Anthrocon 2014 is gaining faster than a shark on a seal! The Fursuit Track team is once again looking for panelists to donate their incredible skills to continue to make AC the best furry convention in the world. Our theme might be secret societies, but it is no secret that we have an incredible talent in this fandom, that needs to be shared with our attendees.

REMEMBER ANTHROCON IS YOUR CONVENTION. Its continued success depends on the support we get from our members. Running a panel can be a fun experience, with great rewards back to the fandom.

We are looking for animals that can run panel tracks in the following categories:

FURSUIT CONSTRUCTION, DESIGNERS, and/or CRAFTSPEOPLE

Do you like to build fursuits? Well, set a panel up and show others how much fun it can be. In the past we had people who did construction panels, workshops on specific types of design (eg. Electronics), cleaning and maintenance, and even basic sewing technique ones!

FURSUIT ENTERTAINERS, PERFORMANCE ARTISTS, and/or COSTUMERS

For those of us that have HAM in their blood stream and love to perform/work in fur suit, then this is for you!! What better way to show off all mad skills, then running a panel on how to correctly perform in public.

If you are ready to submit a panel idea, then please click on the AC fursuit track form (link below). All panel ideas MUST be submitted through it and approved.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDh1d1NhZU1HenkxRUZUQXFFWkd4R3c6MA#gid=4

We also vaule your input, if you have any ideas/suggestions on panels, please e mail them to:

For any other questions/comments/concerns, feel free to either email them to the address above, or leave a comment below!

(If you are interested in running a panel, or know anyone who might be feel free to forward this email to them.)

Thanks!

Panda, Sharky, Corso and Salem

The phrase "fursuit track team" has me envisioning Usain Bolt in a cheetah costume!

As you know sharky I submitted 2 panels yesterday so you're welcome.  XD

 

Now the teal question is, when do I find out if they've been accepted?

I've found running panels helps when dealing with a
fear of public speaking.

You speak on something you understand, you speak on
something you like, and, best of all, people know
what you're there to talk about, and they chose to
show up of their own free will.

"Hey!
I have a passion for fursuiting, especially something specific,
(fill-in-the-blank).
I think I'd like to set up a panel on (fill-in-the-blank)
this year, so I will contact the fursuiting track team and propose
my panel by emailing them and filling out the Suggest-A-Panel form."

I was trying to demonstrate the proper method, which is why I put it in quotes,
and didn't mention ANYTHING. Personally, I have no interest whatsoever in
this particular track, but I appreciate the panelists who DO and the AC'ers
who attend them. (I've run panels in the Gaming and Fandom tracks.)

My point was, don't ask what panels need people. Say what you are able to
do, and proceed from there.

He said "We need animals for panels regarding fursuit construction", which is why I asked if he meant fursuit making 101.

oh I am sorry I misunderstood you BlackJack. I fully understand that running a panel is not for everyone. However if you do change your mind, I am easy to find, just chum the waters and I will come a-running.... errr well swimming !!

Well Sharky, I tried, but it looka like the schedule's out and yet i don't see my name. Unless my panels didn't get submitted properly because i was using a crappy browser and therefore they didn't reach you. Just now thought of that... I am never using IE ever again, even in an emergency. :/
