FurFright has closed up shop...
For those that haven't heard the news yet, FurFright will not be going on in 2014 or beyond. It really saddens me to hear the news about a great convention seizing operations, especially since it's the closest furry con to my home. This was a real heartbreaker to both the New England region and the furry fandom.
The main reason for FurFright to discontinue was because of the events in the con chairs' personal lives and family. They must've been really devastated by what has happened lately. The statement from FF can be found here: http://furfright.livejournal.com/
While FurFright is no longer operating, this may not be the beginning of the end for furry cons in this region. Rumors are now stating that former-FurFright staff members are trying to form a new fur con under a new name. If this is true and a new con forms, it'd be really awesome - a new beginning for New England's furry community. I sure hope so.
I was really grateful to have attended a wonderful con. FurFright was an event where I met such amazing people, saw some fun panels, and made such happy memories that'll last forever. I am also grateful for the staff and volunteers for putting their time and effort into making this convention really great. I want to say "Thank you" to the staff and volunteers who made FurFright a memorable convention.
FurFright is gone, but the memories will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
