FOW 2017 – Hotel Room Update

Afternoon all.

Good news and bad news in regards to the hotel rooms.

Bad news:

The hotel did officially sell out last week. We have been working closely with them, but due to an anomaly in their system, they actually oversold their capacity on the Saturday night and have shunted non con-goers into their partner hotels.

Good news:

There has been 1×2 person studio room opened up. This is strictly 1st come 1st served and you need to put your name down here for it, as it will not be allocated by the hotel unless we confirm you are registered with the reception/function manager.

The hotel has also been extremely helpful in finding us some alternative options for those who have tried to book a room late.

These below are the places that currently have availability within very easy distance of The Atrium.

The Mandurah Family Resort – used to be Mandurah Holiday Village contact number 9551 5213. Approximately 2-3 Blocks from the Atrium, single units and two bedroom villas available from $153.00

Mandurah Motel & Apartments – used to be Comfort Inn. 9582 9488 Recent reviews are standard/good value. Rooms available from $123.00

Foreshore Motel –9535 5577 located further along the foreshore, motel style accommodation but clean 1 bedroom rooms available from $125.00

Hope this helps.

FurOutWest 2017 – Parents and Guardians Announcement

Good evening furries of all ages.

We at Fur Out West have a fantastic announcement to make.

It was always our mantra from day one that we would include every fur in the fandom if it was at all possible, as we know there is a growing and flourishing population of younger furs born of the Zootopia generation.

We can now announce that minors will be 100% welcome as Ruth our treasurer has managed to secure the correct insurance after negotiations through a very helpful broker.

The insurance comes with three stipulations though that under WA law, we have to enforce.

• Those aged 16-18 may attend the con themselves with parental/guardian permission.
• Those aged 15 or younger must have a Parent/Guardian in attendance with them within convention space.
• All under 18’s will have a different colour of convention badge and/or ribbon that clearly identifies them to bar and convention staff that must be worn at all times.

Due the conditions above in regards to under 15’s, we at Fur Out West have come to the decision that we will offer a single parent/guardian ticket price of $40 to any full price ticket registered to a minor as we know that some parents/guardians are not themselves furry…Yet!

Rest assured to the over 18’s, we at Fur Out West are going to ensure that entertainment and panel content will suit all, and therefore certain shows and panels if they are voted for in the upcoming polls will come with a clear MA18 warning upon entrance.

Yours.

Fur Out West team.
