In yet more convention news

Though by all accounts, this year’s ConMisterio was a big success in terms of social networking and the like (as was the inaugural event in 2005) it didn’t do so great economically – so there won’t be one held next year, according to the event’s organizers.

In an email sent out to this year’s attendees, organizer Karen Meschke reports “although ConMisterio II showed increased attendance, and attendees enthusiastically received both years, the convention still has not shown a profit.  The staff has decided they cannot continue at this time, and is regretfully retiring the name ‘ConMisterio.’  The entire staff of volunteers of would like to thank the mystery community for their gracious support and encouragement the past two years.”
