The President

Ze SquiggleThe President

The artiste formerly known as Peter H. Squiggle (now Peter H. Squiggle MPhi - TeHe!) is pretty much a new comer to con-running. In fact, this is the first convention committee he's been on. And Hypotheticon: 1999 will be only the second Hypo he's been to. Perfect qualifications for the post of president. However, El Squiggle's con-count has just passed into double figures, and he served at Her Majesty's pleasure on the IO committee for two of his four years at Glasgow University as first Dogs body (O.C.M.) and then fraudster (treasurer). He now has a nagging suspicion he may never get out of con-running again!

The Secretary

BabsThe Secretary

Babs is a bit of a late comer (i.e. she's old! - I'm no old, I'm mature, so there!) to Science Fiction Societies and Conventions. Joined IO while at Glasgow University 1990-1994 and was a late addition to the Committee for Hypotheticon 1997. As the Secretary, Babs is the bossy one of the group with a (slight) tendency towards aggression when the going gets tough (Well I haven't hit anyone... yet!). Babs has managed to attend both previous Hypotheticons: the first one she was sequestered in an RPG tournament for the duration and the last one she spent almost the entire time on the front desk!
The Treasurer

KatThe Treasurer
Katherine Rennie has spent years carefully having nothing to do with this convention, refusing to do more than baby-sit the odd Dalek for previous Hypotheticons - on a strictly voluntary basis mind you and never whilst wearing a gophers badge. She has decided to take the obvious next step and become Treasurer of Hypotheticon: 1999 - a position from which she expects to see nothing of the convention at all. Her Science Fiction credentials were gained as Treasurer of IO and as Treasurer of The Cuckoo's Nest. Keen eyes may detect a trend here. She has years of experience in refusing to let committees spend any money, and trusts this will be easy in the case of Hypotheticon: 1999, which has no money to spend. She was elected Miss Supremely Evil 1994 and hopes this doesn’t worry anybody.
The P.R. Guy

MarkThe P.R. Guy
I'm Mark Peter Englefield, a green eyed, stubborn, moody, English, mechanical engineer from Glasgow University, but hey... I'm cute!
I could go on for hours about this con and that committee and the odd society that I was president for a while, but I won't. All I'm going to say is never volunteer for anything!

The Tech Op

CameronThe Tech Op
Over the last five years I have attended a few cons, for the first few I went as a punter and enjoyed myself, but having to buy my own drink drove my to volunteer for the role of tech. This was allowed after passing the Tech test, something to do with outlasting Sparks at a Dead Dogs party (also I was quiet handy with the Gaffer tape). Over the years of doing tech I have been promoted from Useless Git to Git to useful Git. Finally, I have reached the ultimate accolade of True Git, I have joined a con Committee.
P.S. I’m the one who fell asleep whilst operating the projector during a GOH’s talk at the last Hypotheticon. All offers of whiskey to stop this from happening again, will be accepted with gratitude.
