    Oval Fur Meets ~ The Present and Future

    Hi there!  I would like to take a moment and talk to everyone about the Oval fur meets and what will be happening now and in the future.  So far the meets at the Oval have been a big success for MNFurs and our community members.  We not only have a big event space to house all of us, but we can bring in our own potluck-style food/beverage items and fursuit, which is something we cannot do at Perkins during the west metro meets.  With the Oval we also have other freedoms like being able to have a sound system plugged in to the room’s equipment closet, store items in the kitchen, setup tables for artwork, fursuit making, art sales, sell merchandise, Meet & Greet for new community members, and so much more.

    The Oval fur meets have been going on for a little over a year now.  These meets take time to plan and scheduling them on the right dates so they do not interfere with other events or even other conventions.  We have chosen to have them during the late afternoon and into the evening hours on a Sunday at the end of each month.  This was decided on a list of results from our community members in a forum post by our Events Department before making the fur meets a reality.  In setting up all the dates communication happens between the Events Department, Oval staff, & the MNFurs Board of Directors.  When all of the logistics are fine-tuned we get an announcement up about it for our community to see.

    The past with these fur meets have been great and we have received a lot of community feedback on what is liked and items we can improve on.  Each scheduled meet here is always a learning experience for us and we want to have it aligned to what our community members want.  Also at the Oval we’ve hosted Holiday Parties and other general winter parties.

    Fast forwarding to the present time we kicked off 2018 with a big January Holiday Party and we doubled in attendance from last year’s party.  We also received strong community feedback on how much it was enjoyed.  In February we will be going back to our regularly scheduled meets here with plenty of other opportunities for fun events in between.

    Lastly I want to talk about the future for our Oval meets.  We have meets scheduled up to June and then afterwards the next set of scheduled dates will be on hold for planning.  We want these meets to continue on for our community members, but we also need your help in making this happen.  At each Oval meet we will have a couple areas where you can make a donation.  Please feel free to donate any amount you like whether it’s $5, $10, or more.  All donations gathered go towards these meets and assist in keeping them going.

    Thank you!
