Pub Meeting, Roadside Picnic this week

This Thursday is the first of the month, and that means the Turku pub meeting. For the summer, we decided to move the meetings outside, so the meeting will be at the Brewery Restaurant Koulu at six (outside if the weather permits). The book circle meets 6:30, this month’s book is Pimeyden reunalla (a new pulp anthology). There will also be a new issue of the Turu Mafia Zine—free for everyone who shows up.

On Saturday, Spektre organizes the traditional relaxacon Roadside Picnic in Tampere Viikinsaari. The first ferry from Laukontori leaves at noon; I’ll be taking the 10 AM train to Tampere which probably means making the 1 PM ferry. Bring your own picnic; there’s a fireplace for barbecuing on the island.

The Tampere trip continues on Sunday with a smof brunch at Café Siilinkari, probably starting around 10 AM. Come discuss things like conventions, fan funds, creating a fandom portal, and everything eles!
