Fun While It Lasted

ComMisterio Bids Farewell To Mystery Community

ConMisterio, the recent mystery convention held in Austin, Texas, in July
2005 and July 2006, will not have an encore performance in 2007.
Organizer Karen Meschke reports that although ConMisterio II showed
increased attendance, and attendees enthusiastically received both years,
the convention still has not shown a profit. The staff has decided they
cannot continue at this time, and is regretfully retiring the name
"ConMisterio." The entire staff of volunteers of would like to thank the
mystery community for their gracious support and encouragement the past
two years.

The old (fringe-)fannish spirit within me says, Breaking even isn't sufficient, but then I realize 1) it doesn't really say they broke even and B) I ain't been doing the work. Nor could I at the moment. Now lets see about GoodisCon...

I'm sorry. It is sad when things like this don't take off and they end...its always after the fact that people miss them and wish they would've attended.

It was a very good convention, a lot of fun. I'll miss it.
