Is anyone going to the Fortean Times Uncon?

38 posts in this topic

Is anyone going to the Fortean Times Unconvention at the Commonwealth Institute, London 6-7th April?

Unfortunately, I can't go now and I am dying to know what the speakers are like this year.

Paul Deveraux is speaking on "The Magic Cattle sheds of Ireland" :se

Doc Shiels is talking about my personally favourite subject "Invocatory Sculpturs of Sea Monsters" (well, I am a Nessy!)

Lionel Fanthorpe is talking about "The World's most Fortean Object"  (What is it?  I'm dying to know!)

And Doug Skinner of the USA is talking about "How Data gets Damned"  (A good one for Gizzie, perhaps?)

amongst others.

(See P13 of this month's FT)

If anyone is going, can they let us know all about it?

Ta! :st

Nessy,

  Yes, in fact, Tommy (I'm sorry, Prince Thomas, heir to the paranormal throne) :D  is going to be going to the convention. A couple of us got together a few weeks ago in chat and pestered him until he finally agreed to make the trip.  :su  He will be our official reporter and has promised to submit a detailed report with numerous pictures to us when the convention is over. In return, we promised not to slap him around and/or ban him from the chat room for the next two months.  :s04

It’s true, they’re making me go. image

*lol* Nessy, you just blew the cover of my surprise special report of the year!  :s04

Yep, I’ll be going on the 6th. May see you there PS!  :s03

I’ll be armed with my silver Olympus Zoom 140, and 150 sheets of W.H.Smiths finest!  :D

I haven’t decided who I want to see yet.  Some of the topics I’m interested in are being covered at the same time.  :-/ but I’m still really looking forward to it.  :s03

You can find out more about it here:

Awesome, so three of us shall be making the journey.  :D

Crow, are you going on the 6th as well? I’ll keep an eye out for everyone.   :D

I would hope that I would recognise you both, but I guess we’ll have to see.  :sk

I would put my description as 6’00, short dirty blonde hair, wearing jeans; but I don’t think it would really help.  :sh

I guess that report has been split 3 ways now.  8)
