Shane Kerlin, alias Hopalong, is a 31/2 time loser who stupidly keeps volunteering from Mecon committees (3 ½ because two years ago, an unfortunate car accident (hence the nickname) meant that he didn’t actually do any work – although somehow he still got the credit – lucky sod). Previously he has been involved in the running of five Mecons: 2000 – where he was a helper/gopher; 2001 – where he was the Programs Assistant, 2002 – where he was now in charge of Programs, and finally 2003 –where he volunteered for Sponsorship (which doesn’t suit him at all!). 2004 – Programs, and this year, Chairbeing.
