Just thought I'd throw this out there...a central AB skeptics group has just started up for Red Deer (and area) this past Wednesday. They plan to have occasional get togethers so we can meet and get to know one another. There's only 7 members, but they're already trying to get a meeting this Fri or Sat. The site is http://www.meetup.com/Central-Alberta-Skeptics/ So if anyone is interested...
Apparently, Edmonton and Calgary already have groups up and running, for those in that area.

Hello! Born and raised in Edmonton, moving to Red Deer at the end of the month. Found this site through my search for Red Deer Atheism.

AGORA starts this friday at the Princess Theatre in Edmonton - I posted the times on the topic thread - Meetup anyone? Sunday Matinee?

Hi, everyone moving to southern Alberta next month.

Haha... The name Picklemonkey is a long story, involving an ex girlfriend who was taking archeology and always got all worked up whenever people would say that aliens built the pyramids. I teased her all the time with an ongoing story about how half-pickle, half-monkey alien Gods created the pyramids and seeded life on earth.

I'll definitely keep watching what's going on with this get together, and I hope to meet some more folks from around here!

Welcome Picklemonkey...not sure where some of you come up with these names (I'm assuming your mother didn't come up with that (^_^)). Hopefully you can make it to the get together we're thinking of having. I'm kinda guessing if it happens it'll be end of Sept...looks like most members here are having spring fever due to the response so far.

Hey! Another atheist in Alberta here. Moving to Red Deer in June. :)

June works really well for me too. I am planning on attending an event at Red Deer College on June 20th anyway, and it would be easy for me to extend my stay. I'm looking forward to meeting everybody. :)

June would be O.K. for me if we're talking before on or before the 27th. After that it depends on the weather as haying starts. Otherwise, end of Sept should be good.
Also I've since collected a couple "Alberta Atheist" friends via Facebook that may be interested as well.
As far as organizing, I'm willing to help if anyone has any ideas. Or maybe we should just keep it very casual and meet somewhere informal? I would suggest not somewhere with loud music as I'm thinking the point is to visit...or maybe a park or someone's backyard? I'd be willing to offer my place, it's reasonably close (as in 10 km) from hwy 2, but is out in the country and another 30 min from Red Deer, so not sure what people would think about that. And I haven't told my wife this either, but I ?think? she'd be O.K with it as long as it didn't get too big. Anyways, just a few suggestions and if people have any other, please chime in.
Now I guess we wait and see Glen...springtime in AB, people may be preoccupied at the moment.
Oh and as a final note, I just started making wine this year, I'd be willing to offer (turned out good...in my opinion) some and also make some of it into coolers if any are interested. My son also will be just finished a mixology course and may be willing to practice on people as well (^_^). Of course non-alcohol get together is fine too if that's what you people want.

Unfortunately Nick Clegg has to spoil it by releasing the rather simpering announcement, "I have enormous respect for people who have religious faith." It reeks of major backpedal. Why, exactly, should anyone be required to RESPECT anyone simply because they follow a particular religion? It's quite the opposite for me. Finding out someone is religious tends to knock them down a notch in my estimation of them.
