North American Discworld Convention 2009

Postby Tonyblack » Mon Jul 28, 2008 8:22 am

I guess this is as good a place as anywhere to talk about Discworld events. :)


I have posted this elsewhere but thought it needed a thread of its own. Are you planning on going?

The First North American Discworld Convention (with Terry as guest of honour) is taking place in Phoenix, Arizona on the Labor Day Weekend.

Oh yes... I have to!
I got a tshirt at Worldcon in Denver and my friend Anna who is guest liaision at the Con bought me my membership as a very early birthday present!

The hotel looks wonderful and I have already booked my room because I wanted to be sure to have an adapted room as I hoping my husband Jason will be able to join me there from New Mexico.
I love my computer, all my friends live in it.

I won't be going - I want to spend Christmas with Sharlene in Tucson and a visa waiver will only cover you for 90 days. But I'll be there is spirit and look forward to reports from you all. :D

I wish you and Sharlene could be there Tony, but I completely understand your reasons for passing on it. I've registered and held a room! :D

I think you can buy a supporting membership and get all the materials sent to you. If not, I'd be happy to see if I can pick one up for you.

:D I've been so lucky to have people pick things up for me at events overseas. So, when it gets closer, I'll also try to remember to put up a note here.

LMAO, well, you never know... Hey Trish, we Really need to get working on our inter-continental Trebuchet. We have cows to fling, or even the leavings of cows. :twisted:
