Gulf Coast Furry Con

Hi all. I'm hoping to move to NO in the next 2-3 weeks^^ As of now I don't know where I'm living yet, but I intend to apply to Tulane's grad level Classics program when I can (it's pretty small, so idk if they have a spring semester enrollment, and I think it's too late for fall? Not sure. Anyway.) Anyone have any good cheap housing/neighborhood recommendations, esp. pet-friendly ones? Pet-friendliness is the main thing I care about in a place, since it can be kinda hard convincing a landlord that 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 4 snakes won't destroy a place (we don't, honest!). I figure fellow furs might have an ear to the ground on the pet-friendly front. Any suggestions?

And I am so looking forward to being there. I will help out with con things in any way I can!

hey all, just found this group, some of you may already have met me, I'm a state away, but would be willing to help long as I'm here. I might be moving within a year though I haven't a clue where just yet.

Gulf Coast Furry Con

I know it's been awhile since the last posting, but we're still alive! Most of our work is being done in private confines of staff meetings and paperwork fun, and we haven't had much news in regards to public announcements yet. We are shooting for 2009 as our year for the con, it's a bit late to have in 2008, and Louisiana doesn't like to answer their phones in a timely manner. We're still working hard and will continue to do so! Any questions, comments, or suggestions just post and we'll respond as quickly as we are able!

Con update, mascots decided! [Jul. 15th, 2007|08:06 pm]

After a recent meeting and vote, and one last public check, the mascots of our con have been decided! The winner was Alligator and Fox, grey fox to be precise, people wanted a different kind of fox then the normal red fox. Public reaction was positive, only a few artists pulling hair at the thought of the grey fox coloration, but still willing to work with it.

The theme of the con was also decided upon: down on the bayou. Think Cajun country, the southern Louisiana variety. We will be looking for artist wishing to contribute to the conbook and t-shirts after we settle a few other factors of importance.

We are also looking for panel ideas, people who will or plan to attend and wish to run a panel, can contact me, or respond here. We are looking for topics in almost every area of the fandom, art, fursuits, spirituality, and nature are favorites and just a few examples. Panelists will be credited for their time towards volunteer hours.

We're working hard to get this up and running, and will have more updates soon!

I'm so excited we got incorprated. I posted on neworleans asking for Charities we can benefit, and I posted on furryartists asking for advice in running the artist alley I am also going to talk to the Mobicon staff about what is involved in running a slave auction. Also my friend tabbiewolf says she is going to doodle up a mascot to submit to us for our official con mascot

I won't be there at the meet this weekend to discuss things, but please keep me informed about whats going on.
Oh and finally I posted some topics I'd like to get feed back on the GCFC forum.
We need to figure out what to do for panels, guests, and a few other things

*Squee* I'm really proud of all of us of getting this going.

Location Location Location...statewise! [Jun. 3rd, 2007|08:36 pm]

alright, so first order of news and business is: Location! Only state and city wise for now, further location information will come as we have things set. As of now our target state is Louisiana, and target city is Metairie. Metairie is a prime location close to both New Orleans and Baton Rouge, the french quarter is only just up the interstate aways. There are plenty of hotels, resturaunts, stores, tours, and of course the famous(perhaps infamous?) Fat city district. Metairie lays within Jefferson Parish, which took charge if it's recovery after Katrina and is doing very well, damage is scarce and not much of the parish was flooded, so no worries about hurrican damage being an issue. The airport is only a few mintues down the interstate for those coming in by plane, there is an Amtrak about as far away as the airport, and the interstate that crosses through is a main thoroughfair for travelers in the state and going through the state.

This is the right place to look to. We'll be posting any news relative to the con and answering questions as best we can. So don't be shy, we won't bite!
