It’s been a great past month. I know we’ve been silent on a couple of things that people want to know about, including an important item that many of you want to know more about. Hopefully we can help you out with that information here.
Yes finally we’re getting the information for this out. This means that those of you that want to come and join in for a day or two but don’t want to stay with all of us furry folk will have the information you need, and what you will need to keep in mind.
There are going to be two types of day passes available:
Yes, if you want to come and visit for one or two days of con you can do that! Tell your friends and let them know that they too can come and join in. They can come and see their friends, join in and listen to/watch some of the panels, and browse the artist alley for new art to buy, or artists to commission.
While this is all well and good, there are a couple of limits. Those of you attending with a day pass will not be able to join in with the camp run activities, such as archery, confidence course and air rifles, and there will also be time limits for how long you can stay at the event(Friday 2 PM - 8 PM and Saturday 10 AM - 5PM).
This is still going to be a great event with people coming from all across NZ, and one or two from further away that you can come and see. Even meet some of the people that you’ve talked to from other parts of NZ.
The t-shirt design has been finalized and will be available through our website shortly for $35. In case you don’t know the shirt features the con mascot wielding a sword and shield with his pet kea flying over his shoulder. The last details for the shirt to be sold on the website are getting set up as we speak. So expect those soon. You can however see the image below. So get ready for those.
So payment has been open for a while now and half of those registered have paid, but we still have room for more people to come and have fun at the con. Invite your friends and furry family to come along, and if you want to get your real family involved, invite them too if you want to get them into it too. We’ve also added one more shuttle run as well for after dinner for those of you that are arriving late to Christchurch (8:30 PM pick up time from the airport), save some of you late arrivals the hassle of dealing with car rental agencies for a couple of 45 minute drives.
That seems to be all for now, though we have a few more bits of information to get out to you in the next two months before con. The next update should be very soon with the con events schedule, unless something with more urgency comes up.
We will keep all of you involved for if anything happens to the con as well.
We have a new telegram announcements channel. It will be used alongside the blog, as well as our facebook page and twitter account. This will be a centralised news feed on Telegram for people who want to get all the news updates. The main news will be posted by myself, Baz or Nagahla. See below:
Just a couple of other smaller updates.
We are still looking for people to run panels. So far we have had a bunch of great suggestions from food eating contests to writing panels and fursuit tutorials. For submitting panels that you would like to run, or would like to see then please submit your ideas through the contact page here on the website.
[Update] Payments are now live!
