MS Walk - Culinary Institute of America, May 4th

Just a reminder that the MS Walk at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park will be taking place this Sunday, May 4th. They would need us to be there by around 8:00am (they asked we be changed and ready by 8:30am). It will last til sometime between 12 and 1pm.

We will have a changing room, there has been construction at the school but I've been assured we'll have an area to change - might have to leave our bags with the people at the registration desk, they haven't confirmed if they'll be able to lock our stuff. The last couple years I changed in a classroom which they couldn't lock and left my bag with the ladies at the main registration area (this actually worked out better than in previous years because I could go in and out of the classroom for a break without getting someone to unlock the door, and then at the end just grabbed my stuff and changed).

The event takes place at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. We will be staying by the main building, hanging out with the parents and kids before and after their walk around the school. It's a smaller event, in the past we've done well with two or three suiters. Definitely need at least one handler for this event, the kids can get a bit energetic and it would be good to have someone watch out for any tailpullers in the bunch.

Plan to meet in the parking lot. If you arrive later than the above time just follow the signs to the registration area and you'll run into either myself or our contact (Lori) they can direct you to the changing area.

Albany Kidz Expo 2014 - Full Details: March 8th event!

As a reminder, we have been re-invited back to the Albany Kidz Expo, scheduled to take place this Saturday March 8th (10am to 5pm). This event has been great every year we've attended and our presence has gone very well with adults and kids alike. We've got the large changing area once again and confirmation on the exhibition table.

Currently the line-up is as follows:

Fursuiters:
coyoty
freakylynx

Handlers:
happypup

I will be manning the exhibition table as long as necessary, we must have at least one person stationed there at all times, but I will be running around in fursuit otherwise. If anyone is interested in manning the table it's super easy, just show off photos from past events our groups have done, hand out candy and flyers with contact info.

If anybody wishes to be added to the line-up please let me know and I'll send you the parking form which will allow you to use the garage under the convention center for free. I know this is an all day event, if you are interested in attending for just part of the day that is fine as well, it remains active throughout.


Under the cut I have attached all the details provided to me. The key things to remember - the event is from 10am to 5pm on Saturday March 8th but if you are using the parking garage you should show up earlier, it tends to fill up quickly.

As stated, I have sent a copy of the parking form to those confirmed as attending, you will need to present this when you arrive. Per the directions you will be parking in the V-Lot (P-3 North)

When you arrive you can contact me (I have not received the location of our table at the event) or if you have attended before you should be familiar with the changing area location (behind the back stage in the main exhibition area).

Directions are located under the cut.

Any questions... drop me a note :D

If you think you'll be able to attend just drop a comment here, hopefully we'll be able to have as good a turnout as past years :)




On a sidenote, I have not heard back regarding the Penguin Plunge yet but I am going to reach out to your contact again this week (normally the PP takes place the last weekend of February).

Festival of Trees, Nov 29th, Dec 1st

It's a great event that always gets me in the Christmas spirit. There are a lot of kids there, the venue is beautiful and you can ride a carousel in fursuit.

We still have spots open for the Friday and Sunday events.

Volunteer now for this excellent gig.
