Turku Christmas Party, Forum, Finncon

The Turku sf society will organize a Christmas party on Thursday this week (December 10). The place is the TYY sauna (at Yo-talo), the party starts at six. There will be some food, drink, programming (quiz, ruffle, etc.), and a sauna. There was information about this on the TSFS web site, but it has been removed for some reason (Update: it’s back now). The info is available on their Google calendar however so you can find the details there.

The Terrakoti societies have opened a joint forum where you can discuss things about the societies (no RSS feeds that I could find, though, so following it would require remembering to visit the forum at least for now). It also has a subforum related to Finncon 2011 matters (including a discussion about potential GoHs—requires registering though).

Turku This Week

The last pub meeting of the year is this Thursday, Kultainen Hirvi at 6. Everybody who wishes to talk sf over a beer (or a glass of wine, or juice) is welcome!

Things to talk about: where to have the pub meetings next year; also agreeing on the next sfnal lunch meeting. Plus a new issue of my fanzine, free for all who show up.

There’s now a Facebook group for all who wish to be informed of these informal sf gatherings in the Turku area (mafia meetings, lunches, etc.). Join the “Turun mafia” group if you’re interested!

On Friday, the Turku University sf club will arrange a “Little Christmas” party at Terrakoti. Starts at 5, non-alcoholic punch is on the house. Bring your own drinks, food, and holiday cheer.
