I’m pleased to announce the first (of hopefully many) Anchorage meetup for:
- the Anchorage Skeptics
- Pharyngula Fans
- Bad Astronomy Buddies
- Skepchick readers
- And anyone else interested in science and skeptical thinking.
We will meet on Thursday, March 20, at 7:00 PM, in the cafe at Barnes and Noble on Northern Lights Blvd. in Anchorage. The cafe serves the usual gamut of coffee and tea (in both high-test and decaf versions), juices, soft drinks, muffins, pastries, and so on.
You can get a map if this one won’t do and you don’t already know where it is.
Among those who are planning to attend: Zach of the When Pigs Fly Returns blog, Scott of Coherent Lighthouse, at least a couple people from the Alaska Science Teachers Association, two regulars from the Pharyngula comments threads, two people who have actually met the Bad Astronomer, a local veterinarian who practices evidence-based medicine, and of course, yours truly, the BCS.
If you don’t know any of us, that’s fine - come anyway! Look for the group that has a white Apple MacBook with a sticker on it that says JREF:
The agenda for the meeting is to hang out, shoot the breeze, and plan the next such get-together. I will be sharing some material relating to an upcoming Mythbusters show, I’d like to have Zach explain how pterosaur arms work, and hopefully we can convince Scott and Zach to bring some dinosaur art to show.
