Friday Night Reception and Badge Pickup Instructions

April 15, 2015

FRIDAY NIGHT RECEPTION
 
Help us kick off the weekend with our Friday Night Reception, featuring some of our guests in a more relaxed setting.  We're hoping to hear some fantastic Battlestar Galactica history from Richard Hatch (BSG, Axanar) maybe a song from Gary Graham (Alien Nation, Star Trek: Enterprise, Axanar) and some 'in the writing trenches' stories with William Wisher Jr. (Judge Dredd, 13th Warrior, Terminator 2: Judgement Day).
 
Room TBA, 6:30pm-7pm start time. 
 
We also have a Drink & Draw event at the Hyatt Place Hotel (inside the Gallery) starting at 9pm.  You can check out the official event listing here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1573022212952142/
 
Remember you can pick up badges and tickets for Big Wow on FRIDAY, 5pm-9pm in the Convention Center, upstairs in front of Hall 2. We'll have a few surprise cosplay guests hanging out in costume to welcome you!
