Introducing our Fan Guest of Honour

I'd like to thank Simon Oxwell for agreeing to be the Fan Guest of Honour.

Simon has been a stalwart of Perth fandom for many years. I have had the pleasure of attending many conventions organised by him, and I have even been on a committee for a convention with him. He is always a pleasure to work with, and is a very hardworking, dedicated member of the local fandom.

Welcome aboard, Simon!

Now With Added Goodness

I have been doing some budget work on Nights Edge, playing with numbers and working out what'd happen if I dropped the national guest, and it looks very interesting.

Costs have gone up a fair amount since last time I ran a con, but not in any way that I didn't expect.

Looks like I'll need 46 full fee paying guests to break even.

Hopefully with a fancy launch video (Nearly complete) and some shiney fliers, I'll be able to get a fair chunk of that membership at Swancon.

(Yes, unlike previous years, I WILL bet taking money at Swancon)
