Long Overdue Post About Furbee-cuuueee!!

First, a bit of post-FurBQ 2018 update. Really, I think our reaction can best be described as "pleasantly knocked over with a feather", on just how many different kinds of energy filled our event with love and encouraged positive experience. The event was an even larger turnout, due to all the furs…

Changing Clocks and Gears (Community Feedback)

Can it finally be "Spring" yet? While recent SoCal weather has yet to decide, we look at March as when things start to happen. Well, we can only speak for ourselves when we say that. Really, for the Southern California area, this is a year round thing. ;) Looking on recent weeks, I can say that eve…

December is Here.. Time To Chill

The first bits of the Santa Ana winds are licking at our mountaintop, and that reminds us admins that it is Winter Time. Last weekend, the holiday season kicked off with a celebration of lights. Furry event organizers from all over SoCal have more in store for you during the coldest months, and som…

Spoopy Hijinks for Halloween 2017

The signs of fall are here but I admit it kind of snuck up on me. Really, October waits for no one. Among restoration of our event galleries, we also had a good helping of new events to add to our calendar. Within that mix, there were more than just a couple events geared towards Halloween folly...…

To Clarify ... (RE: FurBQ 2017)

It would appear that there is a Facebook page that has posted an event for Spring. While SoCal Furs encourages all sorts of events (esp great events in our wonderful local regional parks), we feel that we need to make people aware that such a spring event is not being held by us even though they se…

While we do have some annual events for this time of year, we'd like to see our calendar with more events like this. Know of a meet that is coming up? Is it public (vs invite-…

Back from Califur 2016 (and new things happening)

In a swirl of suitcases and action packers, we return home just a bit more refreshed than when we left for Califur 2016. The convention was a combination of old ideas and a new setting to put it all in. Admittedly, we did not have a SIG/panel there at the con this year (first time in a long time) s…

The Meat of It… 18th Annual FurBQ

We are expecting a great turnout and a successful event, but we need a bit of extra help this year due to new Reservation Fees. Some of these fees were covered thanks to a generous donation, but paying the remaining fees reduced our ability to purchase ‘seed goods’ (the starting food and supplies t…
