Ad Astra and FilKONtario the same weekend in 2010

As if this wasn’t crazy enough, it’s just been confirmed that Toronto will have two of its SF cons on the same weekend next year! Both Ad Astra, the general con, and FilKONtario, the filking con, are April 9 through 11, 2010. Unbelievable!

For the record, it’s Ad Astra that changed its date, resulting in the conflict. At FilKONtario, someone opined that the conflict would lead to a reduction in Ad Astra’s attendance, rather than FilKONtario’s — and I suspect that’s probably right. Still, although I had a blast as special guest at FilKONtario this year, I’ll be at Ad Astra next year — but, really, no one should have to make this choice; it’s just nuts.
