Win a ticket to the Global Atheist Convention!

School is starting up again, and so are Secular Society events! Come renew your membership at the Clubs and Societies Expo in Wilson Hall for $2, where we also have an exciting opportunity for you! We will be raffling off a concession ticket to this year’s Global Atheist Convention! Valued at $270, this ticket grants you the opportunity to see many distinguished speakers and fantastic comedians, including Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, Leslie Cannold, PZ Myers, Lawrence Krauss, Eugenie Scott, Peter Singer, Catherine Deveny, Fiona Patten, and Ben Elton!

The convention runs from Friday April 13 to Sunday April 15 (mid-semester break), with lunch and tea breaks fully catered. To enter the raffle, you just need to buy a ticket at our stall on Thursday February 23 or Friday February 24, between 11am and 3pm. Tickets are $5 each, or three for $10. Note: you must possess a valid concession card or student card in order to gain entry to the convention. The raffle will end in week two.

Also, everyone who signs up during O-Week (whether a new or returning member) is automatically entered into the draw to win a copy of Richard Dawkins’s book, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution. More reason to show up!

We will also be celebrating the new school year with our famous Flying Spaghetti Monster Mixer on Thursday March 8 at the Queensberry, so come dressed as your favourite deity or religious figure. Prizes will be awarded for best costume! But more on this event later.

If you’re interested in getting involved with the club this year, and are able to help out with Club Days, please let us know by sending an email to
