The Omaha Science Fiction Education Society Newsletter

Vol 1 - Number 1 - December, 2009

If you are on our mailing list, we are sending this out to you to keep you abreast of where we are with OSFest and other activities that are taking place throughout the Omaha area. If you know of anybody who would like to receive this newsletter, and is not currently on our e-mail list, send an e-mail to: and request to be put on the list. Conversely, if you are receiving this newsletter and do not wish to receive it, send an e-mail to the aforementioned address and request to be removed from our list.

OSFES had a panel at AnimeNebraskon - we presented a brief history of S/F conventions that have occurred in Omaha and the surrounding area. We reported on where we are today, with activities that are in the planning stages at OSFest and other activities that are being planned in Omaha and the surrounding area. We ended with a Q & A on what people would like to see at OSFest.

We are looking at upcoming cons and holding room parties at these cons- If you will be attending any cons within 500 or so miles of Omaha in the future, look for our room party. Or if you would like to sponsor a party for OSFest, contact us at: for how to go about it.

We will be having a concert at OSFest. Plans at this time are to hold this concert on Friday evening, July 23. It was also decided that we will have a dance on Saturday evening, July 24. We are currently looking at a number of entertainers, but nothing is definite yet.

We are in the early planning stages of an Anime Film Festival that we would like to hold sometime this winter. Right now we still need a venue and more ideas. Any suggestions are welcome.

Every Saturday “The Usual Suspects” invite you to attend a movie with them at the Great Escape Theater in Omaha. This will be the last “twilight” (i.e. cheap) showing around 5:00pm. Check the theaters listings for the actual time or sign up for our Yahoo e-mail group, to receive a reminder notice weekly. If you want you can also join them afterwards for supper at a nearby restaurant for discussion of the movie and other stuff.

If you know of any activities going on in the Omaha area and would like to have them put in this monthly newsletter, or anything relevant to s/f, fantasy, anime, costuming or cosplay, etc., send the info to
