Pacificon Game Expo 42 postponed
My mantra has always been ‘hope for the best, prepare for the worst’. And we waited and worked with the Marriott, checking in every couple of weeks, paid close attention to the Santa Clara county reports. And to no one’s surprise, we are faced with having to postpone <still not giving up total hope> Pacificon… in case things change before next year’s show.
No matter how hard we try, there is just too much risk to the health of people we have grown to love these past fifteen years, and look forward to seeing again for many years to come.
All registrations and dealer payments will be applied to either a postponed show, or to next year’s show, through 2022. Your choice. So even if we start up next year, and you aren’t ready to attend, you can come the following year.
We are not in a position to offer refunds at the moment, as our monthly expenses have put us in a tough situation, like so many of you. We can offer refunds, but likely won’t have the financial ability to do so until after our next live event.
We ask you for your understanding with this, because we want to survive the year, and be here to continue a Bay Area Labor Day Weekend tradition that has been here since 1979.
Please. Most importantly, be safe. Just because we have made it this far, with many of us entering our fourth month of quarantine, the virus is just as deadly to many of our community and their families.
My story is not much different being 60 with blood sugar issues and, well, I could stand to lose a few <many> pounds. Like so many of you, I have stayed locked in my home, rarely venturing out. Gaming is such a huge part of my life, has been for all my life, playing games, designing, running events, game shop, convention owner. I pray for each and everyone of you that we all get through this, and are able to roll dice together once again.
Yours in Gaming,
In the meantime…
