It has been pointed out to me that I’ve not followed up on a number of posts from earlier this year. So here’s what happened:
- The 2013 Diana Jones Award, which I wrote about here, was won by Tabletop and Wil Wheaton. You can see Matt Forbeck’s presentation and Wil’s acceptance speech on Youtube here.
- The CricketJam meetup, proposed here, was sparsely attended but was a fantastic day out. The match’s sponsors Davidstow had organised a village fete with various traditional English games and so I had the pleasure of demonstrating to games-people what a nasty, vicious game croquet really is. Drinks were drunk, talks were tunk, and Cleator CC from Cumbria beat Rockhampton CC of Gloucestershire in a fantastic nail-biter of a battle that went right down to the last wicket and the final few balls. Congratulations to both teams for a splendid match and some of the most entertaining cricket of the summer. There will be another CricketJam next year, and you would be a fool not to attend.
- I have still not finished writing Alas Vegas.
