The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

OK Marines, here's our little corner to get ready for DCon. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled to the USCM Noticeboard for all applicable threads such as:

On the Ready Line for Dragon Con 2009
Aliens Legacy Dinner at D-Con '09
Legacy table display for DC 09..
...and all other similar topics...

I will be leaving as usual from Montreal with whatever lunatics have signed up... the convoy's a little meager this year, so as I recall:

Dom
Stephane
Sid
Catherine

... am I missing anyone?

Once there, I'm in a hotel room with Mike, Stephane & Catherine... maybe a fifth will squeeze in there, not sure for now.

We will also RV there with Frank and Jennifer... hopefully Scott and Nancy as well. Kevin and Mike, Canadian by birth but USCM by choice will also RV with us there.

Any other Canadians I've failed to mention..? I think that pretty much covers all of us for this year.

If anyone has questions or comments, now's the time.



What's a laughing mailbox? Well, you had to be there. You can always ask me next time you see me, Mike or Gareth.

Sarge, can you specify which Mike? Cause as far as I remember, there's at least two or three of us Marines named Mike... :wink: Just might be helpful, me thinks.

That's me. I'm trying to erase the mailbox incident from my memory but certain bastards (you know who you are) keep bring it up. I've been scared for life! :?

So Mike (Airborn) What you are saying is that you try to get away from the mail box but it keeps pulling your hand back in?

Well, it's something like that.

More accurate would be "try to keep your hand out of the mailbox or you'll end up pulling it off" ...

Some things after midnite during Dragon con can be so wrong. How come no one talks about the pretty kissing booth babe I kissed for just a dollar? :?:

The pretty kissing booth babe...? Let's just say that (Airborne) Mike got a hell of a lot out of his $1 payment. :lol:
