There are fixed points in time, points that not even The Doctor can change. One
of these points is WhoFest 3. Mark your calendars for 22-24 April 2016.
The future is soon: Want a glimpse of things to come without risking a trip
through the time vortex? WhoFest 3 is getting a shiny new
website in a few days and you can check it out right now. No need to change your bookmarks; the
shiny new website will be here soon.
Meet and greet: WhoFest 3 is thrilled that Frazier Hines and Wendy Padbury
(aka Second Doctor companions Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot) will be joining us in Dallas this year. Also appearing at WhoFest 3,
Colin Spaull, one of the elite group of actors with prominent roles in both the new and classic series;
Andrew Cartmel, classic series script editor and New Adventures novelist;
Peter Pixie as master of ceremonies; plus a long list of local and regional program participants.
Get a room: The best way to enjoy all three days of WhoFest 3 is to stay at our convention hotel,
the Westin DFW in Irving, Texas. You'll be steps away from our amazing guests, fabulous programming, and thrill-packed dealers room. You can
book online now or get more
information on our hotel page. Book your rooms early for the best selection and that
great WhoFest rate.
Join us (again): WhoFest 3 is happening 22-24 April 2016. Our
2016 memberships on sale now with special low "early bird" prices.
We're also offering a special low price on our WhoFest 3 t-shirts. (We sold out of shirts at WhoFest 2. Avoid the drama,
secure your shirt, and save some money.) Spread the word!
WhoFest 3 News and Notes
That was fun: Thanks to all the Whovians who came out to see us at WhoFest on Sunday,
October 4, at British Emporium in Grapevine, Texas, for Doctor Who Day. The festivities were a blast
(as usual), we bought way too much cool stuff at British Emporium, and it was great to see all of the folks in
costume, play trivia, and just hang out. Special thanks to all of you who bought your WhoFest 2016 memberships,
vintage t-shirts and posters, plus other fun WhoFest souvenirs. (Still want a vinatge shirt? Your last chance
may be at Dallas Comic Con in late October.)
WhoFest 2 News and Notes
Who cares? We do: WhoFest raised $5,000 for the North Texas
Food Bank, a Dallas nonprofit hunger relief organization that "passionately pursues a hunger-free community", and
you helped. Thanks to all who brought canned and non-persihable food for our food drive, who bid early and often in
our silent and live charity auctions, and all who donated those amazing auction items. Congratulations to the lucky
raffle winner who is taking home their own TARDIS replica.
And now a word from our sponsor: WhoFest thanks the
Organized Rebel Adventurers Club, better known as ORAC, for sponsoring Terry Molloy's
appearance at WhoFest 2. Check them out on the web
or Facebook for meeting times
and more information.
In the news: Thanks to Robert Philpot of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Danny Gallagher of the Dallas Observer, and Britton Peele of the Dallas Morning News for their nice words about WhoFest 2!
