UK Conventions 2009...Details wanted

I'm looking at the UK convention calendar for next year and was wondering if anyone knew when Conpulsion 2009 is taking place in Edinburgh? Their site is 'coming soon' but I kind of need to know dates within the next week to avoid clashes and get it in the old diary.

Also, does anyone know the dates for GaelCon in Ireland or IndieCon 09?

**Isn't Indiecon still recovering from the last one?**

Yes, but I'm impatient and November is a month of special interest for me because of next years proposed Dragonmeet dates :p

I could have a field day quoting all sorts of nonsense from Star Wars/Chinese Philosophy about the value of Patience, but instead I will just say

RARRR the MIGHTY DRAGONMEETTT!

According to the last post on the Conpulsion 2008 LJ community, the next one will be 28th and 29th March. :)

It's been years since I last went to Conpulsion - it was the year that In Nomine finally launched! ;p

Gaelcon is always the Irish October Bank Holiday weekend (last weekend of the month, iirc).

It's also the weekend with the hour shift if that's easier to track down.

Looks like 24-26th of October 2009.

Ah yes. I remember now. Often clashes with Spiele over in Essen in that case :(

You're always welcome at OddConUK, btw. ;-)

www.oddconuk.org.uk

I haven't put up the details for next year yet, but the venue is the same. It'll be on Halloween weekend (30th Oct - 1st Nov, 2009) - details on the website coming soon.

I would advertise the dates for next year's Dragonmeet now so other cons have to work out their own dates.

There are a few clashes already in the current list so hopefully there will be no more.

I am still waiting for some organisers to contact me about their conventions. Some do pass on their details but then fail to inform me when changes occur.

We're hoping to announce news of the 2009 Dragonmeet events at the show itself. By then we should have venues booked and confirmed.

I am putting together something like this too - so thanks! Will send you mine by email ;-)

Now all I have to do is work out which ones it's worth sending a Cammie presence to...

If you need any tips or suggestions you know where I am :)

Nov. 14th, 2008 02:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, I will be talking to you :-) Some things like Travcon are no point attending, but we can send flyers to maybe, others we ought to attend

Expect us at Dragonmeet next year if we don't clash major events again!

The Conpulsion person posted the wrong dates and then corrected them, so I can't remember when it actually is. But I'll see you at Warpcon!

I very much doubt I will be at all of the above shows. I'm just compiling the list for a number of reasons.

Namely, so I know what's out there and when. So any of the events I may be running/involved with don't clash with any already set - or atleast in the same geographic area and then which ones we can attend as Cubicle 7.

I can't see us at Warpcon at present (atleast in 2009) as we have to lot to get organised in the next few months.

If you're including Irish, there's also Itzacon, March 6-8, NVI Galway.

And yes, apparently Conpulsion is 28th-29th. Despite what existing flyers and the website say. :/
