No News Yet

We know there hasn't been any news yet about SNAFU Con 2020 but we don't have any yet.

We are currently discussing our options with the GSR. We will announce what's happening as soon as we know.

Due to the uncertainty we are not opening registration or taking applications for merchants or staff until we can be sure one way or another as to what's happening.

We are sorry we haven't been answering emails or really doing much like updating the website or facebook or our graphics or anything. We're all sort of short on spoons with the stress of the pandemic happening.

Feel free to join our discord to talk to other attendees and our staff. We'd love to talk to you.
