Announcing MNFurs: Snowpocalypse Winter Event!



Snowpocalypse a MNFurs Event



A cold wind has blown through the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The fish huddle under two feet of snow and four feet of ice. Wolves play in the snow while bears sleep peacefully in their dens; and all the furries are coming out in packs to the Snowpocalypse!



Last year MNFurs put on their first winter hotel event. It was a smashing success.

This year we are going to put on a new one-day winter event at a bigger venue and with the fun cranked up to a snowy 11.

  • How much: Registration for "The Den", Ice cream social, and badge $10 at the door.

  • Can I Get A Room: If you plan on staying late our hotel the Country Inn & Suites will have rooms at a special MNFurs rate. To find out more about the hotel and the room rate go to http://www.mnfurs.org/snowpocalypse/.

Midwest Furfest Gaming for 2010: In search of games for the lending libraries
X-Posted to midwest_furfest

I am pleased to announce that there will indeed be gaming again at MFF for 2010. We had an explosion of popularity last year which made it a huge success. We have an exciting lineup for gaming in 2010 including the long awaited and requested console video game room, new and shiny for 2010!

With about a month before the convention, I have one announcement and request for gamers to consider for the con this year. As with years past we will have a lending library set up where people can bring games to share with the rest of the con for the duration of con hours.

As with before, we will have staff and gophers checking and watching over the games which reside behind a desk when not being played with a full log so we know who donated what and who checked out a game last. This system has worked well in the past years and I am happy to say we've never had an incident of anyone getting their game(s) back whether through forgetting it or someone walking off with it. If you forget your games at the con we WILL track you down and get it back to you :3.

For those interested in bringing games to the board gaming room to donate to the lending library the process is simple. Check the game in any time during convention hours to leave behind the desk for checkout; and check the game out any time before the convention ends on Sunday afternoon. It's therefore the owner’s choice how long to let us borrow it. As allways you are welcome to bring your own games to play and not lend them to us, but if you do we ask you take it with you. Anything left in the gaming rooms needs to be checked in.

In addition, we will have a lending library for video games. We encourage people to bring video games for rental, but all the controllers and consoles will be provided separately and belong to one donor. I don't want to end up with an xbox console and have to try to figure out what controller belongs to whom. We've got the consoles, we just need GAMES. If you prefer to bring your own controller for your own PERSONAL use this is fine, but we are not going to have them in the lending library save for the ones provided with the donated console.

As of right now, the following video game consoles will be at the convention if you are interested in bringing a game to lend.

Xbox 360
Wii
PS2
N64

If we get any more consoles within the next month or so from our staff; I will update this list so people planning to bring games with them to lend or play can plan accordingly.

Looking forward to seeing all the gamers at 2010 soon!
