Recently I posted an article on speculation that Furever West might have folded mainly do the problems related to 2021. I am very happy to say I was recently contacted by their representative @Dhammer104 to tell of what happened and are they despite everything are they planning a 2022 gathering.
Furry Times (FT): Given all that has happened, what is the current status of Furever West
Furever West (FW): Furever West is alive and well! The team is currently working on a public release of information about the 2022 convention that will happen in Laramie Wyoming this September.
FT: That is great news, I almost feel like the elephant furry in the room. What about the domain name?
FW: The domain name, most likely, is unfortunately lost. An unknown error occurred with the auto billing for the domain name, which in turn cause our hosting company (Wix) to put http://fureverwest.com up for auction. We will be rebuilding a new website, hopefully with a similar domain name
FT: So now about the upcoming convention. What do you do when your very 1st con was postponed by a bomb threat. Which from my understanding was a hoax.
FW: It was very unfortunate what happened to last years convention, and we still feel absolutely horrible for all the people who were genuinely looking forward to our convention. However, we did receive a message that a bomb would be detonated if the convention was to be held. Wether that message was genuine or a hoax, we conducted talks with local police and hotel management, and we were advised to shut down the convention to potentially avoid a large loss of life. In addition to moving venues to avoid a similar situation, we are also moving the convention to Laramie Wyoming. A more accepting city in Wyoming due to it being a college town.
FT: I assume you already have a venue
FW: Yes! Venue is booked and will be announced along with all other 2022 convention updates sometime next week.
FT: That is truly wonderful news, I really wish you the very best.
I think I’ll leave any additional questions for now. In order to wait for the official word. But if there is anything you like to say, here is your chance.
FW: Thank you for taking the time to talk to me!
It is so nice to be wrong, Furever West deserves a chance
So you have it here a Furry Times Exclusive
Furever West will return this September in Laramie, WY
