A repost of Beedoo!'s post on the S8 chatroom today XD:
'Note from Greg: Gathering's coming back as part of Convergence:
Greg's Post (extract): "Next summer, one of my favorite conventions, CONVERGENCE in Minneapolis, will be dedicating their annual convention to the theme of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". And a major part of that theme will be the celebration of the TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF GARGOYLES!!! I'm going to be a guest of the convention, and we've already begun discussions to create a Gargoyles convention within the convention. That's right, folks, the GATHERING OF THE GARGOYLES is back!! There will be a RADIO PLAY! There will be a BLUE MUG!! There will be the ROCKY HORROR GARGOYLES SHOW-ING OF THE TRADITIONAL VIDEOS!! There will be ASK GREG LIVE!! And there will be other Gargoyles related guests to be announced!!!
If you came to any one of the thirteen Gatherings that we held between 1997 and 2009, you know how much fun this can be. You'll want to be there again! If you missed the Gatherings and always wished you had had the opportunity, now is your chance! If you've never heard of the Gathering, but like Gargoyles (or any of the other shows I've done or am doing - including W.I.T.C.H., Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice, Rain of the Ghosts and/or Star Wars Rebels, etc.) then this is an opportunity to talk with me and other like-minded fans about them. (We'll probably have panels on them all!)
And if you're interested in just attending a great comic book and science fiction and fantasy and genre convention, then Gargoyles aside, you just can't beat CONvergence:
The camaraderie of the Gatherings was truly something wonderful, and the closest I've ever come to that outside the Gatherings is CONvergence. I honestly can't think of a better con to merge with, even if it's just for one year. (For starters, the ENTIRE hotel is rented to the convention, and the parties go on all night. No more being told by management that we have to stop talking and/or move to some other location. We can and will continue until we drop!)
Now, let's think. Let's strategize. CONvergence is going on NOW. As I type this. And it will last through the end of this July 4th weekend. Next year's convention is exactly one year away. That's plenty of time to plan, to save up money, make travel and hotel arrangements etc. But mostly, what we've got to do in that year is SPREAD THE WORD!!! I want to see a HUGE GARGOYLE FAN TURNOUT at CONvergence 2014. Let's stun CONvergence, the world and DISNEY by showing them how immensely popular Gargoyles still is. And for sure, I don't want any Gargoyles fan saying, "Gee, I didn't hear about it."
So help me, please. I'm sure there are a lot of old fans out there that long ago stopped reading ASK GREG. Contact them. Contact EVERY Gargoyles fan you know, young and/or old. (Don't assume they must already know.) I want to see all my old friends. And a lot of new ones. So, please. Help me. SPREAD. THE. WORD!!!!!!"'
Yes, it is an exciting time to be a Gargoyles fan. Minnesota is too far to go with a 7 year old, but I'll be there in spirit, as I was for most of the other Gatherings(only attended 2003 and 2004).
I'm thinking about canceling Otakon this year for this.... i've never been and I just became a fan this year.... but there wont really be anything else for me there. and I'm really nervous about going and being such a newbe.... maybe i'll cosplay? anyone putting together a room and need more people? where would i go for that for the con? cause i'll room with people for sure.
I will do all that I can to attend... and I've been dying to make a Gargoyles costume for awhile, soooo this isn't helping XDD (or is it?) Now I have a real reason to!
Expect something damn impressive for the masquerade if I pull it all off
sigh it sucks to be living in NY
to far to go i live on the us Manitoba boarder i wish it could be closer
Minnesota, huh? Never thought I'd ever have a reason to go to Minnesota...alas, it's a bit too far and a bit too expensive to travel just for a Con. Ah well. *le shrug*
alright sweet ive been wanting 2 go and have been trying 2 get the gathering re-started on other sights now for a long time. so this is so awesome!! I don't know if I can go cause I live so far away T.T but count me in 2 spread the word!!!
Too far to go . I wish I could go but money is just too tight. Why couldn't they have something like this in Texas!
*L* Same thought here, but I want it in the Northeast. We can't have it all, I suppose.
I will defently have to go, missed all the others can't mis the one in my home state
Go for it! I've been binge-watching Gargoyles all weekend, and when I mentioned this to my husband, he was like 'it's a year away, we have time to plan'. I guess we'll use this year's Ohio trip as a test run to see how Christie travels. She's never been more than 2 hours from home before.
