Thanks guys! I would love to be able to make it. I just don't know if I should go ahead and buy the ticket, or wait a bit. Thanks for the suggestion Dug! I didn't really find a better deal on that site, but I was able to sign up for alerts. Maybe something good will pop up. I understand that I can catch the train from the airport to the city center?

I should think so, not sure whether to fly down or catch the train, it will be great to see you again. :D

We haven't even looked into flights (from Australia) just yet... that's a job for the new year. We're likely to fly into London, purely as it's the biggest hub, and then to drive/train around the UK visiting friends and relatives before and/or after the Con.

Also posted on the Broken Drum
[/list]quote="Who's Wee Dug"]This all started because of our Stateside members wanted someway of recognising forum member's.
So I asked if Chris would post this on the Transworld forum, but was a waiting on a reply from concom.
[quoted in the="chrisboote"]
Hi All Got a reply from concom
Simon has suggested rolling it into a Hedgehog party
What do you people think?
I can make up forum name/avatar badges for anyone who wants one, so we can flaunt our digital selves?
And yes, I could do that for the Transworld forum peeps as well. :D :mrgreen]Also posted on the Broken Drum

If flying into London or Manchester itself aren't looking good you could also look at flying to Birmingham. They do quite a lot of long haul flights, and there's a train on the hour during the day from the airport to Manchester (takes about 2 hours on the train).

I'm really looking forward to the Con :dance: 216 days to go!

I'm actually UK based these days so Shamrokon is more of a trek than Manchester. Haven't made up my mind yet, but I don't think I can afford it so soon after DWCon.

This little snippet from Snowgum films:
You’ll also note that our completion date is looking to be around late July. Whether we hit that date or not, we’d like to have an in-progress backers only screening sometime in August. If we do hit that date with a completed film - we’d still like to have that screening anyway.

So if anyone knows where we could find… oh, I don’t know… a large gathering of Discworld fans early August, let us know. We’d absolutely be up for some continent hopping.
:D

:dance: But wait - they've been flirtatiously touting this to premiere at several cons already haven't they! :lol: No matter their podcasts/webcam interviews are always interesting and hilarious :twisted:
