R.I.P. Oklacon

Earlier this week, the furry world received notice that Oklacon would be canceled indefinitely. Oklacon staff reported Roman Nose State Park denied the con's permit for 2015 due to three idiots who got drunk at the previous year's event and had sex in the middle of the campground. Plans to move to another state park (or any state park in Oklahoma) were foiled when someone linked the con to the illegal activity.

I attended Oklacon in 2011, a few weeks after being laid off from a temporary (nightmare) job. In addition to seeing certain furries again and seeing/meeting others for the first time, I got to see Rhubarb The Bear's musical "Julie Bunny Must Die" and attend my third Bucktown Tiger concert. The 9- to 10-hour drive through southeastern Colorado and western Oklahoma had long stretches of boredom at times, including some road construction delays on U.S. 287. However, the fun times I had at Oklacon more than made up for that. KRCC's fall membership drive partially coincided with Oklacon, so that and a lack of money kept me from returning to the con again.
