We regret to announce...
*There will be no VCF Midwest this year.*

The conditions imposed upon us by the CoViD-19 pandemic and related
government regulations, as well as a depressed expected turn-out figure,
will make it impossible for us to host an event of the size and quality our
dedicated fans have come to expect.  Thus today we have terminated our 2020
contract with Waterford Banquets and the Clarion Inn hotel.

We recommend cancelling your hotel and travel reservations, if you have
made them, and we hope that you have not been too greatly inconvenienced by
our change of plans.

We also wish to express our thanks for the many responses we received to
our survey sent back in May.  Your feedback was informative, interesting,
humorous and most of all, essential in helping us make the right decision
about this year's show.

The good news is that we have an excellent relationship with our host venue
and have already locked in our contract for 2021.  Although a long way off,
plans will take shape early next year for that show, so please keep an eye
out for further announcements of VCFMW 16 (or will it be 15b? We don't know

Also, following the lead of other cancelled festivals, we are
considering a *Virtual
VCFMW *to be held on one or more of the dates allocated for this year's
show (Sept 12 or 13, 2020).  If we think we can pull off something half as
entertaining as the real thing, maybe we'll do it.  Watch your email for
announcements sometime in August.

Your humble(d) organizer -
