Just The Fur Weekend has finally made a decision

Dear Attendees,

The Just Fur The Weekend team has been able to work through most of the ramifications caused by the cancellation of JFTW 2020, due to the U.K. government’s recent lockdown announcement.

We want to give you as many details as possible, now that we’ve received clarification from the venue and the analysis from our finance team. In order:

  • The date of the new con is April 2nd to April 4th, 2021. Our Guests of Honor including the charity have also confirmed their attendance.

Cabincon which takes places in Scarbourgh North Bay, Australia has made their decision regrading the pandemic

Cabincon 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19

This is a message I never thought I’d have to write just three weeks ago. Heck, even a week ago I was hopeful that things might be okay by July. However, with everything going on due to the coronavirus, we’ve had to take the incredibly difficult decision to cancel Cabincon 2020.

City Fur which would be held in June has been canceled the full report can be found in the video below (It’s in Spanish).

Furry Book Review: Owo *whats this*: A Guide to the Furry Fandom by Avery Miller

I was contacted by Avery Miller more than a year ago to write a review of their book. I am sorry to say it took until now before I finally read it. For a 1st effort it’s okay, but the book is for newbie furs only. Frankly I have seen YouTube videos that cover these same topics this book covers far better. The one thing I totally found annoying was the QR codes to now get this YouTube videos. Even my own attempts to help newbies was far better than this rather short book. Let us hope Avery Miller’s next book is better.

If I have to score this I give it 2 stars out of 5

COVID-19 Report: Just The Fur UK

Just The Weekend was to take place in Bristol, England UK on April 10 – 12 but it seems to effect this convention. To quote the OFFICIAL POST

Transmission from JFTW Space command . . .

Dear attendees,

As most of you know, yesterday the government of the United Kingdom called for a three week ban on gatherings in excess of two people. This ban extends to any gathering held at a hotel or convention center. It is an attempt to protect the most vulnerable and at-risk people from the COVID-19, not only in the U.K., but around the world.

Sadly, this three week prohibition intersects with the operation dates for Just Fur The Weekend.

Talks are ongoing between event organizers and the venue to make arrangements that will satisfy all parties, but those talks are in very early stages as you might imagine. As soon as some clarity is reached, the convention will share the results with every registered attendee.

All Anyone can say right now that it won’t take place on those dates, but it also hasn’t got an official postponement either.
