Bay Area SSC Meetup 6/2

Join me at 5 PM on Sunday, June 2, for the traditional once-every-three-months big SSC Bay Area meetup. For a change of pace, it’ll be in San Francisco this time around.

Meet on the grass near the tennis courts at Mission Dolores Park (near the 16th Street Mission BART station).

EDIT: Blue tarp near restrooms near Hancock Street

I understand this conflicts with some other rationalist community events, but there are events every weekend for the next month or so, and I don’t want to not have meetups. We’ll probably be at the park until at least 7 or so, so feel free to come late.

Lurkers/newbies/people-who-aren’t-sure-if-they’re-welcome-or-not are welcome!

    Not relevant to the meet-up, it’s just that it always makes me smile when I see overtly religious names from San Francisco. So that one made me go “Our Lady of Sorrows?” and looking it up, yes, the original mission was dedicated to St Francis of Assisi but also locally known as “Mission Dolores” because of a nearby creek named for Our Lady of Sorrows.

    And by “grass near the tennis courts” you actually mean we’re all going to take a turn on that giant slide, right?

    Are only regulars invited, or are lurkers welcome? (long time lurker who recently moved to the Bay Area here)

    So folks don’t get lost/misdirected, we should be more specific than “the grass near the tennis courts”. That’s a swath of area that’s almost as wide as a city block:

    Maybe a specific corner (e.g. SE)?

      I’m trying not to say anything I can’t stick to, because I haven’t scouted the park out yet and there might be pre-existing things going on in places. But how about a loose default location is where Hancock Street touches the park?

    Will there be an easy way to identify the group, like a sign or something?

  6. Anyone interested in carpooling up from the South Bay?

    ah, I wish I had seen this before, totally would have come. Might as well throw this out there, if anyone lives in SF and is open to meeting internet strangers – reach me at dataviolence at
