Big Announcement!
      by Callista Skip and Seppel

Every year, we run a big gaming get-together where we have tons of Furoticon, board games, card games, video games, and delicious food to keep you entertained!

If you've asked us about Furo Gaming Weekend (FGW) in the last few months, you may have gotten a variety of answers, including (but not limited to), "We may be moving the date up by a couple weeks," or "We're looking to host it somewhere new." We waffled, we redirected -- basically, we weren't sure what to say.

Normally, we host FGW at our house in the fall, but something very important is coming to our home right around the time of FGW!

If you saw Callista at any of our Spring or Summer conventions, then you may already have an inkling about this next annoucement:

We're pregnant! And the baby is due in early October -- which is not great timing for our usual gang (though we're not actually complaining!).

We've been trying to figure out our options for quite a while now (hence the aforementioned waffling). On the one hand, we want to hang with our awesome fans and have fun -- on the other, we understand that we won't be able to handle nursery/house prep for the baby and FGW at the same time.

It's become certain that we have only two choices: Move to a hotel or cancel FGW 2014. One is a MUCH better option than the other, and is technically doable -- with a little help from you!

Here's the bottom line:
We need to raise $700 more in registrations (or by other means!) by Tuesday, August 12th, or else we'll need to cancel FGW 2014.

Check out how you can help, even if you aren't attending!

Red squirrel paws, gray squirrel paws, and ocelot paws. That's the most adorable thing I've ever seen. I wish you a wonderful life together as a family.

Congratulations! I'll have to see what I can do to help support you guys with this. I know I may not be able to go to FGW 2014, but I want to help out.
