Megaplex 6 March 2-4, 2007 - Jacksonville, FL
 

It's time to play! This year, we're working up a Game Show theme that is sure to entertain...especially with our members at the contestants! Keep an eye on the Events page for more details on the specific games, and how you can play! There'll be fursuit-specific games, as well as games for all our members to join in on.

It wouldn't be a game show theme without the return of a crowd favourite - the Gong Show! Our annual variety-show-with-a-twist is always entertaining...play along, even if your act isn't that great; sometimes it's better to perform and have been gonged than never to have performed at all! Contact Josh Strom at mp-variety@pawpet.org if you'd like to perform in the show.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? Our improvisational stars', that's who...and that could include you! The improv returns for another spin in 2007.

Megaplex also welcomes the return of a couple of guys who always keep us in stitches - Uncle Kage, and 2, the Ranting Gryphon will be back for 2007, with their unique stories and comedy. Kage and 2 often test out new material for Anthrocon here first, so come hear what's up!

DJ Rory will be with us, as well, spinning the tunes for a fursuit-friendly dance!

There'll be mystery amongst the merriment... more information on this in coming weeks.

For our fursuiting and puppeteering members, Santa Fox is working those tracks this year. Say, here he is now!

"Greetings, everyone!

I've been asked to take on the Fursuiting and Pawpetry Tracks at MegaPLEX this year, and I don't have much time to spare, so I need to get the ball rolling pretty quickly. So, here's a list of the panels I'd like to have hosted at MegaPLEX:

* Intro to Fursuiting
* Fursuiting Basic Performance
* Fursuiting Advanced Performance
* Fursuit Construction Mega Panel [Basics and Advanced Topics]
* Fursuit Public Performance and Safety
* Spicing Up Your Fursuiting Life
* Pawpet Performance Techniques
* Pawpet Improv Workshop
* Pawpet and Plush Construction
* Developing Pawpet Skits

If you'd be interested in co-hosting any of these fursuiting or pawpetry panels, or if there's some other kind of fursuiting or pawpetry panel that you'd like to host, then please get in touch with me ASAP. I'm also looking to have an Open Call Pawpet show for the first time this year, so if you'd like to participate in that, please get in touch with me so that I can have an idea on what kind of participation to expect."

If you're interested in helping out with the above, drop Santa a note!

Plus, we'll be bringing back the late-night showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, a smash hit from 2006! (Yes, we're bending the rating a little for this one - badges will be checked at the door, and no minor badges will be admitted.)

If you have any other ideas for a panel or event that fits into our theme for 2007, drop John Cole a line. We want your feedback on exactly what you want to see at the convention, and we want to get with folks who would like to run said panels and events. Megaplex is ultimately the members' convention, so help make it the best it can be!

We're always on the lookout for volunteers, as well. Drop us a note if you'd like to help out in March.

We will be adding more events and panels as they become available! Keep checking our site for information on additional events!
