    Apart from Transforce no, and that's not running this year unfortunatley, I'll hopefully be off to Botcon so I'll probably miss AA this year.

    I'm sure I remember Sven saying that they would always aim for the first weekend in June.
    But as is the normal thing, some people complained that it was always a bad weekend.

    They've been a bit pre-occupied recently with more important issues so AA hasn't really been discussed, but I'm sure we'll hear something sooner or later.

    AA is currently on hold due to personal issues, but they were hoping to have the convention at some stage later in the year.

    Sucks, but makes sense to take a break for a year if the guys have a lot going on at the moment.

    Agreed. I'dmuch rather Simon & Sven took time out to get personal stuff sorted out than go into AA half heartedly.

    who wants a UK event

    i've sent an email to the event organiser of the bic in bournemouth and a few others to see what it takes to get an event sorted out. cost and things like that. i know a few people that run hotels so i maybe could call in a few favours and get there function rooms hire out for an event. so if anyone thinks its a good idea let me know.

    if you wanna throw some ideas of what you'd like to see there go for it. lets see if we can pull something off!!

    You'll probably find that one of the problems will be finding people to actually sell items at a convention.

    Paul said it was one of the reasons that he postponed this years Transforce.
