Morphicon 2006: "The Food Chain"
May 5-7 at the Radisson Columbus-Worthington

Furtopia's Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund

Despite a bit of rain, Morphicon's Free Fall Picnic was a great success. However, thanksgiving for our bounty this month comes at the expense of realizing that there are others who are less fortunate. Due to the recent disaster in the US, many are in dire need of basic requirements we often take for granted.

WhiteShepherd, administrator of Furtopia and Board member for Morphicon Corporation, has set up a relief fund for furries who have been devastated by the storm and contacted staff for emergency assistance.

The relief fund is accepting monetary donations, pledges of emergency shelter, and clothing for displaced and needy furs. Furtopia's parent organization is a 501(c)(3) organization, so you may be entitled to deduct monetary contributions from your taxes.

For more information, please see the forum:

Furtopia and Morphicon thank you for your support of those in need.

Morphicon Dealers Den Slots Open

Morphicon has extended invitations to dealers from 2005, and now the Dealers Den is open for new dealers. The cost for a dealer's membership is still cheap, at $45. We try to keep our den small enough that the artist to attendee ratio is favorable for dealers who need to make a profit from sales.

To this end, space in the den is extremely limited. See morphicon.org/2006/dealers.htm for more information on what it means to be a dealer at Morphicon. If you're thinking of being a dealer for our 2006 convention, please contact <dealers AT morphicon.org> immediately.
