    Types of Events


    Monthly meetings
    These usually occur on the afternoon of the third Saturday of the month, from 15h00 onwards and may take the form of presentations, regular speakers, bring and braai's (barbecues), an outing to the Planetarium and movie screening... R10 for members, R20 for non-members.

    Film Club evenings
    Usually on the second Friday evening of the month, at Franz and Simone's house. Here we watch the movie for the evening.

    Mini-conventions
    These include a midyear convention for the more serious fan - consisting of a day of talks, discussions, debates, quizzes and movie screenings - as well as speciality small conventions, such as a Star Trek minicon held in the first half of the year.
