CFI Saskatoon/Saskatoon Freethinkers Meetup-And Now For Something Completely Different

Posted in Event, Saskatoon on July 28, 2011 by saskskeptic

Announcing a new Meetup for CFI Saskatoon/Saskatoon Freethinkers!

WhatAnd now for something completely different …
When: Sunday, August 14, 2011 11:30 AM

Where: Venice House
906 Central Avenue
Saskatoon, SK S7N 2G8
306-373-6666

This meetup we are taking things easy — it is the dog days of summer after all — and having some laughs with a screening of Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

Hopefully, there will be also some tidbits of movie trivia and interesting facts about the Pythons to share!  We may have a trivia contest for awesome prizes, so bring your intimate knowledge of Python sketches and such.

 
Note: Attendees start gathering and visiting at 11:30 am. We begin the formal meeting (announcements then the presentation/discussion) at about 12:00 pm (after meal orders have been taken). You are not required to order any food or drink. If you do order something, remember to tip the waitress because they have a lot to keep track of with our group. Also, we use the large side room at Venice House for free and they have been quite accommodating. We bring a sample of our library to the regular meetings and you are welcome to borrow something. If you have any specific requests, please contact our Secretary, Selene. We also take donations at every meeting and sometimes have items for purchase.

2329 York Ave, Saskatoon, SK (map) two streets West of Clarence Ave and 3 houses South of Ruth St

This is potluck, bring your own meat/booze or what ever else you want.  You should also probably bring your own chairs and bug spray.

We can provide ice, deck fridge, & dishes.  We also have a fire pit, wood, & marshmallows.

The forecast is for scattered showers.  We will move inside if we need to.

This may turn into a non-psychic fair so bring your magic tricks and divining crystals.

Bring any games you want to play.

Hope to see you there.

Saskatoon Freethinkers-Taste of Saskatchewan Pub Night

Posted in Event, Saskatoon on July 20, 2011 by saskskeptic
Taste of SK / Pub night 
will happen on Thursday, July 21, 2011
When: Where:
Thursday, July 21, 2011
6:00 PM
Taste of Sask.  Between Broadway bridge and the Bessborough Hotel

Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, or just have a seat on nature’s chair-the grass! We will be parked about 10 meters back of the stage(so we can still see the bands) between the bike path and the river. We will bring some extra blankets and chairs for those who don’t bring them. There are free bands playing all day and evening, but usually not so loud you can’t talk. And 32 restaurants! It’s the only time of year you can have a beer in the park without being in a beer garden. How’s that for a former temperance colony? In the even of rain, we will convene at Winstons(2 blocks away). My cel # is 220-5152(Blaine) so if you have trouble finding us, just give me a ring and I will give you precise directions when you get there.
