This is an important announcement, so please take the time to read.

As some of you may already know, FurDU is under new management. With some having stepped down from their positions, and some new folk stepping in, we've decided to take the opportunity to re-structure, and in a more formal business structure. Though this has taken some time.

You may have noticed that the furdu.com website has gone down recently. And that we've not announced dates or the venue (or much of anything) yet. While we regret this, not much could be done while the re-structure has been under way.

Furry Down Under has become an Incorporated Association. This means that FurDU is now a form of not-for-profit organisation, which has certain advantages in the long run. It makes bookkeeping easier, and insurance cheaper. Most importantly, and the reason for filling out all the paperwork, it allows FurDU to outlast those who run it much more smoothly.

I am FurDU's new chair, with Marko as the secretary and Ristin as the treasurer. We are joined by other new helping hands as well as old, such as Oz and Foxy, and our ever-helpful volunteers.

We will work to bring you dates, venue, and registration as soon as we can, and we appreciate your patience. We look forward to seeing you all next year for another weekend of fun and fur!

Thank you for cross-posting this Foxy.

All the best to Larry, Marko, Ristin and the rest of the FurDU team, and my thanks to those whose tireless efforts have built up the convention to where it is now.

Here's to a bigger and better FurDU in 2016 and for many more years to come.

Finally get to post my memories of the con.

Bently on facebook.
Singing attempt in the talent comp.
Two writing panels.
Video game panels.
A game tournament that actually had finals that felt like finals.
No rain this year(by one week)
The mall is still lonely.
Talking on the balcony
SpaceX landing.
