Today's Starter Topic: OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS! Email coordinator at:

[masked]

. . . for ideas. If you've read a book, article or have a suggested YouTube video for us to view and discuss, use above email to inform me. I may give up to 20 minutes per presenter to share and moderate questions in that time frame.

You do not necessarily need to have read or watch the suggested videos reading materials to participate in discussion. Our discussion will broaden out to any timely topic that is on each of our mind. Starter topics are just ice breakers. Those who have watched the videos or read the suggested materials will have the first shot in discussion.

Courtesy Coffee, cream and sugar provided. Conversations always lively and unconventional.

We may have a very brief update on the state of our local group HNPS, a round the table introduction of attendees and then discussion on our starter topic. After that we will wander to other topics of the day, time permitted.

Fidalgo Atheists--CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE--COVID-19 PANDEMIC

MEETINGS ARE CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO CORONA VIRUS OUTBREAK PANDEMIC AND ORDERS TO "STAY AT HOME".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Below announcement temporarily suspended and saved
for future meeting announcements)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fidalgo Atheists meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month. I schedule the meetings to run from 7:15 to 8:30 PM.

Currently the location is the upstairs meeting room at:
Village Pizza, 807 Commercial Avenue in Anacortes.

The space is reserved for 7 to 9 PM. Please reward Village Pizza for allowing us to use their space by ordering food and drink.

To ensure that everyone is heard we will observe the following practice. I will note each request to speak and recognize each person in the order that I am made aware of their wish to speak. When someone is speaking we will not respond or interrupt but will instead wait to speak when it is our turn. This arrangement, which applies to the moderator as well as others, insures that each person can comment without being befuddled by the distraction of interruption.

If you would like to make a presentation please contact me to arrange for a time slot. I set no limits on viewpoint or language although I will try to limit comment time to 2 minutes each time a person has the floor. So long as each participant is civil and respects the forgoing constraints, all viewpoints are welcome.

You're welcome to view videos I've selected on my YouTube Channel:
