    In the absence of any long winded discussion / recap, the following will serve as a brief discussion about our time at MINECON 2015.

    As you are all no doubt aware, at the start of this month many members of the Spigot team converged from around the globe to attend MINECON 2015 in London. All in all we had @md_5 from Australia, @cindy_k & @jflory7 from America and @brajo & @Thinkofdeath from the UK itself. We were also supplemented by some community guests including @Awexdio, @Xor Boole, @aet2505 and the entire @CCGN team.

    Armed with a booth, T-shirts by @SeanMe, flyers by @Nogtail, wristbands by @Saphiria, additional artwork by @Lvl_1_Gamer and a video by @Nick we took to the expo center, right near the entrance and spent the next two days selling t-shirts and handing out flyers / wristbands to thousands of exhibition goers.

    We also hosted a lunch for around 60 community members, which was great to see and @md_5 was on the "Extending Minecraft Through Custom Content" panel organised by @Jadedcat, so hopefully there will be an official video of that soon. In the meanwhile, you can watch a partial snippet filmed by @jflory7.

    You can find a whole heap more photos in the MINECON forum, but all in all we had an enjoyable and productive time, and enjoyed meeting many of you guys in the community.

    Thanks again to everyone who contributed in some way or another, but I would like to once again draw special attention to @CCGN for their help in setting up the booth and providing us with TVs, monitors, etc, and also @aet2505 for running the booth solo whilst we all ran off to lunch.

    Hopefully we will see you again in 2016/2017,
    ~Spigot Team

    PS: There is a very limited supply of t-shirts available in the donor forum. First come, first served.

  18. As it being my first time at Minecon in general, i absolutely loved the whole experience and it was great to meet @md_5 and all the other spigot members at the panel. The whole panel setup was brilliant and brought the whole Spigot together to create some awesome looking merchandise.
