Although Riyeko had to withdraw from the planning stage because of personal reasons, the event was still held. A grand total of 22 attendees were present.

|In the past few months I have come to the conclusion that I will not be able to organize and host CMF 4. I will be away for the entirety of this summer. When I come back I will have to be focused on my graduate school search, various projects, the GRE, and taking my general classes. All of this paints a picture that is incompatible with organizing the event.
I have had fun hosting CMF over the past three years, but I have arrived at the unfortunate reality of being a college student preparing for graduate studies. I apologize to those who will inevitably be let down. I still have all of the assets and information for hosting the event and would be willing to give guidance if anyone would like to take up the mantle.
