Hello friends!

I wanted to give a shout out for this event coming up Sunday, December 31st, 2017, The First Night Pittsburgh Parade and Furry Frolic!  The event runs from 6pm until 1am.

For the passed 6 years or so, we've been bringing smiles and laughter to the residents of the Pittsburgh Metro Area by participating in the First Night Pittsburgh Parade and then hanging out on the streets to mingle and pose for photographs.

I've been in talks with several Downtowm Pittsburgh Hotels and this year I have signed a contract with the Drury Plaza Pittsburgh Downtown hotel to host the event in their 1600 SF Coin Vault Room and provide a room block of 10 rooms at $189 flat rate for Sunday night.  Considering that there's a Steeler's game in Pittsburgh that night, this is $100 and more below the going prices elsewhere.  Downside is that you MUST make your reservations by November 29th to get this room price.  If you're not familiar with the Drury hotel chain, your room reservation gets you access to a free "5:30 Kickback" from 5:30 - 7pm, the night of your arrival (a $10 Value), Free soft drinks and snacks between 3pm and 10pm, AND a breakfast buffet the next morning (An $8 Value)

To reserve your room please use this link: https://www.druryhotels.com/Reservations.aspx?groupno=2320421

Or you may call 1-800- 325-0720 and reference Group Number 2320421.

Please let me know if you'll be attending by RSVP'ing here or sending an email to me at swiftfoxavfd(at)gmail.com with "First Night 2017" in the Subject line.  Please provide your furry name, number of folks coming and their furry names, and who of your group will be fursuiting, so I can put together my Registration spread-sheet for the event.

We ask folks attendeding to chip in $15 to help offset the cost of the meeting room space that acts as a headless lounge and a warm-up social space for folks who are attending.  Water serivce will be provided by the hotel as part of the room contract.

This event is Rain or Shine and I'm looking forward to hosting this fun and enjoyable event again this year.  I hope that you are equally as excited to join in the fun this New Year's Eve!
