Please Help Con-G Bring w00tstock to Guelph/KW! [Sep. 25th, 2010|08:35 am]
The 519 café

[mood |excitedexcited]

Con-G has a chance to bring w00tstock to the Guelph/Kitchener-Waterloo area, but we need your help to do it!

To help out, simply "Like" our Facebook Page here!

What is w00tstock? Billed as "3 hours of geeks and music", it’s a fun-filled evening hosted by television host/special-effects artist Adam Savage ("MythBusters"), actor/author/blogger Wil Wheaton ("Star Trek: TNG", "Stand By Me") and music-comedy duo Paul & Storm (The Internet, Da Vinci’s Notebook) with additional guests based on location! These guys are awesome.

Songs, readings, comedy, short films, it’s the best parts of the huge US conventions all distilled into 3 hours.

Planning is in the early stages, and nothing is guaranteed, but you can help make a difference! We have been told that we need to show there are enough people who would attend a w00tstock performance held in Guelph/KW before planning can continue. Until now, they have only done performances in the USA, and all on the West Coast. We need to show them that it would be worth their while to come all the way to Canada! If we can show that at least 750-1000 people (the size of a US show) in the area want to attend, they will consider coming to Con-G!

If you would like to attend a w00tstock performance in Guelph/KW, please "Like" our Facebook Page to show your support, and pass the link on to anyone else you know that would attend!
If you do not have a Facebook account, please leave a comment on our blog indicating your support.

The 519 café

I filmed this about two hours ago. 

I want to thank people for conducting themselves well amongst the mob mentality as well as thank WRPS for their good work leap-frogging their vehicles to guide/protect the revelers.
