When Furballs Strike 37 - Mythical Creatures!

Kenmore Lanes

Our late Winter Furbowl, When Furballs Strike 37 will be on February 22, and the theme chosen via poll is "Mythical Creatures!" From Dragons to Werewolves, Fairies to Unicorns, celebrate all made-up creatures from fantasy film, lit and lore! Have fun with this accessorizing your clothes and costumes, and we'll have MANY themed prizes in the raffle! Supersponsors will get their choice of a FurLife logo item - we have new style fridge magnets with our website and Twitter handle on them (photo is in the photos section) or a rectangular button pin. We will have plenty of stock so everyone can choose what they want. GROUP PHOTO Just like WFS 36, we will be doing the photo AT THE BEGINNING before the lanes turn on for bowling, around 2pm! This way the bowling isn't interrupted and our fursuiters don't have to stay in suit for a long time waiting for the photo. I am happy to announce we will have official badged volunteer/staff at WFS. If anyone has an issue at the meet please find any of our staff members wandering the lanes during bowling and they will help you, or find someone that can. You can always talk to the friendly and helpful Kenmore Lanes staff as well. PRICING/PRE-REG Each registration comes with 2 games of bowling and shoe rental plus raffle tickets. If you would like to pre-reg (highly recommended), send your payment via Paypal to: [masked] (easy link: http://paypal.me/kijani) using the "family/friends" option, and please include your FurLife username or what name you would like to appear on the screen while bowling. If you pre-reg, there will be a separate, much faster-moving line for where you check in and pick up your raffle tickets. You may buy extra tickets at that time as well. Pre-Reg closes at NOON on February 21st (day before WFS). $10 - Bowling, shoe rental, 1 raffle ticket $13 Special - Bowling, shoe rental, 5 raffle tickets, 1 FurLife sticker decal $20 "SuperSponsor" - Bowling, shoe rental, 15 raffle tickets, 1 FurLife sticker decal, extra Supersponsor raffle ticket to win special prizes. All pre-registered SuperSponsors get a FurLife logo item as described above. Extra raffle tickets can be purchased during registration for $1 each, or 5 for $4. For on-site registration, Cash is preferred, but we are now able to take cards through a secure payment system (.50 fee per reg) at the reg desk! Yaay! IMPORTANT: If you would like to bowl in a group, please make sure ALL members pre-reg, or have someone pay for all the spots so they are saved. This prevents confusion and rearranging bowlers later on! SCHEDULE OF EVENTS The party room should be open by 11:30, we will start on-site registration by 12:30, if not earlier. I (Kijani) will be there handling check-in with Hubcap (Pre-reg). When you pay your bowling fee I will give you a lane assignment – if you want to be on a lane with somebody please check in together, as we cannot save lane spots that are unpaid. We will be doing 5 bowlers per lane. Bowling shoes are required - go to the front desk and tell the attendant you're with the FurLife group. The Fursuit Group Photo will begin staging at 2pm. If you wish to be in the photo. you must be in your costume at that time, we cannot hold up the photo for latecomers! Please remember to spread out side-to-side as much as possible, since the photo is a panoramic there is no limit to how wide it can be. Bowling will begin as soon as the photo is over, after everyone has checked in and the names are put into the computer screens. Bowling ends at 4:15pm, then we will gather in the party room for the prize raffle, do a "last call" for raffle ticket sales and then give lots of awesome stuff away! Many of our attendees also go to the group dinner, which is now at the Super China Buffet in Shoreline. We have reserved tables in the party room (on the left side of the restaurant up a small ramp) and the dinner is scheduled for 5:45pm (more details below). And did you know When Furballs Strike has a home on the web including updates, a history of the meet and lots of fun photos? Check it out at http://www.whenfurballsstrike.net ! PRIZE RAFFLE As always there will be a TON of amazing prizes for attendees to take home in our prize raffle which takes place after bowling ends (around 4:30). Mostly animal or furry-related, as well as some collectibles, nice things for your home and some Fantasy/Mythical Creature-related items per our theme. We accept donations for prizes - they must be cleared by me before being donated, so PM me or comment below. Donators get 3 free raffle tickets per prize donated (at least $10 in value, in new or like new condition), up to 9 total. For those new to the prize raffle, each ticket comes in a pair, simply separate each ticket and drop ONE of the two matching numbered tickets into the bag labeled with the prize you want to win. It's that easy! FOOD Kenmore Lanes has a full restaurant and bar for us to order from at our leisure. Please do not bring in any outside food or drink as this is against Kenmore's house policies. Things like bottled water/sport drinks kept in the party room for our fursuiters is fine and encouraged. AFTERWARDS Just like previous WFS meets, I will be giving out fun awards for high game in “classic” and “fursuit” divisions. We will also be running our prize raffle again with lots of fantastic gifts to give away for bowling with us at WFS! Additional tickets will be sold just prior to the raffle. We should be finishing up around 5:30pm. Kenmore has been a great host for us in the past and was very kind in giving us this great deal, so please help clean up after yourselves. Let's try leave the place looking cleaner than when we came in! Please RSVP as soon as you are reasonably sure you can attend so I can get a more accurate number of bowlers reported to Kenmore Lanes management. Thanks so much and see everyone at WFS 37! Any questions feel free to post here, message me on Meetup or Telegram @kijani_lion.
