Well, friends, as you can probably guess by the title, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel SnowCon 2021.We can’t safely hold an indoor event like SnowCon while the world engages in an involuntary LARP of Pandemic (always a table favorite). After waiting for as long as we could to make an educated decision, this is what we’ve come to.
For the past 12 years, we’ve been proud to host a gathering of fun, dedicated, charming, and all-around awesome people to play games together, no matter the weather. We care so much about you and our community that we can’t host an event that could contribute to a harder year for everyone.
We fully expect to celebrate
our “Lucky 13th” SnowCon in 2022.
Everyone who preregistered for SnowCon 2021 will receive an email discussing badge options. If you believe you registered for SnowCon 2021 and did not receive the email, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify your registration.
We hope that those of you who purchased badges for 2021 last SnowCon are willing to have your ticket apply for 2022. If you’re ok with this, there’s nothing you need to do – we’ll automatically convert your badge to a 2022 badge with great appreciation and keep you posted on what’s happening.
However, if that’s not in your financial picture, we completely understand. During this exceptional period, we’ll honor your request for a refund – which must be made by November 30, 2020.
A winter utterly without SnowCon may seem bleak, but we’ll do what we can to make it a brighter time. We plan to have some kind of online community event (hey, maybe we’ll live-stream the organizational team playing a game — we’ve never actually all played something at the same time). We’ll also find ways for everyone to connect on a virtual “So You Meet at a Tavern but It’s Actually Your House” party on our usual Friday so we can all catch up with each other.
We’ll also have some NoCon Definitely-Not-January 2021 merch for those of you who need to keep your t-shirt collection healthy.
Follow us Facebook for the latest updates, announcements for virtual opportunities, merch, and details as we plan for 2022.
Thank you for being a part of our SnowConMunity, online and off. We hope that you and all your meeple stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you when it’s safe to gather again.
The SnowCon Organizational Orcs,
Monique, Gibran, Drew, Todd, Shane, and Jared
