Furry Spring Break
Furry Spring Break (FSB) was a furry convention held in Orlando, Florida on 2-4 March 2001. (Furry Spring Break "was announced in late 1999, with a 2001 launch date" as stated in a January 2002 post by Cutter.) The convention was chaired by Matt Henry (Cutter Coon/MadBadger) with programming led by Karl F. Meyers (Carl Fox). It was held at the Ramada Resort and Convention Center.
A second FSB was planned for 8-10 March 2002 but fell through due to problems obtaining a new hotel contract. In response to the cancellation, a group of area furs, including several former FSB staffers, incorporated and created Pawpet Megaplex.
In January 2002 Karl F. Meyers posted
|We regret to announce that, due to situations beyond the control of
the staff, Furry Spring Break 2002 has been cancelled. [...]
There is a separate event being planned in Orlando over the same weekend (8-10 March, 2002); information on that event is forthcoming. However, please be advised that this new event has no relationship to Furry Spring Break, its chair, or its staff; it is a completely separate endeavor.
