You can sign up now

Hooray, back at the Metropole
I know some hated it, but everything on one level, with big enough function rooms, AND proper aircon?

As long as the staff behave (as promised) it should be grand :)

In fairness a lot of my dislike cetnered around alcoho, that's no longer a case.
There was a secondry degree of a feelign we were unwanted there and just an annoying little convention, but I understand there's been a change in managment.
I'll go with an open mind, assuming i manage to grab tickets that is

I've liked all the places the con has been. The Birmingham place had a nice little forest to walk in and was easy to get to and from. Also the lounge area was pretty useful for gathering. I guess maybe I didn't notice any attitudes in the staff...? Or, alternatively, see ribbon motto. :D

Oook!

This Convention is the highlight of my life, this special time every two years when I can celebrate wonder and weird with folks who actually understand my references.

[Reveal] Spoiler: This bit is me whining:
I hate being a whiner, I really do. But it bugs me that they haven't even announced the DATES for the ticket sales.

I wrote a post on Faceblock a few weeks ago about this, and folks took it as an attack on the Committee - so I'm winjing here instead, because
I know that the Committee is made of volunteers who aren't getting any compensation for their wonderful work and I don't want to offend. I'm just impatient to know that I've secured my place, and I don't think I'm alone in this.

No, you are not alone in this!

Nope, not alone.... I just think it doesn't really help move things along to complain to them. I'm pretty sure they know we all want it very badly. But yeah I know how you feel.

To calm myself I decided I would plan to go to England regardless, and if I don't get a ticket maybe one will free up, and if that doesn't happen I'll just scamper about the countryside and maybe visit some people I want to see before or after - which as worst-case scenario is not too terrible a fate because I never seem to have enough time to go all the places I want to.

This decision at least stilled the panic in me, and I can be patient.

Saw the tweet announcing when memberships would go on sale and was very excited to see that the convention would be back at my beloved Hilton metropole :lol:

Have signed up. Don't know if I'll definitely go but I am thinking about it and I'm glad about that :)

I'm sad to say that my current finances mean that I am unable to make this one. :(
