San Diego Comicon 2012 Schedule

It's that time of year again! Comicon is a week away, and I have a full schedule this year. I thought I'd post the events I will be part of so you can join me and we can celebrate our love of all things geek together!

Comicon is starting early this year, and it's starting with a bang! The Nerdist Chris Hardwick with helming a relay race from the Santa Monica pier to the San Diego Convention center to officially open this year's festivities. And he's doing it Star Wars style! The Course of the Force starts Saturday, July 7th, but Chris has already started his journey. I gave him a hand, literally, to help him on his way. Check it out...

Learn more about this exciting charity event here.

Check out more of my blog for the other events I will be part of at this year's Comicon. I'll be updating this list as things are added and shifted, so keep an eye on it. Hope to see you in San Diego!

I am creating a sculpture from all of the trash the Roddenberry dive team pulls from the beaches and ocean in order to help create awareness for the conditions of our sea life. I would really appreciate if you could join us on the clean-up. Every bag of trash collected helps so much!

Comic-Con Dive & Cleanup
“Come Boldly Explore the Underwater Universe at La Jolla Shores!”
WHERE: La Jolla Shores 
DATE: July 12th, 2012 (First Day of Comic-Con

TIME: 5:30am Early Bird Gathering. 7:30am & 9am Dives. 9am-10:45am Beach Cleanup.
NOTE: A Comic-Con Pass is not required to attend this event.
To all Scuba divers, ocean lovers and Comic-Con attendees, come join Rod Roddenberry and the Roddenberry Dive Team for a morning of adventure as we dive La Jolla’s Underwater Ecological Preserve and cleanup the beach. We have joined forces to provide our out-of-town aquatic brethren an unforgettable dive and beach cleanup opportunity. Prizes will be awarded for our above and below water “Trashy Diver” winners. Divers and non-divers are welcome! 
Special effects and art director Greg Aronowitz will be on hand to oversee the cleanup for the “Roddenberry Art Project”, and an Aquarist from the world famous Birch Aquarium at Scrippsto talk about the local marine life. 
Donuts & Coffee: 
For the early birds; a few of us will be arriving at La Jolla Shores (next to “Kellog Park”) around 5:30am to enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean as the sun pours onto the pacific (Sunrise = 5:50 am). Coffee, juice, yogurt, donuts and muffins will be available to the first 50 (approx) people that arrive. We plan on gathering at one of the beach-side fire-pits for a bit of warmth and camaraderie. 
Diving & Discovery: 
Around 7:00/7:30 am Scuba divers will begin suiting up for our adventure to the La Jolla Underwater Canyon. Another group of divers will go out around 9:00am. Once geared-up and ready, we’ll do a surface-swim out about 100 yards to where the depth is approximately 40+ feet. After a final buddy/gear check, we’ll descend to bottom where we’ll continue west to a maximum depth of 100’. From there, each buddy team, while monitoring their depth, time and air, will explore this magnificent underwater realm and gradually work their way east back to the shore. 
Trashy Diver Underwater & Beach Cleanup:
We encourage you to be a "Trashy Diver" and join us for an underwater cleanup and a shore cleanup to keep our beach and ocean healthy and safe. The Beach Cleanup will take place from 9:00am - 10:45am. Comic Con Trashy Diver Awards will be given for trash "Most likely found on the USS Enterprise" and the "Most Amount of Trash" for both the underwater and shore cleanups. 
RDT has commissioned famed special effects and art director Greg Aronowitz to create a life-sized sculpture made from trash collected by RDT members and volunteers at underwater, beach and river cleanup events. Greg will be on hand to coordinate the cleanup. The trash collected will be used in the “Roddenberry Art Project” sculpture.
La Jolla Shores Parking: 
La Jolla Shores has an extremely convenient parking lot located next to the beach and only a few yards from where we’ll be gathering and doing our dives. The cross-streets are “Calle Frescota” & “Camino del Oro”. Click HERE to see a map of the dive site and parking lot.
