Nooooo!

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.

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!
