previous attendees have gone through it and survived: you'll be fine... Maybe end up a wee bit more wacko than originally but.... yeah, you'll be fine :p

Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the facebook group, I've joined that too.

Hi Suzi I followed you on twitter too, don't know how I'm going to survive the excitement either :)

easy, keep talking to others, we'll live off each other's excitement... And right now's nothing compared to closer to the date...

Bwahahah, love having newbies around, dunno why. Promise I don't bite, so don't be afraid to come and see me ! :badgrin:


And sorry my personal account is protected, just had too many spammers, in the end I grew weary of those. But no worries, usually if I see stuff about Amanda, or SG, or whatever common interests I'm never against adding. Never feel shy to ask me anything either, it may take some time as I do not have internet 24/7, but I'll always get back to you.


And feel reassured, with this bunch of people around here, you are in good hands. Personnally NEVER had to complain and had a brilliant time when it was my first con at AT4 ;)


Cheers ! xox

Howdy,
I been reading through all the posts. So, this will be my fifth AT - Gabit event. Started going with AT3 (and I came alone and not knowing anyone).

To all the newbies, be prepared to have fun. That is what this weekend is all about. Most everyone is very friendly and a little nutz! ;) The lobby becomes a second home for many of us as we gather and chat and have fun. Fill free to join in any of the groups...everyone is very friendly.

As for food, etc: there is a Starbucks inside the hotel and a pub under 5 minutes away. And of course there is the hotel restaurant as well. Plus a little longer walk to McD's and other places.

Oh and as for the earlier comment about not remembering names - I'm one of those people as well. However, I do remember faces! :) So don't take it personally - I'd forget my own name if I didn't have a driver's license and passport to remind me! :D

Hello to all !!
My name is Pascale, I am a mother of two sons, Allan and Paul. My job is nurse in a children's hospital. For me, the AT7 is the first time. I am happy but I am worried because I come alone and I do not know anyone! I'm very shy !!
I have a small question, does anyone want to share a room with me ? . I do not snore, do not talk in my sleep and I'm not sleepwalking! This my husband says!!
I hope I'm not too make mistakes in English ! Fortunately there reste10 months to improve my English! phew!!
see you soon
Hugs :D :D

newbie going alone to AT7

Postby unicorn » Mon Jun 17, 2013 9:41 pm

Hi everyone,
Just thought I would post that I will also be going along on my own to AT7.... definitely seems like billy no mates for that weekend... boohoo :(

I would be happy to talk to anyone on the day, never mind Amanda.

So hi and hello and if you hear a scottish accent it might be mine.

Sandra xx
I trust in me, so you can too, if you have earned it.

As it says in the subject line, you won't be alone for long. Attendees will be easy to see in the massive foyer of the hotel. You will get drawn into one of the many groups there and will make new friends very quickly.

Looking forward to seeing you then.

Nope, it doesn't have to be an Amanda related costume. Costume up however you like. There are folks who don't even dress up. You can now stop resisting the urge to buy pretty renaissance dresses. Spend more money!! ;)

Also, hello everyone! This will be my second AT event and I am ridiculously, superly excited.

You won't be the only Scots in the event. We have several more coming and some are staff and stewards. You'll be right at home!

Hi everyone!

I, too, shall be a newbie at AT7. My name's Jacqueline (although everyone refers to me as Jac) and I'm an Irish lass.

I've spoken to a few fellow AT7 attendees via Twitter, but I haven't actually met any of them in person, so I’m still nervous for February. This will also be my first GABIT event (or any event/convention of this sort) so I don't know what to expect. It'll also be my first time meeting Amanda – so I guess I've a few reasons to be nervous and excited. I can't wait to meet everyone though; I'm counting down the days!

I'm on Twitter as well - @wacky_jacqs - if you don't mind numerous tweets about my love for AT, RDA, Stargate and Sanctuary, of course!

Hi Jac! And welcome to the madness that is GABIT. It's fairly quiet over here at the moment, but it will liven up closer to the event. I'm sure I won't be the only one to respond to you, and you will get to know more of us before you arrive.

We're all fairly harmless and great fun to be around. :newbanana: You're in for a treat.

Mumsey :wahoo:

Thank you for the welcome Mumsey - I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and learning all about what the AT weekend involves. I think I'll be out of my comfort zone, but everyone seems lovely so far, so I know I'll be in good hands! :)
