happen to you!

Pre-register now for only $45!


2.  Furry Market Place

The surf is still up for the Furry Market Place... but only a little bit
longer as only a few spaces are left. So, if you are interested in being a
vendor in the Further Confusion 2009 Furry Market Place, go over to
<> and grab
the PDF of the application form. Print it out, fill it out and send it in
to the address on the form along with US$65.00 and grab your spot before
they are all gone. There are less than a handful left! And yes, that
price INCLUDES your full membership to the convention.

3.  Dealer Room Waiting List

While the Dealer Room is still full, the holidays are traditionally the
time that we see a few cancellations here and there as people figure out
if they are really going to be able to make it out in January. So now
might be a good time to get on the waiting list. To get on the waiting
list go to <> and download
the application form for a table. Print it out, fill it out and send it in
to the address on the form, but WITHOUT any payment. This will get you on
the waiting list.

We will select randomly from ALL applications on the waiting list when we
have cancellation. It is NOT first-come, first served on the waiting
list. And those selected will receive a table offer by E-MAIL, so make
sure that the e-mail address you include on the form is one you check
regularly. Also, you will only have 10 days (or LESS if we are in the last
couple of weeks before the con when an offer goes out) to respond back to
that e-mail.

And lastly, we will STOP accepting new people onto the Waiting List on
December 15th, 2008. Any applications received after that date will NOT
be considered if a table opens up.

4.  Hotel

Just a reminder as we start to get closer to the convention. If you are
not going to be able to join us this coming January or have ended up
sharing with another attendee, please go ahead and cancel your room
reservations as early as possible so as to free up space for others.

5.  Fursuit Badge Submission

If you have a fursuit, are pre-registered, and need a fursuit badge,
here's what to do. Before January 1st, 2009, send a picture of your fursuit
to and include the following
information in the email:

- Your real name
- The fursuit name
- Your membership badge number

The file can be any standard picture format (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, etc.) at
300 dpi with a usable area of 450 by 600 pixels.

The first fursuit badge is free (though a donation to the convention
would be appreciated), while subsequent badges are $5 each.

Photographs for fursuit badges will also be taken at the convention.
Please see the times that will be posted at the Registration Desk for the
hours this will be offered.

If you are not sure that you have registered, to contact Registration
