Time Lord Expo Cancelled Just Weeks Before Event

After a good week of speculation, what some saw as inevitable has occurred — Dayton, OH based Time Lord Expo has officially been called off just two weeks before the con’s scheduled date. Convention organizer Patrick Baumgardner took to the con’s official Facebook page and announced the cancellation earlier today:

This doesn’t exactly come as a surprise to most people, as just a few days ago Doctor Who “Superstore” Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey announced they had been told to cancel any guest flights that they had booked for the con (as the store’s owners had gotten heavily involved with the con’s planning), and as a whole pulled out of the convention in response.

The main reason for the cancellation hasn’t been given, but we can make a few guesses. In the official post, Baumgardner said that refunds could immediately be requested, but asked that people wait until Friday evening to do so if possible. If anything screams “we’re out of money,” it’s someone asking you to wait to hit them up for money until what is, for many people, payday.

Update: Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey is organizing a free replacement event on Sunday, October 14th. Terry Molloy and Caitlin Blackwood will appear.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
