Delaware Furbowl 35 POST MEET REPORT

DE Furbowl 35 was another success! 167 people! Of course, once we passed 88 attendees there was no doubt. The 80's were alive and well and it was nice seeing the outrageous colors and fashions.

The new layout worked wonderfully with the increase in people over last month. We're plenty confident that can continue accommodating a growing average turnout.

We had a donation jar at the information desk. Placed to to help out Serpy after the tragedy. The cards were filled with condolences and other well wishes. At the end of the night over $300 had been donated and we at The Furst State want to thank everyone who helped out with kind words or dollar bills. This community takes care of their own and it's a great thing.

One thing we noticed during the night was the temperature of the main party room, which when stuffed with a mish-mash of fuzzy animal people and their adoring fans did cause the temperature to rise quite a bit. Unfortunately the temperature is actually controlled by a management company outside the bowling alley staff so it looks like we're going to have to come up with some more fans, both for the headless lounge and a few for the main room even.

A DE Furbowl tradition that has fallen to the wayside in the midst of all the organizational re-shuffling was the opening speech where we introduce the newbies! I think this is a great way to help new folks feel welcome to the TFS community and it's something I'm trying to bring back for sure. We'll probably be scheduling this event opener right before we turn on the lanes so keep an ear out for an official announcement during the event itself. And if you're a newbie hop on up and say hello to the masses!

One last thing I want to touch on. The Artist's Table has been a fantastic success so far and I always look forward to shifting a peek at what folks are working on. I'm glad to see it catch on so quickly and so well!

As always please let us know of any raves, nays, comments, or complaints that you have about the DE Furbowl! The DE Furbowl can do nothing but get stronger with your input!

Be sure to check out the group pictures!

Delaware Furbowl 34 POST MEET REPORT

DE Furbowl 34 was one of the best events we've had so far. Everything came together just right and we rounded out the night with a snazzy 137 people!

As you may have noticed we did a few things differently with the layout of the party room this time around. The DE Furbowl staff went out and measured the place to figure out exactly how to utilize the party space in the most efficient manner.

The Fursuit Headless Lounge was expanded and the entrance was flipped to the other side. We brought the fursuit lounge wall out as much as we could without interfering with the party space. This has the benefit of making it harder to just glance inside, as well as making the privacy corner a little more secure. LupineSpark also designed the fursuit bin shelves that helped pick the bins up off the floor and Sapphy did a wonderful job as the new Fursuit Lounge Director! We're confident that this design will be able to handle and grow with the DE Furbowl in the coming events!

The Artist's Alley turned out to be a huge success and we were very happy to see it finally come to fruition. The tables were something we've been trying to get together for quite a few events. It was another feature that finally come to fruition when we finally measured out and dedicated the space for them.

As you may have also noticed the group photo has moved yet again! We're going to be using the space in the front party room (near the arcade machines) for the photo from now on. The photo's look great and we were able to get a much clearer shot of everyone! We got a ladder to get above everyone else, and we laid down blue tape to help direct everyone. It all came together just right and you can check out the group shots here: Fursuiter Photo, Group Photo. Now we just have to make sure everyone looks at the right camera and not at the ground. :3

The event's theme of "Classy" was a huge success and a lot of fun. We more than likely will be using it in future DE Furbowl seasons as it's never a bad time to wear a tie!

In fact the event ran so well I can only talk about one minor quibble. And that was folks getting ahead of schedule! We love your enthusiasm for the event and folks getting there early is a pretty good problem to have. However arriving to our vendors too early does put pressure on them they weren't expecting. And it puts pressure on us as well when people start showing up while we're still setting up! However this is only a minor complaint for an otherwise perfect night.

As always please let us know of any raves, nays, comments, or complaints that you have about the DE Furbowl! The DE Furbowl can do nothing but get stronger with your input!

Can't wait to see you all again for another fun, furry night!

The Delaware Furbowl is intended to be a fun, social event for all who attend. We're here to make new friends, socialize with old ones, and have a great time.

However, there was an incident at the most recent Delaware Furbowl that is considered unacceptable. Sometime during the event, a female attendee's butt was grabbed and she was later taunted about it. It is never acceptable to touch someone you do not know in a sexually suggestive manner. No always means no.

The Furst State has a zero tolerance policy on this type of issue. Any act of sexual harassment will be met with severe disciplinary actions by The Furst State administration, up to and including removal from an event and restricting attendance to future Furst State events, as per our Standards of Conduct.

We understand that the furry fandom is an affectionate one, and for most furries the handshake has been replaced by the hug. We're a friendly bunch; hugging and nuzzles are common sights at the Delaware Furbowl. However, attendees need to keep in mind that not everyone is comfortable with affectionate touching, and you should never touch someone inappropriately without consent. This includes fursuiters and any other costumers.

In response to this incident, we will have a Delaware Furbowl staff member dedicated to security to ensure everyone is safe and having a good time.

If you are being harassed inappropriately at the Delaware Furbowl or any Furst State event, come to a staff member immediately so we can handle the situation.

If you see someone being bothered in an inappropriate manner, step in and say something. The Delaware Furbowl and The Furst State relies on it's community for keeping the event safe for everyone.

We want the Delaware Furbowl to be fun and furry, but safety for the attendees is our number one priority.
