We were confident that Nashcon 2020 would happen going into June. We had moved into the Nashville mayor’s phase 3, expected to go to phase 4 in July, and no restrictions by August. Instead we have moved back to phase 2 and at this point there is no way we will get to a phase that will allow a group our size to meet.
So with all that said we are sad to announce that Nashcon 2020 has been canceled.
We want to thank everyone that stuck with us; Vendors, Tournament Directors, the numerous folks that have signed up to run games, and a bunch of gamers that have preregistered.
The hotel is working with us and we are already planning for 2021. Emails will be sent out to everyone that has preregistered, and we will begin refunding all preregistered passes and all of our vendors on Monday 7/13/2020.
So now we start looking forward to 2021. With all this extra time to paint and work on terrain we should have some fantastic games next year!
Pre-paid Attendees will be eligible for a refund/credit under the following circumstances:
If Nashcon is cancelled due to government restrictions, all pre-paid Attendees will receive a full refund.
If Nashcon proceeds but a pre-paid Attendee cannot attend due to restrictions local to the exhibitor, they will receive a full refund.
If Nashcon proceeds but a pre-paid Attendee chooses not to attend due to medical concerns regarding COVID 19, they will receive a full refund.
If you are entering a tournament you do not need to purchase a weekend pass.
The Con within a Con
Johnny Con is an annual gathering of fans of the rules and games of the late John Hill, with the focus on his famous set of ACW rules “Johnny Reb”. We have recently been getting together every year as part of Nashcon and if you are interested in playing or learning these fantastic rules there is no better place to do it!
Most of these game masters were original play-testers, developers and designers of “Johnny Reb” and this is a great chance to come out and play with some of the guys that were in John Hill’s gaming group and helped develop “Johnny Reb” into what it has become over the years. This is a group of friendly gamers that enjoy teaching the rules to others, so no worries if you’ve never played before....you will be welcomed!
