So I'll be returning to Pittsburgh in April after a few long years away with the Navy. I was wondering if there is any interest in a return to the city meet. Should it be a dinner or a suiting event? I'll only be in town for about a month and have a lot of stuff to do with the family, most of them will be meeting my son for the first time, so I need a fairly decent idea of what to expect if I host this thing.

It's still a ways out, but there will likely be the following events going on in April:

Victory Pointe - First Sunday
Fernando's Meet - Second Friday
Schenley Plaza Meet - Fourth Friday
Furbowl - Third or Fourth Saturday

Other than those staples, I'm sure some furs would totally be up for an additional meet during the month.

Hey Deetz!

OMG, counting down the months right?  Stay safe in the meantime.

As for a "Welcome Back" or better yet "Meet the Meerkat" meet, I guess it all depends on the venue you pick whether or not fursuiting is appropriate or not.  April is hit and miss for outdoor events, and there's a limited number of indoor venues that are fursuit friendly.

You may be able to piggy back it onto an existing meet, but I recommend that you coordinate it with the event host before hand.

If that's not what you're looking for then maybe a DB meet? (Dave & Busters) Even though it's not a Fursuit friendly venue, it is ear and tail friendly.  There's decent food for a dinner event, along with other entertainment stuff to do.  It's been a while since someone organized a DB meet.

Anyway, that's my $.02. Be safe out there.

Deetz!
I haven't seen you since FWA 2015?

I'll try to make it to whatever happens, but being so far away and no details yet it's hard to say for 100%.
