Date Change * NEBRASKON'S: BBQ has changed its date!

This just in: the folks planning the First NebrasKon BBQ, Cosplay, and Frisbee Event have changed the date. Since May 24th this year is the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, and so as not to interfere with people’s family plans, they have moved this event back a week. It is now scheduled for Sunday May 31st. Everything else stays the same, including the rainout date of June 7th. This is great news for a lot of the OSFest 2 staff, as we will be in Kansas City this weekend for the annual SF/F convention there: ConQuest.

For more information about the BBQ, please scroll down to my earlier blog. It is still OSFES’ intention to promote fannish activities in whatever their format is. If your group has an activity you would like us to point out to people, please point it out to us.

OSFest 2 scheduling notes:

There will be two special activities of interest to local groups happening at OSFest this year. The first is a Local Anime Group Roundtable, with the other being an Area Gaming Roundtable. Both of these one hour panels are a time available for local groups to get together and meet each other, as well as promote their activities to people that have never heard about them before. OSFES will supply a moderator for each discussion but otherwise keep this event unformatted. There are lots of groups in the Metro area doing things and the more people know about what is happening, the more they can get involved. If you would like to participate in these discussions, just droop me a line and I will get you on the schedule. Either Anime Roundtable or Gaming Roundtable.

There is still room in both the Star Wars minis Hoth Battle on Friday evening and in the Writer’s Workshop on Sunday morning. Sign up today.
