Time is running out if you want to attend the three-day atheist party taking place at Half Moon Beach in Strasburg, VA (about an hour from Washington, D.C.) in mid-August!
It looks like a great opportunity to meet other non-religious people.
You can help the Beltway Atheists by signing up sooner rather than later.
More details are on the Atheist Days website!

Atheist Days (Plus, Panic at Skepchick HQ)

I swear I was going to have a post today all full of delicious skeptical content, but this morning my MacBook's hard drive apparently went kaput, making an awful clicking death rattle. I'm distraught and unable to focus on anything other than getting this fixed, because as many of you know, that laptop is the heart of Skepchick. Without it, I'll be forced to go back to my pre-Skepchick days of just being quietly skeptical in my head while actually performing physical activities outside in the real world. Perish the thought!
So, this post will be dedicated to one final push for all you nonbelievers to register for Atheist Days, a three-day festival taking place in Strasburg, Virginia, August 15-17. The organizers really need people to sign up in the next few days, so get to it people! I'm ordering my ticket today, and I can't wait to spend a weekend hanging out on a beach with a bunch of heathens listening to good music. Woo hoo!

You might have seen the atheist days flyers up in your local bars, and music clubs already. There are stacks of them all around this city...BusBoys & Poets, Black Cat, DC-9, Velvet Lounge, Galaxy Hut, & Iota Cafe n bar...just to name a few. Not too mention all the adds online.You may not be able to make it this year, or maybe this isn't your thing, but trust me when I say that this event is crucial for attracting new blood for the future of our movement, and it's a sign we're reaching out further and further into the greater community. We would appreciate if you only bought one (1) ticket ($60.00) to ensure that this event can proceed forward. I hope that's not asking too much. We need this by the end of the week.Thank you in advance.
Rock on people!!!!
