Are you planning to come to Dragon*Con? If not, why not? Do you know there is an entire skeptics track planned again this year, bigger and better than last year (and it pretty muchÂ kicked ass last year). This year, we have more space, more speakers and more Skepchicks coming. Â We also have a special event happening the day before Dragon*Con starts so make sure you plan ahead. Â The Atlanta Skeptics are planning a star gazing party, hosted by none other than Phil Plait and Pamela Gay. Â We’ll have drinks, dinner, and of course, some star gazing once the sun goes down.
I really hope you can join us. This event is in honor of our friend and fellow skeptic, Jeff Medkeff. Jeff was the astronomer who discovered and named an asteroid after Rebecca. We were all devastated when Jeff lost his battle with liver cancer last year and proceeds from this event will go to the American Cancer Society.
It will also be a rocking good time. In addition to Phil and Pamela, we have a bunch of skepchicks and skeptics who have already signed up to attend. Brian Thompson from Amateur Scientist, Richard Saunders and Rachel Dunlop from The Skeptic Zone, plus our own Rebecca Watson, ARealGirl and Carr2d2 will all be there.
Tickets are limited and will sell out. So head over to the Atlanta Skeptics site to buy tickets now! See you, and the stars, there!
