Albacon, the Albany, NY convention has been cancelled for 2011. It had been planned for the October 21-23 weekend.
Christopher J. Ford, President of the organization that runs the con (LASTFA), says there may still be a modified writers workshop and a fan gathering on Friday evening but no decisions have been made.
Paid registrations will either be returned or transferred to 2012 as requested. Dealers and Artists fees will be returned.
The 2011 event only had 43 pre-registered members as of September 20. The concom reportedly had decided to pull the plug if they didn’t reach 125 a month before the con.
Albacon plans to return in 2012 and there is a new webpage for it.
