The board has made the decision to POSTPONE the Cheyenne Gaming Convention until April 16th - 18th, 2021.
Notice we didn't say cancel? There is a reason. Keep reading, you will want to know this.......
We know. We are Wyoming. We are tough.......
However, we also are compassionate and caring.
We have a moral responsibility to our guests, staff, vendors, and hosts to protect the safety of them and their loved ones. So, due to the National Emergency caused by the COVID-19 virus, we have postponed until our 2021 convention.
What is the difference?
Let us be fully transparent. We are a small local 501.c3 charity, who has a very small budget to produce CGC with. This means that the decision to not hold a convention in 2020 leaves us with some financial responsibility that we cannot avoid.
Also, we know that our community wants to keep gaming (so much so we already had some big plans for the 2021 convention).
So, of course, we are offering full refunds to any guests, vendors, sponsors, or anyone else that would like them. No questions asked. However.........
We want to reward all of the amazing people who were so invested in the 2020 convention. So, like every good adventuring party, we have a plan....
You see, we will be a 3-day long convention in 2021. We also will be expanding some of our key events you may already be in, such as the Frontier Open. So, yes some of the 2021 badges and events will cost more than they did in 2020. But not for you!
If you keep your 2020 purchased badges and tickets, we will roll them to 2021. As a matter of fact, we will upgrade ALL badges from 2020 to the full 3-day badge at no cost. This means you are not only already in all of the events you want (we plan on keeping EVERY event we can, and actually expanding them to be better), but you will be in for the 2020 cost.
Also, every person who rolls their badge over to the 2021 convention will get the 2020 VIP shirt, with an important notation added. Evidently, 2 Natural 20s were not good enough for this saving throw......
Speaking of VIPs: our 2020 VIPs will not only get all of the 2020 items and things, but they will get all of the 2021 benefits as well, for no additional cost! We will probably add additional VIP badges for purchase for the 2021 convention, but you are already locked in and good to go!
We want to say thank you to our amazing sponsors, partners, and vendors, who have all reached out to us with love and support for this very tough decision.
Tl;DR - If you are wanting to come in 2021, you are already in, do nothing. If you would like a refund, please feel free at any time!
-The CGC team.
