Just in case it's relevant for name badges, can someone please change my name on the list of attendees? It should be Cluley. Thank you. Sorry to be a pain :)

I suspect you'll have to contact someone directly to be sure, Ray.

If the last couple of years are anything to go by, it won't be an issue, as you'll be issued a standard name-badge & pointed to a marker pen, so you can write your name in yourself. I strongly suggest that members should actually put their name on BOTH sides. Those lanyards & badges have a depressing habit of defaulting to a facing backwards position when worn. In fact, it might me an idea if the registration desk staff tell everyone to do that.

Hi everyone - I'm afraid I won't be able to go to FCon this year - had to cancel my membership.  :'(  Lee has given me a refund but, apparently, the hotel booking is transferable but not refundable. So, if anyone is looking for a single room for the Friday night only there's one going spare. It's worth £75 but I reckon I could do you a deal and say something like £60, paying the rest of it myself (hope I'm not breaking any rules by doing that). Message me here if you're interested.

Good to hear! See you there!

Kaffeeklatsch are informal gatherings over coffee/tea, I believe...

A Kaffeeklatsch is  where an author talks to and advises a limited number of people on their work over coffee. Places are very limited & they have to be booked in advance. They are not free.

Was only able to attend the Saturday but had a great time.
Well organised and a great programme of panels.

This was my first Con and am already looking forward to the next one.

Great effort by the team, both visible as the redcoats and not so visible amongst the mass of attendees.
Even the five minute fresh air break (when the fire alarm went off) was welcome.

I bought books, got some signed, and soaked it all in.
The only down-side is that my reading pile may need scaffolding soon.  ;D

Thank you.

Had a fantastic time at FantasyCon over the weekend. Other than the food issues I thought it was perfect. Many thanks to everyone involved in the organisation!

Another very good Fantasy Con and I would like to echo Carl’s thanks both to those visibly working very hard to make it a success and also all those who worked behind the scenes. Plus the attendees and friends who make the event essential.
The food issue was discussed at the AGM. There were some strong opinions. Fingers crossed for Scarborough to answer everyone’s culinary wishes.
