A sense of achievement

OK, so in the end Con 70 was a great success despite having 11 less members than Con 9. On top of all this we broken even which meant Con 80 came to life almost immediately (http://www.con80.com). So from my perspective the world is good on the convention front.

But that's not what I'm here to celebrate.

As some people will know, I've spent the past couple of years writing my fandom memoirs because quite frankly I don't want to forget my wonderful fandom past as I get older.

Though I have a LOT of details jotted down, the big challenge will be to rewrite it all properly which will take some time. The good news I can now declare I've officially finished Chapter 1: Starforce (no not Skyforce).

Starforce was an amateur theatre group made up of Sci-Fi fans that existed from 1984 to 1988. It was my first real introduction to fandom and holds a lot of good memories for me. So what I've written is a cross between a history of Starforce and my specific memories from it (including photos).

So will I publish this chapter anywhere? I don't know. Being a memoir everyone is mentioned by name, some in a good light some in a not so good light. In the end it's a history I saw through my eyes and I'm really pleased with how it has turned out.

Chapter 2 though will be a dog to do! Why? Because it's about Austrek. Considering I've been actively involved with Austrek (as in regularly attending meetings) for 31 years now - yep I still hang out with them - that's gonna be a LOOONG chapter. Still, the good news is I've already started writing :)
