Just to add to the comments here. This was my first Mythcon and I had an amazing time. The papers and participants were brilliant and gave me much to think (and in the case of Doug Anderson) read about. The events like the Not Ready for Mythcon Players and fun music numbers were excellent.
Well done to all for arranging and next year I must try my hand at Golfimbul!
I look forward to coming over the pond for many more Mythcon conferences! Le Hannon to all!

The Saline Fiddlers boggled indeed. Jo and I and Eric Rauscher were in the front row under the theory that someone has to be there and it might as well be us.
The Mark O’Connor tunes were wonderful; the old war locomotive “Orange Blossom Special” fresh as a morning rose, and the taller Fender bassist’s interjection of Paul McCartney’s “Blackbird” curled beards and assorted toes.
Again, all praise to the organizers of this fine Michigan Mythcon.
The most astonishing thing for some of us was the quality of the Saline Fiddlers, who were the musical entertainment on Saturday evening:
Some of us went to see it expecting nothing of interest, since it was just a high school group. They were excellent.

That was a SWELL Mythcon! My thanks and congratulations to all who helped make it what it was -- organizers, guests, presenters, audiences, conversationers, Golfimbowlers, cinnamon-bread bakers, chocolate procurers, ice cream servers, etc. etc. etc.
