Thank you. This was the first gig like this I have ever been to (grew up with totally classical music) and it couldn't have been a better introduction. The whole weekend was brilliant and the Fish fans I met were all great!

Being a Fish Fan is unlike being a Fan of other Bands/ Singers!!! The Community and sense of Belonging is incredible. I'm ashamed to say that this was my first Convention and i am kicking myself that i've missed out all these years. I met some great people over the Weekend!!!
I thought that the Lanyards were a good idea!! Is this a new thing or is it the same at every Convention?

I second this, same for me, still wondering how I've missed that during years, we talked about that during the weekend.
Misplaced youth or adulthood ? :? :lol: No regret, Graham, we were there, and it was so good ! And it's better late than never.

I know where you are coming from, an Awesome weekend Over too soon!!! doesn't seem like a week ago we were all just meeting up in the Jug n Jester, Time passes by far too quickly for gigs and for friendships and meeting new friends.

If anything, maybe we should all try and Pre-arrange a meet up at up an coming gig, which is geographically accessible to everyone. Doesn't need to be a "Convention" even if its "unofficial" it would be still be an Awesome weekend or couple of days ? :D Just a Company of friends :D :D

This was my first convention and I was a bit nervous of going alone but I had a wonderful time and met some lovely people. The Company is, indeed good company! thanks so much to everyone I met and great to catch up with the few people I already knew
- oh, and Fish of course! By the way - I think we should have a Geordie branch of the Company! :D
