We are currently making tentative plans for , our Starsky and Hutch Slash Con. There is so much planning when throwing a con, and planning a con during a pandemic -- yeah, that adds "extra" to the sauce.
First thing we need to know: attendance. Normally we have around 50 people. In the space we have, that's cozy comfortable. But what happens if we have only 40? Or 25? Or 15? Besides enjoying extra breathing room, at a certain level of attendance, it wouldn't make sense, financially. (Fortunately, we have a already set up and are making arrangements for other online venues!)
You should be aware that currently, under the county's covid restrictions, indoor gatherings are limited to only 10 people, and that includes conventions. The mask mandate would have to be observed any time we step outside the con space. Obviously, the limited number of people allowed would have to change to allow us to have a con.
Survey choices are simple: definitely yes, I'm coming, definitely no, I'm not, or a definite maybe. We are asking for your fan name and email address so we can eliminate duplicates or mistakes. No one will have access to this information but Flamingo and Cyanne. The survey will be available for a limited time but why wait!
We know it's impossible to predict what might happen 6 weeks from now, never mind 6 months, but we've got to explore what's possible. Until we have a better idea of how many are comfortable making tentative plans to attend, it's hard to move forward. Hence, this survey:
Once the survey is completed, we can start talking about all the other fun stuff like panels, vid shows, art shows, etc.
Thanks in advance for your input.
