[edit] History

ScotiaCon was originally planned to be held around Easter 2010.[2] with ThrashWolf as chairman, Ixis as co-chair, Zenon as treasurer and Kanibal responsible for the website development.[2] It was to be held at the Ramada Jarvis hotel, Inverness, with three ticket types - the basic attendee "MacRegular" for £55 and two enhanced options - the "MacPremium" priced at £65, and the "MacSponsor" priced at £99.[3]

The convention was put on hold however when Thrashwolf left for personal reasons.

[edit] Relaunch

In July 2010, ScotiaCon was relaunched under new management, with Smirnoff and Black Wolf as co-chairmen. The website went live in July 2010, and announced the new date of the convention as July 15-17, 2011, to be held at the Ramada Jarvis hotel in Inverness (now known as the Mercure Inverness).[4][5]

[edit] Mascot

ScotiaCon's mascot is Wallace, a Scottish terrier named after national hero William Wallace.[2]
