GenCon was having some recent troubles with LucasFilm and it looks like those troubles are continuing:
Gen Con LLC announced today that it has filed for Chapter 11 protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the State of Washington. This action became necessary as a result of significant unforeseen expenses associated with attempts to expand its core business to encompass externally licensed events. Gen Con’s flagship show, Gen Con Indy, remains a vibrant, profitable event. Gen Con Indy will take place as scheduled August 14–17, 2008, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Here’s hoping the company can reorganize and get back on track. GenCon Indy will go on as scheduled this summer according to the press release. The Flames Rising crew has had a lot of fun at the convention over the years. Hopefully with many more yet to come.
