What we're about

Welcome to the official Meetup group of ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha - a club for fans of Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

We organise meetings for members around the UK (and occasionally in other countries), produce a magazine four times a year, and offer a range of Guide-related merchandise available to members by post. (At least we do when we have a merchandise officer.)

Our membership is varied and diverse, encompassing the widest range of humanity (and, quite likely, inhumanity) imaginable. Our youngest ever member was not even born, and our oldest has pushed 70.

Besides the prestige of being a member of the best and greatest appreciation society the Galaxy has ever known, membership of ZZ9 will entitle you to partake in the democratic election of the committee, slouching and socialising with the hoopiest bunch of froods to be found this side of Betelgeuse!

ZZ9 is a social experience. Originally formed as an excuse to get together and re-appreciate the works of one Douglas Adams, it continues the grand tradition of bringing people together. With monthly social gatherings, weekend slouches, occasional parties and annual picnics (bring your Beeblebear and Towel), as well as mass attendance of Science Fiction conventions, ZZ9 is a way of life. It is life.
