|Resources||Photos, videos, reports: Motor City Furry Con resources|
With the discontinuation of Furry Connection North in 2013, MCFC was envisaged as stepping in with the "Same time and hotel as FCN". As such, the convention was scheduled to first take place over April 11-13, 2014, at the Sheraton Detroit Novi. The Motor City Furry Con FAQ stated
|MCFC and FCN are two separate corporate entities, and while most of MCFC’s staff have attended FCN and a few FCN staff will also be working as staff for MCFC, there is no official affiliation between the two entities. FCN as an event and as a corporate is retired. MCFC does not intend to establish "FCN 2.0". However, many of our staff have attended or volunteered at FCN and do plan to continue the tradition of a relaxed social environment for furry fans.|
