Make Eastercon better – fill out a survey!

British fan Caroline Mullan says:

Eastercons have been destination conventions for GUFF delegates and funders of GUFF races since the founding of GUFF. We’d welcome the views of those involved with GUFF/DUFF.

This means all of you, non-UK European and Australian fans! Take a minute or three and tell them what you think!  (While you at it, consider joining Mancunicon, the 2016 Eastercon in Manchester.)

The Future of Eastercon Panel has published a questionnaire, requesting the views of science fiction fans, professionals and conrunners interested in the future of UK Eastercons. The questionnaire is now live on the Eastercon Options website.

The Panel was formed following discussion at a meeting of some 200 members of Dysprosium, the 66th Eastercon, in April 2015, and consists of Steve Davies, Judi Hodgkin, Tim Kirk and Caroline Mullan. We were asked to think about the Future of Eastercons, and report back to the members of Mancunicon, the 67th Eastercon, in 2016. We have now designed and published a questionnaire to obtain opinions about the state of Eastercons and the issues facing those interested in their future.

The questionnaire is a contribution to the wider discussion of the future of Eastercons among British science fiction fans. The initial results will be presented at Novacon 45 in Nottingham in November 2015, and followed up with feedback to the members of Mancunicon, the 67th Eastercon, in Manchester in 2016.

Eastercons have been destination conventions for GUFF delegates and funders of GUFF races since the founding of GUFF. We’d welcome the views of those involved with GUFF/DUFF.

The questionnaire is available for completion on the Eastercon Options website at:
