------- Events -------
We have several events planned, such as a Guest of Honor Dinner where you and a few friends (say 50 or so) get to join the guests of honor for a nice catered dinner at the hotel. The tickets to this event are only 15$ and are available when you purchase your membership.
Some of the other events such as a ham radio panel, a fox hunt, etc.
are already being planned, but we are looking for more ideas. What do YOU want to see at a furry convention? For these ideas, please contact us through the website using this link: http://rainfurrest.com/contact.php?contact=Events
------- Dealers Den -------
Our Dealers Den is filling up, so if you'd like to be a dealer at RainFurrest, please be sure to select "Dealer Membership" when you register. When you've finished registering, our Dealer Den lead will get in touch with you. He's away on vacation at the moment so he may or may not get back to you right away. Dealers' registration is $60 and includes both your membership and a table. Extra tables may be purchased separate after our dealers' lead contacts you. You may have up to two assistants, but they must purchase their own membership separately.
------- Art Show -------
The Art Show is now ready to begin accepting panel reservations and answering any questions artists or agents may have. The Artist's Alley will also be operated under the auspice of the Art Show, so any questions about Artist's Alley should also be directed to the Art Show. You can contact the Art Show staff directly at: http://rainfurrest.com/contact.php?contact=Art+Show
