Who's behind SMOFcon 29?

SMOFcon 29 will be chaired by Vincent Docherty who has a long history of con-running, including co-chairing Interaction, the 2005 Glasgow Worldcon.

He has assembled a core team so far, and he's ably supported by Dutch fan Paul van Oven, who also identified the hotel and who sits on the committee of the Dutch SF Society who also support idea of the SMOFcon. Margaret Austin and Martin Easterbrook have agreed to handle programme, James Shields is handling the website, Steve Cooper will be the UK agent (and we expect many fans from the UK would attend) and Spike and Janice Gelb are also helping.
