March HOC Meeting: Cosmos

A third of a century ago Carl Sagan's series "Cosmos" enchanted the country, becoming the most popular public TV series of all time.  Now in 2014 Neil deGrasse Tyson will try to repeat the success with a series of the same name, on the same topic, and starting tonight, March 9th!

For the occasion the HOC will be showing the inaugural episode on the big screen, starting at 8:00 PM.  We will hold our usual potluck at 6:00, and linger with the food until maybe 7:15 or so.  Then we will remove the food and the tables and bring out more chairs for the dozens more people we expect to watch the program with us.  Plan to stay until 9:00 when the show ends.


Venue Instructions: Parking is available on the side of the building, on the street, in the lot across the alley, and in the lot across 31st street. Please do not park directly behind the building, under the stairway to the upstairs apartments.

Potluck dinner at 6 pm. Program at 7 pm. Potluck instructions are based upon the first letter of the last name. Please do not bring drinks for the potluck. Drinks will be available as concessions, so bring a few extra dollars for some soda or coffee.

    Jan, most meetings at the Hub are full of conversation. This one, for example, began at 6:00 with an HOC potluck, and the presentation did not begin until 7:30. So, keep an eye on both the Secular Hub Meetup site and the HOC Meetup site, as well as others, and you'll have much better luck next time striking up a conversation.

    I would like to have stayed longer but have to be at work early. One suggestion I would like to make is to see if people can introduce themselves if this is a community. I had to tap someone in front of me to start a conversation otherwise I would have not spoken to anyone. I love the idea of the secular group but if people especially newcomers like me could have a chance to introduce themselves beforehand this may help to build a sense of community.
