The first event at the conference is the SGU Quiz Show on the Friday night.

The Quiz Show will be run by George Hrab (from the Geologic Podcast) and feature multi-choice questions for the SGU rogues.

We need your help - George is putting the questions together and wants submissions.The questions can be anything related to geek culture, science and skepticism. They must be multi-choice - A, B, C, D - obviously with one correct answer.

Submit your questions to George by emailing him: geo@geologicrecords.net with "SGU Quiz Show" in the subject line.

Let's see if we can get some uniquely kiwi questions in to stump the rogues!

  • Studio/ensuite room with queen bed –NZD$90.00 (incl GST) per night (limited number subject to availability)

University Hall is located at 30 Whitaker Place, so the Hall is a short walk from the conference venue.

The delegate accommodation flier is available if you want to see the advertising spiel. If that all sounds like what you're after download the accommodation reservation form and get it back to them.  The contact details you'll need are on the form.

The Skeptics Guide to the Universe and George Hrab and will be arriving in Wellington on December 1st and travelling north for the following week before attending the conference.  While in Wellington there will be an opportunity for an exclusive VIP dinner with Geo, Steve and the Rogues.

Last year we ran the VIP dinner as a Blind Auction where people would place a bid and the top bids won. The trick here is that no one else knows how they are doing until after bids close.
