Hello folks!

The Western PA Furry Weekend is only a couple weeks away now, October 3 & 4, 2014 and it's being held at the Boyce Park Ski Lodge just outside of Monroeville, PA, a Pittsburgh suburb. www.wpafw.org

This thread is for folks who need a ride and folks who can use some fuel money and can help out local furs who rely on Public Transit to get around and don't have a car.

Feel free to post "Need a Ride" or "Driving in from <Region>" and hopefully as a community and family, we can help each other out.

Be safe!

We will be having one more day of Halloween
celebration the night after halloween. It will be a combined house event
- meaning upstairs and downstairs are open game! There will be tons of
food, drinks, music, and decor. Let out the last of your lingering
halloween spirit! Dress up in your wildest, sexiest, scariest, or most
intense costumes!

PLEASE BRING ALCHAHOL/SNACKS OR BOTH
(It will be GREATLY appreciated)

This is NOT a furry party, but is fur friendly.  That means don't get drunk and ask my non-fur guests why they are at a furry party.  I would like many furs to attend and have good representation as this community is such a big part of my life.

Drinking alcohol will be encouraged, but please don't drive drunk.  Crash space will be provided and should be used.  Seriously, if there are not drunk people passed out on my floor, something is wrong.

I am new here and to furry fandom in general.   My fursona is a wolf.  I am a 25 year old male from Hershey.  I hope to eventually have a fursuit.  At the moment NOBODY, but you all, know that i'm interested in the furry fandom.  I am actually in the process of making a Rocket Raccoon fursuit for a ComicCon, which is also a first for me.

Good day all,

I was recently contacted by Cool Vapes in Ross Park about having a couple fursuiters who vape come to their new location on McKnight Rd for a small photoshoot and promotion. Would not be very long at all. They also have offered free vape supplies for those who are willing to come.

I have specified that this would take place on a Saturday and there are already two fursuiters willing to attend. I am opening this for a few more (not too many, as I would not want to handle too many in a small store).

Anyone interested, please gmail or Facebook me RCTheFox on both or reply or PM me here. I will send them a photo of your fursuit as they are the decision makers on who ultimately gets to come.

***FYI Zippo Wolf will be running this event due to personal events going on*** Please contact him on Facebook.

 

Thank you!

I've always been terrible with introductions *sighs*. Well, for starters, I'm a furry. Happy anime smile

 

Alright, I'll get serious now. I'm TurianSpectre (username, at least), though I'd be fine with going by my real name, Robert (Rob's good too, but I draw the line at anything starting with a 'b'). I'm a freshman at the Univserity of Pittsburgh hoping to study Computer Science, History, and Creative Writing (still not sure about the mix of majors and minors). However, I'm kind of a Pennsylvania native, having moved to Irwin township in Westmoreland, PA from Tuscon, Arizona before starting grade school/kindergarten. I'm living on-campus, and despite the lack of privacy it's rather nice.

Hi everyone! I'm Sammi, but you can call me Chibi Neko! :3 I identify as a furry, although I'm very new to this whole thing. I'm really interested in learning more about the furry community & hopefully making some friends who live in the same area as me (Pittsburgh area).

I really like cats & my friends say I act like a cat, so the fersona that I'm developing now is a kitty girl. :3

My interests include anime & manga, video games, kitty girls & boys, monster girls & boy, cartoons, reading, writing, & sleeping. I like cute things a lot, but I'm also a fan of spooy things!

I'm a pretty shy person irl, so I like to get to know people online before I meet them in person. I'd love to make some new friends & have someone to go to conventions with, since I've never been to a convention before. I'm planning on going to Anthrocon in 2015, though, so I'm excited about that!

 

It's nice to meet all of you! :3

I've lived in PA for 2 1/2 years now and was told about PAFurries by a fellow fur.  Since I only know 2 furs in PA he suggested I talk to some on here.  I am thinking of going to the WPAFW.  It would be nice to meet some furs when there!

Yes, I'm an older fur, 60 years young.  Single.  Have 2 white angora mix cats.

Not really sure what to put in the tags section.

Hey guys i brought this idea up to goku and i tweeted about it on my twitter and i figured i'd put this here for more people to see.

Would anyone want to try doing a furry paintball meet sometime in October?

I asked people to respond to me on twitter and i got back about 10 that'd like to and 2 more that are maybes. So we are up to 12 there about i think a groupd of 20 could net us a discounted group rate. Have to see how silver my tonuge is.

 

Field options, all the fields willl rent us gear for those that don't have it, and if you do you'd be more than welcome to bring your own.

 

Three Rivers Paintball

location - cranberry PA

Play Style - woodsball 6 fields, 1 assualt field, 1 hyperball field

Rentals - Tippmann 98 (for those who care)

 

Steeltown Paintball (worth noting this field is still pretty new, i count that as a plus)

location - Emsworth PA

[Special Announcements!]
Going to give this meet a try again!
This first meet is VERY short notice, so it is okay if you cannot make it!
I'm trying to get the word out about it really early, but if you've got nothing to do, I'd love to have you there!
Next meet is November 1st!

Xtreme Laser Storm!
The FIRST Saturday, every OTHER month!
Months that Lazer Tag Furmeet will run are: January, March, May, July, September, November.
Why so infrequent? So other people can set up meets to do!

There is a special that runs on saturday nights called 'Tag 'til you Drag!'
For one person, it would cost $14.  That is from 10pm-12am and as per the website, guarantees 3 games!

Well I don't really know what to say. I am a senior in highschool and I don't have a fursona yet. The one thing about my fursona that I do know is that it is canine, since I am loyal to a fault. This means that if we become friends I am very likely to take a bullet for you. Even if it is the first time we meet (and I like you that is). I am in a pinch right now and don't have any paraphanelia to were and show off my pride. Looking for some central PA furs to hang out with. A good start would be if by any chance you have heard of either Latrobe or Derry. I am into any kind of gaming just pick one and I have probably played it. I am planning on going to 2015 AC and might go to a con that is close before to get prepped. I am interested in whatever opinions you may hold so feel free to speak your mind.  Big smile

Hello fellow furs!

Just wanted to give everybody a heads up that for the months of September and October... there will be no furbowl scheduled for the first half of the month- meets will only be scheduled for the third Saturday for these two months, due to other local events, gatherings, cons, school preparation, etc. The events section of the forum, Facebook page, and Twitter feed for the Pittsburgh Furbowl will be updated shortly after this post with this information. In case you were still looking to have something to do on the first Saturdays of September and October, feel free to check out the following events to entertain yourselves and have some good, clean fun with fellow locals ^^:

For the first Saturday in September, feel free to suit up at Alameda Park!

http://www.pa-furry.org/node/8978/fursuiting-fun-alameda-park 

For the first Saturday in October, join us for a weekend gathering at Boyce Park for WPAFW 2014!

The Westin Convention Center and Sheraton Station Square gift shops
(under the same manager) are now hiring. Several employees will be
returning to school, and I will probably be moving on soon as well.
Being at the Westin (where Anthrocon takes place), it is a fur-friendly job, though you won't be able to wear a tail or anything unless it's during Anthrocon. The
manager is quite friendly, and he will probably give you time off for
Anthrocon if you ask well in advance, though you may only get a day
if more than one employee is asking. Pay starts at $9.00/hour. Raises
may be available after a while, though they'll be hard to get unless
you have a clean record. Bus pass reimbursement is available, but
never cab fare.

I was asked by a few people to post the rules and explanation of a game I was introduced to in London, England. The game is called Predator vs Prey and is a live action game commonly played at events and gatherings there. 

 

The core rules of the game is rather simple you have two teams. 

The predators.

¤ They can capture and eat the prey.

¤ They gain points as a pack.

¤ The predators can pounce and pin.

Goals

The predators group gains two points for each prey they capture, one point if they choose to eat the prey.

I realize this is a big state, but what the heck, I'm trying to find some peoples on the southeast corner, but learning of others throughout the northeast, center and western sides doesn't hurt either. Maybe I'll talk more once it comes to me, right now though most of my thoughts are just floating by and not taking any form.

Hey Everyone. My name is Zack. I'm new to the site and also kinda new to the furry fandom. I love to fursuit, but I don't have a suit to match my sona yet. Speaking of sona, I am a very wolf with black markings of which I have named Scypher. Blue eyes. I have always been fascinated by wolves and so I share some traits. I am a hunter primarily deer but whatever I can go for I will. I love the outdoors and being in the wilderness. I also like to play Xbox feel free to add me. Not sure what else to put so ask me anything you want and I'll answer as soon as I see it.

Hello everyone!! I am Lumilla, friends call me Lumi. I'm a fur located in Mercer county without another local fur to call friend. I have a small group of other friends I hang with on occasion, but sometimes months or years go by before I see them again. Right now I'm in a difficult situation, so it may be a week or two between replies on here as the place I am staying doesn't have internet connection. Working to rectify that issue, hopefully. 

Anyway, I'm Lumilla. Mostly my fursona is a vixen but she was created from a deer character of mine, and she was born dragon and has a wolf mate, so she's a bit of a shapeshifter based off her needs. But my true furry self is usually vixen or wolf.

Good day everyone!

Quan, Mon (Alani) and myself are inviting all fursuiters in the area to come for a fun time just like the romp in Pittsburgh last June. The overall itineary is to have us meet up at the park itself, roam around the park, maybe do a couple games perhaps and interact with the general public if they come to us.

All are weldcome fursuit or not, we can use a couple handlers and camera folks.

Location is:
184 Alameda Park Rd, Butler, PA 16001

Right by US 422 and PA-8

The goal is to HAVE FUN!

There are changing outhouses and a poolhouse changing room on location.

Let's look to get together about 1:30 PM or so that day and bring cameras and games/ideas!

Thanks!

This is the second year for a local convention called BlurrieCon. Though we may be starting off small & all, & unfortunaltely most of the things we have are some things mostly categorized in one subject, we are trying to bring a bunch of interests together to eventually grow & have a bunch of fun every year!

It's not neccesarily furry, but we would love to have some furries come check this out~!!! =owo=

(Though I will say I am currently working on a panel where I am trying to add some fur culture into; but it's basically about, simply put, trying to help people feel comfortable about expressing theirself & their interests.)

We have a Facebook page, aswell as an official site;  feel free to give them a look ^^ (Though I will warn right now, because of a joke from last year's convention, you may see some images of Nicholas Cage =owo='')
