Ser Scot A Ellison

ConCarolinas May 30 - June 1 2014: Charlotte NC GRRM Guest of honor

Recommended Posts

I can't make Worldcon next year so this will be my BWB event for 2014. If you can make it please come. If you're new to the Con scene a small local convention is always fun. I'm in contact with one of the organizers and I'm going to see what I can do about, possiblely getting a party room. There is a $$ problem involved with that so we shall see. If you coming let us know here.

I'd love it is some of my worldcon compatriots could make it down for this one.

My wife and I have been going to ConCarolinas for many years. I've been looking forward to the 2014 coming of GRRM since 2011.

Always looking forward to the future!

There will be an event in NC (North Carolina) in May 2014. I know that some of us would be interested in a con in the Southeast of the US. GRRM is the planned GOH.

Since this is just 'up the road' from GA, I am planning on being there.

Ser Scot already started a thread for this con:

Looks like there are a few people already planning on attending!

I would be interested in attending this as well since London is probably not in the cards for me. Thanks for the heads up! Put me down for a tentative yes. ~m.

Pretty positive that myself and my boyfriend, History of Westeros on the forum, will be attending this. Fairly easy to get to from Atlanta.

I learned something interesting tonight. And it ties into the BWB tradition of Ghost pepper drinks. The brewery that opened up in Columbia SC (my home town) Conquest Brewing is producing a Ghost Pepper Stout called "The Bi-polar Hi Roller". I've had it and it is excellent. A nice heavy beer with a clean peppery finish that has a very pleasant heat to it. When I tried it I didn't realize it was Ghost Peppers.

I'd be happy to bring some to ConCarolinas if anyone is interested in giving it a whirl. Hopefully, they'll be bottleing by then, if not I'll bring a growler.

Scot, I was just talking to Rocksniffer's niece and she is urging me to attend with her...

There's a nice easy flight to Charlotte. :)

Purchased the memberships a few minutes ago, and booked the across-the-road Courtyard by Marriott. Plan to visit the Spencer Shops railroad museum the Friday morning before the Con starts in the mid-afternoon. So please list me as +1. :)
