The Future of Chessiecon

You are invited to the next Thanksgiving Science Fiction Society meeting on August 18. The Thanksgiving Science Fiction Society intends to continue its mission. Your involvement is essential in determining the nature of future Chessiecons and other activities. See the meeting announcement for details.

Chessiecon 2024 Status

At the December 17, 2023, meeting it was decided there was not enough money in the TSFS treasury or membership to consider holding an in-person Chessiecon in 2024.

We continue to consider other events or activities that TSFS can sponsor. The current limitation, besides the treasury, are people willing to support the activities. If you want to see Chessiecon return in the future, you are encouraged to attend future TSFS meetings or email info to volunteer.
