Conventions 2021

The 2021 convention season is an unusual one.  We’re still deep in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, so we’re unsure which cons we’ll be able to attend, or what shape these cons will take.  That said, we do have plans to attend some conventions and will attend everything listed here either in person if safe to do so, or online if the convention is converted to a digital format.  If the region that is hosting these events has not yet reached herd immunity by the scheduled date, we are likely to cancel our attendance in order to keep our members safe.
