Brisbane Skepticamp July 19

Brisbane Skeptics in the Pub will be running a Skepticamp event on July 18 at the Hamilton Town Hall, cnr Rossiter Parade and Racecourse Road.

Everyone from casual skeptics to experienced commentators can participate, filling 15 minute slots on a topic of their choice.

Special guests at the Camp include Loretta Marron OAM, multiple Skeptic of the Year winner for her work as a health campaigner and as part of the Friends of Science in Medicine, who will open the event. And to close it will be John Cook, researcher at UQ and operator of the excellent Skeptical Science website that debunks climate change myths.

There will also be the traditional Cupcake Competition, with a prize for the best and tastiest science or skeptical-themed cupcake. No homeopathic flavours please.
