Rocket City FurMeet 2014
On May 2, 2014, RCFM CEO KO announced that the convention was to be cancelled for a second year running. He reported that the hotel "had a pipe freeze and break back in January. The flooding practically destroyed a large part of the hotel building, and they won't re-open until sometime this summer." RCFM staff were not informed of this development until early April. The hotel did shut off their room reservations system after the flood, but RCFM staff were also not informed of that until April.
|we've spent the past month discussing possibilities, such as campgrounds or renting an unconventional arena space, but we've been unable to come up with some way to host RCFM this year.
We've also spent the past two weeks discussing the idea that maybe we should end RCFM for good, closing the corporate entity, cancelling our 501(c)7 filing, and just fade into the night never to be seen again. I don't like the idea of never bringing the whole Family back together again, but two years of constant struggle simply to find a hotel we can afford has been very tiring on all of the Staff involved.
