We don't have lanyards, but we do have strap clips. We also have bits of string. If you'd like a lanyard for your badge, can you bring one with you, please? If one of you has a box of 100 lanyards and could bring that, even better...?

Things to Bring to the Con

As well as your badge lanyards and your outfits for the children's literature night on Saturday, you might want to bring:
  • Your sewing, knitting, crocheting or whatever, if you want to come to the stitch-and-bitch on Sunday afternoon
  • Beads or other beading materials, if you want to take part in the beading workshop (but we'll have beads and materials available as well)
  • Clothes that you can exercise in, if you want to take part in our more active programme items
  • White-Tak, if you might want to stick things to walls. We will also have supplies available

And superfluous technology, of course. The venue has free Wifi.

Getting to the con by public transport

Does anyone know what is the best option for getting from Sunningdale or Ascot station to Sunningdale Park?

It looks a little far to walk from Sunningdale station and the bus service is once a month once every 2 hours, so the best option looks a taxi from Ascot.

Any other thoughts? Other than drive, that is.

<plokta.con> Update

Sadly, we've confirmed that Diana Wynne Jones will be unable to attend the convention due to ill health. We hope that she's feeling better soon, and we'll organise a card for her from the convention. Paul Cornell has kindly offered to do an extra panel or two to help us out. As previously stated, we'll give a full membership refund to anyone who no longer wishes to attend the convention.

An updated draft of the programme and other information can be found here, but may still be subject to change.
