March 2014 Newsletter

It's almost time for the show to begin! The tents are almost ready, and the animals are ready to perform.

Here's what we have to cover in Furnal Equinox's March 2014 newsletter, the last one before the con:

Registration Info
Be ready to get your badge! We’ll have early badge pickup on Thursday evening, and registration will be open starting at 9 am each day. Make sure to bring proper ID, and the Parental Consent Form if you’re underage.

Schedule and Dealers List
We've released our schedule on our website, as well as the list of Dealers in the Dealers Den, featuring more dealers than even before! Check them out and start planning your con!

Charity Auction
The Mississauga Humane Society needs your donations and generosity! You can drop off items to donate in the Art Show room (Golden Delicious) on Friday. Make sure to bid generously.

Volunteer Behind The Scenes
We're still in need of volunteers! If you’re interested, talk to our volunteer coordinator at the convention itself.

Connect With The Performers
Make sure you keep in touch with us – tweet with the con hashtag #fe2014, and more!

Reminders From The Ticket Booth

There are only a few days left until the circus begins at Furnal Equinox 2014! No matter what your registration level is, you'll have to proceed through Registration before entering convention space. So here are our tips to make the process smoother, regardless of whether you've preregistered already or will be registering at the door.

If you preregistered, pick up your badge early! We are offering early badge pickup on Thursday night in the lobby. If you have a hotel room on Thursday night, please come visit and avoid the lineups!

For the rest of the con, Registration will be open from 9 am until 11 pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 9 am until noon on Sunday. After 6 pm you will have to pick up your badge in Con Ops - there will be signs to direct you.

Have your ID ready! To register and pick up your badge, we need a piece of identification that has your name, picture, and date of birth. Please have it out of your wallet when you are called to the reg desk.

Any of the following are acceptable ID:

  • Driver's license
  • Ontario Photo Card (or similar from other provinces/states)
  • Passport
  • Provincial health card
  • Permanent resident card
  • Other photo ID, such as a BYID card, etc.

If you're not sure whether you have proper ID, please e-mail registration@furnalequinox.com right away!

If you're under 18 as of the beginning of the con (i.e. birthdate after March 7, 1996), make sure to bring the signed Parental Consent Form signed by your parent or legal guardian.

Finally, if you haven't preregistered for the con, you can still register and pay at the door! These are the admission rates that we'll be charging:

Attending - $45
Sponsor - $80
Supersponsor - $150 (note that this does not include your name in the conbook)
Single Day - Friday - $20
Single Day - Saturday - $25
Single Day - Sunday - $20

While you're in line, make sure to stop by one of the kiosks to type in your registration information.

We will be accepting Canadian cash, as well as Interac debit, Visa, and MasterCard. US dollars will also be accepted at par, but we highly encourage you to exchange them for Canadian money.

We hope to see lots of people passing through once again this year. Enjoy your stay at the Circus!

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!
