Upcoming Big Events for Barfleet in 2016

If you’re interested in partying with Barfleet in 2016, there are plenty of opportunities this year…but there are a few that will be even more fun than our normal shindigs.

First up is Cleveland ConCoction, happening March 11-13. Cleveland ConCoction is an all fan-run convention that’s still relatively new, and marks the return of fan-run cons in Cleveland. Along with an amazing weekend of all the normal convention activities, ConCoction will also be host to the 30th Anniversary of Barfleet’s first ship, the UBS Casual. The anniversary will be celebrated on Saturday night with as big a party as we can fit. As is typical of our convention parties, the event will be open to all registered guests of the convention and is free to attend for everyone over 21 with a con badge and a government-issued photo ID. We are also being assisted in this Anniversary endeavor by Cleveland Whiskey, who will be on hand with amazing bourbon and “moral support.”

Our other really big event this year will be a mission to Las Vegas for the Star Trek 50th Anniversary celebration in August. While we will not be doing anything that is an official part of the convention, we do plan to host some private parties for friends and invited guests. If you’re at the convention, look for the Barfleet contingent to secure your invitation.

Those are the events – beyond and above all the convention parties and other activities we do throughout the year – that are our most anticipated of 2016. We’re also pretty excited with our newest sponsor, the aforementioned Cleveland Whiskey, and we are hoping for a long and mutually beneficial relationship. If bourbon is your thing, give theirs a try. They use a modern science-based finishing system that allows the use of woods that you just don’t normally find in the whiskey world.

Please join us for what we hope will be a most intense 2016!
