What will happen when the YAS and the Skeptic Zone finally meet?

Will they all spontaneously combust?

Will their creative energies combine to create a super massive black hole?

Will it come to pass that the age-old Melbourne/Sydney rivalry can never be resolved?

Or will the Sydney team finally discover that Jack Scanlan is in fact a retired professor of archeaology moonlighting as a 17 year old genius in an TIKTAALIK hoodie?

Dave the Happy Singer; unable to contain his excitement at the thought of visiting Melbourne in May

Find out soon, as some representatives from the Skeptic Zone plan to make the trek to Melbourne in May.

This includes Richard Saunders and myself, but also Kylie Sturgess all the way from Perth, plus our very good friend and regular special guest, Dave the Happy Singer.

We are planning to mosey down for some interviews, a talk or two, and a few beers with our very good friends, the YAS. Not forgetting of course, Joel Birch, Catherine Donaldson, and Matt from ilikeportello blogspot, plus whoever else we have met along the way!

We need some help however. Richard and I would like to give a double-header talk, but we need advice on a venue. Can you help? Leave a comment if you can.

Richard does a talk entitled “Scepticism 101” and mine is “Dr Rachie Reports; adventures of a scientist in an alternative medicine world“. (We anticipate we will probably be in town for a weekend in May).

Oh, and if you have a few extra dollars floating around just aching for a good cause, we would sincerely appreciate help with raising funds for our plane tickets. Even if you can chuck 20 bucks our way, it all helps a group of dedicated volunteers, doing our best to spread the word of science and reason. (There’s a paypal button on our website).

So hold on to your hats, tell your friends, and watch out Melbourne!

Psst! I can’t wait to meet @jacksmother
