We are on the verge of making a major announcement on the Galacticon Facebook page tomorrow concerning a very important step forward regarding Galacticon IV.
What I can tell you now, is that it is a reality...we received final confirmation of our new location today...and that was our trigger to bring the news to you.
So please tune in tomorrow for the big news about our event location tomorrow...we will be sharing this over to the BFC Facebook page as well.
Aside from that exciting news, I have a great pleasure in putting forward our Hero of Battlestar Galactica this week.
As you all well know (well, most of you)...all our new members...this is an ongoing "thing"...where we honor a person on a weekly basis who has had an impact upon the BSG universe.
That person can be an actor/actress, director, producer, writer, musician, fan...you name it, it's here.
(and you would be surprised how many actors, directors, and writers qualify for "fan" status....and how many "fans" end up on the production side of things...that's showbiz folks!
Anyway, the person that we honor tonight has over the years played an importnant role, not only in the revival of Battlestar Galactica but more importantly in it's continuation.
This guy...well, what can I say...I have never known anyone to take on the project that he did....took it, ran with it and presented it at Galacticon 3.
You might have guessed it...he built a Cylon Raider from scratch and hauled it from Florida to Houston...battling on the way iwth a TORNADO in Mississippi to get it where it needed to be (btw, I will confirm that the design IS aerodynamic)...the storm was lifting the wings off the ground and it threatened to fly away!
Besides that he founded and continues to operate the Colonial-Cylon Alliance of behalf of costuming fans everywhere.
This weeks Hero is none other than Gene Haggerty!
So Say We All!
