Three meets in two days? Heck yeah, let's make a weekend of it! 
December 14th-16th, F3 Furry Convention! Howard Johnson Inn & Convention Center 
3333 South Glenstone, Springfield, MO
After December, we will be slowing down to a more reasonable furmeet schedule, so that folks don't have to pick and choose between all of the meets, the out of town furs have less pressure to use all their money on fuel, and we can have more furs at the meets. :) Quality, not quantity! =^_^=

Animals Escape Zoos, Migrate to Missouri!
Lung Ma, Chinese Dragon, Fursona, Horns, Dragon

There was a jailbreak of epic proportions at zoos worldwide last week. According to sources across the globe, numerous animals discovered a way out, and wasted no time making their escapes. "I was in the office keeping an eye on the enclosure cameras, and all I remember is seeing the antelopes, tigers, and otters just stand up on their hind legs and start walking, like they were born to do it. Well, before I fainted, anyway. When I woke up, all the cages were empty.", said F. Uzi Lagik, of the Downtown Zoo.

While there is no word on how exactly these creatures managed this incredible feat, there have been sightings of animals calmly walking the streets in many municipalities. Scientists are baffled with the peaceful and friendly behavior of even the most aggressive species since their escape. There have been no attacks, and even when approached, they exhibit friendly curiosity, waving and happy noises. Reports are coming in from all over of even the most dangerous animals giving warm hugs to passersby. "It was so awesome! I got to hug a real dinosaur!" boasted Bonnie, 6yo, of Fuzburg. Some individuals have even said they have heard the animals speak, but we all know that's the stuff of Saturday-morning cartoons.

These impossible creatures have taken the world's imagination by storm. Stories, drawings, and art of all varieties are being produced in large quantities wherever a group of anthropomorphic* animals has been spotted. It would also seem that welcoming them gladly into the community is the best thing to do when encountering a furry biped, as businesses near such a gathering have reported a significant boost in income and the acquisition of lifelong support when they are friendly to the creatures. These funny animals also seem almost universally fond of cookies, bottled water, and having their pictures taken.

Researchers are tracking the movement of these animals, and it appears that they are moving towards the center of the United States. When interviewed, Dr. Aconic of  W.O.O.F.* said; "Judging by their trajectory, the animals will all converge on Springfield, MO, on December 14th-16th, at the Howard Jonson Inn & Convention Center."

The public is advised to joyously welcome these amazing animals whenever and wherever they are found. The authorities are urging residents to follow this migration, meet up with the furries, and have fun.
