Exclusive Dragon*Con Fanclub Member Only Competition!
We are delighted to announce a very special competition that could see you meet the cast of The Tribe who will be appearing in Atlanta for DragonCon 2004 !

DragonCon is a huge event that takes place in 2 top Atlanta hotels over a 4 day period, the Labor Day weekend in the USA. The convention is attended by over 20,000 fans of sci fi and fantasy and is a sight you have to see to believe!

Imagine a hotel lobby full of StormTroopers and Orks. Throw in a few kilted pipers with dragons on their shoulders, a couple of green men and several cloaked figures and you’re at the tip of the iceberg.

Now imagine your favourite actors from all sorts of film and TV shows, including Danny James (Zoot), Tori Spence (Salene) and Matt Robinson (Slade). You’re getting warmer!

Add to this mixture all night drumming sessions, masquerade contests, live performances by some amazing bands, autograph sessions, a hall full of merchandise from dragons to Lord of the Rings to War Hammer to anime games and videos and you will have an even better idea of what DragonCon is like.

The convention is in its 18th year and has a loyal band of volunteers that run the event. Security is excellent, fans are just happy to be there and the general atmosphere is electric.

You can be who you want to be at DragonCon and you are bound to meet up with like minded fans who you will keep in touch with for years to come.

Check out the awesome DragonCon website to find out more as well as the 2004 Tribe Track site where you can see all things tribal at the convention.
