MidCon is run by a team of volunteers, chosen more for their willingness to work unpaid than for their photogenic qualities.

So, don't say you weren't warned, but someone suggested that it might be a good idea to post photos of the committee members on the web site and in the con booklet to make it easier for con attendees to find them should they have an issue they wish to report. If all else fails, looks for the people in oversized MidCon blue polo shirts.

So, without further ado, here are the guilty men.

Jeremy Tullett

Chairman of the committee. Handles bookings, usually mans the registration desk and is fond of remarking "it's a games convention, not a beer festival". Drinks wine.


David Norman

Quizmeister, town crier and Diplomacy player. Fond of dress down Fridays ...


Peter Card

First lieutenant on a lot of things, such as the Bring & Buy and the Beer sub-committee. Fond of starting a game of Agricola at 1.20am and falling asleep


John Harrington

Does the web site (on 1990s software), the Bring & Buy and is on the Beer sub-committee. Fond of shouting out "Wild boar!" and "Gold!" at random moments during games.


Dave Simpson

If there is a Diplomacy tournament, Dave runs it. Unless Dave runs it - Dave N, that is. Also does the con booklet and advises the Beer sub-committee. Fond of saying he has absolutely no interest in invading the Western Mediterranean Sea. 


Giles Bennett

We haven't got a photo of Giles yet but if you've been to MidCon before and been to the Bring & Buy, he's the mastermind behind the fab-o app, barcode and sticky label system. Fond of saying "The system is currently still foraging through BGG to get up to date."
