Well, you'll have to meet people the old-fashioned way. (Wasn't the meet-and-greet on Thursday, or am I confusing that with the mixer?) There's lots of activities JUST for socializing.

If you want to meet people before the con, get into a discussion on this board about a topic that interests you. Then you can get to know some others with the same interest.

If you want to meet people at the con, I recommend this.... Look at the printed schedule when you get your registration packet at Registration. Mark all the panels that interest you. Whenever possible, show up early for a panel. Then, discuss the subject with the others who showed up early like you did. There you go.

If you take Amtrak to AC, you can also meet some other furries on the same train as you. If nothing else, the 3 trains that cross Pittsburgh will have furries on them- the Pennsylvanian, the northbound Capitol Ltd, and the southbound Capitol Ltd.

Feel free to compliment anything you see that you like. (Nice fursuit. Nice button. Nice headband...)

MOST AC ATTENDEES DO NOT WEAR A FURSUIT OR ANY FORM OF COSTUME.

Panels! Panels! Panels!

 

Panels are a fantastic way to meet fellows with common interests and thus conversation starters, all as well through the convention is a nice plethora of just general friendly-meetin' times!

 

Just gotta be willing to check things out, and say hi a lot!

I'd be down to hang out, or wander around together in suit! Though I'd prefer if you were around my age? I'm 19.
