It’s that time of year again: registration for BiCon 2009 is now open! Claire and I will be going, as usual (and, in accordance with the tradition, as this’ll be our third year on the trot, it’ll become tradition that we go), and you’re welcome to come, too! Yes, you!
Rather than re-hash an old post, I’ll just link to some of the things I’ve said before about how great it is, and why you should come along. If you’re interested, leave a comment or get in touch with me privately and I’ll make sure you get to come along (or, of course, you could just turn up, but this way you’re more likely to get to share a flat with us for the weekend).
Prices this year start at £97 – for three nights regular accomodation plus event passes for Thursday afternoon, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning plus the inevitable post-conference faffing – and it’s 20th-23rd August 2009, at the University of Worcester, so nice and central and not too much of a trek whether you’re hitching a ride with us from Aberystwyth or making your own way there.
Here’s me telling you why you should come along, if you’re not convinced:
- My experience of BiCon 2007: first night, first day, the bicon ball, the midnight picnic, aftermath
- Last year, I put up a blog post to ask if you wanted to come to BiCon 2008, which talked a little about how fabulous it was in 2007
- My experience of BiCon 2008: fun and games, the remainder of BiCon (including the infamous “lion pit”)
- A very small selection of photos from BiCon 2008 are nestled into two other blog posts: photos from the weekend, and toilets without urinals
If you’re not persuaded to come, but you think you’d like to be, get in touch!
