Hi Tara
I can help out with two, I live just around the corner from the college hosting the London event so can doorstep them about it, and I've also given a talk on accessible gaming to the organisation who are carrying out the Plymouth event, their head has a strong interest in the subject as a result so there's a very good chance I could get them to take part.

I'd also be very interested in helping out with the pack, my background is in both design (in the creative & layout sense rather than game design sense) and writing and advising on standards & guidelines, so please let me know if there's anything I could do that might be useful.

Ian

I'm going to be putting together an informational packet with info on game accessiblity, rules for the contest, and the score sheet and so on soon.
