A short 22 months ago we began assembling a convention called “Furlaxation”. It’s been quite a struggle and a challenge as a first year convention, but we are happy to say that Furlaxation was a success! All of you who attended deserve our everlasting thanks, because it was you that really made the convention as successful as it was.

We’d like to share some convention statistics with everyone:

Total Attendees: 241

Charity Money Raised: $590.70

Fursuiters in Parade: 43

Bottles of wine Kage consumed: 4

Amount of fun we had: Immeasurable!

Currently we are working on getting our dates for next year and we will let you all know as soon as we do! Stay tuned to our site for updates on our convention dates.[8]
