Realistically, Chris, is there anyone apart from you, Pat and Jan who goes to all of the odd-numbered year conventions? Even Rob doesn't get to all of them...

Hmmm
Fair point, I suppose

:lol: Well, hopefully, Rob and the lovely people at the shop have been coordinated with pre-announcement and are able to make this one. Love that you, Pat and Jan are able to make all of these and share pictures and stories with us. How different are all of the events? I've only been to the U.S. ones and once to the U.K. con. They felt different, but the same, if that makes sense! :lol:

They are all different -albeit with the same 'people who have something in common turning up and having fun' theme - so find some way to take the year off in 2017 and come to all of 'em :)

I'd better go pick up a lottery ticket then! :D I wish. I would absolutely love to go to all of them. Or really, go to anything where I could see all of you more often.

Given that odd-numbered years are already packed (Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Australia) would it now be a good idea to take advantage of the hiatus and switch to 2018/2020/2022... etc?

Oh yes please :D It would be fantastic not to have to choose between the Irish and the North American Cons.

Given that the Dutch DWCon is now finalised - 1st-2nd July 2017 - please pretty please pretty pretty please with grated wahoonie on top can the NADWCon not be the same weekend :)
(The weekend after or before would be fab though :D )

I hope not too, that's my daughter's birthday.

***Edit*** I contacted Emily and she said they are taking the dates of other DW cons into account, so hopefully it won't overlap. :D
Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.

Shame if Jan and I missed the free firework show the Colonials put on each year for our wedding anniversary. The Baltimore Convention opened on our 100,000th[1]!

[1] I count our anniversaries in binary. Because she's the 1 for me....
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"
