Dragon Con and SkepTrack 2018

So, who's going to Dragon Con this year?!

Me, me, me, meeeee!!!

Who else?!

What I like to call "Mardi Gras for Geeks" is not merely about science fiction and fantasy (though, that is most of it). It also includes a track of Skeptical talks, panels, and other events!

It's going on from August 30th to September 3rd, 2018; in Atlanta, Georgia.

More information about the whole con: http://www.dragoncon.org/

More info about SkepTrack at the con will be here: http://skeptics.dragoncon.org/
Though, as of writing, the 2018 info isn't on there, yet. You can see the 2017 content to get an idea of what it's going to be like.

I'll be flying in from a trip to Disney World (and Universal Orlando, but mostly Disney), so I won't have much time for pre-con activities, if there are any, this year. I know that sometimes the local skeptics in the area throw a few things together.

If you happen to be a Cakewrecks.com fan, I don't know if Jen and John might be there, but her parents do live in Atlanta. Otherwise, they live in Orlando....

No. The character is simply called The Doctor. You might be thinking of the Peter Cushing character that was named Dr. Who. Or, maybe the person on first.

After that, you can chill and relax for a while, because you will soon discover that no matter WHAT you decide to do, you will have a great time!!

The Overpriced Photo Op Schedule is starting to form: https://store.epicphotoops.com/dragon-con/2018

Might be a couple of days for the full schedule to fill in.
