Our local Monthly Gathering (MG) is usually held at 7:30 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month, with the exception of months when other major events are planned. The MGs feature speakers on a variety of subjects and are open to the public. If you’re a member, we hope you’ll come to the MG. If you’re not a member and are thinking of joining, please come to a monthly gathering and see what we’re all about.
The locations will sometimes vary, but we will meet in March and April at the Shoreline Fire Department’s Training Center. Our large meeting room is on the ground floor, and ample free parking is available.
The address is:
Shoreline Fire Department
17525 Aurora Avenue North
Because we’ll be having a special party for all of our members in May, we will not hold an MG that month.
March 16th, 7:30 p.m.
The March MG featured a local Mensan, Bruce Lee, as our speaker. His topic was “Sex, Seattle Sounders, and the Southern-Fried Vegan.”
April 20th, 7:30 p.m.
In April, we’re pleased to welcome Brian Boston, who will speak on “The Rumor Mill: Finding Fact from Fiction on the Web.”
The size and sheer amount of information on the Web, coupled with the ability of anyone to add cheaply to that pool, means that facts can be covered by equally compelling fiction. How do you determine what is true and what is an attractive falsehood? We’ll look how you can confirm what you find and discount the rest.
