MiDFur Registration Opens This Friday (10/4/09)
MIDFUR XI
WHAT: Australia’s furry convention
WHEN: December 3rd to 6th (Thursday to Sunday), 2009
WHERE: Rydges Hotel (186 Exhibition Street, Melbourne, Victoria)
WEBSITE & FORUMS: http://www.MiDFur.com.au

---------
Greetings Melbourne!

Last year MiDFur was transformed from an annual furry meet to a full blown convention with great success. With entertaining guests of honour, a convention hall and over 230 furry attendees to hang out with and meet, MiDFur was most definitely a lot of fun. Come December 2009 we get to do it all over again – but bigger and better.

Everything that made MiDFur fun is being improved and expanded upon. This includes running twice as many events in a better venue where everything is all completely centralised. On top of this standard registration is $40 cheaper than it was last year.

Read on for details on the new convention location, accommodation and – most importantly – how to register for MiDFur XI.


ACCOMODATION:
MiDFur is an annual Melbourne event that has been running since 1999. When MiDFur became a convention in 2008 it was held at the Victoria Hotel. However, this year MiDFur XI will be held at an even better location: The Rydges Hotel in Melbourne (186 Exhibition Street)

We’ve upgraded from three star accommodation to five star accommodation with Rydges Melbourne. Located in the heart of the city and a ten minute walk from either Parliament Station or Flinders Station, Rydges Melbourne is the sole location of the entire convention. This means that if you have a room at Rydges you can wake up and already be at MiDFur.

We’ve negotiated a MiDFur attendee discount for the five star, two person rooms: $149 per night. This rate applies to both the two single bed rooms and the rooms with one Queen sized bed. To get this rate just mention “MiDFur” when you phone and make a booking. Note that you can only claim this discount with a phone booking.

The phone number is 1300 857 922 when calling from Australia, 0800 446 187 from New Zealand or (+61 2) 9261 4929 for overseas callers.

For more information about Rydges Melbourne, visit their website here:
http://www.rydges.com/hotel/0/RVMELB/Rydges-Melbourne.htm


REGISTRATION:
There are limited places, so we encourage people to register as early as possible to secure your spot at MiDFur XI. You can register for MiDFur at the official website: www.MiDFur.com.au

These are the three different types of registration available:

Standard ($165)
This gives attendees access to all of the main events of the convention. This includes the panels, the dealers den and events such as the Gala Ball.

Under 18 ($165)
This registration gives under 18 attendees the exact same access as standard registration attendees. Even the Gala Ball will be open to all ages this year. We just ask that those under the age of 18 register as such for legal reasons; namely duty of care and to ensure that under age attendees aren’t drinking.

Gold Class ($265)
The Super Sponsor registration allows you to attend all of the events at MiDFur, with the added bonus of a dinner event prior to the main part of the Gala Ball, an exclusive t-shirt and an exclusive panel with the guests of honour. Note that the Super Sponsor registration is available for attendees of all ages.


CAN I HAVE A FREE REGISTRATION?
Sure. The 100th person to register will have the nice surprise of finding that their registration is free.


WHAT IF I’M ONLY FREE TO ATTEND MIDFUR FOR ONE DAY?

Then you can purchase a day pass for MiDFur. The prices vary slightly for each day and note that day passes purchased at the door are $5 extra. The prices for pre-registered day passes are as follows:

$50 - Thursday MiDFur day pass
$60 - Friday MiDFur day pass
$40 - Saturday MiDFur day pass
$50 - Sunday MiDFur day pass

 
WHEN CAN I REGISTER?
Registration opens this Friday, April 10th, 2009.

The specific times for each area are as follows:

In Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, Queensland and Tasmania:
Friday, April 10th from 9:00am

In South Australia and the Northern Territory:
Friday, April 10th from 8:30am

In Western Australia:
Friday, April 10th from 7:00am

MIDFUR POSTER & TRAILER

The theme of the convention is At The Movies. In keeping with this theme we have put together a trailer and are releasing a series of poster designs that have been given the furry treatment.

The latest poster design is based on Watchmen and can be seen here:
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2162498/

And here is the MiDFur trailer:


---------

MiDFur last year was a fantastic event and we hope that you’ll come along and make it a fantastic event again this year. Because for all the work done in providing an enjoyable location, events and guests – it’s the people who make a convention fun. Should you have any questions or suggestions, you can post on the MiDFur forums found at www.Forums.MiDFur.com.au

Movie Announcement: "The Company Of Wolves"
Hello everyone,
The Australian Centre For The Moving Image (ACMI), located in Federation Square, has some kind of film program going almost every night, at least until the end of May.
One movie I think it would be good if we all went to see is "The Company of Wolves," a little-known classic from '84. Here's an excerpt from the ACMI booklet:

"The Company of Wolves", Rated M
Directed by Neil Jordan, 95 mins, UK, 1984
Neil Jordan's reconstructed werewolf tale explores the dark, psychosexual undercurrents of the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale. Played out from the point of view of 'twelve and 3/4 years-old' Rosaleen (Sarah Patterson), it foretells the fate of all young girls who stray from the forest path (despite which, young Red simply can't resist pashing a handsome he-wolf). Jordan is an assured visual stylist who conveys the Freudian subtext of Angela Carter's gothic narrative - adapted from stories in Carter's 1979 anthology 'The Bloody Chamber' - with a heady blend of symbolism and Hammer Horror theatrics.

There are only two screenings, as this is an imported filmprint. These are on Friday 9th May or Friday 16th May, both at 10 pm.
Full price admission is $13, with concession costing $10.
We'll meet up on the night at about 9:30 pm on the steps in front of Flinder's Street Station. Perhaps after the movie, we could go for drinks at the All Nations bar on Spencer Street, just across from Southern Cross Station and down the road a bit. If there is anyone who would like to go and see this film with Amber and myself, leave a comment or drop me an email, and we can work out which screening would be more convenient.

[NEW] Iron Man Movie Meet Final Details
Hey furs,

So sorry if this disadvantages anyone, but I'm having to change the movie date to Sunday May 4th.  From the interest I've received, I'm hoping this will make it easier for those who work during the weekdays.  Plan will be to meet outside the ticket purchasing place at 4pm, followed after the movies with dinner at Star East (our favourite restaurant choice for furs).  For those of you who prefer not to see the movie, but would like to attend the dinner, movie is estimated to finish just after 6:45pm.  So here are the final details for the meet:

What:      Iron Man
Where:    Century City,  Glen Waverley
When:     Sunday 4th May, 4pm.
Who:       Anyone who wants to come.

Hope to see you all there!
Scruff.

Bowling night this Saturday
Hey guys, just a reminder of this Saturday bowling night at Knox. It booked for 7.30pm but meet at 6 to get food beforehand at 6pm. I've booked for 20 people but looking at the list only 8 so far. So if your wanting to come, please let me know ASAP.

So far:
Myself *suiting*
Gilligan *suiting*
Byftpup *coming not bowling*
Rinmax
Jack Jack Rabbit
Neg
Vlad *?*
Scrapper
Neelix
Dorian *suiting*
StickS *suiting maybe*



As some of you may know, my friend Gilligan from Perth is going to be visiting are fare city, so I thought what a good idea would be to get under way is a Bowling night for her. I think she will enjoy it and it be a good chance for her to meet some more Melb furs. So wanted to see how would be interested in going to Knox bowling alley?

Reason why here, is that they have had us before without trouble and have been really nice allowing us to fursuit and or wear furry bits. And it just Closer for few of us and for myself since no car.

When: Saturday 8th March

Time: around 6pm

Where: Cnr Adelaide St & Perth Crt, Wantima South
