TrekFest 2015: "Fistful of Datas" -- June 26-27, 2015! Check Out This Year's Schedule!

The Riverside Area Community Club has announced the full itinerary of next month's TrekFest XXXI, over in nearby Riverside, IA. TrekFest is an annual celebration of the official future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk. In past years, they have pulled in actors from the original Star Trek television series, but most years it's an excuse to have a lot of fun with a bit of a small town science fiction flavor.

I wrote back in April that TrekFest XXXI's theme is "A Fistful of Datas." It is scheduled this year for June 26-27, 2015.

I looked at the TrekFest website and noted that their schedule is now printed. Here are some of the highlights from this year's TrekFest:

Incidentally, I have included the design for the 2015 TrekFest t-shirt. I have been getting TrekFest t-shirts since 2011. I really enjoy this year's design and cannot wait to get my own shirt!
