Registration for IndyLander has been open for a week now, and we've been getting questions. I'll answer a few of them now.

Yes, we're processing registration, and we've not yet come across any problems.

No, we're NOT required to tell anyone about this process.

We are NOT releasing numbers or names of our con-goers. And we are NOT required to let the public know this information.

Yes, we're allowed to keep people out. It's for safety of not only our guests, but our convention attendees.

Yes, we're going to check Picture Identification when you check in. That information is part of the information available at our website,, under "Information & FAQ".

That's all we've come across, and we ARE standing by our policy of not sharing information with the public until WE think you need to know... not what or when you need to know.

Yes that's right it's not your imagination.
We were given the go ahead to announce this exciting news early this morning.

So, here it is. Pending any other professional commitments, The Indylander 2008 Staff are pleased to announce that Peter Wingfield will be attending Indylander.

Yes, the 5000 year old Immortal himself. Peter has graciously accepted our invitation to attend Indylander.

Many Highlander fans know Peter as Methos. But he has also been in films such as X-Men 2 and Catwoman. He is also known as Tanith from Stargate SG1, Emerson on 24, Marcus Becker on Smallville, Dr. Daniel Clifford on Holby City, and many many others.

Peter will be joining the already incredible line up of other guests we have coming to Indylander. It will be great to have him in attendance as well.

He will not be the last guest we announce either (we hope). So stay tuned you might just find a surprise ahead.

You got it right. 2 more guests are now confirmred and will be coming to Indylander.

We the Indylander Staff decided to give you a little present. Rather than waiting a week to announce the second of the two. We just decided to go ahead and do it. I am sure you'll be happy.

So without further ado. We are pleased to announce that both Elizabeth Gracen and David Abramowitz are both confirmed and will be coming to Indylander! This is pending any professional commitments on both accounts.

We are pleased to have them both in attendance.

Elizabeth has also graciously offered to hold her Fan Class for us too. We will be working out the details of this soon. The class will be limited to how ever many we can fit safely in the room we have arranged. It is definitely something not to miss.

Also on another note, registration should begin in the next week or so. We had to work out some fine details with what all we needed. I am still trying to work on getting a better hotel room rate or block too.

But I will do my best to keep you updated on everything. Pending I don't lose my mind first. LOL

Indylander 2008 (Original Announcement) [Mar. 12th, 2008|06:04 pm]

[Current Location |IndyLander Home]

Welcome to IndyLander 2008

From all over the world we came.
Moving silently to surpass the cornfields
Living to cross Interstate 465
Struggling to get to the downtown area.
When the few who came.
Enjoyed themselves to the last.
No one ever expected this.
Till now...

Indylander 2008

A Highlander convention
in Indianapolis, Indiana

Welcome to our website for the first ever Highlander convention held in the Midwest. Highlander conventions have been held all over the world. From Vancouver, To England, To Australia. A few have been held on the west coast of the U.S. in Los Angeles and it has been over 10 years since there was a convention held on the East coast of the U.S.

Many can remember the conventions that were held in Denver too that started this craze. But there was never one held in the Midwest U.S. So this is a bit of a compromise. What started as just a simple joke of where people would like to have a convention has actually turned out to be a reality now. After much talk and a lot of planning. We are pleased to announce and hold this convention in the Midwest.

Had you asked the organizer 10 years ago if they ever thought they would be doing this. They would have thought you were crazy! But the fun times they have had throughout the years, and the incredible friendships they have made with many many people from all over the world has been worth it.

This now is a way to give back a bit and to help others create memories they can enjoy themselves for many many years. It may even bring new friends together. Or it could even bring back old ones who have lost touch.

We know other groups have held them for years. We are not trying to take anything away from them. We heard they were not going to hold one for a while and were tired. So while they take a chance to recharge themselves this seemed like the perfect opportunity to test the waters for something new. And with all this in mind and a lot less hair on our heads from planning. We proudly duck any swords and are pleased to bring you Indylander!!

- The Indylander Staff.

And now more about Indylander

It is my great honor and pleasure that I announce this...

You are probably wondering oh now what is he doing. Heh... Well you know me, so I'll just get to the point.

I've been working on putting this together for several weeks now with several friends and colleagues involved. And here it is...

Indylander 2008

A Highlander convention held in the Midwest US.
Indianapolis, Indiana
Oct 3rd-5th 2008.

Registration is currently not open yet as we will open it later this week (Hopefully). It will be limited to 300 people though. We wanted to get this announced as soon as possible. So that everyone would know, get excited more, and could start making their plans for it.

We will be having several celebrity guests in attendance too (Pending any professional commitments as usual). We have worked out some deals and will be working out more to make this one hell of a HL (HighLander) convention.

We are not trying to take anything away from HLWW (HighLander World-Wide). They have held some great conventions. We know they were a little tired from having cons and needed a break. This was talked about for a long time before. So a few others and me have worked on this, stressed on it, and finally put this all together for everyone now.

Several of the invited guest are ones that you all enjoy seeing, even a couple who haven't been to one in a while. We will be announcing each of them as things are finalized contract wise. With me knowing I can only say wow.

But the first invited guest that we can already announce is that of Mr. F Braun McAsh.

He has generously agreed to attend our event. He has also offered to teach one of his knife classes too. This will be a limited class, which cost a little extra so keep that in mind. Which we'll have more information on this later.

We know several are attending jumpcons, other conventions and gatherings for some. You'll have to decide now if you want to come to this too. LOL But this is an all Highlander convention and event. Something we know several have wanted and something that has never been done in the Midwest. We hope you'll enjoy it all.

Indylander 2008.
