International Colonial Conference
2010 will mark the 4th year of the International Colonial Conference for fans of Battlestar Galactica.
The Stormbringer is one of the larger organizations in local fandom with approximately 250 members, about 80 of which turn out for Starfest. Members will be flying in from California, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Missouri because the Stormbringer is a correspondence organization that has chosen STARFEST for its once a year face-to-face gathering.
This year is shaping up to be even larger as they are looking at members coming from the UK and Australia.
The Stormbringer will be hosting a Battlestar Galactica programming track at StarFest. Everyone should find time over the weekend to stop by and say hi. You’ll find the BSG room on the second floor looking over the Atrium, in the room where the Model Make n Take used to be.
