A night of unbelievable fun

Next month, on 10-11 August, Minnesota Atheists will be hosting a regional atheist conference. If you’re within driving distance of St. Paul, you should go! They’ve got a fine list of speakers, and for something completely different, are sponsoring a baseball game on Friday night, so you can join a bunch of atheists in swilling beer and eating hot dogs and watching a ball get tossed around.

I know, it’s hosted in a city called St. Paul, which isn’t so cool, and the baseball team is called the Saints. But just for this night, the team is being renamed the Ain’ts, so it’ll be OK. Also, St Paul’s original name was Pig’s Eye…and although the city hasn’t agreed to revert the name just for us, there’s no reason we can’t call it that among ourselves. So let’s meet in Pig’s Eye, Minnesota next month!

You can download the meeting registration form, and here’s a form with a coupon for a free hot dog for the baseball game.

    I thought Mr. Foot said we where not allowed to have fun at conferences. More seriously, the one weekend all summer I am out of town is the 10th and 11th. I even live in Pig’s Eye! I think I am going to have to cry.

    Hmm, a conference within a day’s drive. The timing’s less than ideal, but I might try to make it, especially if some of the regulars are going. Anyone?

    I don’t know that I’m a regular around here, but I am definitely going! Probably going to skip the game, though – baseball is just too damn boring for me.

    When I saw the headline, I thought you were going to be promoting the upcoming cute kitty film festival…

    Did somebody say free hot dogs?

    Nah, not so hungry.
