We've heard some nasty rumors going on about us, and we feel that it's time for us to lay some of those to rest. First and foremost, yes, there will be an RCFM this year! Though we've had a lot of changes in the RCFM landscape since we closed our doors for 'To The Nines' (not least of which was Brody stepping down as head cat), and a lot of complications thrown our way (malfunctioning computers are not our friends!) we're back on track and prepared to have a convention that's going to blow your socks off! It's our tenth year in existence, after all - how could it be anything but amazing? So let me wet your palettes with a few tidbits of information, so you can start to get prepared for all of the awesome that's coming your way for Memorial Day Weekend.
Hotel: In an effort to meet our convention needs, we're moving away from the Embassy this year (which, while beautiful, is just too much hotel for us. Phew!) have secured a very nice, much more affordable location near downtown Huntsville, one that's got easier access to food places and the like. The Hilton Garden Inn of South Huntsville is a pleasant hotel right around the corner from the Radisson we started at, and they're just as excited about us being there as we are! Check out some pictures here.
Website: Our website got an amazing overhaul, thanks to the most wonderful Fossil. He's done a great job helping us this year, and is super-awesome! (can we keep him?)
Staff Changes: At the end of last year, we said goodbye to Brody, and welcomed Shiro as our Head Cat. Having been with RCFM for more than half of our existence, he seems excited to be in charge! Of course, he hasn't yet witnessed the amount of joy we get from teasing our Chairman...good thing he's blonde, since that'll hide the gray we're bound to put on his head fairly well! (Are you prepared, Shiro? We are. Muahahaha...)
Also, we're excited to welcome back CORSI as our Fursuit Track Lead! Corsi is full of surprises and excitement, and this titmouse is sure to keep our suiters on their toes!
We're also planning on having a swingin' 70s Disco this year, so break out your zoot suits and the like and get ready to boogie down! Fossil has promised to teach us how to waltz, too, so maybe we'll get to show out in style. =3 Also in the works is a BRONY panel - we know that'll appeal to a lot of you out there. ^.~ *brohoof*
Pre-registration is now open! So get ready, get set - and we'll see you this Memorial Day Weekend!
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us or just reply here, and we'll get to you quickly. =3
