1. Further Confusion Picnic and Camp-out

Just as a reminder, the FC Camp-out is September 9th - 11th (this weekend!) at Anthony Chabot Regional Park Campground in the Oakland Hills. The cost is $5.00 per person per night, and $5.00 per vehicle per night.  Only those who register ahead of time will be allowed to camp.  Carpooling is also strongly encouraged since parking is very limited.  Likewise, campers must provide their own accommodations and food to the camp-out. The campsite we will be at is Lost Ridge.

All information, rules can be found at <>

Our annual Further Confusion picnic will also be held this weekend, at the traditional location of the Lake Chabot Regional park.
The picnic will be held on September 10th, starting at Noon, and running until 6 pm.  While there is a $5.00 fee to park inside the gates at Lake Chabot Park, admission to this event is completely free, and food and beverages will be provided!  However, feel free to bring your favorite picnic treats, games, and activities as well.  Fursuits are completely encouraged!  There will be a changing tent provided. We will be at the 'Turtle' site for the picnic.

Directions are as follows:

in Castro Valley on I-580 westbound, take the Strobridge Avenue exit.  Turn right on Strobridge, right on Castro Valley Boulevard, and left on Lake Chabot Road. The Lake Chabot Marina is about two miles ahead on the right. In Castro Valley on I-580 eastbound, exit at Redwood Road and go left, go left at Castro Valley Boulevard, right at Lake Chabot Road, and follow the directions above. From I-580 in San Leandro, exit at Fairmont Drive and go east (uphill). The marina entrance will be to the left at the bottom of the hill. (parking fee).

3. Convention book call out to artists and writers

Once again Further Confusion needs stories and artwork for our convention book.  Design and lay-out will begin soon, and the earlier you can send us work, the better. If you have any questions about submitting material, please check out the requirements and specifications on the convention Web site at <>

If you aren't an artist or writer yourself, tell your friends who are!

We are also considering relevant advertisements.

4. Furry Market Place spaces still available

While the Dealer Room is sold out, and the Waiting List is full, there's still some places left that you can purchase to sell your wares in. Head on over to the Furry Market Place page on the Further Confusion website for all the details and restrictions.  If you want to speed the process up a little, and you know for sure you are coming to the convention, with or without having a space to sell things, then go pre-register first. Doing so will make the whole purchase of a space go a whole lot faster.

See the Furry Market Place page on our website for more details : <>

5. Next Staff Meeting

Due to the FC Camp-out and Picnic the next there will be no meeting in September.

The next staff meeting will be October 15th, and we will have more details in our October newsletter.
