COVID-19 Report: Kemoket and Canada Fur Cons

Kemoket which takes place in Japan around April has been canceled to next year.

Translated from their Homepage

Kemo Ket 9 (scheduled to be held on April 29) will be canceled based on the current situation of the spread of the new coronavirus.
We deeply apologize to everyone who was looking forward to the event.
We apologize for the announcement that was held less than one month after the event.

The Beaverton is reporting that Health Canada has given an OKAY for now for Fur Cons to take place.

“It is essential right now that Canadians stay home and practice social distancing,” stated Minister of Health Patty Hajdu. “Unless those Canadians are wearing anthropomorphic fursuits covering their body, face and hands, in which case go nuts I guess.”

What does this mean to those who attend these conventions? We will have to wait and see.

COVID-19 Report: WUFF

WUFF which is held is Lviv, Ukraine recently announced

Last year, unstable political situation in the country forced us to postpone WUFF for a year.

And even though we were very upset about it, we pulled ourselves together and set a goal to not waste any time and spend it on preparations for WUFF 2020.

We worked hard, set a new record for registration time and you know what? It was AWESOME!

We have also created lots of parties and competitions, bought prizes and different merch, we have done everything to make WUFF as fiery as never before, but it looks like the universe wants us to spend additional year to make an unbelievable convention! 

Yes, we’re postponing WUFF till 2021.

There is always one main goal for our staff team – our participants should have fun, feel themselves  comfortable and safe. And sadly this year we cannot guarantee safety to you our beloved attendees.

We want to give our sincere apologies to all attendees who were waiting and still hoping… We have tried to make it happen till this last minute, but finally decided to make this devastating decision.

So that means on top of the war with Russia they too have to deal with the virus.

COVID-19 and Wild Nights

Wild Nights Furcon which was supposed to take place on April 23-27 this year in Wilburton, OK USA has officially postponed this years convention to next year.

Wild Nights 2020 POSTPONED

Wild Nights 2020 has been officially postponed until 2021. After an emergency business meeting the decision was made to postpone Wild Nights until next year, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. These are events that are beyond our control.

The organization will be getting a refund of our deposit from the park. Having the event this year was not possible; the Oklahoma Parks department is not allowing any gathering of more than 10 people in keeping with CDC recommendations.

We’re doing this as a ‘postponement’ instead of as a ‘cancellation’ because otherwise, by our Bylaws/rules, we would have to elect new Members at Large and appoint Event Directors, etc. By handling it as a cancellation, all those folks stay in their positions. Officers, however, will need to be re-elected, and nominations are now open for them on the business forum.

What if I’ve pre-registered?
