Finding the Lost Con

Thank you to all our supporters who joined us1 for our "Lost Con" extravaganza. Especially those of you who donned their best Ankh-Morpork togs and entered our virtual Maskerade. And those of you brave enough to enter the Escape Room - we hope you have all escaped by now2. And those of you who stayed up until 5:30am chatting3.

Also, thanks to all our guests who helped make it a great day with many surprises!

Virtual Merchandise still available4

Just before The Lost Con, we launched some special virtual merchandise from our shop - three wonderful cross-stitch designs and three surprising colouring-in sheets, all featuring Keith and Roderick Jones, our intrepid hippo explorers. You can find them here. If you have a convention membership (supporting or attending), you were e-mailed a special, top secret Lost Con discount code5 to purchase these wonderful designs for free! (otherwise they're $2 each). The discount code is valid until the end of July. So don't delay and get these delightful surprises now!6.

Reminder: don't forget April... and last chance for early bird tickets

After all the excitement of the Lost Con, don't forget to mark your calendars for the non-virtual Australian Discworld Convention in Sydney, 8 to 10 April 2022.

And remember that Early Bird tickets are only on sale until 8th August 2021. That's only 3 weeks away. Buy a Supporting Membership now and you will be able to upgrade to full Attending Membership at the Early Bird price. That will save you enough money to buy a traditional Ankh-Morpork "sausage-inna-bun" at the convention. "So meaty it almost barks meows squeals!" 7, 7a

Once again, thank you to all our members for your support to celebrate our Lost Convention. We have never done anything like this before, and your stream of comments and questions contributed so much to the atmosphere of the event.

We miss you all and look forward to seeing you next year, in what we hope will be a much safer world than today's.
