What The Fur kicks off in 2 weeks! That's 14 days! That's... umm... not a lot of hours (relatively)!

Tonight at midnight we close pre-registration so we can get to work putting together the envelopes for everyone. So if you haven't yet registered, go and do it now! Otherwise you'll have to wait until the convention itself to register.

The lights are being lit, the fires are being stoked, and the grandiloquent statement is ready for release. So pay attention, and pay that chap who let you borrow his datascope to read this missive.

What The Fur: A Steam-Powered Celebration
May 23-25 2014 - Montreal, Quebec, Canada
www.whatthefur.ca

Lodgings (Hotel News)
As from our previous messages, the hotel has sold out of rooms with two double beds. But there are still rooms with King beds available! And even suites where you have a kind and a double-sofa bed! So if you’re still looking to book a room, there are options available.
Also, the Sheraton has graciously extended the room reservation dates to May 6th. That gives you two weeks from today to reserve your rooms in the hotel at our rate. After that date, we can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to get the WTFur room rates.
http://whatthefur.ca/hotel/hotel.php

Room and Ride Shares
If you missed our small messages over the last few weeks, we have added a page to our website for room and ride shares. It is a place where people can post their info if they are looking to share a room with someone, looking to carpool to the convention, or have spaces in their rooms or cars to share. People are coming from all over, so if you want to offer space, or want to barter for a space, that’s the place to do it! http://whatthefur.ca/hotel/room-ride.php

Registration
With the extension of the hotel dates, we’ve decided to also extend the pre-registration deadline. That means you have two more weeks to register for the convention and save yourself a little bit of money in the process! And though our Regular and Sponsor levels will be available at the door, the Patron level will not be.
2014 T-shirts will also not be available after pre-registration ends! They are available as an add-on to your registration, or with a Sponsor or Patron membership.
http://whatthefur.ca/registration/registration.php

Charitable actions (and auctions)
Every year, What The Fur raises charity donations and provides them to the Ecomuseum Zoo. The Ecomuseum zoo’s operations are not subsidized. They are covered by admissions and other revenues, whereas the renewal and development of its infrastructures depends primarily on donations and fundraising activities. What The Fur has been a proud sponsor since 2010, raising over $9000 to date. If you have a little spare change (those Twoonies weigh a lot in your pockets and purses), toss it into the charity bucket!
Also, What The Fur holds an auction, where proceeds also are donated to the Ecomuseum. If you are an artist or one of our dealers, please consider putting something into our art show for our charity auction. Even if you’re just attending the convention, and you think you have something you’d like to put in our auction, we’ll gladly add it to the list! Just bring it with you to the convention! (Americans: Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback are like money around here!)
http://whatthefur.ca/information/charity.php

Programming
What The Fur strives to provide everyone with one of the best convention experiences available, offering a cozy, friendly atmosphere. But we like giving people something to do and something to learn as well! And we could never do that without help from you! We’re still accepting offers to run workshops and panels, to sit on group discussions, or even to participate in some of our events! If you have something you’d love to share, teach or show, let us know! http://whatthefur.ca/events/programming1.html

Dance your heart out
Saturday won’t just be the day we all wait for the dance to start. We’ll be hosting our first ever Dance Competition! And we’d like to hear from you if you want to enter! This goes for fursuiters and non-suiters alike.. We want to know if you’ll be participating, and if so, and you have a particular piece of music in mind, let us know so we can get things ready! Shoot us an email to dance@whatthefur.ca to let us know.
And then, later in the evening, we will start out our dance with a Chronographic Reception, our Steampunk-Themed Masquerade ball, so break out the Bowlers and braces (but please, leave your bigger clockwork guns at the door). Then it will move on to the dance everyone craves.
Are you looking to perhaps entertain your fellow con-goers with musical magic? Then you're in luck! We're still taking applications for DJs for our dance! If you're thinking of being a DJ, we just need a little bit of information from you. To make sure we can select DJs that fit, not only with the con but with each other, we'd like to know what kind of music you would like to play. To that end, please fill in the form on our Dance page, and we'll get to making our selections!
http://whatthefur.ca/events/dance14.html

Help make it better for everyone
Like mentioned above, we couldn’t do this without you. We do this to put smiles on faces, and sometimes we work tirelessly to make that happen, but the end result is always worth it. If you have some time to give, let us know. We’ll happily welcome you to our volunteer team. Just send us an email to volunteers@whatthefur.ca, or fill in the form on the website to let us know you’d like to help. We need wranglers and referees, gophers and guides, help with setup and teardown. There’s no lack of opportunity. As well, we’ll be trying to toss a few rewarding things your way, like early exclusive access to the Dealers Den and some nice, front-row seats at the events.

Rooms are going quickly!

The hotel has now been sold out of rooms with 2 double beds! But don’t you worry!
There are still rooms with a single King bed available, and if you need room for a third person in the room just leave them a note that you want one of the sofa-beds (subject to availability).
But act quickly to make sure you have a room at the Sheraton!

===================================================
Les chambres partent rapidement!

L’hôtel n’a plus de chambres avec deux lits doubles disponibles. Mais ne vous inquiétez-pas!
Il reste toujours des chambres avec un lit King de disponibles et si vous avez une troisième personne dans votre chambre, laissez une note dans votre réservation que vous aurez besoin d’un sofa-lit (sujet à la disponibilité).
Mais agissez rapidement afin de vous assurer d’avoir une chambre au Sheraton!

What the Fur is in two months! Held in the beautiful Sheraton airport hotel in Dorval, and with a Steampunk theme, it promises to be an excellent event.

We still have spaces available in the Dealers Room! Are you an artist? A crafty person? An author? Are you a not-furry-but-still-steampunk type of vendor? Do you sell cool stuff at cons or craft shows or other such events? If so, please consider adding WTFur to your roster! Visit http://www.whatthefur.ca/registration/dealers.php for more info and to register.

Don't want to spend the whole weekend vending? You also have the option of Artist Alley! For this, you need a regular registration for the con.http://www.whatthefur.ca/registration/registration.php

Just want to have fun, socialise, sit in on informative panels? You can do that. Got art to show off and maybe sell? Get an art show panel. Got something to teach? Contact our programming and see what panels you can join or propose your own!

What the Fur is a fun, friendly con for all ages. You don't have to be furry, you just have to have an open mind and want to have some fun.

Come to WTFur! http://www.whatthefur.ca/

First, we would like to thank our friends at Furnal Equinox for an amazing weekend! Nothing but fun was had!

Now, there are just a bit over two months left until What The Fur takes to the stage. We’ve oiled the gears and started cranking up the boilers. So here’s a bit of news to keep you primed and ready.

Registration is only open until April 16th from the website. If you want to pay a lower rate, want a T-shirt for this year, or just want to show a little bit of support, go to our registration page and let us know you’re coming! And remember: We don’t need you to pay right away. After registering on the site, we’ll send you an invoice from PayPal, but if you’d rather, you can also pay for your registration via Interac Email transfer (from most Canadian banks), or in person at Montreal events or even at the door! But keep in mind that time is running out!

Similarly, the hotel is still open for reservations, and we still have room left, but don’t wait too long! The rooms are starting to run out, and we want to make sure that everyone coming to What The Fur has a place to stay. But remember that reserving a room at the hotel doesn’t register you for the con, and nor does registering reserve you a room. If you have any questions, just let us know and we’ll see what we can do!

Lastly, we couldn’t do this without your help. From Running workshops, sitting on panels, volunteering your time to help out, even providing what you can for our charity. So help out where you can! Let us know if you want to volunteer your time to be one of our volunteers, to run a panel or workshop, or simply to donate. Every little bit helps.

What The Fur is proud to provide you all with announcements of all types! We're now comfortably settled with things that we can reveal to you our grand plan for 2014!

Dates
We've had to get a little creative, but we've got our dates now set. What The Fur will be taking place on the weekend of the 23rd to 25th of May 2014.

Venue
After many trials and tribulations, we are happy to say that we've found our new home! In 2014 the Sheraton Montreal Airport will be our new location.
Our new home is now outside of the down town core, which means that yes, you are being taken further away from the wonderful restaurants that you've grown to love over the last four years. But fret not! There are many restaurants just to the south of the hotel, and you're closer to the West Island (which, in our opinion, has several superior eateries).
Rooms at the hotel will be $125 per night for a two-double bed room, no matter if you're four people in the room or not! Parking will be extra, but it's much less expensive than down town. And, as a bonus, if you want to come in early or stay a little later around the convention to see Montreal, we've managed to get a deal where you can stay in the hotel for the same rates anywhere from the 20th to the 28th of may!
Visit our Hotel Page for more information. Reservations can start to be made in the coming days, so expect another announcement.

Registration
We're working out the last few bugs in our registration system, and so registration will be open as of December 15th.
More information can be found on our Registration and Dealers pages, as well as informations about add-ons and upgrades.

Programming
What The Fur can't exist without people like you, our attendees. And though we all work hard to bring you the best of events and entertainment, we are always looking to be better.
If you have an idea for a panel, a workshop or an event that you think would work at What The Fur, let us know! We're always on the hunt for new things to do
But worry not! We'll be bringing back your favourites such as the Chocolate Social, the Fursuit Games and the Fursuit Hockey League, Rockband and the ever-wonderful Saturday Night Dance.
We'll be bringing you a few new things this year, so keep your eyes open on our Programming page for updates and info.

2014 brings us to a grand celebration. Five years of adventures, five years of camaraderie, five years of fun. We have been through pirates and the ninjas, zombies, creatures of the night and fairies. But now it is time to bring the dirigibles home to rest. Join us for the grand jubilee, and wind up your clockwork heart: What The Fur is proud to present you with a steam powered celebration. Consider this your gilded invitation.

What The Fur?

In this edition of the news

-Guest of Honour: Ookami Kemono
-State of the Convention

Guest of Honour: Ookami Kemono



What The Fur is proud to present you with our chosen Guest of Honour for 2014, the amazingly talented Ookami Kemono, also known as Alex Cockburn. He is originally from Boston, Massachusetts. Mostly self-taught with the pencil and ink techniques, he studied the basics of drawing anatomy from watching various cartoons and reading Japanese Manga. His illustrations soon reached numerous published children's books, CD covers, television, and game magazines. Later he found a talent for animation; both stop motion and cell animation. He soon graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. Soon after, he published his first furry graphic novel, "Concealment" and is now working on a series called "Lucid's Dream".


His unique images focus on the hardships of life and relations, questioning topics in the furry fandom, to the joy of being in love and having friends. His artwork became so inspiring to others that people wrote to him saying that his artwork saved and changed their lives. Ookami also shares his talent and donates numerous illustrations to various furry conventions. His artistic curse, a developing cute style, soon became known as the style of "D'AWWWWW!" to thousands.



State of the Convention

In 2013 What The Fur moved to a new home at the Delta Centre-Ville. We had an amazing time there, and we loved the hotel as much as the hotel loved having us there. However, the Delta has announced that they will be closing operations at the end of October this year. This leaves us in the precarious position of finding a new hotel in which to hold the convention. Also, as you might have noticed, we have not given an exact date for the event in 2014.



We are in negotiations currently, and will be able to announce both the dates and the hotel soon. What The Fur is aiming to again hold our event on the same weekend, in 2014 that will be the 16th to the 19th of May, but until things are settled with the new hotel, we can’t promise that the date might not change. Also, thanks to all of the feedback we received, we are looking to return to the area around our former home, the Espresso.

Another year passes, and another What The Fur does as well.

This year saw the introduction of a new hotel, new games, new panels and new friends. Every year I am amazed at the people, the smiles, and the great things that happen here in Montreal. I couldn’t ask for better.

You, the 297 of you who came to participate, raised $2185.75 for our charity, the EcoMuseum. That is an astounding amount! You gave Montreal a show outside during the Fursuit Parade. You scored during the first ever Fursuit Hockey Games, and you entertained during the Fursuit games and the Masquerade. We provided the place, but you provided the convention.

We are already making plans for next year’s event, working hard to make some changes and to improve on things to make it even better. I hope that you all understand that though we – the staff and volunteers that help make What The Fur what it is – need a little bit of a break. But there have already been ideas floating around, and 2014 looks to be just as amazing.

On behalf of What The Fur, our staff, volunteers and attendees, I would like to extend a special thanks to HollyAnn for being our Guest of Honour this year. I would also like to thank all of the staff and volunteers for their hard work and dedication, and lastly, I would like to thank all of you for coming and making What The Fur what it is: the best convention.


And with the convention over, the ball closed down and the clock striking midnight, What The Fur lived on, happily ever after…


…definitely not the end.

How can we let a good thing end so soon?
The answer: We can't. The masses have spoken, and so the decision has been made to keep pre-registration open for another 2 weeks! Well, nearly. We will be keeping pre-registration going until Friday, May 3rd at Midnight. But this will be your final chance to pre-register.
This also means the last few tables in the Dealers Den are up for grabs too!
http://register.whatthefur.ca

And the good news keeps on coming!
The Hotel has informed us that it will continue to accept room reservations at our convention rate so long as they have the rooms available in the hotel! So if you're still doing the math, or just about missed the deadline, don't worry! There's still room! But the offer is subject to change without notice, so don't delay too long!
http://hotel.whatthefur.ca

Looking for something to do?
Do you want to be on programming at What The Fur? It's not too late to suggest a panel or workshop.
Or you can look at our current panel listings - what we already have planned - and sign up for a panel or two.

What The Fur: Fairy Tales
May 17-19 2013
Montreal
www.whatthefur.ca
 
Registration and Hotel Reservations
There are now only two weeks left to pre-register for the convention! As of Midnight on April 16th registration will close until the beginning of the convention. This also means that as of midnight on the 16th we will no longer be offering the Patron level of membership. At the door, the prices for our Regular and Sponsor levels of membership will be going up by $5, so register as soon as you can! Just go to http://register.whatthefur.ca.
Also, the hotel will no longer accept reservations under the What The Fur room rates as of Midnight on the 16th, so if you haven’t already reserved your room at the Delta, now would be the time! There are still rooms left to be had, and everyone knows that staying in the hotel makes for an easier visit. Go to http://hotel.whatthefur.ca for details, and for the link to reserve online.
 
Dealers
As above, Dealers registration will also close on the 16th. With the added space in our new Dealers Den there are still tables available, but they’re going fast. Make sure you have your spot by registering now! Also, we have added an option to purchase extra table space! Due to demand, you can now add 3-foot or 6-foot table spaces to your spot. If you have already registered your place, but want to add more room, just visit the EventFox registration site and add them to your registration. It’s that simple!
 
Art Show and the Charity Auction
If you have something you want to have on display, whether just for viewing or to have people bid on, our Art Show still has room left. There is information on the Art Show page of the website, and the panels are only $25 each until the 14th.
And if you have something you’d like to enter into the Charity auction, or something you’d like to provide to help us raise funds for our charity, please let us know! This year we will be adding a raffle area, so that you can buy tickets to bid on specific items without them being in the auction! But we’d like to have things donated to the cause! Just send us an email to auction@whatthefur.ca if you have any questions on what might be accepted.
 
Hockey!
The International Fursuit Hockey League is shaping up nicely! The referees are busy putting the details on the rules, but already we have teams chomping at the bit to face off against eachother! Right now we have teams of fursuiters from Montreal, from Boston, and from Toronto, with a possible fourth and fifth coming in soon!
Do you want to play? Sign up now by sending an email to ifhl@whatthefur.ca. Sign up will also be available at the Registration desk at the convention.
 
Panelists and Presenters
We’re still open for ideas and for people who would like to help on the programming side of the convention.
If you have an idea for a panel, a workshop or a presentation, let us know! Remember that you don’t have to be on the panel to submit an idea, we just want to know what it is you’d like to see! But if you have the itch to help out by being on a panel, or you want to run a workshop, we’re very much open to that as well!
 
The Dance
On Saturday evening, we will be starting our usual dance with a little bit of flair! In honour of our theme, we will be hosting a Masquerade Ball! So break out your bowties, your suits and dresses, and shine your shoes up! For the first portion of the dance, of course, masks are requested, whether you use just one, or put another over your fursuit.
Also, we’re still on the hunt for DJs for the dance! If you’re interested, send an email to av@whatthefur.ca.

Hello everyone,
First, a note: Over the last week and a half (Since November 11th), we had an issue that was only just identified and fixed with our registration system. If you tried to register for What The Fur between the 11th and the 20th of November, we need you to re-register for the convention. Deepest apologies.
Second: A reminder. What The Fur's Early-Bird Pre-registration ends at midnight on the 30th. So if you're looking at saving a little, register by then! On the 1st of December, most of our prices will be going up a little bit.
So don't delay! http://register.whatthefur.ca to make sure you're in under the deadline!

…there was a mountain. But this wasn’t just any mountain. This mountain was royal. It’s wooded slopes were the home to all manner of creatures. After many years, the trees gave way to the expansion of a kingdom. Giant buildings made of shining glass were erected, roads and causeways were created to aid in the delivering of goods and services. But the animals still remained, and thrived. Annually, folk from other kingdoms come to visit the Royal Mountain. They come from lands near and far for one purpose: To celebrate.
The pumpkin carriages are parked, the orchestra has struck the first note, and the banquet is awaiting. What The Fur 2013 is ready to receive you to our Fairy Tale kingdom! We’re pleased to announce that our fourth convention is building up nicely, with the staff rallying their elves and fairy godmothers to help.

What The Fur has come and gone, and without any reservations I can say that this was the best convention I have ever attended and the absolute best that I have ever helped build. But the thanks don’t only lie with the great team of people that helped make it what it is, but also with all of you: the people who came. The people who had fun, who ran panels and who sold artwork of all kinds in the Dealers Den, the volunteers that arrived and said “How can I help?”. Thank you for making this convention what it is: Unique.
In the years I have been helping to run events, none has brought a smile to my face like What The Fur has. After this weekend I got home, collapsed, and smiled. I was exhausted, my feet hurt, but I was so happy that I saw so many smiles over the weekend. I’m still riding that rush. Others come to WTF and say that this is the best convention they attend. Now, after our third and best year, I see what they see. So thank you so very much.
As I said at the closing ceremonies, What The Fur has grown. We had an amazing 282 people come to Montreal for the weekend, and from everything I saw, heard, and felt, I think everyone had a good time. 282 people is amazing, and it gives me reason to push forward and work hard to ensure 2013 holds an even better con for people.
I want to once again apologise for the lack of a parade. For those who aren’t aware, or did not know the reasons for the cancellation, we got hit in two ways. Though we love the Hotel Espresso, it is a little too small for an indoor parade of Fursuiters so we hold our parade outside on the streets of Montreal. The first downfall was the weather. Rain plus fursuits equals no fun. The second reason was the protests happening in downtown Montreal. We just couldn’t take the chance of something going wrong. To my knowledge, the protests actually took place just a few blocks from the hotel on Saturday night. So I want to thank all of our guests again for their understanding, and I promise that in 2013 we will definitely find a way to make the parade happen.
More than that, and one that does bring a tear (well, more than one) to my eye, is what we did for our charity, the Ecomuseum (www.ecomuseum.ca ). All of you gave so generously. So much so that although we did not reach the original goal of $5000, we more than surpassed what we raised last year. Today Myself, Firebreath and Manny visited the Ecomuseum and presented them with the $4150.93 that was raised! The staff at the Ecomuseum were blown away, and wanted to pass on their thanks and gratitude to you all. I myself was blown away. And again, though we didn’t raise the original amount, more than $4000 was enough to tip the scales and make this chairbunny bald. I know there were many of you out there filming as I was cuffed to the chair and as my hair was removed fully. I stand by this even if it does seem to make me cooler (temperature-wise, not status-wise).
As a double hit, the hair that had been growing for 14 years will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society to be used to produce wigs for those who have lost hair due to cancer treatments.

In closing, again I want to thank all of you. For making the convention the best time that could be had, and for giving so much. You are what makes it all worth the effort. I hope to see you all next year!

As the convention creeps closer, some of us think of some important things. Things such as “Do I need to pack that sketchbook?”, “Did I set the alarm before laying down?” or “Do I need that extra pair of underwear?” But the sad reality is, most of us forget that sketchbook (and yes, even the underwear) now and then. One thing that also gets forgotten is making sure you have a place to stay for your visit.

For those of you coming in from out of town, the Hotel Espresso is still offering us a room rate of $110 CDN per night, but the deal isn’t without its end date. The deal ends on May 6th! So if you haven’t made your arrangements with the hotel for a room yet, get on it! The room rate is available for anyone staying at the hotel from May 31st to June 4th, so you can even spend an extra day checking out the sights! Just be sure to mention you’re going to What The Fur when you call the hotel to reserve your room (that would be -514-938-4611 or 1-877-468-3550). Sadly, getting the good rate on the rooms isn’t available online, but if you call, the people working at the main desk of the hotel know us and love us.
If you’re looking for someone to share a room with, we have our forums available on the website, and there is also our Livejournal or Dreamwidth groups for sending requests.

Just 8 more weeks until the creatures of the night come out of hiding!

Oh, and don’t forget the underwear.
