Feegled from Discworld Monthly,
The Lost Con

As you all know (1) we have postponed the Australian Discworld Convention until 8th - 10th April 2022. However, we plan to celebrate the original dates with a virtual event on Saturday 3rd July 2021, tentatively from 6pm to 12am AEDT (Sydney time) . This will be a chance for us all to catch up and have some fun. This will be open to all convention members, attending and supporting.

We are thinking of:

- A fiendish (2) Discworld quiz

- A costume event

- A radio play

- Maybe a couple of special guests for a virtual Klatch

-And perhaps a visit to the Ankh Morpork palace dungeon? It's easy to enter, not so easy to escape (3)

-And a bedtime story to finish

ausdwcon.org

(1) Because we have done our best to let you know - although if you live far away the Pointless Albatross may not have arrived yet.

(2) Fiends not guaranteed - unless they escape from the Dungeon Dimensions again.

(3) As I have said before, "never build a dungeon that you would not be happy to be thrown in yourself."

Although... if you subscribe to our newsletter at https://ausdwcon.org - you can get the info directly from the Patrician's own mouth!

At this stage please take all of the above as a "maybe" - we're just starting to investigate how to run an online event, and what activities will take place, the above is a list of ideas we've had.

That being said, it will be open to all current members who have purchased tickets for the 2022 in-person convention (both supporting and attending) but for those who wish to join us for the Lost Con online in July, you can get a supporting membership for A$40 at https://ausdwcon.org -- and if you're able to join us in Sydney in person in April 2022, upgrading from a supporting membership is easily done at the website as well!

Updates to the above:
- The Lost Con was a great success. We're putting up videos of some of the events we ran on our Youtube channel over the next month (2 up so far): https://www.youtube.com/c/AusdwconOrg
- The early bird price for attending tickets for April 2022 finished yesterday... sorry, if you do wish to attend, it's a little more expensive now.
- However, if you'd like to show your support (and have a holding place which can be upgraded later), Supporting memberships are still available. These will also get you into future virtual events (if we decide to run any more).
As always, details on https://ausdwcon.org
