Welcome to Genesis Sci-fi Club
The Basingstoke science fiction club
This web site is in the process of being revamped completely. Yes, we know it looks dated. This will be remedied soon-ish (very heavy on the -ish; the webmaster is realllly lazy). Until then, you can consider what you see here as a sort of archive. Go ahead and click the links on the side bar, but keep in mind that much of the non-fictional information is woefully out of date. As the site gets updated, a subset of that information will be copied over.
The next meetings are listed below. For now, they're all planned to be held online using the Zoom platform. Connection information will be posted here, and on social media (hopefully) no later than an hour before the meeting starts.
The next scheduled meetings are as follows:
The Dice Tower Basingstoke Grand Opening: Wednesday, 19th January, 2022 at 18:00 GMT (10:00 PST / 13:00 EST)
The Dice Tower is a gaming coffee house that is opening at the old Red Lion Café. We want to show our solidarity and establish links, because this looks like a really good place for us to meet up in person when the plague has departed.
Their address is:
The Dice Tower / Red Lion Café 24 London St Basingstoke RG21 7NY
Note that the main entrance appears to be in the back of the Red Lion, directly across from The Lime Leaf restaurant. It is the grand opening, after all, and we're not 100% certain that'll be the main entrance. It could potentially be through the Red Lion Hotel, itself. Either way, don't forget your mask!
Book Club Meeting: Saturday, 29th January, 2022 at 14:00 GMT (06:00 PST / 09:00 EST)

In the meantime, we all hope everybody is doing as well as they can be, and that they're all coping with whatever forms of isolation they may be forced to endure. When things have calmed down again, and various venues have re-opened, regular in-person meetings will resume. Until then, everybody stay safe!
