“ I work evening shift so I can't attend many of the meet ups. I wish the group would meet more often than once a month; I'd have a much better chance at attending. It would be great to become involved in some of the national outreach for education of critical thinking such as the JREF distributes. I would also enjoy discussing current events in the skeptical community such as recent blog posts on various topics. ”

“ I found most everyone friendly. It was nice to discuss whatever came up and hear different views while learning some new things as well. One rude person has me questioning whether or not I would like to attend again, I am undecided. I do have a few suggestions: 1 It would be nice to have people bring a pen and paper for notes. There were subjects discussed that I would like to have written down for further investigation. 2 If possible, have people move around the table, or room so the entire group can meet and talk. 3 Remind people that we all chose to come to the club, we are all on the same team (so to speak). Granted there will be debating, but hopefully everyone will be courteous of others thoughts and points of views, even when they disagree with them. A polite climate for learning and enjoyment. ”

“ I am terrible with names and only remember that of the woman across from me, and then only because the name rang a bell when I looked at the profiles. Thus I don't know the name of the man seated to my right, but he gave me one hell of a good idea because of his remarks about the basic unfairness of religions getting special legal treatment but athiests & agnostics not getting them. Someone is going to have to tell me his name. I liked what I could hear of his ideas. I've just spent an hour with my dictionary looking up several words and have come up with a crazy fun idea. Creating a protected "religion" honoring the word, "A". I've even thought of how to set it up, copyright the name and talk to an ACLU attorney about securing legal protection. This whole idea is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but I'll bet it would work. The only problem is that the members would have to remember that this is a poke at "the man" and keep the beliefs "holy secrets". This is gonna be fun ”
