Notes and other details
The first ever summer BJC, due to forced re-scheduling because of venue problems. It was also the first ever BJC to return to a previous venue.
Large (and very shiny new) Big Top from Swamp
Catering from Montegriffo's Frying Circus
There was also a small swimming pool on site open at various hours during the convention free for convention goers.
There was no parade, but the games and show were only a 25 minute walk from the site.
This Convention ran into financial difficulties.
