(Formerly known as "Atheists Anonymous"...) On the second Saturday of each month, we gather and engage in full group discussion in the comfort of a private room. This is a little different than our other monthly events in that it is a structured meeting with some ground rules for group discussion. The motivation is to connect with more of each other, which is difficult to accomplish if we're fractured into several small conversations.
New members: You'll hear a brief overview of the meetup and then have an opportunity to introduce yourself and get to know other active members, so please join us and share your thoughts and experiences. Shy members: Just come and spectate. You don't have to speak if you're not comfortable.

• WELCOME BRIEFING
Meeting purpose, agenda and ground rules. LV Atheists Meetup overview for newcomers.
• INTROS/OPENING RANTS
Share with us a little bit about yourself and what brings you to the group. Or sound off-- what do you have to say to an audience of atheists?
• DISCUSSION TOPIC OF THE MONTH
How was the Grand Spring Celebration at Springs Preserve? (http://www.meetup.com/atheists-30/events/173473232/) What ideas do you have for an effective, community-building event for atheists? Or does this all rub you wrong because it smells too much like "atheist church"?
Final thoughts, meetup announcements/reminders, send-off.
