Just a random question on Discworld Conventions/Events

Postby SANEAlex » Mon Jul 23, 2018 08:27 pm

I am curious how many organised Discworld events are there that still happening around the world?
The ones I can think of immediately are:-

Wincanton
UK DWCON
The US Convention
The XXXX Convention
The Irish Convention

Are there any others still going?

So that we know what to do when the real giants come!!!!

German, Polish (twice/year), Dutch, South African (one day convention), Czech, ... any more?

What about DW fan groups? The Drummers meet up in London on 1st Monday of every month, reg'lar

. . . except when it gets moved to accommodate a convention, like the August meet which is taking place on July 30th

The Djelibeybi Delegation texts regularly as a group and occasionally has a meal together. Also we do DW panels at Phoenix Comic whatevertheycallitnow together, which necessitates weeks of google hangout calls.
Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.
