RDMC 2020 Postponed
Dear Friends and Family of the Red Deer Mini Con,
This last year has definitely been a roller-coaster of a year with the unprecedented events happening around the world, the likes of which none of us have seen in our lifetimes. With the introduction of COVID-19 into our lives, it has brought much uncertainty as to how we all need to act in order to stay safe, as well as how to keep others safe during these troubling times. The postponement and cancellation of events is just one way that we are all sacrificing to keep each other safe.
Alberta is doing relatively well in containing the outbreak of COVID cases and we are currently in the middle of our “Reopening Stages”, allowing us to slowly get back to some semblance of normality in our lives. This is all because of the sacrifices everyone has made over the past six months and everyone should be proud of themselves for that effort.
The future of RDMC is something that we have been keeping a close eye on over the last few months, as the restrictions on events have started to come closer to allowing us to host our mini con again for 2020. With the current path that Alberta is on we might be able to just squeak in our event as things open up but me and our staff have all agreed that for the safety of everyone involved it is best to postpone RDMC until 2021. Exploring all our options for the event this year, as we are entering our reopening stages, it would have put too many people at risk as well as taken away so many aspects that make RDMC such a special event for its attendees. Putting people in danger and hosting a sub par event is something that none of us want.
We would like to thank all the loyal attendees of the past and future for sticking with us and helping make RDMC all it has been over the past 6 years. RDMC is planning its return on September 24th to 26th 2021 at our current hotel, the Baymont Inn and suites in Red Deer. Until then we remind you to take care of each other and share some time with your friends and family and support each other as we all go through these difficult times.
We can not wait to see you all again. Until then, love one another, and stay safe.
Jake and the staff of Red Deer Mini Con.
