LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Thumbs up Comic Con Scotland 2018 (10-11 Nov. 2018)

Uhm, I just got this mail from the BSGTheme mailling list, thought I would share it (don't think I've seen it posted yet, so sorry if it has).

https://www.comicconventionscotland.co.uk/guests

Unfortunately, my financial situation makes it impossible to attend. :_(

Aww... That's too bad. Yes, Dirk has confirmed to me that he will be attending this convention; I'll be posting up links later today.

And here is the info:



November 10-11, 2018
Comic Con Scotland
Edinburgh International Conference Centre
150 Morrison Street
Edinburgh

EH3 8EE
https://comicconventionscotland.co.uk/
FAQ's and directions:
https://comicconventionscotland.co.uk/faq



This is going to be a fun appearance, since he'll be there with Jack "Bojay" Stauffer and Herb "Boomer" Jefferson, Jr.


This does look like a pretty good convention, so if Dirk's European fans can make the trip, they'll probably have a really good time - and see a few other favorites, too!

Cool!
Sorry if I jumped in a bit too early... was just so happy (and sad at the same time) that thought anyone wanting to attend needed as much heads up as possible... I can see planes and hotels booking up faster for the cheaper options real fast.

No problem, Cassiebsg, I'm happy you did. For the record, I couldn't publicly verify it until I confirmed it with the man himself, and that was difficult since he was out of communication for a few days just at the wrong time...



I get the feeling that this convention is going to be huge in the annals of Battlestar Galactica fandom. Dirk will be there with Herb and Jack (and I wonder if they're pursuing any of the other surviving cast members, I really don't know, but I hope so), so I'm going to encourage as many fans as can make the trip to do so. If nothing else, it ought to be a really fun weekend.

Well, they're marking their pics with 40th anniversary.
Really wish I could attend. Might be the last chance I get.

I’m making plans to go since I had to miss Liverpool earlier this year. Can only attend Saturday and will have to travel home Saturday late afternoon/early evening as we have a show in Portsmouth Sunday afternoon! Still, hopefully I’ll be there and actually get to see Dirk, all be it briefly!

Cassiebsg, I saw this on facebook and shared the page. I'm glad it's true, but I was patiently waiting for John to post it. I guess being swamped at work and waiting for other responses has made me too patient. Lol. I hope everyone that wants to go, gets to. My convention last week was fun. I really thought there would be more conventions celebrating the big 40 for BSG. I guess, like some of us, that is not an easy concept to celebrate.

I'd love to, but, sadly, no. I wish I could, but that's not my lot in life, and he really doesn't need a traveling companion (although he's been known to take his son with him). Besides, my passport expired a year ago...

Hey - a week and a half to go until Comic Con Scotland, and the 40th-anniversary Battlestar Galactica celebration. Wish we could have had one on this side of the Pond...


Anyway, we're all looking forward to the reports from those who are able to attend, and encourage you to send in pictures. So if you go, you'd better tell us everything!!!
