Good evening everyfur
We are proud to announce our fantastic Guest of Honours and our charity for this year’s #FurOutWest #Furblockopolis.
Introducing the talented artist and fursuit maker Kaikirith from Eastern Dragon Studios.
And the amazing dancer and youtuber Blu the Dragon
Lastly, but not the least, our charity for 2018 is the amazing Western Australian Dingo Association!
They will be an active part of the convention, so be sure to say hi.
A reminder to all that the poll for the charity we will be representing at #FOW2018 is still open. Come and vote! #Furblockopolis.
Tirek is joining us again, though rather than swimming elegantly, he is looking a little more…blocky!
How will his city look this time? Who knows, but his many friends are coming along and invite you all to join them for even more fun and events!
Watch out for the community polls as they are released soon!
What…It’s Monday already?
That would mean the first ever FurOutWest is over, and the preparations for 2018 are already underway.
As the community con though, we could really do with some feedback before we go into debriefing as a committee.
What did you like?
What do you think needs to improve?
What didn’t you like?
Now we also understand that you may think we won’t like the answers, but I can assure you that every single bit of feedback we receive will be read and replied to, good or bad. After all, we actually listen to everything that you say, as we fully admit that despite our experience, we can always learn.
Drop a line using the on the facebook page, or on the form here, if you want to keep your feedback private.
Good news and bad news in regards to the hotel rooms.
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.
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.
Just a reminder that registration for standard tickets close a week before the convention, and sponsor tickets close in late October.
Tickets are still available, with plenty left.
Hello everyfur, just want to say that we are now taking submissions for the con book, so if you would like to contribute any art or adds, please feel free to send them in.
We will be closing submissions for the conbook on the 16th October, so we can organise and send it off for printing. :3
Just a small note that at the time of posting this, there were only 4 dealers tables remaining.
If you wish to deal at FoW, get in quick!
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.
Fur Out West team.
