Important SKEPTICON 2019 dates:
5th December: Skeptics Trivia Night at The Clyde Hotel. Hosted by Tony Pitman and Ken Greatorex, this is a fund-raiser, at $15 per head. It’s not strictly a Skepticon event, and not just for Skepticon visitors. However, with our regular locals and regional, interstate and overseas visitors participating, this fifteenth annual Vic Skeptics Trivia night should be fun. Meal from 6:00 pm, eyes down at 7:15.
6th December: Conference commencement and “meet and greet” at The Dan O’Connell Hotel.
7th December: Two Day conference commences at Carrillo Gantner Theatre, University of Melbourne Swanston Street
