Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

I'm in for sure but definitely a larger room. Was hoping this year's would be a little later so that I can finish my HIC but you're right, you'll probably get more people in the spring.

Sooner we have a date the better! :)

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

We don't want it too close to Polaris in July and Fan Expo in August.
Any suggestions are always welcome.

I plan to see about better advertising of the event.

At least we can start planning well in advance.

Thanks for the response Mike.

We could leave it for June.

Cause July is Polaris, August fan expo.

Is September too late in the year?

We'll figure it out.

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

I don't think September is too late. If that's the month I'll bring my HIC.

But schedule it for when you think you'll get the most people. My HIC can wait for next year if need be. ;)

Also don't be discouraged if not many people post over the next month or so. A lot of folks are a little preoccupied with the problems going on right now!

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

Neilo, awesome, thanks.

Hopefully we will have got the wheels moving at least early in the year. Last year's had max 3 months to plan.

I"m going to see about getting an ad in Eye magazine

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

Ok, just some details to use as reference.

Last year's room was 33 x 36

next size up is 30 x 45 - we would have a better setup for tables - 2 longer sides

next above that is 57 x 41 and that's big, like a small convention size.

After this years xmas party, count me in.

And earlier in the year is better for me, FYI.

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

I think you'll probably get the most people sometime late April. Weather is pretty good, people aren't on vacation yet, no conflict with other big events...

I'll be happy to donate another prize if we do a raffle. Perhaps a grail diary this time. :)

Also, I'll aim to finish some projects in time to bring them in for the party. It's a good deadline to set. I'll probably need 4 tables though... That okay?

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

Yeah, I like April too.

We'll have to plan it either before or after Easter.

If we get the bigger room you should have 4 tables no problem.
Comparing to last year's room, it would be like 1 length of the room.

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

We're in for sure! Mind you, April 14 is Wizardworld Comicon in Toronto (as well as AdAstra). So just avoid that date!

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

Well, those are the big ones here - Wizardworld, Polaris, FanExpo. but there are all sorts of smaller one's popping up. FanEx has a comicon coming up March 10-11, then there's the 2012 Canadian 80s Toy Expo on april 1st (they have 2 or 3 during the year)

Yeah, there's stuff going on!

Re: 2012 Toronto Prop Party

Not into comics, toys (aside from Doctor Who CO stuff), or wizards so that just leaves me with Polaris & FanExpo.

Now if only they could get better guests at Polaris...
