It is with a heavy heart that we must inform all of our friends and attendees that we must cancel Tol-Con for this year. We thank you for patience, letting us search high and low for another venue but after exhaustive efforts to secure another appropriate venue or find novel solutions to make inappropriate venues workable, we have been unable to secure a venue that meets the needs of Tol-Con. With Tol-Con’s intended date only a few short months away, we cannot ask you to bear the uncertainty in hopes of the miracle that another event cancels and a venue suddenly becomes available, so we must turn our focus towards making Tol-Con happen next year.
I cannot describe how painful this process has been for us, as we are sure it has been for you, and how truly sorry we are for the position that the owners of the Ramada have put all of our friends and supporters in. Your patience and heartfelt support have given us strength as we struggled to cope with the abrupt cancellation and to find a way to prevent the Ramada’s sale out from under us being a death knell to this year’s event.
We will communicate a process for issuing refunds to all registered attendees shortly. If you have questions in the interim, please feel free to contact us at Info@tol-con.com. However, please understand that while we will do our best to get back to you promptly, due to the volume of communications and the steps we have to take to dismantle preparations for this year’s convention, responses may not be immediate.
Finally, although a full convention is no longer in the cards for us this year, we are in the process of planning a 1 day party for the Sunday that was originally scheduled – Sunday November 6, 2016. We hope you’ll join us for a pint! Details available on our Facebook event invitation, HERE.
