Progress Report 3 Released

We're 12 days out from the con - I hope you're all looking forward to it as much as we are :)

Progress Report 3 can be found here and contains the latest programme (which has been tweaked considerably since PR2). It also contains a membership list as of about 10 days ago. If you have bought your membership since then, don't worry, we just haven't picked up your names yet. If your name doesn't appear on this list and you think it should, please contact me on and I will investigate it for you.

Price Increase

Hi all,

Currently, membership to SwanCon 32: Inconceivable! costs $110 for a full membership, and $90 for a concession membership. It's been at this rate since our first price rise way back in April last year. However, we've held the price at it's current level for as long as we can, and from Thursday 15th February the price will go up $10 to $120/$100. If you were one of the many people who bought a supporting membership at last years convention, you've also got until this date to upgrade to a full membership for only $50 more. After this date, your pricing structure will fall in line with the new levels, and it will cost $80 to upgrade to a full membership, or $60 if you are a concession card holder.
