What The Fur: Fairy Tales
May 17-19 2013
Registration and Hotel Reservations
There are now only two weeks left to pre-register for the convention! As of Midnight on April 16th registration will close until the beginning of the convention. This also means that as of midnight on the 16th we will no longer be offering the Patron level of membership. At the door, the prices for our Regular and Sponsor levels of membership will be going up by $5, so register as soon as you can! Just go to http://register.whatthefur.ca.
Also, the hotel will no longer accept reservations under the What The Fur room rates as of Midnight on the 16th, so if you haven’t already reserved your room at the Delta, now would be the time! There are still rooms left to be had, and everyone knows that staying in the hotel makes for an easier visit. Go to http://hotel.whatthefur.ca for details, and for the link to reserve online.
As above, Dealers registration will also close on the 16th. With the added space in our new Dealers Den there are still tables available, but they’re going fast. Make sure you have your spot by registering now! Also, we have added an option to purchase extra table space! Due to demand, you can now add 3-foot or 6-foot table spaces to your spot. If you have already registered your place, but want to add more room, just visit the EventFox registration site and add them to your registration. It’s that simple!
Art Show and the Charity Auction
If you have something you want to have on display, whether just for viewing or to have people bid on, our Art Show still has room left. There is information on the Art Show page of the website, and the panels are only $25 each until the 14th.
And if you have something you’d like to enter into the Charity auction, or something you’d like to provide to help us raise funds for our charity, please let us know! This year we will be adding a raffle area, so that you can buy tickets to bid on specific items without them being in the auction! But we’d like to have things donated to the cause! Just send us an email to email@example.com if you have any questions on what might be accepted.
The International Fursuit Hockey League is shaping up nicely! The referees are busy putting the details on the rules, but already we have teams chomping at the bit to face off against eachother! Right now we have teams of fursuiters from Montreal, from Boston, and from Toronto, with a possible fourth and fifth coming in soon!
Do you want to play? Sign up now by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up will also be available at the Registration desk at the convention.
Panelists and Presenters
We’re still open for ideas and for people who would like to help on the programming side of the convention.
If you have an idea for a panel, a workshop or a presentation, let us know! Remember that you don’t have to be on the panel to submit an idea, we just want to know what it is you’d like to see! But if you have the itch to help out by being on a panel, or you want to run a workshop, we’re very much open to that as well!
On Saturday evening, we will be starting our usual dance with a little bit of flair! In honour of our theme, we will be hosting a Masquerade Ball! So break out your bowties, your suits and dresses, and shine your shoes up! For the first portion of the dance, of course, masks are requested, whether you use just one, or put another over your fursuit.
Also, we’re still on the hunt for DJs for the dance! If you’re interested, send an email to email@example.com.
