Hi Kristy, Thanks for the invite. I was just in the process of tracking down any local groups. I will certainly be signing on. That conference in March sounds great would love to attend. Do you know if there’s anything been organized at the local level, as in group bookings for fights and accommodation etc, or is it fend for yourself, which usually more convenient all round.
I also want to make sure you know about the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne next March. It's going to be huge! Over 1000 tickets have been sold already. Speakers will include: Richard Dawkins, Peter Singer, PZ Myers, AC Grayling, Phillip Adams and many more.
I hope you might be able to join us in Melbourne and also hope to see you in the Aussie group.
