TSFS 30 Years

The Turku Science Fiction Society is 30 years this January. The oldest sf society in Finland celebrates the event on January 28 at the Turun Upseerikerho restaurant with a dinner. Everyone is invited to the occasion.

Here is the information, since I could find no mention of the event on the TSFS web page (nor in their fanzine Spin—an oversight that is certain to cost them several attendees, especially from the older crowd who doesn’t hang around on their e-mail list):
  • January 28, at 17.00
  • Place: Turun Upseerikerho, Kaivokatu 12
  • A formal (or semi-formal) outfit, or some kind of an sf costume suitable for the occasion
  • Price is 40 euros, including a three-course dinner, drinks during the meal, a starting drink, plus coffee and cake
You can also skip the dinner and arrive during the coffee for the rest of the evening. The price in that case is 5 euros.

There are three menu options to choose from (inquire from the organizers). The deadline for signing up for the dinner is already January 9, but I heard it’s possible to sign up a bit later also. Pre-registration is required also for only attending the after-dinner part of the festivities.

You can sign up or inquire more about the menu and payment details by sending an e-mail to the TSFS board.
