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 Soo close...but with my luck...not going to happen...

I would love to go to the Motor City Comic Con and meet Dirk!!!...I live in Western Maryland and driving the 7-8 hours wouldn't be a problem. I did the 6-7 hours drive to Ocean City, MD for the past 5-7 years; my nieces would go there for dance competitions. But, unfortunately, as my luck usually goes...it's not going to happen ( funds and timing-bad)...and Dirk will most likely never be this close again!!!...This really bites!!!...

To all of you able to attend...and meet Dirk...please get lots of pictures and let those of us misfortunate ones know ALL about it!!!...Best wishes to all of you and have a great time!!!...

And to Dirk...my very sincere, warmest wishes to you and your family, always...

Sincerely,
Christy

Have faith Christy!
For example, the people in Australia and NZ didn't think he'd ever come to their neck of the world and he'll be in both countries this fall!
It depends on what conventions invite him to come and where they are located. It may surprise you that maybe one day Dirk will be in your area!

Default THANKS Tracy!...You're an angel!...

Thank you so very much, I greatly appreciate it!!!...I really needed some inspiration! And you're right, maybe someday he will visit my area...anything is possible!!!...Then again, I did tell a couple of close friends of mine that I'd probably start crying, or pass out, or both, when / if I ever get to meet Dirk! (blushing emoticon goes here) My sincere warmest wishes to you Tracy and also to Dirk and his family, always.


Thanks again,
Keeping the faith,
Christy

I was able to attend & had a wonderful time! I heard both he & Dwight Schultz speak together about their days with the "A-Team," as well as get autographs & photos taken!
It was great to see all the other actors/actresses, but Benedict was my favorite guest by far!
here's a link to one of the photos (not sure if it's ok to post photos here): https://photos14.flickr.com/14031559_4ff04fb769.jpg

I also got to go to the Motor City Comic Con - a series of firsts - first long driving trip (on my own!), first trip to Michigan, first time getting lost in Chicago (will never go near that city again!), and of course, first time meeting Dirk. I was able to chat for a few minutes with him on both Saturday and Sunday and he was ever so nice (although by Sunday his voice was getting a touch hoarse from talking to soooo many people. I wasn't there Friday but Saturday he had the longest line of anyone for autographs, and it looked like it on Sunday, too.). I could have sat and listened to him and Dwight go back and forth for hours! For example, Dwight, (who is having shoulder surgery in the next month or so) told Dirk he was willing the metal ball to him; Dirk's response was then he'd always have a shoulder to lean on...well worth the 12 hour drive!

"Dirk's response was then he'd always have a shoulder to lean on."

**sniff, sniff** That is so sweet! :-) Glad you guys had a good time. Next time I'm definately going to have to go. Unfortunately, some of us around here were under the wether a bit this weekend which is one of the reasons for me not going. Oh well...

Tracy, just keep us informed when he'll be out this way again.:-)

Julie

BTW....anymore pics from anyone? Reports? (the "Grease" theme song is starting to play in my head) "Tell me more, tell me more....." hahaha

Hi, Richard Hatch has mentioned that there is going to be a Convention in Sydney, Australia, the weekend of March 17th 2006 and I was just wondering if there is any word on whether Dirk might be attending?

The depressing part is that the weekend mentioned is the start of the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne to which I have a number of tickets! I'm not sure how to be in two places at once!!!

Default Conventions

[size=7]I've been volunteering at MegaCon in Orlando, for the past 7 years. It's so much fun, it's like a vacation.
So far, I've meet Richard hatch, Noah Hathaway, and Boomer (Herbert Jefferson Jr.).

Lots of fun. It seems since the new BSG came out, there is more interest in the old series.
It would be great if the whole cast of BSG would show up.

Also, a few time the whole cast of Lost In Space showed up. It was nice to see the cast together in one place, maybe that could happen with BSG??????

If you're working the con, could you request him (Dirk)? Or... find out who we have to contact to request him.

Tracy said that the cons have to request his presence, and if his schedule and circumstances permit, he can attend.

I met Herb Jefferson Jr, Noah Hathaway (he signed my toy daggit) and Bill Mumy at the last one I went to two years ago. That was awesome!

Or you can just check this website's events calendar.

As you will notice, the Little Rock convention is no longer listed.
