Finncon ry established
Originally uploaded by FransBadger.

It has been said that Finland is the promised land of associations — there are thousands and thousands of non-profits here, established by individuals on enormous range of serious or more light-hearted subjects. Today yet another association was created, but one could claim that this one has been in actual demand for some time. FinnCon is the major Finnish — and international — science fiction event that has been regularly organised since 1986. This is thus a historical image: the representatives from local science fiction associations signing the founding documents for the national umbrella association, Finncon ry, which will run this line of events from now on. Follow the news in http://www.finncon.org — this is a really great showcase of fandom activities, useful for academics and general audience alike. (Posted from Kaupinojan Sauna.)
