Just a little heads-up with about 5 weeks to go (!), and because they've seemed to focus on Facebook for promoting everything too (at least their website is up to date though):-

Although RivFur is now sold out, the rego page is still useful for some of the events within the con, due to limited numbers and/or extra payments required:


the Laserforce evening on Saturday night (7-11pm lock-in) - costs $16.00 (+$0.80 PayPal fee) - this rego closes July 30th (the Tuesday before RivFur).
the Casino Royale event on Saturday arvo (3.15-6pm) - free but limited to 50 participants. I think you can enter on the day if spaces available, but priority will be given to those who pre-register.
the Club Hop pub-crawl on Friday night (8pm until whenever) - free to register (you have to pay for your own drinks!) but there is a (unspecified but relatively large) limit. You can put your name down on the night if there are spaces available.


So if you are thinking of attending one of these events and haven't put your name down already, you'll need to jump on said above link. You'll need the confirmation/barcode number from your rego email (the one that starts with "RF13-"...) to fill out the form.

(And if you're curious, you'll see a sharky at the first two ;) )

That's all. :)

PS: Oh, shirt orders close tomorrow (June 30th) too.

Just wondering if anyone has anything planned for the day before Rivfur? I fly in to Brisbane on Thursday morning, and would like to meet some of you furs before the con. :)

I don't know what I'm doing, but I'll be arriving early friday with RedTailedFox, and trying to find FoxTailedCritter, I could certainly see if I could find you and say hi.

Thursday is the day before the con right?
Regardless I'm unsure, but i will be going to rivfur and as always i will be walking around everywhere. (If you're going to rivfur more then likely you will see me about.)

Since it seems like they're not posting here anymore, you may wish to know that regos have been re-opened - they've shifted into a larger venue in the Mercure and that's allowed them to handle a lot more than the 200 they were originally capped at.

Second chance regos are at http://www.rivfur.net.au/register/ - they're still $60. Only thing you'll miss out on is a con-book, as they've already gone to the printers.

Pre-rego now ends July 31st. Day passes will also be available, $30 per day, at the door (cash only).

Also note post further up for rego'ing for other events, which now includes the Nerf war event which is on Sunday morning.

That's all.

ONE FINAL LAST REMINDER!!

Pre-register passes close TOMORROW the 31st of July!

Day passes of $30 will be available at the con if you miss out, or only want to go for one day.

Laser tag, furries only, will be closing tonight too, if you're not too late already.

If you're furry and you know it, pay your rego! :P


I'm going, are you?

Laser tag update:

Pre-rego for laser tag has closed but there's still a few spots left.

They'll be available on a first come/first served basis at the con-ops desk (that's the red one, they say) on Friday, until 9pm.

$20, cash only.

As Werestritchy pointed out above, the second-chance full weekend tickets close today, or it'll be $30/day at the door.

At the risk of ruining their tagline - I'll be there - and hope y'all will be there too.
That's all.

Incidentally, if you're going to laser tag, don't forget to allow the cost of getting there.

The Mercure/Ibis is a short walk from King George Square bus station, and it's only about 8 minutes on a bus to Woolloongabba bus station - and from there, it's about a 5-minute walk to Laserforce. The local fuzzies will be able to help you out if that confuses you.

If you don't have a Go card, it'll be $11.20 return.
If you do, it's about $6.20, and you'll also have more bus choices - the Maroon CityGlider bus, which runs every 15 minutes, is pre-pay only.

Don't forget that RivFur will be laying on a fursuit transport service, so if you're going to suit up there, don't fret about having to take it on the bus!

Just a small help for the interstate fuzz out there (which includes me - I've taken buses to the Gabba before but more like game-day tickets to the Brisbane Lions, haha).

And that's all. :P
