I would probably want to go to a clinic on railway sandwiches, mainly out of curiosity to see how many anorak's would be sitting in the group Grin

The topic of sandwiches sounds far more interesting than the usual convention clinic topics. And the crowd (both of them) might provide some refreshing heckling. I might fly out for this one. If creativity is permitted, I could propose some interesting sandwich flavo(u)rs along with a variety of exciting condiments. -- Russ

  If Mario is involved I'm sure there is going to be lots of heckling . But I can handle Mario !

  Yes , a Sandwich Symposium sounds like it could be a winner . Do they allow the import of Marmite to Australia , or is it regarded as a Banned Substance ? If you don't know what Marmite is , you must have lived a very sad and sheltered life .

Will there be tasty bits of the various sandwiches for sampling? 

Never had Marmite or Vegemite..sounds most interesting....like a delicate Spam or Liverwurst I suppose.

I think I may have a pertifed one of those 1-euro salami sandwiches they sell at the Berlin S-Bahn platforms, that I can contribute to your lecture.

   Marmite couldn't be further away from either of those two .

   Think of thick black axle grease spread on with a trowel and you're getting close . It is one of those tastes that you either love or hate . There is no inbetween . Over here it has become a term used to describe the two extreme points of view .For instance , I think of Joanna Newsom as "The Marmite Girl" , you either love her music , or you hate it . In her case , I love it and the rest of my family hate it !

  But I digress .

Nick,
If you turn up and start presenting a clinic on "Railway Sandwiches from 1980-2010", I'll happily present you with the biggest jar of Vegemite I can find...unless you are concerned about sore arms and shoulders from working for Jacq, and wont be able to carry it home Grin

 I don't think making 1000s of bricks for Jacq will make me that sore so I should have enough strength left in me to drag a jar of Vegemite home . Though I was hoping that my suitcase would be lighter on my return journey after having dumped a load of my junk on the unsuspecting Oz NG modellers .

Marmite (and I presume the same goes for Vegemite)  comes from the dregs you get after making beer. In Germany and Switzerland we feed this to the pigs and  look forward to enjoying a tasty ham sandwich at a later date.

Is Jacq coming to the Sandwich Convention? I could bring one of my favourites - cold baked beans with added tomato sauce and chutney? Shame Melbourne is so far away from Brisbane!

 It's a booger sight closer than South Shropshire in England . So if I can make the effort ( which is yet to be seen ) then I'm sure you can !
