Who Are The Hantsfurs?
Started in 2000 and still going strong, the Hantsfurs are a group of furries located largely within Hampshire, UK. If you're wondering what a furry is, then take a look at the WikiFur article to help explain. Ultimately however, furries are a very diverse group of people who have come together through their common interest in anthropomorphic animals (animals who exhibit human properties).
The HantsFurs community was formed to make it easy for Hampshire furs to meet up with other furs in the area, however furs are welcome from anywhere to the HantsFur meets.
More information can be found on the HantsFurs on their Wikifur article.
The HantsFurs meet up in locations within Hampshire (with some exceptions) periodically to socialise and put a face to the names behind the online personas. Meet activities generally depend on their location and can involve fursuiting, bowling, arcade gaming and socialising in pubs, bars and parks.
There are some semi regular meets; the Southampton fortnightly meet, the Basingstoke bowling meets and the annual Bournemouth meet. However, other random events occur and are announced on the forums or mailing list.
Meets are organised via the UKFur Forum by whoever wants to host a meet by naming a time and place.
