Sounds awesome. I highly doubt I'll make it this year. Maybe someday. . .

It's a bit out of the way - Pontrhydfendigaid is not exactly on major itineraries, and local hospitality is limited. Also, it's quite expensive for what it is. Finally, although west Wales is very attractive, I have yet to discover what connection it has with the Shire .... but it's a good line-up of speakers. Unfortunately, I shan't be there, but at a Dorothy L. Sayers convention. :smile:

A generous understatement. The google view:

Obscure location and in Cerdigion so they managed the faux-pas of not using a shire address!
