The Official Woid On Da Street, See?


Although I did already let the cat out of the bag, the official announcement went out today regarding my Guest of Honor status at the next Confuzzled.

To wit:

Psst, you… yes you, listen up, we’re only gonna say it once…

Our mad foray into the world of science is over and we are already hard at work preparing for next year, with an offer we’re sure you cannot refuse…

Before we let you know what we’ve planned for 2011, we’re proud to announce that we have finished counting the money which you all have generously raised for charity. Our grand total (including all sales of charity items in the Dealers Den) came to an overwhelming £6200!

=== Our Theme ===

The Roaring Twenties – look sharp in your pinstripe suit, don your fedora and we’ll meet down at the Speakeasy to explore all the finest the 1920s criminal underworld has to offer.

=== Our Guest of Honor ===

We’ve invited our esteemed friend from Northern Virginia over for this year’s shindig: John “The Gneech” Robey. Don’t be fooled by his daytime job as web designer… during the night he’s one of us, and his weapon of choice is a pencil. He’s the creator of furry propaganda like NeverNever and The Suburban Jungle. He’s also done quite a few “jobs” for Mage: The Ascension, Street Fighter: The Storytelling Game and World of Indiana Jones. Did that catch your interest? If so, head over to http://www.gneech.com to find out more about his career in the comic underworld.

=== When’s it going down? ===

We’ve made preliminary reservations with the Britannia Country House Hotel and we’ll be ready to host you all again on the 6th to the 9th of May 2011, so long as the Don doesn’t change his mind. Be aware that this date may change, so please keep your ear to the tracks for updates.

Start extorting those pennies, keep your violin case nearby and keep a watch on all the usual outlets for further announcements from The Family. Expect communiqués about prices and when you’ll be able to register soon.

Squeal anything about this to the Feds, and you’ll be sleeping with the fishes, capiche?

So, now we have dates! Unless and until they change, anyhow. More bulletins as events warrant.

Ooh, Roaring Twenties, eh? To me that immediately says 'WWI pilot-turned-barnstormer'.

You, OTOH, will, I imagine, seize the opportunity to dress as Bertie Wooster :)

Gneech has always been famous, just less so before now :)

Huskyteer, I'll bring my Fokker Tri-D , you bring the Sopwith Camel :)

And I know that Gneech will be visiting a lot of haberdasheries and fine men's clothing stores, yes?

Who better for a Roaring Twenties-themed con than someone who already has his own fedora? ;)

First off, "The Roaring Twenties" sounds like an excellent theme. That'll sure bring back memories. (NO, I'm not that old.) XD

But MAJOR CONGRATULATIONS, Gneech! ^^
