Thanks for the info! I'll dig into it. Now I need someone who has experience with flying, and I can compare the price and travel time.  :)

I would be up for that if I can't get a room share at the Estrel.  My only problem is that I'm a fursuiter so I would need to see if I could find someone who might have space to store the suit.

Hi

Me and my boyfriend are considering going to EF, but then we would like to have a room at the main hotel. It would be his first time and my second time at this con, so we would really like to go. If anyone has a room they need to get rid of, or two spots in a 3-person room, we would be interested. He is a suiter and I hope to have my suit by the time as well, very tidy and nice people.

We would prefer Tuesday to Monday, but the main priority is to go to the con.
If you have something available, or if you have questions, drop a message.

Best regards
Rikuj and Zeb bunny

Journey time by train from Rotterdam Centraal to Sonnenallee, as an example, is around 7 hours 15 minutes to 7 hours 30 minutes, the majority of which is spent on an IC between Amersfoort and Berlin Ostbahnhof.

You can book the entire journey in one go on the Deutsche Bahn website (http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en gives the English version of the page and http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/nn gives the Dutch version). "Sparpreis Europa" tickets (valid only on the trains given on the itinerary, but changeable for a fee) start from 39 each way in 2nd Class, or 59,90 each way in 1st Class.

I'll probably be booking a spot in the 2A-hostel, the closest overflow hotel.

However, I noticed there's an option to rent a 6-person bedroom privately.
Is there anyone interested in joining a 6-person room with only furries?
It beats sharing the room with non-furries, and it's cheap at 30 euro a night.

Hi there,

I'm wondering: what are the best travel options if you go by train or by plane? I don't like going by car and I'm looking for affordable alternatives for this 600 - 700 km trip. Can people recommend certain airlines? What about High Speed trains? Is a high speed trip from for example Rotterdam to Berlin (or comparable start locations in Europe) shorter or longer than an air trip _including_ check-in time, luggage pickup and other inconveniences? What about the price?

Are there people here from the Netherlands who take a train or a plane or do most of you go by car?

Hello, dear attendee!

We're happy to welcome you to Eurofurence this year.

Our conversation keeps growing significantly and we're glad to see even more happy faces each year. However, as the attendance continues to grow, we are looking for additional volunteers for our Security Team to make sure we can provide our guests with the high level of service we've established over the last 20 years.
If you're interested in volunteering at Eurofurence, now is a good time to become a member of the Security Team. You'll get to see how this convention works behind the scenes, meet a lot of people and help making community events like Eurofurence possible at all. What's not to love?

All members of Security are Furries themselves and want to enjoy Eurofurence as much as you do. We're making sure there is plenty of time to take part in the convention -- it's supposed to be a vacation, after all.

Over the years, we established a balance between fun and professionalism that is working out very well.
Your job will be to make the convention safe and enjoyable for our guests. We provide a lot more than a typical bouncer: we care about our guests and strife to make them feel welcome. A polite and friendly demeanour is an absolute must at all times. Also, you'll need to bring the following:

  • Sufficient fluency in English to communicate with our attendees. Fluency in German or other languages is a plus.
  • Willingness to work at least twelve 1-hour timeslots during the whole convention. There is a variety of duties to take on: Camp Fire, Art Show, Queue Control, Locker Service, Dances and many more require different services our team provides. We will develop your duty schedule according to your individual preferences and make sure it's not colliding with any event you want to attend.
  • Willingness to carry a handheld radio on your belt and be on standby during your off-duty time, but only for as long as you like. You can sign off, put your radio away and go have a drink at any time.
  • Punctuality and reliability. We need to be sure you will show up to your assigned duties.
  • Willingness to go through an online course regarding Security Basics and the Rules of Conduct. It won't take too long and is actually interesting. You could even learn something useful for everyday life.
  • Willingness to sign a confidentiality agreement according to German data protection laws. During your duty, you might need to handle sensitive data, for example a government-issued identity card. We take the privacy and personal data of our attendees very serious. This is where the "fun" part ends and the "professionalism" part begins.
  • A responsible and respectable behaviour - even in a situation with conflict of interests - and a drama-free reputation.
  • No tasks in other teams during the convention besides setup and teardown. We don't want to burn anyone out.

You will be provided with everything you'll need for your duties. We will not just thrust a radio into your hands and throw you to the wolves, you will get training and personal coaching. No-one works alone during their shifts and you can contact your Team Leader or Dispatch (yes, we have a whole dispatching system, custom software and all - you'll love it) at any time. After your first year, we offer advanced training that can bring you at the same level as a professional Security officer, so you'll be able to lead your own team or checkpoint.

We will conduct a short voice-chat with you to get to know you a bit. Don't worry, this is not an interrogation, but a personal chat between you and two other people from the Security Team to make sure we're on the same page about any questions you might have.

Are you interested in joining the Security Team? Please write an email to security@eurofurence.org, we will get back to you shortly. Thank you for taking the time to read this, we're looking forward to hear from you!

Hi!

I'm planning to host the Fur-e-oke (Karaoke. Furry Style) event again this year, if possible Thursday and Friday night as last year. Not sure if we will have the open stage again, but if we do, that would be the preferred place to be. Otherwise, any place where people will pass by and the hotel can serve drinks is fine :)

I will bring music, a laptop with VGA and DisplayPort outputs, one TFT (VGA input), microphones, cables and stands. I would need a projector that can pass through VGA video or a splitter, and stereo amplification.

Cheers,
Eisfuchs

I'm thinking of attending Eurofurance and I'm seeking a room share at the Estrel hotel.  I'm very quiet, don't drink, and don't smoke.  I always adhere to any rules in place regarding the room and fully respect other people's property.  I plan on staying for the whole convention so arriving on August 16th and leaving on August 21st.  I can easily pay up front for my portion of the room.  I've been to many conventions in Canada and the United States including Anthrocon, Further CONfusion, Megaplex and Equinox.  I will be bringing Sparky D with me along with his little buddy Dougal.  This will be my very first Eurofurence and hopefully the first of many.
