The first Fuzzcon occured over August 22-25, 2013.
The convention's website stated: "Fuzzcon is a small furry convention that will be held in the Belgian ardennes, starting at thursday the 22nd of August, till sunday the 25th of August. The main reason of its existence is to offer a cheaper and smaller convention than Eurofurence, where furries from Belgium and neighbouring countries can learn to know each other, relax, and have fun."
Pareldraakje was the sole organizer.
According to the convention's website:
|The events aren't set in stone yet, since most of the events will depend on the weather. The group is pretty small (a maximum of 20 people), thus it would also be possible to decide what to do at the spot. The events would all be included in the confee. None of them are set in stone yet, but below you can find a collection of activities we could possibly do during the convention.
Other than the suggestions above, you're also free to make use of the wellness facilities all day/night and enjoy yourselves inside, in the garden or in the nearby town centre. The venue is pretty much surrounded by a forest, so you could also go for a walk in the nature.
Registration and attendees
The registration prices were: "Food + drinks + stay from 22-8-2013 to 25-8-2013: 100€ Early bird (arrival on 21-8-2013 after 4 pm): +15€ Late departure (departure at 26-8-2013 before 11 am): +15€ Sponsor: +30€" to be paid by bank transfer to a specified account.
Activities, "Full pension (meals 3x a day)" and "Non-alcoholic Aldi drinks" were included in the price.
Fuzzcon 2014 was announced for July 18-21, again to take place in the Belgian Ardennes, but was subsequently put on hiatus. In a post on the Fuzzcon forum, Pareldraakje stated the convention was being put off until the summer of 2015, citing the burden of organizing everything herself, budgetary problems (paying everything out of her own pockets with a net loss of about 100€), and a lack of motivation.
