YoreCon was cancelled!

Several of the backers pulled out at the last minute, and they had to cancel the con. Jeremy, the guy that was coordinating, had quite a few hills to climb, was doing a bang-up job, but this last was simply too much. If he finds a way to get Yorecon off the ground for next year, he'll certainly have my support on it.

Better days, Jeremy, better days.

Wow. Never heard of a con canceled at the last minute. I suppose that should be a lesson to any con organizer to get everything in a contract so that people cannot pull out at the last minute. Just hope there still aren't bills to pay after all of this. There was a con here that ran for a few years, but then one year it racked up such a huge debt it could not put on any more cons. Now it just goes around begging for money online and other cons to pay the bills they still owe.

I have to concur here. Contracts (for sponsorships especially) are our friends....
