This has been an exciting year, guests! We have been quite busy hunting down artifacts, recruiting new agents, and planning methods of artifact handling and display.

The Warehouse opens its doors to the public on Thursday, September 27th, 2012, and closes on Sunday, September 30th 2012, Guests will get to view a wide variety of artifacts, experience agent training (Programming), meet Scribes (writers), Historians, and many other special top Warehouse Agents (Guests of Honor and Artists) from many other Warehouses.

In this Top Secret file you will be informed of many important debriefings of Warehouse updates and agents who will be attending, as well as other important bits of information.

A Note from the Warehouse Chair.

Hi Rainfurs, the convention is coming up soon and I hope you all are as excited as us all Agents (Staff) are.

Our Agents have been working very hard to bring you the most exciting event this year. The Warehouse Staff hopes you all will have a great experience at The Warehouse (Con). I'm sad but happy to tell you that our hotel is sold out for the first time at the Hilton, but the Holiday Inn SeaTac hotel is right across the street and they may have rooms left.

Keep watching our web page to get the latest news of what’s going on at RainFurrest. I can’t wait to see you all in September.


Warehouse Furteen Accident Report.

Casino Accident Update

Agents and Guests; this year we had expanded the warehouse to fit a casino. It looked like you were walking into the old Sahara Hotel and Casino. While the agents were testing out all the games, someone sadly (without proper authorization, mind you) used an artifact to bet with, and the next thing we knew was…..well….The entire casino disappeared!. So if during the con you see playing cards or dice, please…PLEASE!… let us know, as well, If you see people playing cards really let us know, so we can get our agents back!!


Pre-Registration is closing soon.

We wanted to let folks know that the chance to purchase a presale membership is rapidly slipping away. Our pre-registration system will close down on September 1st; after that, memberships are only available at the price of $40 at the door, so save yourself $5 and register now!

Warehouse Furteen Museum.

We will be pulling some of the more 'Furry' items from the warehouse for visitors to see, and we will also have items throughout the Warehouse (hotel).

WARNING: Please don't touch any of the Artifacts for RainFurrest! RAIn (RainFurrest Anthomorphic International), or the Warehouse (Hilton) are not responsible for what may happen. (Remember what happened to the casino?, yeah, that's what could happen.)

Warehouse Furteen Agent Training. (Events)

Eye popping agent training programs like Steampunk 101 and Steampunk Props will be available for you to learn how the old agents made their gadgets (like Nikola Tesla's Tesla gun, or hydraulic arms, armor, and attire).

Or, for the stay-in warehouse agent, we have training on documentation of artifacts and photo identification with Nude and Clothed Modeling, Music Writing, Photography and Furs, How to make a Good YouTube video, Pricing your Pieces, and more! A must for every guest in the warehouse is to learn how to entertain themselves for many years of dedication with Home Brewing Karaoke and Furry Apps.

Also, RainFurrest finally created and is running its own Music Track with the help of Agent Drewfus.

We have been able to get an early copy of the program guide online. You can get a gander at it by visiting our Events Page.

Warehouse Furteen will also be welcoming Special Agents (Guests of Honor) of other Warehouses.

Art Exhibition and Sales Specialists.

Warehouse Charity.

Warehouse Furteen would like to announce its charity for this grand event! All proceeds via charity auction and donations will be going towards Rabbit Meadows to help towards food, care, and shelter for the furry critters that have been found during bagging and tagging of artifacts.

Rabbit Meadows was originally founded in 1989, as the House Rabbit Society of Washington. In 1996, they moved into a commercial building on Lake City Way in Seattle, where we added guinea pigs, rats, hamsters and other rodents to our rescue. In 2008, we relocated our shelter back to their original location on Union Hill, leaving their retail store at the Lake City Way location. All proceeds from the store sales go to their rescue efforts.

Rabbit Meadows is currently in the process of building a two-story permanent shelter on their Redmond property. With the completion of this shelter, they will have the space to hold educational events and house additional rescue animals. They also plan on opening a rabbit, guinea pig, and rat spay/neuter clinic for low income individuals.

You Can find more about Rabbit Meadows at their websitre http://www.rabbitmeadows.org.

RainFurrest Anthology Project.

In our warehouse archives we found lots of documentation on previous historical anthologies and events. Here is what we have found: Starting last year, RainFurrest sponsored an anthology containing stories written without themes in mind. All proceeds also benefit the RainFurrest charity of that year and will continue to benefit that charity for as long as the book is being sold. After a huge success in 2011, they are back again with another anthology this year.

You can visit the RainFurrest Anthology Site for more information.

Just to let everyone know, the Hilton is full. However, do not fret, the Holiday Inn right across the street has rooms open! You can call them at (206) 248-1000, mention RainFurrest and they can get you a room all set up for you!

We wanted to take a moment to remind folks that the Hilton is a pet friendly hotel. For our guests with four footed companions, you can bring them along. However, please let the front desk know upon checking in, and please be aware there is a $50.00 non-refundable pet deposit due upon check-in.
