Cork Furmeet (short notice but organised)
« on: 08 January, 2017, 04:48:14 PM »
Rule 0 of Hackerspaces: Do Not Be On Fire.

Come one, come all furries to the cradle of Cork's biotechnology scene, Forma Labs at Grattan House on Grattan Street! https://www.google.ie/maps/place/Grattan+House,+Grattan+St,+Centre,+Cork/@51.8983381,-8.4819705,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x4844901717a06577:0x94c1b673de9d591e!8m2!3d51.8983381!4d-8.4797818?hl=en
This coming Saturday, 14th January, we'll have a dealer's den (that's for art and fursuit kind of dealings, no drugs please), fursuit walks and an introduction to the local DIY Bio lab and hackerspace in Cork, soon to be re-launched as Forma Nexus. We'll have guests from far and wide, but it'll be also quite a small meet owing to the timing, so it'll be great for everyone to have fun and chat without being lost in sheer numbers.

Cork Furmeet Saturday 14th January unless postponed. Venue: Forma Labs, Grattan House, Grattan Street during the day
12 midday to 6pm,

then off to get food, reconvene at the Web Workhouse in the evening.

Artists please bring portfolios and Fursuiters please bring fursuits, fursuit makers please bring price guides too. Gamers, bring your tabletop games of choice and we'll all try and bring some snacks and drinks, ok?
There will be rooms we can use for fursuit changing rooms and for gaming, expect the venue to be a bit chilly but that's ideal for fursuiters not to overheat in anyway. The fursuit walk will go around the city centre via the Quay Co-op, Sullivan's Quay, South Mall, Oliver Plunkett Street, Patrick Street, towards the bottom end of Shandon and back over to Grattan Street via North Main Street.
There's also a small kitchen and toilets on site and a quiet but pretty yard in which fursuit photos can be taken if the weather is good.

IF events and people conspire against us, the 14th may be downgraded to a WebWorkHouse meet, with the proper meet being postponed a week or two.

__________

Rules on NSFW: bring it in a closed folder or on a laptop, and display it facing into a corner, away from the windows, invite people to look but check they are over 18. If you think your NSFW art is a little extreme, omit it from your portfolio for the meet in favour of something a little tamer, and let those who are interested in your NSFW art know that you do more adventurous or weird works too which can be found online or commissioned.

If they are under 18, advise them to look at your SFW portfolio, which you can display more obviously.

-----------------

Note that we are adults organising this event as responsible individuals, our hosts are Cork Biomakerspace Limited who need to know that this will go without any drama, drunkenness, damage or inappropriate behaviour which might lead to reputation problems or legal problems not only for us but for them as operators of the venue. I (Danfox Davies) am a member of the board of Cork Biomakerspace Limited and so have been able to wrangle this venue for you, please don't mess up the chance to make the most of it for a fun furmeet.

I reserve the right to turf out anyone who is deemed to be acting inappropriately or otherwise causing a nuisance or trouble of any kind. I reserve the right to call the gardai if necessary. They are only around the corner.
But of course we won't NEED to do that because you're all lovely, am I right?

Be Awesome To Each Other.

Update: we now have a projector screen (and projector), glowsticks and the place has been cleaned up a bit. There is wi-fi but it's on a slow connection.

We also have a pre-meet for those who are relatively new to the fandom or to the Cork area, meeting at the 3 Fools at 11am before we aim to get to Forma before 12 midday.
