As you may have seen on Facebook or from our app email, the physical 2020 SkalCon convention is cancelled.
We realize this is an event you have been looking forward to (and so were we!). But after a discussion at our last committee meeting we decided to cancel, due to the risks of coronavirus in a gaming convention setting. Sitting within 6 feet of each other for 4+ hours at a time indoors is a risk to our volunteers and attendees, even if we were wearing masks and taking other precautions.
We have a survey on how we can best hold an online SkalCon event, and if there is enough interest for us to organize the event. Please take this survey right away so we can begin planning this online event! We’d love to bring the community together and raise funds for Tubman, a local organization that needs our support more than ever this year.
In addition, SkalCon 2021 will be September 24th – 26th, 2021. We are hopeful that even if there is not a vaccine available for COVID-19 at that time, events of our size will have enough knowledge, equipment, and experience to prevent the spread of the disease.
