Game Day, Sunday, April 17, 1 p.m., St. Paul

  • April 17, 2011 · 1:00 PM
  • Roseville Public Library

 

It has been a couple of years since we have held this event, and it was always a lot of fun. Test your knowledge of atheist history in Atheist Jeopardy, or enter the second Fern Wodtke Memorial Chinese Checker Tournament, in honor of our undefeated champion. Or sit down at a board in a simultaneous exhibition by chess master George Kane. Or bring your own favorite card or board game, and teach others to play. Game Day is a fun opportunity for families and people of all ages.

There will be prizes galore. If you win a game, you will likely win something.

There will be a business meeting at 1:15. Following the meeting, socialize and enjoy the games until the cleanup.

That evening, our good friends at the Humanists of Minnesota will be holding their banquet, headlined by Brian Keith Dalton, best known as “Mr. Deity.” We want to encourage attendance at their banquet, and so will forego our customary practice of going out to eat after the meeting.

1:00-1:15 p.m. - Social Time
1:15-1:45 p.m. - Business Meeting
1:45-2:00 p.m. - Social Time
2:00-3:30 p.m. - Atheist Jeopardy and Fren Wodke Chinese Checker Tournament

    Having the other games not only going at the same time but no distance between them meant it was really difficult to hear anything in the Jeopardy game, which is what I came for, hoping to learn a bit.

    I recommend the Westminster Town Hall Forum presentation by philosopher, Dr. Marcus Borg (emeritus, OSU) on religious language which will be broadcast on 91.1 FM on (Good) Friday, 4/22. His thesis is that the original language of the bible is about real world morality emphasizing social justice, rather than an exclusive (the saved and literalists) ?heaven and hell? morality which emphasizes the afterlife. His interpretation provides some grounds for dialogue between believers and non-believers.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
