I’m proud to announce the Western Pennsylvania Furry Weekend, http://www.wpafw.org, is being held Columbus Day weekend, October 6-8, 2006, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This year’s “Featured Artist” is the renowned Shawntae Howard, writer and illustrator for the popular “Extinctioners” comic book. http://www.extinctioners.com
The event staff and I are continuing to host this event, now in its seventh year, and inviting furs from New York, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey as well as our friends north of the border in Canada, and of course, Pennsylvania. Building on the successes of our past events we’ve adjusted our registration structure and secured a 400 square foot meeting room at the Comfort Inn Pittsburgh North for our Friday Furry Social and for our Saturday Night Prowl and Growl. By hosting these events at the hotel we hope to provide a more centralized weekend experience and provide more appeal to securing a hotel room for our guests.
Event Pre-Registration is now OPEN!! Registration for the Western PA Furry Weekend covers the Friday Furry Social, Fur-b-que and Prowl and Growl on Saturday.
Pre-registration begins now and runs until Friday September 23, 2006.
• Basic level Pre-registration is $15. (Gets you into the Friday Furry Social, Fur-b-que and Prowl and Growl on Saturday.)
• Supporter level Pre-registration is $20. (All of the above plus front line privilege for food at the Fur-b-que, five Charity Raffle tickets, and other swag to be determined.)
Lodging arrangements have been made with the Comfort Inn Pittsburgh North, just off PA Rt. 28 and PA Turnpike Exit 48, in Harmarville, PA. The Western PA Furry Weekend has secured a block of 20 rooms for both Friday and Saturday nights at a flat rate of $69.99 + tax.
The staff and I would also like to announce our Furry Weekend Charity is "Animal Friends," Pittsburgh's only no-kill animal shelter. Last year we raised nearly $400 towards this worthy cause. If you can help by making a donation of original goods or services please visit the event website and send an e-mail to Akirashima at charity
This short message by no means conveys all the information available on this year’s event. I encourage you to visit the Western PA Furry Weekend website at http://www.wpafw.org for pre-registration, programming and activities, and lodging just to name a few. I also invite you to sign up for the Furry Weekend Forums where you can get the latest information on the event, pose questions and suggestions, and hook up with your friends for room and ride shares.
So mark your calendars and register now to join us in the beautiful autumn clad foothills of the Allegheny Valley and see friends old and new. The Western Pennsylvania Furry Weekend, October 6th, 7th & 8th, 2006!!
