Swancon 16 badge

Swancon 16 membership badge for Doug Burbidge

I must have had a Swancon 15 badge once; but apparently no longer.

Swancon 16 then: The Freeway Motel, in South Perth. Barbara Hambly. There was a wedding halfway through the convention. Not two of us getting married, so we lost our main programming room for a few hours. The traditional walk to Fast Eddy’s took longer than usual.

The badge is again in a badge holder. Note the high-tech anti-forgery mechanism, viz. four shiny blue squares, cut from gift-wrapping paper, I think. Note also that this badge not only has my name spelt correctly, but also is in a large, high-readability font in high-contrast colours. Well done that committee.
