That might even be a bigger draw card than the wonderful Hitch. (If that is possible) It would be to me, anyway. (Sorry Hitch)

Cool! Count me in... Will have to let the Aussies on RD.net know too (and send them all over to join, if they haven't already).

Edit: Done! http://www.richarddawkins.net/forum/...43361#p2043361

Hey Ecophysiologist! I found the AFA through RDFRS via a post by Layla!

Very glad I did too!




Re: Dawkins in Australia when?

It may happen, after all! From the AFA (Atheist Foundation of Australia) forum, the President David Nicholls writes:
Wonderful news everyone! A very exciting occasion is heading our way next year. Atheist Alliance International, of which the Atheist Foundation of Australia Inc is a member, is proposing we combine with them in having a convention in Melbourne in March 2010. With guest speakers the calibre of Richard Dawkins, Phillip Adams, Catherine Deveny, and yet to be finalised notable international and national presenters, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime event not to be missed. The convention will run from Friday night 12 March until Sunday midday with the cost of registration and meals about $250 per person and less for concessions. The theme is “The Rise of Atheism.”

We are still in the early planning stages but it would be of great assistance if those who have an interest in attending the convention contact head office by phone, letter or email and let us know. An estimate of numbers is critical to the success of this venture. Just write the word “Convention” in the subject line when replying by email.

See you there!

David

Very excited to have my first post be in this thread! (I recognise some of those names ). Oh hang on ... you might not recognise me with this name. It's the poster otherwise known as Aesthetic Atheist on RDF *waves* Thought I would adopt my dear old forum name for this place - it's been a while since I used it but thought I'd drag her out of retirement. Thanks to Durro for pointing me here.

Anyhoo .... I would camp out for tickets to this. As if having the good Prof here in my fair city wouldn't be exciting enough, I damn near went into a swoon when I saw Catherine Deveny's name - I worship the water that woman walks on!

Bring.it.on.

(I'll drop an email to head office to register my interest if someone could be kind enough to give me the email addy?)

Cheers fellow 'Strayans.

Lurker? Urgh! Have to change that quick-smart.

Meanwhile, I've found the email addy and send off my email to express my interest.

I sure hope this thing gets off the ground.

I understand there was sufficient interest expressed to confirm it. Look forward to meeting you there!
