ODTUG is thrilled to announce that Scott Dikkers, the founder of The Onion, will be the keynote speaker at Kscope17. He will share his extraordinary and hilarious story of how he and some friends dropped out of college and started a fake newspaper.

 On Wednesday, June 28, ODTUG Kscope attendees can celebrate in style at the historic Sunset Station in San Antonio, Texas. The Southern Pacific Depot (Sunset Station) at Paul Square was one of the main stopping points along the famous Sunset Limited Route to California. Built in 1902, the facility has a long and storied history.

ODTUGers will gather at Sunset Station for the ODTUG Kscope17 Special Event. The entire night is about saying, “Happy 20th Birthday, ODTUG!” We will celebrate, in the finest birthday-party style, the best of ODTUG Kscope events of the past and the fun and excitement of this year’s ODTUG Kscope17!

Remember Miami Beach at ODTUG Kscope15? We are bringing back the Beach Party with the hottest music and coolest drinks in The Plaza. No birthday party is complete without magic! Join us in The Arcadian for our Masquerade Ball complete with masks, magic, and mouthwatering morsels.

Did you know that the gift for the 20th is platinum? Come to The Depot for James Bond Casino and Cocktails, a Platinum Casino Party remembering ODTUG Kscope11 in Long Beach, California, aboard the Queen Mary.

And last but not least, we are going “back to the future” with an 80s-Style Arcade in La Dahlia: foosball, video games, giant Jenga, and more.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime party! ODTUG will never be 20 again! Come revel in the best of yesterday and celebrate the present and future. All we need is you! Register today for ODTUG Kscope17.

It's the most wonderful Kscope next year

With abstract records broken and sessions now open

Marshmallows for toasting

And Community events for you to go

And tales of the glories of

Kscopes long, long ago.
