Conifur registration deadline just five weeks away!
Just five weeks left to pre-register for Conifur Northwest at the low price of $40! Pre-registration must be received by September $12. Don't forget to reserve your hotel room. Hotel rooms must be reserved by Spetember 4 to get the discounted rate (that date is set by the hotel, we can't move it!) You can register for the convention on-line at www.conifur.org. You can reserve your hotel room at the Sheraton Tacoma/Tacoma Convention Center at (800) 325-3535. Don't forget to mention Conifur to get the discounted room rate!
Conifur Northwest is September 26-28, at the Tacoma Convention Center, in Tacoma, Washington. This year’s guests are “Grrrwolf,” artist extraordinarie, and Chuck Melville, artist, author, and editor.
Conifur needs sponsors! We've been able to keep the membership fees as low as they are thanks to the generosity of past Conifur sponsors. Keep this tradition alive! Sponsors receive various goodies (including a free con t-shirt). Every year some of the dealer's and artists donate additional goodies that are given out to the super sponsors who donate the most. Even more important than those rewards, is all the good karma you gain by helping out a worthy cause. Thanks!
Other news and deadlines
We are accepting submissions for the ConiFur Convention/Program Book for one more week! Send us your stories, your poetry, your artwork! August 15th is the deadline for submissions of creative material and for purchase of advertising space.

There are still dealer's tables available! Reservations and payments are coming in fast, now, so if you haven't reserved your table, do so right away! You can register at the Conifur website. If you have any questions, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're looking for panelists and presenters for the clinics/panel schedule. Our clinics are divided into roughly four tracks:
Literature (including writing, publishing, and stuff worth checking out)
Art (sketching, inking, drawing, and computer art)
Constructed Fur (costuming, plushies, puppets, and stagecraft)
Culture (including spirituality and socializing)
If you know someone who would be a good presenter for a clinic in one of these areas, please contact email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you at Conifur in September!
