Just an FYI, if you have any info on actual attendance, additional meets, etc. please contribute! Despite me creating this page and doing many updates I am not taking hold of this page, I really would like to see more people contribute. This may very well be a historic event for the furry community, and is worth documenting in any case. TJCoyote (talk) 23:02, 6 March 2016 (EST)

What exactly is the Group column for? Is it supposed to hold the name of some [semi-]official furry organization, e.g. a community in a social network? Ambidexter (talk) 03:35, 7 March 2016 (EST)
Yes, some areas have an official, well-established group (eg. MNFurs for Minnesota, with a website, forum, etc.) while other areas have a more casual group (eg. Central NJ Furs / NJ Furs), and some showings were organized by cons (Midwest FurFest, Megaplex). Regardless of the group, usually specific people run specific events, so I listed them in a separate column to give the actual organizers credit as well. TJCoyote (talk) 21:14, 7 March 2016 (EST)
Oh, thanks for the explanation. Well, the organizer of the event in Moscow was definitely Stenveel, he negotiated with the mall about fursuiting and bowling and everything. However, there was a big crew of volunteers: photographers, fursuit handlers, security. As to the “group”, I’m not sure how to describe it. “Moscow furries”? But there were attendees from nearby towns and even people who undertook several-hour-long journeys from distant cities %) It was funny how at first the organizer announced, “Hey, fellow furries, let’s go watch Zootopia together, book tickets in the middle of rows 4-5-6!” – and we ended up occupying almost the entire screening room =D Ambidexter (talk) 07:59, 8 March 2016 (EST)
Thanks for the info, I updated the entry. Feel free to update it further. If you have a regular group with a specific name, that could be added. I went with 'Moscow area furries' for now since you suggest it's informal. But considering how organized your event staff list is, and even having a detailed seating chart, your group sure seems quite organized! TJCoyote (talk) 20:28, 8 March 2016 (EST)
