Mardi Gras 2009 - Furovision

Postby Barbary » Tue Feb 10, 2009 4:10 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm calling out around the world, "Are you ready for a brand new beat?"
Summer's here, and the time is right, for dancing in the street!

I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself.

But it's true, Mardi Gras is just 4 weeks away, and it's time to get
cracking and get you all involved!
The torch has been passed from Dustan and Lupie to myself, and this is
my first time organising the furry float, so bear with me.

This year, the parade's theme is "Nations United", which was a
stumper, but for which we have come up with...

The Furovision Song Contest!

For those of you who haven't heard, Eurovision is an annual
competition held among active member countries of the European
Broadcasting Union (EBU). The competition launched the careers of
stars such as ABBA and Celine Dion!

Our MASSIVE truck will be decorated as a stage, with sound and
lighting once again provided by Ivan (yay! Go Ivan!), and music being
provided by Jes'ad and Techie Fox (who've been very amused going
through past entries to the competition... like this Ukrainian Drag
Queen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqvGoVoufaE - I laughed so
hard!)
Now, we will be providing a Furovision T-Shirt to participants, along
with a confetti launcher tube to be let off at Taylor Square or the
Bobby Goldsmith Stands.

So now all we need is people to come and be in it! All fursuiters will
be on the back of the truck. After afew years of experience we know
that no-one can survive walking 2kms uphill in a full fursuit without
suffering badly from heat stress. If you really would like to march
you can in a partial suit as long as your eyes won't fog up.
In order to cover costs we will need a 40 dollar contribution from
each participant. If we get forty people, this will cover most of the
expenses.

ALSO: We will be needing two camerafurs! Preferable one stills and one
video camera, so if you have either, let me know.

Have a look at the 2006/2007 floats here:

2007 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F7jePvFpys

If you can come, please email me directly with your contact details,
and T-Shirt size. Also, please feel free to cross-post this to any
relevant forum you can see that I've missed.

LASTLY: There will be a party after the parade for furs at the
Collosseum (the home of Techie Fox, Yuumei Doragon, Harley Coyote and
myself). complete with High powered air conditioning. Even if you
can't be in the parade, come along to the party!

Lots of love!
