Your Conference Committee
Our most important member – or at least the most visible – is Big Blue, conference mascot, at the top of every page on this site. Here's his story:
Renowned editor and lobster rights activist Big Blue grew up in the warm waters of Northumberland Strait, between the coastlines of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Big Blue is a local celebrity, not only for his one-in-a-million colouring but also for his role in editing the ever-popular Blue 15: A lobster's guide to grammar, spelling and claws.
His mother, née Edwina Subordinate Clause, was a poet (most known for her poem "This eel-grass bed my prison"). Big's father, Graham Gotcha, was a local actor. Both Graham and Edwina were surprised to find that one of their many thousand offspring grew up to be blue, though rumour has it that his great-great grandlobster may have had an indigo tint, especially on certain moonlit nights.
But when he's not hard at work cleaning up the claw scratches in the county newspaper, The Lobster Herald, Blue loves to hang out at the local shoals on a Friday night, where he can be found blowing bubbles at the karaoke machine.
The conference is organized by volunteers who work together for up to a year before the big event. We are extremely grateful for their talent and tenacity.
