RCFM FREE PRESS
Issue 4, Vol. I
This morning at approximately 0437 Members of the unlawful resistance
movement attacked the very comfortable compound where KO was housed. There
were no injuries to Official RCFM guards, but KO escaped with his comrades.
Be on the lookout for KO aka KO. Our Furry Bureau of Investigations feels
confidant that he will surface in Memphis at the upcoming Mephit Fur Meet.
If you see him, it is your duty to report his location to RCFM Security.
The Art Show - Passing of the guard from Camstone Fox to Smrgol
As the Art show closed last year, Camstone, Smrgol and Kamau packed away the
last of the display panels. Even before the panels had reached their storage
locker, the scarlet fox was contemplating his next big adventure. Still, he
took a minute to review the art show results, walking through the show in
his mind - and remembering the near frenetic pace from the beginning of
check-in to the end of the bidding and check-out.
After all was said and done, many artists came up and congratulated the
staff and volunteers on a job well done at the RCFM 5 Art Show. In fact, the
Art Show staff should feel very proud that they generated the sales they did
- and that the Art Auction consisted of eight very good pieces of art which
generated much interest and more than a few extra dollars for their artists.
We were extremely pleased to have our Guests of Honor, the Carspeckens, stop
by the art show on numerous occasions, mentioning that they appreciated the
work done by the staff. We can only promise that next year will be even
In the coming months, Artists will be thinking about the theme of the
convention... Deep 6... and wondering what artwork to submit to the show.
Will we see a swashbuckling canine swinging through the rigging onto a
Spanish Galion? A deep sea diving tiger riding a sting ray? A furry King
Neptune? Or maybe an equine deep space explorer finding a mysterious number
six in a moon crater. The fox's imagination reeled at the possibilities.
Camstone will have other things to do for RCFM 6, so the art show duties
will be passed to his Kirin friend, Smrgol. But the fox is always in the
wings pondering new and devious schemes.
So what's going to change with Smrgol in charge? LOTS! In fact, artists
should realize that when they submit work to display at RCFM 6 it gets them
into the Private Artist's Reception... That's right - a PRIVATE reception
just for artists, boosters and staff! There the artists will be able to
discuss their works in a relaxed atmosphere. They will be lauded with drink
and tasty tidbits - and praise will flow freely.
What is the price of admission to this wonderous event? Well you can guess
that, can't you? Just hang a few pieces of art! Even if you only want to
display your work but not sell it we can accommodate you and it still gains
you entrance. So sign up for a panel or two ? there are only 20 left to
We are working hard on this and other interesting things even as you read
this text - including new ways to submit the forms for the art show. It will
be even easier than last year! That's right... easier? Everyone likes
easier... How can we do this you ask? Well... it's a secret right now...
and besides, we have to have something to write about for future issues of
the newsletter, right? So you'll just have to wait ... but for now, let's
say that the foundations have been laid and things are moving ahead at full
