A reminder to all that the poll for the charity we will be representing at #FOW2018 is still open. Come and vote! #Furblockopolis.
Our hard work on FOW 2017 is now over – we finished the convention raising a grand total of $3850 for the charity (Assistance Dogs Australia) with a total attendance of 112 furs, and we’ve started work on FOW 2018.
There’s some exciting stuff in the pipeline for FOW 2018, just wait and see.
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.
Standard pre-registrations will close tonight at 8pm, however day passes will be available at the convention registration desk for those who miss out.
The convention registration desk will have Visa, Mastercard & EFTPOS facilities and will accept cash.
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.
