Farewell Ytterbium, welcome Concentric

Ytterbium went well, I got a chance to type on an Enigma machine! Concentric won as an uncontested bid (Tech’s time travelling event needing more development) and will hold Eastercon 71 from 10-13 April 2020 in the Birmingham NEC Hilton Metropole.


Follycon update

Follycon was a great success, but there was no bid for 2020 to vote on because the Manchester bid had to fold. A scratch bid, to hold the event in the Birmingham NEC Metropole (site of Innominate in 2017) as Concentric2020 had formed but felt it was too soon to present a formal bid, so they will be planning a one year bid for Ytterbium next year.

Pat ably provided a very brief FOE update, and got no questions, so what little we are doing must be right!
