What The Fur April News
Time ticks away. One second per second, moving forward and not stopping. It's a drawback to not actually having a time machine. And as time moves forward, the future becomes the present, and then the past. But when something is coming on the temporal horizon, you have to get yourself ready to seize the moment. And the time for seizing is now. Or will be now. Or will have has to be...

Le temps s’écoule... Seconde par seconde, allant de l’avant sans pouvoir être arrêté. Il est problématique de ne pas avoir de machine à voyager dans le temps. Avec le temps qui s’écoule, le futur devient le présent, puis le passé. Mais quand un événement apparaît sur l’horizon temporel, il faut être prêt à l’accueillir. Et il est maintenant temps. Ou il sera maintenant temps. Ou il était temps plus tard…

Time is running out!
Which is odd, considering the nature of time travel. But there are some fixed points in time that just cannot be changed.
One of those is the end of our Early Bird Pre-registration pricing.
On December 1st, 2014, all of our registration levels go up in price. Only the Patron level of membership remains at its current rate.
Remember: So long as you register by the end of the month you don't need to pay until later!
Check our registration page for details and to register now!
(Offers only valid for the 2015 edition of What The Fur. Future Time Travellers must register in the prescribed period. Temporal mail will not be accepted.)
Le temps s'écoule rapidement!
Ce qui peut sembler bizarre considérant la nature du voyagement temporel. Mais, il y a toujours des points fixe dans le temps qui ne peuvent tout simplement pas être changés.
Un de ces points est la fin des rabais de la période d'inscription lêve-tôt. Le 1er décembre 2014, tout les niveaux d'inscriptions verront leur prix augmenter. Seul le niveau Patron restera au même prix.
Rappelez-vous: tant que vous vous inscrivez d'ici la fin du mois, vous n'avez pas à payer avant la convention!
Allez sur notre page d'inscription pour tout les détails et pour vous inscrire!
(Offre valide que pour l'édition 2015 de What The Fur. Les voyageurs temporel provenant du future doivent s'inscrire pendant la période indiquée. La poste temporelle ne sera pas acceptée.)

The time is almost here!

What The Fur kicks off in 2 weeks! That's 14 days! That's... umm... not a lot of hours (relatively)!

Tonight at midnight we close pre-registration so we can get to work putting together the envelopes for everyone. So if you haven't yet registered, go and do it now! Otherwise you'll have to wait until the convention itself to register.

What The Fur? Fairy Tales
May 17-19 2013
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

How can we let a good thing end so soon?
The answer: We can't. The masses have spoken, and so the decision has been made to keep pre-registration open for another 2 weeks! Well, nearly. We will be keeping pre-registration going until Friday, May 3rd at Midnight. But this will be your final chance to pre-register.
This also means the last few tables in the Dealers Den are up for grabs too!

And the good news keeps on coming!
The Hotel has informed us that it will continue to accept room reservations at our convention rate so long as they have the rooms available in the hotel! So if you're still doing the math, or just about missed the deadline, don't worry! There's still room! But the offer is subject to change without notice, so don't delay too long!

Looking for something to do?
Do you want to be on programming at What The Fur? It's not too late to suggest a panel or workshop.
Or you can look at our current panel listings - what we already have planned - and sign up for a panel or two.

What The Fur: Fairy Tales
May 17-19 2013
Registration and Hotel Reservations
There are now only two weeks left to pre-register for the convention! As of Midnight on April 16th registration will close until the beginning of the convention. This also means that as of midnight on the 16th we will no longer be offering the Patron level of membership. At the door, the prices for our Regular and Sponsor levels of membership will be going up by $5, so register as soon as you can! Just go to http://register.whatthefur.ca.
Also, the hotel will no longer accept reservations under the What The Fur room rates as of Midnight on the 16th, so if you haven’t already reserved your room at the Delta, now would be the time! There are still rooms left to be had, and everyone knows that staying in the hotel makes for an easier visit. Go to http://hotel.whatthefur.ca for details, and for the link to reserve online.
As above, Dealers registration will also close on the 16th. With the added space in our new Dealers Den there are still tables available, but they’re going fast. Make sure you have your spot by registering now! Also, we have added an option to purchase extra table space! Due to demand, you can now add 3-foot or 6-foot table spaces to your spot. If you have already registered your place, but want to add more room, just visit the EventFox registration site and add them to your registration. It’s that simple!
Art Show and the Charity Auction
If you have something you want to have on display, whether just for viewing or to have people bid on, our Art Show still has room left. There is information on the Art Show page of the website, and the panels are only $25 each until the 14th.
And if you have something you’d like to enter into the Charity auction, or something you’d like to provide to help us raise funds for our charity, please let us know! This year we will be adding a raffle area, so that you can buy tickets to bid on specific items without them being in the auction! But we’d like to have things donated to the cause! Just send us an email to auction@whatthefur.ca if you have any questions on what might be accepted.
The International Fursuit Hockey League is shaping up nicely! The referees are busy putting the details on the rules, but already we have teams chomping at the bit to face off against eachother! Right now we have teams of fursuiters from Montreal, from Boston, and from Toronto, with a possible fourth and fifth coming in soon!
Do you want to play? Sign up now by sending an email to ifhl@whatthefur.ca. Sign up will also be available at the Registration desk at the convention.
Panelists and Presenters
We’re still open for ideas and for people who would like to help on the programming side of the convention.
If you have an idea for a panel, a workshop or a presentation, let us know! Remember that you don’t have to be on the panel to submit an idea, we just want to know what it is you’d like to see! But if you have the itch to help out by being on a panel, or you want to run a workshop, we’re very much open to that as well!
The Dance
On Saturday evening, we will be starting our usual dance with a little bit of flair! In honour of our theme, we will be hosting a Masquerade Ball! So break out your bowties, your suits and dresses, and shine your shoes up! For the first portion of the dance, of course, masks are requested, whether you use just one, or put another over your fursuit.
Also, we’re still on the hunt for DJs for the dance! If you’re interested, send an email to av@whatthefur.ca.

Are you getting anxious?
We might be a few weeks late, but fairy tales don't tend to take place in the winter months. Despite the snow, ice, and storms, we're hard at work prepping for the best What The Fur ever
So enjoy your mug of cocoa, put on your favourite slippers (ruby are allowed), and read on, my friends

4:09 pm
Once upon a time…
…there was a mountain. But this wasn’t just any mountain. This mountain was royal. It’s wooded slopes were the home to all manner of creatures. After many years, the trees gave way to the expansion of a kingdom. Giant buildings made of shining glass were erected, roads and causeways were created to aid in the delivering of goods and services. But the animals still remained, and thrived. Annually, folk from other kingdoms come to visit the Royal Mountain. They come from lands near and far for one purpose: To celebrate.
The pumpkin carriages are parked, the orchestra has struck the first note, and the banquet is awaiting. What The Fur 2013 is ready to receive you to our Fairy Tale kingdom! We’re pleased to announce that our fourth convention is building up nicely, with the staff rallying their elves and fairy godmothers to help.

It's almost here!
There's less than a week left to pre-register for What The Fur, so what are you waiting for? We've even decided to keep the Pre-Registration open until the 25th. Why? Because we like you all that much!
So pre-register now, because as of midnight on Friday the 25th of May, we close the door to pre-registering on the website, and you'll have to register at the door. We won't turn you away as we have plenty of room, but the price will be a little higher. So be sure to register now! There are also rooms left at the hotel! So long as you register at the hotel using the What The Fur code (which is, easily enough, What The Fur), you're guaranteed to get the convention room rate. We'll try and have everyone on the same floors, so if you haven't, book your room soon.


Il reste moins d'une semaine pour vous préinscrire pour What The Fur, alors qu'attendez-vous? Nous avons décidé de garder la pré-inscription ouverte jusqu'au 25. Pourquoi? Parce-que nous vous aimons tous autant que ça!
Alors préinscrivez-vous maintenant, parce qu'après minuit le vendredi 25 mai, nous fermons les portes de la préinscription sur le site web, et vous devrez vous inscrire au guichet. Nous n'allons pas vous refuser puisque nous avons plein de place, mais le prix sera un peu plus haut. Alors assurez-vous de vous inscrire maintenant!
Il reste également des chambres à l'Hôtel! Tant que vous vous inscrivez à l'Hôtel, en utilisant le code What The Fur (qui est, facilement, What The Fur), Il vous est garanti d'avoir le tarif de convention pour la chambre. Nous allons tenter d'avoir tout le monde au même étage, alors si vous ne l'avez pas encore fait, réservez votre chambre prochainement.

Signal Boost #1
The wonderfully tallented (and GoH for WTF 2012Karine Charlebois (kanthara, though that hasn't been updated in a long time) is looking for some help getting to FurFright in October. She is looking for someone to share the ride down with, either people with her in her car, or to join another vehicle. 
This would be from the Montreal area down to CT.

Ping her over on FA if you're able to help.

Signal Boost#2 - Fursuiting event!
Hello Everyone, 

Some of us have been contacted to be part of a dog walk benefiting the Monteregie SPCA.
They are looking for people to come walk and would love to have fursuiters at their event; every species welcome! Smile 

Where: Seaway Park in Saint Lambert (corner of Riverside and Pine)
When: September 11, 2011 @ 10:00AM (meeting up between the running ring and baseball diamond at around 9:45AM)
How: By car or metro/bus
Why: An optional 2KM walk for the Monteregie SPCA! (An excuse to suit!)

For fursuiters: Be advised that no arrangement seems to have been taken for changing/rest area. Assume that you will have to change in your/a car.
For handlers: Many kids and animals expected. Be alert in case of an issue!
For everyone else: Bring your photo and video cameras! Have fun! Very Happy

What The Fur: November News

What The Fur
June 3-5, 2011
The infection is spreading. It starts with a vague hunger, something is missing deep inside. Something is needed. After that comes the longing, the deep want for something to fill the void. Twitching sets in eventually, muscles moving of their own accord. Soon, those infected begin to move, infecting others and spreading the desire, the hunger. Soon a few of the infected gather together. And then a few more. Soon a hoard descends on the city, spreading the infection to anyone they come into contact with.
And that, boys and girls, is how a convention is started.  Welcome to 2011; the year of the Apocalypse. The year that Montreal will fall under the teeming masses of furries.
What The Fur is proud to present: Zombie Apocalypse: Night of the Furry Dead
In This Issue:
1. Guests Of Honour
2. Hotel Info
3. Pitch in and run something!

What The Fur 
3 au 5 juin 2011

L’infection se propage. Elle commence avec une faim étrange, quelque-chose manque, à l’intérieur de soit. On ressent le besoin de quelque-chose. Cet après que s’en vient la lancinante, profonde envie de quelque-chose pour combler ce vide. On ressent alors des spasmes, les muscles bougent d’eux mêmes. Bientôt, ceux qui sont infectés commencent à bouger, infectant les autres et propageant ce désir, cette faim. C’est alors qu’une poignée d’infectés se réunissent... et d’autres se joignent à eux. Sous peu, une horde envahi la ville, développant l’infection sur quiconque qui entre en contact avec eux.
Et ceci, Mesdames et Messieurs, est comment une convention débute. Bienvenue à WTF 2011: l’année de l’apocalypse. L’année où Montréal va tomber sous les masses de furries.
What The Fur est fière de présenter l’Apocalypse des Zombies: La Nuit des Morts Furries

Walk for Kids Help Phone - May 2
Calling all Canadian suiters!


Some of you might already be aware of this event that happens Canada-wide, which is the Kids Help Phone Walk! Basically a fund raising event for the Kids Help Phone non-profit organization, you can donate or ask for donations yourself to do it!
Also, we have been in contact with the organizers and they are A-OK with furries showing up in suit! So, what better excuse to go out in a fursuit than do a walk to help Canadian kids around the country? :)

A team has been created for you to join in called, and I know the name is VERY CLEVER, Canadian Furry Fandom Canadien.

Feel free to join a walk around where you live and let's all make this happen! It is not only for a good cause, but also great positive advertisement for the fandom at the same time as being a perfect excuse to go out suiting. :)
The tricky part will be meeting up with others local to you. We have a fairly good sized group here in Montreal participating. And this is being held across the country, so get your paws and tails in gear!

Join the team, raise some funds if you can, and let's get out there and walk! Let's show that we can make a positive impact as a community!
