WPAFW 2012 Wrap-up!

Mother Nature made up for her lack of attention last year and provided us with a fabulous weekend to host the Western PA Furry Weekend 2012. (With all due respect to Mom N, as she can kick my furry little tail, she's only let us down twice in twelve years. Thanks Mom.)

The staff and I wish to thank the 98 furs from Pennsylvania and the surrounding States and Canada for attending and making all the hard work possible. I'd also like to thank our Charity Raffle Staff, everyone who donated something for this year's raffle, and of course our attendees, on behalf of ClarionPAWS, for their generosity in helping us to raise $2,230.00. Another new record amount.

As I announced at Closing Ceremonies, this will be my last year as Director of the Western PA Furry Weekend. I believe for something to continue to grow and flourish, new leadership, energy and vision need to be put into place. I believe the organization has found an individual mature enough to take the reigns of the event and keep it vibrant and viable. The WPAFW will make that selection official at our Follow Up meeting later this month.

It has been a joy and pleasure to foster this event and watch it grow over the last twelve years. It has provided a great opportunity to make new friendships and watch furs come to the event, relax and enjoy themselves. I won't go too far though; I have already been told that the event would like to retain my services in a smaller role.

We have a Survey posted on the PA Furry Forums if you would like to take a few moments and provide feedback on your experiences at this year's event.

So the Western Pennsylvania Furry Weekend 2012 is in the books. Next year we'll be hosting it the weekend of October 4-6, 2013 October 11-13, 2013 at a New Venue, a New Hotel, and under New Management! (All of which will be announced at a later date...but we're all excited about the possibilities! We hope you are also!)

Thank you!
