Wondering which day(s) to attend Blitz 2014? Here is our rough room schedule for the weekend! Due to some unforeseen scheduling changes, minor changes may occur over the next day or two, and we’ll have a much nicer final pamphlet for you to download soon, but the guests on each day will remain the same, helping you decide on your tickets!
Saskatoon Blitz 2014 Rough Room Schedule

- Many of our Special Guests are doing panels on both days!
Stay tuned for the final version!
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Kay Pike will no longer be joining us at Blitz 2014. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. But you can still come join us for other cosplay fun, including panels by Damien Maverick!
Five days until Blitz! All con attendees need to register each year, and many seem to do this on the day of the con – save time and get your form filled out now! Forms can be found here if you are over 18 and here if you are under 16 (**REMEMBER YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN WILL HAVE TO SIGN**). You will not be allowed entry into the con nor get your wristband without it. Each year there are crowds of people at the entrance who did not fill out their forms and they miss out on much of the early action. Don’t be one of those this year! Be a Blitz Champion and have your forms filled out and ready to hand to admissions when you arrive! Also, volunteers will be taking these forms and handing out wristbands to those who are coming to The Roxy on Friday, so if you have one ready for us and want to skip the lines on Saturday please bring them on Friday!
One more guest announcement for today and this one is especially for cosplayers! Saskatoon Blitz welcomes Damien Maverick! Damien Maverick has been a cosplayer since 2007. He loves to explore all of the artistic possibilities within Cosplay. He is part of an improv group called the 404s and has judged around western Canada. Damien will be presenting a couple of cosplay panels at Blitz this year, and you can check out Damien’s Facebook page and Tumblr here!
Here comes another exciting guest announcement! Saskatoon Blitz is pleased to announce James Zintel will appear this year! James is a cartoonist/local strongman urban legend from Saskatoon who is responsible for the creation of a number of web comics including Bear Factoids, Gary & Ted, and SpaceSquatch: Future President of Freedom. He enjoys sandwiches and Nintendo tapes (Anyone remember this one from back in the day?) Only 7 more days ’till Blitz!
