Haven't forgotten about this evil plan.

I've spent the last few months researching sites. I had to do that anyway for $Other_Event, so it worked out.

On the positive side of things, the site found for $Other_Event would also work for the Discworld Weekend. On the down side of things, it means pushing the event into Fall, because there's no way to get it off the ground before the end of August. I was really hoping for a Spring event, but that's just not going to happen. $Other_Event eats my life in July and there's another big reenactment event at the site in early August. However, if I was able to use this site, it significantly reduces the out of pocket costs, because there are bathrooms and water faucets on site.

Since the first North American DW Con happens on Labour Day Weekend, 2009.. I wonder if it'd be worthwhile to have the Weekend happen that weekend this year, to sort of ramp people up for it. With the expectation that the Weekend would never again be assigned to conflict with the Con. (Because I'll probably be at the Con.)

This would also give me time to really promote the hell out of the idea. I've been quietly talking to people I know to see if they'd be on board, and so far, the response is almost all positive.

So: Tentative dates: Saturday, August 30 through Monday, September 1.

New Discworld Book
Hey I saw that you guys are interested in Terry Pratchett’s books. You should check out this new book by Lawrence Watt-Evans called “The Turtle Moves.” It’s a humours commentary with lots of insight into the Discworld series.
