I normally don't do con reports but this time I just might. ;) Gimme a day or two to get notes and some pics up.
In the meantime, here's an excerpt (aka edited down version of what I recall saying) from the GoH dinner. It's a bit sappy, perhaps, but if you know me you'll realize that it is most certainly sincere.
I often hear the question "What is furry fandom?"
It's you. Every one of you that says "I'm furry." Every one of you that goes to conventions, sees something that energizes you, pursues it in art, performance, writing, or other ways.
This thing called "furry" isn't something that comes from elsewhere. You define the fandom because it's something that you care about. And I hope that all of you continue to do the weird and wonderful things that make this fandom such a great place. My thanks to you.
