ZapCon 8 Roll Call - April 25-26, 2020 - CANCELLED
« on: June 03, 2019, 07:26:59 pm »
Today, following the guidance of the CDC regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Mesa announced they are closing the Mesa Convention Center through April 30, 2020.

This means that Zapcon 8, scheduled for April 25-26th, 2020, is cancelled.

Unfortunately, we don't see any viable rescheduling options for this year, and will be turning our attention towards coming back better than ever in 2021.

While it saddens us that we won't be able to put on a great show for you this year, this is clearly the correct decision given the severity of the current situation and the risks that would be associated with the show at this time.

We are ever grateful for the tremendous support we've received from the entire community over the life of our show.  Zapcon doesn't exist without the support of the contributors, the vendors, the volunteers, and our attendees. We want to thank you for your past and continued support.


Zapcon is produced by the Classic Games Preservation society, a non-profit dedicated to preserving and sharing the classic arcade and pinball experience to all. As you might expect, losing the show this year will put a strain on the financial side of things. For those who want to support the show in 2021 and beyond, we will be announcing some ways you can help, including the availability of personalized badges, Zapcon 8 pins and t-shirts that we are all otherwise missing out on collecting this year.  In addition, once public events are again available, look for the announcement of various Zapcon nights at venues across the state, including replacements for some of the various tournaments that would have been held at the event this year.

Again, thank you for your support in these difficult circumstances. Above all, keep yourselves and each other safe.

óóóóó-

For posterity sake:

The Ocho is set, bros!!! Be there or be...

Please put me down on the "maybe" list. I've planned to go the last couple of years, but somehow something always seems to come up around the time of the show that prevents me from being able to attend. Hopefully the third time will be the charm.  :)

Same location?

"Can You Dig It?"   -  I think I watched that movie at least 7 times as a kid not counting all the other times my friend would come over and make me fast forward to the Baseball Furies scene.

He's in. One way or another. I have an Arroyo sized burlap sack and a bottle of chloroform ready to go. Apparently I won't need it for Titch. He is coming on his own.

I will go Dog the Bounty Hunter on your ass if you try to back out Titch. Ask Andrew Luster how that worked out for him.

Any idea what would be the best flight path to take?

Zapcon then AK or other way around?

Obv will prob have connections in between but this is going to be a mare to organise heh.

Arkansas is directly below Kansas City so Phoenix is not really along the way.  I don't think you'll be saving anything trying to combine the flights.  Sounds like 2 trips.

Hereís what Iíd do

Letís say youíre staying a week.

Fly out to Arizona on Thursday. Rest.

Friday, Saturday, Sunday, ZapCon weekend.

Monday, take your banjo and fly out to Arkansas to meet the kin. Stay the rest of the week there.

Fly home the last day.

That way, you do the running around and hijinx during the first part of the week, and the rest of it is relaxing and chilling with your kinfolk. Easy peasy.
