Technical thought:

How will you guarantee all mails will get through to the Estrel? Pretty sure even with basic protection Exchange will start to refuse emails from e.g. if hundreds of them come in within a few seconds, which is very likely to happen. Or thousands of emails from mixed addresses within several seconds. Who tells us they will all go through? There's usually a 5-minute delay for a mail relay to try sending an email again if the receiving end refuses an email. This can be the death for many, when some send a mail 2 minutes late and they get through.

Once the lottery has ended and the rooms have been distributed, when does the payment for your room need to be made?

In the announcement about how to prepare this mail or booking a room, there was no mentioning of a credit card number field, prevous years we always had to provide our credit card nr, I assume this field still neds to be added as well or will the hotel staff ask for this information after they received your booking request?

well the storage thing we can fix quite easily, i have a big house. an old dairy factory.
but the problem would become transport from denmark as i doubt it will fit in my little car!

As far as I can remember, there are two issues about a giant ball pit.
First: If we are buying such mass of balls, we have to keep them anywhere over the year. Store place is rare anr/or very expensive. Which brings me to the second point:
second: Renting a big ball pit is afaik very expensive, too.

We just think about this idea in older times, but both solutions were not the best at the moment.

How about a giant ballpit for the fursuiters?
A big medieval fair (MPS(Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum)) has them every time and the plastic balls are quite big.
Maybe they can recommend something.
Do you have the balls for this?

As a furry I would love that (Bazinga!).

How about you lot?

Thank you.

Yes I am maybe passionate about thinking about it, pointing people out where they're wrong or lacking in my opinion or generally have a big mouth.
But I am also incredibly lazy and selfish.
Whilst I guess I would be able to do certain things with help from others, financial support and time.
I simply just don't want to.

I fully understand the pressure on staff and volunteers about running this week of wonders and I have all the respect for them giving up their free time and sometimes maybe even sanity to make about 3500 people have the week they won't forget.
I also am just simply not interested in being part of staff or volunteering to help the convention; I'd much rather just experience the convention as a visitor.

I'm just incredibly blunt and honest to say that I am part of the group of people that would shout about a problem rather then help fix it (in this instance, its not how I live my entire life of course).
So take all I said above as you wish, by all means run ideas by me and contact me if you want to have a ... calmer talk then my rant above.
But don't expect me to be front in line to raise my hand if the call comes to people to say 'hey yeah, I'll not do what I want for a day or two and help doing things for others' I'm sorry if I gave that impression.

Who knows, things might change.
Who knows that in a few years of trying we do get the fursuit related items I brought up and I see some flaws with them I could step up.
But for Pete's sake send out that tweet asking for people who ARE frothing at the mouth ready to help instead of trying to convince the idea man to become the action man.

This post has a list of restaurants attendees have visited and had something to say about:,5777.0.html

This list is by no means an exhausting list of "bad restaurants" if that is what you seek.
I don't think any bad place will last long in a metropolitan area with this much competition near and around.

If you have the coin, all restaurants in the hotel have been fine experiences for me so far.

You gotta do something [...], not sit on your tailbases and hope it magically appears.

This is my quote of the day, maybe even month. This is so true and describes the very nature of many challenges we have to face everyday.

You seem to be very passionate about Fursuit-Events in general, and have quite some good ideas what you want to see implemented.

Ever thought about using all that energy for the greater good of all Fursuiters at EF and host the events you are desperately looking for?
This is not meant as a sarcastic comment in any way, this is meant as a honest question (better point that out before it starts some kind of misunderstanding).

EF is always looking for talented and enthusiastic people to bring new ideas / host new events, do you want to be part of that?

To avoid? I can't think of any, just check the prices and see if you are happy with things. Estrel has a few nice places to eat and there's other options locally to walk to. The house vodka is a reasonable one and if in doubt, just ask the bar staff for advice.
