We Still Need Volunteers!

If you've planned out your convention schedule and find yourself with a few hours to spare, or perhaps more... why not volunteer under the big top?

We have a number of volunteer positions and shifts available to meet just about anyone’s schedule. Our dealers room needs assistants. Our fursuit parade needs people to make sure the fursuiters stay on course. Our masquerade will need people behind the scenes to help our performers. AV and IT need people to run cable, run soundboards, and do other technical tasks. And we can’t do it without you!

Our staff are also constantly on the lookout for new faces to fulfill even bigger roles. If you have your eye on a staff position, volunteering is a great way to get our attention.

All of our volunteers get a special volunteer button to wear with pride. We also offer additional rewards for those who are willing to go the extra mile for us:

  • If you volunteer for 8 hours over the course of the convention, you’ll get a free T-shirt.
  • For 12 hours or more you'll get a free admission to FE 2015!

If you're interested, simply e-mail us at volunteer@furnalequinox.com and tell us a little bit about yourself. Our volunteers coordinator will also be at Registration, so if you're interested in a position, stop by and chat with us. We’d love to have you working behind the scenes!

Meet the GoHs: Sandy Schreiber

Our Guests of Honour agreed to sit down with Furnal Equinox briefly prior to the con and answer a few questions about themselves.

The second half of our feature is with our International Guest of Honour — Sandy Schreiber!

Make sure to join us at the "Meet the GoHs" panel on Friday afternoon at 1 pm!

FE: You've been a long-time supporter of our convention and we're so glad to have you as a GoH! What do you enjoy most about Furnal Equinox?

Sandy: Thank you for asking me to be a GoH! I really am honored.

What do I enjoy the most about FE? I most enjoy being amongst friends here. The staff and the attendees all fit together so well... I always feel that I'm at a party with a bunch of good friends.

Charity Auction: Help The Animals

Our attendees at Furnal Equinox have made a great name for themselves by supporting the Mississauga Humane Society for the last five years. Since 2010, you've raised over $18,000 for this very worthy charity — all of the MHS's work is done by volunteers, who provide foster care for animals until they can be placed in a "Forever Home."

We are inviting all of our attendees to attend Furnal Equinox's Charity Auction, and to please be generous in bidding on the available items. However, there are other ways that you can support the charity, too!

If you have an interesting item or service that you'd like to donate (such as an art print or commission, or other unique item), please consider donating the item to the Charity Auction.

To donate, you can e-mail Shane (charity auction coordinator) at shane@furnalequinox.com. You can also drop by the auction / art show room at the convention in Golden Delicious (near the entrance to the Dealers Den) on Friday.

If you'd like to find out more about the Mississauga Humane Society's work, visit them at mississaugahumanesociety.com.

Meet the GoHs: Sabretoothed Ermine

Our Guests of Honour agreed to sit down with Furnal Equinox briefly prior to the con and answer a few questions about themselves.

First up is our Canadian Guest of Honour, joining us all the way from British Columbia -- Sabretoothed Ermine!

Make sure to join us at the "Meet the GoHs" panel on Friday afternoon at 1 pm!

FE: Congratulations on being named the Canadian Guest of Honour! What are you looking forward to at FE and in Toronto?

Ermine: Thanks! I've never been further east than Alberta before, so I'm very excited to visit somewhere so new. I joke about how smug I'll be whenever the weather comes up in conversation, but honestly I hope it's still snowy out there when I get there, I'd love to experience real Canadian winter for once.
