Western PA Furry Weekend Announces New Dates and Venue for 2013!

Local furries and friends!

I am pleased to announce the dates have been changed for the Western PA Furry Weekend next year in order to accommodate our new single location venue.

The Western PA Furry Weekend will be held October 11, 12 & 13, 2013!

Our new location for Friday and Saturday will be the Allegheny County North Park Lodge
http://www.alleghenycounty.us/parks/images/gallery/np/lodge.aspx

With this NEW location we can keep the outdoor atmosphere that makes this event unique and combine it with the comfort an amenities of the Hotel function spaces. Plus this location triples the Square Feet of function space providing the event with plenty of room to grow! The lodge is two levels, heated and offers use of a commercial kitchen and cooler. There is also plenty of parking, a nearby athletic field as well as other Park Amenities that may be enjoyed.

The North Park Lodge does not have overnight accommodations. It is simply a large, two story, enclosed pavilion. The event is currently researching hotels near North Park for attendees to stay the night. This location will be announced after prices are negotiated and a room contract is signed.

The organizers of the Western PA Furry Weekend are excited to bring this news to you and we hope you are also.

Thank you for your attention.

Western PA Furry Weekend begins TOMORROW!!

I know everyone is talking about RainFurrest or Furlaxicon, but I don't want anyone to forget that the Western PA Furry Weekend is also taking place this weekend in Pittsburgh, PA! So if you're looking for a fun and relaxing weekend and can't afford a full out con, let me suggest you join us at the WPAFW this year! www.wpafw.org

Activities start at 7pm Friday, September 28 at the Quality Inn Pittsburgh North with an Artist's Jam followed by Dances until 1am. There's also plenty of room to socialize, play games and bounce around in your fursuit.

If Friday night is out, then come by Fireman's Park in Aspinwall at Noon on Saturday, September 29, where the Event continues at it's outdoor venue. There we'll serve up lunch and dinner, offer games and activities and close up the night with our famed Charity Raffle.

Events spin up again at the Quality Inn Pittsburgh North Saturday night where the socialization continues and we rock the night with two more Dances!

We meet up again at the Quality Inn Pittsburgh North on Sunday at 11am to head to the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium or the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (your choice) to continue the weekend's fellowship. The weekend ends with dinner at Five Guys Burgers & Fries at Pittsburgh Mills off Rt 28 north of Pittsburgh.

For more information and to see our complete schedule of events, please visit our website at www.wpafw.org!

The staff and I are looking forward to showing attendees a good time this weekend!

Morphicon Miscellanea - April 2012

-= The End is Nigh =-

Yes, folks, the long wait is almost over. With only two weeks to go until Morphicon 2012: Fables & Furry Tails you can finishing sharpening your claws and preening your coats and think ahead to packing. If you haven't already, head on over and pre-register at Morphcion.org. While the early-bird discount is over (partially because the bird was consumed) it's still an easy way to get one more thing taken care of before the con.
As always, we have a plethora of panels and almagama of activities planned to keep you entertained. The Spectacle of Doom, Fursuit Parade, and Frozen Oasis all make a return this year. We'll also have the Dealer's Den and Artist's Alley open to help you buy and sell, what else, art! The patio will be available if you simply want to hang-out and, for those of you who want to earn a discount for next year, your Gopher Wrangler would love to hear from you if you'd like to volunteer!
Feel free to contact your Morphicon staff should you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!


-= Meet the GoH's: Text Edition, Part 2 =-

Having already answered a pair of questions for you in the previous edition of Morphicon Miscellanea, Heavy Horse and Sigil, this year's Guests of Honour, agreed to answer two more. While we realize four questions are not enough to know a GoH, we do hope you stop by their respective panels at the con and learn a bit more about, and from, them.

You can find they're latest bits of knowledge at www.Morphicon.org.


-= "Yew" Know What You Want =-

Two more chapters of Heavy Horse's Yew Manor! We have taken the time to upload two of the final three chapters of this wonderful story to Morphicon.org. Heavy has agreed to read Yew Manor in its entirety at the con and we'll let him finish his story for you. At the conclusion of the con, Yew Manor will be posted in one piece on Morphicon.org. We encourage you to attend Heavy's reading to his wonderful piece so you might achieve closure just a little bit sooner.


-= Welcome to Goodbye =-

Speaking of closure, it is with a heavy heart and drooping tail I must mention your publicity fox will not be returning after this year's con. It has been a honour to serve on the Morphicon staff these past two years and I thank everyone involved and, especially, those who've enjoyed (or simply put up with) my ramblings. Have no fear, we are not planning on leaving the position vacant and are already speaking to others who have expressed interest.

That said, Morphicon is continually evolving. Furs come and go and we are always looking for those interested in helping plan and execute the next great con experience. If your ambitions are loftier than being a gopher or panelist, we encourage you to speak to someone on staff. You never know, it just may be you writing the newsletter in the future!

Thanks for the ride! - Foxx (in a box)

Bob-Tailed Foxes & One-Week T-Shirt Deadlines

Shhh! Do you hear it? The wailing that sounds like a woman's scream? Make no mistake, that is not a woman - it is a wampus cat. A very /irritated/ wampus cat. Why is Kattywampus upset? It's simple - she needs your art. She /craves/ your art. With only a week to go until the deadline for the t-shirt competition (ends March 15th!), she has received very few entries. Her appetite is insatiable and she requires quantities of artwork.

Please help. I don't want to lose my tail (which is only one of the appendages that will go missing, I'm sure). I'll do anything. How about a free Patron registration? Fine. To the winner I will give the free Patron registration AND the design on the t-shirt for everyone to wear! As a further incentive to gather art, I'll even give away a free Sponsor registration to the runner-up PLUS the cover of the pocket programming guide! And I guarantee everyone who submits art relating to Morphicon's theme of Fables & Furry Tails will get inserted into the con book! All relevant details are located on the Morphicon website (www.Morphicon.org), written in a sweet and innocent manner by said wampus (don't be fooled!!!).

Help me keep the bob-tailed fox an Aesop's fable. Send your art. Eternal thanks will be yours. And remember, avoid slinking shadows in the night. It very well could be...the Kattywampus.
