FC2007: Fur Your Eyes Only - May Mission Briefings
Come celebrate the world of espionage with us in '007. Tuxedo clad spies,
evil-geniuses, femme fatales, mad scientists, super-weapons, and henchman
abound as Further Confusion delves into a world of anthropomorphic Spies,
Spooks, and Double Agents. With special themed events and panels, FC2007
will be a world where nothing is as it seems on first glance, with surprise
lurking around every corner.
In this briefing:

- FC2006 Charities Paid
- Online Hotel Reservations Available
- FC2007 Dealers Room and Furry Market Place Waiting Lists

FC2006 Charities Paid
We are also delighted to report that the charitable beneficiaries for
FC2006 have received the following funds: Wildlife Companions ($12,000)
Comic Book Defense Fund ($3,000). That's a new yearly record for FC and
two more worthy groups would be hard to find.
Online Hotel Reservations Available
Online Reservation for booking your hotel rooms is now available at the
We always run out of space - especially so for Double Rooms - so book
early. Not to mention it helps the con pay for itself just as much as your
registration fee does.
FC2007 Dealer's Room and Furry Market Place
In August, we will be selecting at random people from the Dealer's Room
waiting list to be offered 10 half-tables for FC2007. In order to be
included in the selection, you should have your waiting list form sent in by
August 1st, 2006. Please allow sufficient time for the USPS to deliver it
to us by that date. There will be a second round of random drawing from the
waiting list in November for any additional table space that is available at
that time. Further Confusion staff continue to work on a revised system of
space allocation in the Dealer's Room for FC2008, and will communicate this
once it has been finalized.
The first round of 10 Furry Market Place spaces will be sold on a first
come, first served basis also starting on August 1st, 2006. Those
interested will need to send in an application form by mail postmarked no
earlier than August 1st - any earlier postmarks will be placed at the back
of the list. The first round will end September 15th. No e-mail
applications will be accepted. The application form will be made available
on the website in June.
The second round of spaces in the Furry Market Place will be sold starting
in November, again first come, first served, and a third round (if spaces
are still available) will take place at-con. You should note that those who
missed a spot in the first round will NOT have their application
automatically carried over to the second round. The cost of the Furry
Market Place spaces is currently being finalized, and we will let everyone
know what this will be as soon as possible.
Application forms for space in the Dealer's Room and Furry Market Place, as
well as rules governing each area, can be found at
