"When you can't walk, you crawl, and when you can't crawl, you find someone to carry you."

I think the time has come to admit that I'm not going to be able to plan and coordinate the Oklahoma Grand Shindig this year. I have been unable to find a suitable location in the Tulsa/ Broken Arrow area, and pleas for assistance in doing so have netted nothing concrete. I am working more this year, and just don't have the energy or desire to take this on alone anymore. A lot of work goes into planning this each year, a lot of time and a bit of my own personal finances, and I have been happy to do it for the past three years, but I'm not as active in the fandom as I once was, and my interests and focuses have changed.

I am certain that some of you will view this as a sudden but inevitable betrayal, and I am truly sorry, but I just can't do it this year. If someone else wants to step up and take over, I will put you in touch with Cedric and will give you information about what I have done in the past, and will even donate an item to the charity raffle, should you choose to have one, but I can not plan and coordinate the entire event myself this year.

Consider this notice that the Shindig is cancelled until further notice, and I appreciate all of you who have attended, donated, and assisted in the past years.

EDIT: Reposting or linking is fine. I didn't do any promotions for the Shindig this year since we didn't have a location, but I'm sure there will still be people that need to know this isn't happening this year, so feel free to spread the word. Thanks.
