POSTPONED OCTOBER 8-10, 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It’s been over 1 year since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has been a truly difficult and exhausting year for the country and the world. Fortunately, the vaccine roll-out is beginning to show signs of flattening the curve of infections and it’s been projected that every American should be able to get a vaccine by the end of May.
While we hope that is the case, it’s unlikely that venues and events will be permitted to operate at a normal capacity by that time—and while I hope I’m wrong about that, I feel that it’s vital to provide an additional buffer of time to allow as many people as possible to receive the vaccine and to give time for people to get acclimated back into normal(ish) life.
With that being said, I’m postponing Momento Con & Sci-Fi Valley Con until Fall 2021.
- Momento Con in Pittsburgh will be re-scheduled for September 4-5, 2021.
- Sci-Fi Valley Con in Altoona will be re-scheduled for October 8-10, 2021.
Currently, my plan is to keep everything the same as it would have been for 2020. I’m working to see if all our guests are available to reschedule for Fall 2021. Everyone is confirmed for Momento Con (NEW Guest Addition: Tim Omundson / Amanda Tapping appearance moving to 2022) and the majority of Sci-Fi Valley Con guests are confirmed. If a guest cancels, I will notify you if you purchased a ticket for them and you can get a refund, or use the balance for another guest, or I can transfer the funds into your account balance for future use.
I will be automatically transferring everyone’s tickets and vendor spots to the new Fall 2021 dates.
Hotel rooms transferred and canceled:
- The Westin hotel in Pittsburgh (for Momento Con) transferred everyone’s reservations to the September weekend.
- The Courtyard hotel in Altoona (for Sci-Fi Valley Con) did not transfer everyone’s reservations. They canceled the prior reservations before the postponement.
We suggested reaching out to the hotel(s) to confirm your reservation.
I have a lot of work ahead of me now to get everything back on track for later this year. This will be a good time to get reorganized and this fall we will come out of this better than we could have imagined. Things always have a way of working out that way. This fall will be beautiful and we will be ready.
