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

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.

COVID-19 Report: Anthrocon and FWH

As US cases top 100,000 Anthrocon which has not officially cancelled or postponed. Announced on their site has made changes to their Registration Policy.

At this point, there are no plans to cancel Anthrocon 2020 and preparations for the convention are moving forward as normal. However, we are implementing the following options in regards to membership cancellations effective immediately:

  1. Donation of the membership costs to Anthrocon
    1. The membership will be canceled and the funds donated to Anthrocon.
  2. Deferral of the membership until 2021 (Default Selection) 
    1. If the membership is deferred you will receive a coupon code once registration for Anthrocon 2021 opens.
    2. The coupon has no cash value.  Once the membership is deferred refunds will no longer be issued.
    3. The deferred membership must be used for Anthrocon 2021. If you are unable to attend in 2021 the deferred membership will be forfeit.
  3. Partial Refund of the membership.
    1. Due to our payment processor changing full refund policies because of many Covid-19 related refunds, we are asking our attendees if they’re willing to cover refund costs. This is a small portion of the full refund amount (About 3-4%), but it would help Anthrocon to handle associated fees. Anthrocon will issue a full refund for all who wish.
    2. Request for a refund of the membership must be emailed to refunds@anthrocon.org. The email must include the following information:
      1. First and last name of the registrant.
