ZodiaCon debuts May; offers change from ?eSFuRPosted by GreenReaper on Mon 7 Feb 2011 - 13:38
Czech furs (along with a few Germans, Poles and Slovaks) intend to celebrate "the dawn of time" at a new event: ZodiaCon, to be held 20–22 May at the Hotel Emilka near Tanvald in the Czech Republic.
The price, 1400 CZK (~58€, US$79) – rising to 1600 on March 1 – includes two nights' accomodation and three meals a day. Sponsorship and dog permits are available. There are currently 65 attendees of a maximum 83.
The event provides an alternative to long-running local convention ?eSFuR, which is moving to a larger hotel with 145 beds. ZodiaCon's staff hope to provide more flexible topic-based programming tracks. Fortunately, local furs can enjoy both, as ?eSFuR will be held in July.
