Schedule of Events

    Will there be a raffle? If so, when will the winners be announced?

    At the last convention some folks did not realize that they should bring their raffle tickets to the formal dinner and so lost out on a prize that he/she had wanted.

  2. Plug Basham says:

    There will be a raffle at dinner on Saturday night. So if you buy raffle tickets during the Conv., be sure to bring them to dinner.

  3. Dearest Plug,

    One hears rumors of a possible TWS cricket match Friday afternoon, yet the above schedule seems free of all mention of cricket. Could you elaborate?

    A bit fogged about the wicket

    ps – Though not an official convention event, I also hear former TWS president Gary Hall will be joining folksinger Terry Kitchen at Victrola Coffee & Art on 15th, 411 15th Ave. East, on Thursday evening 10/29 from 7:30-9:30 PM. It’s free, they offer casual dining and desserts in addition to coffee, and (we promise) Wodehouse will be sung!

  4. Plug Basham says:

    We attempted to plan a cricket experience, unfortunately that fell through.

  5. Oily says:

    Do we expect that recent PGW-related books, such as Wodehouse’s School Days, the two volume By The Way set, and Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse, will be on offer and–one hopes–signed by the authors/editors thereof?

  6. Plug Basham says:

    The globe by the way book will not be offered at the convention, but if you have a copy, I’m sure the editors will sign. There may be a few copies of the other books available as prizes, but I can’t say for sure.

  7. Psusan says:

    Some assorted authors are attending, but as attendees, not as sitting autographing authors. Ask pleasantly and ye might receive. An offer to stand the author for a round at the bar may be suggested as a nice return for autographing one’s book …

    Other books may be available, depending on if publisher/author decides to pay for shipping books to the Convention, or decides to deal with lugging them in their steamer trunks.

    I know we will have a few copies of Rannygazoo by Ken Clevenger, and a few Bashams by Plug himself, available for purchase.
