Sponsored by The Furst State
They said it couldn't be done but once again, furries from all over the country are going to come together to ring in 2011 in the most reasonable way possible - awesome music, great food and plenty of drinks, too!
For those of you who are so quivering with joy that you can't read an entire page of text, here are the essential details:
Where: The Embassy Suites Newark-Wilmington/South, 854 S College Ave, Newark DE 19713
When: December 31st, 2010 at 8:00pm-1:30am with free AWESOME breakfast the following morning!
How Much: $36 ($35 plus one dollar service fee for the ticket) pre-registration, $40 at the door. If you're feeling extra-charitable, we have the option of buying a 'sponsor' ticket that costs $50. This confers no benefits except our undying love and gratification and the fuzzy warm feeling of knowing you helped make other people feel fuzzy and warm (thanks to all the extra booze and amenities.)
How Do I Pre-Register? Pre-registration is being handled through TicketDerby. To buy your pre-reg tickets, click here. The process is easy, but if you encounter any problems please contact me at email@example.com. We'll announce the date that pre-reg closes in a few days when we have details ironed out. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pre-register if you can. We have to pay the hotel a sum of money that contains four digits in advance of the event and would really like to not have to front it out of pocket - you'll be doing us a great service if you do. Please bring at least an ID with you so we can match it up with registration, but to make things extra fast also bring your printed ticket.
What about a room? We'll have a site soon for you to buy hotel rooms over the internet, but for the time being you can call the hotel at 1-302-368-8000 to book a room - just mention the New Year's Furry Ball. All the rooms in this hotel are suites, and have fold-out sofa beds. You can book either a room with two queen beds or one king, and both are available for the low price of $99.

The New Year's Furry Ball is back and better than ever with a new venue (that has a waterfall, SERIOUSLY folks.) All the same fun that you've had in previous years will be in full effect but with the added benefit of never having to go outside in January! Everything's bigger - the event space, the rooms, the sound system and our registration link! Also, it'll be awesome! So hah. We'll have the usual entertainment provided - video games, live DJs, lights, fursuits and lots of fun. Your registration includes an awesome buffet dinner, there's a VERY reasonably priced bar (drinks are around $5) and if you arrive early, there will be a cocktail reception with FREE DRINKS (as is my understanding) through the magical medium of drink tickets! There's a pool on-site, as well as a fitness center so you can have an awesome good time and then work out (or go night swimming, woo!) We are going to once again try to plan excursions the following day to extend the event so get in touch if there's something you think would be cool to do!
Do you want to help?
We will need volunteers to help staff registration and other random errands, so get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help. Also, we will need DJs. If you want to demo, just toss an e-mail to that same e-mail address with a demo mix and we'll see if you fit in with the vibe of the party! Please, no experimental dub-polka, keep party music in mind. 80s is acceptable, dance is good, rock is wonderful, and if you play the hamster dance I will smack you over the head with a tire iron.
Also, if you would like to donate a console for the evening, please let us know. We'll have someone watching them, and people will be be happy because of it, so that's awesome, right? Okay. Cool. Also, if you have rock band, we would like at least one rock band setup, preferrably with lots of DLC.

And we'll look forward to partying with you like it's 2999!
