I apologize for the mass emails but there are several cool events coming up that I wanted to share!
September 1, 2011Atlanta Skeptics Star Party
I've been plugging this a lot so I won't go into too much detail but just wanted to let you know that tickets are selling really fast. We've also confirmed the fabulous George Hrab, in addition to Phil Plait, Pamela Gay and Nicole Gugliucci. Also, Nicole has asked me to acquire liquid nitrogen. Do with that information what you will; all I know? This party is going to kick ass :)
September 1-5, 2011Dragon*Con/Skeptrack
is upon us! Once again, Derek Colanduno and Robynn "Swoopy" McCarthy are busting their butts to put together an amazing program for us. This year's schedule
is out and promises to be absolutely fantastic! Hopefully we'll see you there!

Walk in the Dragon*Con parade with Margaret Downey's Anti-Superstition group! Margaret Downey, Founder and President of the Freethought Society, will be costuming at the Dragon*Con parade and needs volunteers! She's specifically looking for women and will provide costumes, sizes 6-12.
The theme of the group will be the Friggatriskaidekaphobia Treatment Center. More info here. If you are interested, contact Margaret directly for details! It should be a lot of fun. Email: [address removed]
