The ACA activities committee has planned another treat for ACA members: a day at the Schlitterbahn Warterpark Resort in New Braunfels. The event would start at Mike's house (log in for address and map) at 9am sharp, July 28th to carpool to New Braunfels and arrive at the opening at 10am when it's cooler and the crowds haven't yet hit the park. 

Invite family and friends. The more, the merrier. Adult tickets are around $40; kid tickets are around $30. There is some possibility that there will be enough people to get a group rate, which may save a few dollars per ticket. 

If you're going, coordinate with Mike via this link or using the contact information on the ACA Member Home Page so that he can help facilitate the event. The participants will be doing most of the decision making, however. Plan to spend most of the day and bring appropriate gear. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

ACA will have a booth at the 2007 Gay & Lesbian Pride Festival. The festival is part of our greater community and ACA has had a presence there for a number of years. It's a great way to educate people as to what atheism is and interact with the public on a personal level.

The festival will be June 9th from noon to 8pm at Waterloo Park (map). We will need volunteers to staff the event. Specifically, we'll have three shifts and we'll need 2-4 volunteers for each shift. The shift times are:

  • First Shift: 11:30am - 2:30pm (includes booth setup)
  • Second Shift: 2:30pm - 5:30pm
  • Third Shift: 5:30pm - 8:30pm (includes booth tear-down)

If you are able to volunteer, contact Don Baker with your preferred shift and your contact information (both phone and e-mail). He'll be in contact with you concerning logistics.

If you're not able to volunteer, consider coming to the festival, checking out the music, offering moral support to the ACA folks, and seeing what other community groups are there.

Mike will host the ACA Movie Night at his home every 1st Friday of the month 7:30pm - 10:00pm. Mike has a projector setup and he can accommodate a handful of folks. Attendees are encouraged to bring snacks for themselves or to share. Attendees are also encouraged to RSVP. 

The movie night will focus mostly on movie watching and less on socializing. Titles will vary and will be selected from movies available by participants at the beginning of the event. Not every movie will have an atheist theme. 

Please contact Mike via the this link should you have further questions. Mike's home is the same location as the 2006 Winter Solstice Party and the 2007 Vernal Equinox Party. Mike's address, a map to his house, and his phone number are available on the ACA member login page.

ACA will have a monthly Bowling Night at 300 Austin lanes on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, starting at 7pm. It's open bowling and they have food and plenty of other entertainments to check out. (If you're there at 7pm, meet at the front door.) 

The ACA bowling night will be at:

  • 300 Austin Lanes (info)
  • 9504 N IH 35 (Southbound feeder, just North of Rundberg)
  • Austin, TX 78753
  • (512) 834-7733
  • map

As for prices, it appears that it costs $4 per person per game up to 9pm and $3 dollars after 9pm. $4 for shoe rentals. Depending on whether you eat or drink, you can expect to spend about $20.

Atheist Community of Austin

The Atheist Community of Austin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting positive atheism and the separation of church and state. The ACA serves the local Austin community through outreach programs, providing informational resources and various volunteer activities. In addition, the ACA serves the community-at-large through free online portals including informational wikis, regular audio/video podcasts and interactive blogs.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.
