Greetings!

Some of the members of SacFAN interested in science, skepticism, and critical thinking may be interested in this conference.

Tickets are now available for the 2011 SkeptiCal Conference! It will be held at the Berkeley Doubletree on May 29, 2011. Last year's conference sold out past capacity, so please buy your tickets as soon as possible to ensure a seat!

You can register at our website here: skepticalcon.org.

Speakers this year will include Dr. Eugenie Scott of the NCSE, Dr. Bob Carroll, creator of the Skeptic's Dictionary, Skeptologists Yau-Man Chan and Mark Edward, UC Santa Cruz Professor of Psychology Dr. Anthony Pratkanis, Pacific Institute President Dr. Peter Gleick, Creator of the Darwin Awards Wendy Northcutt, and more!

This year we are offering two great options for our attendees: a t-shirt and an on-site lunch at the Doubletree. If you don't choose the on-site lunch, there are many great restaurants nearby.
