I am, I'm wondering if any other forum folk will be there.

Me!

But I figured you knew that already.

Pat, Jan & Chris will also be there...

Don't know about anyone else.

If everything has gone to plan, Rob & Sandra are now on their way (I think. Their flight might be 4am tomorrow rather than today) and I know Stephen Briggs is going to be there too.

I was going to say it's a bit early to be packing, but with your Easter trip, that does make sense.

I need to finish off my costume this week...

I basically only have about 4 days to pack since I'm leaving either the Monday and taking 2 days to drive up or Tuesday (I'm playing tourist in Sydney before the con since I've never been). Since I have not actually put the costume on yet (I think I have all the bits now :S), let alone work out anything else I need, life will be interesting!

Photos from earlier years can be found here: http://ausdwcon.org/about/previous-conventions/

There will be a similar group/slideshow of pictures from NAV after the event, it's all set up, just not public yet.

Well, if you go far enough back, criminal charges are what lead to there being an Australian DW Con at all, so it only seemed fair to return the favour ;)
But the story about the wombat. the Duchess of Grand Fenwick, and the jar of Bovril is completely* untrue

* almost

Pictures will be appearing here: http://ausdwcon.org/convention/photos-f ... onvention/

(And the story is only mostly untrue because Bovril isn't easy to get. Bonox is still available, to my understanding although I've never touched the stuff...)

Having watched Border Security I can confirm Sapient Pearwood will not get through.
