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!

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!

Unofficial Pre-Picnic Saturday Late Dinner Meet

Hello again!

We know a few folks are arriving early, and after a day of chopping veggies, washing and checking equipment, and shopping, Dark & I will be heading out to eat.  We would love for you all to join us!

 

Saturday Night, May 18th – Late Dinner at the 99 Restaurant

295 Hartford Turnpike  Vernon, CT 06066

Meeting outside at 8:30 pm – 8:45 pm, sitting down to eat at 9:00 pm

Casual Dress – *NO EARS, TAILS, FURSUITS, etc, INSIDE! … just be cool. 🙂

Open seating, but we will try to sit together. Show up late and it’s seating wherever.

 

That’s about it, it’s not the diner meet, so we won’t be hanging around, save the fursuiting and silliness for the picnic, but please join us for some eats and a beverage – no RSVP, again, just show early.

Another reason to pre-register for Furry Picnic – more *ahem* …swag! #YO-*facslap* (ow!)

furrypicnic1_proof_teaserOk,

You’re still thinking about At-The-Door registration…  well, how can we persuade such nice folks who have not pregistered, and reward those who have?  What do we have to do? After all, to preregister, just send an email! Cash a concern? Heck, even reg now – but pay there, zero commitment on the financial bit, right?

Fine… Bribes.

Swag. Tchotchke… stuff!  Well, okay, we can do that!  Act now, and get exclusive prints of the proofs of Tod Wills’ Furry Picnic 2013 art, also get a print by Foxy! of Lazy Fox Studios – Long-time con book contributor and publisher of AnthropoMORPHINE.  Just think, one email and you get prints and a mug, and a badge, and food – that’s a great deal for 5 bucks!  More stuff, more fun, more furry awesomeness! See you at the Furry Picnic!

At-The-Door Registration Announced!

Registration just got easier!

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.  Furry Picnic officially announces At-The-Door registration!

  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. $5.00 – Cash, credit card, or your PayPal ID – no checks.
  3. $5.00 for parking – Bring friends, carpool, and split it!

If you can,  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!

More fun than a mug full of drink, and foxes!

A tall frosty mug of fox!

So the prospect of food, and a great day at the park wasn’t the only part of the deal, but a mug was promised as well.  With that being said, we introduce the Official Furry Picnic 2013 14 Oz. Mood Stein! this awesome mug goes from frosted white to purple when cold, dishwasher safe, and featuring the fun foxy art of Tod Wills, former FurFright guest of honor, and most amazing of illustrators.   Another one of our gifts to you, we hope everyone will enjoy!

Behold…

Food Update

Holy Macaroni – Food!

So I’ve been thinking, we can get some burgers and hot dogs, some boneless chicken, sausage, and maybe some salmon or some shrimp, and some veggie burgers, and vegan friendly burgers, and start with that.

Cheese and bacon, cold cuts, yeah, we’ll have that too.

Ok ok, so Dark said he’s bringing his deep fryer, so that means onion rings, fried, fried mozzarella, and some jalapeno poppers.

Okay, so I figure then if we get that I’ll get crock pots, I’ll make some plain pasta, then I’ll have nacho cheese, veggie chilli, and red sauce … so we can have like a pasta bar/nacho bar and sauce for the Mozzarella sticks.

So salad, we’ll have that… and then we get some potato salad, pasta salad, mac salad, and coleslaw.  Maybe a bean salad or baked beans – we will see!

Munchies, right, veggie platter, fruit salad, chips, popcorn, Nutella, some fresh fruit – got it!

Dessert, okay – pies, cakes, cookies, brownies, pudding, watermelon – definitely.

Drinks – Hosmer Mountain Soda, juice, iced coffee, and water – absolutely.

So, I think I have enough for the meat loving crowd, the omnivores, the sweet tooths, the vegetarians, and I think I just might have a good stash going for vegans (as best as I can, really reading those labels for eggs and cheese/milk and the sneaky stuff)

Also, if you’ve got potluck, contact us, and we’ll feature your dish!

CT Diner Meet Feedback – Picnic almost here!

Yes, it’s only days away!  (Then again, it has only existed for no more than 2 weeks!)

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all the furs at the Town Line Diner that Dark & I got to see and meet if only for a moment, and give awesome glowy goodness too.  We hope that enjoyed the fun gift, and took a moment check out this site and come to Wickham Park for the picnic!

There’s just a few thing people were asking that I wanted to make sure were clear on,  so people would be able to come and have a great time, so here we go!
