BristolCon – Outgoing Chair’s Note 2016

November 2nd, 2016 · 1 Comment

Thank you all for another wonderful BristolCon. This has been our eighth year, and it remains one of the most enjoyable and friendly conventions on the circuit. I hope you all had as good a time as I did!

Much gratitude needs to be extended to everyone involved – our three incomparable Guests of Honour were Ken MacLeod, Sarah Pinborough and Fangorn, whose thoughts on AI, monster poo and dirty jokes were some of the (many) highlights of our day. Thanks are also due to everyone who appeared on panels, workshops and in the art room, the tireless committee who helped hold it all together, our hard-working minions, the people who brought cake, our tech team who all dressed up for the occasion, and everybody who attended – you’re all awesome and we wouldn’t have a con without you.

As you might know if you were at the closing ceremony this year, I’m standing down as the Chair of BristolCon after eight wonderful years. At times they have been exhausting and frustrating, but it’s always been fun and I know I will miss it now I’ve gone. Also standing down are Minion King Ade Couper, and Head of Media and Publications Roz Clarke, so it really is all change at Castle Bristolcon.

For now I’ll leave you in the very capable hands of our Vice-Chair and indefatigable Head of Programming, MEG, who I’m sure has a few words for you.
I’ll see you all next year!

Your Unahzaal Vahlok Morokei se BristolCon,

Jo
