See I remember Victoria messaging me via ebay to tell me about it as she'd seen I was buying ponies lol XD
Yep! I found a leaflet about it in an envelope of ponies I'd bought from Victoria. To this day I'm glad I bought from her. Just wish I could remember which ponies they were (I remember there were two, but not which ones) because then I could look at them and think, it's all your fault is this
I was looking for something else when I ran into this thread again, and thought I'd share a finalised update with you all!
There WILL be a history of UKPC, but it won't be a talk.
Due to 1) my eyesight being so awful that I can't read any talk notes too well and 2) my partner telling me that a long old talk filled with dates and names of people he didn't know was, in fact, very boring there is going to be a set of posters around the venue, one poster per year, covering useful info like locations, what happened, our charities and monies raised, and some odd bits and pieces from each convention right from the start up to last year. Depending on their reception, these may be saved and new ones made for each year ongoing, so that every year, people who are new to the con can see its history.
I hope this is an acceptable final outcome for all. I would have loved to do a proper talk and a Q+A session - Archer had been roped in to assist with that - but I'm just having so much trouble with reading atm (my notes for the one talk I am doing are in stupidly large print).
