VCON Hiatus

In May, 1993 the membership of VCON's parent corporation (Western Canadian Science Fiction Convention Committee Association) apparently dissolved the corporation which had been severely impacted by the 5-figure loss suffered by VCON 19. It voted to replace VCON with "something new". Subsequent VCONs were organized by the new West Coast Science Fiction Association.

For the next couple of years, there was no convention named VCON, but a series of one-day special events:

Convention Date
The Science of Murder March 19, 1994
The Science of Survival March 18, 1995
Science Fiction Saturday / EVCON May 27, 1995

In 1995, the membership voted to re-start VCON in 1996.
