Sorry for the late notice to those that plan their vacation early but Columbus in Darkness is not going to be hosting their normal Grand Elysium this year. We have decided this for a variety of reasons.
1. The cost: our expenses have been increasing yearly while our attendance has not been keeping up with this. There have been a variety of reasons for the drop in attendance but as we cannot continue to lose money yearly on an event.
2. Lack of coordinator support: Columbus' Grand Elysium has been a staple in OWbN for over 10 years and for at least the past two years we have had little to no coordinator support. To have national draw, you have to have national plot.
3. Competing events: Last year, we had Ecumenical Council 2 months before, the Gangrel Event 2 weeks before and then the Anarch Event 3 weeks after Grand Elysium.
We are planning on having an event. We are deciding on what that event will look like and when it will be best to host that.
Again, I am sorry for the lack of communication.
Let me know of any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your support in the past and hopefully in the future.
