    I swear, when I found out that there was going to be a mermaid convention in California, I lost my marbles! I am SO EXCITED. I've never actually been to a mermaid convention since that is unheard of in Arizona and well... the West Coast in general. I want to finally meet fellow mermaids and mermen who are as passionate about everything mer as I am.. if not more so!!

    I've always wondered why mermaids aren't more of a thing here! Hoping to hear more about this as it gets closer!!!!

    The Facebook page says the planning is on hiatus, it's almost March and this is supposed to be in June? I'm a little worried how this is going to turn out. =/

    Granted I'm not expecting it to be like Mermania but planning a convention does take time and quite a bit of preparation. Has anyone heard anything?

    Their website domain, " kelpstock.com ", has been released and is now for sale. Not a good sign

    [Edit: Ashton says she still has a fin in around California, even though she moved to TX! ]

    Mermaid Wesley, Ashton, and Selkish had indicated in this thread that they were involved in the planning. The tides have turned for Ashton and she has recently moved to Texas, so it would probably be too hard for her to be a part of a Kelpstock type event. Selkish has not been posting lately at this site. Mermaid Wesley is still very active posting to this site. If anyone would still like to see an event like this happen in SoCal, I would suggest they reach out to Mermaid Wesley to see if she'd like some help in planning for the future.

    I think one thing to keep in mind is it would be very hard to get insurance for an event if there was any activity on a beach or in ocean water. Insurance balks at anything where swimmer safety would be difficult to promise. So a very important part of a mer event would be deciding upon a place that has a swimming pool (or pools) that would be perfect for the posing/preening/swimming parts of the event.

    Hugs to all!

    The hotel del Coronado is right next to the beach has one pool next to it and two others elsewhere on the premises. It even has its own private part of the beach. I wish I had heard about this earlier I would really love this to happen.

    Also that hotel doesn't have a ban on mermaid tails and even has a exercise class with them in one of their pools! They also sell the tails, and rent them. They said they don't mind if you bring your own tail, so I know they don't have a tail ban in their pools.

    I should update here I suppose.

    This event is on indefinite hold.

    We all have human jobs and responsibilities to worry about that are keeping us from working towards this. HOPEFULLY the Kelpstock team will be hosting smaller meetups this supper, testing the waters for this event happening in the future.

    We appreciate all your enthusiasm, and hopefully this will come together at some point in the future.
