The hotel meeting space costs $1200 and we are just trying to pay for the space and any other directly related expensesÖthatís it. At $6 per fan for the entire day, we may not break even. If (and this is a BIG if) there is any money left over, it will go directly toward OFFWORLD 2. Watch for the fund report after the con.

Can I come to OFFWORLD 1 if I am not coming to Dragon*con?
Sure you can! If you are in the area, or can only stay one day, this is the place to be for Stargate fans.

Will there be any stars from the show at OFFWORLD 1?
It would be nice, and we are working on coaxing some to come over for a visit, but donít count on it...but, who knows? 

Can I buy OFFWORLD 1 merchandise?
Merchandise is a tricky thing, especially when you donít have money for an initial cash outlay. This is why we are considering the set-up of a logo-store through CafePress. Stay tuned.

Sure, if there is enough fan interest and if we havenít gone bankrupt from OFFWORLD 1!
