1. From the Head MadHatters

The holidays are upon us and we are coming down to the wire. Only 2
months are left until we celebrate in style as "Furries in Wonderland".
Our grand experiment of a 5 day con is moving along nicely. We are
rounding out our events schedule and can assure every attended a new and
exciting experience. With a dash of workshops and a generous pinch of
social activities slowly simmered over 5 days, there will be a tasty treat
for everyone. So don't let Jack Frost nip you! Get your hotel and
convention reservations in soon. After that, sit back, take a sip of Egg
Nog in front of a warm fire next to that special someone or with your
friends and family, and share the season with each other. Spread the
cheer, friendship and fuzzles that the community knows how to do best. And
when all is said and done, make that New Years' resolution to be part of
something special this January 23rd.

Chairo and Aetobatus, your Mad Hatters for 2003.

2. Hotel Reservation Cutoff Date Announcements

Our room block is getting full and its time to remind folks of the last
date to get the convention rate. That date is Monday, January 6, 2003.
After that date we cannot guaranty the convention rate for you. If you
want to be placed into the Fursuit Area or Party Floor of the Hotel, we
need to receive your request by Dec 15, 2002.

3. Pre-reg Cutoff Date Announcement

Preregistration cutoff is rapidly approaching. January 6 is the final date
to preregister for FC2003 and to save that final $5 and more importantly,
avoid that at-con registration line. Not to mention, pre-registration
helps us plan accurately! Please help us help you by pre-registering for
the convention.

You can always register online via our website at:

4. Con Book Submissions Cutoff Date Extension

The Deadline for submitting materials for consideration to the FC2003
Convention Book has been extended by 10 days. December 10 is the final day
to submit something (Ads, Writing, or Artwork) for consideration in our
convention book. You can find the full guidelines at the following:

5. Final Call for Panels and Panelists

Its time to start to finalize the schedule. We still have room for more

included in the first edition that will be placed into attendees'
registration bags, we need to have them by January 6, 2003. You can email
any announcements to
