Hello!

My name is Will and I'm a clinical pharmacist in the Athens, GA area. My first DC was last year and I had a blast. I really enjoy the people watching, all of the events, and this year I will actually be cosplaying. I am a huge GoT/LoTR/WoT enthusiast and scifi/fantasy in general, a big gamer and lover of cinema, and obviously pretty big into science. Also, whiskey/scotch is my jam! Good to be here!

Hi! I'm glad you found us! We have lots of people on here, both new and veteran who have all sorts of advice. As far as my suggestion, make sure you go to atleast one "real panel".

Also, the newbie walking tours are a great resource!

Hi, my name is Chris and I have been attending DC since 2005.  I enjoy everything about DC, the panels, people watching, meeting and talking to others, vendor hall (when I can actually make it into the vendor hall).  It has become something I look forward to every year.

I love the vendor hall too - hopefully with the new location it'll make it easier to deal with... lol

Hi I'm polar_lanewalker and I'm very new to the forum but not Dragoncon :) this is my 6th dragoncon and I still absolutely love it. I'm trying to branch out this year and meet people beyond my friend group.

Already made a few posts without noticing this thread!

Hey, name's Andrew. Been coming to Dragon Con for several years now, but this is the first time I've ever decided to look into these forums. I'm usually pretty busy, but thought I'd make some time. If you spot a long-haired dude with headphones on shambling around the convention area, there's about a 1 in 150 chance that that's me. I'm staying in the Hyatt, but my range often includes the Marriott and the Sheraton where I can be observed complaining about having to go outdoors to see Trek stuff. I can also occasionally be spotted around the Westin for fan panels and the Hilton for science stuff/Mai Tais.

Hi Senpai's,

I have been attending Dragon Con for the past 3 years, however, this is my first time in these forums. Hope to make new friends.

I'm more of a Voidhawk-chan than a senpai, but welcome to DCF!  Come to the meet and greet if you want to meet some DCF ppl before DC gets into full swing:  http://dragonconforums.org/general-discussion/official-2015-meet-and-greet!/

Howdy, I'm Shayna.  I'm not new to the con.  Been going since 2006 and Eternal member since 2012.  I'm doing my first cosplay this year.

PS the captchas are almost impossible to read.  If I have to do this for every post, I won't be posting much.

Hello all!

This is going to be my first time at Dragon Con and also going to be my first time going to a con by myself!
Hoping to make some friends and people to hang out with during the con.  ^^

Hello!

I'm Cassandrab, I frequent reddit/FB DC groups often - and have been linked here more than once. Figured it was a good time to join!

2015 will be my fourth Dragon Con, and I am just as excited this year as I was my first.
