That's a shame Jan, Terry and Rob they did a skype call for the SADWE con so they will probably do it for the Irish one, the German one they are supposed to be attending I know that Bernard is going it's at the end of the month but it clashes with our Fantasycon in Brighton the same weekend.

Not good news . I'm contemplating giving it a miss now and keeping all my Ankh Morpork Dollars for Birmingham next year

They have Bernard promoted tothe Guest of Honour spot now & I think Terry & Rob will be putting in a virtual appearance via Skype or something at some stage :D

They also finally have the programme nailed - it's HERE which is on the Forum but I think you can view without registering. :wink:

Pip - please try and come! You could do Unseen University Challenge with Archer, Meerkat and me... purty purr-lease :P

Also the guys who created the Guards Guards game will be there, two top fellas. :D

Yeah Meerkat and me will be there for most of the convention (I'm getting there around now this time next week *bounces with excitement* :lol: ) - I think Archer's going too so I'm sure we can cobble you something together that's more or less coherent...

Actually it sounds like we'll be spending a lot of time in the bar so perhaps archer's your best bet all things considered :twisted:

We'd need some unusual veggies too... :twisted:

Gotta share this... :lol: I'm doing Sgt. Jackrum again 1 evening TBA and on the spur of the moment last year I made some silly medals out of some brooches and some ribbon for the outfit, so this year I'm more prepared and I've had time to think about the design more :twisted:

At least if you pay for it now, you'll not have to spend anything else on it until August! :evil:

Haha I wish this time of year all money is spoken for as Xmas is 8 weeks away and I have an 3 year old daughter to spoil but it's my 30th on the 11/1 so hoping the missus will buy me tickets :)
