At PicoCon, we picked up a flyer for a 2012 Eastercon bid, named Olympus 2012.

As far as I can tell, this appears to be a different bid from the OlympiCon 2012 one, seeing as it's looking at holding it in London rather than in Brighton.

If so, 2 bids, over 2 years out? What a change this is from 2007, when the Convoy bid for 2008 occurred (and folded six months later, probably due to widespread discontent at the Liverpool Adelphi as a venue).

That was my thought, too. Followed by "how unoriginal of them both".
