The RBW 2007 lowdown

Well its over, finally i can make a sigh of relief and sit down with a good cup of coffee and relax. I don't think I have ever had such a busy, but rewarding weekend in my life. But was it worth it? Well from everyones feedback via our website (http://www.rbw.org.uk/feedback.php), my LJ, and just speaking to people I would say Yes. Were there issues with the con, Yes of course there were. Did we learn from them? Yes!

From what I have picked up people loved the boat party and it continues to be one of the most original events on the furry calender around the globe. We had 197 people on the boat on the saturday evening and there was alot of fun to be had. The food was really good and i wasn't expecting there to be so much and of such a good quality. Was excellent! :) I was on duty during the boat party and everyone was so well behaved. Unfortunately i didn't get a chance to see 2 Gryphon on stage but there was a good few of us downstairs who had a great time. The walk back from the boat was less a stroll and more of a mini-trek, still it was a good cool down after the party.

As for the daytime programming I think all in all we put on a good range of activities and fun was had. A huge thank you to all the staff that pulled things together. We were VERY limited on space and also THE GOD DAMN PILLARS EVERYWHERE made it hard to run some of the events that required alot of space. The fursuit games, the London treasure hunt, the auction, Kage and 2 show, Fatkrakens panels, UVs classes, and all the other great events really made RBW so much more than a ordinary fur meet! The best thing about the con was seeing so many happy faces during the weekend. It really made me feel proud and glad i could help bring this to you guys and gals!

A big hand to all of our Special Guests that came along to RBW! Myself, and I think I speak on behalf of all the other staff and guests, we all really wish you all the best and hope we brought a smile to ya faces and you were able to tolerate us all!

I have alot of ideas for RBW 2008 and i'm really looking forward to improving on this year, resolving any issues that arose, and making it even more fantastic!

We can only do this if we get ya feedback so we would love you all to head over here:
http://www.rbw.org.uk/feedback.php
So please be harsh, gripe, and be frank with us about any aspect of the convention, staff, or hotel. That way we can sob, cry, maybe even flail a small amount..... and then fix it! ^.^

Once again, Thank you all you all are just lovely ^.^

Foxb!
RBW Chairman!

P.S. Next year I will ENDEAVOR not be half naked and get my revenge on Kage and see how he likes being stripped half-naked in the middle of the closing speeches! ;)

P.S.S If you have a photo gallery for your pictures from RBW please post a link here and we will link to it from the RBW website.

Over and out!
