Time Event
Furry Connection North 2010 Sponsors' Lounge
Hello, this is your Director of Sponsors' Lounge and resident bartender, Deyna T. Otter. I wanted to personally thank all of our sponsors and attendees who came to the Lounge.

If you weren't at closing ceremonies, I had some fun and read of some numbers of how much food and drinks the sponsors had consumed over the course of the whole weekend. Here are some of those numbers:

65 lbs of lunch meat
75 lbs of hot dogs
25 lbs of salty snacks
10 lbs of (dry) pasta
20 lbs of pulled pork
35 lbs of fruit
25 lbs of vegetables
12 lbs of salad
15 lbs of ketchup
4 gallons each of chili, macaroni and cheese, and chicken soup
250 ice cream sandwiches
198 cookies
32 loaves of bread

We also managed to drink our way through approximately 93 callons of soda, 93 gallons of beer and 30 gallons of slushies.

Impressive, no? =3

I want to thank Chilly Mouse (aka Chef Chilly) for her contributions to the sponsors' lounge, including working for several hours with volunteers to make fresh sushi. Also Je'Thaa for helping me stay grounded and working his butt of to help get Saturday lunch and dinner on the tables. And to all my other volunteers and various staff members who helped us in the lounge, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We make an amazing team! =3

Also I have been humbled by all the compliments and praise that the Lounge received over this last weekend and I look forward to returning next year to make it even better.

Take care all. Til next year!

Thank you to all FCN staff
Dear FCN staff,

I sent a thank-you letter to the FCN contact email, but I'm pasting a similar copy here to ensure it can be seen.

I just wanted to take a moment to say that this was the best you've been yet (my second time at FCN), and probably the most enjoyable, relaxing convention I have attended to date (and I've been at this for a few years now). I can just imagine what all goes into the planning and running of the event, and felt you all deserved a great deal of praise for both accomplishing this - as well as keeping your sanity. Well, most of your sanity, anyways. =3

A few specific thoughts...
  • Sponsor's den (aka the beer/snack room): Absolutely excellent. Food far exceeded expectations, the beer was extraordinary (PLEASE bring back the nut brown ale again next year!), was kept fairly clean at all times, generally well-stocked
  • Dealer's room: Packed with enough vendors, but spacious enough that I had plenty of elbow room.
  • Artist's alley: While I wish there was room for more artists (larger room in general - not feasible I'm sure), I GREATLY appreciated the wide open space in the middle to permit elbow room.
  • Staff: Security staff were very polite, hotel staff were friendly and cheerful as well, as were the badge checkers. Interactions with them ranged from quiet and polite while smiling, to very talkative and fun to have around. Couldn't have asked for a better spectrum of personalities. Very impressed.
  • Panels/events: of the panels I attended, the panelists were all well-prepared, patient with questions, warm and friendly, and very knowledgeable.
  • General space (hallways, lobby): guests/attendees were all polite and kept the area clean. I didn't see any inappropriate behavior, either.
I had a great time, and all your efforts were both noticed and greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping to create a most memorable of weekends for both myself and my friends. I look forward to returning for FCN 2011. =3
