Just learned Anthrocon got cancelled again.
"We had high hopes but with the increasing spread of more virulent COVID-19 variants and an expected plateau in the rate of vaccination efforts, at this point it looks like that it will not be safe for Anthrocon 2021 to take place. As such we must unfortunately decide that the convention will be cancelled this year.
For those of you who have deferred memberships or dealerships from 2020, those deferrals will carry over to 2022, as will hotel rooms won at the charity auction. Emails with the coupon codes for Anthrocon 2022 will be sent out at a later date. Those who had newly registered for this year need not do anything. Those memberships will be cancelled and since no payments were processed there are no refunds that need to be issued.
We are planning a virtual convention for this year. Information regarding the virtual convention will follow shortly.
Plans are proceeding for the in-person convention for 2022 which will take place June 30th - July 3rd. Our theme of Aesop's Fables will be carried over, as will our selected charity (Wildlife Works) and Guests of Honor.
We are looking forward to Anthrocon's return next year and excitedly anticipate seeing everyone in person! Together we'll make Anthrocon 2022 the best Anthrocon ever!"
I need a drink.
