Who York Events
Thanks for the welcome to the blog so far! This installment is a little bit more newsy than opinion - but rest assured I have more opinions to come!
Listeners to Podshock episode 157 will hear Jarrod Cooper, the chairman of the Hurricane Who convention (http://hurricanewho.com) taking place in Orlando, Florida from Friday October 30 - Sunday November 1 2009, mention a new endeavour taking place in New York City associated with DWNY - Who York.
Plans are still being made and will be revealed here shortly, but our first event is expected to be in November, 2009. If you bookmark http://whoyork.com you will see that we are already putting some preparations in place.
While you wait to find out all the details though, I wanted to correct a couple of misconceptions that may be out there about Who York. It is *not* a full-scale New York City Doctor Who convention, but rather a series of low-key fan-run events that will occur 2 or 3 times a year as an offshoot of DWNY's regular monthly Pub and Video meets.
But that's not to say that nothing else exciting is coming soon to the New York area for convention fans. May 2010 will bring a full scale Doctor Who convention to the tri-state area, which is very exciting news, and I will be bringing you more information on that event as soon as the finalized details are ready for release!
In the meantime, I hope to see some of you at Hurricane Who, or at forthcoming DWNY meet-ups (Info at http://dwny.org)
