The Cross Canada Skeptical Smackdown is almost here!

The Cross Canada Skeptical Smackdown is back… and this year more cities are participating than ever before.

The CCSS is a British-style pub-quiz that occurs every year on or around Pi-Day (March 14th) in multiple locations across Canada with local and national bragging rights at stake.

Form a team of up to four players and come down to the closest event near you. (Players are also welcome to come on down to the venue and form a team at the event.)

There are six events across Canada this year.  As of this release some details are still TBD on some events, but if you keep your ear to the ground and follow your normal local skeptical channels, you should catch wind of the specific whens and wheres.

All events will be occurring between Wednesday March 14th and Sunday March 18th specific times and places as currently confirmed are below:

Halifax  TBA  TBA  TBA
Niagara Region Mahtay Café  TBA  TBA
North Bay  TBD  TBA  TBA
Ottawa Foolish Chicken March 14th  TBA
Vancouver Billy Bishop Legion March 14th 7:30
Winnipeg Norwood Hotel March 14th 7:00


Updates to TBAs and TBDs will be made on an ongoing basis at the Asshole Skeptic’s Blog.

Participation is free!

A new champion will be named this year as the champion team for the past two years running is missing a core member. Come on out and give it your best. Have fun an maybe walk away as the new national champion!  Email for more info.
