Welcome to SpokAnthro 2020!

May 11, 2020

Ringmaster Our Dearest Members,

We are saddened to inform you that SpokAnthro 2020 will not take place this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Your health and safety is and always has been our top priority.

In the next few months, Washington state will be going through different phases in reopening for some business and events. In that regard, our projected numbers would exceed the required limitations during these phases. We are happy to report our numbers for this year were looking quite good, and the only thing we can hope for next year is that we reach or exceed those numbers!

We are currently planning for this convention to happen next year and we would LOVE to see you there! Circus of Fluff will stay our theme next year and our GoH, Onnanoko, will still be with us! We still plan to be at the current hotel (dates are being finalized).

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and we hope to see you next year! For some more specifics, please keep reading:
 

Registration

For those who have already paid for pre-registration, we are happy to provide you with a few options!

Rollover: This will give you the opportunity to be registered and ready for next year. Save the stress, let us do the rest!
If you do not choose another option, this will happen by default.

Donation: If you'd like to help us out with the unrecoverable costs associated with having to cancel this year, you are more than welcome to donate your pre-registration. Good Karma points added!

Refund: If you are not sure if you can make it to next year or if you need all your resources in the current situation, we can process a refund for you. We hope we can see you again in future!

If you would like to donate your registration, or if you need a refund, you must contact registration@spokanthro.org by end of day, Sunday June 14th. If you will be rolling your membership over to 2021, you do not need to email us—we will roll your membership over to next year if we do not hear otherwise.

Dealers

For those of you who are dealers, you should have received an email about your current status. Your applications for the Dealers Den will be kept on file and reviewed late spring of 2021. Those individuals who will be selected will be notified shortly after that time. If you would like to withdraw your application, please contact us at dealers@spokanthro.org for further assistance.

Hotel

We would like to remind everyone that the hotel does not cancel your reservation automatically, so please be sure to cancel your reservation as soon as possible.
 

Wishing you all the best!
SpokAnthro Staff

Ringmaster Dear SpokAnthro Community,

We felt it important to address any concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus in relation to SpokAnthro. We have no plans to cancel or postpone SpokAnthro in regards to COVID-19, and are working at full speed to bring you our 2020 event this July.

On Friday, March 13, Washington Governor Jay Inslee issued a restriction on gatherings of 250 people or more in an effort to combat the spread of this virus. This restriction will be in place until the end of March. We are confident that this will not impact SpokAnthro, which is still 18 weeks away.

SpokAnthro is committed to working closely with the hotel on implementing preventative measures and precautions for the benefit of our attendees. We plan to release information on the best practices that you can follow to limit your exposure to and spreading of the virus in general, sometime before the convention. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will provide you with any relevant updates.

Thank you,
SpokAnthro Executive Staff

Welcome to the big top!

We'd like to give a big welcome to all of you at the Circus of Fluff! There will be plenty to see and do, and we'll have more of that to reveal later… but why don't we start with getting you all settled in? We're happy to announce that we will be returning to the Ruby River Inn for our second year–you can get all the details on making your reservation over on our hotel page.

Sponsor and Patron memberships are also now available through our registration page! If you were interested in one of our upgraded memberships, you can simply go through our registration system and select the upgrade you want. No muss, no fuss (and thank you for supporting us)!

Ohhhmigosh, an update!!!

Yes, we know–it's been pretty quiet here over the last few months. You may have already seen it, but if you haven't, SpokAnthro will be held on July 24-26, 2020! We're excited to be back, and looking forward to lifting the curtain on the show we've been putting together for you.

Now… you might notice that (at the time of this posting) the website still looks much the same as it did for 2019. Fear not, we've got a redesign in store for the site as well, it's just not quite ready yet.

Registration is OPEN! You can find our registration policies and code of conduct under the "Registration" button on the main menu!

If you have any questions, you can email registration@spokanthro.org.
