Is this group dead for good? I'm in Columbia and have only found a couple of furs here! I'd love to meet more, and if this group was dead it would be pretty awful. There don't seem to be a lot of furs here anymore, but if there were once enough for this group to exist then something had to have happened...

Anthrocon this year? 
10:54am 07/03/2012
  Hey, everyone.  I was wondering if anyone was wanting to go to Anthrocon this year.  If so, and you would like to carpool, I'd be more than happy to drive.  Also, my friends and I have a space left in our hotel room for the con, so you could stay with us as well.  Just let me know, and I'd be more than happy to tell you all the details!  
New Years!

Well it's that time.

Hi all,
My time in Columbia is coming to a very quick end. I'm packing up and moving back to KC today! It's been great being your moderator and getting local furs together for some fun times. I'm sorry I wasn't able to do more.

This also means that I'm looking for someone to replace me as the LJ's moderator. Please note me if you are interested or have suggestions of who I should talk to.

Thank you once again for everything. It's been great!

Good Winter Everyfur!

Here are some meet events I think we might all enjoy:

Living Windows Festival

Friday, December 2, 6-8pm. Meet at Slacker's then head west on Broadway.

District merchants have spent the last few weeks gearing up for this year´s Living Windows Festival. On the evening of Friday, December 2 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., participating businesses will be staging live performances of popular holiday scenes in their windows. This annual festival is a celebration of the holiday season and marks the beginning of extended holiday hours for many businesses in The District.

Live window displays are the main feature of the evening´s festivities, but festival goers are invited to enjoy many other activities throughout the evening, including:

· Open houses

· Holiday treats and refreshments

· Carolers and other holiday music

· Free carriage rides through downtown

· Live nativity scene

· A visit from Santa Claus (Stop by the Landmark Bank to see our visitor from the North Pole-and don´t forget to bring your camera!)

And remember to visit the North Village Arts District at Walnut & Orr as well this year!

For more details about participating shops, keep an eye on our website.

I'll start our furry tour of the Living Windows Festival at 6pm in Slackers's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Wii"

I'll be there til around 6:20 then start heading west down Broadway while taking detours down 7, 8, and 9th streets, to catch some of the Free food and Treats that are offered at places like the Candy Factory and Missouri United Methodist Church(?). I'm sure there will be others, but overall, it should be a great time. Look for me wearing the HUGE Santa's Hat.

Lakota Coffee Shop Fur Meet!!
Saturday, December 3, 2pm -?pm

I'm once again going to try to take a break and go to Lakota coffee shop around 2pm on December 3rd. Hope to see you there. It's going to be a great weekend!

Message me if you want my phone number! Thanks.

Hello everyfur!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! Mine was awesome. I got to reconnect with some friends I hadn't seen in months, and I got to eat some amazing food and pie. I also got to see the Plaza Lights turn on.

What did you do this Thanksgiving? Enjoy what's left of Black Friday. Remember Cyber Monday is coming up and December is close behind. Good luck with all the various projects and work everyone is up to!

CANCELLED!!! (I'm swamped with two massive project due Monday. If I don't turn them in, I don't graduate. Thank you for understanding).

Hi all,

I'll at Lakota Coffee Company on 9th Street (24 South Ninth Street, Columbia, MO) from 2pm to 3pm to enjoy a smoothie. Feel free to join me! ^_^

I can't guarantee anything except a chance to hang out, talk furry, and enjoy good coffee (they have bottomless cups!) before the weather turns bad again. See you there!

St. Louis Furry Activities  
12:24am 28/10/2011
  *professor voice* Good news everyone...

Just a fyi for everyone out there that will be attending our shindig this, Saturday we are located at 8125 michigan ave. St. Louis MO 63111. For those who are attending, please email me off list (Kota Wolfrunner <kotawolfrunner@gmail.com>) so I can get a head count of how many to expect here AND to let you know what apartment number it is. Words were going around saying about 20 peeps will be here but I want to make sure we are prepared for such a party. If your'e bringing a friend, please let me know ahead of time. A fur I recently talked too was confused on which larty was who's so this is an email shoutout to everyone and a FYI. We do live in an aprtment setup so if you intend to spend the night, please please consider that we do have neighbors around so around 1am we do have to keep the noise level down. On another note, for those spending the night, PLEASE bring blankets and pillows or even an air matress. We have one air matress to blow up but it can only hold so many furries :p that and we have concrete floors so if you intend to spend the night but come unprepared...I will say sorry in advance.
As far as food goes, if you can bring snacks and drinks that will be greatly appreciated and if you want to bring a dish for everyone to enjoy, by all means, go in ahead. Noko and I will be working on foods together, but with so many furs, food may be tricky so please bring what you can. Party snacks, party trays, anything festive *wags*

whelp, I think I just covered a good portion of the FYI's, if any of you have any concerns or questions, please email me off list and I will answer to the best of my abilities.

~Peace be with you all~


Sorry all! I totally forgor to mention something else about the party but if any of you want tto bring games. GO FOR IT. This is totally a gamer/nerd house so if you have a board game, vgame, party game you aant o bring on over, please do! I remember a large group of furs LOVE playing apples to apples (personally I like my drunken jenga ;) ) or even those hardcore gamer furs who like to play call of duty, smash bros, or even halo. If you got the game n controlers. Bring em. We have xboxs, a wii, and..that's about it. Lol we have one TV so we must play nice and decide on a game altogether. After y'all decide go ahead and pwn each other for all I care lol

That's all I wanted to say, like I said before in the previous email, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know! :D

Report from Otoberfest 
03:14am 23/10/2011
mood: productive
Wow. What a trip! I hope you all try to make it next year. This was a lot of fun.

Yeah, things kicked off at 8am, but it was well worth it. Stitches and I got to sample a varies of wine:
-Vidal Blanc
-2008 Norton
-Steinberg White & Red
-A Cream Wine
-and Grape Juice

After taking a tour through a real winery, we traveled all over Hermann and saw two more wineries, visited an amazing museum and had some really great food. Oak Glenn was the spot we liked best because of the music and view over the Missouri hills. really amazing. The day was also relaxing (for me) for the most part. I really hope you all can make it next year.

Oak Barrels at Stone Hill

If you want to read the full report, go check out my journal. There are more pictures and more details about the amazing things we did and saw on the trip.

Event Updates!!!

First: TigerCougar has proposed a Haunted House visit to Necropolis. It is local to Columbia and has a combo deal for hitting more than one house. According to the previous thread those who can make it will head down on the 29th around 8pm. If transportation is needed, please let us know!

Second: Stitches told me that he wants to put together a gun range meet. There are no specifics yet, but he is working on getting information on rates, cost, and how many people he can host at the range he is a member of. We'll keep you posted on what's what for this event.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. See you all at one of the upcoming meets. Have a Happy Halloween!

For all of those furs out there that are interested, Stitches74 and I will be heading out to Hermann, MO for their annual Oktoberfest!

Set in a picturesque hillside alongside the Missouri river, this will be a full day of winery and museum tours, live music, and authentic German food. Come with us to kick off the autumn season right. Also, it's their final weekend so you know it will be amazing!

For those in Columbia, we'll be meeting at Wabash Station (126 North 10th Street, Columbia, MO) at 8am. For those in Jeff City, please contact Stitches74 directly.

Don't forget to bring a bit of money to help with a gas. If you are interested in the tours, a few of them cost between $5 and $6 per person (see website above) so come prepared.

Reposted from Arch Regional Furries Yahoo Group:
Theres going to be a Halloween Party going on at Our new apartment in the Temtor

drawing closer we thought we would include all the information/details.

Whose Hosting: Kota, E, and I
Whats going on: Halloween Party

watching movies & relaxing at this point so those who have to work the next day
can get some sleep)

What can you do to help?
RSVP: (its always nice to have a general number)
By Phone: 636-577-7178 (or) By Email: Harunaka10[at]gmail.com
(Or if its simpler a response to this on the forum)
BYOB: If you intend to drink please bring your own booze and make referance to
the bottom of this email.
POTLUCK: If your interested in bringing some food, it looks like the current set
up is Potluck so if you wanna share a rockin dish, bring it on over.
GAMES: Totally into some sweet games, if your interested in bringing a game or
two go ahead and we'll make some room. (video games or board games are welcome

General: Normal stuff guys, we're inviting you to our home please respect our
Booze: If you are intending to drink, we are going to check ID, past that we are
also taking keys. To get your keys back you need to be sobered up. DRINK
RESPONSIBLY, we can understand a couple drinks but passing out on the floor in a
drunken stupor isn't cool.

Wanna crash at our place for the night?
This is perfectly fine but please be sure to give us a little warning so that we
know what to expect. Past that, also remember that if you wanna stay here you
may wanna bring a couple blankets/extra padding (blow up mattress?) as our
floors are literally made of concrete. [If you wanna borrow a mattress we have 2
twinsize (blow up) mattresses we can make available if needed. Have a wonderful
night n.n]

To change subjects. I went to Minnesota Renaissance Festival last weekend to help take down a booth I work at. While I had some time off I ran inadvertently into Beo The Wolf and Seri The Snow Leopard.

Here's the picture they took of Seri and I: http://imgboot.com/user/BeoTheWolf/Ren-Fest-2011/044.jpg
