Gateway Furmeet ST. Louis MO. Hotel closing.
« on: November 23, 2013, 04:50:02 pm »
Checked on this new local convention today and found this info on the site.

http://gatewayfurmeet.org/

Hotel and convention center closing. They are still planning to have the convention. According to the info on their site even the hotel staff is helping to relocate the event. They are going to try to have it  on the same dates. April 18-20. Guess they're looking to not overlap other furry conventions. Motor City fur con Apr. 11-13 and Morphicon May 1-4. Hope to hear good things from them soon. Going to keep everyone up to date.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Promising!!! This is taken directly from Gateway Furmeet's web site.

"We have some excellent news on the hotel front. We have contacted several hotels to find out if they will be able to host Gateway FurMeet, and we have several options to investigate further. In addition, several other hotels in the area have contacted us and shown interest in hosting the convention in the wake of the Millenium Hotelís announcement, and we will continue to follow up with them to determine which hotel will best meet our needs."

This is really good news. I'll keep everyone informed.

If i remember correctly Independence  MO. is where the Oregon trail started from. Not really sure why ST Louis is call the gateway to the west. Omaha, Pittsburgh, Fargo and Fort Wayne also are know as Gateway to the West. Guess it was better than being known for a city by two muddy rivers that flood. In reality it's a bad slogan for any town. It's like saying if you want to get anywhere, pass threw here.  (:
