#103 April 2018 – Meet Lowdown

Saturday’s furmeet went exceptionally well and we would like to thank everyone who attended.

It was the biggest event we have ever run in Leeds, and the first time we have had over 100 attendees, clocking in at 113 including 32 fursuiters. The weather was perfect and we hope everyone who came had a great time.

I know the bar were delighted with the meet and this is only the start of what we hope will be a bright future together. We already have a number of ideas we would like to implement going forward, while we are always interested in feedback or suggestions from our attendees. If you have any ideas or would like to get involved with organising the meets, please let us know.

The main addition this month of course was the food service, while the newly introduced Fursuit Lounge is proving popular – it’s great to finally have one. We did buy a screen and some lights for this area, but the latter weren’t necessary in the end as the blackout curtains were removed. We’ll keep them on standby for future meets though.

As we head towards summer, we are going to start providing water for the fursuiters on the walk, as well as asking the bar to put a jug out for when we return. The water service this month worked well and we are hoping to streamline this in future.

There are a few pieces of lost property from the meet, which will be displayed on a newly created Lost Property page on this website later in the week. If you see anything that is yours, then please let us know and we can arrange to return it at a future meet.

We will also be creating a new Gallery page for the website, where you can upload your images from the meet. Keep an eye out for this too.

Finally, may we take this opportunity to thank you for making this month’s meet our biggest yet, and we hope to see you all again soon.
