CELEBRATING the PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE of DOCTOR WHO Since 1986!
We are THE GUARDIANS OF GALLIFREY,
A Fan Club in The Orlando/Central Florida area,
Devoted to the long-lived BBC SF/Fantasy Series DOCTOR WHO.
We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization registered with the IRS. While not a charity, we have walked for the March of Dimes, held a yardsale to raise money for victims of the 2004 tsunami, and donate any money from autographed auction items to the Red Cross.
The Guardians of Gallifrey have a long history of supporting Doctor Who, including participating in television pledge drives in Orlando, Gainesville, Tampa, and West Palm Beach. (Remember when Doctor Who could only be found on PBS?) The Club has contributed to several other local fan groups to help with event costs, including Hurricane Who, the Sci-Fi Sea Cruise, and Time Lord Fest.
Each month the Guardians publish a newsletter called The Gallifrey Guardian. Available by email in color, it has pages of Doctor Who news, Club activities, fan fiction and fan art, convention information, photos from Doctor Who events, the occasional filksong, poem, or puzzle, and more. Contributors whose submissions appear in the newsletter will receive a free digital copy of that issue. Besides our newsletter, we have produced Yearbooks, a Cookbook, and a live-action video—The New Order.
We meet monthly, usual on Sundays at a local Science Fiction shop, and have a relaxed and informal get-together, with Doctor Who and related viewing, trivia contests, games, and chatting with fellow fans. Twice a year, for June’s Club Anniversary Party and the December Wholiday Party, we hold marathon get-togethers at a member’s home–whose garage has been redecorated as the classic TARDIS console room! Food, games, trivia, an auction, and endless viewing are topped off with a midnight movie in the sci-fi, fantasy, or superhero genre.
