For those of you hanging around the Twitter-verse last night, you’ve already seen that Tom has landed in Atlanta for the four day extravaganza that is Dragon*Con. He tweeted:
Just got to the hotel, jamming on the g tar, madness out there! So many people, gonna b a crazy weekend! http://twitpic.com/gdmsu
And crazy it will be! Good thing Tom got some rest last night. According to their website, “Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US.” The con hosts upwards of 30,000 plus people every year over this U.S. holiday weekend, and this year will be no exception.
Tom’s schedule is pretty packed for the event, and when he isn’t in the main ballroom signing autographs he’ll be at scheduled photo opportunities and Q&A sessions with the fans. It is still possible to purchase admittance to Dragon*Con itself, as well as each individual photo opportunity. Tom’s schedule will include:
Walk of Fame- Hilton: Grand Ballroom 2nd Floor – This is where all autograph sessions will take place. Tom is expected to be in here when he is not scheduled elsewhere. The room is open from 10am to 7pm and is also where the dozens of other celebrities such as Leonard Nimoy, Ben Browder, James Marsters, Kate Mulgrew, and Claudia Black will be located.
Photo Op Session- Fri, 1:15pm and 1:30pm – Marriott International Level Rooms A&B
Q&A- An Hour with Draco Malfoy- Fri, 4pm Sheraton Grand Ballroom A-F
Photo Op Session- Sat. 2:15pm and 2:30pm Marriott International Level Rooms A&B
Q&A- An Hour with Draco Malfoy- Sat, 1pm Sheraton Grand Ballroom A-F
Photo Op Session- Sun, 10:45am Marriott International Level Rooms A&B
Q&A- An Hour with Draco Malfoy- Sun, 11:30am Marriott Atrium Ballroom
Q&A- An Hour with Draco Malfoy- Mon, 11:30am Hyatt Centennial Ballroom II & III
In attendance this year will be members of the Feltbeats Army, and they will be promoting Tom from the relative safety of his official fan table. If you are in Atlanta make sure to stop by and give a great big hug to the girls (and guy!) in their snazzy Caribbean Blue FeltForce t-shirts. For this event we added our names to the back of the shirts because Tom only knows us by name and he said he wanted to be able to recognize us more easily. Be on the look-out for BSerLori, JJBuck, Stormlite02, Gidge_8, SouthernBets, and AerynBlack as our official Feltbeats.com representatives. I know this shirt has my name on it, but I bought it when I was still able to go.
Aren’t they pretty?
Planning on attending Dragon*Con? Care to share? We’d love to hear about any and all experiences.
