'Get in the Gate' Contest Ends Today..Maybe

by Paul William Tenny

I came across a post over on the GateWorld forums reminding people that the Scifi Channel's latest "Get in the Gate" contest ends today, Friday August 3rd. Get in the Gate is really just a random drawing they hold once every year where one person will get a walk-on (and as far as I know) non-speaking role, previously on both Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis. Now that SG-1 has ended its run, it's just an Atlantis contest these days.

You get a costume, some camera action, and probably no lines. If you do get any, it won't be much more than "understood" or a good scream while dying. Probably have to pay you SAG minimums otherwise, but it's still a really cool once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'd also like to give a shoutout to the user who made the post I linked to, because this fella linked to a story I wrote yesterday morning about Farscape webisodes and how I think the Stargate bunch are passing up a great opportunity to bring SG-1 back in limited run over the web.

Thanks for the link guy, and make sure you get your ass in the gate.

[Note: The actual contest page says the contest ends on the 7th, which would be Tuesday of next week. That's probably the real date, but get in now and stop wasting time anyway.]
