July Trout + Satellite 2

July's Trout is tomorrow, Thursday 9th, as usual in the back area of the Cask & Still, Hope St. Satellite 2 is only a couple of weeks away now, so this is your last chance to get membership at pre-con rates.

Satellite 2 is going to be a fun-packed weekend, with serious items on stuff like the Apollo guidance computer, panels on the Moon in SF and on Iain M. Banks's work, quizzes, silly games (I believe the ever-popular Finding Uranus is returning!), a disco on the Saturday evening, and of course a dealers' room/art show.

If you haven't joined up yet, why not?

If you have... have you thought about volunteering to help? The con is run by its members, and everyone can contribute. A little light gophering is a good way to meet people and can make the con a lot more fun, especially if it's your first time.

Trout in June: British Fantasy Society Open Night

June's Trout will be next Thursday, 11th June, as usual in the Cask and Still, Hope Street.

Not as usual, we'll be having a joint meeting with the British Fantasy Society (which organises the yearly Fantasycon). There will be free snacks from about 9pm, and books available at half price (£3.99). The thread on the BFS's forum is here.

Don't forget memberships are still available for Satellite 2 — see one of the Committee if you haven't already joined, it's going to be lots of fun.

May's Trout

The Trout meeting for May will be on Thursday 14th May, as usual in The Cask & Still, Hope Street, from 7pm. (There are usually some Trouts there earlier than that.) There's something else going on in the pub that night, but we will have our normal area at the rear of the pub.
