BAAF 2004 Cancelled!

www.bigappleanimefest.com

I still plan to do the WISH group, and some Resident Evil for next year. Thats about it, I guess everybody knew this one was comming. SO I guess AnimeNEXT will get all the glory this year for the tri-state area.

Good luck fellow BAAFers for next year, I hear that one is going to happen SO FAR... so don't have those hopes up too high.

Offical statement:

BAAF to skip 2004 event due to Republican National Convention

Following a series of meetings in New York and Tokyo over the past weeks, BAAF has decided to skip a 2004 event due to the overlap with the Republican National Convention at the same time, in the same venues. As announced previously, the Convention has reserved almost all of the available hotel rooms in New York City over the Labor Day timeframe, making it impossible for BAAF to mount the same sort of event as in previous years.

Rather than change the timing of the event, which would result in conflicts with other trade and consumer events, or limit the scope of the activities, BAAF decided the best approach would be to skip 2004 completely, and focus on 2005.

If you wish to be kept informed of BAAF announcements, please add your email address to the BAAF mailing list. This list will not be provided to third parties.

No further updates of this site are anticipated until the 4th Quarter of 2004.


Very best regards,


BAAF

heh I second that.
NO FAIR! I worked my BUTT OFF to get ALL A's on my report card (well m A-'s . . . ) SO I could go to Newyork and Go to The ANime Fest! I wanted this since the beginning of the year. Yeah, mom suggested anime next but it's a school weekend for me and finals are the week following it also. My school sucks-_-I wish we didn't have those snow days. . then I could go. but if this is cancelled, there's really no where else I can go. Only little things like cosplay picnics but there's been only one in my area. . .I'm not close to any other cons except PortCon but that's the same day as anime next and is an hour and a half away, so. . .and Mom only wants to go for a few hours. Then I say there's no point in driving 2 hours to a place in which you only stay 2 hours and then drive back. *sighs* I guess I'll just work on my cosplay. . .
