They Came and Shaved Us

October 2003

By their third convention Stef, James and Co were getting the hang of the hotel selection process and booked a hotel in a different country. It was a masterstroke. Never before have so many fans been inconvenienced by a FunCon. Also on the committee was Michael Carroll who had attended Incon 1, squaring the pyramid. Lots of things happened but I was too drunk to remember them. At least I hope the image of DougS and the clothes pegs (not to mention that naughty film projected on his naked chest) was a drink-induced hallucination. Two violet wands in one panel was a record for European conventions at the time. Very noticeable at They Came and Shaved Us were a group of strangely dressed people promoting Convivial.
