404? So we won't be able to find you?


I think actually my family won't be able to find me, reason being I will not be home.

Awwww Penners, I'll miss seeing you :cry:

I got one from the waiting list too! A864. I don't know if I can actually make it there or not, but there's no point in trying if I don't have a membership, right? It's going to be very close to when we're planning our big family trip, so tricky time and finance wise. But, we'll see! :D

So ... what's the difference between cancelled and postponed for two years?

It all comes down to membership as I see it.
Postponed means the current membership is retained.
Cancelled means that every thing is cancelled, current members get their money back and all must reapply at a later date.

Yeah, that's how I'm reading it too. It's the same time as the next con would be, but we already have membership sorted.

I'm glad. I didn't want to say I was cancelling, but at this point I was not planning to go. this sorts it all out nicely.

Ditto. With all the restrictions on international travel, I'm pretty sure I could leave the USA, but not sure if I could land in the UK. And once there, would I be allowed to come back home?

Ditto as well. I've been counting that out for awhile now. At least when it's held again I will have my membership sorted. That's my silver lining!
