What's the talk about?

As discussed at our last meet up we will now be setting on a Skeptics in the Pub social event every third Sunday of the month, these events will kick off earlier than our usual and will have a much more informal feel about them, so there no need to turn up on the dot.

Typical features will include our drinks raffle and an Oh so solid Skeptics in the Pub quiz, where you'll be scratching your skull raw over some of the most ridiculously juvenile conundrums ever to make their way out of a creationist web-forum.

 
As well as serving as a social event for skeptical thinkers to gather together informally over a few drinks this secondary event will also serve the following functions: - 
  • As a discussion group for contentious issues arising from talks,
  • An alternative day, allowing skeptics from further afield to attend, where they might otherwise not be able to.
  • An occasional alternative slot for speakers who find it difficult to commit to our usual mid-week slot (owning to distance and travel time).
  • And act as a slot or platform for any panel-style debates, we might be planning for 2013.
  • In the meantime, Stoke Skeptics will continue to provide regular events on the first Wednesday of the month (subject to speaker availability).
(£3 per head gets you a ticket in our drinks raffle, two lucky attendees will get a FREE pint on the night. Monies accrued will be spent on prizes for our pub quiz.)
