Minnesota Regional Atheist Conference! August 10-11, 2012
American Atheists and Minnesota Atheists will be sponsoring two exciting events in August!
Friday, August 10, 2012, 7:00 p.m. - Atheist Professional Baseball Game.
“A Night of Unbelievable Fun!” at a St. Paul Saints baseball game. The St. Paul Saints are one of seven professional baseball teams in the American Association league. The team’s co-owner and “Team Psychologist” is comedian Bill Murray.
Our banners will hang in the stadium and we will rename the team the “Mr. Paul ’Aints.” The team will wear “Mr. Paul ’Aints” jerseys during the game, which will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for us. The letter “S” will be covered up on the word “Saints” throughout the ballpark and we’ll have an information/greeting table at the main entrance. American Atheists president Dave Silverman will throw out the first ceremonial pitch of the game which will be followed by a fireworks display.
The game will be played at Midway Stadium, 1771 Energy Park Drive, St. Paul, MN 55108. Public bus transportation is available to downtown St. Paul, or it’s about a $10 cab ride from downtown St. Paul. Arrive early at 5:00 p.m. for a tailgate party in the parking lot.
Special package rate tickets are available in the Outfield Reserved section for $12 (you’ll also receive a voucher for FREE hot dog and soda at the game!). The special rate group tickets will be available for a limited time so get them while they last. Here is the link for the special group rate ticket (code word is “atheist” after you go through the Captcha screen): www.saintsgroups.com Children under 2 who don’t require a seat are free. You can also buy tickets for different seats by visiting the St. Paul Saints website.
