SADWE 2011

Postby chrisboote » Mon Jun 27, 2011 9:24 am

Right, I am going to try to organise the first ever South African Discworld Event - SADWE 2011

Current suggested location and date is Cape Town, Saturday 10th September, probably early evening

We're open to suggestions for a hotel - one that has a good bar and sells food

I'll run a Discworld themed quiz, for which there will be prizes, and I'm always happy to talk about anything DW related

I will ask Rob and Terry if they can talk to us on Skype as well, and see if we can arrange a reading from Snuff, Terry's next book

Terry does want to visit South Africa, so this would also be a good time to talk about a full South African Convention - where and when to hold it, put together a preliminary committee, that sort of thing

So, please can you all publicise this to any South Africans you know (I don't think there are any on this board) and feel free to post this on any other DW or TP boards out there

Deja vu? :shock:

I'd rather have it posted twice and be thought of as foolish, than it not be posted at all and definitely BE foolish 8-)
