LoBsterCon XXI is Over!
Long Live LoBsterCon XXII!
All round, despite the odd hiccup and a last minute panic for the Orgs, LoBsterCon XXI felt like a great success in tough circumstances. Thanks to everyone who helped out, the hotel staff and all who attended. It was a joy to see you all and we hope you enjoyed yourselves.
Here's hoping LoBsterCon XXII is even better, and so to the facts we know for sure:
The dates will be Friday 29th April to Monday 2nd May.
It will take place at the Cumberland again. The survey made plain to us that moving the event in Eastbourne now would be less effective that finding a new resort (be it Bournemouth or elsewhere) at some point in the future.
The Cumberland have offered us expanded gaming space in the Dining Room and the Conservatory.
This gives us all more options of spaces to play than ever and, COVID permitting, could allow more people than ever to attend (without getting uncomfortably overcrowded).
We are exploring options to get a deal for rooms at a nearby hotel thereby also increasing accommodation capacity and options. Our hope is that for LoBsterCon XXII noone who wants to come will miss out (again COVID permitting).
Packages will go on sale in the New Year at a date to be confirmed and Day & Gaming Passes will be an option once again (subject to making our minimum capacity in the hotel).
Wishing you all a very Merry Hogswatch / Holidays / Christmas / Saturnalia / Winter Solstice / Kwanza / Yule / Hanukkah / Xmas et al
Alex & Chris
