Fwd: RE: Conventions
- I thought you would be interested in this if you don't already know about
it. It sounds like anyone wanting extra publicity for a con can just email
Emeric and ask him to send it round. I agree with him; should be very good
for the FTF hobby.

Thanks for the note....
Already on the job on that one ;-) This has been one of the things that a
few of us have been working on. E-Mail Dip has destroyed the Postal hobby
but could be the real making of the FTF scene. In addition to the usual
suspects me, Toby and Phil Day - we have 2 new guys coming with us to Paris
next week to the French NDC. At the London Trophy last month we had 2 new
e-mail players came to theit first Con and the US guys are also working on
In addition to the names of players here I also have about another 200 names
from the World Diplomacy Register at http://www.diplomacy.org.uk/survey and
have setup 2 mailing lists
1) For all UK based players
2) For all European players
The Con organiser now just ask me to post the info out. It is proving to be
a good communication method.
Methinks the prospects for FTF are at their very best for years.

Having already come across two UK players who have never been to a
convention, there is a good chance of doing some publicity for the FTF hobby
here. One guy mentioned that you might be doign some promoting. Just
wondered what you were thinking of, so as not to step on your toes. It
occurs to me that it might be a good idea to send round details of, say,
Mastercon and Manorcon to all UK-based players not already obviously in the
loop. What do you
- I'm going to have to go LECTURE Emeric..... destroy the postal
hobby indeed!!!! I have more games, more players, and more
subbers than I have in the entire 16 years I've been publishing!
The "death" argument is one that REALLY gets me going! Smaller
yes, but dead probably never. AND, to the extent there is a
problem I'm absolutely convinced that the problem is finding
szine editors, not finding people who would like to play "postally".
