Odyssey Con 18 and the Future of Odyssey Con

As many have probably noticed by now, nothing has been posted about Odyssey Con 18.  After Odyssey Con 17, OCSI (the parent organization of Odyssey Con) and the concom have taken its time moving forward and trying to determine the best course of action after last year's convention.

Several of our key members have either decided to take some time away, move to the back seat, or otherwise break away from the convention for the time being.  This has left some vacancies we weren't certain we'd be able to fill.  Some of them we have been able to, while other positions still remain open.  We are still looking for volunteers for those positions.

Additionally we taken some time to talk about how we can retool our convention to bring the best possible event to our attendees.

Having lost a fair amount of time in doing all this, the future of Odyssey Con still remains with some doubts and we are in talks about how to proceed.  Our current options are:

While our committee debates this, we're opening ourselves up for input from the public.  A survey will be up shortly to get you, the con-going public's, opinion, either here on our website or on Facebook.

To all of you who have enjoyed our convention, and have supported our efforts, we thank you!
