CALLING ALL ARTISTS!!!!!!!!!!!
Calling all artists!
Are you an artist? Then we need you!
We need artwork drawn for upcoming Phoenix Furness convention! This would be a volunteer job, as your only pay would be to see your artwork used for various things involving Phoenix Furness (website, advertising, badges, t-shirts, etc).
A few things:
-Our mascot is a coyote - the art doesn't have to contain him, but it's a plus!
-Phoenix Furness is being held February 26-28 2010 in Phoenix, AZ (@ the Grace Inn)
-The theme of the first convention is "Opening Night" -so Broadway inspired pictures are encouraged! Any Broadway show goes.. we like them all!
If you have any questions on creating art for out convention, please direct them to me, koroshinigami[at]gmail[dot]com

I, Tabbi, am hosting this year's furry New Year Party!
What can I bring?
-FUDZ! I'll provide some snacks, but the more, the merrier, right?
-Drinks, alcoholic and not
-Music (and related equipment). I have a basic stereo, but nothing high-tech.
-Fursuits! Fursuits! Fursuits! This IS a furry party!

Phoenix Furness Party at CopperCon
Hey folks I am going to throw a party at CopperCon
on Saturday August 30th, hopefully to help raise some funds for the convention and get a regular monthly social event going.
What I really could use is bookmarks or some nice fliers before Wednesday of next week, mostly directing folks to WWW.PHXFUR.COM, additionally I'd like to put together a number of play lists for music between 8:00 PM & 12:00 AM.
The first hour I'd like some 80's music, the second hour & 3rd hour probably more industrial & trance/techno after that who knows what.
Anyway I'd appreciate 30 min or so suggestions from folks so I can get something going. I'll try to bring some equipment so we can get some descent sound. Current Mood: amused

Thanks! And hope to see everyone there. We will be making lots of announcements and major decisions. So please add your input!
Phoenix Furness Meeting - AZ Center
Hey folks for those of you joining us this afternoon, it looks like we're going to meet outside the AMC Theater between the hours of 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM however there is a charge for parking and if you want to get validated (and get the lower fee) you'll probably want to either see a movie or pick up a drink or sandwich at Subway before 5:00 PM, or go to a restaurant.
The indoor mall area MAY NOT be available after 5:00 PM so there is no guarantee we'll have an indoor area to talk.
The object of the general meeting is just to reaffirm our goals, determine if we will be doing a zero con this year or next year and getting folks general input of what they would like to see and why they are here.
I'll have some cards to hand out as well for those that want to volunteer funds, people power, or ideas. After the meeting we'll probably do break out groups and let folks mingle and such. Current Mood: bouncy

Meeting Dates and Updates ^_^
From now on we will be holding meetings on every third Saturday of each month. We will announce the location of each meeting a week before hand. I would like to start moving around the Valley giving other furs the chance to attend who wouldn't otherwise. Those of us with vehicles can do a ride share with those willing to give gas money. Also I will be starting a mailing list through google. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like an invite. This will make it easier to communicate.
Our Last Meeting News:
We decided on Mascots and have our artist working n the design right now. We have membership rates and information for the mini con we are holding in September so Tell Your Furiends!
I will post the Minutes in a separate post.
Our Next Meeting will be on 4/12/08
We will be discussing locations for the actual convention and deciding what structure we would like to have for committee members.
If you would like more information please email me at email@example.com, comment on this post, or check our website at www.phoenixfur.com Current Mood: BUSY BUSY
