**ANNOUNCEMENT**

Please read it all!!!!!


Good afternoon,
I am Bonnie Auten.. Co-Founder, Con-Chair and Boss Lady (or whatever else someone calls me..lol) of Con Kasterborous


I know everyone has been waiting on word about Con Kasterborous 2020! We have talked about the size of the venue, the amount of Vendors and Artist Alley tables and the attendees. We feel it is in the best interest of the health and well being of everyone that we CANCEL the con for 2020.


There will be full refunds made for Registrations, Vendor and Artist Alley tables. We will start with people who registered for Con K 2019 and then we will refund people who registered for 2020. I will personally be the one to pay you back, so Please be patient with me getting the refunds to you.


Now for some personal talk:: My life changed 2 yrs. ago when my dad passed away. I became my mother’s care giver. I have been running conventions for 20 yrs. now. It’s been fun and alot of work. I have helped several people with info and planning to start their own cons. I was glad to help them. I would still help anyone that would like to ask me any questions. I recently turned 63 yrs. old. My life is changing and there are alot of things I want to do and places I want to go. So, with that being said:: It is with a heavy heart that I announce my retirement from running the convention. I feel it is the best thing for me.


Thank you for all of your love and support for myself and the con over the yrs. We have the best Staff ever. We could have never done it without them. Thank you to all of them for being there for us and working so hard to make the con the success it has been through the years. It’s uncertain right now if someone else will take over Con K. If so, I hope you will support them as much as you have supported me.
I do hope to see you all soon at cons or around town. Thank you!!!!

*Important Announcement*


We hope everyone is well and safe. We know things are crazy and scary for you right now. We are right there with you.


With that said:: We (the Con-Chairs) have discussed the best interests and safety for the attendees, guests and our staff. I have been in contact with our Guest’s agents. Since there is no guarantee that there will be flights out of London or Los Angeles, the agents can’t guarantee 3 of our guests will be here. So, they have rescheduled with us.

So, we know that we should POSTPONE Con K 2020!! We think it is the best thing for everyone. Since we are not sure how long this crisis will last, we have decided to move it to the Fall.

The new dates for Con K 2020 are Oct. 10th & 11th,2020!!! We will still be at the Holiday Inn in Huntsville. We hope everyone will join us then. If you have purchased a pass either for 2019 or 2020, the passes will still be good for the con. Also, if you have reserved a Vendor or Artist Alley table, your spot is still reserved..:)

See you in October 2020!!

The Charity we have Chosen is::

Hello Whovians,

I’ve got a special announcement for you all today. Con Kasterborous is proud to announce that our charity this year will be Hard Knocks Rescue and Training.

HKRT, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit dog rescue and training business. Founded in February 2018 after noticing an under served group of dogs in our community, our mission is focused on serving overlooked and last chance dogs. HKRT is “Doing what’s right, not what’s easy” by combining rescue, training, and community outreach programs to save as many dogs as we can.

Unlike other rescues HKRT is not focused on how many dogs they can get adopted but the quality of life for the dogs that come into the rescue. After the dogs go through rehabilitation a forever home is carefully selected. They know their dogs are a little tougher to love and handle than an average dog but they also know that it’s not impossible to find them a happily ever after of their own.

HKRT will be benefiting from our Silence Auction and they’ll have a table set up to take monetary donations as well.

Here is the link to their website and Facebook pages if you’re interested in learning more about them.

*** Guest Announcement***

***GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT***

Since you have been so patient… We are happy to announce that the talented Kelly Yates will join us for 2020!! We are excited for him to be with us again…

Kelly’s Bio:::

I currently work full-time at VF Jeanswear as a Graphic Designer, and illustrate comic books part-time. I’m probably best known for my work on Doctor Who comics for IDW Publishing and my creator-owned projects, MonstHer and Amber Atoms.

My passion for art, especially comic book art, stems from a family road trip out to California when I was 12-years old. On the way back, we stopped at Yellowstone National Park for the night and to my distress I quickly discovered they had no TV’s in the entire building. Luckily, the gift shop had a few comic books. The one that caught my attention was Cyrstar #6 with Nightcrawler on the cover. I have been reading comics ever since.

Skipping ahead to my college years, I was sitting through an extremely long, extremely boring lecture class, doodling on the side of my paper, when a friend leaned over and commented, “You ought to be an artist”. After a lot of prayer and soul-searching, I decided to switch degrees and pursue a 2-year degree in Commercial Art & Computer Graphics. So here I am years later and making a living at it.

Deciding to be an artist at 21 has been an adventure to say the least. I know many incredibly talented artists that have been drawing since they can remember, but since I started drawing so much later in life, I always feel like I’m playing catchup. That probably plays into my motivation to become a better artist with each illustration I work on.

So the adventure continues…
