    DUBLIN 2019: An Irish Worldcon August 15-19 2019

    Dublin Airport is very proud of being on the preclearance list, although Shannon Airport also has preclearance for private aircraft (we can dream, @Corvinus). I understand that it saves something like two hours on the whole process. There was a bit of a flap a few years back when it looked like they might drop the facility, given that it offers a massive advantage to Irish airports compared to those in Northern Ireland or the rest of the UK. Money magically appeared and I believe they're either in the process of, or have recently completed, expansions to the facilities.

    Just in case anyone American is passing through Omagh in the next few days - EDIT - Any further info on the various kaffeeklatsch sessions? Planning my con schedule and so far it looks like I can get away with not actually needing to get any time off work.

    Hey @Peadar, did they stop doing the odd check on the trains, then?

    Glad I saw this on the board, gives me some time to prepare.

    Oh, I dunno, I guess perhaps something like... no preparation for two years, with the end result being 40 people in a room talking about the weather, before getting torn apart by midges on the coach tour at sunset on Sunday, and spending Monday in A&E. It's that, or someone putting a pin in Bouncy Castle Black.

    Oh, but everyone would look great walking around that part of Belfast in their orange lanyards and badges.

    Orange if you intend to go to NI? INTERESTING CHOICE OF COLOUR.

    Having attended neither Worldcons nor Eurocons (not really a convention person, I suppose), I'm wondering should I attend Worldcon just to give people a familiar face for when they arrive at Eurocon? Failing that, I suppose there's a perk in that it's an opportunity to ask Steve Jackson why his company treats people like unpersons for preferring OGRE to that card game. Hmm.
