Just a quick reminder for everyone who is attending Dragoncon, that if you want to march in the Saturday morning parade group of the Prydon Academy (a costuming group for Doctor Who
, and The Sarah Jane Adventures
, please join the forum over here: http://www.prydonacademy.com/forum/
The forum is free to all; you do need a login and password, and these are sent out as soon as you sign up. :)
Then find the Dragoncon forum, and post in the various threads.
Parade ribbons will be given out at the pre-parade meet-up. Don't forget that you must wear your Dragoncon badge to march in the parade.
After the parade ends, the group has a photo-shoot (location posted over at the forum). Photographers welcome, and even if you can't or don't want to march in the parade, you're welcome to show up in costume to be part of the photo-shoot. :)
There's also the Brittrack costume panel that a lot of PA members attend. The official D*C schedule isn't up at the time of my writing this post, but I have been told that it will be sometimes Saturday afternoon.
Also, many PA members go out to eat as a group on Saturday evening. :)
Much more info at the PA forum!
