Yesterday, I was minding my own beeswax and suddenly Gmail was all, “Skepchicks! You got mail, yo!”
And what sweet mail it was! Here were the contents, in their entirety:

Chicagoâ€™s Galway Arms site of the first Skepchicamp
Skepchicamp, Chicagoâ€™s first skepticamp, will be held at the Galway
Arms on Saturday, March 6. Â It will be held in the upstairs room of
the Galway Arms, located at 2442 N. Clark ST. Â Skepchicamp will run
from 12:30 PM to about 10 p.m, and includes a dinner buffet.
Over twenty area speakers will give skeptical presentations on
various subjects, including critical thinking, cults, science-based
medicine, and diversity within the skeptical movement. Â Notable local
speakers include Hemant Mehta, creator The Friendly Atheist blog
http://friendlyatheist.com , and Elyse Anders, a blogger with
Skepchick, Â http://skepchick.org.
Wow! Those are some big name skeptics! Probably two of the biggest names in Chicago (besides like Julia Sweeney and Roger Ebert)! Speaking at Skepchicamp!
Know who else is coming? Jen, Surly Amy, Carr2D2 and even Bug Girl!
You know how hardcore Skepchick this Skepchicamp is? Our corporate sponsor is SurlyRamics! That’s kickin’ it real as it gets, yo! If you’re not involved in this shizzle, you need to be!
