Yay for a new frontier of fun in Texas! The well-established con is Furry Fiesta in Dallas. The new Furry Invasion is a 4-hour drive south, and thoughtfully scheduled 6 months after. This fandom IS big enough for the both of them. That bodes well for success, and it already seems to be going great. They sold out their original hotel (the Marriott), and upgraded (with transfer of reservations) to a nicer place. Now it’s at San Antonio’s El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel.
What’s cool in the southwest furry scene? Besides cons, I previously posted about independent efforts to start furry dance parties (a small series by Whines, and FurNightATX by Haven, who is also the founder and fursuiter mascot of HavenCon.) Haven is one of the Guests of Honor at the upcoming ACFI, along with Telephone, Omnom, and Thorgi.
Did I say cool? This con is so far south, I think fursuiters will be glad it’s in October. So mosey on up to their registration page, and get deputized with a badge for fun. (-Patch)
