ArmadaCon 2020 has been CANCELLED
Hello from ArmadaCon
We were really hoping not to have to write this, but we believe we have no choice.
As I am sure you have suspected, we are having to cancel ArmadaCon this year. It has been a hard decision and we held out hope for as long as possible, but we have had to bow to the inevitable.
I hope like us, you aren’t surprised, but disappointed. We had to gauge the fun of the convention and seeing all our friends again, against the risks and challenges posed by the pandemic we are living through. Things are slowly improving, but at this stage the compromises we would have to make and the procedures we would have to put into place would seriously effect what we could do.
We would love to see everyone, ArmadaCon attendees feel more like family (strange and possibly a little weird sometimes), but we would rather everyone stayed healthy and safe and we could see you next year.
Additionally, we don’t know what the future will bring. Experts are talking about a second wave in the winter and that could hit just as we are starting the convention weekend. We are financially stable at the moment, but if we had to cancel at the last minute it could hit us hard and jeopardise ArmadaCon 2021.
We are intending to transfer everyone’s registration to next year. If you have paid for 2020, don’t worry you don’t have to pay for 2021.
However, all is not gloom and doom. Along the lines of a number of other conventions we are planning on going virtual. We have already started talking about what we want to do. It won’t be ArmadaCon in the flesh, but we hope to try and give you a feeling of the Con anyway.
Keep an eye here and social media for further details as they become available.
Gary the Orc is taking his usual summer hibernation at the moment, but he will soon be rudely awoken with a big stick (we don’t want to get too close, you should smell his hibernation breath, yeuck) and we will force him to spread the news.
If you have the time, we would love you to get involved in our first virtual Con and if anyone wants to contribute in anyway, please feel free to let us know.
Whatever happens stay safe, healthy and sane and we hope we can see you next year.
