ScotiaCon Charity Partner Is

Scotiacon (UK) made the following announcement

We are pleased to announce that for 2022, we will be supporting Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue. They are a pro-indoor, no-kill, family-run cat charity based in East Central Scotland.

Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue’s aim is to ease the suffering of abandoned and stray cats and kittens in and around Edinburgh and Fife. They are a small, family run cat rescue who dedicate their efforts to promoting good welfare practices for cats and to helping those cats and kittens in their care back to health, so that they may find them a new loving forever home.

Their core focus is those cats living stray on the streets, the sick, injured and infirm who need special care to heal. They specialise in the hand rearing of infant and orphaned kittens and are on hand to offer advice on any aspects of cat care to the public through their Advice Line and Cat Care Centre. Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue relies entirely on the generosity of the public to provide vital services to sick, abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in the region.

Scotiacon Confirms next IN PERSON Con dates

Hello again everyone,

We hope you are staying safe and keeping well. It has been a difficult time and we have wanted to try and make things as easy as possible which makes this announcement very difficult.

Due to some communication errors, the dates we believed we had confirmed for the convention have turned out to be incorrect. We only learned this recently and appreciate this is going to be an inconvenience to those who have booked time off. We can only apologise profusely for this.

The confirmed dates for the convention are 11th-13th February (a week after the formerly announced dates).

We want our 10th convention to be the best it can possibly be and the whole team is committed to bringing the experience so many of you have enjoyed in previous years to a brand new and fantastic venue.

Once again, we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience as we try to navigate through the various obstacles we have been facing in order to put on an event we want as many people to enjoy as possible.

Take care and continue to keep yourselves safe.

The Scotiacon Team

Painted Desert Fur Con 2021 Announcement and Updates

Greetings! Based on the current city of Phoenix guidelines, Painted Desert Fur Con will officially be hosted December 31st, 2021 through January 2nd, 2022.

Per federal guidelines, the state of Arizona, and the city of Phoenix, it was deemed that large public gatherings will be safe to host this coming December, given the projected guidelines. Arizona has limited COVID-19 restrictions and preventions, but Corgi Events will have their own safety measures in place. We are contractually obligated based on the above to host our event; however, this is subject to change as guidelines change.

Scotiacon will return on

4th-6th February 2022

Please check back later for updates.

Once again, Hello everyone!

There follows another transmission from the good ship Scotiacon:

Once again, first of all we hope that everyone is in good health and doing as best as they can in these uncertain times.

We have continued to monitor the Covid-19 situation and its associated risks and restrictions closely. Our position has remained clear since the outset: If we feel that it is not safe to run the convention at the planned time then we will not run the convention at the planned time.

Although the UK was on course to end all restrictions in June it started to become apparent that there are still a large and increasing number of cases in those people under 30, an age group that have yet to be fully vaccinated. As this age group also accounts for a majority of Scotiacon’s attendee base this concerns us deeply.

Alongside this we had been preparing to open registration for September 2021 as soon as we knew when restrictions would end. As the earliest we are likely to know when restrictions will end has now moved from late June to late July this just does not leave us with enough time to plan and run Scotiacon.

We also visited the possibility of running in November 2021 as Scotiacon traditionally ran in November. Although it appears we would be safe to run in November it is just not fair on the band of volunteers that make Scotiacon possible to ask them to run the convention twice in the space of four months so we have decided not to run in 2021 and concentrate on making February 2022 our 10th anniversary spectacular allowing us both more planning time and time for the vaccination program to be completed.

Please accept this official invitation to join the Scotiacon hype train whose ultimate destination is the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow 4-6th February 2022!

Follow our social media and keep an eye on this website for registration opening in August 2021!

We continue to hope that Covid-19 is sufficiently under control by the end of summer 2021 and hope to see as many people as possible Boogying on down in February 2022!

Thanks once again to all of our attendees and those that plan to attend for the first time in 2022 for your continued support and understanding as well to our band of devoted Staff, Crew and Volunteers. Without all of these people Scotiacon simply couldn’t exist.

In the meantime, please stay safe.

Ceilfox & Silverfoxwolf.
