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."

Default 2014 Discussion Thread

You know, there's nothing like an interrupted night's sleep to get the brain working long before you want it to...

Anyway, I realized this morning that we really should have a general discussion thread for upcoming events and such, in addition to the individual appearance threads we'll have. So that's what this is for, all the comments and questions and discussion about the more general aspects of Dirk's appearances, rumored appearances, wishful thinking, and all the wouldn't-it-be-neat-if thoughts that are so much fun to bandy back and forth.

So I'll start.

I've not heard anything about appearances in Europe (or anywhere outside North America, in fact), but the year only just started and you know as well as I do that this could change in an instant.

And I want to reiterate that if you want to see Dirk Benedict at a convention near you, don't contact Dirk, contact the event organizer and ask them to invite Dirk. Nobody who appears at a convention just shows up on Friday unannounced! There's planning, scheduling, mapping out where tables go and who sits where when... It's up to the Con organizers to make the first move, so tell them you want Dirk Benedict on the guest list!

So - anybody heard any rumors lately?

I am
Dawg

OK - so there is now a line in the above post that is no longer accurate.

Can you guess which one?

Exclamation Re: 2014 Discussion Thread

Céline! You beat me to it!

(sings) I love Paris in the springtime.......

I've never been to Paris, but the song says I'd love it in the springtime.

And Céline has the right of it. Dirk is now scheduled to appear at next year's "French Twist 4" at Disneyland Paris on April 18-19, 2015.

Yes, that's 2015 - about 14 months from now.

This is their website: https://www.allevents.tk/

I'll have more - and remind you of this - as we get closer.

And don't forget Dirk will be in Pensacola, Florida at Pensacon in 6 days!

I am
Dawg

It's only February and Dirk already has 7 conventions scheduled for 2014 + one appearance for 2015. 2015! That's awesome. Not to mention that he will be visiting Europe twice!

Guys, let us know how those conventions go.

I regret to report that Dirk's appearance at the Phoenix Comic Con in June has been cancelled.

Yes, we are disappointed. Sorry, Phoenix!

But he's going to be in Orlando on Friday! MEGACON!

OK, boys and girls! How about I start with a video? From MegaCon Orlando?

Like 41 minutes of the Battlestar Galactica panel with Dirk, Anne, Herb, and Richard:

Hi, guys!

I'd love to get this place hopping again - so I'll start with a recap of Dirk's upcoming appearances - and an announcement!

He'll be in the UK in August - we know that. Glasgow at Collectormania on August 23-24, and at the Sheffield Film and Comic Con on August 30-31.

He'll be in Portland, Oregon on September 20-21 for the Rose CIty Comic Con. We know that, too.

I can also confirm he's taking a long flight at Halloween to see everyone who lives near the Mediterranean at the Malta Comics & Pop Culture Expo.

But I'll bet you don't know where he's going to be in November. I mean, aside from Montana...


ONE DAY ONLY - November 8, 2014:
Jet City Comic Show

Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center
1500 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402
10am to 5pm
https://www.jetcitycomicshow.com/

I'm very happy to be able to make this announcement - that's two appearances in the Pacific Northwest this year!

So - tell me what you think!

I think Dirk is going to be busy! ;-) This has got to be good for everyone who wants to see him! Personally, being from the UK, I'm glad he'll be gracing our shores again and wil try to see him while he is here! :-)

Dirk is going to be very busy, Elaine....

He'll be in both Glasgow and Sheffield in August.

I wonder - how long would it take for someone to find and comment if I were to post a new appearance for this year and not say anything?

It's not even on their website yet...

So I'll just wait and see.

Had a great time seeing Dirk in Sheffield! He was suffering with a cold so I think appreciated the miso soup I brought him! I'll try and attach some pics!

Oh, God. Dirk is not going to the Paris convention next year. The website (https://www.allevents.tk/) announced today that he has canceled it due to work commitments. Well, at least that's a good thing. The bad part is that I wanted to go there because Malta is already doomed for me thanks to my bad scheduling. Maybe somewhere else next year.

That's a great pic, Elaine. Happy Birthday, by the way. I just saw it on the main page. =)
