GaFilk. We gather the first weekend following the holidays for a relax-a-con to enjoy good company and good music. Filk, a misnomer in a program some fifty years ago, has become its own genre focusing on, but not limited to, parody, science fiction and fantasy.

This was the first time I could take off work both the Friday before and the Sunday after the filking weekend in order to not rush home, which created the opportunity to participate in the dead dog party. This year a number of professional bands hung around, allowing the synergy to become absolutely remarkable.
Dragons are not unknown, either, as old friends come together...
New friends are made.
|Auctioneer and performer,|
As a way to raise money for interfilk, which is how we bring performers from all over the world to filk, we have an auction which gets...interesting.
