Tickets will be more expensive "next year", and payment should probably be due two weeks prior to the event. Just be prepared ;) .

Indeed.

I don't mean to say that I would buy airfare and accommodations for his family myself, I make good money but not that much. :)  But, perhaps we could crowd source the funds and I will would be willing to contribute to that.

Of course dharmakirti, it would be built into the price of the ticket, or something of that nature. Bankrolling the whole thing was doable with just cheap event space in a currancy that was 30% discounted to mine, but I wouldn't be able to do that if we did it in some place other than Canada.

Double indeed.

There is WorldCon Dublin 2019. Though, for me, half the fun of Zaudunyanicon was the intimacy of the weekend.

To be fair making it as easy as possible for Bakker to attend should be one of the primary concerns, adding a couple of thousand of pounds of cost on top of what else would be required might make the event a non starter.

In all seriousness, yes, holding it anywhere other than London Ontario nearly guarantees Bakker won't come, costs aside.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Not to mentioned HOY probably spent as much as we did on the event itself getting there which - given months of advance planning time - probably was comparable to how much someone might have spent coming from Europe.

Thanks, Merchant! It was something like 3000 miles each way! (all in a 3-day weekend...) It was most certainly a slog of slogs, but it was more than worth it. There's nothing else I would have done this for.

Also, the intimate setting is what made the con superb. It had a kind of fanaticism that gets lost at larger events. Professionalism has an implicit soullessness.
To know is to have power over the world. To believe is to have power over men.

That's the right sort of mental :)

Normally only on Westeros can you travel that far so quickly. (if you watch Game of Thrones you'll get it )

I love wee stories like this in our community, once we start going erratic we'll carve the scene into the walls and celebrate it :D

I've never gone abroad, so I haven't partken in exceptionally long flights, but that coast to coast flight is a bitch. Thank you for suffering :) .

The event matched my wildest expectations. But next year we riot if the bar doesn't have limes.
