Dedicaton of the Festival

This year's Out-of-this-World Festival will be dedicated to three individuals who have recently gone on to the Final Frontier.

The first is Nick Winks...known for his contributions to local conventions like Marcon, Context and DeConpression.  He was a great friend and supporter of local fandom.

The second is Steve Glenn who was a true die-hard Star Trek fan. He and his wife were well known by the entire staff at Star Base and had been customers as long as anyone can remember. 

The third of course is Leonard Nimoy...our beloved Mr. Spock, one of the most popular characters in Star Trek history...

There will be a memorial display to remember and honor these 3 individuals, as well as other friends who have passed on.
