The Maryland Furskate (MDFurskate) is a regularly occurring furry event held near Baltimore, Maryland. The event invites members of the regional furry community and members of the public to participate in a night of socializing and rollerskating.
MDFurskate was started by Irime Zane one of the local Maryland Furs Moderators as a regional recurring event similar to the Delaware Furbowl. The original idea was to have a unique event that was different from the numerous "Furbowls" occurring in the furry community that belonged to the Maryland Furry Community as a whole. Scheduled deliberately to be in the months in between Delaware Furbowl in order to avoid schedule conflicts so furries in the region could attend both.
MDFurskate was run by Irime Zane with assistance from Kit Drago. Miltonius Prime sets up a small gaming meet area at the event. It was originally co-scheduled with an event hosted by Rexxie the Cat called the "Osaka Grill and Buffet Meet" that stopped for a year, but plans to restart with the Feb planned MDFurskate.
The MDFurs through the Furskate raised money for both resources for events, such as the headless lounge built for use at events, the annual holiday party, and to donate to charity. From inception until 2017, funds donated to Charity went to Frisky's Wildlife Sanctuary through an annual group donation to the Fur the 'More charity fund. On Oct 21st 2017, after Irime Zane and Kit Drago stepped down from active moderator-ship of the MDFurs community, the MDFurskate was officially handed over to FlickyB at which time charity fund raising switched from an annual contribution to a per-event contribution. The recipient charity was changed to Rude Ranch Animal Rescue.
