As most of you know, Nuke-Con is planning for its 30th annual convention in 2020. We’ve been growing our family-friendly game convention bit by bit for all those years.
It hasn’t always been a smooth path. For instance, when we need to move to a new location we see a dip in attendance for a year or so, until all of our gamers find us again. Our volunteer staff comes and goes, and we have to adjust to the changes. Some years the logistics are a nightmare; some years the con runs so smoothly we wonder why we need staff at all! For all these 30 years, the gamers have been the biggest reason we put in the work to present Nuke-Con. This year’s Covid-19 concerns are posing a whole new set of problems to solve, and it’s you gamers who are top-of-mind while we decide what to do this fall.
The Nuke-Con staff is continuing to prepare for the convention on October 2, 3, and 4, 2020. However, no one knows what quarantine conditions will be like 5 months from now. If the staff finds that we aren’t able to hold our regular family-friendly, safe weekend of games we may decide, with great reluctance, to cancel the event.
In the meantime you can help by buying your badges, scheduling your games, contacting your friends about what a great convention we are, and generally acting as though this is a normal year. If we do have to cancel, we’ll refund the cost of your badge or you’ll have the option to roll your badge over to 2021.
Here’s a link to a really brief survey – three questions and a comment section! Please spend the extra minute or so to help us make sure we’re doing the right thing.
We do hope to see you in October. Please be safe until then!
