First Johannesburg Sceptics in the Pub
Thanks to The Skeptic Detective, Monday night saw the first Sceptics in the Pub evening for Johannesburg Sceptics. The initial turnout was … modest … but there are already plans to grow the Johannesburg community and raise interest. As a blogger, I found it invaluable to discuss ideas with like minded individuals to gauge if potential blog topics are likely to be received well. But far more importantly I got to know a bit more about my fellow sceptic, her interests and recent discoveries.
For those of you able to meet one week night per month and are interested in attending or proposing a new venue location, join us in the planning of these events and have your say (you can also leave comments here if you’d prefer). It is a social event by us and for us so let your voice be heard. If you aren’t able to make it to Johannesburg, gauge interest and see if you can start a Sceptics in the Pub in your area.
For those of you visiting this post looking for details of an upcoming Sceptics in the Pub meeting, you can join the South African Skeptics Facebook group, or you can keep an eye-out on the South African Skeptics Forum for new details. We may soon set-up a dedicated site for the meetings but until then, these two places are your best sources of information. If you would like to know more about meetings which have taken place since this first meeting, they are linked below in the comments.
