Furnal Equinox celebrated its 5th anniversary by soaring like an acrobat to new heights. Over the weekend we welcomed a new record attendance of 910 attendees, including 265 fursuiters who participated in our Saturday fursuit parade. So many people showed up that we even had to arrange an overflow hotel!
A successful circus happens thanks to many faces, and we certainly have to thank our Guests of Honour, Sandy Schreiber and Sabretoothed Ermine. Since accepting this role, they have worked together to give us wonderful artwork that can be seen on our website, conbook, T-shirts, conbadges and more. They were a joy to have this weekend. Thank you!
We also continue to succeed thanks to the dedication and efforts of a hard-working team of staff and volunteers throughout ALL of our con. Whether it's Programming, AV, IT, Con Ops, Volunteers, Gaming or of course our Security team, all came together to support and deliver a successful event. As we grow in size, our staff and volunteers must increase in order to keep pace: if you can lend a paw next year, please let us know at email@example.com.
But we are most grateful of all to our attendees. Whether you have been here all five years or this was your first year, all of the entertainment is for you, and you've helped make it such a fantastic weekend!
If you have any feedback on your con experience, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also watch us on Facebook, Twitter, FurAffinity and YouTube — and of course here on our website — for highlights from the 2014 event and information on next year's con!
We look forward to seeing you all next year at the Furry Arcade — so Press Start and join us from March 13 to 15, 2015!
