Damn Fine Con

May 2002

Not having learnt the first time, the people who ran Aliens Stole My Handbag were speaking to a Nice wife and her Man, (Robert and Hazel Newman) who was a big Twin Peaks fan, as we all are and they all decided to run another strange convention, based on an obsession the man had with backwards talking. Demonstrating the right flair they took as their theme a TV programme from ten years ago which everyone had forgotten. They also recruited ex Incon II, Incon V and YofW committee member Jim de Liscard as chairman. Jim, always one to do the right thing, promptly left the country only to return on the morning of the convention. This clever management technique gave birth to an opening ceremony that would offend most of Christendom.
