And so here we are, a few days after the Easter weekend, and Dysprosium is over. The fans have left, the con hotel has returned to its normal, business-like self, and we’re on the way home. But for those four days, those wonderful four days, what a time we had!
To our four Guests of Honour, Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Herr Döktor and Caroline Mullan, our guests and speakers, the convention committee and staff, the staff at the Park Inn Heathrow hotel, and our members themselves – to all of them, we’re grateful for everything that they did to make the convention a success. Thank you for all of it.
Of course, not everything at Dysprosium was perfect, and however pleased we were about things that went right, we’re sorry for things that didn’t. We’d be happy to hear suggestions for how it could have been better – e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Responsibility for Eastercon now passes to Mancunicon for 2016, and to Pasgon for 2017. Congratulations to the two conventions on their success at the bid session at Dysprosium, and we’re looking forward to attending both!

Our thanks again to everyone who was involved with and who attended Dysprosium. We hope you enjoyed being there as much as we loved organising it. We should do it again!
