i ran a con!

oh my god it's over!

it's mostly over. we had an issue with the trophies so i still have to post them out when they get here. plus, i should send out one last newsletter - thank everyone & let people know about the open committee meeting for next year's con. oh, and i gotta add some resources to the website!

i've been getting messages from various people telling me what a great time they had, but to be honest all i can really think about is the stuff that got messed up. i now have an extensive & incredibly comprehensive list of all the stuff that one should really have had for the registration desk, which is to say all the many things i forgot to bring.

i was really worried about the venue ending up too small - which it was! and the bar closing too early - which it did! but i guess in the scheme of things these are not such bad things.

I didn't end up getting to any panels that i wasn't on but i did get to meet a bunch of new people, which is cool, and hang out with some people i knew a little but hadn't really made friends with. also i bought all the books.

continuum 9 is on the way, we have guests and a chair and even flyers; continuum 10 exists in the vaguest of ways and yet has been selected as the natcon! somehow i am now the natcon standing committee representative for two separate conventions - 2012 and 2014. which means i am on the committee until the business meeting of 2015 at the very least. i should say i volunteered for this: i have things i want to do.

i have a real conreport, i guess, with how/why natcon worked, and notes towards more underconstruction reports, but first i have a lot of books to read and food to eat.

It was a good con. Plus, you looked like you were enjoying it, which is a pretty big achievement for a con chair!

The trophies will need to be glued. I recommend Elmers Instant Krazy Glue. It's available from Officeworks and is one of the few on the market that claims to be able to glue ABS plastic (ie Lego). Use sparingly. Let me know if you have trouble getting hold of it.
