2022 MNFurs Fall Picnic @ Blackhawk Park
Oct 1 @ 11:00 am – 6:30 pm

Hey there community members!

MNFurs is proud to announce the 10th Anniversary Fall Picnic! This year’s Fall Picnic is returning to Blackhawk Park in Eagan. Come join your fellow furs this October 1st from 11am to 8pm for food, outdoor games, and lots of fun. Our grillmasters are ready to cook up food that you bring to share.

Help support the MNFurs and the picnic by making a $15 donation to receive a limited edition 10th Anniversary badge, or by picking up some merchandise. We accept cash or credit/debit for both donations & merch.

While we’re still in a pandemic, we’re counting on individuals to decide what’s best for COVID protection practices for themselves. So, wear a mask if you’d like, but they’re not required. Vaccinations are not required but are strongly recommended.

Join us and RSVP to let your friends know you’re going by looking at the forum.

Want to perfect your famous recipe? Well you have time, let others know what you are bringing.

The picnic this year will be hosted by Yancha. If anyone has questions or wants to promote some sub-events at the picnic, use the handy-dandy contact form. Other MNFurs staff, board members, and convention staff will be on site too when/if questions arise!

We hope to see you at the Fall Picnic!

MNFurs Monthly Board Meeting @ Geek Partnership Society
Oct 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for our monthly board meeting during our open sessions. Find out about everything we do as an organization, and maybe even find a way to bring your skills to our community. We start gathering at 6 pm, start our meetings promptly at 6:30 and run as long as we need them to. The end of our meetings sometimes needs to be closed to discuss confidential information, and we ask our guests to enjoy the rest of their evening as we finish.

Questions or new business for the board can be forwarded to secretary@mnfurs.org. This may be added to the meeting agenda as we feel appropriate.

Our meetings are a hybrid of in-person at Geek Partnership Society and Google Meet for those who cannot join us.  Join with Google Meet; that link will go live between 6 and 6:30 pm.

Hours of attendance qualify for voting eligibility
