Monthly Round Table and New Member Welcome

  • July 12, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

On the second Saturday of each month, we gather and engage in full group discussion in the comfort of a private room. This is a structured meeting with some ground rules for group discussion. The motivation is to connect with more of each other, which is difficult to accomplish if we're fractured into several small conversations.

New members: You'll hear a brief overview of the meetup and then have an opportunity to introduce yourself and get to know other active members, so please join us and share your thoughts and experiences.

Meeting outline:

WELCOME BRIEFING
Meeting purpose, agenda and ground rules. LV Atheists Meetup overview for newcomers.


INTROS/OPENING RANTS
Share with us a little bit about yourself and what brings you to the group. Or sound off-- what do you have to say to an audience of atheists?


DISCUSSION TOPIC OF THE MONTH
"Most atheists I have encountered are gloomy blighters with a depressing and nihilistic message that there is no purpose to life so where's the point of anything?" - Mary Kenny, theguardian.com, 10/2008.  Is she right? Is there a point to anything? Are you a gloomy blighter?

 

CLOSE
Final thoughts, meetup announcements/reminders, send-off.

At the conclusion of the meeting, members are encouraged to migrate to the pub area for continued discussions and drinks.

      Yes...if you go the pre-meet up at the Silverado Lounge, we can meet. If not, I don't know how we'll find each other in the crowd. Are you going to the Silverado? We should be there by 10.

    I've been in a car with 2 kids, 2 dogs, and my mom for 2 days- and we've only made it 500 miles. Still have 881 miles to go. I can be as gloomy as you like.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
