News No Auchinawa Event in 2012
posted on 2012-02-16 08:30 EST
The Scottish anime convention Auchinawa made the following announcement on its facebook page:
We are very sorry to announce that unfortunately Auchinawa will not be able to run in 2012.
After a long and exhaustive search for suitable venues we were unable to find somewhere which would hold our required capacity within the constraints of our budget. We also looked at lower capacity venues, with a view to reducing our attendee numbers, but were still unable to find any locations we felt measured up to the standards and requirements of our attendees. Going forward, the committee have redoubled their efforts to secure a suitable venue for 2013.
In the meantime, we are also hoping to organise a smaller event or two this year to ensure that you don't all forget about us! Our events organiser is putting together the details as we speak, and we're hoping to have something to announce when the Auchinawa website goes back online towards the end of April 2012.
Once again, we can only apologise for being unable to run in full this year - we are as disappointed as you all are, but we will be doing our best to make sure that 2013 is the best Auchinawa yet!
