Invented by Eric Bentcliffe and Nigel Lindsay. Nigel had suggested that fans combine a vacation with a con (he had been unable to attend any conventions on account of work schedules). Urk and one or two other Mid-West [of England] fans took up the idea and three of them actually met at Torquay for the affair.
