    Gah.

    I have checked the driving and public transport links, unfortunately it would be easier to go to London and catch a plane to Manchester than go directly from where I am, both of which are cost and time prohibitive (The event ends two hours after the last train back for me) so i will have to sit this one out.

    Have fun Testies!

    Ok but with kerosene the agenda can be significantly slimmed down to maybe 4-5 steps and we'll have to add one in regarding hospitalisation. Make sure Callahad amends it before he has them all laminated.

    Okay, I reckon we could squeeze a few shots of kerosene in before the end of Britizencon and still make it to the hospital on time.. I'll make new agendas and get them laminated again!

    I have a ticket but just realised that it might clash with something else. Fingers crossed that I can make it again this year.

    Guys and gals, if you want me to make some Granite Beer mats or Granite Dinner mats for you I can bring them to Britizencon as I am taking the car this time rather than the train. I can't sell the CIG based logo ones as I did those for my own personal use (holds the beer glass good, and makes for good pictures).

    If you want the test ones as testes you are officially allowed, this is Montoya Boss Approved, and if you have your own logo you want done then let me know as all I need is a black and white vector (svg, ai etc) of your logo and I can do it for you no probs.

    As you can see from the crappy phone photos, the fit, finish and polish on these is "professional quality" in my humble opinion. (it's humble as I do them in my living room, it's lucky I am single...or .........is that why I am single??!!) Also they come with rubber feet fitted so they won't scratch your fancy glass table in your Revel and York hangar.

    Price is £4 per beer coaster and £10 per dinner mat free delivery to Britizencon so get your bulk orders in now as they're friggin heavy and very expensive to post!!!

    ps. when I say bulk I really mean greater than 0 quantity :smile:

    Damn it, and now I am doubly sad that it's looking less and less likely that I can go. Nooooo.

    I'm in Big Sad Bunny mode at the moment.
