It'll probably be easiest to plan once the schedule for the year is released. Which will hopefully be soon.
I feel like last year's worked pretty well, though, with taking the food back to the room to eat. It's just easier to manage that way than trying to find a place elsewhere to sit and eat as a group.

Maybe we'll accidentally get an entire extra pizza again :D

I wish I could go as it's not during the MI Firearm Deer Season or encroaching upon Thanksgiving. So many fursuiters from around the world attend MFF and my fursuit maker is trying to organize a photoshoot, but it's too far for me to travel alone and still get back to work on Monday. I had to disappoint a rather noteworthy fursuiter/artist who expected me to turn up last year. (I'd mention her name, but that would be crass. Besides, she's spoken for.)

As a rule, I try to support those fur cons which are within a few hours drive of home.

You think you have it bad? I haven't been able to go to MFF for the last 10 years.  :(

...I should probably mention at some point that I am, in fact, going to MFF again this year.  My rooming, travel, and financial arrangements have all been set.

Yea!

I'll get to meet a ton of people I've known online for so many years and years online in person at this con.  In addition i'm also going to get to see some of my friends from when I lived in California.  Couldn't be more excited for this.

Any news on the meet up?  I plan on being in artists alley for most of the weekend, but I should be able to get away from my table depending on the date and time.

Saturday... 7 or 8pm, maybe? It'll be a late dinner, but perhaps this time we could actually order an hour early and hopefully pizza will be there in time?
We could probably get away with just doing one cheese and one sausage.

Gonna just up and say 8pm, meet at the second floor lobby at the nearby-ish to the hotel registration desks. We'll try to get stuff ordered at 7 so it hopefully gets there around 8. Once we've got pizza, we can take it back to our room to eat.

If anybody needs to contact me, easiest is to probably hit me up on twitter (@zielfox). After we know our room number, I'll post an update so anybody getting there late could just meet there.

I am at MFF again this year, and I would love to once again hang out with you guys.  However, with that said, I'll likely still be watching the MFF Variety Show at 8PM on Saturday (I haven't missed the variety show in over 10 MFF's, so I kinda wanna see it), so I won't be able to meetup with you at your start time.  Ziel, could you please post your room number here once you know it yourself so that I can try to find you guys once the variety show's over?  That way if you guys are still hanging out at that point I can be fashionably late!  :)  Please keep me posted!

[Kaira:] you can find us/me fursuiting as me - look for spotted hyena w/ grey camera bag. We will try to locate your group at 8pm at least to say hi and maybe get pics or something. Probably wont be up for eating though judging by last night and having eaten a bunch this morning and stuff.

Don't need to eat if you don't want to! But you're welcome to hang out for a bit regardless.

 :( started getting increasingly sick today, so ended up just going back to our room. Ironically we likely contracted it from *before* the con, due to Stray whom we were coming to be with being sick already.

My Dad came and picked the four of us up from the hotel and we stayed at my house last night. We're all fine, and we even brought Relaxing Dragon home as well. We'll probably be heading back soon.

My husband and I decided to go back home.  I'll be back to check out and get the last of my stuff from the hotel room, which was right near the stairwell.

Somebody must be really screwed up in the head to pull a stunt like that.  :goldpissed: I hope they catch the person who was responsible. Probably a furry hater, I'm guessing.
