Time to resurrect this old zombie thread.

We need BRRAAAIIINNNZZ!!

Come to Sceptics in the Pub on Wednesday, 10 November if you're in the Johannesburg area.  We will be hosting another event in Sandton at the Brazen Head (corner of Linden and Grayston Drive).

More details ... http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=166293530067119

(Yeah, I know that the zombie thing is getting a bit old but I'm still in a Halloween mood)  Smiley

Eish, I left this too late.  Sorry about the late notice, but tonight, 1 December 2010 is the next SITP Joburg.  (Mumbles something about moving house and work and stuff ...)   Wink

The event details on Facebook can be found here.

19h00 at Dros Edenmeadow, near to Greenstone (map)
We will have Deon Barnard there and we'll discuss his new freethinking podcast Primordial Soup.

Come along and ask a few questions - like maybe why the url is "soop" Wink

And, as usual, we'll discuss anything and everything sciencey or sceptical in the news.

See you there...

2011 is already ageing rapidly and we haven't had a Joburg SitP yet.  Shocked

The February 2011 meeting will be on Wednesday, 2 February from 19h00 at the Dros in the Cresta shopping centre in Blackheath.  We're going west for the first time in several months to catch-up with our sceptic friends in the west who've felt a bit left-out for a while.

Facebook event.

It's difficult to find a location that everyone is happy with, so for the time being we'll carry on rotating between the east, west and Sandton.

The March meeting of the Joburg Sceptics in the Pub is scheduled for 2 March from 19h00.

The venue is up for a vote so let us know where you think it should be.  So far McGinty's (opposite the Morningside hospital) is in the lead.

If you're looking for the Facebook event, it's here.

Join us for critical thinking and critical drinking.

I will update this post with the final venue as soon as it's known.

And McGinty's it will be.  I hope that you'll join us on Wednesday, 2 March from 7PM.

If anybody could be so kind as to enlighten me on what happens at these meetings Huh? It's a bit of a stretch for me driving from Pretoria just to join a group of okes for a drink or two.

there is drinking.  and generally the same themes are re-hashed:
1.  why religion is stupid
2.  why we hate the religious woo
3.  the flaws in religion
4.  creationist vs. evolution
5.  iphone vs. blackberry
6.  what a douche old telly is, and how long ago he has trolled the forum


various individuals have their field of expertise.  which they will share.  those of us, who are not educated to the hilt, sit quietly and nod occasionally. 

you could, of course, make a drinking game out of it.  have a shot everytime the terms 'woo' is used.  you might get knackered.

you can, of course, hang tight and wait for the SITP to come around your way, there is one in Irene monthly if I'm not mistaken.

there is allso the Rumble in Pub, which is not related to this forum, but a lot of same people attend.

Deezil, the Pretoria one is held every third Saturday of the month, depending on the vote for location it changes. Recently it's been more at Irene Mall, previously we had it in the Moot, Menlyn, and Brooklyn.
I'll be posting a new poll and event soon, you'll receive a notification from Facebook and bluegray puts it in the announcements of the forum, which shows up on the front page.

Not yet. Went from a week, to two, and looks like it's going to be three.
