Reminder: Shore Leave 32 is Almost Here!

16 June 2010 One Comment by

Last year one of my favorite conventions was Shore Leave. It was a nice mid-sized con that offered a great mix of science fiction and actual science programming, along with interesting celebrity Q&As, and vendors. Shore Leave is a fan-run convention held in Baltimore, Maryland (USA). It is happening July 9-11, 2010 at the Marriott’s Hunt Valley Inn.

The guest list for Shore Leave 32 includes Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica’s Adm. William Adama), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica’s Capt. Kara “Starbuck”), Torri Higginson (Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis’ Dr. Elizabeth Weir), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ Hercules; Andromeda’s Capt. Dylan Hunt), Dominic Keating (Enterprise’s Malcolm Reed), and Catherine Hicks (ST:IV Voyage Home’s Dr. Gillian Taylor). Bill Dow has had to cancel his appearance. There is also an impressive list of authors, scientists, and more.

Pre-registration has closed for Shore Leave 32. However, tickets will be available at the door. That being said, this convention has an attendance cap of 1,500.

At-the-door tickets cost:

  • Weekend: $85
  • Friday Only: $30
  • Saturday Only: $60 (includes Masquerade and Ten-Forward)
  • Saturday Evening Only: $15 – For admission to Masquerade (viewing attendance) and Ten Forward only. To participate in the Masquerade you must have at least a full Saturday membership.
  • Sunday Only: $40

Don’t miss out on this great fan-run convention!

    That Saturday including Masquerade deal is way cheaper than many other cons… not bad. The children pricing/free under 5 rule is pretty considerate also. I’d like to get to this con in the future.
