All hail Uncle Kage, Dark Lord and Master of Furry fandom… nah, he’s just one very visible and committed fan who wants to set an example for how to run a good con. The real power is with many con leaders who form a shadowy, secret cabal whose name cannot be spoken.
It’s called the Furry Convention Leadership Roundtable. And now I’m in biiiiig trouble.
I’m sharing a big list of cons below. Compare it to the participants on the FCLR website – nearly all (with just a couple of exceptions) overlap with the formally incorporated portion of the list below. It seems like incorporation is for cons that Have Their Shit Together.
Thanks to Fred Patten for assembling and researching the list. He did it when I asked: is there one resource to show which cons have what structures, and when they started or ended? It would be interesting to look at their growth over time and learn about defunct cons. There’s a whole topic about what happens when it’s time to transfer or disband, and why. (With all the drama RainFurrest caused, everyone could learn something from it.)
