Anthro Northern Lights posted that message on their Telegram yesterday. As a member of that group I can report that this new Norway based furcon seemed to be getting the right start. A good hotel, people who wanted to go… but then those strains of COVID-19 began to appear and since we have to follow the rules set down by our own countries. I would say it could be assumed that COVID-19 was a factor in this discussion.
If you have been following the cons you would have seen a few also brand new fur cons put themselves out of business before they began.
I think once this pandemic is finally over it will be rebuilding process and hopefully the people behind this promises unfulfilled get a 2nd chance.
