Wasteland II: Age of Iron
is over...

I had a lot of fun. So did my fambily.
Now for some thank yous.
My Guests: Tom, Nick and Alisa. You are the backbone of the con. You were all great!
The Hotel: Big BIG rooms and a positive attitude of "Make it work, make people happy"
People who promoted me: White Dwarf and Fantastic Planet and Sin and everyone else!
The people who turned up: Yes, you!
People who worked the front desk: Sheldon and Doug get a special shout out as do the Triffitt boys.
People who helped in other ways. Tehani for the loan of the Projector, for instance. Everyone who whisked my children away for an hour. I am sure I am forgetting someone.

I sort of broke even. What more could I ask for?

Our National Guest of Honour is already squirreled away in the hotel, and in less than an hour I head out to the hotel myself.

It's gonna be HUGE!

Three Days to Go!
Why yes, I am a bit hyped. Thankfully through a modern organisational system known as "A whiteboard covered in scribble" I am happy with the current state of the con. Why yes I am. Indeedily.

I may have even had enough time to sneak off and organise a treat for the opening ceremony...

Massively Updated Programme
The Programme went through a massive cull overnight and is looking leaner and meaner (Look here for evidence)

There are still some slots for panellists, but things are looking mighty fine.

However, I am only human! If you volunteered for a panel and you have NOT been contacted in the last 24 hours, there has been a problem! Please e-mail me cheshirenoir AT gmail DOT com and I will rectify immediately.

We have less than a fortnight before we go live. Isn't this exciting?

Won't Somebody Think of the Panels???
The programme has once again been updated. It now has many holes where panels used to be and a list at the bottom of panels with no panellists. If you have ever considered volunteering for a panel, go have a look! You can even "roll your own" if you prefer. If you do decide to suggest your own panel, I would prefer panel suggestions with at least two panellists already suggested.
Any panels without owners will be taken and disposed of. Not in a pleasant way either.
