What: Zaudunyanicon 2017

When: August Fri, 11 – Sun, 13

Where: Holiday Inn, 855 Wellington Road South, London, ON N6E 3N5, Canada

Again, there is a new thread, now that we have some real information and dates.
---------

Alright, Wilshire prompted me to make this happen the other day so here we go.

As some of you know, MG, FB, GJ, Camlost, and myself pilgrimaged to Wilshire's last summer to pick up our copies of TGO, buy way too much food, eat too little of it, and set all time American drinking records. I'm way outstanding on posting picture proof but I can promise fun was had - GJ and I golfed and MG loves naps, meatball subs, and pie and ice cream (as I recall ;) ).

We're hoping to up the ante this year with Zaudunyanicon 2017 in London, Ontario, make it another great weekend, and hopefully garnish with a token appearence by the man himself.

I'm just looking to gauge interest before I look into booking a hotel venue and Wilshire admonished me to do so while flights are still cheap (as we're hoping to do this late July/early August).

Sound off, friends. Let us make it so :D!

Anyway, we're a bit late on sending out the public invite, so if this event is actually going to happen we'll need responses soonish. We just  need to know:

Are you interested?
Could you potentially go?

Keep in mind if we get a small handful of us there we might be able to convince Bakker to come. And I'll tell you, he doesnt make many appearances, so if you ever want a signed book... this would be it.

London Canada is close to Niagra falls, maybe that's a bargaining chip you can use to help convince your self/husband/wife/SO/family

Make it real! TUC release party, Bakker signing/speech/reading/interview/who knows, actually talk IRL with fellow humans that read TSA... we can't do it though if no one shows up.

Leave a comment.
Or Message me here, or faceboom, or reddit, or wherever else you might have come accross my contact info. Or message Bakkerfans, or Madness. Tons of ways to contact us, pick any one them.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Interest?  Yes.

Can do it?  Not sure.

Family vacation for me is the end of June, so the bigger distance between that and this is the bigger chance I can make it.

How many days were you guys thinking of?  Weekdays?

Barring some unforeseen disaster, I will be there. Any ideas on the venue/lodging? I remember talk about a pool hall or something such, unless I'm making up memories again.

I would love to attend, but life circumstances make it impossible this year. But in future years, it should become much easier for me to travel. Hoist a few for me,  guys.

Are you interested? Sure I am!

Could you potentially go? I could...the fact is that I was planning a 2-week trip to (a small part of) Ontario and possibly Newfoundland, so this event could fit pretty well! My idea was to come to Canada the second half of August, but this could be easily moved to the first half or so if you provide me with the possible dates. Coming in July would be a problem I fear...just for the record I would be coming from the UK.

Details are still not really decided upon. Weekend almost certainly, maybe just one saturday. Really depends on how much interest. Costs money to rent a space, so I'm not sure how much would be affordable, how much time people would really want to be around for. On the one hand, if you're close by, a single say probably seems reasonable, on the other hand people that are farther out might not want to travel for just one day of whatever it is we're doing.

I imagine Bakker's attendance is key. He doesn't really do signings, readings, whatevers, either online or IRL, so an event like this would be one of the few times that might actually happen.

Interested I am...
Going I am probably not. Why, asks you? Answered the question some Merchant did:
Yeah I live too far away and have too little money.

Canada is far away for most people - even people in Canada lol. But That's where Mr. Bakker resides, so this is where we must go.

If its just me and Madness hanging out with Bakker, I won't complain much, but it'd be better if more fans can partake.

I'd love to come, wether or not that is possible....another story. I'd need to know a date and all that. Then chances are still miniscule, but I would try.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace!
