good thoughts that something will change, ok!
Bye for now!
Hugs to all, Sharon

Flash, I so agree! Would love to go, but alas ......

Sharon, that would be so sad for you to miss this opportunity. No friends (either yours or the kids's) around where they could have a sleepover for that time? I hope you'll find a solution, because I would hate you to miss this event because of the 'babysit problem' only ....

Hi. New to the site. Planning on going to Dragon Con. Super super excited about it. Mainly going to see Dirk and Dwight because they are so close and I will probably never have a better chance to do so, but want to take in the whole thing. I've never been to a SciFi convention before (well, once when I was maybe 7, don't really remember it though). Anybody have suggestions of "must see", "must do" or just general advice so I don't get lost and look like I left the map in my underwear drawer. lol...

Sometimes I think I've become "immune" to pictures - then I see one like this and... yeah, hair...

(And I freely admit to my shallowness! )
