Last week for pre-registration!

Hey everyone, we’re having about 4 or 5 folks register a day now, and that’s great – it really helps us with buying the right amount of food to keep you fed!

One note, the reg system seems to not be sending confirmation emails since May 30th, although we have a full record of our attendees – you are on the list. You still should get a PayPal notification, and your ID is all you need to check in at the door!

See you at the Picnic!

2014 Preregistration closed – Register At-The-Door today!

Registration is closed, and only 11 hours remain until the picnic!

Please register at the door.  $10 per person – must have ID – Cash, credit cards, or PayPal accepted!

Remember! – Wickham Park parking is $5 per car, cash.

This event will go on rain or shine, but don’t worry, we have a small fleet of pop-up tents and tarps in addition to the pavilion!

LOOK!  Weather underground has us being rain free all day!  Please come and enjoy!!!

*Storm cancellation* Fursuiters! Lunch on us, Tuesday! Baymont Inn promo photo shoot in Manchester!

1/20/2014 – *UPDATE* – This is currently cancelled due to Storm Chester – Please check back for a new date.

Hey hey hey!

We need fursuiters to help shoot promo photos at Baymont Inn in Manchester, our hotel venue, on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 @ 1:00 pm!  We want to show our hotel venue what furry is about in a fun way, and honestly, this hotel is awesome!  For folks that want to split a room before or after the con, this is a GREAT fun venue –  that’s why we want to show it off!  What better way than some fun furry photos!

Here is the Hotel Information page… but, just in case:

Baymont Inn And Suites ManchesterBaymont INNs & Suites Manchester Logo

20 Taylor Street, Manchester, CT 06042 US

Phone – (860) 643-5645  Also at http://www.awardhotel.com/

Fursuiters can change at the hotel. Photos are expected to take about an hour on site.  After that, we can all go get food – on us! We’ll be wrapping up for the day by about 3:00 pm.

Want to join us? Just show up, and be prepared to “work”!  Fursuiters, if you would like to bring  a guest, that’s fine!

If you get a moment, send us an email at info@furrypicnic.com or on Twitter @furrypicnic and let us know you’ll be coming!

Furry Picnic 2014 Registration is now open!

We’re back!  Join us for another year at Wickham Park!  Furry picnic registration is now live!

Registration for Furry Picnic is $10.00 – and gets you all the great food, the commemorative 2014 mug, and the badge!

All the details are on our Membership & Registration page!

As we said last year, we really hope folks take advantage of pre-registration, it helps us plan, and makes it way easier for you once you arrive at Furry Picnic, but we know that some folks are spontaneous, last minute, lazy, or just like to take care of their business in person – no problem.  With this being on Memorial Day weekend, we expect more folks to get involved!

  1. What you’ll need: Government Photo ID for age verification (Furry Picnic is an all-ages event, but this is required for liability and because alcohol is allowed in the picnic area) – no exceptions.
  2. $10.00 – Cash, credit card, or your PayPal ID – no checks.
  3. $5.00 for parking – Bring friends, carpool, and split it!

If you need to, pre-reg by email, and pay at the door, or do it all with PayPal.  But whatever works – bottom line, please come join us at the Furry Picnic!

Coming soon… Pre-reg perks (Such as the Furry Picnic 2014 prints, available only to those who preregister!)

Furry Picnic 2013 – The Big Thank You

Thank You!

You, the guests of our first Furry Picnic, you have helped create furry history and ensured that this event will happen again. Because of your turn out in numbers, your thanks, your smiles, and your respect, from our hearts, we sincerely thank you!

Thank you EVERYONE that made Furry Picnic a success!  Let’s drop some names, TigerFoxx and Solarion in the kitchen and donating food and time, Arthemys on Registration, Darkcougarkat’s Bro on the deep-fryer (What’s up, bro! *fistpump*) Barker Jr. dropping a few bucks to  help out, Iron Chef donating loot, Logarth and Pyrophin and Val and Fray and Fire Fox and Spots cooking and helping…  Molten lending a hand here and there, EVERYONE lending a hand now and then, EVERYONE for coming, EVERYONE that ate our food, EVERYONE that brought food, EVERYONE for having fun and proving that when furs come together, we make it real.

Props to Tarucat and Xiris – the kitties that make FA state and region groups like connecticutfurs and newenglandfurs rock.

Put your names in the comments if you wanted to say you helped, donated, or made things awesome, brag – go for it 🙂

Darkcougar and I (FrostElf) were talking, and we’re totally blown away by how awesome everyone was and we will do this again.  We think it went ‘very good’ and next time we’ll tune the little things we think we can do better, but seriously, no drama, all fun, we are glad we could treat you, and that you all had such a great time!

If you think just being one person coming to the event and just ‘being there’ isn’t amazing, try 1+1+1… repeat it 100 times, meet other furs… local furs, new friends, chilling, eating, having fun, saying “Yes, I’ll go”…  seriously, that’s magic that makes it happen – thank you so much!

That’s about it, don’t want to TL:DR it – final count on attendance, 101.  Event created on April 19th – one month, 100 furs.  Pretty neat, huh 🙂

And  if you want to talk to us, ask what you can do to make your own furry event as fun and cheap as this, or have ideas for our event, we’d love to hear from you at info@furrypicnic.com

See you at the NEXT Furry Picnic!

– FrostElf & Darkcougarkat

Pre-regged and missed the Picnic – contact us for swag!

11 people missed the event, and that happens, but you will get your mug, badge and prints!  Email info@furrypicnic.com with your name and address, we’ll check the PayPal reg, and we will ship your stuff for FREE on May 31st, or if you want, tell us that you’ll pick it up at the next CT Furry Diner Meet, June 7th at Rocky, Hill, CT.

Thank you for supporting us, we’ll see you next Furry Picnic!

Furry Picnic Pre-Registration extended one more day!

Because we’re nice, and it’s not much of a fuss, we’ll be keeping pre-reg open until tomorrow at midnight. But once it is Furry Picnic Sunday, we’ll just see you there for At-The-Door registration!

Oh, don’t forget your ID – for everyone, all reg types, 100%!  Seriously, we just need to check those ages, and then you can stick it back in your wallet.  We say this a lot, we mean this a lot – it is all ages, but have to keep it smart!

– FrostElf

The mugs just arrived…

…and they are awesome.

Again, thanks to Tod Wills for the arts! Woo, this is the first time I have felt drunk before I drink what inside.  Valid reasons for not coming to Furry Picnic just decreased…  see you tomorrow maybe, but Sunday, for sure!
