Seeking Program Ideas


Hi folks, KaCSFFS is looking for ideas for programs for upcoming meetings.

Do you or someone you know have something of interest to SF&F fans that you'd like to present?  For example, are you an author who'd like to read some of your work for the group? (even if you've read for us before, I'll bet we haven't heard it all)  An artist who'd like to show us your art and talk about it?  Do you or someone you know work in a field that a bunch of Science Fiction and Fantasy fans would be interested in hearing about?  Have you been to a destination (A NASA facility, a game store, a museum, one or more of the moons of Saturn) that you could do a presentation on?  Designed or played any new SF or Fantasy games that you'd like to show us?

If so, please send your ideas to our Google group email, KaCSFFS@googlegroups.com

Currently we're doing our meetings via Zoom, but it will allow you to speak and show slides just like you would in real life.  (Of course, if you have some weird alien artifact or +3 magic object that we can't appreciate without touching it, or feeling its psychic aura, that may not work as well.  But try us anyway.)

Anyone who's reading this is invited to participate. Here's an opportunity for all those who have wanted to come to a LR meeting but have been unable to do so.

They say on the news that Netflix viewership is up quite a bit, with everyone staying home and having nothing else to do. But don't just watch; report! Let us know what you're watching, and whether or not you'd recommend it to others, and why. Of course it doesn't have to be Netflix; let us know what you're watching on any streaming service, or even network TV for that matter.-David S. (Fearless Leader)
