Auckland Sci-Fi Meet-Up Group
Auckland Scifi is a free friendly social group for fans of anything sci-fi, fantasy, super hero or zombie related. We run regular events where you can hang out and argue with other fans about the kind of nerdy stuff that other people just don't understand.
We meet every 2 weeks in the CBD for our SciFriday social night where new members can find out what we’re all about. We also go to the movies, get-together to watch our favourite new and classic TV shows; we run a book club, quiz nights and lots more!
Click here to join up (it’s free!) and to find out what events we have coming up: http://www.meetup.com/aucklandscifi/. (Sorry, over 18s only)
