Trinoc*con is no more [Apr. 5th, 2009|08:38 pm]

Word's starting to get around that Trinoc*con has been canceled.  This is correct.  I've seen one posting that said Trinoc*con 2009 was canceled.  This too is correct, but it's my understanding that Trinoc*con in general, and not just for this year, is gone.  Unless someone comes along and starts up the franchise again, there will be no more Trinoc*cons *ever*.  If anybody knows that this is incorrect, please let me know.

I'm okay with this.  It was always a pretty good con, in my opinion.  Keep in mind that I was a founder and always closely involved with it except for last year.  But a large number of its experienced con runners moved away or had kids or just wanted to do something else, and with the economy in the crapper, it's no surprise that the con couldn't continue.  But it was good up until the end, and this way it avoids an embardassing and potentially fiscally devastating denouement.

My thanks to everyone who worked and helped out to make Trinoc*con, pound for pound, the best little con in the Southeast.

I'm sorry I never got to go to one. Every year seemed like a particularly bad time to go, and I always figured I'd get another chance.

Just slowly getting around to catching up on things, but wanted to strongly second what you said above.
