Klingon Fans to Meet Locally Face-to-Face on July 5th Worldwide
for the First International Klingon Meetup Day

Montreal, Canada (June 7, 2003) - In celebration of it's website's 7th anniversary on the Net, the Klingon Imperial Diplomatic Corps today announced it has established a partnership with Meetup Inc. to help generate monthly face-to-face Klingon fan gatherings in hundreds of cities and towns around the world. Through http://klingon.meetup.com Klingon fans can now easily self-organize and meet face-to-face in local venues around the planet.

"Through the years we've continued to hear from Klingon fans who've had great difficulty in tracking down other local fans in their area. This service will be a new and exciting way for those Klingon fans to meet and connect in their own communities." says Capucine Plourde, founder and director of the Klingon Imperial Diplomatic Corps.

"This is also ground-breaking in that it is a non-partisan Klingon gathering, not biased towards any one particular Klingon club, group or organization, but rather can bring together anyone who has an interest in Klingon culture, society or language. The KIDC has actively encouraged participation in our many Klingon online groups, forums and mailing lists; but now Klingon fans will have a great opportunity to connect face-to-face on a monthly basis."

The first "International Klingon Meetup Day" is Saturday, July 5th at 2 p.m. local time around the globe, and will continue on the first Saturday of each month thereafter. To join the action, visit http://klingon.meetup.com
