SoCal FurBQ Jun 21st Irvine Regional Park

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Its Time for the annual Fur-B-Q! It will be held on Jun 21st at the usual location in Irvine Regional Park. Many furrs attend this event every year, bringing tons of food and drink and merryment: Most of the Cats tend to love hanging around in the local low-hanging trees, many artists love drawing under the Shade of such trees, and the plentiful amount of Oxygen given off by said trees keeps everyone purring along quite happily.

When you get in, hang a right after paying your parking fee and there should be some signs set up on the display boards along the road that point to where we are. We will stake our claim at the traditional spot, between Parking Lots 9 and 10 as shown on the park brochure, which can be seen here.

Furry Weekend Atlanta changes date, hotel

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Furry Weekend Atlanta will not be held during the usual Valentine's Day weekend next year - instead, the fourth largest furry convention has been moved to March 19-22 for 2009, and presumably for all FWAs to come.[1] The change in dates was primarily due to space conflicts with a large cheering competition taking place in Atlanta during the same weekend.[2]

The convention has also changed hotels for 2009, switching from a two-year run with the Sheraton to move to the larger Hilton Atlanta hotel.
