Clues as to the location of the 2015 Discworld Event

We've been giving out clues as to the location of the 2015 Discworld event on the official NADWCon Facebook page:

The Death Coffee Grinder (seen below) was Hint #1 as to the location of the 2015 Discworld event.  Fans have since had a lot of fun guessing in the comments section.

The art at the top of this page was hint #2. It gave an idea as to location and time of year. Oddly enough, some people seem focused on the lighthouse on the left hand side.  One clever duck looked up the artist, and found out that the title of this piece is Sasquatch Summer.

Well done.




We haven't been able to post the event information until just recently.  Nor could we say why that was. Understandably, the Discworld fans are anxious to know more, and they want to be able to make plans.  These notes below were posted at the FB and Twitter pages earlier in the month.

This note was posted to the NADWCon Facebook page on April 5th:

Things You Should Know: Events outside our control have made it impossible for us to comment on plans for 2015 until just recently. (Work has been going on behind the scenes for the last nine months and we have been communicating with the fans via social media.) The official announcement is planned for April of 2014.

PLEASE NOTE: It is not possible to book a hotel room at the event site until later in the year. We promise to make our announcement in time to give potential attendees well over a year to plan.

We have taken contact info from all those who have volunteered to help thus far, and we are very grateful for everyone's enthusiastic support and patience.

This note was posted to NADWCon FB page on April 9th:

Hi folks. We'd like to thank you all again for your patience and support. As we've said, we had hoped to make our 2015 announcement back in January but events outside of our control made that impossible. As we speak, the Planning Committee is working to solve problems that are none of their making. PLEASE NOTE: If it weren't for these folks, there wouldn't *be* a North American Discworld event in 2015. So please continue to be patient, and please also keep in mind that these people are Discworld fans just like everyone here. Each of them is a volunteer who is working diligently for the benefit of all the Discworld fans in North America. They will receive nothing but your thanks in return for the many hundreds of hours worth of work they put in before, during and after this event.

Regards, and Happy Spring to all here.

(Lots of really nice comments came in, especially after we made that last announcement - I heart Discworld fans)
