Gender Neutral Restrooms At MFF No Big Deal

They had them at MFF and I use them, to me no big deal. But it was to everyone else, I can say for a fact barely anyone used them and they are generally the busiest restrooms in the entire hotel.

Correction:
There actually was 386 Dealers and Artists at MFF, and not the 286 I mentioned earlier.

MFF 2017 Incidents Reported

* It was reported that Magnus Diridan was arrested while either naked or wearing a German WW1 style uniform. I heard both while there.

*Was it a fox, dog or hybrid man claims animal is a service dog. MFF handles situation man was only there for one day.

*Really there was this white guy walking around in a North Korean uniform. I know this is fact as I saw him. Since most of us (including me) have no idea what a North Korean uniform even looks like. Nothing was done until someone complained to MFF.

* Yes Adam Lambert was there at MFF, it was confirmed at the Closing Ceremony. As far as I know that was the biggest thing to hit the convention.

MFF 2017 Thoughts and Impressions Day 3

As I sit here typing this out I feel emotionally drained, I literally have tears of joy running down my face and trying to clear a stuffy nose. Why read on…

Literally the first thing I noticed when I got to the con that the crowd was down by no less than 60%

Next the artist I hired wasn’t there so a friend and I arranged to have our art mailed to us.

But that wasn’t the only surprise that day at MFF it seems Flayrah’s editor Sonious (Tantroo McNally) was hosting this panel on journalism. It seems he took over the job at Flayrah in the last couple of months. After the panel we talked and to my amazement he apologized for the site’s actions against me. He even sad it was wrong not allowing me to get my side across. We actually came to an agreement and now after over a year this matter is finally settled.

The remaining panels I saw were great, the Fursuit games had the largest crowd in like ever. More fursuiters, more audience. But shorter time 90 mins vs the 2 hours it normally runs.

I only found out why when next I went to get in line for the Closing Ceremony, yes a line had already started by then a good half hour before it began. But being a day of surprises, I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t figure out why they were bringing out the signs and panels and laying them on the floor somewhere between us regular folks and the sponsors. They were selling them for charity. make a donation and get one. So I did.

Finally we were let into what would be the best Closing Ceremony in MFF history. Why here are the facts and figures mind you there is nothing official yet but they are estimates.

Total Attendance 8700. That is a full 1200 over what Anthrocon had this year and 1700 over MFF 2016. I have to check my figure but that could be the largest jump in attendance of any fur con ever. Let me tell you everyone cheered, the board even topped it off with a quote from Uncle Kage, who not only said he didn’t care we beat Anthrocon but also congratulated MFF.

I had heard that the Hyatt was going to offer souvenir coffee mugs and glassware it seems the mugs sold out in less than 30 mins and the glassware in 3 hours.

But that wasn’t the best news it seems this year’s charity the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program was flat broke when they contacted MFF, their rep said that much. They were only operating on borrowed money for a time to help the best way that they how. I am so damn proud to be a furry right now, Between MFF, The Hyatt and all the donations they had raised $85,000 a record for any con, $12,000 alone was raised during the closing ceremony and they still were taking donations even afterwards. I can’t wait for the official numbers to come in.

Why No Images?

Usually I post 2 images which I always hope you find interesting. But today only I wish to talk about the best closing ceremony MFF has ever had. The Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program was so broke when they contacted MFF they were only operating on borrowed money. But there literally was not a dry eye in the entire audience when it was announced that through the efforts of MFF, Hyatt and many donations they has raised a total of $85,000 and still counting.

I am so proud to be a furry.
