I can vouch for the fact that Derby is definitely the place to be - and not just if you're into Doctor Who.

Default Crowdfunding for the Convention

http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/shadoco...aign=marketing


Crowd funding for the Convention is up and running folks! Please get donating via PayPal and we will have a memorable event.

All money will go towards convention expenses, this is not for profit.

I will propose that when we are done any surplus is either returned in proportion to donation or goes towards a 2018 event, and that this is decided by a vote of those funding,

And yes I know it says we are trying to raise 3,500 but that gets us a lot of guests. This can be done for less!

A couple of emails have just popped into my inbox reminding me that I made a small contribution towards the SHADO Con crowdfunding campaign, which I now realise must have finished today. The modest sum pledged was really in lieu of actually being there which - despite an invitation from Steve H. - seems unlikely. (I will try to resist the temptation to say that I'll be up on Moonbase that week!)

It's been a long time since a UK-based dedicated UFO event - although ISOSHADO have had plenty. The enthusiasm for - and popularity of - UFO in places such as Italy and Japan has been remarkable and I'm pleased that someone has had the good sense to set up this event for UK fans who, perhaps, can't afford to travel that far.

They've got some great scoops - Ruric Powell giving what I believe is his FIRST EVER convention appearance and Keith Alexander making what must be his first UK convention appearance since UFOria2. I'm sure it'll be great to see him and Ayshea sitting next to each other for the first time since 1969! Another new guest has just been confirmed and the organisers are confident of getting at least one more. I gather that the new issue of Andersonic should be ready just before the event and will contain a fair amount of UFO-related content. Should be a great day.

Hopefully this will just be the first of many, The Quad is a great venue - having been there many, many times myself - located right in the centre of Derby.

What with this and 'Special Assignment', this is going to be another FAB year for fans of two of Gerry Anderson's most ambitious, grown up and popular shows.

Good luck and a big thumbs up from me.

Its really upsetting that so many guests that made the first Uforia such a fantastic event are no longer with us. But im certain it will still be a great success.
