Megaplex 2018 anyone?

Pyruus V.8: Now With More Glowy Bits
I'm planning on going to Megaplex this year. There's just one problem... I don't know anyone at all down in Florida, and I've been told that furry conventions are always better with friends. Also, this will be my first furry convention, so I'm really nervous I won't have a good time. Who else is going, and do you have any tips for NOT being shy and socially anxious?

Im going to megaplex also. And i was at the picnic. It will be my first year but im going with a friend thats gone for the past 4 years.
 
Hi! I'm going to be there probably Friday and Saturday and I'll only be with one other person so I might want to make some more friends too ^^
I don't have any tips for getting over social anxiety as I don't get anxious myself, but the friend I'll be with is anxious too and it'll be her first time at a convention as well!
 
I'll try to make it there... if I get a carpool. I am looking forward to this con as I have a fellow macro fursuiter I have been trying to meet since last year but things kept, well falling apart.

Yes, I will be there! Although, I've never been to a convention before so I just assume I get my badge at the door?
I'm also really interested in making new friends there, since where I live doesn't exactly have a great big population
and I'm not in school anymore u___u

You would be surprised how many furs are out there. I mean i never went to a convention but i made a fur friend who introduced me to the ocala furs now i got lots of fur friends.

That's how it kinda was with finding friends into general nerd stuff when I lived in the Tampa bay area. I live in Plant City now and there's hardly anyone as far as I've met so far who are into furries.

I think tampa is still relatively close still and they have a good sized fur group. Lakeland might have a fur group too, but im not sure. Either way im sure youll make lots of friend's at megaplex.

I'll be going this year as i've missed the passed 2 sadly. As for the social anxiety, I usually hit up the game room. You can meet tons of people there and have a good time. I've met lots of furs in con game rooms and even came close to winning some of the tournaments. It's the perfect ice breaker as it gives ya something easy to talk about.
