Coffee with the Hudson Valley Skeptics Monthly Meeting

Hi everyone! We are going to make this a permanent monthly meeting. Hope plenty of folks can make it. For those who might be able to make an evening meeting more easily, we'll be scheduling a weeknight Meetup in the very near future for sometime around mid-November, in hopes of perhaps making that a monthly occurrence as well. The idea is that those whose schedule won't allow for a Saturday morning might be able to make a Tuesday night, for example. It will either also be at Barnes And Noble, or at some other place yet to be determined. If anyone has ideas for the nighttime meeting, let me know.


Thanks!

Dan

    Yesterday, I tried to log on to Branch, but the site was insisting that I log on via twitter. Is there another way to log on to Branch?

      Frank, please use email to comment on my talks, [masked]. Branch didn't work well. l look forward to hearing from you, whatever your opinions.

      Although the entire thing is beyond good, I am so glad to see this up because the best part, I think, is the bit he does at the end right after saying "... and fairies on their titties..." :-)

      Delightful to me, of course, to see an entertainment format used to sugar-coat skepticism. Wonderful.

    I enjoyed Saturday's meeting very much. I found the discussion the most stimulating I have had in years. I finally felt I was among people with whom I could discuss freely regardless of disagreements. I hope the next meeting is equally lively.

    We are in the cafe area.

    We'll keep it as is. See everyone who can make it there! We'll start in the Starbucks area until I can figure out about this large table.

    Hey all, considering the conditions I wondered if it might be easier for everyone if we postpone for a week. Next Saturday instead. What does everyone think? I know it might be tough for some of the farther out folks to make it.

    • Dan L.

      I won't change it unless I can confirm everyone saw. So it'll probably stay as today.

      That's fine if you keep it today, but I'll pass. Roads still covered here -- sun not doing its job yet and my drive is significantly long enough.

    Woke up this morning to frozen pipes, so I'll be stuck home dealing with this. Hope to see everyone next time.

    If we're not in the coffee shop area, we're at the big table upstairs. If I can't get anyone to reserve it for us I'll just ask for it tomorrow morning, unless someone can clarify it for me. Thanks again.

    Anyone know who I should ask for to reserve that table upstairs at B&N? I called and the woman on the phone had no idea what I was talking about. Thanks!

    January 3, 2014

  • Dan L.

    Yeah, I plan to reserve the big table. I'm going to call there in the next couple days. I believe someone at the last meeting said he knows the manager so we should be good to get it. Will update that status before Saturday so everyone knows to meet there instead of in the Starbucks area.

  • Frank E.

    I do believe that table has to be reserved.

    Dan-- I remember something about a big upstairs table at B&N -- I don't know if that has to be reserved in advance?

      I was glad to see this post. The few times I've met in the "coffee lounge" have been a bit unsatisfactory and my hearing was a tad better back then.

      December 31, 2013

  • Frank E.

    I'll be there with bells on Sat.

    Or a more intense four and a half hours with Dan Carlin, I'm almost an hour into it and am impressed as usual.

    Assuming my wife doesn't pull another incidental little job for me again in January....
