<< Guests of Honor for 2007 Announced >>

Morphicon is proud to announce our Guests of Honor for 2007.

Steve Plunkett has been involved with furry since 1993, and has attended over 30 furry and furry-related conventions. He has been a staff member with Morphicon as the director of our Variety Show for the past three years, and staff at Midwest FurFest and Further Confusion. He is most well-known for advancing the art of puppetry within furry fandom. More recently he has started working with fursuit constriction. Even though he's "one of our own", we felt this honor was overdue, and we're very pleased to name him as a GoH.

Summer Jackson is a popular furry artist who has appeared in numerous furry publications, including Gallery, Yarf, and Furrabian Nights.

Kitt Foxx is a furry artist and an accomplished costumer, currently living in California. He was also the winner of our t-shirt contest last year!

We'll have more information on Summer and Kitt in an upcoming release.

<< Morphicon 2006 Free Fall Picnic! >>

Once again, our annual picnic returns! Come celebrate the beginning of our fourth convention year and stuff yourself with delicious food.

When: Sept. 2 (Saturday), 10am at Sharon Woods.
Details: Sirloin burgers, hot dogs, pork chops, sodas, and sides will be provided free courtesy Morphicon, but feel free to bring your favorite side dishes if you like. The con will occupy a shelter, and provide the fire.

(Trickster notes: it's also much easier to use this year!)

Dealers tables are also available. Contact morphicon.dealers AT gmail.com if you're interested in being a dealer. Prices are comparable to last year, so tables are cheap and won't last long!

It should say that Steve Plunkett was a staff member (and founder) at Midwest Furfest, not Mephit Furmeet. (I get those two names confused at 3 am...)
