Drinking Skeptically -Every 3rd Wednesday-For those FULLY VACCINATED!

Needs a location

Salem reported 9 attendees for the February meeting and we enjoyed the use of the private meeting room! Celebrate! All parties enjoyed a nice meal and drinks and getting to know each other!

If I believe less than 8 will show, I will have to call in and cancel private room reservation in restaurant a few days before this meeting. If that happens, please follow instructions below:

Please wait for other parties at front desk for a shared booth. Salem Smith and I will be there and we'd be there for sure and will wait to 6:30 pm to see if anyone shows.

I (Monty Vonn) do plan on attending this meeting; Tom is still wisely holding out. Omicron cases has significantly dropped to much lower numbers, but sadly these numbers are still higher than early summer of 2021 and November of 2021!

After seeing the rapid drop in numbers and projections showing a bottoming out by March, I am inclined to show in person to our March 3rd Wednesday meeting and future meetings thereafter, barring any surprises!

DUE TO POPULAR CONCERN, AND AS AN INCENTIVE to GET VACCINATED- MEETING IS OPEN ONLY TO PARTICIPANTS FULLY VACCINATED and BOOSTED! If you are not yet fully vaccinated, and have signed up below, please remove your RSVP request. Thank You!

WE DO HAVE THE "Quiet" CONFERENCE ROOM for the rest of 2022, reserved for the third Wednesday of every month, but to hold them we need at least 8 people to show, otherwise it is my duty to call Bob's Burger and Brew to cancel room reservation a few days earlier.

Have dinner, conversation and your favorite beer (or beverage of your choice) with other skeptics from Bellingham and beyond!

If you have topic suggestion for future meetings, bring up at end of meeting or email me at [masked]!

Whatcom Freethinker's Meetup CANCELLED FOR NOW DUE TO CORONA VIRUS OUTBREAK

Location visible to members

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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(temporarily suspended)
Our discussion will broaden out to any timely topic that is on each of our minds. Starter topics are just an ice breaker. Those who have watched the videos, read the information links or read the book or articles will have the first shot in starting our conversation.

We currently meet at the Cordata Community Food Coop, Cordata, near Whatcom Community College on the first Friday of each month. You will find the stairs to the 2nd Floor "Local Roots" room on the SE corner of the store near the last register next to the deli area. At the top of stairs, turn right into the room.

Enjoy free flowing discussion on Politics, Religion, Science, Ethics, and any other controversial subject that comes to mind.

We also encourage attendees to share their life story that lead their journey to the 'Land of Freethought', Free Inquiry, Skepticism towards cultural stories, norms & traditions and to the admiration of the scientific method as the only reliable means of finding answers to our probing questions and common sense solutions to humanity's current problems.

If you wish to challenge this underlying assumption, please feel free to join us and explain, as first and foremost, we are freethinkers, open to rethink our stance, but not so open that our brains fall out! Unsurprisingly, we would anticipate a rational explanation to your challenge backed up by evidence (humm - catch 22?)

Suggestions for future meeting's starter topics are encouraged. If you have a book that you have finished and are prepared to share it with us, please email me at [masked], and if approved, I will include it in a future announcement and perhaps give you 20 minutes to share and to open for discussion.

See you there!
