          If possible...and I'm sure Mike Covell won't mind....could we get a copy of the text of the speakers' presentations to peruse here on The Forums ?

          I think this would be a bonus to all those who study the Case and in particular to those who focus specifically on the subject matter the speakers will be discussing.

          Thank you.

            Hi All

            This post is just to confirm that we will be filming at this years conference, although when edits will be available? is more problematic..

            But we would like to include extra interviews and info on the Defintive Story special features.

            I've booked a hotel now for the weekend and would love to meet and chat with anyone in London.

            Catch you all soon. Jeff x

                I would like to wish everyone attending this year's conference a fun and informative time. I'm truly am that I can't make it this time. Share a toast to little old Rob back here in Canada if you get the chance. My recovery from hip replacement surgery continues to come along nicely.

                I truly hope someone from is there to represent.

                I'm there in spirit with handshakes, hugs and kisses.

                Robert

                p.s. Hmmm... wonder if I can make that 2011 London Job?

                    John Bennett is a very smart man, whose contributions to the Case are known throughout the community.
                    So its not surprising to me in the least that he'd be featured at the 2010 Convention delivering an important speech on an area of the Case that believe it or not,some people overlook at times.

                    I understand Jon Rees has been handing out mimeographed sheets containing some of my more better captions ( sorry that I didn't get to autograph any,gang !! ) to the conventioneers.

                      From Jon Rees' blog:

                      "Had a message at reception about a chauffer waiting for me outside RBS… Bizarre! Wandered down and couldn’t see anything."

                      50 bucks says that either Mike or Bob pulled that prank on you Jonny !

                        Few people have as much passion ( talent too ) in regard to an area of the Case as does Trevor Bond. He's a good guy and thats probably an excellent speech he's shown here delivering...

                        But speaking of delivering...thats an ominous message there on the message board someone mysteriously delivered right in the middle of T.B.'s speech.

                        ...but will the message be fulfilled ?:cool:

                          One of the benefits...or so they tell me..of visiting The Big Smoke...is getting to rub elbows with all different sorts of people. This may be true...I dunno.
                          Looks like Jon ( at left ) and Mike ran into one of the taproom regulars...Baphomet...during the Convention.
                          See if you can get him to register on the Forums,guys !
