That was Satellite 1, that was.

As far as I could see, people were having a good time, enjoying the panels, talks and games. (Anyone who was not hid it well.) They were certainly enjoying the real ale, which was drunk by the closing ceremony. Thanks to everyone who came, to everyone who took part in the programme, helped out with gophering and stewarding, and in particular to Ken MacLeod, who was a superb Guest of Honour.

No plan survives contact with the enemy, of course, and there were things which did not go to plan. The most serious of these was that at 07:30 we received the news that At The Sign Of The Dragon would not be with us since Marion van der Voort had been taken to hospital. We still have no more information about how serious this is, but we send our best wishes to her and Richard at this time.

Initial indications are that the con did better than break even. That's not, for us, the major indicator of whether or not it was a success, but it is A Good Thing. What really matters was whether or not it was a good day with interesting and enjoyable programme items. We hope it was.

Thanks again to everyone who made the day what it was.

It's nice when I can look back on a convention and say "that was worth the flight and faffing around with trains". And Satellite 1 certainly was worth it. (Plus an opportunity to leg it up to Scotland is always welcome!) Well done to everyone who ran it! :D
