A quick signal boost

3 07 2017

I’ve been asked to help publicise an upcoming fan-oriented SF convention, Medtrek 6, which is happening in Penrith (which would be the Australian Penrith, rather than any of the other Penriths) at the end of this month. Details as follows:

Medtrek 6 will be held over the weekend of 28-30 July at Nepean Shores, 6-22 Tench St, Penrith (NSW) to celebrate 50 years since the first episode of Star Trek aired on Australian TV.

If you went to the first Medtrek about 35 years ago, or any of the Medtreks since then, you’ll know Medtreks are fun, relaxed fan-run SF conventions for fans of Star Trek, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Serenity, Battlestar Galactica etc to meet with like-minded people. It offers talks, panels, a writing contest and dealers tables.

Full Membership  for the weekend is $160 for the full weekend. This price includes morning and afternoon teas and lunches on both days as well as a sumptuous Banquet on Saturday night. If you just want to go for one day, the price is $60 per day (this includes morning and afternoon tea and lunch) or $100 for Saturday if you want morning/afternoon teas, lunch and the banquet on Saturday night. Contact Susan Batho by e-mailing Medtrek6@hotmail.com for full details.

(Incidentally, if you’re curious as to how a convention gets the name ‘Medtrek’, it’s because the first few such conventions, back in the eighties, were held at the Medlow Baths, up in the Blue Mountains. The convention has since moved to different venues, but the name has stuck.)
