===Summary===

After The Changes, furry conventions find themselves facing tough logistical choices: How far can they go to welcome the therianthropes that many consider to be the cons' natural audience? As Furconium 1997 draws to a close, staff members and attendees look back at the compromises that were made to keep the event running smoothly.

==Author Comments==
Speaking from long experience, I can say that Furconium's logistical struggles aren't indicative of mismanagement -- even the best-run cons see staff members in a perpetual state of low-grade panic. Given the additional hurdles of The Changes, they turned in a truly heroic performance.

Yes, before you ask, its third year was referred to as "cubic furconium"; who could pass up that pun? ;-)
