Nooooo! :eek:

My summer's going to be so boring now!!! I hope they put up the reasons soon, because I'm curious in addition to being disappointed.

That stinks ;_; I was looking forward to this con since it's the closest one aside from the one in my own city.

I'm really curious as to what happened...

Amanda,
Send your release to the ACML as well- I would like to know what brought you to this decision. The last time we spoke everything was going good?

Hmm... I highly doubt it was because of TT. They didn't cancel before when TT was on the same weekend. It's werid though, I remember reading on the owners Devi, GCAF was like 90% ready a couple months ago.

Noone remotely suggested that GCAF was cancelled because of TT. I think Bear was just suggesting it as another convention that falls around that time in the summer, should people be looking for something fannish to do.

Wow I'm actually upset about this lol. Maybe next year

Oops, sorry. I was marking all night and I read it wrong. : /

Well I'm not going to cancel my hotel room there, it might go up after the block is removed but that's okay. I mean I made plans to go down there anyways. Since I'm from Manitoba, I tend to plan May, June and July in Ontario, because of the cons there and seeing family. So for this weekend I'll just hang out in Niagara Falls and St. Catharines ^_^

I suppose I'll just track GCAF's staff at AN down next weekend and find out what's what.

Wow... this would have made me super sad, but it almost makes me happy knowing I won't miss an amazing weekend... Cause, I recently found out I have a wedding to go to that weekend (arg... never been a brides maid before... Just noticed how horrible that term is! I'm a maid!? )But.. Ya...

I'd really like to know why its cancalled!

I suppose it isn't that bad...of they transfer all the events and stuff onto next year and add new ones then GCAF 2007 would be a bigger event right?

The reason for GCAF's cancellation is because of lack of funds. They do not have the full means at the moment to keep the Con going every year, with only the few members that they have.

You got one part of it right, they lack in dedicated members. I don't think funds though was the key issue that caused the cancellation. All we can do is wait now for the offical CEO letter.

Being a close Member of the GCAF, this is not an offical reason why it was cancelled. But I don't want to step on anybody's toes and say myself , something untrue on why this year con was cancelled without proof.

But I am still sorry ofr all of you. <3

Hm, I find it kinda odd that someone just assumes it's lack of fundage. There isn't even a official report on what went wrong. But, I agree with Simihe. This will allow a much better standard for next year.

Every little mistake can be a big reward if learned from.

>/ GCAF was so cool too~ *le sigh* lets hope 2007 goes!!!

Lady_Sodina

I *really* hope it goes next year, I had so much fun last year!! I suppose I may end up actually going to CNA now ^^" I didn't intend on it, namely because I get bored way to easily at Hobbystar's cons, but *shrugs* I've bought materials for costumes, so I may as well do them!!

what *IS* the official reason?

Kitchen

No idea, the links are gone. But after NAF, I'll be planning for GCAF 2007 and just hang out with family during GCAF 2006's weekend.

NOOO.
we just left cali now there are no con's hereeeee.
lamelamelame.

is this offical?

Kitchen
06-05-2006, 06:46 PM
Unfortunally yes. o_o; There isn't a official reason yet though. Then again do we really need one? Does anyone know GCAF being in the Grape and Wine Parade this year is correct?

I heard the strangest rumor:

GCAF has release reports of deciding on keeping the Artist Galleria and the Dealers Room available for GCAF 2007.

Does anyone know if the rumor about terimating these rooms is true? Or just a hoax o_o;

Tsukasa_1
06-07-2006, 06:19 PM
Where are you getting these rumors from?

Far as I know, in the statement released to dealers and artists is that their booked tables would be transferable to the 2007 year. Which is a good indication that there was no plan on removing those rooms. In the future if you hear rumors, its best to confirm them with the Amanda the Con-chair. Her email is on the convention website www.gcaf.org :)

I'll be driving up tomorrow. I'm in Winsdor right now helping my sister move into her new home. It's kinda sad that GCAF won't go on, but I'll make the best of it. Besides, it's not gone forever as there is plans for 07. Hopefully they will combine the two so we get more events to go to. ^_^

Oh, I will also be hitting NAF on my way back to Winnipeg, Schu if you or anyone else here going to be there come and find me. ^_^ I'll be King Endy, my wife is being Serenity and my daughter will be Princess Chibiusa
