Hey skeptical Illini! Good news! This weekend is the first ever Chambana Skeptics in the Pub! With the Chicago meet-ups and this new downstate group, soon the state of Illinois will be nothing but skeptics!
I was hoping to make it down for this meet up, but regretfully it’s not happening. Please drink for me in spirit (and have a few for the rest of the Skepchicks as well.)
I’ve got the details after the fold, but first I want to point out how much SkepGeek rocks for putting this together. Many of you have asked us why there are no meet-ups in your areas. The answer is: because you haven’t put one together yet! If you are not already going to meet-ups because they’re all too far from you, your homework assignment for this weekend is to make some calls and put one together!
If you have any questions, use the contact us link and we’ll be happy to help you out!
When: August 23, 20:00- whenever
Where: The Blind Pig — http://blindpigco.com/
Description: This is our inaugural “Skeptics at the Pub” event here
in Champaign-Urbana. It is sponsored by CU Freethinkers, but all are
welcome. I am also sending the invitation out to the U of I student
Atheists, Agnostics & Freethinkers group as well as several friends
The format is simple. We’ll start off with an ice-breaker, namely a
little trivia game about some skeptical topic. Then we’ll just let
conversation take us where it will. It ends whenever people want it
If you can RSVP, great, but it is not necessary. Mostly, it will
just help me decide if I have to move things to a larger venue. You
can contact me at adam [at] slagell [dot] name.
If all goes well, this will be a monthly event. Hope to see you there!
