I'd imagine that there'll be an announcement on the Livejournal Eastercon community eventually, but until then... I received this tonight, have no reason to think it isn't genuine.
Dear Pasgon member
First and foremost, thank you for supporting us in our project to host the first Eastercon in Wales. Without members, there is no convention.
However due to a number of circumstances that we are unable to rectify, we regret to say we are forced to fold the convention. Everyone involved has worked hard to try and make it work, but we are unable to proceed. We can only apologise for any disappointment, and add that more information will be forthcoming in due course.
Arrangements are being made to fully refund memberships, however we are also hoping to offer a mechanism for people to transfer their memberships to any replacement event that steps up to replace us.
Once again, you have our heartfelt thanks for supporting us.
The Pasgon Team
So no Eastercon next year unless someone puts a bid together pretty quickly...
update - announcement is here:
