Delaware Furbowl 35 Post Meet Report  
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!
