Saturday Events


  •   The Clap and Catch Game
    Location: Cahill Park
    Time: 1:00pm
    Prize: TBA

    A simple and effective park game for 16 attendees. Standing in a circle around one of our trusty volunteers, a ball will be randomly thrown to a competitor. Said competitor must clap their hands and attempt to catch the ball. If you fail, fear not! You still have a chance, although a second failure will put you out of the game. Last one standing wins the game.

    (In the interest of fairness, partial fursuiters get three chances and full fursuiters get four, while non suiters may only use one hand to attempt to catch the ball on their second attempt)

    Don’t worry, the rules will be explained before the game!

  •   The FurJAM Three Legged Race
    Location: Cahill Park
    Time: 1:00pm
    Prize: TBA

    8 teams for two races consisting of either one full fursuiter and one non suiter, or two partial fursuiters. Line up for an amazing race to see who is the fastest (and most coordinated) team. Will you prevail, or will you fall?

    Location: Cahill Park
    Time: 3:00pm
