Frequently Asked Questions About FenCon XVII Postponement


We will update this list as the need arises.


You have questions? We have answers.

Q: Why did you postpone FenCon?

A: Given the potential health risks to our members and the uncertainty surrounding whether or not we could hold an event in September at all, this was a logical move to make. This was done in concert with our hotel. Please see the statement on the home page for additional details.
