Upcoming Minn-StF Events

If you're new to Minn-StF, you should know that our "meetings" are actually parties. Meeting start times are listed as "4pm", although they nominally start at 2pm, but almost nobody shows up until 4pm. Check Einblatt! for more details. The business meeting (5 minutes of announcements) will typically be between 5-6pm. We encourage people to bring snacks or drinks to share at the meetings, but that's not required and hosts will provide some food and drink. You can find out more about what happens at our meetings parties.

The current issue of Einblatt! always has a list of events for the current month (even if we fall behind on updating this website). It also includes other events possibly of interest to Minn-StF members. The events from Einblatt! are also posted to a Google Calendar. Short notice events are sometimes posted to the natter email list, the mnstf Livejournal community, or to the Facebook group.


Minn-Stf puts on this annual gathering of fans centered on our love of science fiction, good parties and general silliness every Easter. You can learn more about the convention at its web page.
