A xena convention in New Zealand

Hi there,

I`m searching internationaly for Xena fans who are interested to attend a Xena convention in New Zealand.

Why? Well, as I have visited NZ already some times and have visited about 90%of the film locations, a lot of fans dream of having a convention in Auckland, NZ. Target is 2015 as then the show would be 20 years old and that would be a nice anniversary.

There are some people who are supporting me to arrange a convention in Auckland. Even a Xena tour could be arranged so fans can visite some of the most awsome film places and even swim in some lakes where there has been filmed aswell.

For arranging a convention we minimum need to have 200 attendees.

My question to you : Can you check with your fans if there is some interest to join and attend this convention? Or if you have a link to a forum where you all are online please forward it so I can inform everybody through that.

Many thanks in advance
Kind regards
martine


PS Maybe some of you do remember me from the good old times?

re read as 2015

if u gave ppl good notice (ie: 12 months or more), esp the ones coming further

it sounds like a brilliant idea, and maybe even jess would come, she'd be 15 by then :P

so yes, count me in

Hi Michelle,

Noted your name down. Don`t worry about a pre-notice. If all goes well, I will inform everybody a long time in advance.

Cause I know that everybody needs time to save money for this super journey.

And for us it will take also a long time to get all the ideas together and to contact the right people and our stars.

I was amazed how much of them are based in NZ.

Cross your fingers that we can do it.

Bye
Martine

Maybe interesting to know for everybody.

If we succeed in organising this a lot of what has gained will go to Starship Foundation.

Ain`t that a good idea?

And if you have tips or ideas bring them to me.

Oh Michelle,
Then you definitely should come to NZ.
It is always fun to be amongs Xena fans and meeting the celebrities.
One big family it is.

I just made a list of the celebrities that are based in NZ and have about 8 to 10. And I got the contact info of their agents.

My fellow organisers in NZ are contacting some convention centers.

I think we might say we have done a good start.

Now it is just brainstorming regarding autographs, photo ops and eventual some extra`s.

Let`s hope it all comes together.

Martine

2015? Ya know the Mayans say in 2012 it's all gone go kaput...

i ain't never been to Xena convention either cuz they were too high 'n' mighty to come round Indy, Cincinnati or Louisville (and Louisville is one of the biggest cities in the US). Plus i'm too poor to travel far. If the economic depression don't end soon, i won't be able to go to a xena con even if it was next door. (imagines neighbor girl dressed in leathers as Xena... mmmmMMMmmmm)

i dunno. i hate sounding angry but the more time goes by the less chances are we'll ever get a Xena movie or a stab at another Xena tv show- unless they get their stuff togather. If neither of these has happened by 2015, i don't wanna feed some nostalgia craze. But good luck gettin it together. i love the show and i want more of it, with or without LL & RoC.

Darlings,

I`m thrilled. From the 8 NZ based Xena stars one already confirmed to be happy to be involved!!!! That Xena star was excited and found it a great idea to have a convention in NZ, Auckland. I have to keep that Xena Star updated about the further arrangements. No I don`t tell you the name yet.

Convention hall is already ok. Looks perfect! Theatre set and all are available. And the hotel is within the Convention hall.

We are planning 2 days of convention and 1 day Xena film Locations. Target : indeed 2015.

We need 200 persons. So start saving money darlings.
