What The Fur April News
Time ticks away. One second per second, moving forward and not stopping. It's a drawback to not actually having a time machine. And as time moves forward, the future becomes the present, and then the past. But when something is coming on the temporal horizon, you have to get yourself ready to seize the moment. And the time for seizing is now. Or will be now. Or will have has to be...

Le temps s’écoule... Seconde par seconde, allant de l’avant sans pouvoir être arrêté. Il est problématique de ne pas avoir de machine à voyager dans le temps. Avec le temps qui s’écoule, le futur devient le présent, puis le passé. Mais quand un événement apparaît sur l’horizon temporel, il faut être prêt à l’accueillir. Et il est maintenant temps. Ou il sera maintenant temps. Ou il était temps plus tard…

The time is almost here!

What The Fur kicks off in 2 weeks! That's 14 days! That's... umm... not a lot of hours (relatively)!

Tonight at midnight we close pre-registration so we can get to work putting together the envelopes for everyone. So if you haven't yet registered, go and do it now! Otherwise you'll have to wait until the convention itself to register.

What The Fur? Fairy Tales
May 17-19 2013
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

How can we let a good thing end so soon?
The answer: We can't. The masses have spoken, and so the decision has been made to keep pre-registration open for another 2 weeks! Well, nearly. We will be keeping pre-registration going until Friday, May 3rd at Midnight. But this will be your final chance to pre-register.
This also means the last few tables in the Dealers Den are up for grabs too!

And the good news keeps on coming!
The Hotel has informed us that it will continue to accept room reservations at our convention rate so long as they have the rooms available in the hotel! So if you're still doing the math, or just about missed the deadline, don't worry! There's still room! But the offer is subject to change without notice, so don't delay too long!

Looking for something to do?
Do you want to be on programming at What The Fur? It's not too late to suggest a panel or workshop.
Or you can look at our current panel listings - what we already have planned - and sign up for a panel or two.

Are you getting anxious?
We might be a few weeks late, but fairy tales don't tend to take place in the winter months. Despite the snow, ice, and storms, we're hard at work prepping for the best What The Fur ever
So enjoy your mug of cocoa, put on your favourite slippers (ruby are allowed), and read on, my friends

Once upon a time…
…there was a mountain. But this wasn’t just any mountain. This mountain was royal. It’s wooded slopes were the home to all manner of creatures. After many years, the trees gave way to the expansion of a kingdom. Giant buildings made of shining glass were erected, roads and causeways were created to aid in the delivering of goods and services. But the animals still remained, and thrived. Annually, folk from other kingdoms come to visit the Royal Mountain. They come from lands near and far for one purpose: To celebrate.
The pumpkin carriages are parked, the orchestra has struck the first note, and the banquet is awaiting. What The Fur 2013 is ready to receive you to our Fairy Tale kingdom! We’re pleased to announce that our fourth convention is building up nicely, with the staff rallying their elves and fairy godmothers to help.

It's almost here!
There's less than a week left to pre-register for What The Fur, so what are you waiting for? We've even decided to keep the Pre-Registration open until the 25th. Why? Because we like you all that much!
So pre-register now, because as of midnight on Friday the 25th of May, we close the door to pre-registering on the website, and you'll have to register at the door. We won't turn you away as we have plenty of room, but the price will be a little higher. So be sure to register now! There are also rooms left at the hotel! So long as you register at the hotel using the What The Fur code (which is, easily enough, What The Fur), you're guaranteed to get the convention room rate. We'll try and have everyone on the same floors, so if you haven't, book your room soon.


Il reste moins d'une semaine pour vous préinscrire pour What The Fur, alors qu'attendez-vous? Nous avons décidé de garder la pré-inscription ouverte jusqu'au 25. Pourquoi? Parce-que nous vous aimons tous autant que ça!
Alors préinscrivez-vous maintenant, parce qu'après minuit le vendredi 25 mai, nous fermons les portes de la préinscription sur le site web, et vous devrez vous inscrire au guichet. Nous n'allons pas vous refuser puisque nous avons plein de place, mais le prix sera un peu plus haut. Alors assurez-vous de vous inscrire maintenant!
Il reste également des chambres à l'Hôtel! Tant que vous vous inscrivez à l'Hôtel, en utilisant le code What The Fur (qui est, facilement, What The Fur), Il vous est garanti d'avoir le tarif de convention pour la chambre. Nous allons tenter d'avoir tout le monde au même étage, alors si vous ne l'avez pas encore fait, réservez votre chambre prochainement.

Halloween Dance Party! [Near Syracuse NY]
OK, so you were going to do something lame this year... OR the same ol thing you do every year...

WELL get excited!

Because There is going to be an EPIC Dance Party in my new barn on Saturday the 29th, rain or shine, or even snow!
There will also be a Bonfire!

It is totally private, and we can be as loud and crazy as we want for as long as we want.
Maybe you remember the August party a year ago? this is going to be better!! SO your coming right?

Same rules apply :
everyone is welcome
NO DRUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (someone didn't get this last year)
No weapons
If you have dogs, let me know way in advance
No drama
Bring a sleeping bag and your bathroom stuff if your going to stay. I have crash space for maybe 12 comfortably, but we could accommodate more.

Be advised: I don't have internet, and I get pretty bad cell reception. It is a party about being with friends, having a good time, and being completely free to express yourself any way you want (except for the drugs and weapons parts...) AND DANCING to Electronica, house, trance, jump style. Oh did I mention DANCING in Fursuit? We have over 1000W of audio power! - I'll have some big fans

There may be a Mall fursuit run doing the day also, If we get interest, I will take my 40' Class A RV down there, so we have a 'stylin place to change.

I will provide drinks and food, donations will be appreciated though!

Please RSVP! I will provide directions etc. The place is 1 hour travel time north of Syracuse NY a few miles off of Rt 81.

What The Fur Presents...
Zombie Apocalypse: Night of the Furry Dead
June 3-5 2011
Montreal, QC

A month ago we had a communication from our programming team. It covered many topics, but not everything was included
Now we present you with the rest of the news. The rest of the vital information that you all need to know. As the date that our scientists have predicted would be the launch of the apocalypse gets closer, we at What The Fur realize that many bits of information may get lost, or misconstrued.

Have no fear: We know. We assure you that the Zombie Apocalypse is real, and is happening. The undead furries will take over the island of Montreal… if you let them.

In this briefing:
1) Is chocolate a cure?
2) Can music soothe the souls of the undead?
3) Dealer Room and Art Show Status
4) How to distract Zombies! (or How I Ran A Panel at WTFur)
5) State of the hotel
6) Registration news

What The Fur: November News

What The Fur
June 3-5, 2011
The infection is spreading. It starts with a vague hunger, something is missing deep inside. Something is needed. After that comes the longing, the deep want for something to fill the void. Twitching sets in eventually, muscles moving of their own accord. Soon, those infected begin to move, infecting others and spreading the desire, the hunger. Soon a few of the infected gather together. And then a few more. Soon a hoard descends on the city, spreading the infection to anyone they come into contact with.
And that, boys and girls, is how a convention is started.  Welcome to 2011; the year of the Apocalypse. The year that Montreal will fall under the teeming masses of furries.
What The Fur is proud to present: Zombie Apocalypse: Night of the Furry Dead
In This Issue:
1. Guests Of Honour
2. Hotel Info
3. Pitch in and run something!
4. Artwork & Stories Wanted!
5. Register Cheap Before March 13th!
6. Dealers! Artists! Have we got a deal for you!

What The Fur 
3 au 5 juin 2011

L’infection se propage. Elle commence avec une faim étrange, quelque-chose manque, à l’intérieur de soit. On ressent le besoin de quelque-chose. Cet après que s’en vient la lancinante, profonde envie de quelque-chose pour combler ce vide. On ressent alors des spasmes, les muscles bougent d’eux mêmes. Bientôt, ceux qui sont infectés commencent à bouger, infectant les autres et propageant ce désir, cette faim. C’est alors qu’une poignée d’infectés se réunissent... et d’autres se joignent à eux. Sous peu, une horde envahi la ville, développant l’infection sur quiconque qui entre en contact avec eux.
Et ceci, Mesdames et Messieurs, est comment une convention débute. Bienvenue à WTF 2011: l’année de l’apocalypse. L’année où Montréal va tomber sous les masses de furries.
What The Fur est fière de présenter l’Apocalypse des Zombies: La Nuit des Morts Furries

Dance party / bonfire BE THERE!!!
Saturday night/ Sunday, Mannsville NY - about 1 hour south of Kingston

PandraPowered / mixes from by BBF! Party like Tim Duru! High probability of fursuit dancing (at least I will be!) I'll have some big fans to keep cool.

16 x 24 mostly enclosed dance floor! I plan to put cardboard over the whole shop area...

Lots of wood to have a very large bonfire also. Costumes / fursuits of any kind are encouraged!

Crash space in the house, on the dance floor if we actually stop... or in my 40' RV.

Food/drink will be provided - post with special requirements. Anticipating Dinner/ breakfast / snacks. I will try to find a hoard of glowsticks also.

My place is VERY private and anything goes except: No violence, No drugs, no alchohol, no smokes (smokes outside only)

If you have dj lights, speakers amps etc - bring it! I have basic stuff, but should have enough power to make it VERY loud.

I have a fenced guest dog yard available - please notify if you plan on bringing your dog / pets.

email takatha@msn.com for directions and phone number.

EVERYONE is welcome!
