Q: Is there a deposit when reserving the hotel room?
A: There should not be an up front deposit when reserving.

Q: How much is parking?
A: Free! Beat that.

Q: And wi-fi?
A: Also free. Both in event spaces and guest rooms.

Q: Can I sleep in the hotel parking lot/lobby/pool/etc?
A: No. The only place on hotel property you are allowed to rest your weary head is in a guest room.

Q: Why should I stay at the hotel?
A: We hear this a lot from locals. We get it, saving money is nice. Portland is still new to having a furry convention, so this hasn't been proven yet, but... You really miss out if you don't from an events and social standpoint. I (Triss) won't do a convention I can't also stay at. Locals of other conventions usually choose to stay at the convention. Things don't always happen during reasonable daylight hours, and being able to have a safe space to relax or rest changes everything. It also makes everything feel much less hectic and time-constrained. Besides all that; every room booked is a huge help to us. In order to make each year financially viable, we commit to booking a certain number of rooms (a room block), this brings down cost (which keeps membership prices reasonable). If we can't do that, we don't survive. This is a big concern for a new convention.

Q: How can I find room and rideshares?
A: Our forum is a great place for this! Make a post in the room/rideshare section. Twitter and facebook are also options.

Q: How much are memberships?
A: For basic Attending membership pre-reg ranges from $30 to $35. After May 1st it's $40 at the door. You can snag a Sponsor membership for $60, and Patron for $100. See our registration page for more info.

Q: Will you mail me my badge/ticket?
A: No, badges are only able to be picked up at the time of the convention.

Q: How can I volunteer?
A: You should really really read our volunteer page first for info and some big things we are looking for. In the end, just send an email to staffing@furlandia.org

Q: #tangcon? #deeptang? #wheresnoodlescon? What?
A: Yeah, we don't even really know. Last year a lot of crazy tags were thought up by people at the convention. Some have stories and some don't.

Q: Speaking of; Where IS Noodles?

A: Noodles

Just look at this picture. Noodles doesn't even know where Noodles is. Don't get started.
