Don’t say you haven’t been warned. We’ve been talking about it for nearly a year now and now we find Dragon*Con almost upon us. For those of you living under a rock, Dragon*Con is one of the largest fantasy and sci-fi conventions in the country. It’s held in my own hometown of Atlanta, Georgia and this year, as if it could be made more awesome, it features an entire track dedicated to Skepticism. Randi! Phil Plait! PZ Myers! Michael Shermer! Lori Lipman Brown! Stephen Novella! Michael Stackpole! (ETA: Sorry, I thought PZ was on the list but must have gotten confused! Fixed now!) The list goes on and on! Since there will be skeptics and Skepchicks around, of course, there are lots of opportunities to come by and say hello. Here’s the rundown of events the next couple of weeks:
Skepchicks in Florida – THIS SATURDAY, August 23, Carr2d2 and I will be hosting Skepchicks in the Pub in Destin, Florida – details of where and when will be posted here as soon as we have them.
Pre-Dragon*Con Skepchicks in the Pub – Thursday, August 28 – Carr2d2, A and I will be there, amongst the rest of the gang of Atlanta and visiting Skeptics who may be coming in earlier. Facebook has the details here. At least one robot will be present!
ETA: I forgot there is another Atlanta Skeptics event coming up the same weekend we’re in Destin. So if you’re unfortunate enough not be in Florida, go say hello to the folks at Secular Gwinnett on Saturday, August 23rd, 7 pm at Summit’s Wayside Tavern in Snellville, GA.
