Upcoming Events For Me

Upcoming EventDate(s)Comments
Trips to Six Flags Over Georgia and Whitewater Park Throughout 2017, in-season (March-December) I have a Combo Gold season pass for all Six Flags parks, as well as free parking and a season dining pass, so this is a good way to have some fun, get out of the house and get some exercise, and get wet during the long, hot summer!
If you're interested in coming along or meeting up, whether on your own pass or as a guest of mine (there are some freebie days and discounts available), contact me!
"Regular, cheap" cruise to the Western Caribbean October, 2017 Less than $100/day including all fees and taxes and on Carnival's newest ship! Can't wait! Should be awesome!
Fourth annual trip to Atlantis, Paradise Island Bahamas (staying at nearby Comfort Suites) mid-November, 2017 The room at the Comfort Suites across from the Atlantis resort's Coral Towers entrance actually would include two guests, so if you're interested in meeting up there and staying in the room, contact me for the exact dates via email or Facebook. The airfare would be the biggest expense here, but if you can find a cheap option (maybe Southwest) or cash in miles or points....
Guests at the Comfort Suites enjoy full access to all of Atlantis and its nifty Aquaventure Water Park and huge saltwater aquarium. The only exceptions are the Cove and Reef Towers' luxury facilities, the Mandala Spa, and Dolphin Cay.
ChattaCon, in Chattanooga TN January 2018 An annual tradition for me now since c. 1990. Oriented toward traditional literary (written-word) SF and fantasy, it's a great SF convention of the old school, with an excellent consuite, art show, etc. After the madding crowds at DragonCon, it's nice to go to something a lot smaller, friendlier and more intimate.
70,000 Tons of Metal cruise 2018, aboard Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas Early February, 2018 After four years of watching, waiting and wishing, I went on this cruise in Jan. 2015....and it was pretty awesome so I went again in 2016 and 2017, and now I'm going again!
60 bands, 4 stages, 5 days and 4 nights with a stop at one of my favorite ports in the world, Grand Turk, on one of the larger cruise ships afloat. It's expensive -- compared to a "regular" cruise, anyway -- but it's a lot of fun! Frankly, considering the number of bands and the logistics involved, the price isn't actually that outrageous, either.
AnachroCon February 2018 I'm now a director at this convention (in charge of the fan and band tables), which is geared toward all things steampunk, including alternate history, Victorian aesthetics, etc. Another con smaller than DragonCon, and that's fine by me.
Georgia Renaissance Festival, Fairburn GA (plus drum-circle and gathering after the end of each week's Faire) mid-April through early June Once again this year I'm "working" at the drum booth (Spice Traders Music), primarily on Sundays after noon. It's located at the foot of the hill near the middle of the Faire -- right across the creek from my old, sadly departed employer, Starfire Swords. Generally, you can listen for the sound of our drums. :)
I'll also be participating in the traditional drum-circle and gathering at La Fiesta restaurant in Union City on Sunday nights (or Monday night after Memorial Day) after Faire.
