Victory


Gareth - Posted on 28 April 2012

News from Zagreb. In the EFSF business meeting this morning the vote was held to see who would get to host the 2014 Eurocon.

We have won that right.

We are extremely heartened by the show of support for the Irish bid (we won 71% of the delegate votes, and 85% of the Non delegate votes), especially as the Romanian bid was very strong. We are certain their national convention in May 2014 will be an excellent event.

Eurocon 2014 will be called ShamroKon, and we are working on the website. Well more correctly we will be working on it when we get back from the party!

So, while there is not much there at the moment, keep an eye on http://www.shamrokon.ie/ for further info.

Please forgive us for not having more in place yet.
