Fur Con News: Fur-Eh! Vaccination Requirement, FurDu Sold Out

I guess the most shocking news was this FurDu has already sold out and they did this in less than an hour. How this happened? Unfortunity since the COVID situation is continuing they have to set limits on attendance. Currently somewhere around 550.

Fur Con News: FurDu Charity Numbers, Infurnity (Taiwan) Postponed

Total raised for charity during FurDU 2021 was $5,570!

This was split equally between our two charities for this year, Fresh Start Rescue and The NSW Rural Fire Service and Brigades Donations Fund.

Such an amazing amount raised considering that we were short so many attendees this year.

Infurnity Announces

Hello everyone! With the numbers of COVID-19 cases on the rise again, the Infurnity team is closely following the latest developments in Taiwan. In accordance with the adjusted epidemic prevention measurements, we have the following announcements:

  1. The previously planned registration date for Infurnity 2021 has been postponed due to the pandemic prevention policy.
    The new date will be announced in the near future. Thank you for your consideration!
  2. Already last year, an agreement was reached with the hotel to actively support and cooperate with any governmental health order.
    In case of future changes in regulations, affecting registration or reservation, we will announce relevant information as soon as possible.

We wish everyone the best – stay safe, healthy and make sure to keep following the prevention policies!

FURDU 2021 Con Book Cover

The artwork is absolutely brilliant and a full poster of this was sold at the con at auction to raise money for that year’s charity.

Fur Con News: FurDu Open Today

Under these restrictions FurDu opens

As you know with Covid, most cons didn’t run last year, and a lot are not running this year. As of typing, this FurDU is going ahead with a few important changes.

We ask that you read this announcement in full so that you know what is going on:

  • NO REGOS WILL BE SOLD FOR THIS YEAR! Do not turn up hoping to buy one at the door.
  • Right now, our hotel Mantra on View is allowed to have 500 people in total in con space, that’s 250 people per floor. We will be counting people in and out, so that this limit is observed, by the time May arrives this may change, hopefully for the better.
  • People will be temperature checked and you will be asked to sign in via a QR code as per current laws, if you refuse to do so you will not be allowed in con space.
  • We will be asking attendees to wear a mask in the Dealers Den, since keeping social distance will be a bit harder in there and we will also be limiting the number allowed in at a time.
  • Adler & Magicdawolfy will unfortunately be not able to attend, but we will have them here eventually, when it is safe to do so.
  • We do have other people in mind as our GoH so stay tuned for that!
  • Head dryers will not be set up this year in the headless lounge, it will be almost impossible to keep them sanitized, we’ll still have the fans and water available.
  • Email us at furrydownunder@gmail.com for all refunds, rollovers, and requests.

So unless your already registered you might as well stay home

But that is a good thing for you FurDu will be on Twitch TV.

So no matter where you live you will be able to enjoy this con.
