      ManorCon.
      ---------

      ManorCon is the biggest Amateur Games Convention in the UK, featuring
      tournaments in Diplomacy, Settlers, 18xx, Acquire, Outpost, Croquet, etc.
      Held every year at the University of Birmingham, this year it runs from
      16th to 19th July 2002.

      Booking details can be found on the ManorCon website,
      www.diplom.org/manorcon . One note, the deadline for reduced registration
      fee is Friday 31st May - that's six days time. If you have not registered
      and paid by then, you will have to pay the higher registration fee. Please
      note when booking, all the en-suite rooms have now been sold, so only
      single or twin rooms are available.

      As in previous years, there will be a Second Hand Game Sale at ManorCon. If
      you have any games to sell, then please let Alan Parr know in advance, by
      sending an SSAE to Alan Parr, 6 Longfield Gardens, Tring, Herts, HP23 4DN,
      so that he can send you the necessary stickers and paperwork.

      In addition to the second-hand games sale, there will also be a Games Stall
      offering lots of the newest and latest games available on the market. This
      will be run by Games Web Warlock and should be open for business from
      Friday until Sunday. They will be offering a 10% discount on their normal
      prices. Alternatively if you order and pay in advance by 16th July for any
      game for delivery at ManorCon, they will give you a 15% discount. Their
      web site (http://www.gamesweb.co.uk) gives details of games and normal
      prices, but if given enough notice they are willing to try to get hold of
      games that are not listed on the web site.

      WorldDipCon 2004.
      -----------------

      WorldDipCon was held over Easter in Australia. During the business meeting,
      the decision was made that WDC 2004 will be at ManorCon in the UK. ManorCon
      previously hosted the first WDC in 1988, and last hosted it in 1994.
      Details of the bid can be found at www.diplom.org/manorcon/wdc

      WorldDipCon 2003.
      -----------------

      WorldDipCon 2003 will be held in Denver, Colorado, USA, on February 14th to
      16th 2003. Held as part of the GhengisCon convention (the largest
      Convention in the area), it is looking like this may be the biggest WDC
      ever, with predictions of up to 200 Diplomacy players attending.

      Local contacts have been set up to help coordinate people travelling from
      different parts of the world. I am the local contact for the UK and
      Ireland. If you are considering travelling to Denver for WDC, then please
      let me know.

      David.
