Ladies and Gentlefurs it is my great pleasure to announce DiFFur 2009.

For those in the Proverbial dark let me explain; DiFFur (Dubbo [NSW] in February Furmeet) is a meet that I pulled together last year to get some NSW furs together, visit the zoo, and generally hang out. The reception was great and actually pulled a fur or two out of the works in dubbo, and with the growth and awareness of the fandom has vastly expanded in the last year or so, with the first Australian convention and all, I thought i should make this little shindig annual.

Thus i give you DiFFur 2009; With more organised events, it ensures to be a weekend to remember with a Games night, art jams, a barbeque, Video night, a visit to the acclaimed Western Plains Zoo... and maybe a little karaoke >.> <.<.

The Dates are confirmed as the 20th [Friday] to the 22nd of February and a small goodie bag for every attendee all that's left is to voice your interest, any inquiries can be PM'd to me wherever this entry is posted with specific dates of events to be announced as they are organised

Hey guys, just trying to confirm attendees for Diffur so that i can sort out certain details in advance i know of about 6 or so people who are definitely attending but as of yet i've only received one "maybe" email conformation. So please, confirm so i can organise things to go smoother [and who knows, i might be able to wrangle together a few more free accommodations]

Peace, Efimous "Fima" Zhivotnaye

Well, I'm -not- attending. Comes too close to my birthday at the start of Feb for work to even consider giving me leave, for a start.

Well Diffur 2009 came to a close on the 22nd and i was fairly happy with the turnout and i'd like to personally thank all of those that attended.

Once again things went mostly to plan, but tbh i think we all enjoyed ourselves, went bowling, shoyoen japanese gardens, did some art and watched some flicks, i'm thinking next time games night might involve poker though, i gots me a hankerin' fer some poker.

Speaking of attendees over a dozen maybes didn't show, i'm seeing a pattern here, so next year the first 3 to apply [and arrive on the day] get kick ass gifts (MFXII Ticket/collectable or utility knives up to $100 retail/ same but less retail value), free lodging for the first 8 or so and kewl little gifts for those who don't get a ticket or a sword, the applications for Diffur 2010 will begin Midnight [the beginning of] the 11th of October (one week post RADFUR).


Peace, Fima
