    Tokonatsu 2018 – The Aftermath

    As the air cools, and the wasps become distant memories, we take this time to reflect on Tokonatsu 2018, how it went for us, and how it went for you. I would lie if I said the weekend hasn’t left us at Toko-R all a little broken, and thankful for the days after to recover, but that’s because we put our all into this weekend, as did all the Tokonatsu Staff, Gophers and Committee that put their heart and souls into this event every year.

    How to deal with the Heat while Camping

    Well, it’s less than a week until we see you all, and if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, there’s still time! Head on over to <a href=”https://www.tokonatsu.org.uk/registration/ticket” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>the ticket page now!</a> This year has been one of the hottest years on record, and with that heat comes a good amount of danger. At the time I’m writing this, the Met office has issued warnings, suggesting that if it can be helped, you stay out of the sun entirely until the heat wave is over, and to definitely avoid the hours of 11am-1pm. Given the nature of Toko, it’s unlikely anyone is going to be following this advice, so…

    Zombie Nation

    For weeks, we have been hinting at something coming from the dark… Of a madness spreading throughout Tokonatsu and Toko-Retreat… Of something evil in the winds… Our posts may have left some of you confused, maybe even a little scared. “What could they be talking about?” “Hamburgers?” “Should I be worried?” Today, we are here to bring you answers, but the answers cannot bring you hope I’m afraid…for in your future, there is little hope to be had!

    History of Tokonatsu

    Greetings all! We are looking to put together a little something for this coming Tokonatsu, but we need some help from all you lovely past toko-goers. Essentially, we are putting together a History of Tokonatsu hall, but we need material to add to it. Sooooo if anyone has anything they would like to donate to the effort, we would greatly appreciate it. We plan to add to the display each year, and we think it would be a nice way for new comers to see what we’re about, and the history that our great festival has. Things we would be looking for (2005 – 2016) *Con Books (Physical or Scans)…
