In case you've not seen the updates from Doug and Mike via FB, Anthony:
Please don't panic... we still don't know if we will or won't be able to have the Con on June4th-7th... all current shelter in place orders are until April 3rd... an of course could be extended .... I am hoping we can still have the Con, even if it only turns out to be 150 people.... but again, we'll have to wait and see.... The TableTop Events notice about going offline at the end of April makes it harder... since I'll have to come up with the alternate solution... I can print. export etc all the info so I have it on hand, just not near as convenient as having a site with the data handy... I am working on solutions... hang in there...
We probably don't want to admit that things are not going back to normal anytime soon. Because admitting that is painful. This is not a 2-month hardship. Life has changed. We've been told this was coming for decades. I watched entertaining documentaries 10 years ago about this very event while eating chips and salsa. It could have been far worse. The virtual con is an interesting idea. Though I admit that the breadth and impact of "now" is disallowing me to consider cons in any context. My beloved uncle has tested positive and his symptoms are not improving for the moment. My wife is out of work. My eldest drove cross country w/ her newborn to stay with us through this. So yeah, lives are so upended right now with no clear resolution. 2020 is probably not the (hopefully inevitable) bounce-back's time frame. But I do continue working on game materials, helping my local crew through the trauma with game night. And I do hope we can have cons again soon-as-safe in a normal sense. Still, I'm hopeful we'll get a vaccine quicker than the dire 1-year prediction. And i'm hopeful that all of this ultimately brings us closer together. Games seem like a great foundation for that very thing.
== We want to have the Con if we can, but know that even if there is no stay at home order by the time Jun 3rd arrives, it will be an individuals choice to come or not. I want everyone to be safe... and being at a higher risk myself, I'll be safe and remind others to throughout the Con... and if I can get extra masks I will ! This Con will create some challenges if it happens or not as it will be a mixed real/virtual Con if it happens and all virtual if it doesn't... and I'll have to define a way to "allow" attendance for Knight Ranks since this is not something anyone has control over. But I'll touch base on what tings might change when it all goes down.. TShirts, Bags etc will will still be available depending on how badges are kept/donates/rolled over etc... or just purchased... many things will change this year and hopefully only for this year. But you might end up with something more unique if you don't attend vs if you do.... we'll make it a fun "non-event" if it ends up that way.
