News for Kami Kon 2007:

Kami Kon cancelled

by PatrickD

Kami Kon, a convention in Nashua, NH that was announced just a little over a month ago, has been cancelled. The cancellation notice was posted on the Kami Kon forums and reads as follows:

Kami Kon is being cancelled due to insufficient funds and personal issues. All money coming in (that hasnt been recieved yet) will be sent back as soon as it arrives, unopened. All payments recieved currently have been VOIDed were mailed back out this morning. If you have any questions please contact me at

The cancellation comes after significant speculation by members of Kami Kon's forums (and other forums) whom were concerned about the short, two-month timeframe in which the convention was being organized. Concerned about the lack of publicity and announcements, people had been posting to the Kami Kon forums looking for more information. Today, all those posts were wiped and replaced by the cancellation announcement.

This is the third convention to be cancelled or postponed in the last week, following the cancellation of AnikiCon and Llamacon's postponement.
