The Amazing Meeting (Las Vegas)

Skeptics -

Every year many Phoenix-area skeptics make the pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the meeting of the skeptical tribes: The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM). As always the lineup of skeptic and science celebrities is mind-boggling and they're sure to drop wisdom bombs all over the ballroom. There are also some great special events. However, in this organizer's humble opinion, the real fun happens in the hallways, restaurants, and bars where hundreds of skeptics from around the world mix and mingle. You may even get to hang out with your favorite skeptic celebrity (be cool)!

*** SKEPTIC CARAVAN *** Some of us are driving, so if you'd like a ride or would be willing to drive, send a message through Meetup or email [masked] to join the caravan.

For all the TAM info and to register, see http://www.amazingmeeting.com/

To book a room at the South Point, see http://www.southpointcasino.com/

I hope to see many familiar AZ faces at TAM this year. Let's represent!

- Matt

      I won't be making it. I just got home from the hospital a few minutes ago. I'm so bummed! That just means you need to party extra hard for me!

    So Matt, what's the departure plan for Thursday ??

    July 6, 2013

  • Anne M.

    Deb Neil & I are driving and could take 1 - 2 more if anyone needs a ride.

    June 25, 2013

    • Matt L.

      Thanks for the offer Anne, but it looks like everyone who wants a ride already has one. See you in Vegas!

      July 2, 2013

    • Matt L.

      Unless you're leaving Friday by chance...

      July 2, 2013

  • Jay

    I am driving. Leaving Thursday mid morning. Happy to offer a ride to a PASS member. However not sure though when I'll be returning to PHX. Would love to join in on PASS gatherings. What's the best way to connect.

  • Nichelle C.

    I'm looking forward to meeting some people. It's hard for me to get to the local meet ups, so maybe my first introduction to local skeptics will be in Vegas.

    June 28, 2013

  • John M.

    We'll be there! (Right after Streak N Shake! ) :-D

    June 28, 2013

  • John M.

    Great idea. Seems like it ought to be in a Pub! (Tho, for my family, the Steak N Shake restaurant is one of the biggest thrills of the South Point. We're from the town where SnS was invented.

    • Amanda B.

      Well there is a place called Del Mar Lounge in the hotel - that everyone is at when there isn't conference stuff going on - the whole event is one big skeptics in the pub at Del Mar. I would imagine we could all easily find each other there!

      1 · June 27, 2013

    • Matt L.

      Indeed! Meet at the Del Mar Thursday night.

      June 28, 2013

  • John M.

    We are going Thursday afternoon.

    June 27, 2013

  • John M.

    Madeline should RSVP on her own. Bringing son, too. Would have room for 1 or 2 others if they need a ride there & back.

    June 24, 2013
