Furs on Fire, formerly known as The Furry Countdown, is an event that was held during new year and was first held December 30 2009.

[edit] Organisation

Furs on Fire is organized by a core team, with the help of friends. The main organization consists out of four people with different tasks.

  • o kill - Kitchen staff & Audio Visual
  • Kaelin - Public Relations & fire marshall
  • Storm - Event coordinator & security
  • Tsanawo - Registrations & security

[edit] Location

2008: Kruiskwacht, Geel, Belgium. During the switch of 2008-2009, the party was held in a scouting building in the middle of a forest. The location was surrounded by trees and was divided in two buildings, one for sleeping and showering, the other building was where the party was held and where the kitchen was located. Most noteworthy about the building was the lack of central heating. 2009: De Patrijs, Evertsoord, Netherlands.

[edit] Name

The 2008 edition was conveniently named The Furry Countdown. The idea for this name came into existence when o kill and Tsanawo were brainstorming for a name and The Final Countdown by Europe played in the background. Early in 2009 the organization decided to rename the event, after brainstorming and asking for suggestions on the forum they picked their favorite, thus renaming the event "Furs on Fire".

The Furs on Fire website displayed a letter which opens

   
Furs on Fire
Dear fluffs and fluffettes,

You might have wondered why you haven’t heard a whole lot from the Furs on Fire team so far, even though the changing of the New Year is slowly crawling closer and closer.[3]

The letter includes

   
Furs on Fire
Even though we were trying to set up a new concept to work with, the energy to go through with it, to actively work on what we wanted to achieve just didn’t seem to be there. Up to the point where we sat down with each other and really asked ourselves the question: ‘Do we really want to go through with this?’

To us, the answer to that question turned out to be ‘No, we don’t..’[3]
