What has NASF3 been up to?
This past March we hosted our first convention, HELIOsphere 2017 in Tarrytown NY. Our featured guests included David Gerrold, Jacqueline Carey, Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Heidi Hooper. The convention was so successful that we are hosting our second con, HELIOsphere 2018, in March.
We’ve got exciting guests signed on to appear at our convention. Eric Flint and Charles E. Gannon who will be presenting the “1632 Mini-Con”, as well as Cecilia Tan, Mark Oshiro and Tom Kidd. HELIOsphere 2018 promises to be an “out of this world” event with many new additions and great programing, such as the return of our Blues Dance, a Harry Potter-themed social on Friday night and a Filk program. If you have any ideas about what you’d like to see at this and future HELIOsphere cons, we’d love to hear about them.
Members of our Board have been attending conventions throughout the region to promote HELIOsphere. Four of our Board, Mark, Catelynn, Liz and Gabby, as well as several of our members were at the recent SMOFcon (a convention for those of us who run Science Fiction conventions) in Boston earlier this month.
HELIOsphere 2018 and our organization’s other events in the New Year look like they’re going to be a lot of fun. Stay tuned to our Facebook pages for announcements and updates plus Game Night event notices.
