CouverCon Arrival Mast


 

 

Photos Added: December 1 '99


CouverCon '98 was different from most conventions in that the principal cast were the "main event" on Sunday rather than Saturday. Sunday's schedule included a brunch attended by the cast, producers and guest stars of The Sentinel as well as a Question & Answer session with Richard Burgi, Garett Maggart and Bruce A. Young. The Q&A led into the charity auction with Richard, Garett and Bruce displaying the items being auctioned as well as encouraging the bidders with dulcet tones, sweet blandishment and a healthy dose of joking and goofing around. Once the Q&A and Auction were finished, the guests took a short recess before moving on to the autograph session.

RB at Cowichan door LEFT: Richard stopped to answer a few questions before joining his table at the Charity Brunch which preceded the Q&A and auction. The cast of The Sentinel as well as many of the guest stars at CouverCon were joined at their tables by fans who won a chance to share a meal with the actors. Due to unforseen circumstances, Richard was unable to make the start of the brunch, so Garett Maggart and Anna Galvin joined those at Richard's table until he arrived.

RIGHT: CouverCon '98 drew attendees from around the world as well as across the USA. Due to inflexible airline schedules, several Con goers had to leave before the Sunday events got underway; Pam Schuster and Daniela "Danny" Dohmen , from Germany, were among them. When he learned of their situation, Richard made a point of spending a few minutes with Pam and Danny before they left.

Richard is seen here squeezing a CouverCon foam ball while admiring Danny's hand-painted shirt, which she modeled for him before giving him a similar shirt.
