A club at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. There appear to have been several instantiations:

A club existed around 1970 which published Uranian. John Kessel and Steve Carper were members.

It was re-founded around 1978 and died in 1983 the year after key club members graduated. It ran URCON from 1979 to 1982 and was one of two sponsors of Rochester Fantasy Fair 2 in 1981.

It had a brief revival in 1990–91 and ran Imagine '90 as well as the New York State premiere of Mike Jittlov's full-length film, The Wizard of Speed and Time.

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, when and by whom it was founded, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, clubzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the club existed. This is probably not going to represent the club's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
