Fall 2014 Newsletter
Happy October everyone! We here at KuroNekoCon hope you’re all doing fantastic! Now that we’ve all had a couple months to collect our thoughts, here’s an update of what our convention staff have been up to, as well as what you can start looking forward to over the course of the next year.
To kick things off, 2014 has brought us our best convention yet, with our largest turnout for attendees. There were a whopping 1,400 of you that turned out to join us and our guests Josh Grelle, David Vincent, Natalie Hoover, and Zack Davisson! Thank you so much to each and every one of you for coming downtown to join us, we would not be able to put on such an amazing show every year without your support! Now that you’ve had some time to reflect on your time at KuroNekoCon 2014, please leave us some feedback through our website! Tell us what we did well, what could be improved, who and what you’d like to see next year, or anything else you think we should know for KNC 2015!
As for the rest of 2014, we’ve already got some exciting things going on. To start, KuroNekoCon and the Comic Book Shop in Northtown Mall are teaming up to bring cosplay contests back to the mall on a regular basis! As some of you may have heard, the first contest was held on October 11th, and we’d like to thank those of you who turned out, you all looked fantastic! Be sure to check out Otaku Cat’s facebook page, or the KuroNekoCon Google+ for photos from the event!
Next up we’ve got a Halloween event happening in conjunction with Black Wolf Gaming Center! This is starting in the afternoon on October 25th, so come out and join us! There will be a costume contest, video games, tournaments, and other festivities (including prizes!). We hope to see you there!
Also coming up is PAC Con! If you’re planning to attend, come say “Hi” to us at our table in the vendor’s hall! We look forward to seeing your awesome faces there! A little further in the future, January to be exact, we will be hanging out at a table at Newcon PDX in Portland. So, if you’re in the area come check us, and Newcon PDX, out!
Last but definitely not least, we have our dates for KuroNekoCon 2015! We look forward to seeing you August 1st and 2nd!
Stay tuned for further updates, as well as some new and exciting changes to our newsletters!

Thank you from KNC
The staff of KNC want to thank all of the volunteers, guests, exhibitors, artists, and sponsors that helped make this year possible. Most of all we would like to thank all of the attendees who supported us by coming to KNC 2014. You're the reason we host this convention, and we couldn't come together to share our interests without all of you. We are already hard at work coming up with new ideas and better ways to improve next year’s convention.
Our attendance count for this year, not including staff, volunteers, exhibitors, or guests, was 1300 attendees! A whopping 50% growth from last year’s 850. Including everyone who was present at the convention, we breached 1450 people.
We also want to thank all of you who donated to any of the charitable causes at this year’s convention. Thanks to you KNC raised 130 lbs of food for Second Harvest Inland Northwest during the convention. In addition, the Klingon Assault Group raised a total of $431 for North Idaho Hospice, a non-profit Hospice. They would also would like to thank Sunken Treasure Games, Cat of All Trades, and Spooky Maroon Hats for their donations to KAG for use in a future fundraiser.
