New, furr-curious cub here. A friendly bear named grrrowly directed me to this group. I'm located in Southern California, and would like to meet other people interested in Furr. Geography's not a big deal - it'd be great to meet local Furrs, but this bearcub also enjoys meeting interesting people regardless of location. Would especially like to hear from any newbies in my area, like myself.
No, I can't draw worth crap, but I'm working on it. I don't have a fursuit, but I think that it would be a great thing to have in the future, after some careful thought was put into it. For now, I guess that I am just a Furr-Friend.
Take it easy,

With one question that seems to be on every first timer furry convention goer's mind: What happens at these conventions?
Well this weekend is FA:United (http://www.faunited.org), and on Saturday morning I will be hosting a panel called Furst Time to a Furcon.
I'll be speaking, not as a convention chair, but as an experienced con goer. I'll mention some of the furry "staples" that you can see at a convention, and some of the word of mouth furry convention quips and etiquette that all furs learn to know.
My personal experience:( Read about Shy's personal experience in the fandomCollapse )
Basically... I would like to know from the members of this community, something that you would have a question about if it was your first time to a furry convention. After looking over my talking points for my panel, I realized some of it may have been from a biased or jaded perspective. I scrapped them all and am writing new talking points that I think will be focused on a real first time experience. Any opinions that anyone has here would be greatly appreciated :)
When you go to the site, up at the top, click on "Create a new account" and follow the steps :) easy to do and great to find out how many furs are in your state.. and if you are near any of them.. and just how far :)
It also gives you the email address or a way to contact others when you click on "Furries" and then click on the name of one of the furs in the list :)
Happy Hunting :]
Perfect opportunity to meet new furs. Have some solid drinks. And have a good time!
