Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to answer our poll questions on the possibility of a Glasgow Doctor Who convention.
On the plus side, we have had more responses to the polls than we expected. There appear to be a fair number of people interested in the idea of Glasgow events and that is a very positive sign for the future.
However, from the responses we have received, any convention we may hope to organise in 2014 would be risky at best.
Attempting to match the number and type of guest attendees would expect with the price they would be willing to pay for a ticket is simply bringing us to the conclusion that, at this point in time, it would be a struggle to break even on any such event, never mind make money for our nominated charity.
Sadly, that means we will have to put the idea on hold while we continue to build the group’s numbers to the point where we are confident in being able to successfully run an event without such a high financial risk.
Thanks again for your support. Sorry we’re not quite in a position to make it happen… yet.
But who knows? Maybe 2015?
The best thing we can all do to help make an event a reality in future is to keep telling people about the group on Twitter and Facebook and, above all, keep joining in with all the fun at our regular meetings!
We hope to see you all at our regular group meetings at the Crystal Palace on Jamaica Street, from 6:30pm on the first and third Sunday of every month.
